Behold, a pale horse

"And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. " Revelations 6:7-8 

I'm thinking tonight of the Ukraine Russia War -- once again, history is "galloping riderless across the landscape" with no direction and no control. The possibility of nuclear war has reared its ugly head, and we don't know whether it will happen or not.   
With Ukraine's recent success in pushing back Russian occupation, Putin seems terrified that Ukraine is winning. So he is doubling down - mobilizing more Russian soldiers, setting up sham referenda to create a phony pretext to claim that Occupied Ukraine belongs to Russia, and threatening a nuclear response if the Ukraine military continues fighting to liberate this so-called "Russian" territory. I expect Putin also thinks he can frighten Europe and NATO into forcing Ukraine to agree to a ceasefire. 
NATO and European leaders are having none of it.
Here is the bottom line: And this is terrible. When this war is over, it will take years to recover.
