Will this be part of what God uses to put a hook in Russia's jaw and drag it into the Middle East conflict between good and evil?

This horrible event along with 9/11 sure makes one wonder why
God is AWOl...

GOD IS *NOT* AWOL AT ALL.

But, He does, at times, have to pull back His protection and allow satan's compulstions to rob, kill and destroy to have sway in order for

HUMANS

to LEARN, given their thickheadedness,

that life apart from God

is and only results in

DESTRUCTION AND DEATH.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
GOD is not AWOL and HE is sad. Man is inherently evil. From the beginning of time remember the tree of good and evil. If Adam and Eve had not eaten the apple, we would be flocking around watching the animals and eating fruit off of the trees without a care in the world. See below verse...

Genesis 6
5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.

Evil roams the earth looking for a chance to temp one and all. This is where your free will comes into play as the choices you make. In a very simplistic manner we could say we all chose everyday weather we are going to eat the apple or not. See below how the devil roams. This is his earth till Jesus comes back.

Job 1
7 The LORD said to Satan, "From where do you come?" Then Satan answered the LORD and said, "From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it."


1 Peter 5
8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

GODS Blessing to YOU
