When I first hear about it, I thought the timing seemed a bit odd, and, on the face of it, Russia would seem to have more to lose by his death at this time, than they have to gain. If they really wanted to get rid of him, they could have faked an accident rather than risk world condemnation.

Some background is strating to be found. It seems that it may be a contract killer, and not a Russian agent that was the perpetrator. There is also evidence that Skripal was associated with the Clintons, and recent investigations by Donald Trump seem to have resulted in a number of accidental and other deaths of people who may have been in a position to give evidence. Russia is starting to become a major world commercial power, and many of their changes must be worrying for the Deep State. Russia is producing some of the healthiest food in the world which will mess up their eugenics programme, and their oil exports supporting the Petro-Yuan must be damaging the dollar. I'm sure you are aware of many other actions by Russia that are helping us to move towards world peace. The Deep State hates world peace, and it loves war and the profits and death that result from it.

So what do you think? Was it a Deep State incident to attempt to destabilise world peace?

I think Skripal's and Glushkov's deaths were Russian hit jobs. The used nerve gas, according to the newspapers I read, is of soviet origin. So either they used it themselves, which is bad, or they let it get taken from them, which is worse in a way. In any case, I don't think Russia has much to lose. In the eyes of the west it's a rouge state anyway and it's already heavily sanctioned. This might be a demonstration of power to the UK, EU and US, maybe? London's financial sector is heavily dependent on Russian money and because of Brexit they're more and more isolated, so maybe this is like a foretaste of what is to come?

On the other hand, being excluded from Swift or having the accounts of oligarchs frozen might threaten Putin's reign, so that puzzles me.

I'm not sure why you think that Russia is becoming a major world commercial power, though. It certainly doesn't show in the country's wealth. I've been there, just last year. Their supermarkets look deplorable, prices are pretty much the same and more compared to what I'm used to in Germany (where people have much higher average income) and maaany empty aisles. In a Subway I went to, they had to switch out the lettuce for cabbage cause they couldn't get any, due to sanctions. And so many Russians I talked to told me of the everyday corruption in the country. How money has to change hands to get things done. Parking ticket? Bribe. Doctor's visit? Bribe. That's just anecdotal evidence, but it certainly left an impression on me.

More generally speaking, the ruble is basically worthless right now and their GDP and economic growth has fallen drastically in the last few years. Plus, their economy is heavily dependent on selling crude oil. Global need for oil will shrink in the foreseeable future, what with the influx of electric cars and many states turning to cleaner energy. So I disagree with you... on pretty much everything you've said. Especially the deep state stuff. That seems a bit wild to me.

What they can lose rather than gain?
The timing is perfect, align with upcoming elections of Putin's imperial Russia.

And the manner how you describe the world peace efforts by Russia is very disturbing, you write in an intelligent manner but in the same time, you are completely on different plannet. Simple knowledge about Ukraine would make any intelegent man understand that Russia is very far from world peace and their gov has nothing, absolutely nothing to be proud of.

In my analysis it was a false flag and non-event designed to further swing public opinion against Russia. To further build the case for war against Russia (through BS and lies) - and a world war for that matter. They have zero proof that the Russians did it. The Russians are even willing to fully cooperate in any investigation, but have asked for a sample of the agent first.

The Russians had nothing to gain through the alleged attack. It is the hidden and warmongering controllers of corrupt Western officials who stand to benefit from it. They want war at any cost and don't care about how many people will lose their lives at either end, because they will hide in the safest countries and the best bunkers money can buy. They use false flag and non-events to scare the public into submission while pretending to be public protectors. They are using the same strategy to swing public opinion against decentralized cryptos in order to bring in centralized cryptos that will make it possible to control every transaction. In terms of the ongoing war against Russia, it is all about control and manipulating public opinion to justify an unjust hot war against Russia and her allies at the end of the day. This while encircling Russia with their armies and trying to gain first strike capability in terms of a nuclear strike.

Lucky for the world, the Russians have developed cutting edge nuclear capable weapons, designed to maintain a balance of power. However, make no mistake, when push comes to shove - the Russians will be left with no choice but to respond aggressively. They have so far been very patient and is in the business of advocating peace in a multi-polar world - a world where we can all get along, despite our differences.

Well looking at the incident at face value it would be logical to assume Russia did it but things are not always as they seem and you have to look at what happens as a result of the incident. If somebody wanted to pin something on the Russians then it would be quite easy to make it look like it was them and the public would be fooled, but I would personally need more evidence before I made my mind up on either side. The Father and Daughter were found on a park bench in a very public place so there must have been quite a lot of CCTV of the attackers getting there.



Also, isn't it a bit cliche for Russians to use a nerve agent and that specific one that would immediately draw ties to them? Why wouldn't they just quietly track them down and take them out with a bullet to the head or poison them in some other way (fentanyl has been used in assassinations and is quite effective in small doses). Something seems fishy to me but I wont jump to conclusions until I've seen more evidence either way.

I'm not sure if you mean Russia or the UK is becoming more isolated. Shaking off the shackles of the Keiser Reich will release the UK from the isolation of the EU, and will allow it to rebuild its old trading relationships. Sanctioning Russia has been counter productive, and has led to the establishment of a Asian alternative to Swift, and I understand that this is being supported by the UK.

