Scott is joined by retired Col. Douglas Macgregor to discuss an article he wrote about the war in Ukraine. Macgregor points to the lies that got us into a situation earlier this year where a Russian invasion was inevitable and the lies that are allowing the war to grind on. He goes through how the Russian goal has shifted from one of Ukrainian neutrality to one of Russian annexation. Macgregor says there’s no going back to a Donbas region without Russian troops. The question now is: how do we end the fighting?
Discussed on the show:
- “When The Lies Come Home” (The American Conservative)
- “When the secretaries of Defense and State said publicly the U.S. wants Ukraine to win and weaken Russia, Biden said tone it down” (NBC News)
Douglas Macgregor, Col. (ret.) is a senior fellow with The American Conservative, the former advisor to the Secretary of Defense in the Trump administration, a decorated combat veteran, and the author of five books.
