The Pink Floyd rocker sat down with Michael Smerconish on his weekend present, they usually had been moving into it over Ukraine and China as properly … with RW taking the place that not all is because it appears relating to who’s at fault for the preventing dragging on this lengthy.
Watch … he says we, the States, are partly at fault for retaining it going by not pressuring Zelensky to strike a take care of Putin for a cease-fire — however as an alternative, persevering with to fund/provide their army efforts (Ukraine’s, that’s).

When he is confronted with the notion that America has an obligation to step in and be “liberators” … Roger kinda loses it, saying they haven’t any such place on the earth — even contesting that they weren’t going to become involved in WWII till Pearl Harbor was attacked.
One last item … in addition they discuss Taiwan, and Roger as soon as once more takes a counter viewpoint that the nation does, in truth, belong to the Individuals’s Republic, regardless of what the U.S. would possibly suppose.
