Jesus told us the "beginning of birth pangs" signaling the start of the final age before the Kingdom of Heaven would be "wars and rumors of wars…nation against nation".
There was a time in history when nation rose against nation. The US had a cause to fight for called "nation building". But something happened after the Iraq War. No longer do we see national wars. We see jihadists from all over coming to wherever they can just to kill and to die, implosion of nations as people within those nation degenerate into absolute madness, for a cause that destroys itself and all who are part of it eventually. Wild Donkey Madness!
