Human flesh can only push so far, true. But isn't this what the Russians did in order to stop and beat the Germans.Chocobo_Blitzer said:Launching large scale attacks would seem near impossible with the current air and artillery power today. True you show that 200 million stat, but really, human flesh can only push so far.
True. I'm hoping they won't be able to equip themselves. However you shouldn't underestimate thier ability to do so.But of course, can't ignore the intergrated militia cells in europe. Though I think they would be hard pressed to equip themselves well.... if much.
I agree with this. In fact I see them having close ties with either Russia or China, in order to pull this off, although I didn't right it down. One reason is for purchasing of weapons, which those countries would be glad to sell.also, I'd believe this more if it mentioned the red star asians becoming involved, not necessarily on their side, nor ours. Much like the axis in WWII, merely allies for neutrality and to serve eachothers gains.
It seems unraelistic from a single country perspective. However, from the perspective of an Empire with 1.5 billion people it makes much more sense.Very neat read, but it doesn't seem tragicly realistic. Though I do believe Islamic extremist are a threat. But covering a scale to put the WWII russian front to shame? I can't buy it, really....
gladius said:As for Judeo-Christian prophecy, it talks about a terrible world leader who will arise out of the area of the former empire of Alexander the Great. Read it in Daniel Chapter 8.
If you noticed that most of the countries that today occupy the area of Alexander's former empire are now Muslims countries.
Keist IV said:This may be but I thought that this terrible world leader will be of a blonde hair and blue eyes nationality. I do not remember exactly where I heard or read this but I was under that understanding. If this is the case, I do not know if too many Muslims with blonde hair and blue eyes.
I disagree with why this would take place In Europe. The secularization of Europe proves that It is no longer a "Christian Enemy", and now with Israel being home to many Jews, It no longer symbolizes Judaism. No, I believe Europe, If the prophesy has any truth, would be the goal because It symbolizes progressiveness to the point of sinfulness. Think about It, Humanism and Materialism both emerged from Europe, both of which are opposite to the beliefs of Islam.
Remember, the early Muslims has respect for both Christians and Jews, the hate we see In many of them today is just a phenomenon In their geopolitical situation.

I would like to think the majority of muslims are understanding and wouldn't so easily convert to "Islamic extremism"
