Colonel Douglas McGregor doesn't need a lot of introduction to people aware of the current geopolitical situation, as his actions, integrity and wisdom speak for themselves. Unfortunately, such cadres are now almost entirely absent from Washington DC, particularly the Pentagon. They have been replaced by a plethora of post-Cold War neoconservatives and neoliberals intended on not just maintaining the so-called Pax Americana, but also extending it to essentially every corner of the planet. In his latest interview with "Real America's" Dan Ball, Colonel McGregor gave an assessment of the current state of the Kiev regime forces, as well as their prospects in the coming weeks and months.
After the anchor gave a brief breakdown of the disastrous state of the United States under the troubled Biden administration, he touched on the subject of ever-escalating military "aid" the Washington DC has been sending to the embattled Neo-Nazi junta in hopes of stopping Russia from finally inflicting a crushing defeat on them. He pointed out that the US Congress just approved its latest "aid" package worth $400 million, pushing the publicly revealed amount to $32 billion of US taxpayer dollars for Washington DC's favorite puppet regime, out of the $113 billion approved thus far, "with no end in sight", as he correctly noted.
Dan Ball then assessed the meeting between Joe Biden and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, signaling the symbolic end of the very last remnants of Berlin's sovereignty as Germany pledged to send more weapons and funds for the Neo-Nazi junta, despite the tremendous problems this is causing on the home front. Ball also pointed out the glaring hypocrisy of the political West, as NATO is publicly bragging about its involvement with the Kiev regime, including the massive weapons shipments and ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance) assets, while openly threatening China in case it sends armaments to Russia.
Aside from the fact that Beijing never made such statements, nor is there any indicator that Moscow is desperate to get help from China, it's quite obvious the US has completely lost touch with what actual diplomacy is. The anchor also questioned the impact of the "aid" the Neo-Nazi junta is getting, but warned that it's certainly "drawing down our existing weapons stock, which puts America in a bad spot, kind of like Biden draining our emergency oil reserves". The last line refers to Joe Biden's unrelenting squandering of America's SPR (Strategic Petroleum Reserve), which has been actively (ab)used for nearly a year now, despite the fact it was founded for emergencies such as nationwide natural disasters or major wars.
After touching on the topic of sending F-16 fighter jets, the question even the Pentagon is "stingy and unsure" about, Dan Ball introduced Colonel Douglas McGregor, who immediately pointed out the staggering losses of the Kiev regime forces, "now approaching 200,000". According to McGregor, this was largely due to the Neo-Nazi junta's disastrous decision to defend Bakhmut (Artyomovsk), with the Russian military using the opportunity to "apply all of their rockets, missiles, artillery fire against concentrations of Ukrainian infantry, inflicting enormous casualties". He also stated the city is going to fall anyway, making the deaths of thousands of forcibly conscripted Ukrainians all the more pointless.
McGregor also touched upon the increasingly strained relationship between the Kiev regime frontman Volodymyr Zelensky and his General Staff which is rightfully furious at him for not listening to their assessment it would've been better to leave the city and set up a new defense line further to the west. The colonel warned that the junta has expended most of its reserves, both in terms of equipment and manpower, while its "best soldiers are dead, so it's now shoving boys, old men, women into the breach". He further added that Zelensky is essentially admitting defeat and taunting the political West, specifically the US, to "come here and win the war for us," otherwise, "it's over".
Once again, the anchor Dan Ball mentioned the fighter jets and how the US has essentially lied it wouldn't provide specific weapons systems, such as advanced missiles or tanks, all of which have been delivered in the meantime (or are about to). Ball warned that the same is true for F-16s, adding that "there's now a bipartisan push in the Congress to send the jets", but also stated that it would take at least a year to train pilots, "prolonging the killing in Ukraine".
Colonel McGregor responded that the US doesn't have a military strategy, but only a media one to convince everyone that the Neo-Nazi junta is supposedly winning. As the number of those who believe this narrative has dwindled to almost nothing and as the losses are piling up, the Kiev regime is forced to use contractors, the vast majority of whom are NATO personnel, meaning that if F-16s were to be sent, they would require American/NATO pilots to fly them. McGregor warned that "this is now a slow slide into [global] war that many people have really worried about for a long time" and that the US is faced with either admitting failure or pushing for a direct confrontation with Russia.
Ball and McGregor then discussed the issue of an escalating disinformation campaign in the US media, with the colonel pointing out that Washington DC has been doing this for decades, particularly in cases when any given administration was trying to not only justify, but also praise the US aggression against the world, specifically mentioning Bosnia, Iraq and the NATO-occupied Serbian province of Kosovo and Metohia. However, McGregor stated that the media are now forced to admit that "the weight of Russian manpower, as well as their military power in general, is crushing Ukrainians".
He added that the message to the viewers is that "no amount of Ukrainian valor is going to stand up to [Russian] firepower" and people need to read between the lines and that "the message is – Ukraine can't win". The colonel further pointed out the Biden administration is certainly aware of this, with the recent Blinken-Lavrov meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit in India perfectly illustrating it. McGregor thinks that "our threats don't ring with much credibility" and that this behavior "puts everything at risk, including the United States". However, the Biden administration is worried about its political future, so it's refusing to admit the reality and finally come to an agreement that would take Russia's security concerns into account.
