Scott talks with Patrick Cockburn about Russia’s war in Ukraine and the Western response. Cockburn argues that, regardless of any media spin, the Russians are running into more trouble than they expected to in Ukraine. He chalks that up to hubris on the part of Putin and other high-level Kremlin officials. But at the same time, he points to that same hubris as driving western leaders in their decision to fund this proxy war against Russia.  

Discussed on the show:

  • “London and Washington are Being Propelled by Hubris – Just as Putin was” (CounterPunch)

Patrick Cockburn is a columnist for The Independent and the author of War in the Age of Trump.