I'm a bit suspicious of the whole situation. I think the fact that the attempt failed may indicate that it wasn't a Russian military excercise. They don't seem to fail very often. The timing is also a bit suspicious. We know that the Deep State needs a major event to try to recover some of their declining power, and to create an alternative economy. A war is their tradition method of doing this, and I hope that reason will prevail, and we can avoid this. It wouldn't be difficult for the Deep State to get hold of some of the 20 year old poison, and it could be that the fact that it is old stock was the reason for its failure. Hopefully we will get some more information, so that we can establish the culpability and purpose of this event.

This is a political game.
We need facts, as well as poisoned and what substances, analyzes, international. The media can write anything. From the news we can already conclude that the Russian special services are all-powerful and everywhere =)
You agree with me?

Yes! We need evidence and a thorough public investigation. Without harsh, thoughtless conclusions.

Snap, you got me there, one less country to serve our Kaiserreich. You're right tho, there's hundreds of countries who just can't wait to offer this little island super favorable trading conditions, now that it won't be part of the largest market in the world any more. There's a new golden age dawning my friend, what with the UK's unresolved border issues, its major companies preparing travel plans to the mainland and its political leaders running around like headless chickens and backstabbing each other, mark my words.

England is the mainland - Ireland and the Isle of Wight are the surrounding islands.

The EU puts 80% of it's derivatives and other financial transactions through London, How are they going to replace that? - they don't even speak  English.

We import twice as much from the EU as we export to them, how are they going to cope with that?

And what about all the money that it sucks out of our economy. I suspect it will go bust without it.

But you are right about our politicians - they are Unicorns - The Unicorn was a man made creation to lead free spirited wild horses into capitivity, and that is wht they have been doing for years.

Oh Yes - the borders. That's something that needs to be sorted out by the Irish, and not the Deep State warmongers.

Is the ring fenced EU the largest market in the world? They aren't even talking to the Chinese about the Belt and Road initiative - the UK and America are. That's probably going to be the major trading initiative in the future.

My heart is bursting with unjust attacks on Russia. These are all the political games that are conducted before the presidential elections to aggravate and so uneasy political situation.
I'm sorry for those people who learn the truth from the media in Britain and the US. They will never let you know the truth. Simple people will only know what the media will give them.

I meant 'mainland' as in 'the continent', sorry for the confusion.

To get to your points:

Quote

So you're saying that the EU will be hurt, because the UK is heavily reliant on EU imports? I think you might have it backwards. While the UK is a very important trading partner, it's not the most important one. The EU on the other hand, is the UK's largest trading partner - the most important one. 43% of all UK exports go to the EU (http://researchbriefings.parliament.uk/ResearchBriefing/Summary/CBP-7851#fullreport).

Quote
And what about all the money that it sucks out of our economy. I suspect it will go bust without it.

According to a report by the Office for Budget Responsibility "The UK will save no money from leaving the European Union over the next five years and could be paying its Brexit divorce bill until at least 2064" (https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/mar/13/uk-save-money-brexit-obr-divorce-bill)

A leaked government report shows that any Brexit scenario will negatively impact the British economy. New trade deals will not even come close to replacing what is lost by leaving the EU (https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/jan/30/key-questions-latest-leaked-brexit-forecasts)

So no, no one seriously claims that the EU is "sucking out money" out of the UK's economy - not even May and her cabinet.

Quote
Oh Yes - the borders. That's something that needs to be sorted out by the Irish

Eh, I'm pretty sure that's very much in the UK's own interest, especially since they're the ones that started this whole Brexit circus. Having a land border with the EU would mean you'd have to put up border controls, basically dividing both countries. You'd have to put in some kind of police/military presence, too. Hmmm, I wonder if that could be a sensitive issue for anyone... nope, can't think of anyone...

I don't know enough about how Brexit might impact EU finances - but rest assured that most Europeans speak English to some extent, especially those working in finance. It's not difficult Cheesy

They will start another world war before they will allow Brexit to happen for real. Brexit is currently nothing but smoke and mirrors - designed to fool and cheat Brexit voters. Theresa May was never in favor of Brexit, yet was appointed to lead the charge. They are toying with Brexit voters like a cat is toying with a mouse. It is a complete disgrace.

Theresa May is a deep state Unicorn politician. Brexit will happen, or there will be a revolution.

Re: the Skripal poisoning.

It's looking more and more as if Russia was not involved. The poison was created in 1990 cold war period. Since then the Russia has agreed not to use chemical weapons, and their stockpile was destroyed, and this has been verified. The formula for the nerve agent is now in the public domain, so anyone could create it. I'm beginning to believe that the incident was ordered by the deep state, and is an attempt to get Russia removed from the United Nations security council.

Would you be so kind as to provide a source for any of these claims? One that is not Breitbart or Russia Today? Because according to Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, former head of the Joint Chemical, Biological, Radiation and Nuclear Regiment, Novichock nerve agents were only ever made in central Russia (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-43377698)

You seem to not trust the UK government very much - fair enough. However, you trust the Russian government that they didn't hide away some of their chemical weapons? Or that they didn't lie when they agreed to never use chemical weapons? Seems a bit paradoxical to me.

I don't really trust any government.

A quote from the article in your link
Quote
Novichok's existence was revealed by chemist Dr Vil Mirzayanov in the 1990s, via Russian media. He later defected to the US, where he published the chemical formula in his book, State Secrets.

So as I stated, the formula is in the public domain, and it could be manufactured by anybody.

