Putin’s Holy War 31-01-2015
Putin’s Holy War
As much as all civilized people hate war, Russian President Vladimir Putin is agitating for conflict not just against Ukraine, but with the West as well. The time has come for the West to put up the defenses – starting with helping Ukraine to build a first-rate military. Appeasing Russian aggression, as the West has done in Chechnya, Georgia, Moldova and now Ukraine, has only encouraged more violence from Putin.
Pavel Felgenhauer, an independent military analyst based in Russia, has it right when he told the Kyiv Post: “Ukraine is seen by Russia and the media from the imperial capital as important, but not as important as the clash with the West.” And then, the optimistic note from Felgenhauer: “A head-on clash with the West will destroy Russia in its present form.”
Perhaps getting rid of Russia in its present form – a murderous Putin kleptocracy – and reconstituting it as an open and liberal democracy that respects elections and human rights is the best consequence that could happen from Putin’s suicide mission.
The West, as well, needs to rethink its security structures. When one nation, such as the leftist newly elected government in Greece, can block European Union sanctions, there is something wrong with the way the 28-nation bloc is governed. When Russia, an undeclared state sponsor of terrorism, can block any United Nations action, something is wrong with the global security structure.
The trouble is that the West continues to move too slowly and cautiously in responding to the Russian threat. The EU will not consider new sanctions until Feb. 12. Some misguided commentators even suggest Ukraine should surrender to whatever Putin wants – as if that will appease him.
What is not well appreciated in the West yet is that Putin has unleashed so many weapons and so much hatred against America, Europe and Ukraine that the Kremlin dictator may not even be able to deliver a peace agreement if he wanted to, which he doesn’t.
Putin is backing immoral people in the separatist strongholds. Terror and war crimes are the only definitions that fit after watching their own videos of the way they kill, torture and abuse Ukrainian soldiers taken prisoner of war.
Putin’s propaganda – and that of the Moscow Orthodox Church which he controls – is to portray the West as a decadent place set to destroy Russia. Most of his propaganda is, of course, untrue. It’s aimed, rather, at propping up his domestic support so he can remain ruler for life.
According to Bible Prophecy the Leader of Russia at the time of the End is called "Gog" ie. a chief one a strong and authoratarian ruler.
Putin with his war like tones is very much fitting this description as the above article highlights. Gog will develop a close relationship with the EU whereby Gog will become a "guard" unto the EU.
Gog is also spoken of militarily as the "King of the North". Together the Bible says that Gog and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days.
Yet again we see in Todays News Headlines words that show how the Nations are fulfilling the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible.
