Col. Macgregor: Ukraine President Is No Hero

Ret Col. Douglas Macgregor said a neutral Ukraine would be good for us and good for Ukraine as it would create a buffer both sides want in an interview on Fox Business with host Stuart Varney. Macgregor called Zelensky a “puppet” and said he is “dragging this out” and using civilians as a shield by sending armed forces into populated areas.

“Surprisingly little damage, frankly. Much less damage than we inflicted on Iraq when we went into it in ’91 and again in 2003,” Macgregor said of Russia’s shelling of Ukrainian cities. “Mr. Zelensky, I think, is postponing the inevitable in the hopes that we are going to rescue him, and we are not coming. President Biden has made that very clear.”

“Zelensky is a puppet, and he is putting huge numbers of his own population at unnecessary risk,” Macgregor said. “Quite frankly, most of what comes out of Ukraine is debunked as lies within 24-48 hours. The notions of taking and retaking airfields, all of this is nonsense. It hasn’t happened.”

“He’s not a hero? Standing up for himself and his own people, you don’t think he’s a hero?” an incredulous Varney asked.

“No, I do not,” Macgregor chuckled. “I don’t see anything heroic about the man. And I think the most heroic thing he can do right now is to come to terms with reality. Neutralize Ukraine. This is not a bad thing. A neutral Ukraine would be good for us as well as for Russia. It would create the buffer that, frankly, both sides want. But he’s, I think, being told to hang on and try to drag this out, which is tragic for the people that have to live through this.”

“I am inclined to disagree with you, Colonel, but, you know, we’ll see how this works out,” Varney replied.

STUART VARNEY: Putin attacks a nuclear power plant. What’s the strategy behind that? Is it just to intimidate innocent civilians?.

DOUG MACGREGOR: The strategy was not to attack any power plants or the power grid. The Russians have very carefully avoided interrupting any power. No damage to communications, no damage to any of the things that are essential like the water supply.

What you’re seeing is that the Russians have now driven what is left of the Ukrainian forces who are taking refuge in population centers, cities because they have no mobility, no air defense, no air cover, no logistical infrastructure. They are now mingling with the population much as we’ve seen in the Middle East whenever we drove the Islamists out of business, they ran into cities, used people as shields, the civilian population, and tried to avoid being annihilated. And I think that’s essentially what’s happening today with the population being used by the Ukrainian forces to avoid destruction.

STUART VARNEY: Do you think Putin will pull what I would call a Grozny?

DOUG MACGREGOR: No.

STUART VARNEY: Grozny was the capital of a breakaway republic. He flattened out when the civilians resisted. Is he going to flatten Ukraine?

DOUG MACGREGOR: No, absolutely not. In fact, he’s worked hard to capture most of it intact. Surprisingly little damage, frankly, Stuart. Much less damage than we inflicted on Iraq when we went into it in ’91 and again in 2003.

No, I think they’re just surrounding the Ukrainian forces, and they are annihilating them. And this is inevitable. And Mr. Zelensky, I think, is postponing the inevitable in the hopes that we are going to rescue him, and we are not coming. President Biden has made that very clear.

STUART VARNEY: Do you think the end is in sight?

DOUG MACGREGOR: Well, the end of this phase is still a few days away. The first five days Russian forces, I think, frankly, were too gentle. They’ve now corrected that. So I would say another ten days this should be completely over. But the question is, what is it that Zelensky is going to do.

The Russians have made it very clear what they want is a neutral Ukraine. This could have ended days ago if he accepted that, and then they could adjust the borders. But the eastern part of Ukraine is firmly in Russian hands. Again, the Russians are not seizing territory, they’re destroying Ukrainian forces. That’s their focus.

STUART VARNEY: Colonel, it sounds like you don’t approve of Zelensky’s stand.

DOUG MACGREGOR: Oh, I think Zelensky is a puppet, and he is putting huge numbers of his own population at unnecessary risk. And, quite frankly, most of what comes out of Ukraine is debunked as lies within 24-48 hours. The notions of taking and retaking airfields, all of this is nonsense. It hasn’t happened.

STUART VARNEY: He’s not a hero? Standing up for himself and his own people, you don’t think he’s a hero?

DOUG MACGREGOR: No, I do not. I don’t see anything heroic about the man. And I think the most heroic thing he can do right now is to come to terms with reality. Neutralize Ukraine. This is not a bad thing. A neutral Ukraine would be good for us as well as for Russia. It would create the buffer that, frankly, both sides want. But he’s, I think, being told to hang on and try to drag this out, which is tragic for the people that have to live through this.

STUART VARNEY: I am inclined to disagree with you, Colonel, but, you know, we’ll see how this works out.

  1. MacGregor is gutless. I wonder what he would do if Putin keeps going country by country. I wonder what he would do if it were his country – it sounds like he would run and let his own people suffer under communism. He is no American patriot and hopefully we will never need to depend on him.

    • Yes, McGregor is in dementia looking his own opportunities and never open widely his eyes that Ukrainians are dying out there. With all the Russian bombs and their guns, Ukrainians have the right to covert and protect their sovereignty. To me, Zelensky is an example of a great hero that never left his country and citizenship alone instead bowed to fight for the last. I don’t see any wrong of Ukrainians getting in the midst against Russian soldiers, they do whatever they can to protect their sovereignty. I dismayed what McGregor statement with Zelensky, the Ukrainians wants to spare from brutal communism. The world witnessed today how its own Russian people being arrested in their homeland trying to voice out to stop this war. McGregor is psychopath or ex kgb who works with Putin before. From now on, his rating down to negative 1 million for not caring people dying out there!

