This being my first comment on this site, I want to thank Dr. Brown for his contribution. Also, I wish to express how saddened I am at the level of vitriol in the comments. In my own studies of dictators, I have come to the conclusion that the root cause of their crimes is pride. Pride is one of the Seven Deadly Sins, and the rest of them flow from pride. I have long been monitoring how (despicably) tied the Russian Orthodox church is to Putin. Soldiers on the ground in the Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk were very religious in their efforts to conquer Ukraine. But I think Putin cares little for the Bible and far more for his own glory and greed. At most, he dismisses his crimes as being forgiven by his works for (his version of) God. Hopefully soon "Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall." (Proverbs 1:8). Perhaps Putin will be overthrown. It's very sad that this would probably take far more bloodshed, and there would be little guarantee of a better world thereafter.

Yes Dr Brown, you did miss a theory: This is a turf war between the globalists. To my surprise I recently discovered that Putin is one of Klaus Schwab's "Young Global Leaders". Putin has gone rogue and so Klaus (and by extension the Western leaders) is trying to bring him to heel. And all these years I thought James Bond was fiction!

It was only a matter of time until you came around to defending Vladimir Putin, whose murderous and unprovoked invasion has involved intentionally shelling schools, hospitals, and maternity wards, butchering thousands of innocent men, women, and children in the process. It might not have felt easy for you, but Donald Trump did it so maybe you didn't feel you had a choice. You are disgusting.

One only needs to read the O.T. to see just how many bloody wars existed in Israel's History. MT. 24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

“Christian Nationalism,” here or in the Ukraine, leads to chaos, suffering, and death.