Correct. It is published in State Secrets: An Insider's Chronicle of the Russian Chemical Weapons Program by Vil S Mirzayanov. I don't know for how long it will stay up, but it is currently available for purchase at Amazon.

Yeah, alright, I agree with your first point, it's in the public domain. I don't know the first thing about chemical weapons, but claiming that "anyone" could manufacture them, seems to be a bit of a stretch to me, though. I can imagine that getting the chemicals, the facilities, personnel and equipment necessary to produce these nerve agents is a pretty challenging and possibly very dangerous task. Something that you'd have to spend serious money on. How would a democratic country like, say, UK, keep that a secret from budget oversight committees in parliament?

The British military base at Porton Down - deemed a "pioneer in chemicals research" - is more than capable of manufacturing it. Chances are that they manufactured it, but unfortunately a truly independent investigation will never be allowed to take place while the likes of Theresa May sits in government.

How difficult would it be to sneak this stuff into the country as well? If you get caught with that at the border or having it shipped to you you'd be in serious trouble or your cover would be immediately blown. It would make it more likely that it was made in the UK, otherwise buying a gun or using some other sort of drug would be both far easier and safer to procure.

This also happened this week though isn't believed to be related:

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/mar/16/police-launch-inquiry-over-death-of-nikolai-glushkov

Quote
Police have launched a murder investigation into the death of the Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov after a pathologist concluded he died from compression to the neck, suggesting he may have been strangled by hand or ligature.

The Met police’s counter-terrorism command is retaining its lead role in the investigation “because of the associations Mr Glushkov is believed to have had” but has cautioned that there is no suggestion of a link with the attempted murders of the Russian former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in Salisbury almost two weeks ago.

Now this would be more like how I would assume they'd get taken out, though I suppose this could be suicide given the trial (or that's what they wanted it to look like *puts on tinfoil hat*).

Well it seems that it was placed on the daughter's clothes before she came to England, and this is why so many people have come into contact with it.

It's looking more and more like a deep state operation. Russia has launched an enquiry, and Theresa May has refuse to provide them with a sample for analysis. This is in contravention of International law. It will also make it harder for Russia to track down the source of the toxin. Theresa May is a deep state Unicorn politician, and this action by her is predictable if she is trying to get Russia off the United Nations Security Council

Don't forget that a Unicorn is a rather nasty creature invented by man, and used to capture and enslave wild horses in the past.

Okay, I'm out. This deep state stuff to me is a symptom of people trying to make sense of the world around them and failing. To some people it's easier to imagine that there are puppet masters pulling the strings in the background, than accepting that the world is a chaotic place where nothing follows a plan. Nothing happens by accident, it's all just part of a grand conspiracy. But you, yes you, you figured it out. All the eggheads in their offices couldn't see through these evil machinations, but you realized what's going on after watching some Youtube videos. I guess you're just a little bit special.

I seriously hope that you can be given new faith in democracy. I wonder what has to be done. Does the political system have to become more accessible and transparent? Does the way of communicating issues have to change? Do you?

Sorry for the rant.

Here is a quote from the Guardian

Quote
Mirzayanov worked inside the secret military installation where novichok was developed; his job was testing the surrounding air and soil for traces of novichok.

When he realized that Moscow’s military was lying about the possible applications of novichok and that the program risked undermining global chemical weapons bans, he said, he decided to expose it, publishing his first account in the Russian press in 1991.

He was arrested in 1994 and charged with divulging state secrets. Intervention by the US government, the Soros foundation and activists including his wife Gale, an American, secured his asylum in the United States.

What a surprise - Soros was involved in the protection of the scientist who worked on the chemical.

Soros is the guy who funded the Clintons and Obama, and is currently funding the anti-Brexit movement amongst others. The sums of money he throws around are enormous - hundreds of billions of dollars.

Okay, I'm out. This deep state stuff to me is a symptom of people trying to make sense of the world around them and failing. To some people it's easier to imagine that there are puppet masters pulling the strings in the background, than accepting that the world is a chaotic place where nothing follows a plan. Nothing happens by accident, it's all just part of a grand conspiracy. But you, yes you, you figured it out. All the eggheads in their offices couldn't see through these evil machinations, but you realized what's going on after watching some Youtube videos. I guess you're just a little bit special.

I seriously hope that you can be given new faith in democracy. I wonder what has to be done. Does the political system have to become more accessible and transparent? Does the way of communicating issues have to change? Do you?

Sorry for the rant.

The truth hurts. It is better to respond with a rant based on half-assed assumptions and subjective BS than to face it full on.

And Soros is on record for having a strong disliking of President Putin.

And another Russian has been murdered, and Putin has forced the English police to admit he was strangled, and they were reluctant to do this. This isn't the action of a guilty man.

Putin is blocking the invasion of Syria in order to remove their democratically elected leader - Assad. The game seems to be working towards removing Russia from the UN, so that they can invade Syria. They also need to create a war to cope with the collapsing dollar and the massive debt associated with it. They need control of the mineral wealth in North Korea as well, and that was what all the fuss and posturing was about. I bet they are p'd off now that Trump seems to be trying to find a peaceful result.

Russia is also working with China to replace the petro-dollar with the petro-yuan, or possibly the petro-ruble. That is going to have a big impact on the value of the dollar.

I'm a bit stressed about the whole thing. I want Brexit to happen tomorrow, and we can dump the EU, and just trade with the European countries that we want to. Don't forget that Russia ia a European country as well.

