So much has happened so fast, since I first posted this on December 14. It went viral on the I-net, and I already had eight radio interviews. It was the lead article on World Net Daily, and they really did an accurate job in reporting it.
His attack on General Grant is bizarre. For example, the Romans, Persians and Mongols all required unconditional surrender. General Gates demanded the unconditional surrender of the British at the Battle of Saratoga. General Washington demanded the unconditional surrender of the British General Cornwallis at Yorktown.
It seems that Dr. Challans just has to attack America; even if it means making things up. To this Hard Left mentality, America is evil because of its CHRISTIAN heritage.
Japan was an evil imperialistic empire that raped its way through China and Korea long before it attacked America. This man puts America on their level. The Japanese slaughtered huge civilian populations in China and the Philippines. They fought the American army to death. Okinawa was a picture of what it would be like to fight on the mainland. Even after America used nuclear weapons, THE JAPANESE MILITARY WANTED TO FIGHT TO THE LAST MAN. The army nearly had a military coup against the Emperor because he wanted to surrender to America. The Colonel is not living in reality. In my opinion, he just hates America and what it stands for, and this BLINDS him, like Major Stuckert claimed Bible believers are blinded.
With a response like this, how did this man ever get to teach American officers? How did he ever teach at the School of Advanced Military Studies? It is this thinking which is dangerous and not that of Millennial believers.)
ary base in Hawaii at a time before Hawaii was a state”
We tried not to destroy their cities, but the bombings were not precise enough to take out the industrial sites. The Japanese war industry was located in the heart of the cities. After a few weeks of fire bombing, the Kamikaze attacks stopped and the Japanese military machine was crippled. It was not finished but crippled.
Maybe the colonel would have liked to trade the Japanese cities for our soldiers. We don’t bomb their cities, and they then kill tens of thousands more Americans. Is this what the colonel is driving at?
What the colonel and his American hating mindset do not understand, is that a land invasion of Japan would have killed millions upon millions of Japanese civilians. Look what the Japanese army did to its own civilians during the battle of Okinawa; they killed those who tried to surrender!
After the war, America was kind to the Japanese and helped rebuild the nation and create a great friendship between the two nations, which has lasted since the end of the war. We even turned land back to Japan)
(If Colonel Challans was still an active officer, he should be court marshaled for this statement. Where does freedom of speech end and treason begin? How can this man teach our officers and what is he teaching them?
Colonel Challans uses the thinking of a Muslim terrorist to justify his warped view of America. I feel like crying reading this, and thinking this colonel was an American officer AND NOW TEACHES IN UNITED STATES COMMAND AND GENERAL STAFF COLLEGE. This is the Hard Left thinking at its worst.Does this represent the new thinking of the American army?
What has the American Army come to? Did anyone in the Army read the colonel’s book? Are they aware of the interviews he gave and the absolutely traitorous statements he made about America? If I am reading the colonel’s writing correctly, he is giving aid and comfort to the Islamic terrorists who are at war with America. Would any other army in the world have Colonel Challans teaching in its war college? I think not.)
(Colonel Challans is saying the 911 Islamic terrorists are justified in their thinking of attacking American civilians because the American military attacked Japanese cities! This is breathtaking. Remember, this man reviewed and allowed Major Stuckert’s thesis Strategic Implications of America Millennialism to pass and then be published by the School of Advanced Military Studies.
As I write this, I keep thinking this can’t be. A man with Dr. Challans mentality is free to teach American officers. Has the Hard Left taken over sections of our army to allow this?)
There is more to the interview, but you have seen enough to establish something is radically wrong. If you are interested in reading the rest of the interview see: Awakening Warrior, An Interview With Author Timothy Challans.
The interview ends with this:
ILJ: Timothy you’ve been very generous with your time, a final question if I may. What sort of feedback, if any, have you received from the military establishment about your ideas in this book?
Challans: “The feedback has been positive, from students and colleagues. Nobody has approached me to challenge me on anything I’ve said. I think the time is right for a moral dialogue of the sort I’m trying to carry out, one that can be critical enough to help us better understand where we’ve been, what we’re doing, and where we’re going.”
