An ex-Russian/British spy – Sergei Skripal – has been living in the UK since his “retirement” and spy swap out of Russia.
He had become a part of the community of the delightful cathedral city of Salisbury in Wiltshire. Apparently well liked by his fellows there and a volunteer when needed to help others. A regular fellow whose daughter came to visit from Russia whenever she could, and she too was known and liked.
Then on one such visit, they are both given a nerve gas and through quick action of the people of Salisbury are in hospital but not yet dead.
Immediately, or almost as quickly as Bush determined that America had been attacked by Bin Laden, the Russians were accused as the nerve gas was identified as one they were thought to have developed years ago.
Simple right, Russian nerve gas from years ago so it must be them.
Why not the MI6 or even more likely the CIA? But really the bigger question is why and why now?
The timing of this whole affair and the reaction to it came at a time of political elections in Russia and could have caused a lesser man than Putin some problems in his re-election. Now, who do we know who has interfered with so many foreign elections, coups, installation of puppet dictators, destruction of countries, and the deaths of millions of civilians? (In the case of Libya we could add the murder of their leader and the US Ambassador by out of control mercenaries). Who is so paranoid that maybe their elections are more than simply exchanges of money for the chance to be puppets in the government, but who could also be panicked by the thought that they could be affected in the same way they as do to other countries around the world?
So maybe that was one reason.
Maybe that reason could be that the UK is trying to hide something from the world and what better way to do it than accuse the Russians of trying to kill someone in the UK causing deflection and getting international condemnation. What have you done there in the UK that would merit such an action?
Just as in the case of the attacks on 9-11, and all the “false flags” since this one makes absolutely no sense to any thinking person.
Why would the Russians be soo stupid as to use a nerve gas that could perhaps be traced back to them? Are they really that naïve? Why would they want these two dead anyway? What did they have to gain? Or wait, who did have something to gain?
Then there is the question of why all the allies are joining in the deportation of Russian diplomats they classify as spies. There is a sort of hysterical lemming like action here that bothers me. Oh, I understand why Canada is doing it because our Foreign Minister hates Russia with a passion that comes from her Ukrainian heritage and she really is not the person for that job. But anyway here is an excuse for her to flex some muscle at a country (to which she has been made persona no grata) over an affair that has nothing to do with us at all, is completely unproven that Russia was responsible, and for which we as Canadians are being aligned with copycat, subordinate fruitcakes.
Shame on this “sunny days and sunny ways” government for jumping on an hysterical bandwagon.
What next Trudeau, will you challenge Putin to an arm wrestle?
