Diamond Alliance

Postby Hanani45 on Sat May 19, 2007 6:27 am

Hi Herb,

There's been talk of what I have dubbed the "Diamond Alliance", that is a military/security arrangement between US-India-Japan & Australia.

As you may know, America is already tightly bound to Japan and Australia through existing treaties, while Australia and Japan are also bilaterally joined. Now with talk of multilateral arrangements with India, this Diamond Alliance would encompass SE Asia and effectively block in China, North Korea & Indonesia from exerting threatening behaviors.

I am completely focused on the Middle East and Europe in terms of prophetic fulfillment, but I wondered if this issue demonstrates that the US has began to concede some ground to the EU across the Atlantic and begin covering it's bases both figuratively and literally in the Pacific.

I'd just like any insights you have on the possible implications on the world stage should this curious alliance transpire. Some links related to the issue are provided below, particularly the first two:

I also don't spend as much time watching areas outside Bible prophecy. But, I do find the links you provided very interesting. It's clear China is being seen as a growing threat and the surrounding nations are very concerned. We know that China will most likely have a part in Armageddon -- and probably India too. What I suspect may be happening is a lot of nervous nations are now making meaningless peace agreements. They all see what's coming, but don't know what to do about it. That's my guess.
