    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

    Unfortunately the "poor hard done by Russia/Britain is an American lapdog" nonsense rather easily gives your silly game away.

    If Russia role in nerve attack proved, Britain will respond: PM May

    LONDON (Reuters) - Britain will respond appropriately if evidence shows Moscow sponsored a nerve agent attack on a Russian ex-spy and his daughter in southern England, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday, in the highest-level warning of action to date.


    Former double agent Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, have been in hospital since they were found unconscious on Sunday on a bench outside a shopping center in the quiet cathedral city of Salisbury.


    British media and some politicians have speculated that the Russian state could be behind the attack - suggestions dismissed by Moscow as knee-jerk, anti-Russian propaganda.


    “We will do what is appropriate, we will do what is right, if it is proved to be the case that this is state-sponsored,” May told ITV News, when asked whether Britain could expel the Russian ambassador over the attack.


    “But let’s give the police the time and space to actually conduct their investigation,” she added, in her first comments on the attack since police said on Wednesday a nerve agent was used.


    “Of course if action needs to be taken then the government will do that. We’ll do that properly, at the right time, and on the basis of the best evidence,” she said.


    Scientific tests by government experts have identified the specific substance used, which will help identify the source, but authorities have refused to disclose the details.


    Both victims remain unconscious, in a critical but stable condition, while a British police officer who was also harmed by the substance is now able to talk to people although he remains in a serious condition, interior minister Amber Rudd said.


    “The use of a nerve agent on UK soil is a brazen and reckless act. This was attempted murder in the most cruel and public way,” Rudd told parliament in a statement.


    “But if we are to be rigorous in this investigation, we must avoid speculation and allow the police to carry on their investigation.”


    Despite her call, several lawmakers pointed the finger at Russia during their questions to Rudd, with some calling for investigations to be re-opened into the deaths of Russian exiles in Britain in recent years.


    Rudd rebuffed them, urging people to keep a cool head and saying the focus should remain on the Salisbury incident.


    “We will respond in a robust and appropriate manner once we ascertain who was responsible,” she said. “We are committed to do all we can to bring the perpetrators to justice, whoever they are and wherever they may be.”


    DOUBLE AGENT

    Skripal betrayed dozens of Russian agents to British intelligence before his arrest by Russian authorities in 2004. He was sentenced to 13 years in prison in 2006, and in 2010 was given refuge in Britain after being exchanged for Russian spies.


    The attack on him has been likened in Britain to the assassination of ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko, a critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who died in London in 2006 after drinking green tea laced with radioactive polonium-210.


    A British public inquiry later said Litvinenko’s murder had probably been approved by Putin and carried out by two Russians, Dmitry Kovtun and Andrei Lugovoy, an ex-KGB bodyguard who later became a member of parliament.


    Both men denied any responsibility and Russia has refused to extradite them to stand trial.


    Rudd was pressed during a BBC radio interview earlier on whether Britain had been too soft on Russia following the Litvinenko murder, sending out a message that such acts could be carried out with impunity.


    She denied this and hinted that if Russia turned out to be implicated in the attack on Skripal, action would be taken against it.

    I'd suggest you google "Countries with sanctions against them for breaching international law and standards such as state sponsored hacking and and invading neighbouring countries/propping up genocidal dictators?".

    Coverage of double agent’s alleged poisoning is hysterical propaganda – Lavrov
    Published time: 9 Mar, 2018

    Sergey Lavrov said that Russia is blamed for everything that goes wrong on the planet, and noted that no facts had been presented to suggest any Russian involvement in the poisoning of Sergey Skripal and his daughter.

    We haven’t heard a single fact, we only watch TV coverage, where your colleagues speak fervently with serious faces that if it is Russia. The response will be that Russia will remember forever. It’s not serious, it’s propaganda at its finest and pressing hysteria,” said the foreign minister, who was speaking at a press conference alongside his Ethiopian counterpart, Workneh Gebeyehu.

    However, Lavrov stated that if British authorities were interested in cooperating with Russia in relation to any case, “be it poisoning of British subjects, be it rumors of interfering in US campaign, if help is really needed, we are ready to look at such possibility.

    “However, to conduct such matters, one shouldn’t run to TV screens with baseless accusations, but turn professionally to existing channels, including law enforcement,” he added.

    “I want to remind people that Litvinenko’s death was also attributed to Russia, but hasn’t been investigated, because court proceedings, which were called ‘public,’ were in fact closed. They were carried out in a very strange way, and numerous facts, which emerged throughout investigation, haven’t come into the public domain,” the minister said.

    Hearsay and prejudice do not pass for laws 'arry. Anybody can place a sanction on another country or individual. It's got nothing to do with laws and standards just money.

