Speculations - Religious or Secularist - Russian's Greater Fear of NATO Entrapment Will Force Issue of Expanding Russian Influences Into Deeper Conflict

Reader comment on item: Victory – An Obsolete Concept?
in response to reader comment: Ukrainian Saga Nowhere Near Resolution Yet - Russian Losses Do Not Reflect Any Approach to Peace - Let Alone Victory

We read of the Roman Catholic Papacy visiting Kazakhstan and pontificating upon how close the third World War is to a reality, that from a religious perspective, makes sense from a Scripturally based understanding; yet its perpetrators are not really approaching this from a religious perspective, are they now.
What is really on the horizon is the more likely scenario of a paranoid delusion that if Russia is to survive in this out-of-control globalized panic of global warming, strategic steps are required, especially with the other actors that have similar world wide dominance on their minds; allegiances, made to be broken later, are arranged just in case one of them bites off more than they can abosorb. There is no other resort for them.
In the final analysis, going nuclear is the darkened mind option and it is already openly threatened as if it might change anyone's mind that peace is a better alternative. Peace of mind is not being discussed, is it?
We are in a wait and see situation now - who's paranoia is next to be seen?
