Russia Demolishes UK Poisoning 'Hoax' During Emergency Security Council Meeting

Authored by Alex Christoforou via TheDuran.com,

Russia’s UN envoy blasted the UK’s attempt to blame the poisoning Sergei and Yulia Skripal on Moscow, describing the entire hoax as a “theater of absurd.”

The extraordinary UN Security Council meeting was requested by Russia, following the announcement made by the secretive British Porton Down chemical laboratory, that it had not established that the Novichok nerve agent used in the poisoning was of Russian origin.

According to RT, top British officials explicitly cited the Porton Down laboratory when pinning the blame on Moscow, so following this revelation their theory started to fall apart, said Vasily Nebenzia, noting that the UK’s secret agencies rushed to help the government, producing new claims based on some “intelligence data.”

Nebenzia asked a series of questions pointing to inconsistencies of the UK’s narrative.

“I don’t even know how to comment on this. It’s some sort of the theater of absurd. You couldn’t have come up with better fake story?”

“Why did we have to wait eight years and [then] decided to [attack the Skripals] two weeks before the elections and several weeks before the world cup? Why did we release him from the country in the first place? Why do that in extremely public and dangerous fashion.”

The fact that the victims of the nerve agent, which is believed to be among the deadliest, managed to survive the attack has also raised serious questions, Nebenzia said.

As RT reports, it could be explained only if an antidote had been administered to them immediately after the exposure. British officials, however, insisted that no antidote was used, since none existed in the first place. The Skripals managed to walk around for four hours after the exposure, according to the version by the British authorities, yet the police officer who found them lost consciousness immediately.

There are also different versions of how the poison was delivered, leaked and speculated in the British media.

“There are so many versions in wake of the lack of facts and evidence. House of Skripal, the door knob, flowers, buckwheat, or, in fact, the bay leaf?” Nebenzia said.

As the cornerstone allegation that the nerve agent originated from Russia turned out to be without merit, the whole narrative fell apart, Nebenzia said. Arguments that the Novichok nerve agent family originates from Russia, and therefore it was Moscow to blame do not hold water either, the diplomat added.

“We want to state urbi et orbi, Novichok is not copyrighted by Russia,” he stressed.

While the British authorities try to make fun of different theories expressed by Russia-based experts and media, Nebenzia said, Moscow does not have any version of the events due to glaring lack of facts available.

The Russian diplomat stated that the level of intellectual justification used by the UK authorities, namely by the Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, “does not invoke even a smile.”

“Boris Johnson, who constantly proclaims his Russophile [nature], produces an absurd, to use the nicest word I can, absurd and immoral premise that the incident was necessary for Moscow to bring the people together before the [presidential] elections,” Nebenzia stated.

“His comparison of Russia’s Football World Cup with the Berlin Olympics of 1936 was equally immoral,” he continued, adding that unlike the Soviet Union, a large British delegation took part in those Games.

UK envoy Karen Pierce stood by her government’s firm belief that there is “no plausible alternative explanation” and that that Russia was “highly likely” behind the Salisbury incident. She called it part of a “wider pattern of irresponsible Russian behavior” and accused Moscow of constant “aggression” over the recent years.

“Russia seeks to undermine the international institutions which have kept us safe since the end of the Second World War,” Pierce said.

The two envoys also resorted to literary references in sparring with each other, with Nebenzia illustrating the British position by quoting the Red Queen from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, who demanded “sentence first, verdict afterwards.”

Pierce retorted that another quote from the same book, about “believing six impossible things before breakfast,” suited her Russian colleague better, though it matched her own government’s case built on assertions and rhetoric.

All of which, as Tom Luongo suggests, points to the imminent demise of May's government.

The United Kingdom is headed for a break-up.  Not today or tomorrow, mind you but, sooner than anyone would like to handicap, especially in this age of coalition government at any cost.

By responding to the alleged poisoning of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia with histrionics normally reserved for The View, Theresa May’s government has set the stage for its own collapse.

Government’s fall when the people lose confidence in them.  May has bungled everything she has touched as Prime Minister, from Brexit talks and her relationship with Donald Trump to her response (or lack thereof) to the escalating level of domestic terrorism and her pathetic campaign during last year’s snap election.

When I confront such obvious ineptitude it’s not hard to believe that wasn’t the plan to begin with.

Since her initial meeting with Donald Trump after his election where it looked like the two would get along, May has become more and more belligerent to both him and his base.  While he continues to affirm our special relationship “The Gypsum Lady” as I like to call her makes mistake after mistake.

The latest of which is pushing everyone east of the Dneiper River in Ukraine to denounce the Russians and President Vladimir Putin personally for this alleged poisoning in Salisbury a month ago.