I think we should be looking at the Belt and Road Initiative coming out of Asia, and forget about the minor ring fenced organisation called the EU. The EU won't survive without our money and purchases from them anyway.

Well it seems that it was placed on the daughter's clothes before she came to England, and this is why so many people have come into contact with it.

I wouldn't think it was clothes. Have you tried putting a French cheese in luggage? After the flight you would smell it even before opening a suitcase. Grin And remember, this was a nerve agent.

So if it came with the daughter, it must have been something properly sealed, a spray for example, or a bottle. It is simply not possible to poison clothes in a suitcase without poisoning Yulia, flight crew and passengers or everyone who touched this suitcase in the airport. And if it was a spray or a bottle, it's impossible to unseal it in the airport, put a poison inside and seal it back (maybe except "eau de parfum").

By the way, a new conspiracy theory, an interview with Victoria Skripal (a niece of Sergei Skripal): http://telegra.ph/Pochemu-vy-dumaete-chto-ubit-hoteli-imenno-ego-a-ne-doch-EHksklyuzivnoe-intervyu-s-semej-Sergeya-Skripalya-otravlennogo-yadom-No-03-14-2 She thinks that it was an attempt to kill Yulia by a mother of her fiance, who was strictly against their wedding (she insisted that her son should not merry "the daughter of a traitor"). Well, you know, it is quite common in Russia, when someone travels abroad to a immigrated relative, pass gifts from all the family. So when someone says "pass on this "eau de parfum" to your lovely father as my personal gift" - you just wouldn't suspect anything at all.

But in fact, it is better if it was a secret service. Otherwise I would be scary that it is so easy to get a nerve agent in Russia. Shocked But Russia will never start any investigation on its territory even if there is 100% evidence that the poison came from Russia, they will never acknowledge that fact, it's too sensitive. We will never find out the truth.

I understand it was in powder form.

Handling itis quite a risky and specialist task, as is the manufacture. It is unlikely to be planted or obtained by someone without a goodlevel of specialist knowledge. That knowledge is more likely to be in the deep state as a result of their actions to try to lay a false blame on Assad. I think the association with Soros is a significant factor as well. That lies more with the need to spread alarm in the UK. The Unicorn deep state agent Theresa May rushed straight in to blame Russia, and this was without any investigation. That smacks of orders from above.

such an obvious false flag set up that I don't think it is even worth discussing
1.no evidence that Russia as a state is connected to the "murder" in any way,other than statements that the gas was of Soviet origin
according to Brits,no other country had the formula
(I put murder in quotes,since they are both alive and there is no information about their current condition)
accidentally,there was a ... facility nearby that quickly determined the unknown formula and injected antidote
same as with the US presidential involvement-we have all the evidence "winking",but it is too secret to show you

2.the timing
do you think that russians had no other timeframe to do this but right before the presidential elections?
you can call them anything,but they are not stupid
3.the reason
why? why on earth try to kill a spy that has been exchanged years ago
what danger could he pose to anyone other than serve as a sacrificial lamb
4.qui bono
who is to gain? doesn't it look to be just one of the steps in trying to discredit Russia and demonize it,think about it
and you will see that there was 0 profit for the russians from this death
5.the method
seriously...chemical weapon,they should have eliminated him with a dirty bomb instead with "made in russia" written on it /sarcasm

there are more incosistencies like the picture of the scene,where two people in full cycle biochemical protection suits,two people in
protective gear and masks... and three brave firemen two metres away,squarejawing into cameras
oh and have you seen the "Strike back" series,the funny thing is that one of the villains tried to poison the good guys with the gas called "Novichek"
don't believe me-go watch it yourselves
this was timed with a Syrian setup,where Asad was going to be accused of a chemical weapon attack on civilians,of course,Russia was to blame again

this can only work on total russofobic audience and people with no critical thinking and logics
what is disturbing,the war is coming,see false flags like Lousitania or Pearl Harbor-prepare for war

For those in the West who fail to grasp the seriousness of the situation, based on reality and not pie in the sky (or BBC propaganda), be sure to listen to what Russian presidential candidate, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, had to say about the issue: https://youtu.be/_aip_AtDxns

P.S. Yes, Zhirinovsky is hot-headed, but speaks the truth.

Here are some things to think about.

- The only country that has chemical weapons at the moment is the US, and the developer of the toxin was given sanctuary in the US. So was it the US, some of the evidence points to them. Steps back - what would the US have gain, probably nothing, so it is unlikely to be them.

- The UK military lab is at Porton Down, and that is only a few miles away from Salisbury. They identified the poison fairly quickly, and in order to do this, they would need to have a sample for comparison. So was it the UK, some of the evidence points to them. Steps back - what would the UK have to gain, probably nothing, so it unlikely to be them.

- The poison was developed in Russia, and the guy was a Russian defector who had been pardoned by the current government, some of the evidence points to Russia. Steps back again, what would Russia have to gain, probably nothing, and a great deal to lose, so they are probably the least likely culprits.

- The only gainers from this botched attempt to kill Skripal is the Deep State, and they badly need an event to try to save their failing influence, and totry to depose Assad. What is the evidence, well there isn't any of course, so we have to consider probabilities and coincidences. Soros was instrumental in the rerptrition of the developer of the toxin. Theresa May is a Deep State Unicorn, and she has villified Russia without evidence, and hs refused to cooperate with them in the investigation. This is the action of someone attempting to conceal the facts.

