The Novichok was found on the front door of the skripal's house.
There are photos of countless police officers guarding the house and standing right by their front door yet not a single one of them has fallen ill.
When litvinenko was poisoned there were countless images of him in his hospital bed, yet there are none of the skripals.
They supposedly fed ducks and birds after being contaminated but there have been no poisoned ducks. Not a single quacker.
There has been no visit from Theresa May or Amber Rudd to thank the staff at the hospital.
There has been no police appeal for people who know the skripals to come forward.
The police searched the skripals house an hour after they had collapsed and no officers have been contaminated in this way.
Neither has their post man.
Why were the army running a chemical warfare exercise days before the skripals collapsed?
|>>|| No. 60380
That copper responded to the scene where they collapsed. None of the rozzers who stood for several hours keeping watch right next the actual source of the nerve agent attack have been taken ill.
|>>|| No. 60381
So what's the conclusion to draw here? The Skripals were infected with special MoD virus that only effects the first police officer to go near them, but not anyone in the restaurant, pub, park, beforehand?
How much of the 'source' was left? If it had mostly been transferred to the occupants then would we not expect such a result?
Help me out here, I'm not an expert on chemical warfare.
|>>|| No. 60383
That's true, it is a binary agent, but wasn't it active as Novichok at the house?
Further, how long does this stuff last, how much contact do you need? I get that it's fucking nasty, but if most of it's been transferred by the Skirpals touching it on the door handle etc, is that not enough to remove enough of it from the scene that it's no longer an effective dose for officers inside or near the house?
I'm all for a good conspiracy, but OP, you need to explain the science a bit more.
|>>|| No. 60384
>NONE OF THE ROZZERS WHO STOOD FOR SEVERAL HOURS KEEPING WATCH RIGHT NEXT THE ACTUAL SOURCE OF THE NERVE AGENT ATTACK HAVE BEEN TAKEN ILL.
I'm not saying whether I believe in a conspiracy or not, (and I know this is /IQ/), but the fact that no one else has been taken ill is absolutely meaningless.
It's not airborne. Standing around and picking your nose outside that front door carries absolutely no risk at all.
Also remember something regarding the nature of conspiracies, no one can plan for every single eventuality, there are so random chances or random choices by people which could make a plan go tits up. When you try and build a conspiracy theory, you fall into the trap of assuming that everything that happened was intentional.
>HELP ME OUT HERE, I'M NOT AN EXPERT ON CHEMICAL WARFARE.
Neither am I, but my assumption would be that the officer got a bit too intimate with an attempt at CPR which exposed him to the nerve agent in a way that no other person the Skirpals met that day was.

>its deployment was 'probably only within the capability of a state actor', but that establishing its origins required 'other inputs'.
>What you’ve seen today is one piece of the jigsaw from Porton Down – world class scientists, but what they are not able to do is interpret and understand the human activity that accompanied what led up to the awful events here in Salisbury.
Chemical analysis is not our only source of evidence. If SIS have got a mole in the FSB or if GCHQ are eavesdropping classified Russian communications, they're hardly going to splash it across the tabloids. It's conceivable that some other state actor was responsible for this crime, but Russia are the only country who are known to have the means, motive and opportunity.

You want to send a message to would-be defectors, and deal with present ones as terminally as possible. A live spy can remain a useful tool.

So does nobody else think it's a bit odd that both poisonings happened within spitting distance of Porton down? I mean, of all places to have a deadly experimental nerve agent incident.
|>>|| No. 60948
Agreed, though do we think it's a shady, deliberate test, or some sort of hilarious blunder?
|>>|| No. 60949
It would seem far too stupidly local for any sort of MK-Ultra style experiment. I suppose if someone on site turned serial killer it would make sense, but the first 2 victims were so profoundly specific that they would have had to do a lot of research to target them and the coincidence is too incredible to not be deliberate for me.
What I presume this is, is Russian damage control to make it look like it wasn't them by targeting local randoms to make it look like one of the above scenarios and throw doubt on the idea that it was them.
|>>|| No. 60950
That sounds like the worst damage control plan ever, which is why no reasonable person would suspect it, which in turn is probably why they did it.
|>>|| No. 60951
The leading theory at the moment is that the Skripal assassin carelessly discarded some leftover novichok. Nerve agents are relatively stable, so a half-empty phial could still be lethal after several months.
|>>|| No. 60952
Which in turn is why it's so transparently obvious.
I heard the Russian state bloke on the radio earlier and has statement was basically the equivalent of a mischievous shrug, "Oh myyyy, however could that have happened, I surely have no ideeeeaaa..."
But in all seriousness I don't think it was the Russians. It's too much of a sloppy obvious job. And frankly, I'd expect spy stuff like that to be kept hush hush, whether it's us or them doing it- the fact it's in the mainstream and the pleb politician goons are allowed to talk about it makes me think something else is afoot.
|>>|| No. 60954
You couldn't have hidden the original case even if it was spy stuff, unless the government was willing to let the police and an entire community potentially spread the agent further.