The result of which was the largest round of diplomatic expulsions in a century, if not ever.

And now that the whole “Russia did it” narrative has been skewered by May’s own experts at Porton Downs, she stands alone along with her equally inept and embarrassing Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson.

The calls for their jobs will only intensify here.

Anyone buying this? Like how the fuck does anyone believe a god damned word out of the mouths of the Anglo-American-Zionist establishment? It's getting embarrassing. I hate these people and I feel a bit of embarrassment for them due to mirror neurons. Like what the ever living fuck is going on? I am so ashamed of our pathetic governments and their obvious and total capture by certain elites, without even the pretense of representing the people of these countries. Five Eyes my ass, more like Five fucking idiot factories.

This will go the way of MH-17.  "United" EU/NATO dopes claiming Russian guilt before investigation.  Secretive (i.e. non-transparent) investigation that will take years.  No conclusion as it does not fit the propaganda... except that it will be used as "fact" in future references for political gain, since people are too dumb to remember anything longer than a 24 hour news cycle.

Where is the manhunt for the perpetrator??  Surely after reviewing "5,000" hours of CCTV surveillance, there must be a sketch of the alleged assailant(s)???  Calling William Bonzai... we need you asap.

It never matters whether there's any truth to these tales. Psyops are almost always about creating a narrative and sticking to it, regardless of facts/truth. Get the story out there ASAP and keep everyone repeating it. Twist 'facts'. Twist 'logic'. Rinse. Repeat. The narrative gets implanted in the mind and remains there for most people. It gets repeated in endless, uncritical feedback loops and takes on a life of its own. Lies are truth in our Orwellian world of the insane.

No ,it's not . Because he also closed the San Francisco consulate  earlier ,using mafia methods,against all the international laws . And gave Russia sanctions based on fake news. And stated ,ow recently at the UNSC ,through HIS bimbo,that US believes Russia is guilty,based on no proofs and is supporting Britain.

So ,he expels 60 diplomats,closes the Seattle consulate based on fake news and then you say he reinstates them? I haven't seen them back and heard Russia say it,but if true this looks like the actions of a bubbling idiot who does not know how to behave on the international scene.

THOSE ARE ANSWERS.

This is a little too much. :)

Have a look at the finishing of north stream 2 pipiline end of 2019 and the canceled contracts between Gazprom and Ukrainian Naftogaz in 2019, transit reduced to 10% of the actual amount, nothing to steal there.

Putin will freeze the Ukrainians back into his eurasian community. Or the west has to pay their gaz bill.

 

But you cant sell this as evil to the western public since Ukraine de facto steals the Russian Gaz and doesnt want to pay world market prices. So you have to sell the russiaevil-meme on other channels. Thats all.

The Syrian Arab Army has reportedly captured 11 British special forces during the liberation of east Ghouta. They were captured as two groups in separate villages (say 6 per group, less one escaped/dead). Not that long ago the previous Brit Prime Minister announced that he was sending 6 SAS into Syria to fight ISIS (yeah right - fight with more like) so the numbers sort of fit a couple of SAS fighting units.

On 18 March, the Russian spokeswoman announced they had a surprise for the British. A few days later, Sergei 'By the Rules' Lavrov announced the war in Syria was no longer a proxy war (ISIS as proxy) but NATO troops were actually involved fighting with the terrorists. The Syrians are holding the SAS members individually in separate secure military sites to pre-empt the USUK accidentally converting them to collateral damage. Reports from Syria suggest SF from other NATO countries have also been captured. The NATO forces have supposedly giving targetting information to the terrorists for their mortar/MLRS/ballistic missile attacks on Damascus. The targets included a school, market, hospital and the Russian Embassy. The Skirpal incident may be an attempt to pressure Russia to release the Brit prisoners. That wont work as they are  held by the SAA and they won't fall for this after doing so at Aleppo. Interesting times.

           SAA also captured what appeared to be the While Helmets' headquarters in East Gouta:

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) unit combing the area found gas masks, chemical weapons-proof uniforms, stolen ambulances and fire-fighting brigade vehicles from the real Syrian Civil Defense, even the toll-free number 113 belonging to the real fire-fighting brigade is still on the vehicles, they just placed their printed emblem next to it...

Most of the missiles, ammunition, and chemical substances found were of Israeli and NATO make

"...Nusra Front and the Free Syrian Army are planning to detonate improvised chemical munitions stuffed with chlorine toxic gas in a number of settlements controlled by these terrorist groups.

The spokesperson noted that the militants are going to film the consequences of the alleged use of chemical weapons in order to place the blame for civilian deaths on Damascus and justify breaching the ceasefire in the province of Daraa.

