I find it alarming (but not surprising) that China and Russia are in favor of a long-time, oppressive dictatorship. As a side note, I appreciate the freedom in this country that allows me to say that without fear of government reprisal. This is what freedom-of-speech is about. The founding fathers championed freedom-of-speech precisely to protect this kind of political speech. I don't believe it was to protect pornography and the like.

On a more spiritual note, IMHO these world conditions are signs of the times. If we look at what is happening around the world, war, disaster, and repression seem to be escalating. There are troubles everywhere we look. Within, without, it's the same.

Good will prevail, but it won't be till after serious world upheaval. But overall, I think there is cause for optimism. These are exciting times if the spread of the gospel is something that is important to you. The Second Coming is around the corner (figuratively speaking). I have no idea when, but I, for one, look forward to it. I look forward to peace.

Shooting down a jet is never an accident. Especially considering the relatively non-hostile relations between Turkey and Syria.

I applaud Turkey for not over-reacting to Syria's attack. Though I wonder how much longer the world will tolerate Syria's behavior.
