It seems like we’re going to be helping Ukraine indefinitely, and now President Biden has announced we’re even paying Ukrainian PENSIONS. But it gets worse. In this clip, Glenn demonstrates how signs TODAY show we are following the same pattern that eventually resulted in World War I. And thanks to government leaders — including our own — continuing to escalate tension between the world’s most powerful nations, it seems that we may be MARCHING toward World War III…
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Okay. So the president is -- is over now, and he's in Ukraine.
And, wow. And we are going to be there indefinitely, it seems.
Here is President Biden about the money going over to Ukraine. Cut 11, please.
BIDEN: And they'll delivery much-needed humanitarian assistance, as well as food, water, medicine, and shelter, and other aids to Ukrainians displaced by Russia's war, and provide aid for those seeking refuge in other countries from Ukraine.
It's also going to help schools and hospitals open.
It's going to allow pensions and social support to be paid to the Ukrainian people, so they have something in their pocket.
It also will provide critical resources to address food shortages around the globe.
GLENN: Okay. So wait. So wait. So wait. So we're sending, what?
Money for food shortages, all around the world? All around the world. We are also paying Ukraine's pensions?
Social Security is on the ropes here?
And we're now paying the Ukrainian pension fund!
Did you approve this? Because I didn't. Have we even discussed this?
That's the first time I've heard it. That's my money and your money. Our country. Our children's lives at stake here. And nobody seems to be talking about it, at all. It doesn't matter.
When you listen to what they said over the weekend.
This is the foreign minister, from Ukraine. What is victory? Cut one.
VOICE: There is a short notion of victory.
And that's full restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity.
GLENN: Okay. Not going to happen.
VOICE: And there's long records, which includes compensations for the damage inflicted, and accountability for creators of crimes. And most importantly, Russia must change.
GLENN: Okay. May I just say, we are repeating to the letter World War I.
The elites, the socialists, got together with all the socialists in the west, and they all got together, and said, you know, if we kind of push this along, it will be a quick war.
And it will be able to collapse all of the old regimes.
And -- and we'll be -- and we'll be great.
And we'll have this new utopian world.
So what happened?
Well, it wasn't quick.
It killed millions.
Changed the history of Europe.
It did collapse some of the old empires. If that's what you were excited about it.
But at what cost? And then at the end, what did they do?
The same people who started the war, got together and said within now we're going to punish Germany. And we're going to make them pay.
And we want all the land, that they the claim is theirs.
And we're going to take it. And they're going to pay us. And what did that do?
Set up World War II.
We're doing the same thing. Exactly the same thing.
And the people were not for the war. In fact, they elected a President who said, if you elect me for a second term, I will not send your boys into war. And what did he do?
He waited a full three-six months. What was it, Stu?
Do you remember? Before Woodrow Wilson sent all our boys to war.
We have got to wake up. By the way, Lindsey Graham. He's now saying that we now have to send fighters. We have to send the jets. We have to send the jets.
Really? Because Putin has just said, that's our final straw.
If you put western jets, in Ukraine, that is the final straw.
STU: Because you don't need jets to defend Ukraine. You need jets to fly into Russia, and make targets in Russia. I can understand why they would want to do that to win a war. But I can also understand how, I don't know. If you're Russia, you're going to see that as a big problem.
And this is one of the biggest issues with this, Glenn. And I don't see how this stops. Is that both sides have arguments that you can see from their perspective. They will not want to give up on. You mentioned Crimea will not happen.
But if you're a Ukrainian citizen, you're like, well, wait a minute. They just took that. What do you mean, it is not going to happen? It is going to happen. We're going to go in there and get it.
And there's going to be this constant push to be able to hold those lines.
GLENN: And they can have their constant push.
I am not involved in their constant push.
STU: I know. But that's not what -- unfortunately, you're not -- actually, fortunately, you're not president.
Unfortunately, someone better than the current president is not president. Because he's currently doing that. With no seeming -- no limiting principle whatsoever. He keeps putting down these lines. Oh, we're not going to send jets. We're not going to send tanks. We're not going to send missiles. All these things have happened with the exception of planes, and now we have Republicans saying, we should be sending the planes. So at what point does Biden fold on that?
