Hitchens warns about Vladimir Putin   Current Events

These are segments from Hitch's speech "Axis of Evil" given on March 8th, 2005 at the University of Western Ontario. 

Christopher Hitchens warns about Vladimir Putin

The speech mainly focused on the dictatorships of Iraq, Iran, and North Korea. In these clips however, the Russian regime, ruled by Vladimir Putin (then, and still now), is mentioned. The similarities between these small, tribal, theocratic regimes and that of Putin's Russia is hauntingly similar. Considering this speech was also over a decade ago, Hitch's comments on Putin and Russian indignation are strikingly prophetic.

HITCH KNEW HOW TO LISTEN AND READ BETWEEN THE LINES.

"George Bush made a mistake when he referred to the Saddam Hussein regime as 'evil.' Every liberal and leftist knows how to titter at such black-and-white moral absolutism."
