Britain's Undeclared War on Russia
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
The March 4 Skripal incident was likely US/UK-staged.
It's part of ongoing Russophobic disinformation - demonizing a country (and Vladimir Putin personally for) opposing Washington's imperial agenda, defeating its regime change aim in Syria, foiling its plan to redraw the Middle East map, its scheme for dominating the region together with Israel - Britain partnering with both countries.
Russia had nothing to do with whatever harmed the Skripals. Nor was it involved in the July 4 Amesbury incident, affecting Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess.
He's critically ill. She died days later - neither they or the Skripals harmed by a novichok nerve agent, able to kill in minutes with no known antidote.
The official narrative in both cases was and continues to be a Big Lie - Russia falsely blamed for what it had nothing to do with in March or July.
Both incidents were likely UK-staged, CIA dirty hands likely complicit, falsely blaming Russia to be expected - the second time days ahead of Putin/Trump summit talks.
Britain's Russophobic war secretary Gavin Williamson resembles Nikki Haley - a loose cannon earlier saying the Kremlin "could cause 'thousands and thousands and thousands' of deaths in Britain with an attack that would cripple the UK's infrastructure and energy supply, (causing) panic (and) chaos," adding:
"They are looking at these things because they are saying these are the ways that we can hurt Britain…This is the real threat that I believe the country is facing" from Russia.
Surprising no one, he blamed the Kremlin for the July 4 incident, saying "(t)he simple reality is that Russia has committed an attack on British soil which has seen the death of a British citizen" - a bald-faced lie.
Last week, UK home secretary Sajid Javid said "further action" would be forthcoming if Russia's involvement in the July 4 incident is confirmed.
Russia categorically rejected falsified accusations and insinuations. On Monday, its Foreign Ministry said "(c)laims by Gavin Williamson that Russia has something to do with Dawn Sturgess's death is 'a good old mantra' on the topic of 'this was done by the Russians.' Maybe you should do something new, for example, launch a proper and thorough investigation of what happened."
Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov called associating Russia with the Amesbury incident "absurd." Russia has no knowledge of or involvement in what happened - nor the March Salisbury one.
Both incidents were classic false flags, Russia falsely blamed for what it had nothing to do with - nor any possible motive.
