Tensions between the U.S. and Russia have continued to rise, and during a recent nationally-televised interview Russian president Vladimir Putin openly warned about the possibility of a “Third World War”…
Vladimir Putin has accused the United States of violating the nuclear balance and warned against a “Third World War” during an annual televised call-in show.
Responding to a worried viewer, Mr Putin called for new arms control negotiations and quoted Albert Einstein’s aphorism that “World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones”.
But he also said Russia had developed weapons to overcome US missile defence after Washington left the Soviet-era anti-ballistic missile treaty in 2002.
Most Americans don’t realize this, but Russia has been modernizing their strategic nuclear forces and the United States has not been doing so.
We definitely do not want a war with Russia, and let us pray that it is put off for as long as possible.

Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them. That is okay. I am a truthseeker. I just call it like I see it. If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended. I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues.
One of the things that you should know about me is that I put a very high priority on love. Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, hopefully I am doing it with a loving heart. If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another.
The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place. It sure could use a lot more love.
Another thing that you should know about me is that I am a Christian. And I am one of those Christians that actually believes the Bible, and there are a lot of people out there that don’t like people like that.
I believe that God loves us very much and that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to die on the cross for our sins.