Video recording equipment has already been transported to the scene and preparations for the provocation are underway, according to the Russian Defense ministry..."

Ukraine air traffic controller suggests Kiev military shot down passenger plane

Jul 17, 2014

ETN received information from an air traffic controller in Kiev on Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

This Kiev air traffic controller is a citizen of Spain and was working in the Ukraine. He was taken off duty as a civil air-traffic controller along with other foreigners immediately after a Malaysia Airlines passenger aircraft was shot down over the Eastern Ukraine killing 295 passengers and crew on board.

The air traffic controller suggested in a private evaluation and basing it on military sources in Kiev, that the Ukrainian military was behind this shoot down. Radar records were immediately confiscated after it became clear a passenger jet was shot down.

Military air traffic controllers in internal communication acknowledged the military was involved, and some military chatter said they did not know where the order to shoot down the plane originated from.

They should ask Trump. He must have expelled the Russian diplomats based on a very concrete evidence...or fake news...I forgot which one.

I conclude the only interpretation of the Skripal story is a warning to all involved- be they heads of state or random insider with damning info (Skripal and Steele were pals)- to fall in line. If some interested parties have novochok, and demonstrate that any use of it will fall on Russia regardless of how flim glam the narrative is, then who is safe?

nobody, no matter their position. They can do a head of state and their whole family and security detail from a quarter mile away. 

Watch how it played out. Bolton returns from the grave, diplomats expelled, war plans back on track. 

There is really no other way to turn it. A very dangerous escalation in the power game.

I think Britain should make a James Bond movie ; this will be more credible to the sheeple.

I propose some names:

-Shitfinger

-License to kill Britain's last credibility

-The world is not enough for Anglo-zionist lies

-Die another day from Novichok

-Casino Westminster Royale

-The Skripal spy who hated me

-You can only die twice from Novichok

-The sky is falling on the Britain

The movie should feature :

-Boris Johnson as James Bond( I know ,the image is frightful,but he does represent what Britain is today)

-Theresa May as Pussy Galore(imagine her in a bikini) accusing Peeuh-tin of being a criminal

 Since the production is international ,it will include:

-Emmanuel Macron as inspecteur  Clouseau

-Justin Trudeau as the Pink Panther(he does not know too much about a panther,but he likes pink)

-The Donald,as a well known reality  TV star and because he is a stable genius offered to play multiple roles. All at once:Superman,Batman,Spiderman,Xmen;even Wonder Woman if Stormy can lend him her boobs;he has the hair

They all pursue the world villain,Mr. Putin ,who is played by himself ,as they could not find somebody else of his statue.

No Novichok can be found,but Clouseau ,involved in the plot,will provide some "white fleueur " ,which will be as good (see Colin Power antecedent) so they all can be "given back their faces"

No one is buying this and you're right on the money. They are so arrogant to still believe that they have total control of the people and their faith. They also have not considered that the Russians have been on the receiving end of these tactics for a very long time and are way too intelligent to stand down and let their reputation be torn further. It's over.

The only variable is how much damage the empire will do on its way out.

"I am so ashamed of our pathetic governments and their obvious and total capture by certain elites, without even the pretense of representing the people of these countries."

 AMEN.

However, the degree to which there are no publicly significant opposition groups which are not effectively controlled means that it looks politically impossible to change that tragic trajectory, since the "best" practical alternatives tend to be basically the same, or even worse.

I repost my comment under:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-03-15/saker-warns-when-dealing-bear-hubris-suicidal

The Saker Warns: "When Dealing With A Bear, Hubris Is Suicidal"

While I agreed with the superficially correct analysis in that article I linked above, it has not done anything remotely close to attempting to "reverse engineer" morality from physics. Hence, it also does not pay enough attention to the deeper reasons for how and why the dominate Anglo-American (Zionist) Finance Empire is the manifestation of the best organized crime, resulting in the international bankers having become the banksters which are the puppet masters of NATO countries.

Follow the money to its source to approach understanding the underlying issue throughout current geopolitical events, namely, that some countries, such as Russia and China, while also based on being able to make their money out of nothing as debts, are no longer utterly subservient to the Bank of International Settlements, which is the supreme private central bank supervising other central banks. In particular, Russia has an abundance of natural resources, while the money systems control access to those resources. The resurgent degree of Russian nationalism, such that Russia no longer has political puppets utterly under the control of the international bankers, is the root reason for Russia being demonized by the puppet politicians governing NATO countries.

