On April 6, 2009, President Obama began his 3.5 years as the “little horn” by announcing in Turkey that “The United States is not, and never will be, at war with Islam.” In the first three months of 2011, President Obama systematically removed three of the ten horns of the Sunni beast: Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya. President Obama has not attempted to remove the two horns of the Shia beast: Muqtada al-Sadr, the leader of the Mahdi army in Iraq; and Ahmadenijad, the dictator of Iran (Persia). The Sunni and Shia hate the idolatrous Wahhabi of Saudi Arabia (whore of Babylon).
In October 2011, the US uncovered an Iranain plot to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador in DC. The Saudis are afraid the Iranians will attack them on their own soil. Al-Qaeda's attempts to blow-up the Kaaba in Mecca failed, but the Sunni beast will destroy the Jeddah-Mecca area (possibly with a little help from Shia Iran). The port of Jeddah sends out oil tankers throughout the world. The Saudis have had the US and other countries wrapped around their little oily fingers for generations.
“And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength to the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. And he said to me, The waters which you saw, where the whore sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God has put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which you saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.” (Rev. 17:12-18)
This destruction will be quick and devastating, and the smoke will be visible for miles.
“Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judges her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall mourn her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is your judgment come.” (Rev. 18:8-10)
That sounds like a conventional bomb. This is “mystery Babylon” not the city in Iraq. Babylon was the religious center of its time, today all Muslims pray facing Mecca.
The book of Esther is read during Israel's holiday of Purim. Purim is March 8, 2012 this year. In Persia, Haman cast lots (purim) for the best day to annihilate the Jews, and arrived with the 13th of Adar (Esther 3:13), which is the twelfth month of the Hebrew calendar. Because Esther fasted and prayed and boldly pleaded to the king for her people, the Jews were granted authrority to kill their persecutors on that day instead. Though Leon Panetta suggested Israel may attack Iran in April, May or June, I think March 8th would be poetic justice for the modern-day Haman.
Today on The 700 Club, Erick Stakelbeck stated that war against Israel would occur this year. He also suggested Isaiah 17:1 might be fulfilled soon.
“The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.” (Isaiah 17:1)

This April 6, 2012 will be the evening prior to Passover commemorating Yahweh's deliverance of the Jews from Egypt. Egyptians might seek some poetic justice of their own in attacking Israel that day or during the following week of Unleavened Bread.
On the day of Messiah's return, September 16, 2012, some country is going to use chemical and/or nuclear bombs according to Zechariah, or the LORD will simulate something like it.
“And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand on their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbor. And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance. And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.” (Zechariah 14:12-15)
Stay close to the LORD Jesus in prayer, and obey what His Holy Spirit tells you to do, because the coming days will be very perilous. 2011 saw the most earthquakes of any single year, and had ten different billion dollar disasters in the US alone. Jesus told us of the increase of quakes and signs in the sky (Matthew 24). I pray you are prepared.
