An unsatisfactory and suspicious ‘end’ to the Skripal affair, the threat of another false flag over Syria, an incestuous EUNATO army, and a Brexit that is no longer Brexit. Try as hard as they may, there is no way anyone can convincingly suggest that these outcomes are random. Those who continue to push for them are gambling with every human life on Earth.
Although Yuria Skripal was discharged from hospital some weeks ago, we don’t know where to. And while her father Sergei is pretty perky now, he’s not quite perky enough to speak to us. The last ‘solid’ news was that the two would be given false identities, and resettled in the US under the auspices of the CIA.
There seems to me an indelible Truth on one issue in particular: if the pair were going to play ball with the UK/EUNATO line on the poisoning, they’d have been wheeled out in front of the media by now.
Yuria’s cousin told Russian media yesterday that she “doesn’t sound like herself on the phone…..one senses she is under duress”. But surely she is the innocent victim of an evil Russian plot, and therefore her every word would be a powerful weapon in the non-stop rush around the never-ending maze of propaganda we’ve seen from all sides?
Lest anyone should forget, this was the timeline on the brief sprint from the Skripals being attacked to missiles raining down on Syria:
- March 5th – news of attack on couple breaks. The Daily Telegraph writes, ‘Reports suggest Col Skripal had recently gone to police claiming he was fearing for his life’. Police have never confirmed this, or indeed even mentioned it. It seems unlikely that a seasoned spy would do such a thing: he’d talk to his Controller.
- March 7th – Skripal senior is “fighting for his life”.
- March 8th – first policeman on the scene “in a serious condition in hospital”. He wasn’t seriously injured at all: he was discharged within 36 hours.
- March 12th – Theresa May tells House of Commons she is sure Skripals were attacked using nerve agent “developed in Russia”. There is no proof of this at all, but plenty of evidence to suggest the agent was lab, not factory, produced.
- March 17th – Russian foreign ministry predicts false flag chemical attack in Syria.
- March 20th – Boris Johnson gives extensive media interviews saying Russian denial of blame “is now untenable”.
- March 21st – Johnson tells MPs Skripal poisoning was “long arm of Russian revenge”, says Jeremy Corbyn doubts about this “regrettable”.
- April 3rd – Johnson tells Die Welle in filmed interview that Porton Down “in no doubt that agent is Novichok made in Russia”. This was clearly untrue.
- April 7th – EU leaders flock to support Johnson having withdrawn diplomats from Russia.
- April 14th – US, Britain and France fire 103 missiles at Damascus to “destroy chemical weapons facilities”. However, 70 out of 103 land on Assad’s conventional armed forces and airfields.
It took just over five weeks to go from largely unsubstantiated claims of a Russian nerve agent attack on two former spies in Britain to the air strike against the régime of Bashar Assad.
When Adlai Stevenson went to the UN in October 1962, he showed conclusive U2 aerial photography of the existence of Russian-supplied ICBMs on Cuba. Eventually, WW3 was averted without a shot being fired. Over Skripal and Syria, the West has fired 103 missiles at the territory of a foreign power with little secure evidence, one risibly unidentifiable shot of some buildings that could’ve been anything anywhere, and no approval from the UK’s sovereign body.'
