There is no doubt Americans are very much in the dark about what's going on around the world. With all that's going on in the world every major media outlet reports on the exact same few places, people and things. Simple logic would dictate that if the American news media were interested in actually reporting news there would be competition to get the freshest reports, get to the facts others are not, report from areas others are ignoring, and such like. Yet in America where we have 24/7 news channels each network focuses upon the same handful of stories from the same angle and then repeat themselves over and over again each 24 hour cycle.
When the protests and such was first brought to Americans attention the media portrayed the protestors as being average citizens rightly upset with the decisions of their president. (never mind their president was legally and democratically elected and the American media would never agree average American citizens would be right to protest Obama) Yet as soon as the heavy involvement of neo-Nazis among the protestors started coming out, and finally news started leaking out that most of the protests were under direct control of the neo-nazis, the American media stopped reporting on these matters. They did the same when it became clear the EU and American covert operations were involved in funding and supplying the neo-Nazis.
Many on the so-called American Right have been all for pushing and punishing Russia since shortly after the end of the Cold War. Many on the Left have been eager to punish Putin and Russia since Putin didn't fawn all over Obama as did other European leaders and then Putin took the unpardonable steps of denouncing homosexuality and taking legal steps to prevent homosexuals from adopting and promoting their abomination.
America is governed by lost sinners with sinful hearts, goals and intentions. Is it any wonder they would be engaged in proxy wars, stealth wars, meddling in other nations, promoting evil as good and calling good evil, even to the point of supporting neo-nazis and terroristic Muslims for their own sinful ends?
The best hope at the moment for keeping America out of another war is the fact most Americans are tired of war, uninterested in involvement in another war where there is no clear American interest, broke and unwilling to go even further in debt to pay for more war.
So, while many in government on the Right and Left clamour for war, most citizens are opposed to such. Unless the government can trick the people into backing war, they won't find this an easy time to get America into another war.
