Roy’s Blog: “Provocative Conditions”

Ezekiel 39:8 (NLT) “That day of judgement will come…Everything will happen just as I have declared it.”

The USS Boxer, last Thursday, destroyed an Iranian drone in the Strait of Hormuz after it threatened the ship. The Navy’s USS Boxer, an amphibious assault ship, took defensive action after the Iranian aircraft closed to within 1,000 yards and ignored repeated warnings to stand down.

Since Thursday, Iran has seized several oil tankers. These actions are heightening concerns about the flow of traffic in the Strait of Hormuz. It is one of the world’s most critical petroleum shipping routes. One-fifth of global crude oil exports passes through this strait.

It also appears that Turkey is amassing arms for an incursion against American-allied Kurdish forces in Syria. The tensions are high in the Middle East. It could only take one incident to cause all-out war in the area. One provocation too many and it could boil over.
