To get there, we have to go back to 2016. The last year of Obama’s ruling.

In an interview with The Atlantic, while speaking with Jeffrey Goldberg, Obama enunciated that the Americans are not willing to go to war in Ukraine. Or, simply put, Ukraine was not worthy of the American’s effort to kill and die for. There was simply nothing interesting for us there, according to his words.
And the American people understand this. According to the AP, the vast, vast majority of Americans oppose war with Russia.

To his credit, Obama called out the duplicity of the neocon and neoliberal warmongers later on in the aforementioned interview:
“But what if Putin were threatening to move against, say, Moldova—another vulnerable post-Soviet state? Wouldn’t it be helpful for Putin to believe that Obama might get angry and irrational about that?
“There is no evidence in modern American foreign policy that that’s how people respond. People respond based on what their imperatives are, and if it’s really important to somebody, and it’s not that important to us, they know that, and we know that,” he said. “There are ways to deter, but it requires you to be very clear ahead of time about what is worth going to war for and what is not. Now, if there is somebody in this town that would claim that we would consider going to war with Russia over Crimea and eastern Ukraine, they should speak up and be very clear about it. The idea that talking tough or engaging in some military action that is tangential to that particular area is somehow going to influence the decision making of Russia or China is contrary to all the evidence we have seen over the last 50 years.”
So, what has changed 6 years after?
I guess, nothing.
And probably, a Democrat named Barack Obama was right.