The vicious feedback spirals of the funding of all aspects of the political processes have resulted in the most socially successful politicians throughout NATO countries becoming the banksters' puppets, while enough of the masses of muppets vote for those puppets. Hence, the appearance of criminally insane hubris in the face of an abundance of atomic weapons. However, virtually all of those kinds of superficially correct analyses then tend to collapse back to old fashion moralities, without themselves attempting to be up-dated through reconciliation with the perception of human beings and civilization as manifestations of general energy systems.

If there is a future for an about exponentially advancing technological civilization, then that would require series of intellectual scientific revolutions and profound paradigm shifts in political science, which were inspired and guided by the profound paradigm shifts already achieved by mathematical physics, and other physical sciences. For instance, the awesome progress in the structural theory of organic chemistry was what enabled the creation of nerve gases, as extremely toxic chemicals. In order to put that into proper perspective, consider how the banksters arranged for their puppet politicians to implement alcohol prohibition, when ethanol is the fundamental chemical of organic chemistry.

The history of Western Civilization becoming profoundly psychotic is much worse than most authors present with their superficially correct analyses, followed by bogus "solutions" which are similarly superficial. For instance, the article I linked  above repeats the view that these kinds of political problems are mostly due to simply that "people do not care."

"That is why 'they' got away with 9/11 and why 'they' will continue to get away with future false-flags because the people lied to, realize, at least on some level, that they are being lied to and yet they simply don’t care."

From a practical point of view, what does superficially "caring" matter, or make material difference to increasingly sophisticated and integrated systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, when those systems of enforcing frauds have been prevailing for thousands of years? There is no reasonable doubt that Globalized Neolithic Civilization is a slavery system, based on the manifestation of the methods of organized crime, during which time, about exponentially advancing technologies have enabled the about exponentially increasing symbolic robberies, achieved through the means of enforcing frauds.

That about exponentially increasing fraudulence is driving more people to notice the accumulating apparent anomalies, such as the criminal insanities revolving around attempting to start wars, when the risks of those wars threaten provoking the use of weapons of mass destruction spinning out of any human control.

Since it was series of intellectual scientific revolutions and profound paradigm shifts in physical science that enabled making and maintaining arsenals of weapons of mass destruction, what is theoretically imperative is for political science to go through similar series of profound paradigm shifts, in ways which enable the development of morality which is consistent with physical science, and particularly consistent with the principle of the conservation of energy.

To more effectively cope with the ways that the biggest and best organized gangsters dominated Civilization, enough people should better understand how and why Civilization necessarily operates according to the methods of organized crime, because the murder systems necessarily dominated and directed the development of Civilization towards maliciousness maximization.

While most of the political puppets and masses of muppets may appear to be relatively incompetent political idiots, who "do not care"  about their society becoming based on about exponentially increasing fraudulence, from the perspective of those people, who have adapted for generation after generation to living INSIDE social slavery systems, their ability to make and maintain their living probably depends upon them not "caring"  in any publicly significant ways, since, for them, AGREEING WITH LIES WAS REWARDED, WHILE DISAGREEING WAS PUNISHED.

The main theme of the prodigious progress in physical science has been the development of UNITARY MECHANISMS to replace the previous sets of mistaken DUALITIES.  Superficial analyses of the problems driven by false fundamental dichotomies, and the related impossible ideals, tend to collapse back to bogus "solutions"  based on the same old impossible ideals, despite that those ideals misunderstand the mechanisms of how things actually work in the most absurdly backward ways possible.

The article I linked above correctly presented the increasing levels of egregious hypocrisies manifested by the ruling classes of Globalized Neolithic Civilization, particularly in NATO countries. Indeed, there are no reasonable doubts that those ruling classes are becoming increasingly psychotic psychopaths, while those they rule over tend to match that by becoming increasingly incompetent political idiots, who look like they "do not care."

However, those masses of muppets have almost nowhere to turn to for any alternative politics than turn towards some different sort of controlled "opposition,"  which will present relatively good analyses, then collapse back to the bogus "solutions"  based on old-fashioned moralities.

I recommend perceiving ENERGY IS SPIRIT.

Doing so sufficiently will result in recognizing that the dominate Civilization has inverted the concepts of time, space and entropy, such that everything is publicly perceived in the most absurdly backward ways possible. In particular, the biggest and best organized gangsters are able to publicly present themselves as NOT being so, but that ONLY some others are.

The biggest bullies' bullshit, which became the banksters' bullshit, has been built into the dominate natural languages and philosophy of science that almost everyone was taught to think and communicate with. Hence, it is barely possible to exaggerate the degree to which the kinds of superficially correct analyses presented in the article I have again linked above are important to appreciate, but that doing so on such superficial levels is NOT enough.
