Who Stands to Gain from the "Novichok" Incidents?
The first couple miraculously recovered from what is supposed to be certain death, given the deadly properties of Novichok, and the second couple are still alive in hospital when they, too, should be dead by now.
How does any of this benefit Russia?
Who else might benefit more?
First it was a former Russian spy - perhaps considered expendable by the UK?
Now it's a couple of people living off the auspices of the welfare system -- also considered expendable by the UK?
Take a good look at these people. Do they look like the sober individuals they are said to be?
Will they, like the Skripals, be spirited away under the protection -- and largesse -- of the British taxpayer? Or are they cold-bloodedly considered expendable? Time will tell.
I'm getting weary of having to stick up for Russia all the time -- when certainly no country is squeaky clean in these days of constant bellicosity -- but there is no proof offered, and what is offered seems to contradict itself, while the rest amounts to blatant innuendo -- so what else can you do but wonder what the heck the UK is trying to pull?
Not to mention that both poisonings (if they were real at all) took place in close proximity to the UK's poison factory at Porton Down! See map.
Are there Brexit-associated plans in the offing that require Brits to live daily in fear for their own lives? Or are there Russia-associated plans for which certain Brits will ultimately be considered expendable -- for the greater "good"?
How does Russia benefit from any of this? It doesn't, of course. It only makes them look like the monsters they will have to appear to be if NATO wants to start up with them -- more than they already have.
