War is the inevitable karmic reaction of anger, lust, greed, and jealousy.

Russia’s actions are atrocious but NATO and America is also to blame, Gorbachev was promised that NATO would not expand eastward yet now Ukraine is wanting to join NATO, just like in the buildup to world war 1 there were many factors i.e. colonialism, the wars in the Balkans, militarism, etc. yet some would say WW1 explicitly started when Germany invaded Belgium in 1914

Eleazar: Gorbachev was promised that NATO would not expand eastward yet now Ukraine is wanting to join NATO

Brotha, there is a difference between countries, who are already NATO members, using that alliance and support of other NATO members in order to expand their territories eastward vs new countries east of NATO wanting to join.

And why did they want to join? Because of Russian aggression.

The problem is that Ukraine doesn't owe Gorbachev anything. Soverign nations should be able to decide their own destiny, including their alliances. Imagine if the bank told your parents "We'll give you a home loan so you can buy a house for your family but your children won't be allowed to go to college." That would be ridiculous.

The reality is that most countries do not have completely clean hands. Militaries aren't always used for defense and excuses are often made for countries to go on offense. The US's excuse is a sort of global policing and while this frustrates US citizens who are paying for it, it is also true that America is asked for its assistance by other countries.

I don't think the Ukraine situation is a WWIII type of situation. I think Russia is trying to expand it's taxable territory because all those incompetent soldiers they have still cost money and the Russian economy is constantly hijacked in order to support the lavish lifestyles of its oligarchs. This whole thing was a disaster for them and as soon as Europe really starts converting over to Solar and Wind en masse, Russia will become a place of poverty.

I don't know about karmic reactions to lust and greed. Perhaps. I think most wars are about survival. What they see as threats to their survival may be different from what others see. But I think most wars are fought over resources and therefore land. Any group of people that has experienced scarcity (such as famine or drought) is a threat for reacting to that situation by becoming more aggressive. This is a fear-based response that can lead to greed and hording. Imbalances like this... when the scale goes too far in one direction are often followed by the scales going in the other extreme until the experience of both extremes lead them to somewhere in the middle.
