The Game of Wolves

We don’t know all the reasons why Russia invaded Ukraine, but we can guess at some of them. Fear of NATO is certainly part of the picture, but only part. The largest element is greed.

Money and power drive our wars, and this one is no different. If it was just about stopping Ukraine from joining NATO, Russia would have used a different strategy. But, since Putin has bigger ambitions and perceives the West to be weak, he chose the more traditional path to empire.

Unfortunately, it looks like this is exactly what some in the West wanted him to do.

The Stories That Send Us To War

I was not expecting Russia to invade Ukraine like this, but I had not been listening to the stories that the Russians were telling each other. Nor did I hear what Kremlin advisors were telling Putin.

These stories are what send us to war. Every war that America has ever fought, started with a story, and too many of them had little connection with reality. Look closely at other wars, and you’ll see that they too started with a story.

Worse, we have taken up story telling in our churches, without checking whether they are true.

Afghanistan Part Two – The Coming War

The way the US handled the fall of Kabul to the Taliban demonstrated a shocking level of weakness, incompetence and cowardice that has sent shock waves through the halls of power throughout the world. America’s enemies now see an opportunity to tear at the carcass of a fallen empire. America’s allies no longer view the US as dependable.

This means war.

Over the coming months and years, America’s power will be challenged more and more as she demonstrates fearful weakness in the face of aggression. Then, one day, ‘aggression’ will turn into world war.

With Blood On Our Hands

The amount of evil flowing from the centers of power is almost unimaginable. Washington, London, Berlin, Paris, Ankara, Beijing… they are all engaged the most vile game of power imaginable. The death of hundreds of millions means nothing to them. Their only morality is power, and getting more of it is worth any cost.

Many have already paid the price, and the butcher’s bill is about to get even bigger as America goads Ukraine into war and then throws Israel and the Middle East into the arms of Iran.

The amount of blood on our hands, is beyond comprehension.

2020 WON

Worst. Year. Ever.

I mean, it wasn’t as bad as the beginning of World War I or II. Or, the year when the Spanish Flu took off. Or, The Black Death. Or, The Plague of Justinian. Or… (Okay, so maybe it wasn’t the worst EVER) But, it’s the worst in MY lifetime. And, unless you’re older than my 50-something years, it’s the worst in your lifetime too.

The irony is that this year was bad for other reasons than the China Virus. All that the China Virus did was to reveal the mental viruses running around, along with how stupid and corrupt our governments were.
