Alerted by The Last American Vagabond.
I watched some of the United Nations Security Council Meeting last night. I was late arriving at the live stream, so didn’t see the Russian opening statement. I was, though, in good time to hang my head in shame when the ambassador for the UK spoke. The French representative impressed me, however, even though he was in clear support of the pusillanimous Brits. Here is some of what he said:-
President, the prohibition on the use of chemical weapons is the very bedrock of the non-proliferation regime upon which our collective security system is founded. In that understanding, the rampant and unrestrained re-emergence in the Middle East, Asia and now in Europe of these vile weapons cannot be tolerated. We established a taboo on the rise of chemical weapons together and that taboo, or that ban has been broken, including in Salisbury. This speaks as to why it is urgent that we re-affirm and build upon the absolute prohibition on the use of chemical weapons. The trivialization of the use of chemical weapons would mark the victory of barbarity over civilization and would mark a terrible setback for international order. That is why we cannot sit idly by when they are used and all the more so when, and let us not deceive ourselves, a trivialisation of chemical weapons will only open the door for the spectre of chemical terrorism which we all fear so rightly, as we would all pay the price for said chemical terrorism. This is why France will never allow those who develop or use toxic agents to enjoy impunity. We reiterate our full support for the institutions and framework, in particular, the OPCW. France will remain fully committed to supporting the OPCW’s activities with all the means at our disposal.
Well said, mon brave. I hope France will honour your sentiments.

A day after Mr. Aitkenhead, Chief Executive at Porton Down, said they couldn’t say where the nerve agent had been manufactured, the BBC morning news carried the claim that the UK Government could name the damned spot in Russia. Hmm. But what if the picture above is an accurate signpost to “the truth”. What if the UK poodle, egged on by its master, tried to whack the Skripals with a chemical weapon and there’s the proof? What will the French, and the rest of the civilized world, do then?
Five years ago The Telegraph carried a report about British interests in exporting ingredients for chemical weapons to, of all places, Syria.
More recently –
The BBC has been preparing UK citizens for a while – President Assad, with Russian assistance, is going to launch a chemical attack on his own people soon.
American forces are, it seems, going to stay illegally in Syria for a while longer, presumably so that they can support their terrorist proxy fighters to carry out the heinous ‘false flag’ event. One can only hope that the Salisbury fiasco will so totally unravel that the planned Syria attack will be shelved – because no human being of sound mind will “buy it”.
I think it is highly likely that MI5/MI6 tried to bump off the Skripals, perhaps using assassins from another EU country. The UK Government, via its public propaganda machine (the BBC), is so obviously culpable of spreading disinformation. The Tories have a motive – to cry “insecurity” and use fear to postpone Brexit or ditch it altogether. Russia couldn’t benefit in any way from the crime.
There is no other plausible explanation – the UK did it. Shame on the British ruling class.
Well, it would be if it were not for those awful Russians, with their aggressive actions, disregard for international law and disrespect for our western values. Such as the recognition of innocence until guilt is proven.
Oh, my bad. I think I have just described two countries that have a special relationship.
The head of the United Kingdom regime has had nothing sensible to say for months but I listened to a rant this morning by a citizen of the more dangerous partner in the aforementioned relationship. I recommend it to you. Take it away, Lionel.
CNN’s program Sixty Minutes served up porn actress Stormy Daniels recently. I’m not sure what the tv company was hoping to achieve, other than higher than normal ratings. Russian television also offers Sixty Minutes to its people, and they have just been treated to an explanation of the Skripal poisoning incident. Maria Vladimirovna Zakharova, from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, demonstrates that there is little disagreement between Russia and the Lionel Nation.
One can only hope that the “leaders” of the USA and the UK find a cure for their Russophobia soon. We don’t want them, in their fevered state, to do something stupid – like invade Syria or Iran. Do we?
