Douglas Macgregor, retired U.S. Army colonel, decorated combat veteran, and former advisor to the Secretary of Defense in the Trump administration, said in an interview last week that he believes the Russian forces have been “too gentle” during their invasion in Ukraine.

Images have emerged from the conflict showing Ukrainian civilians chatting with soldiers riding in tanks, and some even standing in front of military convoys rolling into cities surrounding Kyiv. He said Moscow seems to have corrected its approach to the war and has begun to inflict more pain. He predicted that the war would be completed in 10 days.

Macgregor made his comments during an interview with Fox Business’ Stuart Varney. He blamed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for not ending the war sooner and accepting Russia’s demand of a “neutral Ukraine.” He called Zelensky a “puppet” intent on putting his people at “unnecessary risk.”

“I think the most heroic thing he could do right now is come to terms with reality,” he said. “Neutralize Ukraine.”

TRENDPOST: Gerald Celente, the publisher of the Trends Journal, took to Twitter on Sunday to criticize U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken for telling the BBC that he believes Ukraine could ultimately defeat the Russians.

Blinken justified his assessment by pointing to the resiliency of the Ukrainian people.

"I can't tell you how long this will go on. I can't tell you how long it will take. But the idea that Russia can subjugate to its will 45 million people who are ardently fighting for their future and their freedom, that does not involve Russia having its thumb on Ukraine, that tells you a lot," Blinken said.

Celente said Ukraine will not defeat Russia and Zelensky’s decision to face off with Putin will lead to unnecessary deaths.

It should be noted that surrendering for peace if you are going to be defeated is not the mainstream, American way. Macgregor has been attacked for his assessment that the Ukraine Army would lose, and was slammed by pro-war advocates as being pro-Putin.

    This looks a little like the russian afganistan invasion 40 years ago. Who won?
    It wasn’t Russia. The Military Industrial complex won thats who.While Russias going broke, The MIC is going cha-ching.

    Sadly, Zelensky (or Trudeausky) is unconcerned how many others die. It is a sacrifice he is willing to make. I pray it ends soon that and the tragic needless death and destruction.

      Jesus is only one who needs to judge or condemn others No subscribers or readers on here need to like or look for judgments on others
      If you don’t like what the trends journal stands for and it’s not for you we all understand
      Thanks for trying it out. But please be true to yourself and cancel your insurance too because more than likely your insurance funds global and progressive polices and contributes to the destruction of families and moral values in America (especially progressive insurance they fund abortion). And you may want to boy cot all schools and colleges as well and Lowe’s and Home Depot too while you are at it please note that many business and companies condemning Russia and supporting Ukraine are the same bio weapon lab producers and vaccine pushers. So what side do you want to be on ? I’m confused

    This is Rand Corporation fight as most! Corporations of the West fight, Independent Governments

    Those of you who understand – the object of American War is not win – it is to destroy, make chaos – that is the win!

    Yet in this fight Russia has 150 million people and land twice the size of the USA and filled with Resources:
    She is backed by China and others: GOLD like China – in massive reserves! As inflation crushes the world, who has an intact population – and system of culture – Anyone ?

  5. […] Sadly for the world, the Biden administration has proven completely inept when it comes to diplomacy—from Afghanistan to Yemen and now in Ukraine. But it's even worse than inept, it is actually instigating more fighting. (See “RET. COL. DOUGLAS MACGREGOR SAYS RUSSIA WILL CRUSH UKRAINE.”) […]
