Perilous times indeed

Much of what is carried by the news media about the Russian invasion of Ukraine is propaganda controlled by either side, or by the military industrial complex and their puppets who sadistically want war for profit. The rhetoric spewed from the mouths of leaders is far more telling about the perilous times in which we live. Russian President Vladimir Putin has hinted at the use of nuclear weapons. Reuters reports that former Russian President and now Russia’s Security Council Deputy Secretary Dmitry Medvedev said the US has stoked “disgusting” Russophobia and that “Russia has the might to put all our brash enemies in their place.” This is very similar to how the Soviets ran their mouths during the Cold War.

MEMRI TV carried a January 14 interview of Russian Duma member Yevgeny Alexeyvich Fyodorov saying that the US thinks Putin is bluffing when he makes tough statements. He said, “Until there is a physical demonstration of (Moscow’s) determination, America will perceive the positions of Russia and (Putin) as a bluff. So they need a demonstration. The most convincing demonstration would be the physical destruction of America’s defense Department facilities…we could demonstratively strike the test range in Nevada with a ballistic missile…If we create risks for US territory, say, a risk of 10,000 casualties, from a strike of even a weak missile, then the US will perceive this as a threat of 10 million casualties.” He said there would be no retaliation strike because of America’s weak mentality.

Putin further said during a televised video conference that he will conduct a cleansing of Russian enemies within the country. He said, “Any people, and particularly the Russian people, will always be able to tell apart the patriots from the scum and traitors and spit them out like a midge that accidentally flew into their mouths. I am convinced that this natural and necessary self-cleansing of society will only strengthen our country, our solidarity, cohesion and readiness to meet any challenge.” The words of Russia’s leadership are chilling reminders of Soviet-era communists, when communism was responsible for the deaths of over 100 million people during the 20th Century. They have an appetite for death.

Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy Wednesday appealed to the US Congress for more aid to fight off the Russians who he labeled terrorists. He said, “This is a terror that Europe has not seen, has not seen for 80 years and we are asking for a reply, for an answer to this terror from the whole world.” He received a standing ovation and a commitment from Joe Biden to send $14 billion to Ukraine in aid and arms, calling Putin a “war criminal.” Given the rhetoric of the leaders and the aggression of Soviet era communists, escalation of this war is unfortunately inevitable. People will push for more American involvement and US leadership is not equipped to navigate these rough seas.  2 Timothy 3:1 says, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” Indeed, Pray and fast for peace. Evil minions are working hard toward destruction.
