‘Every claim is false’: Tucker talks unreported atrocities in Ukraine war with Army Col Douglas Macgregor
A frank conversation on the war in Ukraine dispelled the corporate media narrative as retired U.S. Army Col. Douglas Macgregor told Tucker Carlson why the “terrible tragedy…should be ended.”
The latest episode of “Tucker on Twitter” was posted to X Monday and cut right through the propaganda with some eye-opening figures for the colonel. First, Carlson reminded viewers how “Pretty much everything that NBC News and The New York Times have told you about the war in Ukraine is a lie.”
“‘The Russian army is incompetent,’ they claim. ‘Ukraine is a democracy.’ ‘Vladimir Putin is Hitler, and he’s trying to take over the world.’ ‘Thankfully, the Ukrainians are winning,'” he presented in his brief monologue for episode 18.
“None of that is true. Every claim is false,” contended Carlson. “The last one, especially.”
“The Ukrainian Army is not winning. In fact,” he argued, “it’s losing badly. Ukraine is being destroyed. Its population is being slaughtered in lopsided battles with a technologically superior enemy or scattered by the millions to the rest of the globe as refugees. Ukraine is running out of soldiers.”
“As that happens, the question will inevitably arise who’s gonna replace them? If the Ukrainians can’t beat Putin, who will? The answer, of course, will be us. American troops will fight the Russian army in Eastern Europe. That’s most likely. And the assumption is we’ll win. But will we win?” the former primetime host wondered before bringing in Macgregor.
As had been the case when they’d spoken together on Fox News, the colonel’s position bucked Washington, D.C.’s ongoing and costly support of the Ukrainian military by contending that, even with our aid, they have been dying in droves.
“I think all of the lies that have been told for more than a year-and-a-half about the Ukrainians are winning; the Ukrainian cause is just; the Russians are evil; the Russians are incompetent; all of that is collapsing, and it’s collapsing because what’s happening on the battlefield is horrific,” said Macgregor.
The colonel reported that at least 40,000 Ukrainian men had been killed in just the last month bringing the total estimate to around 400,000 since Russia had invaded in Feb. 2022. “We don’t even know how many people have been wounded, but we know probably upwards of 40- to 50,000 soldiers are amputees.”
“We know the hospitals are full,” he added before noting that many “Ukrainian units at the platoon and company level,” measuring from 50 to 200 men at a time, have been surrendering to the Russians for the sake of the wounded “because they can’t fight anymore.”
“All of this happens in a way that is just not reported in the West. And in the meantime, rather than admit that this is a terrible tragedy that should be ended, on humanitarian grounds if no other, that the killing should stop — as President Trump said ‘Stop the killing,’ we’re gonna continue,” lamented Macgregor. “And this puts the Russians in the unhappy position of marching further west.”
It was later suggested that the Russians had not been initially prepared for the conflict, but had since amassed around 750,000 troops in and around their neighboring nation and could grow to a force as large as 1.2 million over the next year.
Meanwhile, Macgregor slammed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy “and the radicals around him” who’ve “basically committed to fighting this war to the last Ukrainian. And of course, I’m sure that Mr. Zelenskyy and friends are anxious at some point to retire to their estates in Florida, or Venice or Cyprus to collect on the billions that they’ve managed to steal or siphon from all the aid that we’ve provided. Remember, Ukraine is probably one of the most corrupt places in the world.”