Lets hope that the evidence does surface before the Deep State manages to get Russia removed from the United Nations security council, this seems to be the object of the excercise.

I would agree with it,only it is not the Deep State which is the culprit,IMHO (or you can call it Global Goverment,Cabal or any other name there is)
they are not interested in demonizing Russia at the moment,the all out war is not their goal right now-the shift of power is and establishing several new centres of power:China,mostly and Russia and Iran,potentially
just look at them handling the N.Korea crisis,it is obvious that the US losing their authority everywhere,they are forced out of Africa by China,losing to China in Asia and to Russia and Iran in the Middle East
as for this incident,I think it is one of the countrie's elites and the special services connected to them,most likely British, in conjunction with americans
but the way it was done,disgrace,no finesse,an obvious set up

I agree with most of your points, but I can't agree with that one. Russia has broken free from the Rothschilds banking control, and that is a major threat to the globalists' power. They also need to get Russia out of the UN to create a new war over Syria.

I would have disagreed with your comment about Britain being involved. However, The Globalist Unicorn Theresa May would seem to be doing everything she can to hamper the investigtion, and this tends to give credibility to the idea.

This starts toget even more interesting. Here is a video about the way Novichok works
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caYCPMuOwRQ

It is not a single toxin, but a family of toxins, and analysis of the substance used could give a clue to its source. I suspect this is why the UK government is refusing to release a sample for analysis. Speculation seems to be increasing that the product was manufactured in Porton Down, and released to a private hit squad. There is so much variety in the conjecture surrounding this attempted assasination, that without the release of some hard facts, we may never know the true story. The possibility that it was ordered by Putin seems to be diminishing though.

of course,the chemical agent in question is deadly once it is mixed,the whole area and everyone and everything who was in contact with it
would have been poisoned and died horribly,the thing is that the whole scenario with his daughter "bringing it from Russia in her suitcase where it had been planted by the russians"
has no sense,the substance was mixed there in the UK,the goverment refuses to both grant access to the spy's daughter (who is a russian citizen)
and to give a sample for analysis,which is in a direct contradiction with the convention on chemical weapons

Guys, you do not understand how Russia works. I live here. Trust me, it was most probably russians because of the style. EVERYTHING in Russia is affected by the corruption. And here we see a messy and unsuccessful attempt to kill someone with a wrong mean at the wrong time.
No need to look for deep state. The order of murder was given a long time ago. All the financing was stolen the job was not done. The same cycle was repeated a couple times with heavy stealing all the while. Finally from all the millions issued on the murder a couple thousand bucks fell in the hands of the actual hitman. Unprofessional unprepared with insufficient information he tried to get his hands on weapon of any kind. It is hard to get a gun and transfer it abroad. But it is possible to find a can of some deadly substance on the black market which was stolen from some secret vault by some military officer who is also stealing on a daily basis.
This is normal here. Everything that is done poorly is most probably done by the government.

There is corruption everywhere in the world, but there is no proof that either the Russian government or Russians attempted to poison turncoat low life, Sergei Skripal. You living in Russia - true or untrue - doesn't diminish the call for a proper and independent investigation. You living in Russia also don't remove the possibility that you're a turncoat yourself. It is after all no secret that there are scumbag Russians that are more than willing to work against Mother Russia for crumbs from the table of Western intelligence services. In addition, it is very easy to use a VPN service to register at forums and pretend to live there. I will pass the details onto the SVR and FSB for verification.

I can understand the comment by ArsenyP, but it doesn't fit the circumstances of this case.

It isn't easy to purchase that toxin, it is extremely dangerous, and needs special care when handling and transporting it, and it needs training to be able to use it.

You comment doesn't explain why Theresa May rushed to blame Putin before she was able to publish the evidence of his association. She made it appear as if the evidence proved that there wasn't a Russian involvement, and she needed to build public opinion against Russia early in the investigation. The link to Soros would also appear to give rise to the belief that it was a Deep State "event".

True, there is no evidence of russians being involved. But common sence suggests that such a messy job could not be done in accordance with some mad masterminds plan. Could you imagine the paperwork behind such a decision? No one issues orders to kill civilians unless 100% necessary, because everyone is afraid to lose his job. Most definitely this mission went wrong. The question is who failed? I think it was someone from russian government just because they tend to fail a lot. But I am not saying that someone did not help them fail. One can bribe a president in Russia. Why not bribe a GRU-hitman? Or fool him?

If the Russian government wanted that scumbag dead, he would have been dead a long time ago.

A "messy job" forms part of what you call "some mad masterminds plan," because the intention was not to kill the scumbag and his daughter, but to portray it as a failed attempt by the enemy to assassinate them. To create the idea that the enemy's actions are unprofessional, irresponsible and outright dangerous, not only to the alleged targets, but also to the public at large.

In addition, even if proof existed that show that it was an attempt by the Russian authorities to take out the scumbag, it would not take away from the fact that Skripal is a scumbag who deserves death.

Furthermore, Western intelligence services have never poisoned or attempted to assassinate anyone on Russian soil. Roll Eyes

The UK government's reaction is of a government that is pushing for war at any cost. If the public don't wake up fast and remove the warmongers from power, they will be destroyed along with the scumbag traitors. The Russian government has restrained itself for most part, but I am sure their patience are starting to run out. It will only take a couple of missiles to level the whole nine yards.

