Cold War Redux?

The Who once sang something about "the new boss, same as the old boss." Maybe now it should be "the new war, same as the old war?"

Check out this fairly cogent analysis of the way things are once again racheting up between Russia and the U.S. I suppose we could throw in the NATO Alliance nations, but it's hard to tell whether they'll be in total unison or not these days.

I'll withhold comment for the time being. This has so many potential scenarios to it. From a theological level, I know things must progress to set the stage for certain events. Read Ezekiel 38 and 39 for starters. On a secular geopolitical level, I concur with much of what the article has to say in terms of the "tripwires" being set, and it's pretty predictable. I also can see the arguments on both sides of this fence, including that of Russia, who raises the issue of NATO once promising not to expand to Russia's borders. NATO did it anyway.

And caught in the middle are all the littler countries who seem to have no say over themselves or their own territory. And such is life under this sun. It has been for thousands of years. This earth will not know final peace until the King of King returns and puts all power and authority under His feet.
