  1. It’s incredibly telling that the Pentagon knows better than any of us why we should do whatever we can to obtain peace in Ukraine and with China. WHAT is wrong with the Biden administration? Explain it to us like we’re a 7-year old.

    1. Patricia, I can’t think of a single time during his long political career where Biden chose peace over war.

  2. Excellent interview Arron. Is there a way you can publish transcript of the interview so we can send to those who would rater read the interview than sit through it. MacGregorcis very good.

  3. grayzone suffers from ubiquitous censorship; the mcCarthite police state only permits Macgregor on fringe media

  4. In 30 days or so Russia might choose to end their police action that was designed to protect Eastern Ukrainians from Nazi terrorists backed by the US by increasing their force against the US proxy war. In doing so many people, mostly Ukrainians will die and suffer needlessly because the US de facto government refuses peace. The senators and representatives from my state are afraid to speak up against the Washington DC status quo. If Russia goes all in to protect the Eastern Ukrainians against the US, it can be said that Washington DC started another one of their forever wars.

    1. Winter is coming.

      I would not bet on a war in Russia during the winter lasting forever. Both Napoleon and Adolf lost that bet in the past. Both attempts led to Russian armies, and possibly their allies, in Paris and Berlin.

      Winter is coming.
      Me, I’ve suddenly got an urge to listen to Leonard Cohen…. First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin. “They sentenced me to 20 years of boredom, for trying to change the system from within.”

      “In 30 days or so Russia might choose to end their police action”

      Sorry but they can’t. Simply because they never started a police action in the Ukraine in the first place. What they did start is a war of aggression calculated to kill the Ukrainian government, install a puppet regime in its place, eliminate the Ukraine as a sovereign nation, and subjugate the Ukrainian people.

      ” that was designed to protect Eastern Ukrainians from Nazi terrorists backed
      by the US”

      A threadbare, and vacuous Russian clickbait excuse for invading a sovereign country. Helped in no small part by Russia fomenting an insurrection in Donetsk and Luhansk and labelling ordinary counter insurrection action on part of the Ukraine as ‘Nazi terrorism’. They would have a right to speak if the Ukraine went at the insurgents in the same way Mr. Putin drowned the Czechen insurrection in blood and destruction, but that never happened.

      ” by increasing their force against the US proxy war.”

      No, because the Russians are quite powerless to do so unless they want to use nukes, chemical, or biological weapons. If they could have escalated they would have done so already. That’s the reason they have called up so many reservists. Their problem currenly is how to train, organise, equip, supply and gainfully expend those conscripts.

      Look, Russia has an economy the size of Spain. The only difference: it’s sitting on a lot of valuable natural resources and has a lot of cannon fodder walking about in the non-ethnic-Russian republics. It’s mobilising its cannon fodder but can it equip thm before it sends them off to the slaughter? It won’t be able to match the capacity of the West to resupply Ukraine, even after several rounds of Western reductions in defense spending.

      ” In doing so many people, mostly Ukrainians will die and suffer needlessly because the US de facto government refuses peace.”

      That’s nonsense, and you know it. The Ukrainian people are quite prepared to fight. It’s the US that’s eying the cost-benefit tally sheets of this war and may call it quits if the costs outweigh the price of its convictions.

      “If Russia goes all in to protect the Eastern Ukrainians against the US”

      Russia never tried to ‘protect’ anything except its own imperialist and revisionist territorial ambitions,

      “, it can be said that Washington DC started another one of their forever wars.”

      As long as there are criminals like Mr. Putin, the choice between war and death is inevitable.

  5. One of the lessons from the beginning of World War One, the War to End All Wars over a century ago, is as follows.

    The weaker powers within an alliance have a tendency to drag the bigger powers into a fight. Think of a little brother who is incredibly aggressive because big brother is going to back them up.

    The crisis that launched World War One and its mass slaughter began when Serbian militants assassinated the Arch Duke of Austria. And yet of course, this is known as a World War, not yet another Balkans War of which several had already been fought. The difference was this dynamic where weaker powers force the stronger powers into war.

    Austria-Hungary was very aggressive, believing that Germany would and must back them up. And that was the path to a major world war and millions of dead and all of the horrors of this new age of industrialized warfare. And of course, World War II came directly from the results of WW1, and thus could be considered additional costs the world has paid because of the weaker allies pushing everything to the brink.
