The Big Picture interviewed Douglas Macgregor, Col. (ret.) in Virginia, and asked him: What is the truth about the war in Ukraine? What is really happening there and does this policy of supporting the continuing war make any sense?
Macgregor is a career military fighter with experience in the first gulf war, a decorated combat veteran and a former advisor to the Secretary of Defence under President Donald Trump. He is a truth-teller and during this in-person interview tells the truth about what is truly happening in the Ukrainian war.
Why has America overextended itself into so many foreign wars? Is this good for the USA? Why is the USA fighting with China over Taiwan, with Russia over Ukraine? And why is the USA inserting itself in the affairs of countless other nations, all the while neglecting its own citizens at home? Macgregor addresses this madness.
Big Picture with James Patrick: The Truth about the Ukraine War | Doug Macgregor, 1 July 2023 (32 mins)
The war in Ukraine, Macgregor points out, has taken a hard toll on Ukraine’s population. Ukraine had a population of 90 million in the 1990s. After the revolts fomented by Soros and the CIA in 2004 and 2014, the population dropped to 33 million. Now with this war, it has sunk to 18 million.
It is time to discuss the purpose this war is serving. Is it helping Ukrainians? With an estimated nine Ukrainian soldiers being killed for each dead Russian soldier, we must question the rationale of this conflict. Why does the Zelensky government persist in sending their own young men to their certain death? Are these the actions of a leader who cares for his people?
Not since Stalin or Hitler has any leader been as satisfied to send his own citizens to be slaughtered as has Zelensky.
If he doesn’t obliterate the current generation of Ukrainian men, Zelensky is sure to shackle their grandchildren with the debt the war will produce. All military support for Ukraine is actually loans, with interest, to Ukraine. This debt entrapment Zelensky is placing his country in as he destroys it will ensure even more corruption, far into the future, in what is already one of the most corrupt countries.
The Big Picture’s James Patrick visited Ukraine during the election and can tell you that everyone over 30 years old thought the whole charade was a disgrace to the country, while those under 30 naively supported Zelensky. Suspicions swirl whether Kolomoisky isn’t a lieutenant for larger bankers in the food chain, pulling the strings of world affairs.
But what purpose does the war serve? If we follow the money as to the economic effects of this war, we observe it has produced a sharp antagonism between Western Europe and the primary supplier of oil and gas that fuels their economy: Russia. The conflict didn’t stop the flow but simply made the price skyrocket, crippling Western Europe.
This coincided with the detonation of the Nord Stream pipeline as documented by Seymore Hersh. Oddly enough, last fall Western European governments unleashed an elaborate marketing campaign to “get ready for a cold winter.” It sounds like the plan for a Net Zero economy, i.e., Zero Growth, is shaping up quite well! Poverty rather than prosperity seems to be the policy objective. But was this all planned?
Watch THIS 2019 interviewwhere Oleksiy Arestovych, a senior advisor to Zelensky, casually said that they would provoke a Russian invasion that would lead to the devastation of Ukraine. This makes one wonder if Zelensky isn’t purposefully sabotaging his own country on behalf of the bigger fish that control him, with the intent of further economically devastating Western Europe.
