The “Russian” Poisoning of the Skirpals In Context

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, by now you know that the British government falsely claimed that irrefutable evidence proved that the Russian government was behind the poisoning of a former Russian double agent and his daughter using a “Novichok” nerve agent.

In response, the UK and US carried out the largest expulsion of Russian diplomats in history.

Now that the wheels have come off this farce, it is interesting to note previous examples of the West falsely blaming Russia for bad acts.

Official German intelligence service documents show that, in 1994, the German intelligence services planted (original German) plutonium on an airplane coming from Russia, as a way to frame Russia for exporting dangerous radioactive materials which could end up in the hands of terrorists and criminals.

This frame-up job was so successful at whipping up fear that it got German Chancellor Kohl re-elected, and the U.S. used it as an excuse to “help” secure Russia’s nuclear facilities, as a way to get access to Russian nuclear secrets.

While everyone “knows” that the Kremlin poisoned Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko with radioactive polonium, a very high-level French counterterrorism official, Paul Barril,  alleges that French, US and UK intelligence worked together to kill Litvinenko and to frame Russia:

And see this.

U.S. government documents declassified in October 2017 admitted that a very high-level 1962 meeting of U.S. government officials – separate from the Joint Chiefs of Staff – also discussed:The possibility of U.S. manufacture or acquisition of Soviet aircraft …. There is a possibility that such aircraft could be used in a deception operation designed to confuse enemy planes in the air, to launch a surprise attack against enemy installations or in a provocation operation in which Soviet aircraft would appear to attack U.S. or friendly installations in order to provide an excuse for U.S. intervention.

Newsweek ran an article headlined (all caps in original Newsweek title):

U.S. GOVERNMENT PLANNED FALSE FLAG ATTACKS TO START WAR WITH SOVIET UNION, JFK DOCUMENTS SHOW

The article notes:

The U.S. government once wanted to plan false flag attacks with Soviet aircraft to justify war with the USSR or its allies, newly declassified documents surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy show.

***

False flag attacks are covert operations that make it look like an attack was carried out by another group than the group that actually carried them out.

Indeed, falsely blaming other countries for terrorism or violence is the oldest way to create a “justification” for war.

The governments have certainly learned how to mess with the thinking gear of people. I spent most of my life working with inanimate objects not spending much time figuring out how people think. Most of the people that I did try to figure out were personally known to me. It was only in the last few years of my career that I paid any real attention to how people are manipulated. I knew people were easily manipulated for years, just think about how the war in Iraq in 2003 was so popular amoung most people.

Hi, I'm from the government, and I can tell you anything I want.

It says so right here in the NDAA regulations and not so fine print.

We live in a little truthy backwater on ZH here.

Most people stumbling around on the street with their face in their phone screen are still clueless to the massive lies being spoon fed them every minute of every day.

A lot of the peeps even like a steady diet of lies. ..... It's more comfortable until it's not.

The problem for governments using false flag operations like this is many more people are no longer trusting their own governments and quite rightly so. Human minds are reinforcing the concept of untrustworthy governments that actually lasts far longer than the elected period of time of those who purport to represent the population we now know to be a deceit.

As example, take Blair ex-UK prime minister who concocted the whole Iraq dodgy dossier in the UK who most people I know now call him a war criminal but nobody will put on trial in the Hague. He has not been PM since 2007 but nobody forgets the criminal acts he instigated and supported and will be remembered for a long time for this. So how do you make Blair appear human again to the population?

You can apply this concept to so many elected criminals in the west ... join it up those that rule us are in fact criminals not ordinary people. The psychos rule over us and to them we are no more than dead meat.

why even use a heading like that - it helps give it credibility, for the headline only readers.

 

Why do you think the MSM think very carefully how they word their headlines -- they know THAT is the thing that sticks in peoples minds, and often the only thing read.

If Vladimir Putin really wanted to kill these traitors, he would have sent a Babushka to do the job with her anti-freeze vodka.

The babushka who made this counterfeit vodka told officials, "what's the big deal - they were all going to die eventually."

Alcohol poisoning from counterfeit vodka kills at least 49 in Russia

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4047402/25-men-women-killed-dri…

So yeah, 'military grade' super secret squirrel Russian nerve agent can't kill two people yet a Russian Babushka's fake vodka can kill 40+ people.

The context of the entire Russia mania is ludicrous and the fake news is so ridiculous that war must be close.

A) Congress votes unanimously to sanction Russia for tampering the election by hacking and everybody in DC makes believe they've never heard of the dead staffer.

B) Putin decides to poison some guy right before their election using a special poison only Russia has. Their involvement in the "investiagtion" is forbidden,

C) The maverick outsider says the US will be pulling out of Syria and ~ a week later Assad decides to shoot chemicals at people like no one will ever find out. Trump calls Assad an animal and blames Putin.

There are a few possibilities. Trump could truly be a dotard moron and believe this shit or he's being strong-armed. 

