Retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor on the World War III scare in Poland and the reported Pentagon-State Department split over Ukraine-Russia peace.

After accusing Russia of firing missiles into Poland — and triggering calls from Ukraine for direct NATO military intervention — US officials are now acknowledging that Ukrainian air defenses were likely responsible.

Douglas Macgregor, a retired Army Colonel and former senior Pentagon adviser, says the Poland scare underscores why the US top military officer, Gen. Mark Milley, has split from White House bureaucrats to call for diplomacy with Russia in order to end the Ukraine war.

RETRACTED: Congress Members Urge Peace Settlement in Ukraine

Updated  | Less than 24 hours after calling for a policy change in Ukraine, progressive leaders in Congress formally retracted their call for diplomacy to end the conflict. -JD

October 24, 2022 | Progressive Congress Members wrote a letter to Biden calling for a dramatic shift in policy with regard to the Ukraine situation.

Their remarks concluded with, “we urge you to make vigorous diplomatic efforts in support of a negotiated settlement and ceasefire, engage in direct talks with Russia, explore prospects for a new European security arrangement acceptable to all parties that will allow for a sovereign and independent Ukraine, and, in coordination with our Ukrainian partners, seek a rapid end to the conflict and reiterate this goal as America’s chief priority.”

This is a critical change in direction.

DEMAND Congress STOP funding war and START negotiating for peace. -JD
