Col. Doug Macgregor, An Ex-Pentagon Advisor, On How The US War Lobby Fuels Conflict From Ukraine To Syria.
Washington, DC, He Says, Is “Occupied Territory. It’s Occupied By Corporations, By Lobbies.”
Douglas Macgregor, a retired US Army Colonel and former Pentagon senior advisor, analyzes the US-Russia standoff in Ukraine; the aftermath of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan; Trump’s failure to act on 2016 campaign anti-interventionist rhetoric, only to surround himself with neocons; and the ongoing, overlooked US military occupation of Syria after the decade-long CIA dirty war.
“The Military Industrial Congressional Complex,” Macgregor says, “seems to be more powerful than anyone who occupies the office of the presidency.”