It's either that or some sort of wacko plan. Even the most ardent deplorables are having a hard time with this.

The British developed VX at Porton Down. Since VX was used to murder Kim Jong Un's brother, Kim Jong Nam, that must mean that the British were responsible for his murder. Where's the outrage over that?

Wasn’t the kid who tried to steal that poster and ended up in prison there, sent home dead a member of the tribe?

This shit always points back to a singularity.

I am not a racist. There are members of all stripes that object to idiocracy. These are the real thinkers and great people of the world. False narratives of nationalism, religious fanaticism and  worship of stupidity have brought us to the ugliest point in Simian history ever.

Too late now for real Human reasoning, no need to read tea leaves or consult astrologers.

I hope we can do better next time. If there is one.

" It is beyond me, how the blame for Litvinenko's death, could be blamed on any state actor "

The same for all the "Russia did it" hysteria surrounding the downing of MH17.

If Russia had really shot down this civilian aircraft the Western Media will never had "let it go".

But more to the facts. The air-crash investigation has not released its full report, why not? what's in it that the public cannot be allowed to know about?

All four participants to the air-crash investigation had to sign an NDA. Now that is a very strange thing to impress upon countries who have lost citizens in a air accident. In fact it is most probably unprecedented.

Putin is clever and would not use means to discredit Russia and himself.   The Skripal incident was the first part of a CIA/MI6 scheme to incite hatred of Russia/Putin, which would increase when a later preplanned Syrian chemical attack would be blamed on Putin/Assad to justify US intervention in Syria.  Trump's announced future withdrawal from Syria was a fraud to conceal US plans to intervene in Syria.   Trump needs a war to blame for a market crash, devaluing of US dollar, to appease neo-cons and thwart a deep-state/NWO power grab.

Everything is deceit.

Not in my general vicinity it isn't.

I don't lie myself, nor do I keep company with those who do.

It took a long time to quit the habit, and I've had relapses during "traffic stops" and a couple of other interactions with organised liars, who have sufficient powers to back up their bullshit.

Needless to say, I don't have that many friends, and the number of places I am able to grace with my precence as a worker are limited, but at least I have a good idea of what is, and isn't, real in my life on a daily basis.

It infuriates western officials that time and again Putin goes to the UN to make his case about how international laws are broken by western countries, read: NATO. The US is a regular international scofflaw and treaty stomper, and the lies just continue to stream out of the western media to cover as much of it as possible.

It was sprayed onto his house door handle by Vladimir Putin personally.

And as it was "Russian Military grade nerve agent" they only had time to visit his wife's grave, go to the pub and then for a meal before it took effect and partially poisioned them both.

And if you don't believe that then you're obviously an anti-semite peadophile racist traitor.

Do I really need a sarc tag ?

I think what really happened was they ate some dodgy shellfish with that meal and MI6 didn't waste the opportunity

When I was writing press releases for a German State Member of Parliament, the sentence 'ah we don't want to include ..... xyz' was mentioned often when he gave me facts to word the release.

These were all trivial low level things, but at the time I thought nothing of it. Manipulation is everywhere.

The gallows awaits these filthy demon.

As the S continues to HTF many will personally undertake the apprehension, punishment and permenant elimination of those, their families and their property.

Voting, taxation and banking are already marginalised and perceived as a cancerous growth on humanity.

They poison the minds and bodies of our children and defecate on all that is good.

There will be no justice for them just the new Neurenburg Trials.

We are the humans, we are the many, we will prevail against you. 

Be afraid, very afraid, for we approach your doors seeking not revenge but the total annhilation  of your seed, your memory and all your sad works.

Strong words, spoken from a weak and marginalised position, I'm sorry to have to tell you.

I have a friend who has just discovered David Icke. Now david Icke says a lot of sensible and good things in my opinon, But the public perception of the man is "nutcase". My friend being moved by the essential truths in David's teachings has become so red pilled (I hope I got the colour right) that he is motivated to try and share what he is learning, and of course, the reactions is exactly what you'd expect, his "best mate" has started calling him a "nutter" rather than accept that everything he ever believed has been fed to him carefully, for teh purpose of enriching and empowering a small and incredibly nasty "elite"..

You have to weild the truth carefully, these days as it's a weapon banned by the government, and if you just wave it about all the time, (((they))) will lock you up!

Never forget, (((they))) and their minions far outnumber us, until enough of us turn away form (((their))) teachings. And the only way you can bring that about is to live an "enviable life", whilst being seen to be simple and truthful. It's taken me at least two decades to learn that trick. (You will know when you have, as you lose the majority of your old friends, and a fair few relatives as well!) Many people find the lies more comforting than the stark truth that there are a bunch of nasty bastards in charge, who's motivations are not aligned with buildng a decent society, where everyone has a decent opportunity to live a decent and uplifting life, rather than being enslaved in mental prisons of money, tainted food, and fornication. 

Even when the SHTF, they will STILL be looking for "leaders".. And leaders, are good at "leading", but not so good, these days, at "navigation".
