Yes I guess so. And of course some of them might belong to first responders, so there might be some cross contamination.

 

Its increasingly looking as if the Car was the initiation point. Which explains why they were examining the Cemetery, they probably used it to go there.

He already sent the message when he said of Sergei Skripal: "The traitor will kick the bucket." This was the fulfillment of that threat.

Troops are having their weekend messed up.

 

 

About 180 military personnel have been deployed to Salisbury to help in the investigation into the attempted murder of an ex-Russian spy and his daughter.

They will include Royal Marines and military personnel who have specialist training in chemical warfare and decontamination, the BBC understands.

 

Lessons learnt from the radiation poisoning to ensure that the investigation of evidence remains local and not cross contaminated.

Children are a different kind of getting on your nerves mike. :)

 

 

I found this video on youtube, its not very pleasant, and I advise not watching if you like goats. OTOH, it does suppose the idea that this stuff was transmitted via contact through the skin, in that it took so long for it to have effect.

 

 

And some complete maniac used this shit in Britain. Incredible.

Makes sense. If cemetery a regular trip than easy to plan. Could have doused steering wheel. Interior of car would be perfect vapor containment.

The Times newspaper said police were probing whether Skripal's daughter, who arrived in Britain from Moscow last week, may have inadvertently brought in the nerve agent as a gift.

Yeah, im not sure I buy that. They couldnt be sure she wouldnt be searched by airport security. I mean imagine the media headlines from THAT, Nerve Agent being found in a British airport. I think it came in as a binary, which would mean it would have to be assembled AFTER it arrived. But thats just pure speculation on my part.

 

My mother came up with the most interesting idea yet. There were flowers on the grave. Maybe the agent was on the flowers?

That would be right out of James Bond.

Right. Which is why I think they did it that way. I mean think about it, flowers for his own funeral.

 

I mean, look at Litvinenko. They killed him with tea, in a country famed for it. They probably thought it was very funny.

Well the Germans on Tanknet all have a sense of humour, but then they have probably been hanging around depraved Anglo Americans for too long :)

Again, fair points Nils.

 

I was watching BBC Question time last night. I could probably find a link but I dont really want to inflict it on anyone. The Left in it suggested that we have a strong dialogue with whomever was responsible to show the error of their ways, but they didnt believe that military action is ever justified. And the right were for waving how stern their sanctions have been, and how we dont need further military expenditure to demonstrate resolve.

 

About the only one whom seem to get it wasnt a politician at all. It was a street poet whom suggested that whatever we have done hithertoo, it doesnt seem to be working. On target.

 

 

The British middle class absolutely has not changed from the 1930's, with its smug complacency and inability to comprehend dangerous change. Perhaps they will perceive the danger when they are unable to get theri favourite latte one morning because of a cyber attack. :)

 

Here it is:

There was also a couple of priceless examples in the press preview on SkyNews, where one of them said the British Government is probably wishing they never find out who did it, because then they would have to do something about it.

 

Ive often asked myself how Britain remained so clueless and disinterested throughout the 1930's right up to 1939. Its no longer a mystery to me. Im sure King Harold had exactly the same problem.

 

 

I was listening to the BBC last night, supposedly one of his close friends claimed he spent much of his time on his computer playing WW2 tank games. So would appear to be a fan of World of Tanks. :)

Well, FWIW, at least from after watching the show, or well, until well into the whole housing renting topic, I think clueless and disinterested is a little harsh. At any rate, it might be difficult to find a direct meaningful response to it, or at least, others could speculate better than I could. Probably the best response would be an overall general support for British forces and to do either, or a combination of, getting more out of the current defense budget and/or increasing the defense budget. And to maintain the posture of supporting the defense of the eastern European countries.
