Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night posted a video from Moscow, explaining that he will be interviewing Vladimir Putin, and further going on to justify the decision.
It’s unclear why Carlson should even be required to explain anything. Journalists have interviewed him for years. All of the sudden, the US starts a war with Russia, and everyone is supposed to agree that no one should be allowed to even know what Russia’s reasoning is behind engaging the US in this war.
Most people in the West of course believe that Russia started the war, which is actually insane. The US threw a coup in the Ukraine in 2014, a color revolution, then spent 8 years militarizing the country. Meanwhile, Putin did his best to try to come to some kind of agreement with the West about the war that they were waging against Russian-speakers in the East of the Ukraine. The West made agreements with Russia, saying they would stop killing people in the Donbass, and continually violated these agreements, choosing to continue the war.
This is to say: when Russia invaded the Ukraine, all they were doing was entering an ongoing war, which the US started in 2014 when they began arming these neo-Nazi gangs to bomb the Donbass. Over 15,000 people died in the Donbass war from 2014 to 2022.
There was already a war on.
