THE "ANTI-UNITED STATES ALLIANCE"?
I'm always nervously looking out to identify countries the United States have beef with in anticipation of the prophecies of Revelation 17 and 18 being fulfilled in which 10 kings (nations) destroy Babylon. Of course there may never be a consensus on who the prophesied Babylon of Revelations actually is, but for the sake of argument I think we can generally conclude that in terms of being a physical place that the modern-day Babylon would be the United States.
For those of you who are interested in this topic but immediately get turned off by anything referencing the Bible or religion in general I implore you to read on, especially if you live in the United States, since as we all know there are real things going on in the world that we need to keep an eye on, and although my conclusion that 10 nations will ultimately teamup to fight America may be based on prophesy this article for the most part is not Biblically based. Moreover the nations put on this list have not to date formed such an "alliance", and I actually got the title from an article I came across recently.
I split the nations on this list up into three tiers, Red, Orange and Yellow, based on the current severity of their fluctuating beef with the United States, and as such I will update the list regularly based on news received from the international front.
Of course the red list has to began with America's longtime rival, Russia. In recent years things seemed to be more or less cool between the two superest of powers until recent drama like Syria and more importantly the Ukraine. Contrary to popular belief Russia's nuclear arsenal is actually superior to the United States', and the idea of these two actually going at it is the one thing on Earth I like to think about the least, Moreover the funny thing about it these days is that Russia is being portrayed more as the peacemaker and good guy.
Actually I didn't know where to put Iraq on this list for a number of reasons. First off unlike Russia and North Korea they don't seem to have any missiles capable of hitting the homeland United States, and secondly isn't there supposed to be like a pro-US government in power in Iraq? When the Unites States invaded Iraq at the turn of the century they were successful in changing the power structure, but unfortunately Iraq has been in a perpetual state of civil unrest since, and in retrospect it now seems like things were more stable when the country was under the dictatorship of the assassinated Saddam Hussein. Moreover being that this nation seems to be the stronghold of the Islamic State it's safe to say that they don't have much love for America, meaning that the people in Iraq probably attribute much of the ongoing violence to Western intervention in some way, shape or form.
I don't know much about Yemen other than despite being a small and relatively powerless country it is also a regular victim of US air (drone) strikes, which tend to have large numbers of civilians casualties, and of course such actions can make anyone into your enemy.
Afghanistan is a nation that has been at "war" with the United States for over 10 years now but of course has nowhere near the military might of America. As such all of the fighting to date has been on Afghani soil.
Even though Latin America is relatively right at America's doorstep, more attention is always given to American military activities in the Middle East, probably because such intervention in Latin American, according to history, has been more clandestine. However this has not caused the leaders of Latin America countries to forget the past, and as such you have countries like Venezuela and Ecuador that occasionally accuse the United States of meddling in their affairs in the worst way.
One of the few countries that really seems to have developed a better relationship with the United States under the Obama Administration has been neighboring Cuba, which sits only 40 miles off the coast of Florida. Like North Korea, though small and seemingly and powerless against the United States, Cuba has a long history of not giving afuk and perhaps more alarmingly communism, which has allowed it to deal with countries like Russia in the past. Though on the surface in recent dealings it seems like the United States has become more sympathetic to Cuba perhaps one of the main underlying goal of this diplomacy is to make sure that small yet brave and strategically placed nation doesn't form a better relationship with the likes of Russia or Venezuela.
I'm not political insider nor a formal student of international politics; like most of you I just read the news and try to put things together, and when you bring Biblical prophecy into the mix of international relations things really look grim, especially for I would say the United States.