I'm finding it difficult to obtain any further factual information about the event. THey are loads of discussions about what should be done because of this alleged attck by Putin, but there isn't even a basic report about the essentils, and there is a lot of contradictions as well. For example, why can't we be told where the policeman was when he became infected?

Governments eem to do this all the time, and Brexit is another exmple. It is quite cleaar that the EU should refund some of our payments when we leave the EU, and they should purchase our shareholdings in EU assets. The EU is bankrupt, and can't afford this, so all the rhetoric is about the "UK Brexit bill", and this is done so that whatever they decide to steal from the country is seen to be a bargain, and a great feat of negotiation.

if it was put in her suitcase, then it could have been done before they entered the country. I think they have changed the story to try to say that Putin ordered the attack in England. I thought that the policeman became infected in the daughters flat, but that contradicts the car theory. So where was the policeman exposed to the toxin?

No.

Perhaps the attacked was staged by the British, or the British poisoned him.

I wouldn't go that far. At the most they'll probably impose some sanctions on them but I very much doubt they intend to start World War 3 over this. There would have to be some much bigger incident for that to happen but not sure why they'd want to start a war with them (and likely a nuclear one at that).

I don't think they want to start a war with Russia. I think they want to see Russia removed from the UN SC, so that they can invade Syria, and kill Assad.

The deep state needs an event fairly soon, as the rug is being pulled out from under them.

Some more food for thought -

It seems that the reason that the two Russians and the policeman didn't die is because they were given an antidote fairly quickly. If they were given an antidote so quickly, then the authorities must have had previous knowledge about the poison administered..

They probably didn't die because they likely only came into contact with trace amounts of it as they were obviously not the intended victims. I mentioned fentanyl being used in assassinations previously and there's cases of drug addicts who have overdosed on fentanyl that even the paramedics or doctors that attended to them had to be treated for overdoses because it's that powerful - especially if you have no tolerance to it.

Quote
He didn’t even realize he’d been exposed — and then the paramedic started to overdose, authorities say.

Responding to an emergency call in Fairborn, Ohio on Thursday night around 7 p.m., a handful of paramedics treated a 49-year-old woman for a suspected opioid overdose, WKEF reports. Police and paramedics administered life support, City Manager Rob Anderson told the Dayton Daily News, and then rushed the woman to the hospital for further care.

But on the way to Soin Medical Center, the paramedic driving the vehicle started to feel funny.

“He was not feeling right. He was having issues seeing the speedometer controls,” David Reichert, division chief for the Fairborn fire department, told the newspaper. The medic in the back was able to stop the vehicle.

There have been numerous cases like this and I imagine it's a similar story for dangerous pathogens.

Why would you believe someone, who refuses to provide proof to third parties for verification, i.e. the very same someone who is willing to kill their own people to pass some "anti terrorism" laws and whatnot? Absolutely not. Classic government orchestrated attack.

I don't think they want to start a war with Russia. I think they want to see Russia removed from the UN SC, so that they can invade Syria, and kill Assad.
Sounds likely. At least the relationship between China and Russia is gaining strength due to these obvious attacks.

Pro tip: You don't want to go to the US/UK nor live there.

I think Skripal's and Glushkov's deaths were Russian hit jobs. The used nerve gas, according to the newspapers I read, is of soviet origin. So either they used it themselves, which is bad, or they let it get taken from them, which is worse in a way. In any case, I don't think Russia has much to lose.
Wrong. Several other countries had access to the nerve agent.

In a public statement, Boris Johnson stated that Porton Down has a stock of the family of toxins, and these were used for comparison purposes.

It would appear that the original developers of the toxin were the British.

was pretty obvious from the beginning
I have no doubt the attack is staged,just not sure who ordered it exactly
this toxin formula has been known to the US special serviced since they participated in the demolition of the Uzbekistan laboratory
that held all the samples,blaming russians for the attack is akin to blaming brits if there was a car accident in Moscow and some dude was hit to death by an Aston Martin



oh and a totally "coincidental" onomatopoeia,if you haven't noticed
Novichok,which is russian for "newcomer,newbie" sounds like "Now We Choke" in english

The real irony is that I believe the agent was first discovered by the British.

The whole incident has escalated way out of proportion, especially as there still seems to be a paucity of physical evidence. I shudder to think what the reaction will be if it turns out that it is a Soros created event, and that May is just the puppet Unicorn.

there will be no reaction whatsoever
those few who undertsand the real state of things are in the minority
and all of the media is controlled by several families,no truth will ever surface there
now,without any evidence,discarding the presumption of innocence principle the "democratic" powers are so proud of
Russia is accused of the thing they,most likely,didn't do
all I want to know is how far the things are going to be escalated by the warmongers
because expelling diplomats,if you read any history book, is done right before a full out agression
mind you after the protectionists measures by Trump,there is also a trade war going on as we speak- the US vs China
China already stated that those who are trying to cut a piece of our flesh will find themselves without their front teeth,lets see
it could lead to drastic changes,markets are going to be volatile as hell as the currencies will be devalued to protect the home markets etc. etc.

We are without doubt that Russia is responsible. No country bar Russia has combined capability, intent and motive.
There is no plausible alternative explanation


As of Sunday 18 March, we count over thirty parallel lines of Russian disinformation

They are using the awful reputation that Russia has been given over the years to make claims without backing them up. Let's just have a look at their bullet points and try and answer them without being too bias here.

