The Servant

Signs in the Heavens Part 6 The 7 Waves of YHWH’s wrath On the 28th of May 2002,, I had a very significant dream. In my dream I clearly clearly saw the words written: "Russia - NATO" – after this dream the Lord showed me in a dream like a vision , how Kofi Anan or Collin Powell was walking on a stage being very angry at the nations, wanting more authority in order to take control, on the world stage.

Secretary of State As Secretary of State in the Bush administration, Powell was perceived as moderate.. Powell was unanimously voted in by the United States Senate. Senate Over the course of his tenure he travelled less than any other U.S. Secretary of State in 30 years. [28] On September 11, 2001, Powell was in Lima, Lima Peru, meeting with President Alejandro Toledo and US Ambassador John Hamilton, and attending the special session of the OAS General ral Assembly that subsequently adopted the Inter-American American Democratic Charter. Charter After the terrorist attacks,, Powell's job became of critical importance in managing America's relationships with foreign countries in order to secure a stable coalition in the War on Terrorism. Terrorism Powell came under fire for his role in building the case for the 2003 Invasion of Iraq.. In a press statement on February 24, 2001 he had said that sanctions against Iraq had prevented the development of any weapons of mass destruction by Saddam Hussein.. As was the case in the days leading up to the Persian Gulf War,, Powell was initially opposed to a forcible overthrow of Saddam, preferring to continue a policy of containment. However, Powell eventually agreed to go along with the Bush administration's determination to remove Saddam. He had often clashed with others in the administration, who were reportedly planning an Iraq invasion even before the September 11 attacks, an insight supported by testimony by former terrorism czar Richard Clarke in front of the 9/11 Commission.. The main concession Powell wanted before he would offer his full support for the Iraq War was the involvement of the international community in the invasion, as opposed to a unilateral approach. He was also successful in persuading Bush to take the case of Iraq to the United Nations, and in moderating other initiatives. Powell was placed at the forefront of this diplomatic campaign.

Powell's chief role was to garner international support for a multi-national coalition to mount the invasion. To this end, Powell addressed a plenary session of the United Nations Security Council on February 5, 2003 to argue in favour of military action. Citing numerous anonymous Iraqi defectors, Powell asserted that "there can be no doubt that Saddam Hussein has biological weapons and the capability to rapidly produce more, many more."[30] Powell also stated that there was "no doubt in my mind" that Saddam was working to obtain key components to produce nuclear weapons.[30] Most observers praised Powell's oratorical skills. However, Britain's Channel 4 News reported soon afterwards that a UK intelligence dossier that Powell had referred to as a "fine paper" during his presentation had been based on old material and plagiarized an essay by American graduate student Ibrahim al-Marashi.[31][32] A 2004 report by the Iraq Survey Group concluded that the evidence that Powell offered to support the allegation that the Iraqi government possessed weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) was inaccurate. A Senate report on intelligence failures would later detail the intense debate that went on behind the scenes on what to include in Powell's speech. State Department analysts had found dozens of factual problems in drafts of the speech. Some of the claims were taken out, but others were left in, such as claims based on the yellowcake forgery.[33] The administration came under fire for having acted on faulty intelligence. Powell later recounted how Vice President Dick Cheney had joked with him before he gave the speech, telling him, "You've got high poll ratings; you can afford to lose a few points." Powell's long-time aide-decamp and Chief of Staff from 1989–2003, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, later characterized Cheney's view of Powell's mission as to "go up there and sell it, and we'll have moved forward a peg or two. Fall on your damn sword and kill yourself, and I'll be happy, too."[34] In September 2005, Powell was asked about the speech during an interview with Barbara Walters and responded that it was a "blot" on his record. He went on to say, "It will always be a part of my record. It was painful. It's painful now."[35] Wilkerson said that he participated in a hoax on the American people in preparing Powell's erroneous testimony before the United Nations Security Council.[36] Because Powell was seen as more moderate than most figures in the administration, he was spared many of the attacks that have been leveled at more controversial advocates of the invasion, such as Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz. At times, infighting among the Powell-led State Department, the Rumsfeld-led Defense Department, and Cheney's office had the effect of polarizing the administration on crucial issues, such as what actions to take regarding Iran and North Korea. After Saddam Hussein had been deposed, Powell's new role was to once again establish a working international coalition, this time to assist in the rebuilding of post-war Iraq. On September 13, 2004, Powell testified before the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee,[37] acknowledging that the sources who provided much of the information in his February 2003 UN presentation were "wrong" and that it was "unlikely" that any stockpiles of WMDs would be found. Claiming that he was unaware that some intelligence officials questioned the information prior to his presentation, Powell pushed for reform in the intelligence community, including the creation of a national intelligence director who would assure that "what one person knew, everyone else knew." Powell announced his resignation as Secretary of State on November 15, 2004. According to The Washington Post, he had been asked to resign by the president's chief of staff, Andrew Card.[34] Powell announced that he would stay on until the end of Bush's first term or until his replacement's confirmation by Congress. The following day, Bush nominated National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice as Powell's successor. News of Powell's leaving the Administration spurred mixed reactions from politicians around the world — some upset at the loss of a statesman seen as a moderating factor within the Bush administration, but others hoping for Powell's successor to wield more influence within the cabinet. In mid-November, Powell stated that he had seen new evidence suggesting that Iran was adapting missiles for a nuclear delivery system.[38] The accusation came at the same time as the settlement of an agreement between Iran, the IAEA, and the European Union. On December 31, 2004, Powell rang in the New Year by throwing the ball in Times Square with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, ushering in the year 2005. He appeared on the networks that were broadcasting New Year's Eve specials and talked about this honour, as well as being a native of New York City.[39] The Witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & www.witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za

Signs in the heavens After the service, during that same day, on the 28th of May 2002, more signs appeared to us in the heavens, explaining those things, which were interwoven and interlinked with the dream, which YHWH had given me the night before: A sign of a baby carrycot appeared in the south west. In my spirit I knew that the plans of the Illuminati was now in baby shoes and was still in a growing stage.

Push chairs and prams William Kent developed an early pram in 1733.[1] He was a garden architect in England who had become well known for his work. In 1733, the Duke of Devonshire asked Kent to build a means of transportation that would carry his children. Kent obliged by constructing a shell shaped basket on wheels that the children could sit in. This was richly decorated and meant to be pulled by a goat or small pony. Benjamin Potter Crandall sold baby carriages in America in the 1830s which have been described as the "first baby carriages manufactured in America"[2] His son, Jesse Armour Crandall was issued a number of patents for improvements and additions to the standard models. These included adding a brake to carriages, a model which folded, designs for parasols and an umbrella hanger. By 1840, the baby carriage became extremely popular. Queen Victoria bought three carriages from Hitchings Baby Store.[3] The carriages of those days were built of wood or wicker and held together by expensive brass joints. These sometimes became heavily ornamented works of art. Models were also named after royalty, Princess and Duchess being popular names, as well as Balmoral and Windsor. In June 1889, William Richardson patented his idea of the first reversible stroller. The bassinet was designed so it could face out or in towards the parent. He also made structural changes to the carriage. Until then the axis did not allow each wheel to move separately, Richardson’s design allowed this, which increased manoeuvrability of the carriages. As the 1920s began, modern baby carriages were now available to all families. They were also becoming safer, as new features like larger wheels, brakes, deeper prams, and lower, sturdier frames began to appear. In 1965, Owen Maclaren, an aeronautical engineer, worked on complaints his daughter made about travelling from England to America with her heavy pram. Using his knowledge of aeroplanes, Maclaren designed a stroller with an aluminium frame and created the first true umbrella stroller. He then went on to found Maclaren which manufactured and sold his new design. The design took off and soon “strollers” were easier to transport and used everywhere. Since the 1980s, the stroller industry has developed with new features, safer construction and more accessories. The carrycot was designed in Brittan in the 1730’s and later patented in the United States. Was YHWH saying that just as the first carrycot was manufactured in USA, so now another plan was designed in Brittan, the place and time the Illuminati originated from in 1776 and will be manufactured and perfected, coming out of the United States of America? After this another sign appeared in the sky. A sign of a large arrow appeared in the north east pointing towards the south west. The Spirit of YHWH gave us a strong sense that He was indicating where things these things were going to start.

The Overthrow of Egypt After this sign another sign also appeared in the heaven. We both saw sign of a pyramid, looking like it was tilted towards its one side, as if overthrown, which appeared in the northern sky. The nation of Egypt would be overthrown. After this, a sign of a lizard appeared in the sky. We immediately realized the involvement of the Illuminati and therefore also of the coming Anti-Christ. After this we saw another sign appeared in the sky. A sign of a Sampan or a Chinese boat appeared in the sky. We were reminded of the attack that would take place on South America as the Lord God had shown us in the beginning. See Signs in the Heavens – Part 1 - The Twin Towers & The Harvester. All these signs started appearing to us as we were on our way towards the place of prayer. As we walked around the corner of the street and up the street the Lord made me attend to the colour ‘green’ symbolizing piece. I realized that the development of the peace agreements for world peace was in its baby shoes. As we were walking, wondering about this vision, I thought about the African-Union summit, which was just around the corner and would be held in South Africa shortly. Suddenly, the Holy Spirit confirmed that even this meeting would also have something to do with it, contributing to the world peace agreement and a one world government. As we got to the corner of the street, many signs started appearing on the horizon, coming towards us. We saw a large sign of a line, which appeared in the south western sky, looking like different waves that were rolling towards us as the prophetic events were revealed in consecutive order.

7 Prophetic Waves of God’s Wrath As I looked, I saw 7 large waves, the one following the other in consecutive order. The first wave looked like a goat with one horn, the second looked like a crocodile coming out of an egg. The third wave looked like a goat having two horns, moving from right to the left as we were looking. While we were looking, a large division, like a cliff, developed between the crocodile and the goat with two horns. It seems as if the young crocodile was listening with ears perked up. After this a sign of an alarm clock, which became a hand appeared in the sky. We saw the goat with one horn climbed on top of the crocodile’s back, having intercourse with it. After this a sign of a pagoda that fell over appeared in the heavens.

Pagoda A pagoda is the general term in the English language for a tiered tower with multiple eaves common in China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Nepal and other parts of Asia. Some pagodas are used as Taoist houses of worship. Most pagodas were built to have a religious function, most commonly Buddhist, and were often located in or near temples. This term may refer to other religious structures in some countries. In Vietnam, pagoda is a more generic term referring to a place of worship, although pagoda is not an accurate word to describe a Buddhist temple. The modern pagoda is an evolution of the Ancient Indian stupa, a tomb-like structure where sacred relics could be kept safe and venerated.[1] The architectural structure of the stupa has spread across Asia, taking on many diverse forms as details specific to different regions are incorporated into the overall design.

As we were considering the pagoda falling in the east, we saw a sea-horse, which disappeared in the distance. See Fasting Journal - Part 7 - Signs in the Heavens - The Goat with one horn. As soon as this sign appeared in the heavens a large sign of a tank, which fired towards North America, firing up into the air, appeared in the sky. Were saw how the crocodile was tamed, having a noose around its neck by a giraffe –the pride of the United States of America.

The sign of the Rabbit – One ear long the other short After this a sign of a rabbit, resembling the nations who worship rabbits, appeared in the heavens. This sign also symbolize two nations, who are neighbouring nations, looking just like the large ears of the hare, one long and the other bent or short, which appeared in the south-west, resembling the nations of South America, viz. Venezuela and Brazil. These nations bowed in front of the giraffe or North America. The Rabbit is considered by YHWH as an unclean animal. The Arab League of nations refuse to believe in Yahshua, accepting Him as their Messiah and King.

