From the 'this can't be good' department
I wake up to find a war going on.
Russia sends forces into Georgian rebel conflict

MEGVREKISI, Georgia (Reuters) - Tensions over Georgia's rebel territory of South Ossetia exploded on Friday when Georgia tried to assert control over the region with tanks and rockets, and Russia sent forces to repel the assault.
Georgia declared war on South Ossetia on Friday. Georgian airplanes launched attacks against the capital city Tskhinvali and the areas around. A line of vehicles with humanitarian aid was attacked as well. North Ossetian President Teimuraz Mamsurov was in one of the vehicles. There are skirmishes in regions where Russian peacekeepers are deployed. Many civilians are reportedly injured. The UN Security Council expressed concern about the worsening fighting in South Ossetia, but could not agree a Russian statement urging the warring sides to renounce the use of force.
Russian troops enter South Ossetia after Georgia offensive
MEGVREKISI, Georgia (AFP) — A Russian army convoy entered South Ossetia on Friday and Russian planes attacked a Georgian military base, reports said, after Georgian forces pounded the capital of the breakaway province and warned of "war" if Russia intervened.
Russia's three main news agencies said a convoy had crossed into South Ossetia.
I wake up to find rumors of wars going on:
'2 US aircraft carriers headed for Gulf'
THE JERUSALEM POST
Two additional United States naval aircraft carriers are heading to the Gulf and the Red Sea, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper Kuwait Times. Kuwait began finalizing its "emergency war plan" on being told the vessels were bound for the region.
The US Navy would neither confirm nor deny that carriers were en route. US Fifth Fleet Combined Maritime Command located in Bahrain said it could not comment due to what a spokesman termed "force-protection policy." While the Kuwaiti daily did not name the ships it believed were heading for the Middle East, The Media Line's defense analyst said they could be the USS Theodore Roosevelt and the USS Ronald Reagan.
Within the last month, the Roosevelt completed an exercise along the US east coast focusing on communication among navies of different countries. It has since been declared ready for operational duties.
By the way, that 'exercise' just completed was called "Operation Brimstone."
I have been saying for so long we are in the end times. By October we will be in the Tribulation. The end is near!!
Matthew 24:6- "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."
Revelation 6:3, 4 - "And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword." -
NOW is the time to get right with Jesus. Ask Him to forgive your sins, and ask Him to be the Savior of your life and Lord. Dedicate your life to Him as your refuge and you will know eternal bliss in His presence on That Day!
