There’s no likely positive resolution to dangerously escalating US/UK-led Russia bashing – eerily similar to the run-up to earlier US-led NATO imperial wars.
Was Trump’s hardened war cabinet assembled to goad Russia into confrontation? Since the 1917 Russian revolution, US and UK imperialists sought regime change – from extremists under Woodrow Wilson in America and their counterparts under Britain’s Lloyd George to the present.
The Skripal affair is the latest Russia bashing incident – clearly a false flag the Kremlin had nothing to do with, but it doesn’t matter.
Despite no evidence suggesting Russian involvement, the official hostile narrative continues – supported by Western media.
During an OPCW Executive Council Wednesday special session, Moscow’s proposed joint investigation was rejected by Washington and Britain.
A UK statement turned truth on its head saying the following:
“Russia’s proposal for a joint, UK/Russian investigation into the Salisbury incident is perverse. It is a diversionary tactic, and yet more disinformation designed to evade the questions the Russian authorities must answer.”
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova blasted Britain saying
“(t)hey will keep lying, prevaricating, shifting responsibility on each other. Why? Because this is not the first time they are doing this.”
Russia OPCW envoy Alexander Shulgin said
“(w)e insist…that the investigation should be truly transparent, comprehensive and unbiased and necessarily involve Russian experts.”
Questions on the Skripal incident posed to the OPCW have not been answered, Shulgin saying “(t)his is absolutely unacceptable.”
Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov called what’s going on “abominable from the very beginning…evidence (showing) insane accusations by Britain…are based on nothing.”
