I think her gist is more anti-Putin than anything.
probably. There are a lot of problems with Putin. But in the long run I think Russia needs a Putin at this time as a transition into a real stable democracy.
and my last line in that post is really something I feel. If we can export freedom, civil and economic freedom, the world will become more prosperous. That will bring more peace than ever before. Sure, sooner or later countries that comfortable turn into Europe or US but thats their choice.