Quote
Novichok is a group of agents developed only by Russia and not declared under the CWC
This at face value looks pretty bad on the Russian behalf. However I think we are forgetting that no one was caught in the act of this and this may have been obtained another way. Just because a nerve agent is only developed in one country doesn't mean that the formula isn't known by anyone else. Okay so maybe they've traced it back to Russia via other means and have evidence that they aren't providing that it came from Russia. But they haven't presented that so all we know is that Russia is the only known location that this is developed and it's likely that's where it came from. This doesn't prove that Russia used it.

Quote

capability, intent and motive.There is no plausible alternative
explanation

This is bullshit. I'm not sure what they are talking about the capability to pull something like this off but it seems pretty amatuerish to me. Someone has poisoned a family with something which is traceable rather than dealing with it through other means which wouldn't be so easily traceable. Why would Russia use something which is developed only in their country.

Motive? There doesn't need to be a obvious motive or even a motive at all. People murder each other every day and it only takes someone within Russia to not take a liking to the victims to try something out. This doesn't mean it was sanctioned by Russia.  

Then they bring up past "malign activity" that Russia has done/been apart of and try to suggest that there is a pattern. No there is no pattern in that whatsoever. I'm not going to defend Russia in any of these because let's be honest a lot of them were incredibly awful. But has anyone noticed that they've included the poisoning of sergei and his daughter in this little image? Yet I don't see 100% proof here and more speculation because of the origin of where the nerve agent comes from.

I'm sorry but we as the public should not accept assumption and should demand that a proper investigation is taken out and that EVIDENCE be provided instead of being spoon fed what they think happened and what is plausible. They haven't provided any evidence and are using the public perception of Russia to paint a picture and get the public to dislike them further. I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas why evidence hasn't been given and we've been given this very brief (in terms of context) briefing.

Just to add that most of this awful reputation was given on very similar occasions - based on tons of BS and proofless accusations. The demonisation process is in full swing, does Russia give a damn about it? I don't think so, they just mind their own business always stating they are open for a dialog, as long as it's constructive.

Russia is not the only country that has developed it. Boris Johnson has confirmed that Britain has an active development plan, and expanded Porton Down just before the attack.

Russia has no motive, but the UN does. The recent statement by the US about the way that Russia is supporting Assad - the democratically elected leader of Syria, confirms that the US is on a campaign to create an event to start conflict with Russia, It is to Russia's credit that they are not rising to the bait - yet.

Who needs proof when the media will spread what message you want out there for you. It's the same thing with the suspecting Iraq of having Nuclear weapons and Afghanistan harbouring Bin Laden which was used to justify the entire invasions:

Quote
Following the September 11 attacks in 2001 on the U.S., which President George W. Bush blamed on Osama bin Laden who was living or hiding in Afghanistan, President Bush demanded that the Taliban hand over Osama bin Laden and expel al-Qaeda; bin Laden had already been wanted by the U.S. since 1998.[60] The Taliban declined to extradite him unless they were provided evidence of his involvement in the September 11 attacks and also declined demands to extradite others on the same grounds. The U.S. dismissed the request for evidence as a delaying tactic,[61] and on October 7, 2001 launched Operation Enduring Freedom with the United Kingdom

Apparently requesting proof of any evidence is just a delaying tactic these days. Now we've just got to wait and see what sanctions or repercussions they try to put on Russia.

What many people might not know is that Sergei Skripal was previously imprisoned in a Russia prison in 2006 for high treason. In the summer of 2010 he was released along with 3 other spies as part of a spy swap. This involved 10 Russian agents that were arrested in the United States. The UK insisted to the USA that Sergei Skripal were to be included in the swap.

Now it's been reported that he carried on reporting to the United Kingdom for a few years after he was released. What's concerning is that his relatively young family has been died before the incident happened this year.His wife died in 2012 of cancer, his son who was only 43 died in 2017 of unknown circumstances and I believe were deemed not suspicious. Sergei's older brother also died some what recently however I can't recall of what he died of.


His daughter however did live and work in Russia after his time of release and it's already been reported that he continued to supply information to the United Kingdom. Therefore it's not entirely implausible he was getting his information from his daughter. Although I do doubt that this was the case. So my question in all of this is why would Russia let him go rather than just killing him right there. Sergei settled down in the United Kingdom and didn't look like he was concerned about his well being. Yes his release was for several other spies and you might argue that the Russian government allowed him to escape temporarily to get the spies they wanted and then planned on killing him at a later date. But this would of been a big risk for Russia as a spy would normally know how to disappear if he thought his well being was at risk.

Unless in 8 years he gathered new information on Russia I don't think they would of purposely went out of their way to risk both murdering a man and also undermining the authority of both the United Kingdom and the USA. It just simply isn't worth the risk for one man that they deemed to be free by releasing him in the spy trade. For example in the 8 years that he had between his release and the poisoning any information that he did have on Russia would of likely passed hands to the authorities of the United Kingdom.

There's a few news reports going around right now about the UK government believes that it wasn't some rogue group that just got a hold of the nerve agent because of how sophisticated approach of applying it to his front door and wherever else. I think it's fair to say the UK have not got much evidence here and their accusations are based on assumption. I would like to think that if a rogue group as they refer to them got their hands on the nerve agent in the first place they would be more than capable of performing a sophisticated attack with it.

