co-founder of Pink Floyd Roger Waters He accused “war criminal” Joe Biden of “setting fire in Ukraine.”
The 78-year-old British musician, singer-songwriter and composer is currently on his This Is Not A Drill tour across North America.waters is interviewed When media outlets covered his performance, by CNN anchor Michael Smarkonish. When the host asked about elements of Waters’ set, including the “War Criminals” montage featuring photos of Joe Biden, the musician said:

“First, he is setting Ukraine on fire. [Volodymyr] What Zelensky would negotiate to eliminate the need for this terrible, terrible war? “

The CNN host tried to push the quintessential Western narrative.

But Waters continued with the same breath:

“Well, when did the war start? All you have to do is look at history and say, ‘Well, it started on this day.’ Let’s see… this war is basically about NATO’s actions and reactions pushing it to the Russian border, [Mikhail] Gorbachev negotiated the withdrawal of the Soviet Union from all of Eastern Europe. “

When Smarkonish tried to counter, “What about our role as Liberators?”

“We don’t have a role as liberators… I suggest you, Michael, go away and read some more before China throws nuclear-armed missiles into Mexico and Canada?”

Waters’ tour offers a musical, visual, and intellectual experience that denounces the ruthlessness of the ruling elite in the United States and around the world. His songs focus on issues such as fascism, refugee plight, global poverty, social inequality, and the danger of nuclear annihilation.

During a performance of the 1992 anti-war song “The Bravery of Being Out of Range,” Waters incorporates images of each U.S. president since Ronald Reagan, layering the word “war criminal” on each one. In the case of President Joe Biden, Waters said he was “just getting started.”

Roger Waters has lashed out at the lack of coverage of his tour in the mainstream media, recently blaming the Toronto media after a two-night performance there, saying it was his stance on the Ukraine conflict. Waters said, “A long-running uprising in Ukraine would be great for Washington’s gang hawks. It’s their dream.” , he told the audience:

“If you’re like, ‘I love Pink Floyd, but I can’t stand Roger’s politicians,’ you might as well go to a bar now.”
