People started asking me about this whole, obviously false flag, situation with former GRU spook's and his daughter's poisoning. Ziad asked me next:
Judging by Theresa May's public accusation of Russian responsibility for an act of terrorism using chemical agent and injuring bystanders (all boxes are ticked) I am not hopeful that Putin's speech of March 1st has had the desired effect. If anything, it seems to have convinced them that they have to fight Russia now rather than 10 years from now. Initially I was hopeful that the white house was trying to deescalate matters, but then Tillerson jumped in with both feet beside the Brits.
I will start from afar. Here is Valery Gerasimov's statement today and I quote:
The Russian Defense Ministry is ready to take retaliatory measures against US’ possible strike over Damascus if there is any danger to the Russian military, head of the Russian General Staff added. "At the same time, Russian military advisors, members of the Russian Reconciliation Center for the Conflicting Sides and military policemen are staying in the Syrian Defense Ministry’s facilities in Damascus. In case there is a threat to the lives of our military, the Russian Armed Force will take retaliatory measures both over the missiles and carriers that will use them,"
Do you feel the difference? As I stated somewhere earlier this week, it seems that someone flipped the switch and it is not the United States, let alone some secondary derivative US lap dog power as UK. In this case yesterday's piece of famous Russian-Armenian political analyst, and renown Moscow Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) professor, Andranik Migranyan at Ria.Ru is very symptomatic. Its title speaks for itself: Why Trump's Revolution Is Bound To Fail (in Russian). In it Migranyan states well known to anybody with a half-brain obvious fact--it is over for Trump as independent US President and as an agent of such a needed change for the US. Trump got drowned by both the US political system and corruption and incompetence of American "elites". As I wrote last August when Trump was effectively stripped of his rights to formulate more-or-less sane policy towards Russia by US Congress:
Moscow now has a clear idea that there is nobody to talk to in Washington, let alone in London which is nothing more than a proxy and a lightning rod for hysteria which completely engulfed "exceptional" elites. Russia's presidential elections and upcoming World Cup are the last, in inflamed neocon imagination, "pressure" points of influence on Russia. Well, that and Ukraine. Yes, they still think that, albeit increasingly it looks like acts of utter desperation. Anything goes for them in this case. False flag by poisoning yet another former Russian turncoat? Sure. Chemical weapons false flag in Syria? Absolutely. Do they want a hot war with Russia? Some certainly do. Do they understand what they wish for? No, American elites in general have no grasp of the nature of military power and of its application. But DO they feel that they are going down? Absolutely. All of them. Some, indeed, merely feel that, others already begin to understand. Hence the hysteria.
