President Trump hasn't even made it through his first 100 days and he's already staring down the barrel of an impending nuclear apocalypse. The world is a tinderbox from the Middle East to Asia and there are several lunatics playing with matches.
Throughout history, tyrants and dictators rise up and oppression and domination swell to a breaking point and freedom and righteousness must step up to the plate --- or else face enslavement. The biblical Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse represent death, famine, pestilence and war but all four are present in four key nations to the peace and security of our way of life.
Here is a look at four tyrants who are threatening to destabilize the entire world and life as we know it.
Syria: Bashar al-Assad
Four years ago, President Obama said his red line for taking action in Syria was the regime's use of chemical weapons. It was a line that was continually crossed with no action taken to stop it. Eventually, a deal was reached for Assad to dispose of his arsenal --- a deal John Kerry claimed as a success.
Fast forward to last week, Assad used what has been confirmed as Sarin gas to attack a rebel village and President Trump responded swiftly with a barrage of Tomahawk missiles to one of their airbases. The Syrians alliance with Russia, Iran and North Korea spells trouble for the rest of the world.
Russia: Vladamir Putin
Russia has risen from the ashes of the cold war to be quite the agent of chaos. Thanks in large part to the counsel from Aleksandr Dugin, Vladamir Putin has found a way to put Russia right in the middle of all of the most important events of today.
If they aren't rumored to have conspired to get Donald Trump elected they are accused of hacking our most vital institutions and now are war criminals. According to the accusations of Rex Tillerson, not only did Russia know about the Syrian gas attack in advance, they also provided aid in attempting to cover up the attack afterward.
Mix in a little aid to North Korea and Iran and you've got the makings of a nuclear event that would bring the world to its knees. It looks like the axis of evil is shifting and accepting new players.
Iran: Ayatollah Khamenei
Putin and Assad are dangerous because of their lust for power. Un is dangerous because he's straight up nuts. But Iran is the most dangerous of all for a totally different reason --- they really believe in the end of the world type of stuff. They want to cause chaos and destruction to bring back the Mahdi.
Iran has been linked to terrorism for decades and their pursuit of nuclear technology goes beyond their claims of 'peaceful purposes.' Continuing to ignore this fact will only lead to a more dangerous world and jeopardize the safety of people around the world.
North Korea: Kim Jong-Un
The other three tyrants mentioned are either ideologically driven or evil and power hungry and want to rule the world. But Kim Jong-Un is straight up certifiably insane. He is the wild card that could set the world ablaze and scar the face of the earth for generations to come.
China recently deployed 150,000 troops to the North Korean border to handle the influx of refugees in the aftermath of an attack from the United States. That really makes you wonder if they know something the American people don't know.
"Do you remember when George Bush used to say, freedom is on the march?" Glenn asked Tuesday on radio.
"No, it is not. Freedom is in retreat. Darkness, tyranny, and oppression are on the march. The return all over the world of men like Stalin, Mao, Mussolini, are just as active as they were a century ago."
If war does come, what we will see from North Korea will be on a whole other level.
"If war restarts with North Korea, this is warfare on a completely different scale. Violence is possible here, the kind of violence that we haven't seen since World War II. Analysts predict the capital of South Korea will be completely leveled after North Korea's counterattack," Glenn said.
"If North Korea ever falls, we're likely to see atrocities that we haven't seen since the Allied troops freed the troops in World War II."