The Court Jester After this a sign of a court jester’s with 7 points appeared in the heavens. In the centre above the third point another three points appeared. After this sign the Lord gave my brother a scripture explaining the way He was speaking to us, saying: 34 These things all taken together Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed, without a parable He said nothing to them. 35 This was in fulfilment of what was spoken by the prophet: I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things that have been hidden since the foundation of the world.[Ps. 78:2.] (Matt.13:34 Ampl) Truly these signs are great parables and symbols of things that will be clearly understood as soon as they come to pass, so that all men may know that YHWH is the Creator of the Universe and has revealed these things to us, so that we may be His witnesses that He is YHWH. That He alone knows all things and even understands the beginning and the end of all things, thousands of years in advance. A jester, joker, jokester, fool, wit-cracker, prankster or buffoon was a person employed to tell jokes and provide general entertainment, typically by a European monarch. Jesters are stereotypically thought to have worn brightly coloured clothes and eccentric hats in a motley pattern. Their hats were especially distinctive; made of cloth, they were floppy with three points, each of which had a jingle bell at the end. The three points of the hat represent the donkey's ears and tail worn by jesters in earlier times. Other things distinctive about the jester were his laughter and his mock sceptre, known as a bauble or marotte.

All the nations of the world are playing into the hand of Satan, each one of them being represented by each of the tassels of the court jester’s hat. Three of these points are going to be fooled by the treacherous plans of the Illuminati and finally the Anti-Christ, just as was prophesied by the prophet Daniel: 8 I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots; and behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth speaking great things. 9 I kept looking until thrones were placed for the assessors with the Judge, and the Ancient of Days, God, the eternal Father took His seat, Whose garment was white as snow and the hair of His head like pure wool. His throne was like the fiery flame; its wheels were burning fire. 10 A stream of fire came forth from before Him; a thousand thousands ministered to Him and ten thousand times ten thousand rose up and stood before Him; the Judge was seated, the court was in session and the books were opened. 11 I looked then because of the sound of the great words which the horn was speaking. I watched until the beast was slain and its body destroyed and given over to be burned with fire. 12 And as for the rest of the beasts, their power of dominion was taken away; yet their lives were prolonged for the duration of their lives was fixed for a season and a time. (Dan 7:8-12 Ampl) The little horn’s position or the Anti-Christ has been fulfilled by many over the last 2500 years. But now, right before the end, three court jesters will be playing the fool and will be destroy for their ignorance and foolishness. This is also exactly what YHWH has determined would happen to them. Later Daniel inquired specifically into this vision, as was written: 19 Then I wished to know the truth about the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, exceedingly terrible and shocking, whose teeth were of iron and its nails of bronze, which devoured, broke and crushed, and trampled what was left with its feet. 20 And about the ten horns, representing kings that were on its head, and the other horn, which came up later and before which three of the horns fell, the horn which had eyes and a mouth that spoke great things and which looked greater than the others. 21 As I looked, this horn made war with the saints and prevailed over them [Rev. 13:7-9.] Then the angel Gabriel gave Daniel the The Witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & www.witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za

interpretation of this vision of the last Beast, saying: 23 Thus the angel said: “The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms and shall devour the whole earth, tread it down, and break it in pieces and crush it. 24 And as for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise; and another shall arise after them, and he shall be different from the former ones, and he shall subdue and put down three kings. 25 And he shall speak words against the Most High God and shall wear out the saints of the Most High and think to change the time of sacred feasts and holy days and the law; and the saints shall be given into his hand for a time, two times, and half a time or three and one-half years. [Rev. 13:1-6.] YHWH revealed to the prophet that an eleventh king will come and will be very different from all the other kings and kingdoms. Here in lies a hidden mystery that has been misunderstood or only partially understood, by many. This will be revealed in detail in the sequence of the events, which Yahshua had revealed to us through a sequence of signs in a chronological time line in the heavens. (The Little Book – Part 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 ) The apostle John also sees these same things, but from a different perspective and time period, as was revealed to him, saying: 1 As I stood on the sandy beach, I saw a beast coming up out of the sea with ten horns and seven heads. On his horns he had ten royal crowns or diadems and blasphemous titles or names on his heads. 2 And the beast that I saw resembled a leopard, but his feet were like those of a bear and his mouth was like that of a lion. And to him the dragon gave his own might and power and his own throne and great dominion. 3 And one of his heads seemed to have a deadly wound. But his death stroke was healed; and the whole earth went after the beast in amazement and admiration. 4 They fell down and paid homage to the dragon, because he had bestowed on the beast all his dominion and authority; they also praised and worshiped the beast, exclaiming: “Who is a match for the beast, and, Who can make war against him?” 5 And the beast was given the power of speech, uttering boastful and blasphemous words, and he was given freedom to exert his authority and to exercise his will during forty-two months (three and a half years). 6 And he opened his mouth to speak slanders against God, blaspheming His name and His abode, even vilifying those who live in heaven. 7 He was further permitted to wage war on God's holy people, the saints and to overcome them. And power was given him to extend his authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation, 8 And all the inhabitants of the earth will fall down in adoration and pay him homage, everyone whose name has not been recorded in the Book of Life of the Lamb that was slain in sacrifice from the foundation of the world. (Rev 13:1-8 Ampl) The Lord Jesus revealed to John that this beast, having 7 heads and 10 horns was given a deadly wound. This wound was given to this beast when three horns were removed with great power and force. The Little horn would have power over all the earth, for one hour or 3.5 years, when he will persecute and kill those who love God and follow hard after Yahshua, forsaking all, not loving their lives even to death. The question remains: “Who are these three that must be removed in order for this king to get the seven other court jesters, to dance to his tune and command, without raising an eyebrow?”

He shall subdue Three... Over a period of many years, Yahshua has sent his angels to speak to us through signs in the heavens. During a 40 day fast in 2002 the Spirit of Yahshua – Jesus Christ, through the Anointing taught me many things and revealed three prophetic persons who must be removed. Each of these persons also represents there consecutive countries. They were given symbolic names, but were not directly revealed, who they are. The Arrogant One This person was revealed as one who was very arrogant and full of himself. His pride has blinded him to believe that he and his nation’s power would never come to a fall. The prophet Daniel revealed him as a prince, saying: 8 And the he-goat, Alexander the Great, magnified himself exceedingly, and when he was young and strong, the great horn, he was suddenly broken; and instead of him there came up four notable horns to whom the kingdom was divided, one toward each of the four winds of the heavens. (Dan 8:8 Ampl) This powerful horn would suddenly be broken off. Later in another vision it was revealed to the prophet who this horn was, as was written: 4 And as soon as he has fully arisen, his, Alexander the Great's kingdom shall be broken by his death and divided toward the four winds, the east, west, north, and south of the heavens, but not to his posterity, nor according to the Grecian dominion which he ruled, for his kingdom shall be torn out and uprooted and go to others, to his four generals to the exclusion of these. (Dan 11:4 Ampl)

This prince referred by the angel Gabriel was later identified in more detail to Daniel, revealing that he will suddenly be removed, saying: 20 Then shall stand up in his place or office one who shall send an exactor of tribute to pass through the glory of the kingdom, but within a few days he shall be destroyed, yet neither in anger nor in battle. (Dan 11:20 Ampl) This king or President’s office will be cut short. He will suddenly be removed from his position of office. Just as the Spirit of Yahshua had revealed to me, saying: “They will pull his plug” and “Heads will roll” See The Last Week of Daniel - Part 5a The Long Horn - The Arrogant One Who is this prince? After having received understanding about the covenant that would be made a prince, I understood who this prince would be. On the 6th of April 2011, President Barack Obama, made a strong agreement to stop the manufacture of nuclear weapons and will reduce all weapons of mass destruction within the next 4 years. During that same time the Pope made a prophetic statement, without knowing that he is prophecying, saying that President Obama is the Alexander the Great of our time.

The Eye of the Dragon The next person whom YHWH revealed that will be removed was referred to by YHWH as the ‘Eye of the Dragon’. The Dragon is the national symbol of the East Asian nations, including China, Japan and North and South Korea. Who then would be the eye of the Dragon? This would be key person who plays a major role in the east and who are a part of the Illuminati. On the 21st of November 2009, after 7 years of not having touched those prophesies, by the power and the guidance of the Holy Spirit the Lord Jesus helped me to put together those things, which He had shown me and put it into an understandable and use able format for the general reader. The Lord revealed to me that the United Nations Security council, consisted out of five permanent members and non permanent members. These five nations are also the nuclear powers of the world. As leader of this council of members, the United Nations Secretary-General appointed Ban Ki-moon.

Ban Ki-moon Ban Ki-moon; born 13 June 1944 is the eighth and current Secretary-General of the United Nations, after succeeding Kofi Annan in 2007. Before becoming Secretary-General, Ban was a career diplomat in South Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and in the United Nations. He entered diplomatic service the year he graduated from university, accepting his first post in New Delhi, India. In the foreign ministry he established a reputation for modesty and competence. Ban was the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Korea from January 2004 to November 2006. In February 2006, he began to campaign for the office of Secretary-General. Ban was initially considered to be a long shot for the office. As foreign minister of Korea, however, he was able to travel to all of the countries that were members of the United Nations Security Council, a maneuver that turned him into the front runner. On 13 October 2006, he was elected to be the eighth Secretary-General by the United Nations General Assembly. On 1 January 2007, he successfully succeeded Annan, and led several major reforms regarding peacekeeping and UN employment practices. Diplomatically, Ban has taken particularly strong views on Darfur, where he helped persuade Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir to allow peacekeeping troops to enter Sudan; and on global warming, pressing the issue repeatedly with former U.S. President George W. Bush. Ban has received strong criticism from OIOS, the UN internal audit unit, stating that the secretariat, under Ban's leadership, is "drifting into irrelevance".[4]

Personality In the Korean Foreign Ministry his nickname was Ban-jusa, meaning "the Bureaucrat" or "the administrative clerk." The name was used as both positive and negative: complimenting Ban's attention to detail and administrative skill while deriding what was seen as a lack of charisma and subservience to his superiors.[12] The Korean press corps calls him "the slippery eel" for his ability to dodge questions.[6] His demeanour has also been described as a "Confucian approach."[13]

Diplomatic career After graduating from university, Ban received the top score on Korea's foreign service exam. He joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in May 1970, and worked his way up the career ladder during the years of the Yusin Constitution.[7] His first overseas posting was to New Delhi, India where he served as vice consul and impressed many of his superiors in the foreign ministry with his competence. Ban reportedly accepted a posting to India rather than the more prestigious United States, because in India he would be able to save more money, and send more money home to his family.[14][15] In 1974 he received his first posting to the United Nations, as First Secretary of the South Permanent Observer Mission (South Korea became a full UN member-state on 17 September 1991).[16] After Park Chung-hee's 1979 assassination, Ban assumed the post of Director of the United Nations Division. In 1980 Ban became director of the United Nation's International Organizations and Treaties Bureau, headquartered in Seoul.[15] He has been posted twice to the Republic of Korea embassy in Washington, D.C. Between these two assignments he served as Director-General for American Affairs in 1990–1992. In 1992, he became Vice Chairman of the South-North Joint Nuclear Control Commission, following the adoption by South and North Korea of the Joint Declaration of the Denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.[14] From 1993–1994 Ban was Korea's deputy ambassador to the United States. He was promoted to the position of Deputy Minister for Policy Planning and International Organizations in 1995 and then appointed National Security Advisor to the President in 1996.[15] Ban's lengthy career overseas has been credited with helping him avoid South Korea's unforgiving political environment.[13] Ban was appointed Ambassador to Austria in 1998, and a year later he was also elected as Chairman of the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO PrepCom). During the negotiations, in what Ban considers the biggest blunder of his career, he included in a public letter a positive statement about the AntiBallistic Missile Treaty with Russia in 2001, not long after the United States had decided to abandon the treaty. To avoid anger from the United States, Ban was fired by President Kim Dae-jung, who also issued a public apology for Ban's statement.[1] Ban was unemployed for the only time in his career and was expecting to receive an assignment to work in a remote and unimportant embassy.[1] In 2001, during the 56th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, the Republic of Korea held the rotating presidency, and to Ban's surprise, he was selected to be the chief of staff to general assembly president Han Seung-soo.[17] In 2003, the new Korean President Roh Moo-hyun selected Ban as one of his foreign policy advisors.[15]

