Rational on the International

I really don't know where to begin.  It has been brought to my attention that there is a bunch of messy predicaments going around.

It is hard to take that groups of individuals are being persecuted for their faith in the Middle East.  Mentions of beheadings and crucifixions disturb me deeply.  I find myself wondering why all this genocide is going on?

Hate is a gruesome thing to feel and hold onto that leads to acts of violence depending on who the individual it manifests within over time.  It eats away and rots you to the core until a transformation has occurred.  And it is not a good transformation.  Neither is power lust which has sprouted its ugly head in Russia.

Russia has been giving weaponry to India.  They forked over $13.6 out of $29.7 billion dollars of weapons to India between 2013-2014.  The United States of America only sent under $2 billion during that same time frame.  Ever since 9/11, the U.S. has exported more weaponry to India.

It is also known that China has a more developed defense industry than India.  China imported technology and supplies from Russia in the 1980s and 1990s until they could manufacture their own.

It seems that Russia is looking for allies, and sides are being drawn.

I just keep thinking a lot of planning is going on within nations.  They are building their forts and stock loads, trying to emerge as the most dominant country, or on the side that has become the most powerful in the world.  And at whose expense- I say ours.
