“Wars and rumors of wars”

Independent says in an article of 2014, that US President Obama came to bomb seven countries in the six years since he was elected: Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria.

“Mr Obama was elected in 2009 partly of his opposition to the Iraq war and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize after he assumed office”, the article continues. Of course it wasn’t his fault that he was awarded that Price.

Recent news have told (true or not) that Obama has been bombing the Middle East every day in eight years time. Maybe so, I haven’t checked it, but if true one shouldn’t be too surprised. And moreover, the USA is not the only power engaged in wars.

These wars are not the first ones, neither the last. What is important though, is to keep a cool head, as Jesus advises us in Matthew 24:6: “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.”
