Obama Wants Britain in the EU

US president Barack Obama recently said he wants Britain to remain a member of the European Union. Some people have questioned why this is his business.
US politicians looks at Russia across the rest of Europe. They don't want non-Russian Europe to be a chessboard of pieces which NATO and Russia will have to try to woo, each independently of the others. They would much rather that all of non-Russian Europe formed a single bloc clearly aligned with NATO, and not in the Russian sphere of influence.
After communism collapsed in Russia, many countries that had been under Russian domination joined the EU. My reading of history is that one of their main reasons was exactly what Obama wants: they want to be in a NATO-aligned bloc that protects them from Russia. They want to make sure Russia never rules them again.

Not just Obam, all the recent US secutaries of the treasury and secutaries of state, and ex presidents have said the same. And one reason the "outers" used to give for leaving was to be closer to the USA
