I p 272 (cVIII-17)
At a point the Antichrist's forces become complacent from so many
frequent and rapid conquests. They will begin to lose some battles
and see their power is not forever.
The Antichrist will have taken over a large part of the world and will
become complacent. "Three brothers", the "alliance of the pole", i.e.
North America, Europe, and Russia, will trouble the Antichrist and
his world will tremble. France will be united with the alliance in
spirit, if not actually physically, because the country will weakened
seriously from the Antichrist's degradations.
