Spooks

Two divergent views on the Skripal Case – on two very different media platforms.

Both interviewees were intelligence officers, Annie Machon with MI5 and Boris Volodarsky with the Soviet Army (GRU Spetsnaz).

Boris

Annie

Annie has her own website and this makes her somewhat less spooky.

The UK regime pushed its difficult to swallow narrative very hard from the outset and set an attack dog onto poor Rachel Burdon, a Five Live Breakfast Programme presenter. I really like Rachel. She has a good heart and doesn’t deserve having to work for the BBC. Richie Allen offered his views on her exchange with Tom Tugenhadt,  Conservative MP for Tonbridge, Edenbridge and Malling, on the 13th March. Don’t listen if you are offended by f-bombs.

Fights to the Death

A middleweight contest between the United Kingdom regime and the Russian Federation government:-

In the Blue corner, Novichok.

In the Red corner, BZ.

The probable winner of this bout will be Novichok, on points, because the referee and judges are in fear of their lives.

I refuse to give the BBC money but caught the exchange between one of their charmless interviewers, Stephen Sackur, and Sergey Lavrov on YuoTube. This is worth watching for tips on how to be an ignorant arsehole, and how to deal with an ignorant arsehole in a dignified, sympathetic manner. The Russian Foreign Minister briefly mentioned BZ but Sackur had clearly been warned to dodge this bullet and move quickly on.

BZ is a problem the UK regime has to deal with and they have begun their disinformation campaign today. The existence of this highly likely (to have poisoned the Skripals) substance is totally ignored. Instead, they are telling the British Public, because they think people are stupid,  that the Novichok was delivered in a liquid form. It did not kill the Skripal’s because it was raining that day, but the Novichok is still in Salisbury, in the double agent’s house, and in Salisbury town centre. Over the next few months, there is going to be a very costly cleanup operation at nine sites around the town. There is no danger to Salisbury residents from what is left of the very tiny amount of Novichok that failed to kill the Skripals, even though it was in a very pure form when samples were delivered to the OPCW. Hang on a minute, I thought it was raining…

Experts in nerve agents were disbelieving when they first heard the regime’s story. I imagine they will love another opportunity to debunk it and then ask, “Hey, what about BZ?”

A heavyweight contest between a Christian democracy and a fascistic alliance of evil buggers.

In the Lies corner, an Assad attack against his own people.

In the Fairy Story corner, a film by the White Helmets.

The winner is going to be the fairy story. The members of the OPCW, who are in Douma now to begin their investigation, will be unwilling to issue a true report when it could get them killed. (America’s Top Maniac, John Bolton, encouraged a previous director of the OPCW to resign by telling him, “we know where your kids are”.)

It will be regrettable if the Russian Federation assertion that the gas attack was a fabrication is not verified but the situation the world now finds itself in will not materially change. Indeed, it will probably prove to be a positive result for all who wish to speak truth to corrupt power and naked aggression. When the masks of the deranged slip, people realize, perhaps for the first time, what monsters look like. Flight isn’t an option. Fight is.

The BBC’s Phobia inducing Thought for the Day this morning was – the Russians are hacking everybody’s computers. This had a short shelf life; I haven’t heard it repeated since lunchtime. I wonder what the regime’s Propaganda Division will regale us with tomorrow. When will they tell us about Israel firing missiles into Syria?

Finally today, A Public Statement from The Vets Salisbury (not dated)

As you’ve probably heard in the public domain, Mr Skripal is one of our clients. Today, the government has revealed two guinea pigs belonging to Mr Skripal died and his cat was put down after the unfortunate nerve agent attack on Mr Skripal.

We contacted the police straightaway upon hearing the news that Mr Skripal had been admitted to hospital, and a number of times afterwards, to make them aware of Mr Skripal’s pets and their needs.

We contacted Porton Down – in case the animals may have been taken into isolation. We also offered to take care of Mr Skripal’s pets in his absence. We were never contacted by the police or Porton Down in return regarding Mr Skripal’s pets.

