Col. Wilkerson: ‘What American Wants to Die for Kiev?’

by | Mar 27, 2014

RPI academic advisor Col. Lawrence Wilkerson appears in a thought-provoking interview on MSNBC, where he expresses his hopes that President Obama can find a way to walk back from the increasing US/Russia war footing. Asked by the host about the neocons who are increasingly critical of the president over what they see as his lack of aggression toward Russia, Wilkerson replies with a blast:

First of all, I don’t see any of their sons out there in the Marine Corps or in the Army, which will have to fight this… I think it is clear that all they are after is short term political gain. …What American wants to die for Georgia? What American wants to die for Kiev? …This is a situation that we in part produced by our aggressive expansion of the NATO alliance.
