Damascus Countdown: Novel Depicts Iran Showdown

Ad Feedback

Author Joel Rosenberg has a knack for writing fiction that is chillingly close to reality, and he's done it again in Damascus Countdown, the third and final installment of his Twelfth Imam series.

Rosenberg's novels are entertaining, but he also has a track record of being quite prophetic in his fiction.

In Damascus Countdown, Israel has successfully launched a first strike on Iran, taking out all of their nuclear sites and six of their nuclear warheads. The result prompts the Twelfth Imam to order a full-scale retaliation.

The fictional U.S. President William Jackson threatens to support a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning the Jewish state for unprovoked and unwarranted acts of aggression.

How close is this fictional account to a real-world scenario? Rosenberg was on "The 700 Club," Thursday, March 7, to talk about his latest book and just how possible it is that things can play out in similar fashion in reality.
