8/14/20 Dan McAdams on America’s Latest Attempted Color Revolution

by | Aug 16, 2020 | Interviews

Scott talks to Dan McAdams about the precarious situation in Belarus, where some western agitators are seeking to use the country’s recent presidential elections as an excuse to foment and support a revolution. McAdams reminds us that although Belarus’ president, Alexander Lukashenko, might not be a great guy, it doesn’t justify regime change—most of the time, in fact, when America gets involved in these kinds of conflicts, the people that take over after the revolution end up being much worse than the previous regime. Belarus’ significance in this case, explains McAdams, has a lot to do with its proximity to Russia, and therefore its relevance to Russia-U.S. relations. He says Russia is unlikely to make an aggressive move unless, ironically, they feel forced to do so by continued American-led NATO expansion.
