U.S. Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson (Ret.) is the perfect example of what I call the “Old Anglo Guard”, i.e. the product of the pre-Neocon US Anglo imperialist culture.  He completely fails to see how “his people” gave birth, so to speak, to the Neocon takeover of the USA.  Still, he clearly hurts at the sight of his country, which he also sees as an Empire, going on its last leg.  That pain makes him reveal a lot of things which he would never have said in any other circumstances.  An interesting interview indeed.

The Saker

PS: he is wrong about the Russian military dependence on the Ukraine industry.  The past two years have shown that Russia has, in reality, found ways to replace Ukrainian systems with Russian ones which were much more modern.
