Colonel Doug Macgregor debunks the narrative about Russia using Nuclear Weapons in Eastern Europe

Col. Macgregor makes a good point in the video. In the next few weeks or so, American propaganda about Russian military failures in Ukraine will almost certainly be disproved by facts on the ground. What will happen then? How will MSM and politicians react when the ridiculous claims they have been making go south?

  1. I am very much afraid that some politicians, and mainstream media, would rather involve us in a war than admit they were wrong.

    We have already blown the chance of having Russia as an ally in dealing with radical Islam and driven Russia into China’s waiting arms.

    1. Yeah. Our leaders seem willing to fight until the last Ukrainian dies. The open question is whether our leaders are willing to fight Russia by putting our own children on the battlefield.

      I hope not.

  2. “American propaganda about Russian military failures in Ukraine?

    WTF are you talking about? Their military failures have been spectacular. They have now gone to Plan B – which should have been Plan A all along.

    1. RE: “Their military failures have been spectacular.”

      Since you don’t name any, there’s no way to know what you are talking about. The situation reports I’ve been reading since the war began clearly show that Russian forces have been able to go wherever they wanted, whenever they wanted and have won decisive victories in the battles they chose to fight, as in Mariupol. Furthermore, they have trapped the main Ukrainian army in the Donbas and begun their annihilation of it. The systematic killing of 60,000 Ukrainian troops that is now underway is the event media and politicians won’t be able to spin away as a plucky Ukrainian victory.

      1. I do not have to name any. The failures are there for all to see.

        In a nutshell, Russia invaded on too many fronts in the expectation of quickly seizing the whole country and effecting regime change to turn Ukraine once again into a Russian province. They have failed in that initial war aim spectacularly and have retreated and retrenched to try again with a much narrower focus. That is NOT success. That is failure. Not since Russia’s massive invasion of Finland in 1939 has such a lop-sided war turned out so badly for the far more powerful aggressor.

        Then there is the failure to achieve air superiority and the spectacular and shocking destruction of their most significant capital ship in the Black Sea.

        From a strategic point of view, Russia’s failure could hardly be worse. They have galvanized NATO, wrecked their economy, re-militarized Germany, pushed Finland and Sweden closer to NATO membership, and demonstrated to the world how hollow, corrupt, and incompetent their much-vaunted military actually is. The only “victory” still available to Russia – if they can “win” anything – will become the new textbook example of a Pyrrhic victory.

        FWIIW, your constant uncritical regurgitation of absurd Russian propaganda is leaving the realm of funny and entering the world of just plain sad.

      2. RE: “In a nutshell, Russia invaded on too many fronts in the expectation of quickly seizing the whole country and effecting regime change to turn Ukraine once again into a Russian province.”

        Or else, as a number of American military analysts has described in the past, several of the fronts were classic diversionary feints.

        RE: “Then there is the failure to achieve air superiority and the spectacular and shocking destruction of their most significant capital ship in the Black Sea.”

        I have seen no reports that Ukraine controls any skies, and the cause of the sinking of the Moskva is unknown. The only photo of the damaged ship to emerge does not support the theory that it suffered a missile attack.

        RE: “They have galvanized NATO, wrecked their economy, re-militarized Germany, pushed Finland and Sweden closer to NATO membership, and demonstrated to the world how hollow, corrupt, and incompetent their much-vaunted military actually is.”

        Blah, blah, blah. NATO has proved to be a paper tiger — poorly equipped and afraid to act. There is no evidence the Russian economy is wrecked, but the EU’s may be as the result of U.S. sanctions.

        RE: “FWIIW, your constant uncritical regurgitation of absurd Russian propaganda is leaving the realm of funny and entering the world of just plain sad.”

        Where is the Russian propaganda in this thread? Are you accusing Col. Macgregor of being a Russian propagandist?

        1. Diversionary tactic? From what?

          Russian aircraft cannot support Russian forces without grave risk of destruction. That is NOT air superiority.

          There is now ZERO doubt as to the cause of the destruction of the Moskva.

          Your characterization of the NATO response is pitiful. It is strong and united. It is clear now that Russian forces are nowhere near a match for NATO in any way.

          There is PLENTY of evidence that the Russian economy is wrecked, and it is getting worse every day.

          Like I noted above, your pro-Putin rants are not funny anymore. They are just plain sad.

          Here is a Russian perspective for you to consider. . .

        2. RE: “Diversionary tactic? From what?”

          To tie up Ukranian forces in the North so that Russia could create a “land bridge” in the South for secure logistics to support its pincer movement around Donbas, or so the theory goes.

          The speaker in this video is Brian Berletic, reportedly a retired marine with combat experience in the Middle East. I find his videos credible to the extent that he documents his sources in the show notes.

          RE: “There is now ZERO doubt as to the cause of the destruction of the Moskva.”

          In your mind only.

          RE: “There is PLENTY of evidence that the Russian economy is wrecked, and it is getting worse every day.”

          Give us some. You once claimed the exchange rate of the ruble had collapsed, but that has completely reversed.

          RE: “Here is a Russian perspective for you to consider.”

          There is nothing to consider. Garry Kasparov is just guessing.

  3. The same guy who called Zelenskyy a “puppet” is now saying that the nuclear option is off the table for Putin? Horse feathers!

    There is a reason our military intelligence is monitoring Russia nuclear forces. Putin put them on high alert early on in the invasion. The fact that his original objectives have changed because of the failures of his military to advance them (I prefer to say the Ukrainians have rebuffed the Russian army), the idea that Putin would resort to “tactical” nuclear weapons is a legitimate concern that should not be ignored.

    But then again, this Colonel was part of Trump’s military advisory committee, so anything he has to say should be considered with a grain of salt. Or a REALLY bigly salt lick.

    “Our leaders seem willing to fight until the last Ukrainian dies. ”

    The decisions are being made by the Ukrainians. It has nothing to do with our leaders, except the support we are providing to them to continue to DEFEND THEIR COUNTRY from a belligerent neighbor who has decided that Ukraine is not really a country and never has been. England MAY start to think the same thing about US.

  4. MacGregor is an anti-Semitic Putin lackey. He refers to “rootless cosmopolitans”, a term that Stalin used to purge Jews, as being the source of our “problems” in America.

    Putin had absolutely no right by any stretch to invade a sovereign nation because he want a seaport and wheat fields along with the title of Emperor Supremo.

    Compromising with Putin is a fool’s errand. He is the “midge” that Russia needs to spit out.

      1. The topic is Ukraine, not victims of American foreign policy debacles.

        By what right does Putin have to invade a sovereign nation, killing 10’s of thousands, flattening towns and villages, raping and torturing civilians? He at least was invited to Syria by the butcher Assad. Chechnya was trying to rid themselves of Russian rule.

        Ukraine had borders and stayed within them as Putin helped himself to Crimea by a stealth invasion. He started the Donbas invasion. It doesn’t matter that Putin said Ukraine is not even a country. It is a nation, period.

        People like MacGregor, Carlson, et.al. are just providing aid and comfort to the enemy and Putin is using what they say as “proof” to his own people that the war is a great success.
