Mostly what we hear from the mainstream corporate media about the Ukraine War is that Russia simply must be defeated, even if it means sacrificing the lives of every last man, woman and child in Ukraine. But few of the pundits, politicians and think tankers promoting this program have much of an idea about whether this outcome is remotely possible.
Guest host Aaron Maté and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger speak with retired U.S. Army Colonel Douglas Macgregor about the collective delusion among Western nations that Ukraine can defeat Russia on the battlefield.

I think we should send one of our most dangerous weapons aka Lindsay Graham to the front lines in Ukrane.
In a way, I hope it’s even worse, since the only ones who can stop this madness, are the Ukrainian citizens themselves.
Now china is going to back Russia.
Wasn't it TRUMP that was getting US in a war?
Epstein didn't kill himself
I wonder if Germany will declare war on the USA for blowing up that Russian pipeline?
Audit all politicians.. then you will understand why they say what they do….💰
The way the collective west are so willing to sacrifice the Ukrainian people is disgusting. And their evil dictator Elensky. Should go down in history in infamy
Lindsey Graham has a serious case a pedophile face. Pretty weird how all pedophiles look like that and how so many people that look like that turn out to be pedophiles. Of course I'm in no way insinuating that Lindsey Graham is a pedophile, just insinuating that he looks like one (in my opinion).
Feel so sorry for the ordinary Ukrainian people who are suffering & dying bcus of the mad US/NATO putsch of their country. Sheer madness & evil!
I don't know what McGregor is entertaining here. Ukr has recently made quite some progress towards Vuhledar and Severk. IDK how far will that go, but its clear, Ukr isn't giving anything for free. But more importantly, what does he mean by few weeks will be devastating? Does he actually mean that after a few weeks Ukr will start having good time cos heavy arms and armored vehicles will arrive from the west?
Putin emptyin da jails
Lindsy look s like old evil baby, Talk like lunatic, GOD BLESS COL MACGREGOR
I would like to remind our "leaders" (and I use the term loosely) that Russia has 6,000 nuclear weapons and the ICBM's, rockets, missiles, bombers and submarines to deliver them to all of Europe and the mainland U.S. They can wipe out all of the major cities of the east and west coasts of America with just ten or twelve H-bombs on each coast. Do you really trust Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to lead us to the brink of World War Three? These are the two dumbest, most incompetent people to occupy the White House in U.S. history. Think about it like your life depends on it, because it does.
"Beware of Jewish fables" st Paul refering to American foreign policy.
You know I don't know if everyone else is getting as tired of this bullshit as I am but I just wish Russia I would go through Ukraine and devastate the whole damn place and get this over with! Because that's what they're going to have to end up doing. And I would rather see Russia own that land than America or black rock or Poland or Ukraine!
Too many of our lawmakers have spent decades in their position being isolated from the true American public. They have no clue what they're doing they're only doing what they're told to do and they are so well trained by the New World Order, that they will never do anything that people want. Lindsey Graham is a perfect example of this.
What a hypocrite bastard, rrs
This guy is CIA.
Obrigado Senhor Doug MacGregor por me permitir acreditar que existe alguma esperança na Humanidade e que, apesar de os Estados Unidos da América serem um grande país e um país grande , there's still some good and comon sense in Us , Ser Humano!🇵🇹
I wonder which u.s. AF unit will be screwed over to give Ukraine F16s. If no u.s. unit is getting screwed over, then it will be some other allied country. Lockheed ain't like Ford of GM, it takes a much longer time to make the F16 than it does an automobile. I can guarantee that all F16s on the factory floor are already allocated. So we return to the original question, who's going to take one for the team? Likely it's gonna be some guard unit that badly needs to replace their older F16s. So much protecting CONUS airspace.
The hypocrisy from this guy's mouth is sickening.They are psychopaths
I forgot to address the whole training issue as well, they'd have to bump some allies out to accommodate the short notice training for Ukraine pilots.
I vote we send Senator Graham to the Ukrainian "meat grinder".
Do people realise without diplomacy and peace talks everyone is walking into conscription
Thank you for your honesty.
Baerbock wants Putin to do a 360.
What the US is doing is sending their old crap to Ukraine and while they doing that all allied locations may be taking in better weaponry so that the US bases, if any, have it at the ready after Ukraine falls… that is when a heavy attack could happen against Russia and China at the same time … dead of night when they least expect it…. Hopefully this is not the case scenario to happen… LOL… if anything the attack will be against locations they believe are the silos that house nukes… lets hope these fools wanting war have none of this idea in their head… this is a more than likely coming to head …. if at all possible…. LOL
Wasn't Putin forced to attack Ukraine when NATO put missiles on his border and broke the old agreement made with NATO not to expand closer to the Russian border ?
Lindsay Graham – frothing at the mouth, so desperate to send our kids overseas to die
Why doesn't anyone recognize this or call this out as the money-laundering machine it is? Look at where the billions of dollars in these crazy Recovery, Stimulus Bills have gone. I'm old eough to remember NASA. We could use another William Proxmire in the Senate. But I digress…damn Hennessy got hold of me tonight
It’s unconscionable the amount of propaganda taking place right now. I thought it was bad during the Covid outbreak.
I thought Trump was the one who would bring us into ww3. 🤔 🤣
🤔. You gotta figure that at some point the war mongering profiteers are planning to stop this push for conflict thinking that they have made all the money they can possibly make before real WW3 happens. 🙃. They are crazy, the question is how crazy? Can they actually judge that fine line accurately. ?
This is one man I would welcome in my foxhole.
I can’t help believe that a huge number of politicians and their war mongering minions in the federal gov agencies are currently right now guilty of war crimes and treason
How can you ask childrens not to lie?
Lindsay Graham needs to be tried for treason.
Graham is a war monger. Always starting wars. Put him and his family on the front line, then I would go. Other than that, tell him to be quiet. It is disgraceful of a US senator to be pushing war all the time.
Lindsey Graham is such a coward.
I have failed to understand for many years how this half-man half-something else Graham cracker-cookie is still a thing in the Senate of the USA. I think I have never seen a more dishonorable, more capricious, more derelict, more evil mind in my lifetime of witnessing a variety of scum-bags roaming the halls of Congress. That Democrats have not taken an electoral aim against this Graham cracker and defeat his bivalent, double purpose ass out of Congress has never ceased to surprise me.
After Russia's invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Macgregor appeared on three Fox News programs in February and early March to speak in support of Russia's actions. Three days after the war began, he said "The battle in eastern Ukraine is really almost over," and predicted "If [Ukraine] don't surrender in the next 24 hours, I suspect Russia will ultimately annihilate them." Macgregor said he believed Russia should be allowed to seize whatever parts of Ukraine it wanted. In his second appearance, he revised his prediction: "The first five days Russian forces I think frankly were too gentle. They've now corrected that. So, I would say another 10 days this should be completely over… I think the most heroic thing he could do right now is come to terms with reality. Neutralize Ukraine." After one of his appearances, Macgregor's comments were characterized by veteran Fox News Pentagon correspondent Jennifer Griffin as "distorting" and "appeasement" and that he was being an "apologist" for Putin.
“He (Putin) will not stop if we do not.”
EXACTLY!!!! So just freaking STOP! Or we’re all in some seriously deep shit.
No it won’t
The halls of hell will be populated by US politicians.
Omg americans i dont understand u why u voted that mo*nster lyndsy graham.
Lyndsy gram should be in f 16. Il be very happy. He is so disgusting.
Anything Lindsay Graham is for you can guarantee is bad for America
