Israel says the threat of a strike on Iran is working. According to the AFP, Ehud Barak says the threat of a military strike on Iran is preventing the Islamic republic from taking the final steps towards developing a nuclear bomb. The defense minister said on radio, "We are seeing with our own eyes the reason why Iran, which really wants to achieve a military nuclear capability, is not taking some of the steps defined by the IAEA as breaking the rules. One of the reasons is the fear of what will happen if, God forbid, the United States or maybe someone else acts against them."

U.S. Intelligence says Water Shortages Threaten Stability of Regions Around the World. According to Bloomberg, a U.S. intelligence report said that competition for increasingly scarce water in the next decade will fuel instability in regions such as South Asia and the Middle East that are important to U.S. national security. An all-out water war is unlikely in the next 10 years, as nations will be more likely to use water as a bargaining chip with each other. But as shortages become more acute, water in shared basins will increasingly be used as leverage, and the adoption of water as a weapon by states or terrorists will become more likely after 10 years.

The Bible says in Matthew 24:6-7 that in the last days, "And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places."
