I grow tired of writing about world conditions each week, but those conditions threaten those of us trying to live in a peaceful democracy. Most of our world has not adopted peaceful democratic order; they live in aggressive, murderous dictatorships or bloody psychopathic theocracies (or under their control). That causes the conflict within the world's population, which has never known total peace.

What distinguishes these nations among themselves is freedom, its presence or absence. History shows us that nations without civic freedom tend to be sociopathic, fundamentally violent. I can't think of any exception to this rule. Dictatorships are responsible for culling humanity of hundreds of millions of innocent human beings over millennia. It's an evil of antediluvian heritage, with Cain being the first felon. A second fatal flaw of dictatorships is their abhorrence of Judeo-Christian virtue; they lack the necessary healthy conscience to do good and avoid evil.

So, it's the same old evil guys that keep plunging our world into bloody chaos. Christian democratic nations often identify dictators as forerunners of the Antichrist, the evilest being of all creation. From WWII we can clearly see this ancient evil in Stalin, Hitler, and their minions. Nazism was destroyed, but the USSR has morphed into the Russian Federation, with identical DNA.

Why do these demonic dictatorships persist? Their all-consuming passion is to acquire power, supreme power, Godless power. Their motto has always been "Might makes right." Today they comprise China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and all those who support them. These slave states hold tenaciously to their motto. Opposed to this tyranny are nations comprising the "Free World", including America, 32 nations of NATO, Australia, Japan, South Korea, and the Philippines. Our motto is understood to be "Peace through strength," but we have abandoned this ideal for convenience and the good life. However, no strength, no peace. The Free World is unprepared to defend against China and Russia, et al on the eve of destruction. The Free World is dying for lack of leadership (e.g. Secretary of Defense Gen. Lloyd Austin, Gen. Mark Milley former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and current Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Charles Q. Brown Jr.). Woke losers all. Then there's the lengthy roster of even more colorful Cabinet clowns and freaks.

This wordy preamble is trying to focus on America's immediate self-inflicted vulnerability as we face our global foes.
Headlines today: "Communist Cuba on Brink of Collapse..."It's America's shame that Cuba, as a communist threat, wasn't overthrown long ago. Watch now as we take no action while China, and/or Russia, savoring the sweet smell of weakness, move in, again, 90 miles away. We have made too many near fatal mistakes of judgment. This is how republics die. Elsewhere: "Judge gives illegal felon right to firearms." No nation can survive such apparent congenital stupidity while fighting enemies of "normal" sense. We cannot continue to play by the Marques of Queensberry's rules while our enemies engage Jack the Ripper tactics. Israel and Ukraine are our FRIENDS. We will need lots of friends as the coming big war evolves. Let's help them full bore. Our problem today is recognizing that the Biden regime is cancer of a treasonous nature, on a scale unique to American history causing national disintegration. The only person tough and savvy enough to bind the wounds is Donald Trump; he well knows the enemy, both foreign and domestic, though his opposition to Ukraine/Israeli assistance is almost enough for me to withhold my vote.

But the perpetual danger lies in ignoring God: 2 Chronicles 7:14 New King James Version (NKJV) If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

If we don't act, trusting God, we may as well follow Biden's white flag and kneel to the enemy. But they'll have to take my dusty M1 first.
