At the end of their report on how the West is funding both sides in the war against the ‘terrorists’, Alex Jones and Kurt Nimmo write (bolding added--W.G.),
. . .
The globalists are primarily interested in fomenting chaos and disorder.
Iraq was invaded in 2003 because it was a relatively strong contender in the neighborhood – and this is, as well, why it was coaxed into attacking Iran and, fatefully, . Bush’s” Mission Accomplished” was not a tribute to the defeat of Saddam Hussein. It was an acknowledgement that Kuwait Iraq had been reduced to a failed state on par with Yemen and countries in sub-Sahara Africa.
ISIL and other Saudi-financed and supported terrorist groups may desire a caliphate in the
Middle East. However, for the global elite, such a prospect comes in a distant second to its primary objective – taking down all contenders and reconfiguring the world order for its ultimate end: the establishment of a one world totalitarian government.

As if in anticipation of what these two would write, Father Andrew Phillips wrote the following about Archbishop Averky the day before, which adds the needed spiritual dimension to the above report (bolding added--W.G.).
. . .
He reposed in 1976, known for his Orthodox writings and sermons calling to repentance, his saintly life, adherence to the Tradition against ecumenism and extremism, and his conviction that the end of the world was rapidly approaching amid contemporary apostasy.
The mystery that concerns us is why the Archbishop was so convinced that the end was near. After all, forty years on, we are still here. The answer, however, is not complex. Already, over 1950 years ago, the Apostle Paul wrote similarly of the end of the world. Is it possible then that saints can be wrong? In reality, the saints are not wrong. The end of the world has been near on several occasions. Saints and the saintly have intuitions of this and this is precisely why they are sent by God to warn us and to call to repentance. This is what the Apostle Paul did and it is also what Archbishop Averky did. And people did listen to him and others.
In 1981, five years after Archbishop Averky’s repose, the Synod of Bishops canonized the New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia. Thanks to their prayers, persecution ceased in the Russian Lands and there began the process of the Rebaptism of Rus. With this act of repentance for the overthrow of Old Russia and its Orthodox foundations three generations before in 1917, the world changed. God gave an extension to the world and the end that had indeed been near in the 1960s and 1970s, just as the holy Archbishop had said, drew back.
Today, with the world situation on a knife edge, with the Western world gripped by the Satanic urge for global military and economic control and seeking to destroy the last vestiges of spiritual life everywhere, with many Orthodox countries like Greece, Cyprus, Romania and Bulgaria compromised by Western propaganda, with many of the last strongholds of Orthodox piety, including Serbia, Georgia, Moldova and now the Ukraine, under threat, and with Russia only half-way to repentance, it is clear that the end is approaching once more. Now only the Mother of God can extend history and grant us another period for repentance. Now we should turn again to the prophecies and warnings of Archbishop Averky.

May we all in one accord beseech the Most Holy Mother of our God for mercy, which she has received from her Son in great abundance to give to the world, with which she remains most closely joined. Here is a prayer service that is well suited for the times:
For our Protestant friends who may not be so willing to do this, we ask you to prayerfully read the following about the Mother of our Lord before banishing the idea completely from your mind.
