I think America is not found in the last days prophecy because we arent around then. at the very least we are reduced to taking care of what little remains of our nation and are of no importance on the world stage. I think the world has to be post-america for the AC to rise and to rule. America is too much of a deturant to a one world government and one leader for the whole world. I think Russia and China could easily be the ones to take us out. An EMP would knock out our defences and make an attack that much deadlier. As for our military aboard helping us with no clear chain of command, the pres maybe dead and it wouldnt be clear who in the "succession list" is still alive, it would be hard to mount an attack.
The big question is when all this happens what survives here in america??? Does the remanent to to God??? Are we any longer able to fuction on the world stage or are we simply on our own??? It may be the North American wasteland will be of no value to the AC and he will not bother with it. We may not be worth the time and effert to help. Just let the chips fall where they may.
with our youth so unable to funtion without electronics and without uncle sam holding their hands we would face quite a challenge to survive. are youth have been taught at schools to be dependent on the government and have not been taught how to survive on there own that they will be lost without government and technology. everything is done for them now with the technology we have that they aren't able to do anything. (it is surprising they aren't still diapered given how lazy many of them are and how much they rely on everyone else in society to do things for them.)
Another factor you might think about is Yellowstone. If that thing goes off during or after a attack we would be in a whole heap o' trouble. that, the EMP and the nuking of us may just make the US worthless to the world so even if a few americans survive they aren't worth the trouble it would be to get to them, start up electricity, and moniter them. He may just leave them to die. He may very well feel "if they are going to die then let them do it and decrease the surplus population". the PTB do think the world is OVERpopulated. Some want us down to 500 million.
