Summary: The United States, along with the nations of Europe, Great Britain foremost, developed a global market which has worked against Yehuveh by exploiting and enslaving the common people. For the attitudes and actions they have here manifested, they sealed their doom and  for this course of action they will be removed. Study the notes and text of Ezekiel 26.
Scriptural Reference: Ezekiel 26:1-3.

“And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first day of the month, that the word of Yehuveh came unto me, saying, . . . Behold, I am against thee, O Tyrus, and will cause many nations to come up against thee, as the sea causeth his waves to come up.”

History and Related Events
: When no nation or city by the name of Tyre now exists, how are we to apply this prophecy? According to In Search of . . . the Origin of Nations, page 66, “When the modern Babylon/Tyre/United States of Europe invades the Middle East, ‘these shall escape out of his hand even Edom and Moab and the chief of the children of Ammon.’ Daniel 11:41.” On p. 71 is added: “Tyre [southern Italians, symbolic also of the U.S. of Europe] . . . the soon-coming National European Socialist Empire!” P. 89 adds: “. . . the “King of the North” (a German-led United Europe — modern Babylon or Tyre) . . .” P. 171 repeats: “Europe (Tyre or Babylon). . . . ‘a strong [United] Europe.’” Then on p. 174, the author states: “It appears that initially Russia will be firm allies with German-led Europe (Ezekiel 21:13) which will supply Russia with the technology, expertise and finances she requires to modernize, whilst Russia will supply Europe with the raw materials which would be needed for their future awesome war machine. Ezekiel equates Babylon/Chaldea with Tyre; we note that the peoples of Tyre are in southern Italy and Sicily today . . . but symbolically it applies to the coming tremendously prosperous National European Socialist Empire. God warns the soon-to-arise modern Babylon/Chaldea/Tyre/Europe ‘I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations.’ Ezekiel 28:7.”
        While I respect this point of view, events of this day indicate a larger scope.
“The World Trade Center officially opens in New York City with a ribbon-cutting ceremony” on this date! Three times in this and the following chapter, Ezekiel speaks specifically of the twin towers and their demise: “And they shall destroy the walls of Tyrus, and break down her towers: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rock.” “And he shall set engines of war against thy walls, and with his axes he shall break down thy towers.” “The men of Arvad with thine army were upon thy walls round about, and the Gammadims were in thy towers: they hanged their shields upon thy walls round about; they have made thy beauty perfect.” Isaiah 30:25 also speaks of “the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.” Thus, from Scriptures it appears that Tyre is symbol of the World Trade Organization, which in spite of its name, is not global. Though trading with nations around the world, the World Trade Organization is predominately a western entity,  and Yehuveh can, therefore, “cause many nations to come up against thee,” and “it shall become a spoil to the nations.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1973#April; Ezekiel 26:4, 9; 27:11; 26:3, 5.