BLATANT YMCA PSY-OP LADS. NOW THAT WE'VE DONE ALRIGHT AT THE WORLD CUP, AND FANS THAT HAVE GONE HAVE FOUND RUSSIANS TO BE FRIENDLY, THEY ARE WORRIED THAT PEOPLE WILL FORGET ABOUT THE RUSSIA IS EVIL NARRATIVE SO GOT TO HAVE A 2ND ROUND OF THIS NAUGHTY NERVE CANDY.
|>>|| No. 60963
You could though, quite easily- just do it in another way than using a Soviet nerve agent and then leaving the bodies to be found. Simply disappear them like the old days.
|>>|| No. 60968
I don't understand how that makes sense in context to the post you're replying to.
If you wanted to keep it under wraps, you wouldn't have used a nerve agent, as that's almost impossible to keep under wraps.
By 'original case' in that post I mean 'novichok'. Perhaps you thought I meant killing the Skripals? Obviously you could have done that a different way if you didn't want it making the news. I think we are in agreement.

>Novichok that poisoned a couple in Wiltshire came from a small bottle found in the home of one of the victims, police say.
>A bottle was found in a search at Charlie Rowley's Amesbury house and was tested by scientists at Porton Down, the Metropolitan Police said.
Bloody skagheads. They find a vial of nerve agent so they take it home with them to try and get off their tits with it.
|>>|| No. 61039
Yeah because that answers so many questions. What the fuck were they doing with a whole fucking bottle of novichok and wouldn't a whole bottle of the stuff be enough to wipe out everyone within a couple dozen miles?
If anything, this all makes even less sense than before. Which is probably what they (whoever 'they' are) want. Sigh.
|>>|| No. 61040
If you were covertly smuggling nerve toxins (or constituents thereof), I doubt you would carry it in a bottle labelled "DANGER NOVICHOK".
More likely you would use something innocent in appearance, and assuming the quantities involved, that would mean something like a perfume bottle. It is still a bit odd that it ended up in their hands though, and wasn't disposed of a bit more carefully.

>Mr Rowley told ITN News that he so ill he didn't even know who Ms Strugess was when he came round after being exposed to the deadly Russian nerve agent.
>He revealed how he found the perfume and gave it to Ms Strugess on the morning that she collapsed, saying 'I had showed Dawn what I’d found. It might’ve been hanging around the flat for a couple of days. 'I find things and it looked expensive. It looked expensive. Unfortunately it turned out to be…to be a bad find.'
>It comes after MailOnline revealed the first images of Mr Rowley since the attack. Grinning and looking healthy despite a slight limp he was captured on CCTV at a shop in central Salisbury buying lager yesterday afternoon.
I founds it, precious.
|>>|| No. 61437
Russia has developed an astonishing new technology enabling its secret agents to occupy precisely the same space at precisely the same time.
These CCTV images released by Scotland yard today allegedly show Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov both occupying exactly the same space at Gatwick airport at precisely the same second. 16.22.43 on 2 March 2018. Note neither photo shows the other following less than a second behind.
There is no physically possible explanation for this. You can see ten yards behind each of them, and neither has anybody behind for at least ten yards. Yet they were both photographed in the same spot at the same second.
The only possible explanations are:
1) One of the two is travelling faster than Usain Bolt can sprint
2) Scotland Yard has issued doctored CCTV images/timeline.
I am going with the Met issuing doctored images.
|>>|| No. 61438
It's pointless for the likes of us to hypothesise about things like this.
Yes it's obvious the met have doctored the image, the images he's published are genuine, the ones on the mets own site are the same.
But... we haven't got a single fucking clue why they've been doctored. Yes it is possible that they've entirely fabricated a case against these two men and Russia, but it's just as likely that these images have passed through the hands of all the intelligence agencies and they've very very carefully selected and modified what gets released publicly, in order to control what Russia knows about their investigation.
|>>|| No. 61439
The time code seems like such an obvious thing I feel like there is another explanation as to where that code came from maybe the time is based off of the current time when the images were captured and has no relation to the cctv footage it self.
|>>|| No. 61442
What if they're both at different gates/jetways and just happened to have been under their respective cameras at the exact same time? If they weren't sat together it would be possible, if a little unlikely.
I can't think of any reason for such a basic mistake with timecodes to have been made, otherwise. I know our government is a bit incompetent, but our intelligence services aren't, and if they're planning to fabricate a conspiracy against another state, you'd think they'd have spotted this mistake before publishing it.
|>>|| No. 61444
The ones on the right are being careful to not get exposed to a neurotoxin, while the ones on the left are being careful not to get exposed as carrying a neurotoxin.
Where do I claim my prize?
|>>|| No. 61447
The other question to ask is, why have they even bothered to publicise this at all, including this detailed time-line they've pieced together? It's 100% politics and propaganda.
Whether the Russians did this or not, they're going to be going through this press release at microscopic detail.
I'm very much inclined to believe that our intelligence services had a damn good reason for inserting this apparent cock-up.
Or MI5.3 are just baiting the conspiracy theorists for shits and giggles.
There's another difference, the ones on the left know exactly where the neurotoxin is, the ones on the right don't.
|>>|| No. 61448
Also, the ones on the left have a sealed container of neurotoxin, the ones on the right have to find it smeared on doorknobs and that.

