It sounds like you see a religion angle there but it’s not clear what it is.

This doesn’t mean there isn’t a religious angle. You may just care to note which troops exactlyy Putin sent into Georgia…

I’ll sum up what I said before.

Heneghan’s claim that the Russian Orthodox Church has resumed its pre-communism role there is seriously flawed. Seventy-five years, hundreds of torched churches, ten-million plus murdered by followers of the same violently secular ideology that is puffing out its chest today. Putin’s storm troopers threatening destruction in Georgia if they don’t cede their borders are the same thugs who extinguished through murder and arson the presence of Christianity in Russia.

It is making a comeback, but Dreher’s claim that Russia “has been” Christian for 1,000 years turns a blind eye to 3/4ths of a century of the persecution of individuals’ beliefs.

Those truly interested in being educated on the subject should read The Forgotten: Catholics of the Soviet Empire from Lenin Through Stalin, by Fr. Christopher Lawrence Zugger.

What *is* important is that, IRRESPECTIVE of how this conflict is perceived by any of the politicians, Georgia, the United States and the Israel are iterations of the “king of the South”; and Russia, South Ossetia, Syria and Iran are iterations of the “king of the North” in the fractal Prophecies of Daniel 11:40-45. That is, Georgia’s attack upon South Ossetia and Russia’s retaliation consist of a small-scale macro-iteration of Daniel 11:40.

But this is only the beginning.

It is the nature of fractal Prophecies to iterate.
