Re: Poisoning of two Russians and a police officer in Salisbury, UK

George Galloway is great in this podcast. He nails it with a good sense of humor as well. It's about 12 minutes long. Enjoy and have a nice day everyone...

As you insist on reporting the thoughts of people who believe the same as you, it's clear that you have found a place filled with like minded people. So why don't you stay in that little echo chamber and spare us the ramblings of Trollski and Anonymous? We are adults and quite capable of coming to our own conclusions without consulting quotes from random people on another forum.

Video link doesn't work (for me).
Good idea with YTs: Post the name of the video and we can find it!

I can well understand that. But then, what would it be serious enough for you to build your opinion on? Who would you trust to give accurate information about so contentious events? After all, we are so remote from the events that we can only build an opinion based on what others say?

I would tend think there is (pun intended) some substance behind the report published on the OPCW website. I do not need to know all the details, I probably won't be able to understand them either. But I trust their work and their message.

Don't take this question personally, it's not aimed at you, it's more a philosophical question than anything else....
I've done some more research in the mean time.

Your question was good yesterday. It's even better today.

OK folks, I see this thread is still going so I’m going to chime in for a bit.
Just for a bit, heh? /sarcasm

In fact I would flag your post as the perfect example of trollery... So much copy-paste from the internet that it makes one sick even to respond

And Paul Craig Roberts? Again? He got quoted so many times in this thread it's getting boring already. Just look for the long posts with lots of copy-paste quotes in them.

But I guess mentioning and hyperlinking him just increases his google hit count so I'm doing it a favour already...

You have a problem with me finding evidence to back-up the fact that the UK is full of sh*t...yet, you post links to articles that you feel coincides with your beliefs. So it's OK for you to express your side but not for me? You're not controlling the narrative here no matter how hard you try....my friend. Stop trying to make the thread go in a certain direction and to want everyone to be on your side. GET OVER IT...! IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. So you can go sit in a corner and pout because you can't have your way! In fact, The UK people are saying "we don't want to go to war, not in my name." Much of the UK citizenry DO NOT want to be involved in going to war. In fact, they have a hash-tag #not-in-my-name-Theresa-May. The UK people feel that the country has money to go to war but no money for education, police, fire service, the elderly, the disabled, and more. I don't know if you are from the UK or not, but you need to get a grip because many of the UK populace are on-to the UK shenanigans and COMPLETELY disagree with your opinion! ..just enjoy the differences and let it go at that. I"m fine with it...LOL Get inside that thick head of yours that "NOT EVERYONE AGREES WITH YOU." I'm not going back-and-forth with you. If you can't handle someone posting different from you than don't read the posts....For goodness sakes it's like posting to a juvenile...! GROW UP....! GOOD BYE...!

Actually, it's not much different than supplying a link. I just happen to add bits and pieces of whichever information I find important and add it to my posts, that's why I put them in "parenthesis." I prefer not to write just a few words like "see this is what happened yesterday" and just add a link. I meticulously do my research and provide the information I come across while also providing some links here-and-there along with my own thoughts. It's the way I do it and you are certainly welcome not to read it. It makes no difference to me one way or the other. My posts takes more time than the average posts because I investigate, scrutinize, and question. In any case, the UK is full of sh*t and I and many, many others don't trust a word they say and question their motives. Also I posted a video link to Paul Craig Roberts. He is not directly quoted in my posts. Anyway, you should be able to watch the Georg Galloway video now...have a nice day...Ciao...

Well, you could spare your energy cause if you haven't actually been involved in the forensic analysis, all you're doing is, as someone else said, echo chambering other's random's people's opinion.

Now, if you read the OPCW report, they have:
- identified the three persons that have been poisoned
- took blood samples from those persons that they identified
- took environmental samples from the area
- confirmed the presence of the toxic chemical both in the blood and environmental samples
- confirmed the identity of the chemical as being that claimed by the UK

Now you can choose to believe the OPCW or not. But only the OPCW and the UK have had access to the forensic evidence, so pretty much anything else is just speculation. But you are free to "research" on it, I agree it's fascinating to see the kind of theories people can come up with...

I don't think anyone could have a problem with that, simply because you haven't been seen to do anything of the sort.

UPDATE 1-Ex-spy poisoning shows how reckless Russia is - UK spy chief

LONDON, April 12 (Reuters) - The poisoning of a former Russian double agent in Britain with a nerve agent last month shows “how reckless Russia is prepared to be”, the head of Britain’s GCHQ spy agency said on Thursday in a scathing attack on the Kremlin.



In his first public speech since taking over as head of Britain’s eavesdropping intelligence agency last year, Jeremy Fleming said the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, southern England, was “particularly stark and shocking”.



He accused Russia of “not playing to the same rules” and blurring the boundaries between criminal and state activity.

Strange, isn't it, how it's only being reported on the Russian (pseudo-)state controlled media?

Not found a truly Swiss source yet but loads in German (Germany .... .com sites).
One here. It was an OPCW Lab in Spiez Switzerland.

Yes, as I said I can't find a Swiss source. I also checked tonight's news quickly - not a word.

Firstly: I don't think the Swiss Lab is allowed to publish it's own results, being part of the OPCW.

The Russians I'm sure had access to the detailed OPCW report. The only question now is: Did they misinterpret (on purpose or not) a Swiss phrasing? If the Swiss aren't sure it was the poison the Brits say it is, they will say so. Exactly so: It is not sure/proven/our results do not reliably conclude this.
