MacGregor: U.S. Should "Stop Shipping Weapons And Stop Encouraging Ukrainians To Die In A Hopeless Endeavor"

Retired Col. Doug MacGregor said Sunday on FOX News about the Ukrain-Russia war: TREY GOWDY: why do you think that Putin is doing this? What is his end game? COL. DOUG MACGREGOR: Well, Vladimir Putin is carrying through on something he has been warning us about at least for the last 15 finally years, which is he will not tolerate U.S. forces or missiles on his borders. Much as we would not tolerate Russian missiles or troops in Cuba. And we ignored him and he finally acted. He was not going to allow Ukraine, under any circumstances, to join NATO. What is now happening is the battle in Eastern Ukraine is really almost over, all the Ukrainian troops there have been largely surrounded and cut off, you have a concentration down in the southeast of 30 to 40,000 of them, and if they don't surrender in next 48 hours, I suspect the Russians will ultimately annihilate them. That's why Zelensy is meeting with Putin's representatives right now. The game is over. And he's going t have to negotiate the best deal he can get. And we've already told him, the president of the U.S., said that if he opts for neutrality for Ukraine, we will back him. And I think Vladimir Putin will do that for Western Ukraine. That is Ukraine beyond the Dnieper river, but behind it in the East, I'm not sure what he has planned there, whether he forms another republic [or] annexes it into Russia. Because the territory in the west of Ukraine is not, he knows that, and he is happy to live with that as a neutral state. TREY GOWDY: I am not a military expert. I'm not even an expert on geography, but if he takes Ukraine [next to] Poland, he has a NATO country on his border. If that's what he doesn't want, isn't he just going to have to keep going until he runs out of NATO countries? MACGREGOR: I should say agin, he has no interest in crossing the Dnieper and heding west of the Polish border. I think you'll find in these negotiations he is quite willing to neutralize that territory on the Austrian or Finnish model. Right now Russia already touches Estonia and part of Latvia, and White Russia [Belarus] touches Lithuania. His army is too small for that purpose and he knows it. So this is not something he is looking for. We're imputing to him things he does not want to do in our usual effort to demonize him and his country. We need to remember that Ukraine is fourth from the bottom of 158 countries in the in world, at corruption. Russia is 3 or 4 places above them. This is not the liberal democracy, the shining example that everyone says it is, far from it. Mr. Zelensky has jailed journalists and his political opposition. I think we need to stay out of it. The American people think we should stay out of it, the Europeans think we should stay out of it, and we should stop shipping weapons and encouraging Ukrainians to die in what is a hopeless endeavor. TREY GOWDY: You say no sanctions or military aid, just let Russia take that portion of Ukraine that they want to take? DOUG MACGREGOR: Yes. Absolutely. I see no reason why we should fight with the Russians over something they have been talking about for years, we chose to ignore it more importantly, the population there is indistinguishable from their own. You know, the thing that is so disturbing, on one hand, we'll not send our forces to fight. But we're urging Ukrainians to die pointlessly in a fight they can't win. We're going to create a far worse humanitarian disaster if this does not stop.