Sergei Skripal has direct connections to people involved in creating the so called "Steele dossier". This attack is designed to tie up loose ends for US/UK intelligence agencies while also directing public blow back towards Russia to further escalate tensions dividing it from Europe and pushing for war.

Side note, intelligence agencies don't hand over spies with information worth killing them over. Releasing him then assassinating him later, on UK soil no less makes zero sense. The scenario I previously mentioned however makes lots of sense given the circumstances.

The source of course is suspect as having state ties with Russia, but the explanation makes a lot of sense. The toxins in the Fugu fish are tetrodotoxins which would likely have some of the same symptoms as chemical bioweapons. Yet again, the restaurant they were last in was Italian... not Japanese.

It looks like that government official in both Uk and Russia want to make it look like Skripal was poisoned by Putin's assassins (who are likely not Russian at all, both by residency and by nationality).

It just serves great as a part of possible right wing political plan (conspiracy theory, yeah) to divide the world and manipulate societies into serving them thru fear.

Russian spy poisoning: Sergei Skripal 'improving rapidly'

They're both 'improving rapidly' apparently. It will be interesting to see what they will have to say and if they can shed any light on the culprits. Does anyone know if they've already spoken about what happened?


==========



The soccer World Cup in the summer is being held in Russia. I wonder if there will be any retaliation there. There is almost certainly gong to be trouble between football fans and Russian Hooligans are notoriously violent and will be looking for trouble. If any of them die -- which I wouldn't be surprised if they did -- this could further escalate tensions.

They could. But if this was carried out as sophisticated as the media and government is proclaiming then they'll likely be as clueless as us or making assumptions based on the information know. The thing is this family was well known from multiple governments and as we've seen in other leaks there's multiple entities which get exposed. Look at Snowden for an example. He pissed off a lot of people not just the USA authorities.

You are also assuming we get to know the truth and what the Skripal's actually want to say.

actually this is possible in both variants. Russians are quite a firm nation and our leader is a firm man too, so I would not be surprised if it is a work of FSB, but it can also be a provocation to destabilize Russian position in the world and so the relationships between countries get worse.

Sorry I've been out of this thread for a while.

The latest info seems to point to the fact that the culprit was an asset run by the European Union who was working in Porton Down. It seems that he was inexperienced, and that is why the attempt failed. The deep state needs an event to distract interest from the treasonous actions of the Unicorn prime minister Theresa May.

In view of the Skripal murder attempt becoming unravelled, they seem to have started another false action - the gas attack by Assad. No intelligent person would ever believe that he would do this, especially as he seems to be winning back his country.

Lets hope that the evidence will further discredit the Clintons, Obama, Richard Branson, Tony Blair, Soros, Bill Gates and all the others who want a global war as part of their eugenics project.

Interesting survey at Porton Down laboratory:

Quote
Staff at secretive defence centre Porton Down suffer low morale and lack confidence in leadership, survey reveals

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/porton-down-chemical-weapons-employees-staff-morale-salisbury-nerve-agent-attack-russia-a8293486.html

What if an employee from Porton Down wanted to play a hero to show the importance of the laboratory and even get a promotion? And then deliberately poisoned Skripals and issued false claims that it was Novichek from Russia (although if it was real Novichek, the victims would be already dead, or in any case not fully recovered). It was quite suspicious that antidote for Skripals came from Porton Down very quickly and was quite effective, it looks like they already knew what kind of poison was used (if it was a secret Russian poison, they would need to conduct a research first to find the proper antidote).

There was another incident recently in the UK with Novichok. Looks like they might have come into contact with a contaminated item or so it has been alleged: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-44733873

Quote
Police in hazmat suits have entered a hostel in Salisbury as they search for the item contaminated with the nerve agent that poisoned a couple.

Investigators in protective clothing began searching John Baker House, where one of the victims, Dawn Sturgess, 44, lives, on Friday afternoon.

Police believe Charlie Rowley, 45, and Ms Sturgess were exposed to Novichok after handling the unknown object.

The pair remain in a critical condition in hospital.

The item was unlikely to have been left in the open before they touched it, a government scientist has told BBC News.

BBC home affairs correspondent Daniel Sandford said the search for the item could take "weeks or months" and that no objects have yet been collected for testing.

Interesting survey at Porton Down laboratory:

Realistically this really isn't realistic at all it took a while for the antidote to be found and a while to pull all three of them out of a critical condition and a high dependency unit.

Maybe Russia didn't want a murder case on their hands, they probably know the strength of the antidoes the UK have (they have antidotes for quite a few novichok serums and for the UK VX serums and the antidotes are usually general for both substances so they'd just need a low strength novichok to give a message of their strength).

My analysis:


The UK gov's story is ridiculous

For all the reasons now stated ad nauseum. Plus, why would the Russian gov do something so publicly, and so superficially gruesome?


...but the alternative story (that the Russian gov imply) is also ridiculous

Why would the British gov do something so incredibly transparent? It's so obviously implausible that anyone except the most tribally aligned would willingly believe it.



The British and Russian govs are probably doing a joint PR operation here, and the objective is likely to push people with strong anti or pro Russian positions even further into entrenchment (and subsequently ratchet up the "cold war 2.0" narrative). So it's likely good old fashioned divide & conquer, basically. That's been the outcome after all; pro-russians & anti-russians have a bigger distrust between them than ever, and the only benefit can be whatever outcome of the cold war 2.0 narrative is desired (which is likely both governments becoming more repressive, because public safety)
