Top Army Colonel: ‘This is The Beginning of The End Of Ukrainian Resistance’

Retired Army Colonel Douglas MacGregor joined Tucker Carlson on Fox News Tuesday to discuss the latest developments of the Ukraine-Russia conflict, noting that the first phase of Russia’s incursion is over, marking the “beginning of the end of the Ukrainian resistance.”

“The first five days, we witnessed a very slow, methodical movement of Russian forces into eastern Ukraine,” MacGregor said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday.

“That is Ukraine — the third of Ukraine, which is on the eastern side of this river, called the Dnieper. They move slowly, cautiously. They try to reduce casualties among the civilian population, tried to give as many Ukrainian troops and forces as possible the opportunity to give up, to surrender.”
 
 “That is over, and the phase in which we find ourselves now, Russian forces have now maneuver to encircle and surround the remaining Ukraine forces and destroy them, through a series of massive rocket artillery strikes, airstrikes with Russian armor then slowly, but surely closing the distance and annihilating what’s left.”

“So this is a — this is the beginning, frankly of the end of Ukrainian resistance,” he added.

Carlson then asked MacGregor what Putin’s endgame is in this conflict, to which MacGregor replied that it’s to take a portion of Ukraine and establish a buffer zone separating NATO with Russia.

“I think Vladimir Putin set out to honor his word of 2007,” MacGregor said simply.

In 2007 at the Munich Security Conference, he said: We will not tolerate the expansion of NATO to a point where your NATO, your border, is touching Russia, specifically Ukraine and Georgia. We see these as essentially Trojan horses for NATO’s military power and U.S. influence, subversion and so forth.

 “He then turned to several opportunities to reinforce that over and over and over again, most recently with President Biden in the hopes that he could avoid taking action to effectively clean out eastern Ukraine of any opposition forces whatsoever, and to put his forces in a position vis-a-vis NATO to deter us from any further attempts to influence or change Ukraine into effectively a platform for the projection of U.S. and Western power into Russia.

Now, his goal, as we see it, at the moment, is to seize this entire area of eastern Ukraine. That’s pretty clear. He is going to roll up to that river, up near Kyiv, he has actually moved over the river and is preparing to go in and capture that city entirely.

At that point, he has to decide what else he wants to do. I don’t think he wants to go any further west. I think he’d be very satisfied to hold that point. But he would like whatever emerges from this that we call Ukraine, whether it’s just the western side or it encompasses some of the east and the west of Ukraine to be neutral, non-aligned, and preferably friendly to Moscow, that he will accept. Anything short of that, his war has been a waste of time.

MacGregor claimed the Biden administration should then respond by telling Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to accept Putin’s terms because “there really is no choice.”

“I think President Biden and Sullivan, his National Security Adviser have already given some indication of their readiness to accept something like that,” he said. “They’re not going to have any choice. Either they accept it or then they put him in the position of having to do more than he would like to do, which would probably not go down well with NATO.”

“No one really wants Russian forces on their border, least of all Poland. So I think Sullivan and Biden will essentially tell Zelensky, if he is still the President at that point and if he is still running any semblance of the Ukrainian government, which is largely collapsing now. If he is still there, he is going to be told accept the deal, go neutral, because there really is no choice.”

Biden and the West can’t afford to send forces into Ukraine to push back Russian forces, so their bluster and rhetoric that they’ll take on Putin will fall apart in real time over the coming days, he said.

Tucker sometimes gets the truth out but he has to walk a very fine line in doing so. But I guess he’s about the best you can expect from the establishment media.

“Moved slowly” — by deep incursions with special forces that were then cut off.

“They try to reduce casualties among the civilian population...” — by shelling apartment complexes.

Seems a bit off to me.

MacGregor is just asking for a long IRS audit, or lengthy ethical review of his DoD pension

Pray that Colonel Douglas MacGregor is wrong.

His analysis just a few days prior was stunning in its negativity.

I hope Tucker will have the integrity to acknowledge the failed prediction.

Quite a pro-Putin take on it. We’ll see how long that insurgency lasts. The Ukes haven’t even started with urban warfare yet.

NATO countries, including the U.S. fear getting involved in the Ukraine war, because, it would trigger a bigger war against Russia and perhaps involving nuclear weapons.

What will NATO and the U.S. and the world do when Russia becomes emboldened by a win in Ukraine and then decides to invade other European countries? Show more fear and allow Putin to have his way in another country?

FACT is that, the world, including NATO and the U.S. have to stop Putin now. Putin is not going to risk using nuclear weapons and have his entire country wiped out.

Come back to this thred in 6-8 weeks and I think you will find Col. McGregor has nailed it on every major point. Putin will not accept NATO on his border and NATO will never go to war, and Biden’s mouth will be making promises we can’t keep.

Just yesterday, I saw this same guy claim the Ukrainians were going to make Putin the loser and they would defeat the Russkies. I thought what’s going on here? Is Fox telling him what to say to keep viewership up?

If Ukraine can hold on for a month, it is Putin who is in peril. I think Putin knows this.

“This is The Beginning of The End Of Ukrainian Resistance”

Unlikely. Ukrainian conventional forces will likely be defeated in the next couple of weeks, but the Ukrainian resistance will continue for as long as Russian troops are on Ukrainian soil.

This is NOT about NATO membership. This is about natural gas and oil. And control of the sale of it to the EU.

This will all be over soon—and you will understand why you should never believe the Mockingbird mass media ever again...

Japanese resistance continued on isolated Pacific islands after World War II ended.