Foreign Minister of Korea In 2004, Ban replaced Yoon Young Kwan as foreign minister of Korea under president Roh Moo-hyun.[6] At the beginning of his term, Ban was faced with two major crises: in June 2004 Kim Sun-il, a Korean translator, was kidnapped and killed in Iraq by Islamic extremists; and in December 2004 dozens of Koreans died in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Ban survived scrutiny from lawmakers and saw an upturn in his popularity when talks began with North Korea.[15] Ban became actively involved in issues relating to inter-Korean relationships.[14] In September 2005, as Foreign Minister, he played a leading role in the diplomatic efforts to adopt the Joint Statement on resolving the North Korean nuclear issue at the Fourth Round of the Six-party talks held in Beijing.[18][19] As foreign minister, Ban oversaw the trade and aid policies of South Korea. This work put Ban in the position of signing trade deals and delivering foreign assistance to diplomats who would later be influential in his candidacy for Secretary-General. For example, Ban became the first senior South Korean minister to travel to the Congo since its independence in 1960.[20] In February 2006, Ban declared his candidacy to replace Kofi Annan as UN Secretary-General at the end of 2006, becoming the first South Korean to run for the office.[22] Though Ban was the first to announce a candidacy, he was not originally considered a serious contender.[7] Over the next eight months, Ban made ministerial visits to each of the 15 countries with a seat on the Security Council.[6] Of the seven candidates, he topped each of the four straw polls conducted by the United Nations Security Council: on 24 July,[23] 14 September,[24] 28 September,[25] and 2 October.[26] The Witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & www.witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za

During the period in which these polls took place, Ban made major speeches to the Asia Society and the Council on Foreign Relations in New York.[27][28] To be confirmed, Ban needed not only to win the support of the diplomatic community, but also to be able to avoid a veto from any of the five permanent members of the council: People's Republic of China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Ban was popular in Washington for having pushed to send South Korean troops to Iraq. But Ban also opposed several U.S. positions: he expressed his support for the International Criminal Court and favoured an entirely non-confrontational approach to dealing with North Korea.[6] Ban said during his campaign that he would like to visit North Korea in person to meet with Kim Jong-il directly.[19] Ban was viewed as a stark contrast from Kofi Annan, who was considered charismatic, but perceived as a weak manager because of problems surrounding the UN's oil-for-food program in Iraq.[12] Ban also struggled to win the approval of France. His official biography states that he speaks both English and French, the two working languages of the UN Secretariat. He has repeatedly struggled to answer questions in French from journalists.[10] Ban has repeatedly acknowledged his limitations at French, but assured French diplomats that he was devoted to continuing his study. At a press conference on 11 January 2007, Ban remarked, “My French perhaps could be improved, and I am continuing to work. I have taken French lessons over the last few months. I think that, even if my French isn't perfect, I will continue to study it.”[29] As the Secretary-General election drew closer, there was rising criticism of the South Korean campaign on Ban's behalf. Specifically, his alleged practice of systematically visiting all member states of the Security Council in his role as the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade to secure votes in his support by signing trade deals with European countries and pledging aid to developing countries were the focus of many news articles.[30] According to The Washington Post, "rivals have privately grumbled that Republic of Korea, which has the world's 11th-largest economy, has wielded its economic might to generate support for his candidacy." Ban reportedly said that these insinuations were "groundless." In an interview on 17 September 2006 he stated: "As front-runner, I know that I can become a target of this very scrutinizing process," and "I am a man of integrity."[31] In the final informal poll on 2 October, Ban received fourteen favorable votes and one abstention ("no opinion") from the fifteen members of the Security Council. The one abstention came from the Japanese delegation, who vehemently opposed the idea of a Korean taking the role of Secretary-General. Due to the overwhelming support of Ban by the rest of the Security Council, Japan later voted in favor of Ban to avoid controversy. More importantly, Ban was the only one to escape a veto; each of the other candidates received at least one "no" vote from among the five permanent members.[32] After the vote, Shashi Tharoor, who finished second, withdrew his candidacy[33] and China's Permanent Representative to the UN told reporters that "it is quite clear from today's straw poll that Minister Ban Ki-moon is the candidate that the Security Council will recommend to the General Assembly."[34] When Ban became Secretary-General, The Economist listed the major challenges facing him in 2007: "rising nuclear demons in Iran and North Korea, a haemorrhaging wound in Darfur, unending violence in the Middle East, looming environmental disaster, escalating international terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, the spread of HIV/AIDS. And then the more parochial concerns, such as the largely unfinished business of the most sweeping attempt at reform in the UN's history."[36] Before starting, Kofi Annan shared the story that when the first Secretary-General Trygve Lie left office, he told his successor, Dag Hammarskjöld, "You are about to take over the most impossible job on earth."[17] On 23 January 2007 Ban took office as the eighth Secretary-General of the United Nations. Ban's term as Secretary-General opened with a flap. At his first encounter with the press as Secretary-General on 2 January 2007, he refused to condemn the death penalty imposed on Saddam Hussein by the Iraqi High Tribunal, remarking that “The issue of capital punishment is for each and every member State to decide.”[37] Ban's statements contradicted long-standing United Nations opposition to the death penalty as a human-rights concern.[38] He quickly clarified his stance in the case of Barzan al-Tikriti and Awad al-Bandar, two top officials who were convicted of the deaths of 148 Shia Muslims in the Iraqi village of Dujail in the 1980s. In a statement through his spokesperson on 6 January, he “strongly urged the Government of Iraq to grant a stay of execution to those whose death sentences may be carried out in the near future.”[39][40] On the broader issue, he told a Washington, D.C., audience on 16 January 2007 that he recognized and encouraged the “growing trend in international society, international law and domestic policies and practices to phase out eventually the death penalty.”[41] On the tenth anniversary of Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot's death, 15 April 2008, Ban Ki-moon appealed for the senior leaders of the regime to be brought to justice. The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia-tribunal, which was established by both the United Nations and Cambodia and which became operational in 2006, is expected to continue until at least 2010.[42]

Cabinet In early January, Ban appointed the key members of his cabinet. As his Deputy Secretary-General, he selected Tanzanian foreign minister and professor Asha-Rose Migiro – a move that pleased African diplomats who had concerns of losing power without Annan in office.[43]

The top position devoted exclusively to management, Under-Secretary-General for Management, was filled by Alicia Bárcena Ibarra of Mexico. Bárcena was considered a UN insider, having previously served as Annan's chief of staff. Her appointment was seen by critics as an indication that Ban would not make dramatic changes to UN bureaucracy.[44] Ban appointed Sir John Holmes, the British Ambassador to France, as Under-Secretary-General for humanitarian affairs and coordinator of emergency relief.[44] Ban initially said that he would delay making other appointments until his first round of reforms were approved, but he later abandoned this idea after receiving criticism.[39][45] In February he continued with appointments, selecting B. Lynn Pascoe, the U.S. ambassador to Indonesia, to become Under-Secretary-General for political affairs. Jean-Marie Guéhenno, a French diplomat, who had served as UnderSecretary-General for peacekeeping operations under Annan, remained in office. Ban selected Vijay K. Nambiar as his chief of staff.[46] The appointment of many women to top jobs was seen as fulfilling a campaign promise Ban had made to increase the role of women in the United Nations. During Ban's first year as Secretary-General, more top jobs were being handled by women than ever before. Though not appointed by Ban, the president of the General Assembly, Haya Rashed Al-Khalifa, is only the third woman to hold this position in UN history.[47]

Reform agenda During his first month in office, Ban proposed two major restructurings: to split the UN peacekeeping operation into two departments and to combine the political affairs and disarmament department. His proposals were met with stiff resistance from members of the UN General Assembly who bristled under Ban's request for rapid approval. The proposed merger of the disarmament and political affairs offices was criticized by many in the developing world, partially because of rumours that Ban hoped to place American B. Lynn Pascoe in charge of the new office. Alejandro D. Wolff, then acting American ambassador, said the United States backed his proposals.[39][45] After the early bout of reproach, Ban began extensive consultation with UN ambassadors, agreeing to have his peacekeeping proposal extensively vetted. After the consultations, Ban dropped his proposal to combine political affairs and disarmament.[48] Ban nevertheless pressed ahead with reforms on job requirements at the UN requiring that all positions be considered five-year appointments, all receive strict annual performance reviews, and all financial disclosures be made public. Though unpopular in the New York office, the move was popular in other UN offices around the world and lauded by UN observers.[49] Ban's proposal to split the peacekeeping operation into one group handling operations and another handling arms was finally adopted in mid-March 2007.[50] A new agenda for negotiations on UN reform was approved by the General Assembly in April 2007, covering a number of loosely related initiatives to improve the coherence of the UN system. Most proposals required the approval of member states; others provided further impetus to already initiated reform measures. Ban Ki-moon supported the ongoing negotiations on the consolidation of UN activities at the country level under the ‘Delivering as One’ initiative through the implementation of the ‘One UN’ pilot projects and the harmonization of business practices in the UN system. He also gave strong support to the proposal on establishing a unified gender organisation. Whereas little was achieved on most of the controversial issues, the General Assembly approved in September 2010 the establishment of ‘UN Women’ as the new UN organization for the empowerment of women and gender equality. UN Women was established by unifying the mandates and resources for greater impact of four small entities and its first head is Ms Michelle Bachelet, former President of Chile.

Key issues The Secretary-General of the United Nations has the ability to influence debate on nearly any global issue. Although unsuccessful in some areas, Ban's predecessor Annan had been successful in increasing the UN peacekeeping presence and in popularizing the Millennium Development Goals. UN observers were eager to see on which issues Ban intends to focus, in addition to reform of the United Nations bureaucracy.[36] On several prominent issues, such as proliferation in Iran and North Korea, Ban has deferred to the Security Council.[50] Ban has also declined to become involved on the issue of Taiwan's status. In 2007, the Republic of Nauru raised the issue of allowing the Republic of China (Taiwan) to sign the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. Ban referenced the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 2758, and refused the motion. On 19 July 2007, Taiwanese President Chen Shui-bian wrote to request admission into the UN by the name Taiwan. Ban immediately rejected the request.[51]

Global warming Ban early on identified global warming as one of the key issues of his administration. In a White House meeting with U.S. President George W. Bush in January, Ban urged Bush to take steps to The Witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & www.witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za

curb greenhouse gas emissions. On 1 March 2007 in a speech before the UN General Assembly,

Ban further emphasized his concerns about global warming. Ban stated, "For my generation, coming of age at the height of the Cold War, fear of nuclear winter seemed the leading existential threat on the horizon. But the danger posed by war to all humanity — and to our planet — is at least matched by climate change"[52] (referring to Global Warming, see P:GW portal).

