Ready To Fight!

How many people do you know want war over what is happening in the Ukraine; too many in my opinion. As terrible as the destruction of the Malaysian airliner was, war is not the solution. Do we have any idea how many people would be killed? All of those killed, American or not would be children of God even those we disagree with.
Twenty million died in World War I, sixty million in World War II. That was 70 years ago. The technology of weapons has advanced dramatically since then A war with Russia would not be like the Iraq War. Back in the 80’s I read estimates of over 200 million killed in a conventional non-nuclear war. Today’s weapons are even more advanced.
Would there be anything left of the Ukraine after such a war. How many children and other civilians would die? Do you really expect the Middle East to remain quiet while our forces are tied down with Russia? Would Homeland Security be able to protect us from terrorists? What would prevent a submarine from launching a nuclear missile at America? Would there be anything left of our economy after such a war or would we be longing for the good old days of the recession? Would our infrastructure survive?
We claim to be Christians but want war. That doesn’t work. War for the Christian must be the absolute last resort, impossible to avoid. Considering the consequences war should be the absolute last resort for anyone. What good is a war to save the Ukraine that destroys the Ukraine and most of Europe, the Middle East and leaves the rest of the world back in the 1800’s?