    The offer is bullshit.

    Let's see them send Andrei Lugovoi to face trial before they start gobbing off about "truth".

    After all, there is nothing to be afraid of a truly fair trial. Something like the trial about Lockerbie...

    According to my records, one defendant was cleared and the other abandoned his appeal and was squirrelled off home in a murky deal with Libya.

    So what is your point?

    This all seems a bit odd.
    Almost 200 members of the armed forces arrived on the streets of Salisbury on Friday to support police investigating the nerve agent attack on a Russian former spy and his daughter, as attention focused on the cemetery where the remains of Sergei Skripal’s wife and and son lie.

    In extraordinary scenes at the city’s London Road cemetery that indicated the investigation was gathering pace, experts in full hazmat suits helped set up tents over the grave of Liudmila Skripal and the memorial of Alexander Skripal, who both died in recent years.


    Across the city, soldiers, bomb disposal specialists, marines and RAF personnel were called in to help secure vehicles and scenes that may have been contaminated and to take the pressure off the police. The new deployment included experts in chemical warfare.


    The Metropolitan police dismissed reports that an exhumation took place on Friday and said there were no plans to carry one out.


    According to Liudmila’s death certificate, she died of cancer in 2012 aged 59, while Alexander died in March last year in St Petersburg, aged 43, in unknown circumstances. He was cremated. Most attention seemed to be being paid to the site of his memorial stone, which is topped by a model of a St Bernard dog.
    Earlier, a convoy of military lorries accompanied by police escorts, incident response units and an ambulance arrived at Salisbury district hospital, where Skripal, 66, and his daughter, Yulia, 33, remain critically ill. They removed a police car that is believed to have been used in the response to the attack.


    One of the officers involved in the early response to the collapse of father and daughter on Sunday afternoon, DS Nick Bailey, remained seriously ill in the same hospital. It has emerged that he visited the Salisbury home of Skripal after the pair were found slumped on a bench in the city centre.


    Investigators want to know whether Bailey visited the scene where the two Russians were found and was poisoned there or by items there, or whether the officer was contaminated on his visit to Skripal’s home.


    Sources say that, while it is not certain, it is believed more likely that Bailey became contaminated on his visit to the home.



    The Met commissioner, Cressida Dick, paid tribute to Bailey, his colleagues and other emergency services. She said: “It’s a very challenging investigation. It’s obviously a very challenging environment to work in. And I guess these very vivid images that people are seeing just reminds people of what our first responders, what our forensics people, what our investigators do and may find themselves doing, and the professionalism and courage that takes.”


    Dick declined to comment when asked about the former Met commissioner Lord Blair backing calls for 14 other deaths to be re-examined after the Salisbury incident.


    In Westminster, the home secretary, Amber Rudd, will chair a rare weekend meeting of the government’s emergency Cobra committee at 2pm on Saturday, to ensure ministers are up to date with the latest developments in Salisbury. Cabinet ministers including the foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, and the defence secretary, Gavin Williamson, will be updated on the police investigation, which government sources described as “moving quite quickly”.


    However, Downing Street stressed that the committee, which coordinates the government’s handling of emergencies, was not the forum for considering potential diplomatic responses. With suspicion falling on the Russian state, Theresa May’s government is understood to have several options for responding to the attack. May is said to be determined to be tougher than the UK was after the poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko in 2006.


    Options include expelling diplomats, revision of sanctions, not officially sending a minister to the football World Cup, designating Russia as a state sponsor of terror – and even, though this is believed to be unlikely, declassifying intelligence implicating Vladimir Putin.


    The thinking in Westminster is understood to be that the UK has few benefits from good relations with Putin and Johnson’s visit to Moscow was not deemed a success.




    During a visit to Salisbury, Rudd described the attack as “outrageous”.


    She said: “I understand people’s curiosity about all those questions, wanting to have answers, and there will be a time to have those answers. But the best way to get to them is to make sure we give the police the space they need to really go through the area carefully, to do their investigation and to make sure that they have all the support that they need in order to get that.”


    Rudd added: “In terms of further options, that will have to wait until we’re absolutely clear what the consequences could be and what the actual source of this nerve agent has been.”


    She said the responders to the incident had told her that something about the scene, which police initially believed to be drugs related, “didn’t feel quite right”.


    “It didn’t stop them for a minute from doing the right thing, making sure that precautions were immediately taken to protect the victims and making sure they secured the site in a professional way,” Rudd said.

    As originally known, Libya had nothing to do with the crash *). Even as found by the Scottish investigators (in contrast to US investigators) and some victims' families.
    So, instead being embarrassed by re-trial, they better released the one...

    *) but Iran as revenge for shooting down their aircraft by US "mistake"...
