Uh huh... so Russia would use a chemical which not only failed to kill the targets but could be easily traced back to them. Who actually would believe that?


I'd guess the same people that believe a Russian cyber operation would only take place during Moscow business hours from a Russian IP address and leave a trail back to a known Russian hacking group.

Although possible, I am not quite ready to assume that level of ignorance from Russian field agents.

Generally speaking, if there is a neat and tidy trail of bread crumbs, they were left there on purpose.

I agree. Something definitely doesn't add up here.


In the case of Litvinenko the radiation was all over the place, including being traced to where it was mixed. It also took two attempts to poison him. In this case we don't know the circumstances of the contamination, or indeed whether there was just one attempt, or more than one.

With limited information available nothing adds up at the moment.

You would think that but justice was never served for Litvinenko.

The reason it never adds up is because western media skews the story to fit the profit margin.

What sounds better?

Former FSB agent murdered by former FSB agent.

Former FSB agent murdered by Russia.

One of these has evidence that points to it being the most likely scenario (and the one actually pursued on paper by the foreign governments involved), and one of these sells papers, public perceptions be damned.

Soooo, that could mean anything, as I am sure some black marketers were on site ASAP as well. Perhaps before the US got there. Makes me wonder about those suitcase nukes.

I'm also of the opinion that the "trail of breadcrumbs" is too obvious. But the question is, who left it and why?

Either someone trying to implicate Moscow, or Moscow saying "we didn't do this wink wink, but don't be a traitor, you're not safe" (as broadcast pretty blatantly on state TV).

It's called speculation and plausibility. If the Russians had not murdered Litvinenko the media would have nbeen less likely to put the Russians in the equation. However, it looks like speculation that Russia was involved was not too far from the mark, eh?

If I was a betting man? Implicate Moscow.

As for Moscow sending messages...this would be the diminishing the fear compared to the threats they are more then capable of acting on. Aka: the pleasant way compared to the SVR way.

Call me skeptical but is not just a bit stupid to use such a high risk means of assassination, I said the same thing in yesterdays thread that it just seems a bit off.

What was it, find the hardest and most risky way to off someone in the office power point production... The guy is still alive for Buddhas sake. Would death by a faulty boiler or car crash not have been easier?..

With all the Russian MSM reports be it Syria, Trump etc etc I wonder what it could all mean with a conspiracy hat on??, ...

Russia: Message sent, message received. The Prime minister: The British people will not import Russian vodka for 90 full day. Take that you red menace.

I don't really buy this. Why do something so elaborate as using a Russian brand nerve agent that our government would obviously test and know the source of? Why do it in such a sloppy manner and in public? Would have been easier to follow him home and put a bullet in the back of his head with a silencer. Reeks of false flag/secret service provocation.


Well why did they go to all the trouble with killing Aleksandr Litvinenko with radiation poisoning (polonium-210 in his tea)?
You talk of a "sloppy manner" but the two Russian suspects were able to be traced via that radiation trail. That trail included the hotels that they stayed in and the flights that they took from and to Moscow.

See link for Polonium trails

How hard is it to make or buy Russian /Soviet weapons?

We are probably attacking ourselves with Russian junk we can easily replicate.

Really who knows who it was. Let jump on the blame Russian narrative though.



Its also highly likely that Theresa May used the official secrets act to cover up for pedophila in the British Government. Im sure thats something that is far more relevant to the British people

and why are they not allies because you have been told they are not. Who saved the UK in the second world war. It was not the USA. It was the Russians. Stop buying the bull#

Highly likely eh.

So a country that participated in the cold war for decades has become a bumbling boris and natasha in the 21st century.

I am having a hard time believing all the snip surrounding Russia for the last year too many Bullwinkle and Rockey's running around.
