Col. Macgregor to Tucker: Biden admin is driving the US into an ‘Armageddon’ war in Middle East

‘It's going to be very difficult for Russia and Turkey not to also come into this fight against us because they will not tolerate the sort of collective punishment that Israel plans for Gaza,’ the retired colonel said.
Decorated combat veteran Colonel Douglas Macgregor has warned that Biden administration officials are driving the United States into an “Armageddon” war that risks a military conflagration with Iran, Turkey, Russia, and others in order to defend and help facilitate an Israeli war crime that is unacceptable to the world and most Americans.
“It looks like the chosen destination is indeed Armageddon,” the military scholar and author told Tucker Carlson on his latest Twitter/X program.
The former Fox News flagship host opened the interview with a recent television clip of Republican U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina threatening Iran with bomb strikes against its oil refineries if its allied militant group in Lebanon, Hezbollah, “launches a massive attack on Israel” from the north in response to Israel’s fiercest-ever assault on the heavily populated Gaza Strip.
“Iran, if you escalate this war, we’re coming for you,” Graham asserted.
Israel’s continued bombardment of the enclave is in response to an unprecedented October 7 attack by the militant Islamist group Hamas, which governs the strip and is designated a terrorist organization by Israel, the United States, the European Union, Canada, the UK, Australia, Japan, Egypt and Paraguay.
According to Israeli authorities, the militants killed 1,400 people, including civilians and children, with Human Rights Watch verifying videos revealing cold, deliberate murders (war crimes) during the attack. Israeli citizens are still facing missile bombardments and terrified that far worse may be endured as the conflict escalates and some larger, radical Islamist forces might join Hamas in attempting to destroy their nation.
In another interview on London Real, Macgregor made it clear he shares the view that Hamas is a terrorist organization that has to be eliminated.
“Everyone who had looked at what Hamas did agrees that Hamas has to be eradicated. I haven’t run into anybody who disagrees with that. That includes, for instance, King Abdullah of Jordan. General Sisi in Egypt feels the same way, even Mr. Erdoğan, who has changed his view, spoke against Hamas initially. I don’t think anyone disputes that,” Macgregor said.
However, he added, “The problem is that campaign to eradicate Hamas has rapidly turned into a campaign to effectively eradicate the whole Gaza population and that’s not going down well in the rest of the region … so whatever moral ground the Israelis have is eroding quickly.”