Middle East On Thursday, 22 March 2007, while Ban was taking part in the first stop of a tour of the Middle East, a mortar attack hit just 80 meters (260 ft) from where the Secretary-General was standing, interrupting a press conference in Baghdad's Green Zone, and visibly shaking Ban and others. No one was hurt in the incident.[53] The United Nations had already limited its role in Iraq after its Baghdad headquarters was bombed in August 2003, killing 22 people. Ban said, however, that he still hoped to find a way for the United Nations to "do more for Iraqi social and political development."[54] On his trip, Ban visited Egypt, Israel, the West Bank, Jordan, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia, where Ban attended a conference with leaders of the Arab League and met for several hours with Omar Hassan al-Bashir, the Sudanese president who had resisted UN peacekeepers in Darfur.[50] While Ban met with Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, he declined to meet with Ismail Haniya of Hamas.[55] Ban Ki-moon criticized Israel on 10 March 2008 for planning to build housing units in a West Bank settlement, saying the decision conflicts with "Israel's obligation under the road map" for Middle East peace.[56] During a meeting of the UN Security Council on Wednesday, 7 January 2009, Ban called for an immediate end to fighting in the Gaza Strip. He criticized both sides, Israel for bombarding Gaza and Hamas for firing rockets into Israel.[57] Although the 2009 Iranian presidential election was widely disputed, Ban Ki-moon sent a traditional congratulation message [58] to Iranian president upon his inauguration. He kept silent over the request of Shirin Ebadi to visit[59] Iran after the crackdown on peaceful postelection protests by the Iranian police – an event that was perceived by some as a crime against humanity .[60] More than 4000 people were arrested and nearly 70 were killed, some while being held in prison.[61] In another incident, several prominent intellectuals including Akbar Ganji, Hamid Dabashi, Noam Chomsky went on a three-day hunger strike [62] in front of the UN. The incident was followed by an official request[63] by more that 200 intellectuals, human rights activists and reformist politicians in Iran for the UN reaction. Ban Kimoon however did not take any action to stop the violence in Iran.

Darfur Ban took the first foreign trip of his term to attend the African Union summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in January 2007 as part of an effort to reach out to the Group of 77.[36] He repeatedly identified Darfur as the top humanitarian priority of his administration.[50] Ban played a large role, with several face-to-face meetings with Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, in convincing Sudan to allow UN peacekeepers to enter the Darfur region. On 31 July 2007 the United Nations Security Council approved sending 26,000 UN peacekeepers into the region to join 7,000 troops from the African Union. The resolution was heralded as a major breakthrough in confronting the Darfur conflict (although the United States labeled the conflict a "genocide," the United Nations has declined to do so). The first phase of the peacekeeping mission began in October 2007.[64]

Myanmar Ban Ki-moon flew to Myanmar on 25 May 2008 to guide a conference with international agencies aimed at boosting donations for the nation, which was struck by Cyclone Nargis on 2 May 2008. The conference was initiated after Ban had met with Than Shwe, the leading figure of Myanmar's government 23 May 2008. Ban toured the devastation—especially in the hard-hit Irrawaddy Delta—23 May 2008 and 24 May 2008. Myanmar officials agreed to allow the Yangon International Airport to be used as a logistical hub for aid distribution.[65]

Sri Lanka visit The Secretary-General inspected refugee camps in Sri Lanka on May 2009, to ensure the 300,000 refugees were being taken care of properly. The people were uprooted by the intense fighting that ended Sri Lanka’s 25-year civil war. The Secretary-General also met with the President of Sri Lanka, who declared victory a few days earlier against the Tamil Tigers.[66] The war started in 1972 with the demands of Tamil Eelam coming from the LTTE or Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. After an unsuccessful six-year truce, the fighting began again and later the government of Sri Lanka would win over the LTTE organization.[67] Ki-moon, in a statement ahead of World Press Freedom Day called on the government of Sri Lanka to ensure that those responsible for Lasantha Wickrematunge's murder are found and prosecuted.

It is very clear from the above information that Ban Ki-moon is a very influential individual in East Asia, since he is the Secretary General of the United Nations Security Council and has considerable authority and power.

Through signs in the heavens the Lord Yahshua has made it very clear that the eye of the dragon will be removed, through betrayal and possibly assassination. Whatever the means YHWH has made it clear the man behind the mask will deceitfully work behind the scenes and at first be a friend with the nations of the East Asian continent, but later he will become like a deceitful staff in whom they have trusted, but were betrayed. See Fasting Journal Part 16 - An Evil and a Treacherous plan & The Last Week of Daniel - Part 3a - Nation of Obscure language & The Last Week of Daniel - Part 4 - The Beast System On the 23rd of June 2003, the Lord showed me a vision of a high building which was standing in dark clouds. While I looked at this building I suddenly saw how something like lightning came out of dark thunder clouds, like an umbilical cord and struck the side of a very high skyscraper. It struck the side of the building, at very specific office or room in that skyscraper. Immediately, the Holy Spirit revealed to me that building was standing in one of the Asian nations, standing on the coast of the Pacific ocean. I also knew that a very evil and wicked plan was given birth to inside this building, which were given to them, coming out of the second heavens, where Satan lives. I also knew that this planned involved the secret societies and the Illuminati.

The Heart of the Illuminati This person or individual is the most influential individual and is in the highest degrees of Freemasonry and the Illuminati. This individual has been the major driving force behind the Illuminati’s plans in the west. He is a brilliant negotiator speaker and is a powerful leader. Who is the heart of the Illuminati? On the 5th of April 2002, the Holy Spirit gave me a very intense revelation, which pointed directly to a certain individual who has been instrumental in many major decisions, which had to be made in foreign relations, overthrowing governments, causing wars, and even assassinating those in high positions who have become a problem. He has done it the last 51 years of his life (1955 – 2011) and still remains the major pawn even at the age of 89 years. He has membership with all the major secret organization of the world in the west viz. Bohemian Grove, Council on Foreign Relations, Aspen Institute, and the Bilderberg Group, being part of clubs and committees of the highest degrees in government and economy. Henry Kissinger was the main advisor for many Presidents of the United States of America, in and out of the official office of National Security Advisor. Even from a young age he was recognised by his superiors as a brilliant mind and strategic negotiator. Henry Kissinger has been the master mind and advisor in the background as will be clearly seen by the following articles from a world encyclopaedia:

Henry Kissinger Henry Alfred Kissinger (born May 27, 1923[2]) is a German-born American political scientist, diplomat, and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. He served as National Security Advisor and later concurrently as Secretary of State in the administrations of Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. After his term, his opinion was still sought by many following presidents. A proponent of Realpolitik, Kissinger played a dominant role in United States foreign policy between 1969 and 1977. During this period, he pioneered the policy of détente with the Soviet Union, orchestrated the opening of relations with the People's Republic of China, and negotiated the Paris Peace Accords, ending American involvement in the Vietnam War. His role in the bombing of Cambodia during this period remains controversial, as well as other interventions abroad such as the Nixon administration's tacit support of the Pakistani Army in East Pakistan during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, with documents showing that US officials working in diplomatic institutions within Bangladesh using the terms selective genocide in reference to the Pakistani Army's atrocities, actions which prompted widespread criticism and condemnation both by Congress and the international press.[3][4][5][6][7][8]

Kissinger is still praised by colleagues today[2]. He was honored as the first recipient of the Ewald von Kleist Award of the Munich Conference on Security Policy and currently serves as the chairman of Kissinger Associates, an international consulting firm. Kissinger was the "most frequent visitor" to the George W. Bush White House as an unofficial political adviser on Israel and the Middle East— including the invasion and occupation of Iraq.

On the other hand, Kissinger also has numerous detractors, who are highly critical of his role in many foreign policy decisions during his time as US Secretary of State. In particular he is considered the architect, along with Richard Nixon, of a secret massive bombing campaign in Cambodia and Laos beginning in 1970. The destruction of Cambodia by this secret bombing campaign was a contributing factor in the Cambodian Civil War and the coming to power of the genocidal Pol Pot regime in 1975. Kissinger is still a controversial figure today.[9] He remains a regular participant in meetings of the annual invitation-only Bilderberg Group.[10] He was honored as the first recipient of the Ewald von Kleist Award of the Munich Conference on Security Policy and currently serves as the chairman of Kissinger Associates, an international consulting firm.

The office of National Security Advisor (United States) The Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, commonly referred to as the National Security Advisor (abbreviated NSA, or sometimes APNSA or ANSA to avoid confusion with the abbreviation of the National Security Agency), serves as the chief adviser to the President of the United States on national security issues. This person serves on the National Security Council within the Executive Office of the President. The National Security Advisor's office is located in the West Wing of the White House. He or she is supported by a staff that produces research, briefings, and intelligence for the NSA to review and present to the National Security Council and the President of the United States. The National Security Advisor is appointed by the President without confirmation by the United States Senate. As such, they are not connected to the bureaucracies of the Departments of State and Defense, and are therefore able to offer independent advice. The power and role of the National Security Advisor varies from administration to administration. In times of crisis, the National Security Advisor operates from the White House Situation Room, updating the President on the latest events of a crisis.

Army experience Kissinger underwent basic training at Camp Croft in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where he was naturalized upon arrival. The Army sent him to study engineering at Lafayette College, Pennsylvania, but the program was canceled, and Kissinger was reassigned to the 84th Infantry Division. There, he made the acquaintance of Fritz Kraemer, a fellow emigrant from Germany who despite the age difference, noted Kissinger's fluency in German and his intellect, arranged for him to be assigned to the military intelligence section of the division. Kissinger saw combat with the division, and volunteered for hazardous intelligence duties during the Battle of the Bulge.[17] During the American advance into Germany, Kissinger was assigned to de-Nazify the city of Krefeld, owing to a lack of German speakers on the division's intelligence staff. Kissinger relied on his knowledge of German society to remove the obvious Nazis and restore a working civilian administration, a task he accomplished in 8 days.[18] Kissinger was then reassigned to the Counter Intelligence Corps, with the rank of Sergeant. He was given charge of a team in Hanover assigned to tracking down Gestapo officers and other saboteurs, for which he was awarded the Bronze Star.[19] In June 1945, Kissinger was made commandant of a CIC detachment in the BergstraĂ&#x;e district of Hesse, with responsibility for de-Nazification of the district. Although he possessed absolute authority and powers of arrest, Kissinger took care to avoid abuses against the local population by his command.[20] In 1946, Kissinger was reassigned to teach at the European Command Intelligence School at Camp King, continuing to serve in this role as a civilian employee following his separation from the Army.[21][22]

Academic career Henry Kissinger received his B.A. degree summa cum laude at Harvard College in 1950, where he studied under William Yandell Elliott.[23] He received his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees at Harvard University in 1952 and 1954, respectively. In 1952, while still at Harvard, he served as a consultant to the Director of the Psychological Strategy Board.[24] His doctoral dissertation was titled "Peace, Legitimacy, and the Equilibrium (A Study of the Statesmanship of Castlereagh and Metternich)." Kissinger remained at Harvard as a member of the faculty in the Department of Government and at the Center for International Affairs. He became Associate Director of the latter in 1957. In 1955, he was a consultant to the National Security Council's Operations Coordinating Board.[24] During 1955 and 1956, he was also Study Director in Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy at the Council on The Witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & www.witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za

Foreign Relations. He released his book Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy the following year.[25] From 1956 to 1958 he worked for the Rockefeller Brothers Fund as director of its Special Studies Project.[24] He was Director of the Harvard Defense Studies Program between 1958 and 1971. He was also Director of the Harvard International Seminar between 1951 and 1971. Outside of academia, he served as a consultant to several government agencies, including the Operations Research Office, the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, and the Department of State, and the Rand Corporation, a think-tank.[24]

Keen to have a greater influence on US foreign policy, Kissinger became a supporter of, and advisor to, Nelson Rockefeller, Governor of New York, who sought the Republican nomination for President in 1960, 1964 and 1968. After Richard Nixon won the presidency in 1968, he made Kissinger National Security Advisor.

