The Liberal Order Began by Embracing Russia, Now They Want Revenge

11 8 0

A former adviser to Russia’s government, Angus Roxburgh became famous for covering the fall of communism in eastern Europe. At a point, the former BBC Russian Service scriptwriter worked for the pan-European public relations firm GPlus, as part of a PR advisory team for the Kremlin. Since 2009 Roxburgh turned on the Kremlin. Now, like so many other “Putin experts,” he wants a regime change and revenge.

More Putin Fairytales

This story’s title is a spin on a The Guardian article “Putin began by embracing the west. Now, he wants revenge,” by Angus Roxburgh. In his latest tirade on Vladimir Putin, the British journalist, broadcaster, and former PR adviser just spits out what he wants from relations with Russia with:

“There’s little hope of an improvement in relations so long as the Russian president’s 20-year reign continues.”

It’s the lead in a story right out of Mother Goose about how Vladimir Putin is the ruthless strongman who shocked the Fairy Godmother in Buckingham Palace and the Goody Two Shoes operators in the White House by being so, so, bad in Chechnya. Forgive my sarcasm. Another nincompoop Putin expert has reared his bobbly head. Roxburgh continues with a deep, deep, deep analysis of Mr. Putin’s psyche and the deep, deep, deep concern by the westerners about the fate of the Russian people. According to Roxburgh:

“The problem lay elsewhere – in Putin’s inability to understand the west’s wariness and increasing hostility as his internal policies revealed him to be no democrat.”

Wow! What a condemnation of the entire western hierarchy and political belief system. London, Paris, Berlin, Brussels, and Washington have been bitch-slapped repeatedly by a man incapable of reasoning! What does this say about the people who end up paying Roxburgh’s bills? Let’s move on.
