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

OK...here are some of the links with stories about the independent Swiss Lab finding. "The Swiss center mentioned is the Spiez Laboratory controlled by the Swiss Federal Office for Civil Protection and ultimately by the country’s defense minister. The lab is also an internationally recognized center of excellence in the field of the nuclear, biological, and chemical protection and is one of the five centers permanently authorized by the OPCW." I'm not surprised by this...let's see where this goes. Maybe now Russia will finally get some vindication. Our western leaders have gone absolutely insane, even bombing Syria without any confirmations. Funny how Teresa May-Not did not ask Parliament about the bombing. I guess she didn't want the same answer Parliament gave Tony "The Warmonger" Blair during the ill-fated Iraq war. Anyway...let's see how the UK tries to wiggle out of this one. Fortunately "lies have short legs and the truth can live forever." (There are plenty more other links as well) Most are reporting what Lavrov said, which doesn't make the story any less legitimate. It seems that the WHOLE story about the poison test results were not revealed and this is what Lavrov is referring to. We'll see....!

ZeroHedge
"Remember how we were told my the politicians (not the scientists) that a deadly Novichok nerve agent - produced by Russia - was used in the attempted assassination of the Skripals? Remember the 50 questions (here and here) we had surrounding the 'facts' as Theresa May had laid them out? Ever wonder why, given how utterly deadly we were told this chemical was, the Skripals wondered around for a few hours after being 'infected' and then days later, survived with no chronic damage?
Well those doubts may well have just been answered as according to the independent Swiss state Spiez lab, the substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, which was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states."

RightEdition

OpedNews
The Swiss center sent the results to the OPCW. However, the UN chemical watchdog limited itself only to confirming the formula of the substance used to poison the Skripals in its final report without mentioning anything about the other facts presented in the Swiss document.

DailyMirror.co.uk
I will have to add in the DailyMirror story, they are lying. The lie they state is that "Scientists from the Nobel Prize-winning OPCW found that "high purity" Novichok was used in the poisoning, backing the UK." This is nothing but propaganda.
The OPCW NEVER said it was Novichok and OPCW asked the Swiss laboratory to perform the tests.

YourNewWire
The substance used on Sergei Skripal in Salisbury was a nerve agent called BZ, according to the results of an independent study by a Swiss lab that throws the “official narrative” pushed by the United Kingdom government into serious doubt.
BZ was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US and UK.
The United Kingdom has accused Moscow of poisoning ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal in the UK town of Salisbury with what British experts claimed was an A234 nerve agent, which had allegedly been produced in the Soviet Union.
However the independent results of the tests by the Swiss laboratory have disproved the UK government allegations.

**Mind you, the main stream media loonies like BBC and CNN will probably not report this. If they do, they will definitely put a spin on it. Regardless of where this new information leads, I ALWAYS knew that the UK was lying and up to no good. It's clear if you've been following politics CLOSELY (I mean very closely) for the last 7-10 years (especially since 9/11). Those who haven't think that they can just jump into the frame of the political arena and completely grasp what's happening. It's much like arriving during the middle of a movie. You have to gather information about what was happening in the movie prior to your arrival in order to understand what the movie is about. Western leaders have gone crazy and want to take us all with them. Their motives are devious and because the west is losing dominance on the world stage, they are going to put up a fight to hell with their citizenry. I expect more lies, false flags, attacks on sovereign countries and more until they get it that the world is changing...! Good Lord help us all...Have a nice evening everyone...

Check out this short YouTube video if you have time it's about 4 minutes long:

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

LOL, ProsperityJoy, you're just jumping on this new rumor?!

Sure, I'd trust the Swiss lab. the most (sorry, prejudice? LOL. The Swiss have no reason to jump on anybody's boat, so yeah, I would) BUT - to put in in bold like you do: The Swiss Lab has not said anything publicly yet.

We got a British rumor now and a Russian one.

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

I wouldn't trust a single crap of NATO/US/UK propaganda unless the truth came out.

They simply lied too much to be trusted.

Not that the Russians are anyhow better. It's just both sides lost any trust long time ago.

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

In case of confusion the OPCW report states;
Quote:
The results of the analysis by the OPCW designated laboratories of environmental and biomedical samples collected by the OPCW team confirm the findings of the United Kingdom relating to the identity of the toxic chemical that was used in Salisbury and severely injured three people.
it also states;
Quote:
The name and structure of the identified toxic chemical are contained in the full classified report of the Secretariat, available to States Parties.
Source

If the Russians want to claim the OPCW found something different then they have the full OPCW report in their hands?

One should think so as they're the accused.

Still no Swiss news on this claim that the Swiss lab. named a different poison. If there was any truth in this, there would be SOME info/reaction on it on Swiss news. Me thinks.

This is two days old and kind of interesting for those who speak German:

I agree with most of your premises about the global political situation, about Western leaders gone crazy and would rather risk sinking the ship than losing the race, etc. - but you lose credibility by attempting to condescend. It makes you look like a fool and also hurts the credibility of your arguments.

Russia are "State" members of OPCW so they are entitled to all such reports.

Thanks for the SRF article. Just one item makes me suspicious of it; it repeats the false claim "the head of the British Chemical Weapons Laboratory said in an interview that his laboratory was unable to determine the exact source of the poison".

What he actually said was "it is not our job to determine the source" which is quite different.

Well, yes. We, the public (at least in the UK) can only demand that state authorities release that information. The BBC doesn't have more to say either. It's probably part of the OPCW protocol. Would you have liked them to release the formula to the public, perhaps with easy manufacture and administration instructions on the back? Would that have made you happier?......
I've been pondering this and I don't see why the OPCW can not simply say - in the public part of the report - it was Nowitschok or it was not Nowitschok. After all, the entire world knows that name now (without being able to produce it).