Foreign policy Kissinger served as National Security Advisor and Secretary of State under President Richard Nixon, and continued as Secretary of State under Nixon's successor Gerald Ford.[26] A proponent of Realpolitik, Kissinger played a dominant role in United States foreign policy between 1969 and 1977. In that period, he extended the policy of détente. This policy led to a significant relaxation in U.S.-Soviet tensions and played a crucial role in 1971 talks with Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai. The talks concluded with a rapprochement between the United States and the People's Republic of China, and the formation of a new strategic anti-Soviet SinoAmerican alignment. He was awarded the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize for helping to establish a ceasefire and US withdrawal from Vietnam. The ceasefire, however, was not durable.[27]

Détente and the opening to China As National Security Advisor under Nixon, Kissinger pioneered the policy of détente with the Soviet Union, seeking a relaxation in tensions between the two superpowers. As a part of this strategy, he negotiated the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (culminating in the SALT I treaty) and the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with Leonid Brezhnev, General Secretary of the Soviet Communist Party. Negotiations about strategic disarmament were originally supposed to start under the Johnson Administration but were postponed in protest to the invasion by Warsaw Pact troops of Czechoslovakia in August 1968. Kissinger sought to place diplomatic pressure on the Soviet Union. He made two trips to the People's Republic of China in July and October, 1971 (the first of which was made in secret) to confer with Premier Zhou Enlai, then in charge of Chinese foreign policy. This paved the way for the groundbreaking 1972 summit between Nixon, Zhou, and Communist Party of China Chairman Mao Zedong, as well as the formalization of relations between the two countries, ending 23 years of diplomatic isolation and mutual hostility. The result was the formation of a tacit strategic anti-Soviet alliance between China and the United States. While Kissinger's diplomacy led to economic and cultural exchanges between the two sides and the establishment of Liaison Offices in the Chinese and American capitals, with serious implications for Indochinese matters, full normalization of relations with the People's Republic of China would not occur until 1979, because the Watergate scandal overshadowed the latter years of the Nixon presidency and because the United States continued to recognize the government of Taiwan.

Vietnam War Kissinger's involvement in Indochina started prior to his appointment as National Security Adviser to Nixon. While still at Harvard, he had worked as a consultant on foreign policy to both the White House and State Department. Kissinger says that "In August 1965... [Henry Cabot Lodge], an old friend serving as Ambassador to Saigon, had asked me to visit Vietnam as his consultant. I toured Vietnam first for two weeks in October and November 1965, again for about ten days in July 1966, and a third time for a few days in October 1966... Lodge gave me a free hand to look into any subject of my choice". He became convinced of the meaninglessness of military victories in Vietnam, "...unless they brought about a political reality that could survive our ultimate withdrawal".[28] In a 1967 peace initiative, he would mediate between Washington and Hanoi. Nixon had been elected in 1968 on the promise of achieving "peace with honor" and ending the Vietnam War. In office, and assisted by Kissinger, Nixon implemented a policy of Vietnamization that aimed to gradually withdraw US troops while expanding the combat role of the enabling South Vietnamese Army so that it would be capable of independently defending its regime against the National Front for the Liberation of South Vietnam, a Communist guerrilla organization, and North The Witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & www.witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za

Vietnamese army (Vietnam People's Army or PAVN). Kissinger played a key role in a secret bombing campaign in Cambodia to disrupt PAVN and Viet Cong units launching raids into South Vietnam from within Cambodia's borders and resupplying their forces by using the Ho Chi Minh trail and other routes, as well as the 1970 Cambodian Incursion and subsequent widespread bombing of Cambodia. The bombing campaign contributed to the chaos of the Cambodian Civil War, which saw the forces of dictator Lon Nol unable to retain foreign support to combat the growing Khmer Rouge insurgency that would overthrow him in 1975.[29][30] Documents uncovered from the Soviet archives after 1991 reveal that the North Vietnamese invasion of Cambodia in 1970 was launched at the explicit request of the Khmer Rouge and negotiated by Pol Pot's then second in command, Nuon Chea.[31] The American bombing of Cambodia killed an estimated 40,000 combatants and civilians.[32] Pol Pot biographer David Chandler argues that the bombing "had the effect the Americans wanted – it broke the Communist encirclement of Phnom Penh,"[33] while Christopher Hitchens asserts that the bombing may have increased recruitment for the Khmer Rouge. Along with North Vietnamese Politburo Member Le Duc Tho, Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on December 10, 1973, for their work in negotiating the ceasefires contained in the Paris Peace Accords on "Ending the War and Restoring Peace in Vietnam," signed the January previous.[27] Tho rejected the award, telling Kissinger that peace had not been really restored in South Vietnam.[34] Kissinger wrote to the Nobel Committee that he accepted the award "with humility."[35][36] The conflict continued until an invasion of the South by the North Vietnamese Army resulted in a North Vietnamese victory in 1975 and the subsequent progression of the Pathet Lao in Laos towards figurehead status.

1971 Liberation War of Bangladesh Under Kissinger's guidance, the United States government supported Pakistan in the Liberation War of Bangladesh in 1971. Kissinger was particularly concerned about the expansion of Soviet influence in South Asia as a result of a treaty of friendship recently signed by India and the USSR, and sought to demonstrate to the People's Republic of China (Pakistan's ally and an enemy of both India and the USSR) the value of a tacit alliance with the United States.[37] In recent years, Kissinger has come under fire for private comments he made to Nixon during the Bangladesh-Pakistan War in which he described then-Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi as a "bitch" and a "witch". He also said "The Indians are bastards," shortly before the war.[38] Kissinger has since expressed his regret over the comments.[39] Of Khan's role in planning the US opening to China, Kissinger said: "Yahya hasn't had so much fun since the last Hindu massacre." Main article: Indo-Pakistan War

Israeli Policy and Soviet Jewry According to notes taken by H.R. Haldeman, Nixon "ordered his aides to exclude all Jewish-Americans from policy-making on Israel," including Kissinger.[40] One note quotes Nixon as saying “get K. [Kissinger] out of the play — Haig handle it."[40] In 1973, Kissinger did not feel that pressing the Soviet Union concerning the plight of Jews being persecuted there was in the interest of US foreign policy. In conversation with Nixon shortly after a meeting with Golda Meir on March 1, 1973, Kissinger stated, “The emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an objective of American foreign policy, and if they put Jews into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern. Maybe a humanitarian concern.”[41] In addition, Kissinger felt unease about what he viewed as growing demands on the part of Israeli leaders for US support, and in a telephone conversation with Daniel Patrick Moynihan he referred to the Israeli government leadership as "a sick bunch".[42] In a conversation with Robert McNamara he said about Israeli leaders: "We have vetoed 8 resolutions for the past years, given them $ 4 billion in aid, voted for resolutions composed entirely of our own statements and deleted things we objected to previously and we still are treated as if we have done nothing for them".[43]

1973 Yom Kippur War In 1973, Kissinger negotiated the end to the Yom Kippur War, which had begun on October 6, 1973 when Egypt and Syria attacked Israel. Kissinger has published lengthy and dramatic telephone transcripts from this period in the 2002 book Crisis. One week later, under Nixon's direction, and against Kissinger's initial opposition,[44] the US military conducted the largest military airlift in history to aid Israel on October 12, 1973. US action contributed to the 1973 oil crisis in the United States and its Western European allies, which ended in March 1974. Israel regained the territory it lost in the early fighting and gained new territories from Syria and The Witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & www.witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za

Egypt, including land in Syria east of the previously captured Golan Heights, and additionally on the western bank of the Suez Canal, although they did lose some territory on the eastern side of the Suez Canal that had been in Israeli hands since the end of the Six Day War. Kissinger pressured the Israelis to cede some of the newly captured land back to its Arab neighbours, contributing to the first phases of Israeli-Egyptian non-aggression. The move saw a warming in US–Egyptian relations, bitter since the 1950s, as the country moved away from its former independent stance and into a close partnership with the United States. The peace was finalized in 1978 when U.S. President Jimmy Carter mediated the Camp David Accords, during which Israel returned the Sinai Peninsula in exchange for an Egyptian agreement to recognize the state of Israel.

Latin American policy The United States continued to recognize and maintain relationships with non-left-wing governments, democratic and authoritarian alike. John F. Kennedy's Alliance for Progress was ended in 1973. In 1974, negotiations about new settlement over Panama Canal started. They eventually led to the Torrijos-Carter Treaties and handing the Canal over to Panamanian control. Kissinger initially supported the normalization of United States-Cuba relations, broken since 1961 (all U.S.–Cuban trade was blocked in February 1962, a few weeks after the exclusion of Cuba from the Organization of American States because of US pressure). However, he quickly changed his mind and followed Kennedy's policy. After the involvement of the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces in the liberation struggles in Angola and Mozambique, Kissinger said that unless Cuba withdrew its forces relations would not be normalized. Cuba refused. See also: United States-Latin American relations

Intervention in Chile Chilean Socialist Party presidential candidate Salvador Allende was elected by a plurality in 1970, causing serious concern in Washington, D.C. due to his openly socialist and pro-Cuban politics. The Nixon administration authorized the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to encourage a military coup that would prevent Allende's inauguration, but the plan was not successful.[45] The extent of Kissinger's involvement in or support of these plans is a subject of controversy.[46] United States-Chile relations remained frosty during Salvador Allende's tenure, following the complete nationalization of the partially U.S.-owned copper mines and the Chilean subsidiary of the U.S.-based ITT Corporation, as well as other Chilean businesses. The U.S. claimed that the Chilean government had greatly undervalued fair compensation for the nationalization by subtracting what it deemed "excess profits". Therefore, the U.S. considered (but never actually implemented[47]) economic sanctions against Chile. The CIA provided education for the military officers directly involved in the coup against Allende[33] The CIA also provided funding for the mass anti-government strikes in 1972 and 1973. During this period, Kissinger made several controversial statements regarding Chile's government, stating that "the issues are much too important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves" and "I don't see why we need to stand by and watch a country go Communist due to the irresponsibility of its people."[34] These remarks sparked outrage among many commentators, who considered them patronizing and disparaging of both Chile's sovereignty and democracy. The CIA, as recounted in the Church Committee report, was involved in various plots designed to remove Allende and then let the Chileans vote in a new election where he would not be a candidate: It tried to buy off the Chilean Congress to prevent his appointment, attempted to have him exiled, worked to sway public opinion against him to prevent his election, tried to foil his political aspirations during the Lyndon B. Johnson administration, and financed protests designed to bring the country to a standstill and make him resign. Convinced that a conventional military uprising was still not possible in Chile, the CIA, acting with the approval of the 40 Committee—the body charged with overseeing covert actions abroad—devised what in effect was a constitutional coup. The most expeditious way to prevent Allende from assuming office was somehow to convince the Chilean congress to confirm Alessandri as the winner of the election. Once elected by the congress, Alessandri—a party to the plot through intermediaries—was prepared to resign his presidency within a matter of days so that new elections could be held. The CIA also learned of a number of plots to establish a military dictatorship. Although it pointedly refused to materially assist any of them, and actually worked to prevent several of the more unlikely plots for fear they would fail and strengthen Allende; it also encouraged several of the plots and did nothing to prevent them. It assured the plotters that such an event would be welcomed in Washington and that the US would not cut off aid over potential human rights violations.[45] A Chilean Supreme Court investigation accused Allende of support of armed groups, torture, illegal arrests, muzzling the press, confiscating private property, and not allowing people to leave the country.[48]

On September 11, 1973, Allende was killed during a military coup launched by Army Commander-in-Chief Augusto Pinochet, who became President.[35] Later this statement was revised and replaced by the following statement: On September 11, 1973, Allende committed suicide during a military coup launched by Army Commander-in-Chief Augusto Pinochet, who became President.[49] A document released by the CIA in 2000 titled "CIA Activities in Chile" revealed that the CIA actively supported the military junta after the overthrow of Allende and that it made many of Pinochet's officers into paid contacts of the CIA or US military, even though many were known to be involved in notorious human rights abuses,[50] until Democratic challenger Jimmy Carter defeated President Gerald Ford in 1976.

