“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. – J Robert Oppenheimer.

Statement by the President on the Ukraine Freedom Support Act
Today, I have signed H.R. 5859, the Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014, into law. Signing this legislation does not signal a change in the Administration’s sanctions policy, which we have carefully calibrated in accordance with developments on the ground and coordinated with our allies and partners. At this time, the Administration does not intend to impose sanctions under this law, but the Act gives the Administration additional authorities that could be utilized, if circumstances warranted.
My Administration will continue to work closely with allies and partners in Europe and internationally to respond to developments in Ukraine and will continue to review and calibrate our sanctions to respond to Russia's actions. We again call on Russia to end its occupation and attempted annexation of Crimea, cease support to separatists in eastern Ukraine, and implement the obligations it signed up to under the Minsk agreements.
As I have said many times, our goal is to promote a diplomatic solution that provides a lasting resolution to the conflict and helps to promote growth and stability in Ukraine and regionally, including in Russia. In this context, we continue to call on Russia's leadership to implement the Minsk agreements and to reach a lasting and comprehensive resolution to the conflict which respects Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. We remain prepared to roll back sanctions should Russia take the necessary steps.
we have a nation of our own to fix, and we don't need to be in pissing contests with half of the world.
I"ll repeat it again: Have you read/seen the actual polling data these articles are referring to?

economic warfare against Nations who do not desire to participate
in Western Banking Hegemony. This is seen by all Nations and
will cause long term reverberations to the Western Banking cartels.
Nations, like Russia, who's economies produce surplus capital due
to extractive industries would, in any other time in history, be the
envy of the World. This surplus capital that the Russians hold will
mitigate the Western Banker's attacks, but the Russian people will
suffer for the several years it takes to coordinate alternate banking,
financing, currency arrangements and build a coalition of supportive
Nations. This could have been avoided with a sane USA policy, instead
of the continued NWO (CorpGov) model favored by Western Capital
Elitists. The Elitists will profit handsomely from the new Cold War
just like they profit from Hot Wars, but they fear genuine peace, because
they need collective fear to keep the profits flowing. Expect a continuing
barrage of MSM demons to generate that required fear. By the way, who
owns the MSM and do they get what they pay for?
