Dr Roberts is the ex-assistant secretary to the US Treasury. He argues that Govts of all persuasions have used wars not to protect their citizens but to subjugate them and steal resources from other nations.

Given the Patriot Act initiated by George Bush, the National Defence Authorisation Act initiated by Obama, the illegal invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Libya, Vietnam, etc how have these wars made the people of this planet more free and democratic ? Is war inevitable just because we are too stupid and spineless to question authority ?

There is an element of true in what you say. But the world was created with wars. So there has been no change, and no particular race are any more war mongering than the other.
Disputes are inevitable, that is why we have the UN. When all else fails we have war. How long is the world going to persist with chit chat with N Korea, it is obviously not working.

While kids still have punch-ups in the school playground, adults will continue to fight, & we will have wars.

mark/13..6"Many will come..in My name, ..saying, 'I am He!' and will mislead many. 7"When you hear of wars and rumors of wars,..

do not be frightened;..those things/
must take place;
but that is not yet...the end.

8"For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will also be famines.

These things are merely the beginning..of birth pangs.[QUICKENING]

This is that good understanding of the times which all should RESPECT/et,EL..thence to infer what Israel ought to do.

Our Saviour cautions his disciples to stand on their guard against false teachers...[WORKS/WURKS]..And he foretells wars and great commotions among nations.*[NOT/THE LIVING]..From the time that the Jews.rejected Christ,[SALOME/BRINGER]and he left their house desolate,..the s*word never departed from them.

See what comes..of refusing the//LOVE/LIGHT/LOGIC/LIFE.
Those who will not..CHOSE/TO..hear..the messengers of peace, shall be made to hear the messengers of war...

BUT/KNOW..LOVE BEGETS/PEACE..[where the heart is fixed,
trusting in God,..it is kept in peace,..and is not afraid.

YET/IF..It is against the mind/of Christ,[will/love..FOR OTHER]..
that his people..should have troubled hearts,..even in troublous times...[When we looked forward..to the eternity of misery that is before the obstinate refusers of Christ-love]..and/by..his gospel,...we may truly say,..The greatest earthly judgments..are but the beginning of hells-sorrows.

It is comforting..that some shall endure even to the end...0ur Lord foretells the preaching of the gospel in all the world...The end of the world shall not be till the gospel has done its work.[love/one\and/other...

Christ foretells the ruin..coming upon the people of the news;
and what he said here,...would be of use to his disciples, for their conduct..and for their comfort...[If God opens a door]...of escape, we ought..to make our escape,..

Trust runner to be a warmonger. I wouldnt expect anything less from a christian extremist.

I bet even as we speak there are people who rule thinking about ways they can "remove" some of the worlds excessive population. War has always been their genocide of choice and I am sure it is well in the running this time.
China, Russia/Ukraine, The middle East, Iran. All likely places our "leaders" can use as "enemies out to destroy our way of life" and justify another in a long line of wars and killing.
With the new drones and robosoldiers, total surveillance and spying, and the massive concentration of wealth and control we are all in line for subjugation, deprivation, slavery and death.
Unless we stand up!

FIGHT WAR NOT WARS!
