Bye, Boris – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. Fox on July 10, 2018

Boris is right about UK becoming a colony. Whether it is the EU that would be in charge is another question.

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson revealed the root of his dispute with Prime Minister Theresa May on the terms of Brexit, which led to his resignation.

Speaking shortly after his resignation from the UK government, former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson slammed the current approach to the Brexit negotiations with the EU, underlining that “we have postponed crucial decisions, including the preparations for no-deal Brexit”. He stressed that the succession process should be more dynamic and nimble.

“We are truly headed for the status of a colony — and many will struggle to see the economic or political advantage of that particular arrangement,” Johnson said in a resignation statement.

The former top British diplomat stressed that in the current situation the “Brexit dream was dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt”, explaining that the ability to diverge from the EU rules has been taken off the table… Read the rest of this entry »

How did you manage to find out so quickly?

It is easy when you “mislead”. Or as some like to call it-LIE.

Of a Type Developed by Liars: The Evolving “Novichok” Nerve Agent Saga | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Posted by M. C. Fox on March 20, 2018

Israel has extensive stocks of chemical weapons but has always refused to declare any of them to the OPCW. Israel is not a state party to the Chemical Weapons Convention nor a member of the OPCW. Israel signed in 1993 but refused to ratify as this would mean inspection and destruction of its chemical weapons. Israel undoubtedly has as much technical capacity as any state to synthesise “Novichoks”.

I have now received confirmation from a well placed FCO source that Porton Down scientists are not able to identify the nerve gas as being of Russian manufacture, and have been resentful of the pressure being placed on them to do so. Porton Down would only sign up to the formulation “of a type developed by Russia” after a rather difficult meeting where this was agreed as a compromise formulation. The Russians were allegedly researching, in the “Novichok” programme a generation of nerve agents which could be produced from commercially available precursors such as insecticides and fertilisers. This substance is a “novichok” in that sense. It is of that type. Just as I am typing on a laptop of a type developed by the United States, though this one was made in China.

To anybody with a Whitehall background this has been obvious for several days. The government has never said the nerve agent was made in Russia, or that it can only be made in Russia. The exact formulation “of a type developed by Russia” was used by Theresa May in parliament, used by the UK at the UN Security Council, used by Boris Johnson on the BBC yesterday and, most tellingly of all, “of a type developed by Russia” is the precise phrase used in the joint communique issued by the UK, USA, France and Germany yesterday: Read the rest of this entry »

Did Putin Order the Salisbury Hit? – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by M. C. Fox on March 20, 2018

“Cui bono?” runs the always relevant Ciceronian question. “Who benefits” from this criminal atrocity?

Certainly, in this case, not Russia, not the Kremlin, not Putin.

Why Russia is the prime suspect is understandable. Novichok was created by Russia’s military decades ago, and Skripal, a former Russian intel officer, betrayed Russian spies to MI6.

But what is missing here is the Kremlin’s motive for the crime.

Skripal was convicted of betraying Russian spies in 2006. He spent four years in prison and was exchanged in 2010 for Russian spies in the U.S. If Putin wanted Skripal dead as an example to all potential traitors, why didn’t he execute him while he was in Kremlin custody?

Why wait until eight years after Skripal had been sent to England? And how would this murder on British soil advance any Russian interest?

Putin is no fool. Read the rest of this entry »
