Further observations of the Russian's intent to drive a stake in the heart of the Ukranian identity in such cruel fashion speaks to a complexity of issues that possibly the rest of the world does not comprehend; for consider, even as the invasion evokes such images of evil intensity, there are those who are not all that revulsed by the extreme barbary of ravaging the innocents, not unlike the similar tacitcs that the fascist Waffen SS accomplished as chronicled in a work called the 'Black March;' of such atrocities there are no lack of witnesses detailing teh most heinous actions ever perpetrated on humanity. But why?
History details that there is no lack of evil intensity when there is a lack of social restraints and unrestrained elements of mankind are released to wreak havoc of unprecedented levels of criminality and the more reserved sectors of 'normal' society are exposed to these things, but are frozen in a moral dilemma of wanting it to stop, but not having the visceral impulse to be the agent implementing the moral restraint themselves.
In ancient times, it was the religious war that was imposed upon the unsuspecting masses; crimes in the name of deity (even in the blasphemy of the Savior) force mass populations to flee for safety, if not freedom, to escape the tyranny that enslaved millions, even billions: even than, just as many were put to death.
With the current state of religious apostasy, semi-religious fascism and later secular communism became the ideologies by which humanity was subjected to tyrannical ambitions of empire, all of which indicates the same evil model of global conflict that permeated the ancient times as it does today.
Only when one realizes that Christianity, and the root basis of its faith in Judaism, are targeted in these modern times as they were in history, does one get the realization that these issues have been the central struggle of humanity from the beginning.
Watch Russia; they will not stop until they reach critical mass (nuclear implications intended), in Israel; then followed by others, including China, all of which have seperate destinies in Israel. All of which because fascism and communism (Marxism) are unable to fully replace the mentality of how to rule under the rule of law, failing to recognize the source of it all. The Children of Israel are the inheritors of it all when they come to the fulfillment of that law; only a remnant of those who believed in the Author of that rule will remain as well.
