Public Health England has said that there is little risk to the public at large. Nerve agents degrade on contact with water, and the area of Salisbury where the attack took place has been hosed down. People who visited the same restaurant and pub as the Skripals on the day of the attack have been advised to wash their clothing to eliminate any risk of long term exposure. I believe the Novichok precursors can be replicated and indeed must have been researched across many nations. It would have been irresponsible if this new 4th generation nerve agent from the Soviet era would not have been studied.
I will look for signs this was a false flag attack which I have lived through a number of times before the onset of another major military conflict. As I have predicted, the Western world was edging towards a conflict with Russia and Israel's nemesis Iran. The Syrian failure by the West has brought both conflicts together. I'm changing my optimistic outlook to very negative. North Korea is a distraction, no war on the Korean peninsula.
I was indeed surprised.

It's Russia against the West in Ukraine. Russia against the West in Syria. Russia against the U. There might be issues that could dent Putin's public support -- Russian casualties in Syria or Ukraine, say, or a stagnating economy -- but accusations that the Kremlin tried to kill a man known to have betrayed Russia is not one of them. If anything, it could be a political winner -- the latest evidence that Putin knows no fear, that the long arm of his security services will reach wherever it wants to eliminate its enemies.
Indeed, Russia seemed to collectively mock May's allegations, turning "highly likely" into a meme, including a video on the foreign ministry's official English-language Twitter feed saying it was "highly likely" Russia had caused snowy weather in the U.

The paper which has been foisting conservatism on america for decades while calling it liberalism. There are one or two staff columnists who aren't neocons, but otherwise it's a GOP house rag. Schmidt was the so-called "pay-master" in this country for Bolo Pacha, now under sentence of death for treason in France.
A wealthy wool merchant of New York and Boston was arrested here on Feb. He is to be interned. According to Mr. Becker, this wool merchant was Schmidt's "chief of staff" in matters relating to textiles in this country. It is alleged to have been the intention of the man under arrest and his associated to minimized the effects of a possible British economic embargo against Germany after the war by making it possible for German interests to hoard great stoks of wool which might be sent to Germany when peace was concluded.
They were found incapacitated on a park bench. The responding officer is reported enervated, presumably by contact with their clothing or flesh.

I've missed reports of additional victims despite promotion of " witnesses. And yet they're still alive, without May having to force the Israelis Russians to provide an antidote. What a farce! Interesting overview There are a number of versions with different lethality.
As I understand, once in contact with the substance, your nerve system has been irrevocably damaged. It may take a few years, but a painful death will be your fate. The antidote is known, see my links in article above. It's for "defensive" use in order to exist in an territory filled with adversaries. CBW weapons have always been part of their arsenal for deterrence. Global Warming - distance between America and Europe is steadily increasing. Returning to my opening sentence, if you are relieved to know that the two UK poisoning victims were saved from death-don't be.
I read the story of a Soviet scientist who accidentally inhaled the Novichok nerve agent used in Salisbury, in his research lab. The man at first saw vivid hallucinations and then passed out. For five years following he suffered from severe depression, and then died. Make no mistake, this poison is a death sentence. The victims, even if they survive will face a living hell. That is why it is imperative that Britain exact a severe punishment on Russia for this heinous act. It is why it is absolutely shameful that Donald Trump hasn't denounced this attack and its perpetrator in no uncertain terms.
It is why he is not fit to be president but that's another story. The dismissal of Rex Tillerson is another loss to diplomacy as Trump now is run by a military-intelligence cabinet of advisors and "experts". Who has the goods on the corruption of the Trump and Kushner Empire? Iran be warned, in May Trump will stand down on the multilateral nuclear deal with your nation. Guardian embellishes Mueller's "escalation" with two stories pulled from another Dem minority report, " Mueller subpoenas Trump Organization for documents related to Russia - report " and Trump Organization 'negotiated with sanctioned Russian bank in '.
But doubts about the veracity of that statement began to emerge last August, when the New York Times published emails from a longtime business associate of Trump called Felix Sater, who boasted that he had lined up financing for a Trump Tower in Moscow with VTB Bank, which is under US sanctions. I'm feeling kinda Italian-ish now Schmidt ties Minority report list of business records Mueller's subpoena, "delivered in recent weeks," to a specific real estate venture begun in Mueller have been asked about a possible real estate deal in Moscow.

