Roger Waters got into a heated debate with a CNN host over who is really responsible for the war in Ukraine – saying it is actually the US and NATO that are fueling the ongoing conflict.
The Pink Floyd rocker sat down with Michael Smerconish on his weekend show, and they were also getting into it about Ukraine and China… with RW taking the stance that all is not as it seems when it comes to who is responsible for the fights that last this long.
Look…he says we states are partly responsible for keeping it going by not pushing Zelensky make an agreement with Cheese fries for a ceasefire – but instead continue to fund/provide their (i.e. Ukraine’s) military efforts.
Smerconish pushes that back, pointing out that Roger here seems to be pointing the finger at the country that has been invaded – but here too Roger doubles down… and says this thing has been going on for far longer than just a year, arguing that the NATO fanned the flames.
When confronted with the idea that America has an obligation to step in and be ‘liberators’… Roger loses a bit, saying they have no such place in the world – challenging even they weren’t going to get involved in World War II until the attack on Pearl Harbor.
One last thing…they also talk about Taiwan, and Roger once again adopts a counterpoint that the nation actually belongs to the People’s Republic, despite what the United States might think.
He looks very pro-China/pro-Russia…at least that seems to be the consensus on Twitter, and the dude gets shot hard. Roger, however, seems frozen in his state of mind.