Well Colonel you are being challenged right now because it appears that your bizarre thinking has led one of your students to produce a thesis that attacks the Bible believing Christians in America. It is clear to see where Major Stuckert got his guidance to write his thesis. Major Stuckert’s thesis was not just the idea of one man, but it fits in perfectly with Colonel Challans’ jaded thinking of America and the American ethos.
Adding to this interview of Dr. Challans is a critique found on the back of his book, Awakening Warrior, Revolution in the Ethics of Warfare. See Amazon.com As mentioned before, I have not yet obtained a copy of this book to read. The critique follows:
“Challans has written a trenchant, robust, and deeply informed critique of current military morality. He attacks the heavily religious slant given to the moral instruction of warriors, the dogmatic reliance on the idea that the sole end of war is victory, and the refusal to teach even officers to think for themselves about the moral issues raised by their profession. Drawing on years of active duty and of teaching ethics at West Point and other military schools, Challans presents positive recommendations for reforming codes of military ethics and methods of teaching them to young soldiers. The book will no doubt infuriate many of the military leaders who are its chief target …”
This shows once again the anti-Christian attitude of Dr. Challans which was reflected in Majors Stuckert’s attack on PreMillennial believers and their thinking. What is also shocking is this book is mentioned in Dr. Challans’ biography from the School of Advanced Military Studies as being award winning! The quote follows: “and has written an award-winning book that is an illustration of systemic operational design within a specific context, Awakening Warrior: Revolution in the Ethics of Warfare.” This War College is well aware of this book and apparently his thinking.
The American ethos is grounded in Christian thinking. This is repugnant to the colonel and those that think like him. It seems that the PreMillennial beliefs have been targeted as one of the keystones of the American ethos. This is why Strategic Im
plications of America Millennialism was written, passed by the School of Advanced Military Studies and published by the school.
This thesis had to pass four reviewers for approval. They were Timothy Challans, Ph.D., Colonel Robert Taylor, Colonel Stefan J. Banach and Robert F. Baumann, Ph.D. The passing of this thesis was not a mere oversight.
Because this thesis was written and published and because Dr. Challans was directly involved with it, there is clear evidence that a cabal exists in the School of Advanced Military Studies against the American ethos in general and Bible believing Christians in particular.
At this point, the full magnitude of the cabal is unknown. It is also not known if this type cabal is at the other military schools. What is known is that a section of the United States Army seems to be engaged in an ideological war with the American ethos and a substantial percent of the American public.
For the integrity of the American army, this type of Hard Left anti-American and anti-Christian thinking cannot be allowed. Remember, the PreMillennial believers did not pick this fight. We are overwhelmingly loyal and patriotic Americans. The fight apparently was started by a Hard Left cabal that is now feeling bold enough to take on the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Church will still be functioning long after the American Hard Left has been reduced to nothing.
In retrospect, what is interesting is the Bible prophecy that this cabal attacked. Modern PreMillennial beliefs are not recent but began to form about 150 years ago. Long before Israel was reborn as a nation, Premillennial doctrine said it would. Long before Russia was a world power and united with Persia (Iran) which is now reality, PreMillennial preachers said it would. Long before the United Nations was even thought of, PreMillennialists believed it would happen. All these beliefs and more are coming together before our very eyes, yet Major Stuckert and Dr. Challans rail against it. If Bible prophecy was not relevant, than there would be no need for Strategic Implication of American Millennialism. But, Bible prophecy is very relevant because it is coming to pass as I write this.
Israel is once again a nation with Jerusalem the capital and Hebrew their language. There is a United Nations with the world looking for someone to lead it. Russia and Persia are linked just like the Bible states would happen when Israel was once again a nation. Armageddon lies dead ahead because the nations refuse to submit to the authority of the Bible.
What is truly ironic is that the greatest military battle ever lies just ahead at the Battle of Armageddon. When all the armies of the world, in huge numbers, gather in Israel. Then at the revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ in His awesome glory, they are instantly destroyed by the power of Jesus Christ’s words.
