The Fourth Battle of Armageddon is about betrayal

Everyone has enemies, and we have dealt with them all our lives, but as the conflict reaches the Fourth Battle of Armageddon, what is so hard to deal with is that our allies are not there to help us--they seem to have betrayed us.

Betrayal is based on misunderstandings and different goals. In a family genocide, for example, our family never had the capacity or even the will to help us get our life. Everyone is dragged into the conflict and eventually, everyone is fighting for their lives, and no one knows who to trust.

This is the point where people die because they see no way out of their crisis.

If this was a battle, it is a rout, but worse, because all sides are overcome by fear and everyone will die unless they can find a way out of the crisis.

The first battle of Armageddon is based on a Moment of Choice where one person stands on the principles and that choice affects the security and support of another, who goes down into the games. With global Armageddon, that Moment of choice was was between George W. Bush and Saddam Hussein. Saddam Hussein stood on the principles that he was the legitimate president of a sovereign nation, and that he was attempting to comply with UN sanctions. George W. Bush went down into the power games with his preemptive strike. Ripples of effects went out from the Grand Lie that George W. Bush told to justify the preemptive strike.

Now, globally, we are at the point of the Fourth Battle, and the acts of violence have become deplorable, and people are fighting for their lives all over the world. The crisis will get worse and worse.  The United States and Russia are fighting in Syria, and many wonder if it is the start of a proxy war.

This plan for the international government is the solution. It is An Exit Strategy for Iraq, but it is also for the entire planet. The two obvious untenable options now are to continue to be squeezed or to fight until everyone is dead.

Many people saw that George W. Bush had no clear exit strategy for getting out of Iraq. His choice was the surge, but that was to go down deeper into the power games. The knee-jerk reaction that ends a war makes a genocide worse. It appeared to work for a while, but while the U.S. military was congratulating themselves for a successful conclusion to the conflict, ISIS was establishing sleeper cells in all the nations, and all the states of the United States. Surges and drone strikes won't work any more.

What stops a genocide is that someone must say stop. There must be a way for the conflict to end, and the solution that benefits everyone is the international government.

To overcome the lack of trust, the international government will make win-win agreements, which build trust and set the stage for future agreements.
