UK still trying to manage perception of nerve agent incident.
"Let's call the whole thing off?" [YouTube]
The following headline is from a Times article but if you want more than just a teaser you have to put in another quarter, like a common peep show. (The main talking points are reproduced here.)
Salisbury poison ‘made at Russia’s Porton Down’
Shikhany lab complex: cafés, schools – and a nerve agent lab
So, the UK is still doing the old Switcheroo?
Note the time frame of the admitted-to testing: "during the past decade". Trust me, if it were in recent months the Times would have screamed it in the headlines.
Look, the Russians have already been expelled; why keep trying to scrub the egg off certain faces? Or is this really a case of we (the UK) scratch your (the USA) back ... etcetera?
It's certainly clear that the US needs to get something serious going with Russia. Could it be because the US nuclear arsenal needs an overhaul and Trump has to justify the expenditure?
Americans won't go for it unless the bejeebers is (are?) scared out of them, anymore than they would have gone for the wars on Afghanistan/Iraq etc., if the Islamic menace hadn't been drilled into their psyches. (That and no jobs available except in police and military - which, by the way, is where Canada's young graduates may also be headed).
Well, lookee here, eh?: Russia has thought of that as well.
From Mike Pence [try not to gag]:
Coincidence? As Ian Richardson's cunning character, Prime Minister Francis Urquhart, said in To Play the King - "You might think that ...I could not possibly comment."
Sorry, but it's not at all unthinkable that the source of the poison was Portadown, and it's not yet been proven otherwise. Nor is there anything to indicate that it didn't originate in the US.
America has a less-than immaculate history with regard to its research labs having been implicated in poison attacks that were blamed on other entities - such as the bad, bad Muslims. So why should we assume that Porton Down is squeaky clean in that regard?
Either way, PM May and Boris have cancelled out their own arguments, so it's time to let things rest. Otherwise, all we can assume is what we've already surmised, that the news media are merely outlets for the manipulation of public perception.
