The issue here is that Cargill, Agribusiness, Monsanto and other bloated and destructive corporations have a vested interest in the Ukraine, sponsored by the US government,
wanting to rub Putin's nose in their "Manifest Destiny".
Obama is a tool of the military industrial complex and advocate for the corporate state,
positions of which he must maintain if he is to stay alive. Remember what was done to MLK.
Putin, not to be trusted, is being made a hero to the Russian people as he severs ties to the Ukraine, adopting a victim status, rationalizing his intervention, though as he has stated, thinks that the dissolution of the USSR "was a disaster". Putin is another Soviet apparatchik.
