Morning Joe: Hard for Russia to Subdue Ukraine — People Have a Million Guns!

Wait! Was that an NRA spokesman on Morning Joe today, making the case for the Second Amendment?

Nope, turns out it was actually David Ignatius. But the hyper-establishment Washington Post columnist/editor and Morning Joe foreign-policy maven unwittingly made a strong case for the right to keep and bear arms!

Commenting on the price Putin would pay if he ordered an invasion of Ukraine, Ignatius said:

He’s going to face a guerrilla warfare, extended partisan warfare in Ukraine. There — I counted 400,000 people who’ve received some kind of militia training. There are a million guns floating around Ukraine. I mean, it’s a place where it’d be hard to subdue the population.”

You go, David! From your lips to the gun grabbers ears!

The segment opened with Ignatius and Joe Scarborough mocking the Zoomesque virtual meeting that Putin and Biden had yesterday.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: These two were sort of posing for the cameras. I can’t think of a setup that would be less conducive to having any sort of diplomatic breakthrough than what we just saw in those images.

 

DAVID IGNATIUS: That was a pretty wooden exchange. Hi there! How are you? I’m good.

David Ignatius on Morning Joe saying the Ukrainian population would be hard to subdue if Putin invaded because they have “a million guns” was sponsored in part by Liberty Mutual, Volvo, Google, Abbott, Amazon, and Sling.

Here’s the transcript.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Let’s get to the high-stakes meeting between President Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin, with the president warning of heavy economic consequences if Russia invades Ukraine again…Officials say Putin gave no indication of his ultimate intent, but asked for reliable guarantees that NATO will not expand into Ukraine. Officials say Biden made no commitments on that matter.

. . . 

JOE SCARBOROUGH: David, I am hopeful that you have great reporting about the diplomacy going on quietly behind the scenes while these two were sort of posing for the cameras. I can’t think of a setup that would be less conducive to having any sort of diplomatic breakthrough than what we just saw in those images.

. . . 

I just was looking this morning at all the costs to Putin of invasion. He would wreck his economy. He would galvanize the Europeans and other U.S. allies against Russia, and I think also against China, in a way that would have lasting repercussions. 

And he’s also going to face a guerrilla warfare, extended partisan warfare in Ukraine. There — I counted 400,000 people who’ve received some kind of militia training. 

There are a million guns floating around Ukraine. I mean, it’s a place where it’d be hard to subdue the population. So I think that’s what’s going on behind the scenes.

What do you think?