>Or MI5.3 are just baiting the conspiracy theorists for shits and giggles
Or perhaps they're baiting conspiracy theorists to create an appropriate smokescreen of white noise in the informational noosphere.

Because conspiracy theorists have such broad audiences compared to the rest of the media.

Thank fuck they included Worcester on that map. I'd have no idea what it was trying to depict otherwise.
|>>|| No. 61452
Think about it. If you were a tourist visiting Worcester you'd want to know how close you were to the nerve agent poisoning. Without such information the Worcester sauce industry would collapse overnight, as people stay well away from it for fear it has been contaminated with Novichok. These are people's livelihoods we're talking about here.
|>>|| No. 61454
They actually do though mate. I'm not just talking about Alex Jones and David Icke, it's a broad spectrum that includes your mate Dave who keeps posting anti-vax site on Facebook. It has enough reach without the traditional media and creates enough confusion to obfuscate the truth.
I'm telling you lads. Conspiracy theories themselves are the real conspiracy. They want you rolling your eyes at nonsense like chemtrails and 9/11 being an inside job, in order to discredit the entire idea of government conspiracies and people who believe in them. Refuge in audacity.

>I'm telling you lads. Conspiracy theories themselves are the real conspiracy. They want you rolling your eyes at nonsense like chemtrails and 9/11 being an inside job, in order to discredit the entire idea of government conspiracies and people who believe in them.
I don't see how they could possibly have any control over the people who believe these things, if everybody they have ever met isn't enough to convince them that the world isn't flat, I don't see how the government, could be secretly able to influence them the other way through the one guy who says the oppersite on youtube, much more logical to conclude that they are contrarian, or doubling down over ego defence.
How elaborate exactly do you believe real conspiracies to be? And how competent would the perpetrators need to be. I believe low level white lie by omission happens all the time, but highly organised operations that is more questionable, unless everyone involved believes the ends justify the means it is going to leak like a sieve.
|>>|| No. 61456
Piece of piss, you just discredit anyone who does leak it by giving them a spread in the tabloids and a netflix documentary. Then it seamlessly slides in alongside all the other wackos and people go on believing it's nonsense.
There are people out there who believe Edward Snowden was a Soviet sleeper agent and nothing he said was true. If that doesn't show these tactics to be effective I don't know what does. We have no way of ever knowing which side is true and which side is disinfo.
|>>|| No. 61457
The reality is mate that the government does whatever the fuck it wants, and the shadiest parts are good enough that the real 'conspiracies' never actually become conspiracies because either they don't leak, everyone involved is 'terminated', or they straight up just fucking tell us about the horrific stuff they've done.
That latter part is what I don't really get, I'm not sure why people get hung up on conspiracy theories when we know for sure stuff like MKULTRA actually happened.
Of course the government is shady, and guess what, you're powerless to stop it, so accusing them of clever misdirection is stupid and pointless - everything they want to hide is fully hidden, and even when it's not (see: russia) they carry on doing it anyway.
I suggest the time spent chasing down clues that our government is awful is better allocated elsewhere, as this is something we already know.

Several senior Russian officials are identifiable as ex-KGB, because they don't swing their right arm when they walk - they used to be trained to keep their hand close to their pistol holster at all times.
US Secret Service agents are often easy to spot, because they never button their jackets to provide easier access to their holster. In a crowded area, they hold their hands at chest height or hold on to their lapels to ensure that their arms cannot be pinned at their side in a crush.

This picture isn't really the important part, and it should be noted that the chap who did the research about this lad being an agent is not at all claiming that this is a picture of him, presumably because he knows it's very easy to deny that sort of likeness.