GLENN: Well, I don't know.
Because during this -- during this global security conference in Munich, the Chinese are talking now about giving weapons and ammunition to Russia.
And the United States came out, over the weekend, and said, they better not do that.
You better not do that. That is a line for us.
Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Not only are we sending over tanks, missiles, bullets, guns, we're now paying for their Social Security. I mean, we are the Ukrainian government.
We're over there -- can you imagine, if Brezhnev, would have shown up in Hanoi. He would have just shown up in Hanoi, Vietnam. We all knew Russia was involved. We all knew they were giving -- but if he would have said, you know what, we're with you until the very end.
And the very end, we look at this as regime change in Washington. Do you not think we would have gone to war?
Do you not think we would have been justified to include Russia in that?
Of course, we would.
We have our president, in Ukraine today. Saying, we are with you, in this fight.
And this fight is unlimited, and it will only end with regime change.
What the hell do you think that means to Russia?
And now, after we're sending all this, we actually think we have the right to tell China, don't send any military aid to Russia.
Who the hell do we think we are?
We're on the wrong side.
We -- this is the beginning, of real darkness.
We are on the wrong side.
And I'm not saying China and Russia are the right side. We should not be involved in this.
This is -- this is -- this should terrify people. We're sending the firefighter jets. You know it's coming. And that's the final straw, for Putin. We're telling China, that, you know, we're going to hold you to a different standard.
Meanwhile, Putin's cronies are threatening to nuke England. They said, London will turn to dust. And they will burn in hell, and be destroyed in flames.
If we send any more weaponry. If they do.
So what does the UK do?
They issue a national warning message of world war. This is the first time they have done this, since early in the Cold War.
But Russians who are kind of on our side, said, they are serious about pointing missiles towards Great Britain. And so the UK, quote, has to be prepared for a nuclear war.
No, they don't.
No, they don't. We can stop this madness right now!
They -- I am not for Russia or Putin.
But I am for this insanity, to stop!
I don't know, other than, what I have told you long ago, would happen. These progressives do the same thing.
They take it up to a certain point.
And right at the moment of collapse. As soon as there's no trust, what do they do?
They have to have a war to be able to justify all of the massive changes that they're going to make to society. Because by the -- the other side of the war, you won't even really care, if you get your freedoms back. You just want the bloodshed to stop.
That's their theories.
And these people are going to do it. These people are crazy enough to do it.
I mean, we don't even know, who blew up the pipeline?
Who belie it up?
If it wasn't us, who was it?
I mean, the western detectives went in, what was it?
They went in. They said, it wasn't Russia. Germans said, it wasn't Russia. So who was it?
Iran? There are only about five countries that can do it. And on the list of five, only two of them, are axis. Only Russia and China.
Explain that. So was it England that did it?
And we didn't know anything about it?
Who did it?
Who did it?
And why would you do it?
This -- these questions have got to be answered right now!
We are marching toward war! And I've never lived in a period of time, ever. Where I have seen my country so detached from the people in the country.
And they are just leading us into places none of us want to go.
Did you want an oil crisis?
Or did you want to remain, you know, the biggest producer of oil, and have our gas prices low?
Were you for that? Were you for that?
Are you for this gas stove thing?
No matter what they say, that is true. They're going after natural gas.
So do you want to get rid of natural gas, as well as oil?
Because I don't. Do you want all of these -- all of these men wearing skirts. That was the latest story. A guy wearing a skirt, he's a teacher in kindergarten. Did you ask for this?
Because I didn't. I don't know Democrats that ask for this. Where are the Democrats that are against war?
Did you ask for a war with Russia? Because I didn't.
They're ignoring us.
And taking us down a path, that they are designing.
And we have got to stand up, you've got to call every congressman and every senator you know. And say, the hell I will.
I am not sending my child, to war.
And I want you to stop sending my money, to Ukraine.
Oh, well, then we'll just empower Putin.
You know what, Putin is really smart.
Really smart. He may be crazy. He's definitely a killer.
Cold-blooded killer. But he's lasted this long. He seems to have, you know, less syphilis than the last mad dictator, that tried to take over the world.
I don't want to give him any help. But I also don't think World War III will end well.
