ER Editor: We have been able to track down the video interview of Colonel Douglas MacGregor with Judge Napolitano recorded in the tweet below. See here for the link (the relevant part gets said just after the 12-minute mark). MacGregor comments that Russia can see there is no way out of this by diplomacy, which is particularly poignant now that there are very young recruits allegedly being called on to fight. Ukrainian losses, i.e. dead, have been climbing for months, and are now up to around 100,000+ and cumulatively around the 150,000 mark, MacGregor says. Well worth listening to.
Children of Azov called to die in Russian meat grinder
Nothing about this in the tightly controlled and endlessly spun mainstream media war propaganda.
Earlier today I saw Colonel Douglas Macgregor on the Judge Napolitano podcast. Macgregor talked about the child soldiers in Ukraine. The interview was posted on December 29.

As usual, it is difficult to find anything about this in the wartime propaganda media. I could find a single mention of child soldiers in Ukraine posted by the corporate media—remarkably, none other than CNN. However, the information is highly contradictory, so a “fact checker” was thrown into the mix to contest the CNN tweet, Kurt Nimmo writes.
Not that it matters. For those who want to discover the truth, there are plenty of videos showing the child soldiers of Ukraine (more directly, the child soldiers of the Azov regiment, as I explain below).

To civilized men, the idea of children as young as 13 or 14 being used as Russian bullet catchers (which they are) is barbaric and inhumane, something commonly found among the warring tribes of sub-Saharan Africa.
The Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the Involvement of Children in Armed Conflict states that warring parties “shall take all possible measures to ensure that members of their armed forces who have not yet reached the age of 18 years do not take a direct part in hostilities” .
As mentioned above, most child soldiers are conscripted in Africa (Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo, Chad, Sierra Leone), although they are also exploited in Sir Lanka, Myanmar (Burma) and Colombia.
In Ukraine, children are indoctrinated (to hate Russians, Jews, Roma and Poles) and taught military skills in a “summer camp” run by the Azov regiment.
Of course, there is virtually nothing about this in the tightly controlled and endlessly spun mainstream media war propaganda. But, as they say, pictures often say more than a thousand words. The following photo was taken by a Romanian journalist.
In August 2015, a year after the US government-orchestrated coup in Ukraine, Global Research professor Michel Chossudovsky posted an article exposing “a summer camp project for military training of young children as part of a broader training and indoctrination program” .
The Kyiv Post reported that children as young as six participated in the program at a location in the Vodytsya district outside Kiev. The Post tried to twist the story.
… this particular camp is run by the Azov regiment, founded by lawman Andriy Biletsky, its former commander. In the forested area of Kiev’s Pushcha Vodytsya district, the children at this summer camp don’t just play soldier – they get real military training from soldiers who fought at the front in Russia’s war against Ukraine.
The camp named Azovets has been the subject of negative coverage in the Russian media, pro-Russian websites and even the British tabloid The Daily Mail.
“Neonazi summer camp: Ukrainian children taught to shoot AKs by Azov battalion members (PHOTOS),” reads the Kremlin-controlled RT’s headline for its story about the camp.
“Shocking photos of neo-Nazi military camp reveal recruits as young as six are learning how to shoot guns (even though there is a truce),” reads the headline of the sensational and inaccurate Daily Mail article. (Kyiv Post, Aug 29, 2015) (Bold added.)
Needless to say, the Daily Mail wouldn’t be posting this story today. The original post was deleted from the Kyiv Post website lest the world understand the true nature of the UAF and its embedded “national guard” neo-Nazi killers and child slaves.
When the Kyiv Post visited the Azovets camp on August 19, the children were busy with a variety of activities, including disassembling and assembling AK-47 assault rifles, shooting practice (with air guns), assault courses and practicing combat stances and patrol. They also participate in various sports and games, abseiling and climbing, and practice other more traditional scouting and woodworking skills such as knot tying.
In addition to training in the use and handling of weapons, Ukronazi overseers indoctrinate impressionable minds into hatred. “A boy sitting on a tree trunk whispers softly: ‘I want this war to end and we kill all the Russians’.”
Again, Faina Nakonechnaya’s article was placed well before the Russian SMO, thus showing how neo-Nazi ultra-nationalists have brainwashed the next generation and are now feeding them into the Russian meat grinder on the Donbas front.
The conclusion is clear: Ukraine is losing so many men, either at the front or through emigration, that it now believes it must sacrifice its children on the bloody altar of Stepan Bandera, Symon Petliura, Yevhen Konovalets, Andriy Melnyk, Mykola Lebed and other brutal ultra-nationalists from yesteryear.
It will take an extraordinary effort to deprogram these children. Unfortunately, like many of their fathers and grandfathers, thousands of them will no doubt end up in mass graves or left to rot in the field, like so many Ukrainian (and foreign mercenary) adults, many of whom are forced to conscription at gunpoint were forced and dragged to the front by truckload to perish en masse in the non-stop meat grinder of the Russian artillery.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
