US Soldier Massacres Afghan Civilians

March 11, 2012 (Day 71, Strait):  A US soldier went on a murderous rampage early this morning in Afghanistan and killed at least 16 civilians, mostly women and children.  He walked off a US base in Panjwai district outside Kandahar and entered three homes and killed the occupants.   In the village of Balandi, he killed all 11 members of Samad Khan's family, including women and children.  After the massacre, the US soldier returned to his base and surrendered.  He was alleged to be a sergeant from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington who was assigned to support a special operations unit.

The birthplace of the Taliban was just north of Panjwai district.  The district has been an active Taliban base for attacking US forces in the area.

Weather Image of Horseman

Later in the day, the image of a horseman appeared on the satellite weather picture over the US.  The horseman was crossing the Mississippi, which symbolizes crossing the Jordan.  The lone horseman with the hat of a cavalryman corresponded to the US soldier who massacred Afghan civilians.  The horseman symbolizes an attack by a mounted cavalry raiding band.  The horseman corresponds to the horsemen of the Apocalypse that symbolize historical periods of divine Judgment.


The massacre of Afghan civilians by the US soldier was inspired by Satan, the murderer (Jn 8:44).  It symbolizes the Evil King destroying the Prostitute of Babylon.  This will happen in the Tribulation (Rev 17:16), and it is happening now in Syria.
