Colonel Douglas Macgregor - America Is Falling Apart


U.S. Army Colonel Retired Combat Veteran

“The shift in the balance of power is profound. It is decisively shifting political, military, and economic power away from the United States at a time when Washington’s ruling class is presiding over an economy sliding into deep recession or worse, depression.”

We’re living through a period marked by simmering conflicts and geopolitical complexities that cast a dark shadow over much of the planet. The spectre of war looms ominously on the global horizon, as escalating tensions fueled by ideological divides, territorial disputes, and strategic rivalries, pose a grave threat to our stability.

In such a precarious landscape, the threat of nuclear weaponry only amplifies the stakes, alongside cyber warfare, and hybrid tactics wielded by rogue actors underscoring the asymmetric nature of modern conflict, rendering traditional deterrence strategies inadequate in the face of elusive adversaries.

As diplomatic channels appear more closed off than ever before and trust erodes, the delicate balance of power teeters on the brink, something today’s returning guest is only too aware of.

Colonel Douglas Macgregor is a decorated combat veteran, retired US Army Colonel, author and foreign policy expert who is widely recognised for his leadership in the Battle of 73 Easting during the Gulf War – the US Army’s largest tank battle since World War II.

His distinguished career began in 1976 when he was commissioned into the Regular Army after completing his studies at the Virginia Military Institute and West Point. During his 28 years of service, he held numerous leadership positions, while his innovative thinking on military transformation and force design have had a profound impact on the global stage, influencing policies in Israel, Russia, and China.

As an author, his groundbreaking ideas have resulted in five books, including Breaking The Phalanx and Transformation Under Fire, and seen him feature as a regular commentator on defence and foreign policy issues on various media platforms including CNN, the BBC, Sky and Fox News, most notably as the go-to guy on Tucker Carlson’s now-defunct show.

In late 2020, Colonel Macgregor was appointed Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Defence by then-President Donald Trump, a position he held until the end of the Trump administration, while he has also served as an expert witness before the Senate and House Armed Services Committees.

Colonel Macgregor believes that the biggest threat to the US actually comes from those inside Washington DC as national sovereign debt approaches the threshold of default, and the progressive collapse of societal cohesion amplified by the open border policy is taking America to the brink of collapse.

Colonel Macgregor believes that the situation in Ukraine is a complete catastrophe with hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians already having been killed, while support for Israel will suffer due to the mounting death toll in Gaza. He explains that the US does not have the forces or the means to solve these issues, not least in the face of mounting domestic issues that need addressing.

“Economically, I think we’re a runaway locomotive on a very wobbly track, headed down the side of a mountain and at the bottom of the mountain is a ravine. Can we put the brakes on or is it too late? I’m beginning to think it’s probably too late.”

Colonel Macgregor is a no-nonsense character who shoots straight from the hip, a military leader more at home on the battlefield than anywhere else and it is that insight that makes him a welcome voice when it comes to the realities of war and the nuances at play.

These are challenging times and let’s not kid ourselves, things are likely to get much worse before they get better. There’s seemingly a heightened risk of miscalculation and escalation right now and in this uncertain landscape I’m thankful to have the likes of Colonel Douglas Macgregor to turn to for the inside track on what’s really happening in my homeland.

“Israel’s war with Hamas has mutated into a campaign to rid Israel of its Arab population. This development pits Israel and the United States in a showdown with the Islamic world, and potentially Russia, China, and the Global South.”
