let me put it to you this way ……..by Christian beliefs and writings , god could have put Jesus anywhere in the world , anywhere ! …………but he chose the most fucked up place on the planet for him to begin his teachings , because that was where the need was most . Its still the most fucked up place on earth , and revelations has the battle of revelation , as well as the anti christ being in the middle east . That said , I think the US , China , and Russia , should carve up that whole area and be done with it . Between the three of us , we would be unstoppable , nd the bullshit would stop once and for all , wipe out all of them if needed .