May Day, May Day

I listened to some of the speech given by Prime Minister Theresa May in the House of Commons this afternoon. but after a few minutes of the debate that followed Jeremy Corbyn’s response, I began to feel ill.

I think the main reason I find myself sympathetic to the Syrian and Russian side of the Propaganda War is that I’ve had to deal with false accusations of committing crimes and misdemeanors – and suffer subsequent smearing amounting to character assassination. I know how difficult it is to prove a negative.

There were a lot of very ugly people in the UK regime’s parliament this afternoon. I agree totally with PM May that any individual or group or state that uses chemical weapons of any kind against other human beings should be dealt with severely. Where I differ from her, most of her colleagues and members of the opposition is in their assumption that only Bashir al Assad can possibly use chemical weapons. I have no doubt that all his stocks were not destroyed in 2013, as he and Russia suggest. I’m equally certain that rebel terrorists have committed the heinous crime of using gas and nerve agents against the Syrian Army and civilians on multiple occasions.

I would say that 99% of the talking heads that the BBC invites into its studios take it for granted that Assad carried out the 2013, 2017 and 2018 chemical attacks. I have yet to hear one acknowledge that an Islamic terrorist could do such a thing.

It is just as bad in the United States. On the mainstream media, pundits don’t seem to have heard James Mattis say that the US has no compelling evidence (yet) that Assad was responsible for any of these three attacks. It takes a few minutes to find a source online that has this to say:-

However, the UN’s own extensive 2013 investigation into the first reported uses of chemical weapons in Syria support the consistently stated Russian position that the armed opposition in Syria have long possessed and have repeatedly used chemical weapons. When the UN undertook its first on the ground inquiry in Syria, it admitted in its 82-page December 2013 report (initiated after the August 2013 Ghouta attack), that it considered both sides of the war to be in possession of mass casualty producing chemical weapons. This is important, given that at the time the US position was that only the Syrian government could have possibly launched chemical attacks. According to the UN report:

The United Nations Mission remains deeply concerned that chemical weapons were used in the ongoing conflict between the parties in the Syrian Arabic Republic, which has added yet another dimension to the continued suffering of the Syrian people.

The report stated that chemical weapons were “probably used” at five sites in Syria during the conflict up to that point (2013). Most significant is that among the five sites the UN could not find a single instance where members of the armed rebels opposition were victims, but instead found that at two sites, the victims were Syrian government soldiers, and at a third, the victims were Syrian Army personnel and civilians.

It is a terrible injustice that the American, UK and French regimes should attack Syria as they did on Saturday morning and threaten them with further attacks if there is another incident involving chemical weapons in the future. What would you do if you were a head-chopping, child murdering Islamic crazy? Exactly what you did in Douma on the 7th April.

If Theresa May and her cronies were really serious about ending the suffering of the Syrian people she would stop funding the terrorists and leave the Syrian Army to “mop up” and return the country to peace, reconstruction and, one hopes, healing and prosperity. From interviews he has given, Bashar al Assad will accept the judgment of his people at the ballot box. Until that day comes he will continue to fight for his country.

Much was made this afternoon about the Russians preventing the OPCW from going to the attack site in Douma, almost mocking the reason – “security issues” – as if there couldn’t possibly be any. I would be extremely disappointed if the Syrian Government and Russia are trying to hide something (like their guilt for the Douma attack) from the world. I have them marked down as more trustworthy than the British.

As for the French… I mentioned in an earlier post that Macron had said he had irrefutable proof that Assad was responsible for the chlorine gas event in Douma. Weasel words without that proof, I said. You can read the declassified French Intelligence Report here.

Russia is still guilty for Novichokking the Skripals in Salisbury as far as the UK regime is concerned. BeeZee the cat is out of the bag and running around cyberspace. I’d like to think he (or she) will become a legend – and not meet the fate of the Skripal’s moggie and guinea pigs.