On September 16, 1973, five days after Pinochet had assumed power, the following exchange about the coup took place between Kissinger and President Nixon: Nixon: Nothing new of any importance or is there? Kissinger: Nothing of very great consequence. The Chilean thing is getting consolidated and of course the newspapers are bleeding because a pro-Communist government has been overthrown. Nixon: Isn't that something. Isn't that something. Kissinger: I mean instead of celebrating – in the Eisenhower period we would be heroes. Nixon: Well we didn't – as you know – our hand doesn't show on this one though. Kissinger: We didn't do it. I mean we helped them. [garbled] created the conditions as great as possible. Nixon: That is right. And that is the way it is going to be played.[51] In 1976, Kissinger canceled a letter that was to be sent to Chile warning them against carrying out any political assassinations. Orlando Letelier was then assassinated in Washington, D.C. with a car bomb on September 21, 1976, the day the letter was to be sent.[52] In an Aug. 30, 1976 memo, Shlaudeman discussed the possibility that the U.S. ambassador in Uruguay might be endangered by delivering a warning against assassination. The U.S. ambassador to Chile said that Pinochet might take as an insult any inference that he was connected with assassination plots.[53] Main article: United States intervention in Chile

Intervention in Argentina Kissinger took a similar line as he had toward Chile when the Argentine military, led by Jorge Videla, toppled the democratic government of Isabel Perón in 1976 with a process named as "National Reorganization Process" by the military, with which they consolidated power, launching brutal reprisals and "disappearances" against political opponents. During a meeting with Argentine foreign minister César Augusto Guzzetti, Kissinger assured him that the United States was an ally, but urged him to "get back to normal procedures" quickly before the U.S. Congress reconvened and had a chance to consider sanctions.[54] See also: National Reorganization Process

Africa In 1974 a leftist military coup overthrew the Caetano government in Portugal in the Carnation Revolution. The National Salvation Junta, the new government, quickly granted Portugal's colonies independence. Cuban troops in Angola supported the left-wing Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) in its fight against right-wing UNITA and FNLA rebels during the Angolan Civil War (1975–2002). Kissinger supported FNLA, led by Holden Roberto, and UNITA, led by Jonas Savimbi, the Mozambican National Resistance (RENAMO) insurgencies, as well as the CIA-supported invasion of Angola by South African troops. The FNLA was defeated and UNITA was forced to take its fight into the bush. Only under Reagan's presidency would U.S. support for UNITA return. In September 1976 Kissinger was actively involved in negotiations regarding the Rhodesian Bush War. Kissinger, along with South Africa's Prime Minister John Vorster, pressured Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith to hasten the transition to black majority rule in Rhodesia. With FRELIMO in control of Mozambique and even South Africa withdrawing its support, Rhodesia's isolation was nearly complete. According to Smith's autobiography, Kissinger told Smith of Mrs. Kissinger's admiration for him, but Smith stated that he thought Kissinger was asking him to sign Rhodesia's "death certificate". Kissinger, bringing the weight of the United States, and corralling other relevant parties to put pressure on Rhodesia, hastened the end of minority-rule.

East Timor The Portuguese decolonization process brought US attention to the former Portuguese colony of East Timor, which lies within the Indonesian archipelago and declared its independence in 1975. Indonesian president Suharto was a strong US ally in Southeast Asia and began to mobilize the Indonesian army, The Witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & www.witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za

preparing to annex the nascent state, which had become increasingly dominated by the popular leftist FRETILIN party. In December 1975, Suharto discussed the invasion plans during a meeting with Kissinger and President Ford in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta. Both Ford and Kissinger made clear that US relations with Indonesia would remain strong and that it would not object to the proposed annexation. US arms sales to Indonesia continued, and Suharto went ahead with the annexation plan. Main article: Indonesian occupation of East Timor

Later roles Shortly after Kissinger left office in 1977, he was offered an endowed chair at Columbia University. There was significant student opposition to the appointment,[55] which eventually became a subject of significant media commentary[56] Columbia cancelled the appointment as a result. Kissinger was then appointed to Georgetown University's Center for Strategic and International Studies.[57] Kissinger published a dialogue with the Japanese philosopher, Daisaku Ikeda, On Peace, Life and Philosophy. He taught at Georgetown's Edmund Walsh School of Foreign Service for several years in the late 1970s. In 1982, Kissinger founded a consulting firm, Kissinger Associates, and is a partner in affiliate Kissinger McLarty Associates with Mack McLarty, former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton.[58] He also serves on board of directors of Hollinger International, a Chicago-based newspaper group,[59] and as of March 1999, he also serves on board of directors of Gulfstream Aerospace.[60] In 1978, Kissinger was named chairman of the North American Soccer League board of directors.[61] From 1995 to 2001, he served on the board of directors for Freeport-McMoRan, a multinational copper and gold producer with significant mining and milling operations in Papua, Indonesia.[62] In February 2000, then-president of Indonesia Abdurrahman Wahid appointed Kissinger as a political advisor. He also serves as an honorary advisor to the United States-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce.

Oversight of United States covert operations NSC 5412/2 Special Group The NSC 5412/2 Special Group, often referred simply as the Special Group, was an initially secret, but later public, subcommittee of the United States National Security Council responsible for coordinating government covert operations. Presidential Directive NSC 5412/2, issued December 28, 1954, assigned responsibility for co-ordination of covert actions to representatives of the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, and the President respectively. The Federation of American Scientists list of national security documents for the Eisenhower administration does not show a directive 5412/2. It does however show a 5412/1 with a classified title (one of only three such documents for the entire administration). A National Security Archive chronology of the Bay of Pigs Invasion indicates a membership in December 1960 of Allen Dulles, Chairman of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA); Gordon Gray, National Security Advisor; James Douglas, Acting Secretary of Defense; and Livingston T. Merchant, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs.[1] 303 Committee The covert actions oversight group was renamed the 303 Committee after National Security Action Memorandum No. 303 on June 2, 1964. McGeorge Bundy, National Security Advisor, became Chairman for the committee. The successor to the Special Group was the 40 Committee.[2] 40 Committee The 40 Committee was a division of the Executive branch of the United States government whose mandate was to review proposed major covert actions. In 1970 the 40 Committee played a major role in so called "Track I" efforts to prevent Salvador Allende from taking office following the Chilean popular vote of September 4, 1970. The Committee was a successor to earlier covert oversight and planning groups, variously known as the Special Group 10/2, 5412 Panel, NSC 5412/2 Special Group, Special Group (until 1964), 303 Committee (to 1969), existing since 1954 at the latest.

Operations Advisory Group On February 18, 1976, 40 committee was replaced by the Operations Advisory Group, in accordance with Executive Order 11905 issued by Gerald Ford. The new group was composed of the President's Assistant for National Security Affairs, the Secretaries of State and Defense, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Director of Central Intelligence.[3] NSC Special Coordination Committee The following year, on May 13, 1977 President Jimmy Carter issued Executive Order 11985 which updated the previous order such that the Operations Advisory Group thereafter would be known as the NSC Special Coordination Committee[4]

National Security Planning Group Under the Reagan administration, the Special Coordination Committee was replaced by the National Security Planning Group which included the Vice-President, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of State, the Assistant for National Security Affairs, and the Director of the CIA.[5] Special Intelligence Office During the Bush Administration, around 2002-2003, the Department of Defense created a specialized group focusing on all military efforts surrounding Iraq, Afghanistan, and Near East countries, and also efforts related to the Global War on Terror, inside the Pentagon. This group was said to be responsible for 'cooking' intelligence on presnce and threats by Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq under Saddam Hussein regime, which has been cause of Iraq invasion. This group was called an ad-hoc and arbituary group, but in 2004, the group functions were transferred to the "Office of Special Plans."

Public perception Kissinger, like the rest of the Nixon administration, was unpopular with the anti-war political left, especially after his central role in the U.S. bombing of neutral Cambodia was revealed. Kissinger was also opposed by more ideological elements of the Republican foreign policy establishment for his policy of dĂŠtente and accommodation with the Soviets. However, few doubted his intellect and diplomatic skill, and he became one of the better-liked members of the Nixon administration, though many Americans came to view Kissinger's talents as increasingly cynical and self-serving. Kissinger was not connected with the Watergate scandal, which spared him from the controversy that would eventually ruin the reputations of Nixon and many of his closest aides. At the height of Kissinger's prominence, he was known by the public and in Washington for his wit. In one instance, at the Washington Press Club annual congressional dinner, "Kissinger mocked his reputation as a secret swinger."[72] He was quoted as saying "Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac."[73] Since he left office, numerous efforts have been made to charge Kissinger personally for the perceived injustices of American foreign policy during his tenure in office. These charges have at times inconvenienced his travels.[74]

Henry Kissinger has been part of many covert operations. What is a covert operation? A Covert Operation A covert operation (also as CoveOps or covert ops) is a military, intelligence or law enforcement operation that is carried clandestinely and, often, outside of official channels. Covert operations aim to fulfill their mission objectives without any parties knowing who sponsored or carried out the operation. Under United States law, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is the sole agency legally allowed to carry out Covert Action.[1] The CIA's authority to conduct Covert Action comes from the National Security Act of 1947.[2] President Ronald Reagan issued Executive Order 12333 titled in 1984. This order defined covert action as "special activities", both political and military, that the US Government could legally deny. The CIA was also designated as the sole authority under the 1991 Intelligence Authorization Act and in Title 50 of the United States Code Section 413(e).[2][3] The CIA must have a "Presidential Finding" issued by the President of the United States in order to conduct these activities under the Hughes-Ryan amendment to the 1991 Intelligence Authorization Act.[1] These findings are then monitored by the oversight committees in both the US Senate and the House of Representatives.[4] As a result of this framework, the CIA has the most oversight of any other government agency.[5] The Special Activities Division (SAD) is a division of the CIA's National Clandestine Service, responsible for Covert Action and "Special Activities". These special activities include covert political influence and paramilitary operations. The division is overseen by the United States Secretary of State[2]

Military intelligence and foreign policy Covert operations and clandestine operations are distinct. The Department of Defense Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms (Joint Publication JP1-02), defines "covert operation" as "an operation that is so planned and executed as to conceal the identity of or permit plausible denial by the sponsor. A covert operation differs from a clandestine operation in that emphasis is placed on concealment of identity of sponsor rather than on concealment of the operation." The United States Department of Defense definition has been used by the United States and NATO since World War II. In a covert operation, the identity of the sponsor is concealed, while in a clandestine operation the operation itself is concealed. Put differently, clandestine means "hidden," while covert means "deniable." The term stealth refers both to a broad set of tactics aimed at providing and preserving the element of surprise and reducing enemy resistance and to a set of technologies (stealth technology) to aid in those tactics. While secrecy and stealthiness are often desired in clandestine and covert operations, the terms secret and stealthy are not used to formally describe types of missions. Covert operations are employed in situations where openly operating against a target would be disadvantageous. These operations are generally illegal in the target state and are frequently in violation of the laws of the sponsoring country. Operations may be directed at or conducted with allies and friends to secure their support for controversial components of foreign policy throughout the world. Covert operations may include sabotage, assassinations, support for coups d'état, or support for subversion. Tactics include the use of a false flag or front group. The activity of organizations engaged in covert operations is in some instances similar to, or overlaps with, the activity of front organizations. While covert organizations are generally of a more official military or paramilitary nature, like the DVS German Air Transport School in the Nazi era, the line between both becomes muddled in the case of front organizations engaged in terrorist activities and organized crime.