Zechariah 14:12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
I do hope that the American army is not at this battle. Maybe the School of Advanced Military Studies should teach the Battle of Armageddon to its officers, showing the result of unbelief and the foolishness of trying to thwart God’s word. I do hope this cabal is isolated to this school and is not a virus throughout the army. It would be terrible to think the United States Army’s Officers are being trained in thinking there is no right and wrong and to turn against Bible believing Christians. The last thing America and the American Army needs is to pick of fight with the Holy God of Israel and His people.
Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
You must stop what you are doing and read this entire document ASAP. The first two-thirds is historical and for the most part is accurate. It is technical and can be slow reading. As an historian, there are issues to be made but for the most part it is accurate.
The last third is an interpretation of Bible belief on world events. This report blames all the world evils on believers! World peace would break out if it were not for Bible believers in America. The trouble with Israel is because pre-Millennial believers support Israel.
This report is so outrageous that I called and spoke with Colonel Stefan Banack who is the Director, School of Advanced Military Studies and responsible for this study (I listed his telephone number above and recommend that you call him.) He acknowledged the study and DEFENDED it! The conversation was extremely heated between us, and he hid behind the freedom of speech to produce it. He refused to let me write an article to refute this attack on Bible believers.
He refused to tell me what this study was used for and who within the military was sent copies. I believe that it represents an official military view of Bible believers as Col Banack said there was no study or article refuting this one. This is directly from a Hard Left reprobate mindset.
THIS MUST BE CHALLENGED ON ALL LEVELS. I am contacting all the influential people that I know within our circles to sound the alarm. I am going to contact my elected officials to have this report refuted and stricken.
I am not exaggerating that after reading this report you will see that the next step for us is concentration camps to stop our evil influence on society and the world.
What I did was quote some of the most egregious statements for your immediate reading to see how dangerous this report is. Please forward this to everyone you know and encourage them to act. This is a stronghold of the Hard Left Reprobate in the military that must be challenged and rooted out.
One last thing, I told Col Banack that he would NEVER allow such a report to be written about Islam. He remained silent and never responded.
The quotes follow:
“The U.S. millennial proclivity for an unqualified military defense of Israel will continue to be a potential flashpoint of great import. Both the United States and Israel believe that Iran poses a credible existential to the state of Israel – especially if it is able to develop or procure a nuclear warhead. The Iranian Shahab-III missile system has to range to deliver a warhead to Israel. Ayatollah Khomeini declared the elimination of Israel to be a religious duty and current Iranian president Ahmadinejad cites him frequently when making similar statements. Because of the pre-millennial worldview, the U.S. will continue to adopt an adversarial approach to any country perceived as at odds with Israel. Since these conflicts are seen as deterministic and inevitable, there is little incentive to employ diplomacy or any other instrument of power other than the military in these situations.” Page 51
My comments on all the outright lies about millennialism.
We did not start one war to advance our beliefs. We did not start the Civil War or the Spanish-American War. America was dragged into WW l by the Germans. There was NO war cry in America by Bible believers. We did not start WW ll. It was the cowardly Europeans who failed to stand up to Hitler that allowed the war. Japan attacked America to advance its imperialistic goals. We were not threatening Japan.
We had nothing to do with the Cold War as it was Communistic Russia and China that wanted world control. We had nothing to do with Nazism and Communism which resulted in the death of over 100 million people.
Iraq and Iran are the products of Islam. They are the aggressors and not America led by Bible believing Christians. Iran wants to obtain nuclear weapons to destroy Israel and establish an Islamic caliphate from Morocco to India.
Israel is NOT the source of Islamic terrorism. Israel has nothing to do with Islamic Pakistan fighting with India. It has nothing to do with Muslims slaughtering all the people in the Sudan. It has nothing to do with the Muslims killing the Christians in Nigeria and Indonesia. It has nothing to do with all the terror in Somalia. It has nothing to do with the Muslim terrorists in the Philippines. It had nothing to do with Iraq starting the Gulf War.
Islam at its core is a violent religion that is now playing out on the world stage. The Muslim’s fighting with Israel fits a pattern throughout the world.
Right now the world’s big problems are both the Hard Left reprobates who are in charge of all Western nations including the United States and the Muslims who follow Islam. The problem is not Bible believing Christians. We are the solution to this sin cursed world, that will only be cured at the glorious Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
