In Obama's "Complicated" World Mass Murder Is Not As Important As Money

Question: who is the mass murderer in this picture? At least the fellow on the left knows what he's doing when he hands out deadly air-defense weapons to a bunch of pirates. The fellow on the right also knows what he's doing when the world is crumbling into crises—he's golfing and fundraising, as if everything is copacetic. And that is a big reason the American people increasingly despise Barack Obama. 
Nope, nobody is going to drone-strike Vladimir Putin just because he murdered almost 300 people, including 85 children. That would be uncivilized. And you know, could start a nuclear war or something.

In fact, Vladimir Putin could invade Ukraine (even more than he has), slaughter its people (more than he has), and take control of the whole country, and Europe and its senile American daddy would sit watching it, as if it were a cheaply made reality program on YouTube.

The deep, increasingly deadly, cowardice that is paralyzingly any effective response to Putin is enabling the Russian leader to slaughter people like cattle, to further destabilize Ukraine, hoping to weaken it prior to a full-scale Russian invasion, and increasingly Putin's madness is provoked by Europe's and America's impotence (manifested by an endless run of "last chance" threats), with Putin supplying one rogue group after another with weapons to further destabilize the world.

Despite Putin's clearly dangerous behavior and designs, his foolish, greedy, and spineless opponents in the West still (disgustingly) want to be Putin's business partners, in working out "solutions", instead of his sworn enemies.

And all of that comes down to Obama-doctrine distancing, which seeks to deescalate—despite the increasing global body count of Obama’s foreign policies.

Yesterday, explaining once again why only silly little children any longer believe in nations standing up for truth, justice, and the American way, Secretary of State John Kerry said on Meet the Press that the world isn't about fighting enemies—it's about the complex job of working with sometimes unruly partners:
"The fact is we live in an extremely complicated world right now, where everybody is working on ten different things simultaneously. Russia is working with us  in a cooperative way on the P5+1. We just had important meetings in Vienna, in order to try to deal with Iran's nuclear program. Russia was constructive and helpful and worked at that effort. Russia has been constructive in helping to remove 100% of the declared chemical weapons from Syria. In fact, that was an agreement we made months ago, and it never faltered, even during these moments of conflict. So this is more complicated than just throwing names at each other and making declarations. There has to be a continued effort to find a way forward. And that's what we're trying to do but we made it clear even as we do that there is no naïveté with respect to what President Obama has done with these very tough sanctions."
So, it is not naïveté that blinds and binds Obama to what Putin is doing. What is it then? That Obama is in fact a silent, but mostly cooperative partner in Putin's piracy? Effectively, that is in fact the case.

At the very least, an unmitigated denunciation of Putin and Russia, seems to be the least he West could do to stand up to the Russian thug. Yet, Kerry says that is useless name-calling. Meanwhile, sending troops (Marines, NATO, NYPD?) to secure the crash site—immediately—would have been the correct and presidential thing to do. Obama did not do that and now the Russian proxy army ("separatists") occupying eastern Ukraine are looting the site and the bodies like the pirates they are.

People in the West live under the control of bloodthirsty maniacs, whose courage knows no bounds—so long as the people the courage is inflicted upon are poor and brown and barely capable of fighting back. Ask the USA and NATO to actually do their jobs and stop Russian thugs from slaughtering and plundering innocent people and these brave defenders of capitalism suddenly have a busy schedule of golfing and fundraising to attend to and cannot be expected to get confrontational with partners working on ten different things simultaneously who also have lots of nuclear weapons.

In fact, as Obama made clear on Friday, the United States is only prepared to go so far in using sanctions against Russia. After all, some Western capitalist might get hurt or something:
"With respect to the effect of sanctions on the [US] economy, we have consistently tried to tailor these sanctions in ways that would have an impact on Russia, on their economy, on their institutions or individuals that are aiding and abetting in the activities that are taking place in eastern Ukraine, while minimizing the impacts on not only the U.S. economy but the global economy. It is a relevant consideration that we have to keep in mind. The world economy is integrated; Russia is a large economy; there’s a lot of financial flows between Russia and the rest of the world...It is something that we have to obviously pay close attention to."
Not truth. Not justice. Money is the deciding factor in determining the role the US will play in the world.

Precisely.
