The Russ­ian inva­sion of Ukraine with its hor­rif­ic atroc­i­ties and mas­sive refugee cri­sis has turned the world upside down. The war will have a huge impact on glob­al food secu­ri­ty as both coun­tries are major exporters of wheat, bar­ley and oth­er grains. As usu­al, the media pro­vide very lit­tle con­text and back­ground. We are told ad nau­se­um that the Russ­ian inva­sion was unpro­voked. A care­ful look at his­to­ry reveals a slight­ly more nuanced pic­ture. To explain is not to excuse Moscow’s crim­i­nal attack. Mean­while, as two-time leg­endary Medal of Hon­or win­ner Marine Corps Gen­er­al Smed­ley But­ler reminds us, War is a rack­et.” U.S. weapons cor­po­ra­tions are lin­ing up to feed at the trough. Before the war is over many Ukraini­ans and Rus­sians will die while Raytheon, Lock­heed Mar­tin and Northrop Grum­man will make mon­ey hand over fist.