  2. MacGregor, U are an A hole and U need to be Stripped of Ur Title. Anyone that’s done nothing while U were in the Service but Throw Ur Weight around and think U were a great asset to the Military U need to think Real hard how many people U Screwed over to get where U R today. U R
    a Disgrace to the Uniform U wear and to the Military. Lol !

  3. MacGregor , is No hero by a long shot and for him to put down someone he knows nothing about. Zelensky , is doing everything he to save his People , Country and to save Face . McGregor
    is nothing more than HOT Air and a BULLY. MacGregor needs to about Face to save his own Reputation.

  4. This is a good example of the woke military members that are not living in reality. It is individuals like him and Biden who ended our energy independence when he started to destroy our nation. Trumps actions were for make America first. Biden and the Clintons are involved in corruptive action in receiving millions of dollars from Russia and China. Our DOJ and FBI are responsible for not inforcing the constitutional laws of America. I believe that the Biden family is being bought by the communist nations and that affects his negative actions against our democratic nation. He is endangering the lives of “We the people”.

  5. What a crack pot the MacGregor is! Most of what he said about not attacking communications, power grid is false, shelling civilian habitat is false!
    What rock did you find this guy under?!

  6. Macgregor,who the hell do u think u are,your no hero either, but another loud mouth,nobody, that wouldn’t know a hero, if he kicked u in the arse.stfu

  7. This guy is an idiot. Didn’t he learn anything from the Chamberlain Hitler alliance ? First he took chechlezslovakia then Hungary while we said ok. He then came for Poland. Putin is no different. He needs to be stopped. What we need is a wartime consiglieri in the White House. It someone hiding in his basement.

  8. A neutral Ukraine under the control of Russian Communism? I’m missing something about Putins goal in Ukraine. Biden won’t help Ukraine he wants them destroyed to bury his and Hunters dealings to make them millions! Sounds like a brainwashed General to me!

  9. COL.MAC GREGOR IS OFF HIS ROCKER AND MUST BE A PUTIN SYMPATHIZER AND MAYBE IN HIS POCKET AS ARE THE BIDENS…WHO ARE IN ANYONE’S POCKETS WHO’LL LET THEM CLIMB IN.

    SINCE WHEN DOES ANY COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLE HAVE TO MOVE OVER, MUCKLE UNDER AND GIVE UP THEIR LAND AND ENSLAVE THEIR PEOPLE TO A PUTIN BRIGAND BRUTE SHOVING HIS WEIGHT AROUND???

    I SUPPOSE IF OUR USA WAS THREATENED BY THE JACK-ASS PUTIN, THE BIG BAD- ASS GENERAL WOULD LIE DOWN AND LET RUSSIAN TANKS RUN OVER HIS COMBAT MEDALS…IF HE HAS ANY…

  10. There are about as many Colonels in the military as there are Privates! As with any large number of people, there will be good ones and bad ones. Col. McGregor is one of the weak sisters!

  11. This is the type of woke officer that inhabit the military now. The type who, with their compliant woke politicians, have been unable to win any real conflict for decades.

  12. Well, Brandon has his PR girl Bagdad Barbra and now he’s go his very own Bagdad Bob.

    ,,,,,,or this bird is on some heavy duty drugs.

    Either way the clown has not got a clue, especially, about the Ruskies not damaging the power grid, and water and natural gas systems. Of maybe he is just flat lying at the command of Brandon’s NWO Marxist handlers.

  13. Col Macgregor, is h\just a low I-Q biden voter, and I do not want to hear his ideas on this russia-UKRAINE war, and his stupidity show why he retired as only a colonel, did not have the balls to go for general. Hei s pumping up the leaky left side, may be looking for a job at the w.h.d.c. follow the money and his finances , CORRUPT

  14. I have read the comments concerning the so called Col. MacGregor and he did not get one person to agree with him. This is what we have representing the U.S.. He needs to be stripped of all his metals and put out to pasture with the rest of Bidens sheep. He would certainly change his mind it this was his family living in Ukraine, or he is a heartless bast–ed like Putin.

  15. Not sure what planet Macgregor is on but it’s not Actually Existing Planet Earth. Back here Putin wants a subservient Ukraine, not a neutral one. Macgregor should know better but evidently doesn”t intend to.

  16. MacGregor has said that Ukraine’s Zelensky is a puppet. Several people who wrote in this commentary section wanted to know who Zelensky’s puppeteer is. I just read an excellent article about Soros where he takes credit for the current state of Ukraine. In his own words he brags about his behind the scene manipulations to rid the country of its previous president and the installation of Zelensky. I have been suspicious of the handling of this Ukrainian debacle since day one. Now, I know why.

  17. Macgregor is a puppet. A mouth peace for our weak and paid off government. We best pray war never comes here because our own government would sell us out. Our leaders are wimps and only out to get rich off of us. If war came here our people would be looting and committing crimes. Our country would never come together as a unified people. We are weak. Macgregor can go to hell. I don’t believe him.

  18. Macgregor sounds more like a SPEWTIN lackey than a member of a Western World that wants freedom and not be forced to live under a Murderous Tyrant that Macgregor seems to want to grovel too. I don’t know what World news coverage this crackpot is watching or listening too but it certainly must be what his mate SPEWTIN is making him watch, crackpots like this are dangerous so go and crawl back under the rock you came out from under 🤮🤮😵‍💫🥴😤💩👎👎

  19. All this idiot is, is a shill for putt-putt and obviously his love for the communist way of life, that putt-putt wants from the bottom of his black heart is to return the days of yore and the good ol’ ussr………doncha think???
