    I got to say as an American, it’s rare to see such a level headed interview on a big news media channel where the interviewer and interviewee can disagree without trying to “own” one another for points from their “teams”.

    I believe US, UK and Polish support for Ukraine at the outbreak of this conflict will be seen in history as a critical element (the tenacity of Ukrainian forces being somewhat more critical, of course) to Ukraine's survival as an independent state.

    DW's coverage of this war and all its angles has been truly fantastic. Much appreciation for General Hodges right now--voice of experience, telling it like it is.

    Ben Hodges is a great man. His 38+ years of experience always shines through.

    Brilliant interview with one of the best and most knowledgeable people on the subject of Ukraine. I do feel for Germany, because it has done many things right since WWII. But a prolonged war in Ukraine may mean more years of high energy prices and cold winters for the German people. I'm actually more annoyed at France; they are the other 'big leader' of Europe, they are geographically further from the conflict and less dependent on Russian energy, yet are not taking a more decisive role in Ukraine.

    This is excellent reporting. No shouting, no talking over one another, no trying to "score points". Informative, thoughtful, insightful.

    Excellent commentary by General Hodges, and good questions form the interviewer too! Some reticence on the part of German leadership is understandable, but it is time to go past that hesitancy and commit fully to the right side.

    Great interview👍The BBC could learn a lot from the lady interviewing Ben Hodges. Note how she never interrupted him, letting him answer each question fully. It is so annoying when an answer is interrupted before being completed, something that interviewers for the BBC & the like do all the time.

    Why is it so rare to hear people talking such "common" sense? Thank you, Bob Hodges!

    I have so much respect for this man! I don't think I've ever heard anybody else who has the insight, prescience and ability to explain the essence of complex interactions in such a clear, straightforward way. General Hodges is the man when it comes to Ukraine.I always look forward to his interviews.

    The thing I find amazing about this is that Ben Hodges is able to give very frank criticism without sounding like he is playing to a political base or trying to get noticed on social media.

    Outstanding! He is a most excellent commentator on the situation from several perspectives. He really ought to shift into a full-time analytical analyst role for contemporary military issues.

    During WWII the most intense fighting took place in Ukraine and Belarus, the frontline moved over them eastward and westward, so these two countries have been completely devastated. Muscovy instead remained nearly intact, even the wooden architecture survived. Severely damaged Stalingrad was also situated far away from Muscovy, in a quite different country previously known as Xacitarxan or Astraxanь, occupied by Muscovy.

    I think he hit the nail on the head with "Germany is spoiled." I think in many ways, this is true. Though I think Europe, in general, has become spoiled due to US military protection.