Church Committee The Church Committee is the common term referring to the United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, a U.S. Senate committee chaired by Senator Frank Church (D-ID) in 1975. A precursor to the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, the committee investigated intelligence gathering for illegality by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after certain activities had been revealed by the Watergate affair. In 1975 and 1976, the Church Committee published fourteen reports on the formation of U.S. intelligence agencies, their operations, and the alleged abuses of law and of power that they had committed, together with recommendations for reform, some of which were put in place. Among the matters investigated were attempts to assassinate foreign leaders, including Patrice Lumumba of the Congo, Rafael Trujillo of the Dominican Republic, the Diem brothers of Vietnam, Gen. René Schneider of Chile and President John F. Kennedy's plan to use the Mafia to kill Fidel Castro of Cuba. Under recommendations and pressure by this committee, President Gerald Ford issued Executive Order 11905 (ultimately replaced in 1981 by President Reagan's Executive Order 12333) to ban U.S. sanctioned assassinations of foreign leaders. Together, the Church Committee's reports have been said to constitute the most extensive review of intelligence activities ever made available to the public. Much of the contents were classified, but more than 50,000 pages have since been declassified under the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992.

Operation Condor Operation Condor was a campaign of political repression involving assassination and intelligence operations officially implemented in 1975 by the right-wing dictatorships of the Southern Cone of South America. The program aimed to eradicate alleged socialist and communist influence and ideas and to control active or potential opposition movements against the participating governments.[1] Due to its clandestine nature, the precise number of deaths directly attributable to Operation Condor is highly disputed. It is estimated The Witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & www.witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za

-21-


that a minimum of 60,000 deaths can be attributed to Condor,[2] possibly more.[3][4][5] Condor's key members were the governments in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Bolivia and Brazil. The United States participated in a supervisory capacity, with Ecuador and Peru joining later in more peripheral roles.[6]

U.S. involvement Although the United States was not a member of the Condor consortium, evidence shows that the United States provided key organizational, financial and technical assistance to the operation. The United States government sponsored and collaborated with DINA and with the other intelligence organizations forming the nucleus of Condor, despite the fact that the military dictatorships were killing and torturing tens of thousands of people. CIA documents show that the CIA had close contact with members of the Chilean secret police, DINA, and its chief Manuel Contreras.[42] Contreras was retained as a paid CIA contact until 1977, even as his involvement in the Letelier-Moffit assassination was being reveled. In the Paraguayan Archives there were official requests to track suspects to and from the U.S. Embassy, the CIA, and FBI. The CIA provided lists of suspects and other intelligence information to the military states. The FBI also searched for individuals wanted by DINA in the United States in 1975. [43] In June 1999, the State Department released thousands of declassified documents [44] showing for the first time that the CIA and the State and Defense Departments were intimately aware of Condor; one Defense Department intelligence report dated October 1, 1976, noted that Latin American military officers bragged about it to their U.S. counterparts. The same report approvingly described Condor's "joint counterinsurgency operations" that aimed to "eliminate Marxist terrorist activities"; Argentina, it noted, created a special Condor team "structured much like a U.S. Special Forces Team." [45] Material declassified in 2004 states that "The declassified record shows that Secretary Kissinger was briefed on Condor and its 'murder operations' on August 5, 1976, in a 14-page report from Shlaudeman. 'Internationally, the Latin generals look like our guys,' Shlaudeman cautioned. 'We are especially identified with Chile. It cannot do us any good.' Shlaudeman and his two deputies, William Luers and Hewson Ryan, recommended action. Over the course of three weeks, they drafted a cautiously worded demarche, approved by Kissinger, in which he instructed the U.S. ambassadors in the Southern Cone countries to meet with the respective heads of state about Condor. He instructed them to express 'our deep concern' about 'rumors' of 'plans for the assassination of subversives, politicians and prominent figures both within the national borders of certain Southern Cone countries and abroad.'"[7] Ultimately, the demarche was never delivered. Kornbluh and Dinges suggest that the decision not to send Kissinger's order was due to a cable sent by Assistant Secretary Harry Shlaudeman to his deputy in D.C which states "you can simply instruct the Ambassadors to take no further action, noting that there have been no reports in some weeks indicating an intention to activate the Condor scheme."[46] McSherry, adds, "According to [U.S. Ambassador to Paraguay Robert] White, instructions from a secretary of state cannot be ignored unless there is a countermanding order received via a secret (CIA) backchannel." [47] Kornbluh and Dinges conclude that "The paper trail is clear: the State Department and the CIA had enough intelligence to take concrete steps to thwart Condor assassination planning. Those steps were initiated but never implemented." Shlaudeman's deputy Hewson Ryan later acknowledged in an oral history interview that the State Department was "remiss" in its handling of the case. "We knew fairly early on that the governments of the Southern Cone countries were planning, or at least talking about, some assassinations abroad in the summer of 1976. ... Whether if we had gone in, we might have prevented this, I don't know," he stated in reference to the Letelier-Moffitt bombing. "But we didn't." A CIA document called Condor "a counter-terrorism organization" and noted that the Condor countries had a specialized telecommunications system called "CONDORTEL." [48] A 1978 cable from the US ambassador to Paraguay, Robert White, to the Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, was published on March 6, 2001 by the New York Times. The document was released in November 2000 by the Clinton administration under the Chile Declassification Project. In the cable Ambassador White reported a conversation with General Alejandro Fretes Davalos, chief of staff of Paraguay's armed forces, who informed him that the South American intelligence chiefs involved in Condor "[kept] in touch with one another through a U.S. communications installation in the Panama Canal Zone which cover[ed] all of Latin America". According to Davalos, this installation was "employed to co-ordinate intelligence information among the southern cone countries". Robert White feared that the US connection to Condor might be publicly revealed at a time when the assassination in the U.S.A. of Chilean former minister Orlando Letelier and his American assistant Ronni Moffitt was being investigated. White cabled that "it would seem advisable to review this arrangement to insure that its continuation is in US interest." The "information exchange" (via telex) included torture techniques (e.g. near-drowning, and playing recordings of victims who were being tortured to their families). This demonstrates that the US facilitated communications for Operation Condor, and has been called by J. Patrice McSherry (Long Island Univ.) "another piece of increasingly weighty evidence suggesting that U.S. military and intelligence officials supported and collaborated with Condor as a secret partner or sponsor."[49]

In addition, an Argentine military source told a U.S. Embassy contact that the CIA was privy to Condor and had played a key role in setting up computerized links among the intelligence and operations units of the six Condor states. [50] Further information: U.S. intervention in Chile

Henry Kissinger’s involment Henry Kissinger, Secretary of State in the Nixon and Ford administrations, was closely involved diplomatically with the Southern Cone governments at the time and well aware of the Condor plan. According to the French newspaper L'Humanité, the first cooperation agreements were signed between the CIA and anti-Castro groups, fascist movements such as the Triple A set up in Argentina by Juan Perón and Isabel Martínez de Perón's "personal secretary" José López Rega, and Rodolfo Almirón (arrested in Spain in 2006).[51] On May 31, 2001, French judge Roger Le Loire requested that a summons be served on Henry Kissinger while he was staying at the Hôtel Ritz in Paris. Loire wanted to question Kissinger as a witness for alleged U.S. involvement in Operation Condor and for possible US knowledge concerning the "disappearances" of 5 French nationals in Chile during military rule. Kissinger left Paris that evening, and Loire's inquiries were directed to the U.S. State Department.[52] In July 2001, the Chilean high court granted investigating judge Juan Guzmán the right to question Kissinger about the 1973 killing of American journalist Charles Horman, whose execution at the hands of the Chilean military following the coup was dramatized in the 1982 Costa-Gavras film, Missing. The judge’s questions were relayed to Kissinger via diplomatic routes but were not answered.[53] In August 2001, Argentine Judge Rodolfo Canicoba sent a letter rogatory to the US State Department, in accordance with the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT), requesting a deposition by Kissinger to aid the judge's investigation of Operation Condor.[54] On September 10, 2001, a civil suit was filed in a Washington, D.C., federal court by the family of Gen. René Schneider, murdered former Commander-in-Chief of the Chilean Army, asserting that Kissinger ordered Schneider's murder because he refused to endorse plans for a military coup. Schneider was killed by coup-plotters loyal to General Roberto Viaux in a botched kidnapping attempt. As part of the suit, Schneider’s two sons are attempting to sue Kissinger and then-CIA director Richard Helms for $3 million.[55][56][57] On September 11, 2001, the 28th anniversary of the Pinochet coup, Chilean human rights lawyers filed a criminal case against Kissinger along with Augusto Pinochet, former Bolivian general and president Hugo Banzer, former Argentine general and dictator Jorge Rafael Videla, and former Paraguayan president Alfredo Stroessner for alleged involvement in Operation Condor. The case was brought on behalf of some fifteen victims of Operation Condor, ten of whom were Chilean.[citation needed] In late 2001, the Brazilian government canceled an invitation for Kissinger to speak in São Paulo because it could not guarantee his immunity from judicial action. On February 16, 2007, a request for the extradition of Kissinger was filed at the Supreme Court of Uruguay on behalf of Bernardo Arnone, a political activist who was kidnapped, tortured and disappeared by the dictatorial regime in 1976.[58]

Henry Kissinger was implicated as the cause of many governments’ being toppled; government officials being assassinated, causing revolutions and wars in countries all over the world. He was part of all the major decisions, which was made at every major war in the past 50 years. The God of the Universe, YHWH, who knows the hearts of men, revealed to me that he was the master mind behind all the strategic planning of the wars and the operations that was needed. The apostles John wrote about Yahshua, saying: 24 But Jesus for His part did not trust Himself to them, because He knew all men; 25 And He did not need anyone to bear witness concerning man, needed no evidence from anyone about men, for He Himself knew what was in human nature. He could read men's hearts. (John 2:24-25 Ampl) Yahshua knows the hearts of all men and sees the deepest attitudes and intentions of the heart. He knows the motives of each heart of man. He will soon come to judge both the living and the dead and then He will reward each person as his deeds deserve and according to their conduct. Yahshua reminds us as His church, not to be deceived and that He sees into the secret chambers of our hearts, as is written: “These are the words of the Son of God, Who has eyes that flash like a flame of fire…” (Rev 2:18 Ampl) The eyes of God search all things and nothing is hidden from Him, who will now come to judge the disobedient. After just studying all that this man has been involved in, it becomes clear to the person who knows the heart of man that this man was involved in all that was going on behind the scenes. He was the master mind who helped to plan and executed the killing and assassination of any person who had become an enemy of the state. This single man, the Spirit of Yahshua revealed to us as the ‘heart of the Illuminati’ or the one who sits in the highest order of the secret society in the western world.