What is the gain in calling upon an independent organisation who then basically says "yeah, we know what it was now but we only tell those who already say they know and if others want to know the truth they have to ask ..... those who already said they know"?

What kind of sick game is this?! Something happened. And somebody accused someone. Nothing special about that. But normal procedures are, a third party checks it out, takes the stand and a judge decides who's in the wrong.
Not sure who could take the role of the judge here - Den Haag? - however, this whole thing contradicts any constitutionality. It's childsplay on the highest level and one is tempted to say "oh, grow up".
And no, I don't see it at all as sophisticated political activity. And the longer everybody insists on speculating instead of goingn forward clearing things up, the more I'm tempted to wonder: What ist this supposed to take my mind/attention of?

To be clear: Like anyone else I ain't got a clue who's guilty of what, therefore I don't have an opinion about it either. I'm still naively waiting for the proof one way or the other. Who knows, I might even live to hear it. Should they lock all evidence up for 50 years it's doubtful though.

Maybe Switzerland does not read Russian propoganda?

It is not the responsibility of Switzerland to support or deny that is the role of the OPCW.
The OPCW sent the samples to four different laboratories and they have not even publicly confirmed that one of them was in Switzerland.

It strains our credulity to expect us to believe that one lab out of four would come up with a different result!

As always with such incidents like the passenger aircraft downing the strength of the Western case is they have one story line that they stick to.

The weakness of the Russian case is they keep changing their story, usually without supplying any supporting facts.

If they do provide facts then they are dubious. There was the the Russian theory that they have now discarded that the aircraft was shot down by a Ukraine aircraft which story they supported with poorly faked documentation.

The OPCW have an official list of chemical weapons based on the declarations of their members.

Russia never declared Nowitschok to the OPCW therefore it is not on their official list. Such declaration includes not only the name but the detailed specification.
OPCW cannot formally confirm a substance when they do not have an official standard to compare samples with.

That was and is the Russian game of deception.

Well, the 8-year old thanks you for the green pebbles you gave her in this very thread - you won't see this though as I'm on the ignore list. Which is a good thing because I seem to be rather threatening to your blood pressure.

<<Switzerland has not denied Lavrov claims either>>
No it hasn't. That's the interesting part in this. Switzerland will have to speak up in this sooner or later.

However, I usually don't bother denying false accusations either.

There are 19 laboratories permanently authorized by the OPCW, not five as you claim. I suppose you stated five to try to reinforce your claim that the Swiss lab was one of the ones used for the Salisbury tests?
Source of the OPCW list

When I say your this sentence of yours about 5 centres was the most accurate part of your post then you will understand why it is not worth me commenting further on your post.

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

Here is some additional information I found about the BZ agent:

"BZ is an odorless military incapacitating agent. (intended to incapacitate rather than kill). It was invented by the Swiss pharmaceutical company Hoffman-LaRoche in 1951. BZ was eventually weaponize for delivery in the M44 generator cluster and the M43 cluster bomb, until all such stocks were destroyed in 1989 as part of a general downsizing of the US chemical warfare program. BZ is odorless and nonirritating with delayed symptoms several hours AFTER contact."

Uhm...sounds familiar since the Skirpals were not "supposedly effected" by the nerve agent for several hours AFTER contact! BZ seems more and more like the culprit! On the other hand information I found about Novichok: Novichok can take effect almost immediately, within 30 seconds to two minutes. In powder form, it might take slightly longer. They are the deadliest nerve agents ever made, with some variants possibly five to eight times more potent than VX and others up to ten times more potent than soman. Keep in mind, one of the scientist that developed Novichok back in the 70's and 80's is working for the United States...! I'm sure "all" nerve agents were probably not destroyed! Just like Novichok was "supposedly" destroyed but still made by some entities! Some of you are trying to make it seem like the UK have some master plan behind their buffoonery. NO...UK staged a false flag and GOT CAUGHT...! Anyway, the plot thickens...Have a nice day everyone...

If the agent used was BZ then how is this statement relevant?

The Russian claim is that Novichok never existed so how could it have been "supposedly" destroyed?

Exactly.

i know that you understand this, but many people don't... We can speculate all we like, and many people believe that the internet can / should give them the answers to absolutely everything, but the fact remains that there are things that we shouldn't have access to. When an event is subject to intelligence reports, possibly coming from active agents in the field, for the sake of their safety, security and ongoing ability to get access to such intelligence, then the public at large do not have the right to know everything. I'm reminded of the old wartime saying...'Loose lips sink ships'.

Lavrov's pretty busy at the moment. He was in talks on Friday regarding the downing of Flight MH17. If we can't get logical answers from him on that, then we're buggered getting anything logical from him on anything else, and personally, I see MH17 as a far bigger issue than Salisbury.

it's just as reliable as western propaganda.
No, it really isn't.
Exactly. Russian propaganda works far more reliably .

Exactly.

i know that you understand this, but many people don't... We can speculate all we like, and many people believe that the internet can / should give them the answers to absolutely everything, but the fact remains that there are things that we shouldn't have access to. When an event is subject to intelligence reports, possibly coming from active agents in the field, for the sake of their safety, security and ongoing ability to get access to such intelligence, then the public at large do not have the right to know everything. I'm reminded of the old wartime saying...'Loose lips sink ships'.....
I possibly misunderstand what you are saying but if I'm not: According to your arguing, the public should then also not be "informed" by the governement (the British in this case) that they strongly suspect Russia. Either the whole story or none of it.

Because as you say:.'Loose lips sink ships'.
Doesn't look too comfi for our ship at the moment, does it.
