Ukraine, EU & U.S.: Enrich Russia for Oil or Prepare for World War III

Civil-War-Ukraine        After Russia’s masked secret service continued to overtake government buildings in towns on Ukraine’s eastern border, national leaders in Kiev finally had enough! Acting President Oleksander Turchinov labeled the intruders terrorists, saying if they don’t leave state buildings this evening, his army will oust them.

And ah, surprise! Russia blames the United States and Europe for the whole thing. Reuters reports today:  “Russia’s foreign ministry called the planned military operation a ‘criminal order’ and said the West should bring its allies in Ukraine’s government under control.  It is now the West’s responsibility to prevent civil war in Ukraine,” the ministry said in a statement.

Turchinov was reacting to the murder of a Ukrainian security officer and the wounding of five others yesterday.  But Russian news agency makes the unproven claim that a ‘pro-Moscow activist’ was also killed in clashes.  In one city, Russian militants have built road blocks with rubber tires to secure control.

But why––after taking Crimea without Ukrainian resistance––is Russia still pushing to start a civil war in Ukraine.?  Is it more than that oppressor’s obvious desire to re-establish rule of the Soviet Union? But what? Here are some reasons:

1)  This blog has already established that native Russians are leaving that country in record numbers, and that Putin seeks to supplement that population lost.  Crimea gave him thousands, but he wants all of Ukraine for millions.

2)  Even more so, Russia’s wealth and income is in oil and gas and little else. Even Putin knows the days of that type of energy are numbered.  So Putin is soaking Ukraine and the rest of Europe for all the money he can get.

3)   Moreover, Putin knows that the world is shaken by Global Warming, and that his type of carbon polluting oil-based wealth must end.  New York Times commentator, Thomas Friedman, strongly hopes that Putin does cut off energy pipping through Ukraine into Europe. Friedman writes:

“A Putin embargo today would be even more valuable because it would happen at a time when the solar, wind, Hands-off-Ukrainenatural gas and energy efficiency industries are all poised to take off and scale. So Vladimir, do us all a favor, get crazy, shut off the oil and gas to Ukraine and, even better, to all of Europe. Embargo! You’ll have a great day, and the rest of the planet will have a great century.”

Admitting that an embargo would be disruptive in the short term, Friedman cites the Arab oil embargo in 1973, which “led to the first auto mileage standards in America and propelled the solar, wind and energy efficiency industries.” If indeed the world turns to alternative energies, where does that leave Russia?

4)  Putin knows that Europe doesn’t want war. He wretches in jealous that Germany has organized Western Europe without firing a shot, and has prospered while doing so. China has pretty much done the same with its vast territories. The only way he figures he can catch up with them, and the United States, is by war!

Indeed he joins Syria in this desire for war.  He fermented it in Crimea and continues now in Ukraine.  He planned this for years, lulling the West to sleep, as he planted provocateurs to spread propaganda, along with deceptive media outlets.

Christians in Ukraine are praying in front of buildings Russia’s goons have seized, and believers around the world must join them to prevent this initiation of World War III. As Christian non-fiction prophecy books celebrate, prayer can stop the imaginations of evil men: “This is the portion of a wicked man with God, and the heritage of oppressors, which they shall receive of the Almighty (Job 27: 13).”