He, who now restrains him... This man must also be removed out of the way before the prophesied Anti-Christ could take his position in the one world government as leader and dictator or Emperor of the World, as was prophesied by the apostle Paul, saying: 1 BUT RELATIVE to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah and our gathering together to meet Him, we beg you, brethren, 2 Not to allow your minds to be quickly unsettled or disturbed or kept excited or alarmed, whether it be by some pretended revelation of the Spirit or by word or by letter alleged to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has already arrived and is here. 3 Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first, unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come, and the man of lawlessness or sin is revealed, who is the son of doom or of perdition, 4 Who opposes and exalts himself so proudly and insolently against and over all that is called God or that is worshiped, even to his actually taking his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming that he himself is God. (2 Thess 2:1-4 Ampl) Here is very important statement that Paul makes. He told the church of Thessalonica that both the coming of Yahshua and the gathering to Him cannot come until...!

apostasy has taken place and the man of lawlessness has been revealed. The great apostasy has already taken place over the last 2000 years, through the division of the church into hundreds of scattered denominations and factions, each having its own set of doctrines and rules. If they were not in disagreement with one another, why do they then not work together in unity? The second and the most significant sign of Yahshua’s coming to gather His children are the revealing of the man of total lawlessness. This man, Henry Kissinger has lived above not only the law of YHWH, but also above the law of the western world. From all the atrocities that were committed indirectly under his supervision and command, it is clear that he is a true type of the man of lawlessness. Yet he is not the man of sin or the Anti-Christ. Paul continues to give us a prophetic revelation, which was confirmed also to me, while in a 40 day fast, saying: 6 And now you know what is restraining him from being revealed at this time; it is so that he may be manifested or revealed in his own appointed time. (2Thess 2:6 Ampl) Something or someone will restrain the man of sin, until he is taken out of the way.

The Holy Spirit now restrains During the months of June-July 2008, I was taken into the spirit and was shown the future. I was taken, by the Spirit of Jesus Christ to several places and times in the future. I was taken to Hades – the place of the dead; I was taken to the lake of fire – the second death; I was also taken to the time of the great tribulation – the last 3.5 years, before Yahshua returns to take His rulership on the earth and I was taken to the 1000 year millennium, which will start after Yahshua has taken His rulership as King of all kings and LORD of all Lords. In each of the times and places I was allowed to learn and experience what would happen and how these places and times would be. While being in the last 3.5 years or the great tribulation I experienced things that are very fearful and also hard to explain. I was on the earth and knew the gathering of the saints had already taken place. As I looked at the people who had not prepared themselves, filling up their lamps with oil, I saw them worshipping another god, whom they also called Lord. It was if the people were hypnotized and under a powerful spell that was now upon the entire earth. That which was evil in the hearts of men, which formerly were subdued, now had no more restraint. The evil in the hearts of those who were religious came forward and the vilest arrogance came up from within them without restraint. If you used to have a hidden feeling or a grudge or jealousy in your heart, towards someone, which were suppressed within, it would be expressed to the extreme, without the ability to restrain. That which used to restrain those wicked desires and thoughts have been removed to a great extend, even though every man still had the ability to choose. Many have said that the Holy Spirit is the one who now restrains the Anti-Christ from being revealed. This is truly so! But the word of God is deep and unsearchable in its depth and levels of revelation. Only God can reveal and unseal His own word to the next degree or level. God is Spirit and His word is Spirit, the scriptures says: 11 For what person perceives, knows and understands what passes through a man's thoughts except the man's own spirit within him? Just so no one discerns or comes to know and comprehend the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have not received the spirit that belongs to the world, but the Holy Spirit Who is from God, given to us that we might realize and comprehend and appreciate the gifts of divine favor and blessing so freely and lavishly bestowed on us by God. 13 And we are setting these truths forth in words not taught by human wisdom, but taught by the Holy Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual truths with spiritual language to those who possess the Holy Spirit. 14 But the natural, nonspiritual man does not accept or welcome or admit into his heart the gifts and teachings and revelations of the Spirit of God, for they are folly, meaningless nonsense to him; and he is incapable of knowing them, of progressively recognizing, understanding, and becoming better acquainted with them, because they are spiritually discerned and estimated and appreciated. 15 But the spiritual man tries all things, he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things, yet is himself to be put on trial and judged by no one, he can read the meaning of everything, but no one can properly discern or appraise or get an insight into him. (1 Cor 2:11-15 Ampl) The Apostle Paul understood this, because he was taken into the third heaven and shown things, which were hard to explain. God is able to prophetically speak to every generation, each in its own time, across time, for He is outside of time and in the Spirit. YHWH had revealed another one who now restrains the coming and soon to be revealed Anti-Christ, as the ‘heart of the Illuminati’. The man, who is at the heart of the secret organization, called by YHWH – the heart of the Illuminati’, now restrains or prevents the man of sin from taking his The Witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & www.witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za

position of dictatorship. Although this man is so sinful, yet Yahshua consider him righteous compared to the one who is coming after him, to fill his position of leadership. The man of sin or also called the son of perdition, will first have to betray and deceive his own inner circle of people, just like Judas Iscariot, one of the 12 did, betraying those closest to him. More signs appeared to us on that same day. While we looked, a horse and it rider appeared in the north, in Europe. When we considered the vision it became a machinegun. This rider on this horse, who will rise out of Europe, just like Napoleon Bonaparte did, will be given the ability to take peace from the earth, as was prophesied: 3 And when He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature call out, Come! 4 And another horse came out, flaming red. And its rider was empowered to take the peace from the earth, so that men slaughtered one another; and he was given a huge sword. (Rev 6:3-4 Ampl) By means of the warfare arm of the European Union and with the support of the United Nations, he will use the weapons arsenals of the world to swiftly destroy all who do not bow down and worship him, accepting his authority over them.

The Sign of the Shetland Pony After this a Shetland pony appeared in the heavens, which is a national symbol for Scotland. These horses are bred in Europe. Later they were imported to the United States of America, who started to breed them to work in mines, because of their size.

Shetland Pony Shetland ponies originated in the Shetland Isles, located northeast of mainland Scotland. Small horses have been kept on the Shetland Isles since the Bronze Age. People who lived on the islands probably later crossed the native stock with ponies imported by Norse settlers. Shetland ponies also were probably influenced by the Celtic Pony, brought to the islands by the Celts between 2000 and 1000 BCE. The harsh climate and scarce food developed the ponies into extremely hardy animals. History also tells us that same type of pony came all the way from the

Bronze Age, revealing the origin and place from which he Anti-Christ will arise.

The Sign of Namibia After this sign a sign of the map of Namibia appeared in front of us.

Namibia The name of the country is derived from the Namib Desert, considered to be the oldest desert in the world.[4] Before its independence in 1990, the area was known first as German South-West Africa (Deutsch-Südwestafrika), then as South-West Africa, reflecting the colonial occupation by the Germans and the South Africans (technically on behalf of the British crown reflecting South Africa's dominion status within the British Empire).

German rule Namibia became a German colony in 1884 to forestall British encroachment although the Palgrave mission by the British governor in Cape Town determined that only the natural deep-water harbour of Walvis Bay (Walfisch, German, Walvis, Afrikaans- Whale in English) was worth occupying (it was annexed to the Cape) and was known as German South-West Africa (Deutsch-Südwestafrika)[6]—apart from Walvis Bay, which was under British control. From 1904 to 1907, the Herero and the Namaqua took up arms against the Germans and in the subsequent Herero and Namaqua genocide, 10,000 Nama (half the population) and approximately 65,000 Hereros (about 80% of the population) were killed.[7][8] The survivors, when finally released from detention, were subject to a policy of dispossession, deportation, forced labor, and racial segregation and discrimination in a system that in many ways anticipated apartheid. Most Africans were confined so-called native territories, which later under South African rule post-1949 were turned into "homelands" (Bantustans). Indeed, some historians have speculated the German genocide in Namibia was a model used by Nazis in the Holocaust,[9] but most scholars say that episode was not especially influential for Nazis, who were children at the time. However, the father of Luftwaffe commander Hermann Göring was a one-time German colonial governor of Namibia and has a street named after him in Swakopmund.[10] The memory of genocide remains relevant to ethnic identity in independent Namibia and to relations with Germany.[11]

Just like the German genocide in Namibia was modelled after the Nazi’s and ‘SS’ Gestapo, so will be the coming genocide of the inhabitants of the earth who refuse to worship and accept the Anti-Christ’s systems of control. The History of Namibia must a reminder of all who lived in that time. The deadly effects of racism will be repeated, but this time not against race or language, but against all who do not surrender to the control of the Beast systems of the one world government. While we looked the Spirit of God opened our spiritual eyes so that He even started to explain all that will happen using the elements of nature around us. Suddenly, three Haddida birds came from the northwest, later a forth joined them. All these birds faced northwards, facing Europe and the European Union. While we looked we saw their neighbours and friends called to them out of the East, Asia and China and out of the southwest or South America. Then the word of the Lord came to us, revealing the calling upon our lives and the price we would have to pay for prophesying all these things, saying: 25 Anyone who loves his life loses it, but anyone who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. Whoever has no love for, no concern for, no regard for his life here on earth, but despises it, preserves his life forever and ever. 26 If anyone serves Me, he must continue to follow Me, to cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying and wherever I am, there will My servant be also. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honour him. 27 Now My soul is troubled and distressed, and what shall I say? Father, save Me from this hour of trial and agony? But it was for this very purpose that I have come to this hour that I might undergo it. 28 Rather, I will say, Father, glorify and honour and extol Your own name! Then there came a voice out of heaven saying, I have already glorified it, and I will glorify it again. (John 12:25-28 Ampl) Those who would have to face the terrible decision, whether to follow the Beast or the Lord Yahshua, at the cost of their lives, will in that day have to stand strong even to the point of death.

Conclusion of the 7 Prophetic Waves: The first three waves are: • The first wave: The goat the long horn – The rise of Alexander the Great – President Obama attacking the East • The second wave: The crocodile coming out of an egg – Egypt making an agreement with the United States of America • The third wave: The Ram with two horns – The Medo-Persian Empire – Venezuela & Iran making an agreement •

Large chasm: Division between Goat and Crocodile – Disagreement between USA and Egypt. An alarm is great warning that time that is up. The appointed time has come!

• •

The Fourth wave: Sign of the Pagoda that fell – China and the East broken The Fifth wave: Sign of a tank – War broke out between the East and the west. The East recovers and takes revenge on the United States of America. The Sixth wave: The Sea horse and the Court Jester – The Anti-Christ, working behind the scenes until he comes of his reign for a time. First he has to remove three who are restraining or preventing him from coming to rule. • The arrogant One – President Obama – Will be assassinated of die in a freak accident • The eye of the dragon – Secretary General of the United Nations security Council Ban Ki-moon – will be betrayed and wiped out when the east attack • The Heart of the Illuminati – Henry Kissinger – master mind behind all strategy and plans of the Illuminati or Secret society.

• The Seventh wave: The Rise of the Anti-Christ and Nazi like Gestapo rulership until his time is fulfilled. The time of the fulfilment of all that Yahshua – Jesus Christ – the King of all kings and the LORD of all lords, warns us that the hour of his coming is very close at hand.

Let us now through off all that still keep us entangled in this world, let us run the predestined race, without contention and jealousy which comes from bitterness, that is set before each one of us, and let us fix our eyes on Jesus the only Author and Perfector of our faith. All glory and praise and honour belong to him alone, who has made us righteous, through his blood. From His servants and witnesses.
