Why in the world would he do such a thing? Well, it's because he is marching to the beat of Corporatism's Military-Industrial Complex (the MIC) and its large cadre of war hawks that have every intention of bringing Russia down.

The GOP, the MIC's chief subsidiary in Congress loves wars; plus an increasing number of Democrats have learned to also love these wars that Mr. Obama is conducting in the Middle East. It's difficult to know for sure whether this president has always embraced this kind of militancy or whether he has decided that "If you can't beat them then just join them."

What a tremendous disappointment this president has been. He could have and should have worked tirelessly to create millions of new jobs for desperate Americans. Sure he would have met great resistance from Corporate America and the Republican Party but, if he had been up to the task, he would have discussed this with the American people over and over again in speeches across this country, and rallied them to this cause; and they would have overwhelmingly supported him and demanded that Congress take action. He did no such thing, he didn't even try; he has failed his country and its people.

It's an almost impossible task for the American people to find a way to remove Corporate America's control over this government. But the objective becomes far more difficult when we have American presidents like Mr. Obama who allow themselves to cave in to the overwhelming power and control of this Corporatocracy. This is like a systemic disease that has invaded the body of America, one for which we can't seem to find a cure; at least not yet.