Trump's political activities. Is this the means to indict Trump personally? I wish. Politico embellishes Schmidt's reporting. But House Intelligence Committee Democrats in a memo issued Tuesday complained that Republicans hadn't given the president's company a close enough examination. The minority lawmakers said a subpoena may be necessary for  telephone records between the Trump Organization and Trump to determine whether there had been discussions between Trump Jr. Democrats complained that Republicans have also ignored their requests for interviews [8.
They've also have previously requested an interview with Eric Trump, a key adviser from the campaign. Ima go out on a limb of federal rules of procedure and evidence: On or about 15 July Mueller will announce more perjury and FARA indictments of TTO "associates", none of which implicate Trumps personally or substantiate campaign financing by Russian nationals.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution. To conduct a legitimate investigation, the Committee would need to interview these individuals, whether or not they have reached plea agreements or are the subject of criminal indictments. For example, Mr. Flynn specifically informed the Committee via his attorney on June 7, that he planned to invoke his Fifth Amendment privilege against self incrimination; the Committee did not demand his appearance, as a result.
In light of Mr.
Flynn's guilty plea, the Committee should revisit his appearance and seek to negotiate his testimony. Given the repeated warnings from the Intelligence Community and others that the Russians are seeking to reprise their operation in this year's midterm elections, the Committee should have held open hearings on election security to clarify the extent of Russia's intrusion into our election systems, highlight vulnerabilities in our elections infrastructure, and identify the technical and other solutions necessary to protect our country.
Based on the timing of these calls, the Committee must determine whether some of these calls may be between Trump Jr. Trump, including calls concerning the Trump Tower meeting. The Committee should therefore request, via compulsory process if necessary, that the Trump Organization disclose to the Committee the phone numbers that have been redacted and produce, if applicable, any other call records between Trump Jr.
Trump during key periods during the election and transition, and since the inauguration. Subpoena The grand jury's power, although expansive, is limited by its function toward possible return of an indictment. Costello v. United States, U. Accordingly, the grand jury cannot be used solely to obtain additional evidence against a defendant who has already been indicted.
Nor can the grand jury be used solely for pre-trial discovery or trial preparation. After indictment, the grand jury may be used if its investigation is related to a superseding indictment of additional defendants or additional crimes by an indicted defendant. Grand jury subpoenas may be served at any place within the United States. Under Rule 17 g of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, a failure by a person without adequate excuse to obey a subpoena served upon him or her may be deemed a contempt of the court. Subparagraph B shall not apply to those records which have been surrendered pursuant to grand jury or court proceedings.
Schiff's posse is playing a dangerous game. Railroading Trump will not end well for anyone. The name "Novichok" is used in a publication of a former Soviet scientist who reported investigating a new class of nerve agents suitable for use as binary chemical weapons. The SAB states that it has insufficient information to comment on the existence or properties of "Novichoks". Has anything changed in the last 5 years? Is there any evidence of their existence that does not derive from Mirzayanov? In short, do they even exist?

Evidence, not belief is needed. If they cannot be replicated, it would not be irresponsible to not study them. I do interpret this text differently and place it in the context of a choice of components not prohibited under the CBW treaties. It is important to adapt the verification system quickly to changes in science and technology happening in industry and elsewhere. Examples: new chemical technologies and the need to look more closely at certain facilities producing unscheduled discrete organic chemicals DOC ; inclusion of data on non-scheduled risk chemicals into OPCW analytical database.
Agents of the Novichok-category are not in the public domain and also are not controlled through the Schedules. The OPCW should be aware of them and be capable of finding them in samples. Only two such biochemical agents--the toxins ricin and saxitoxin--are listed on Schedule 1. Remember the use of anesthetic fentanyl by the Russian security police during the siege of Chechen terrorists holding hostages in a Moscow theater in October One reason for not adding the novichoks and their precursors to the schedules is that the Russian government has refused to acknowledge their development.
In addition, several Western countries worry that listing these compounds would disclose their molecular structure and thereby facilitate their acquisition by state proliferators and terrorist groups.
Technological Advances Present Challenge to CWC Verification Technological developments have also made it easier to conceal the manufacture of novel chemical warfare agents in the guise of legitimate industrial production. For example, some of the novichok nerve agents lack the carbon-phosphorus bond that is the hallmark of classical nerve agents such as sarin and soman, making the newer agents more difficult to identify. Several chemical warfare agents also come in binary formulations, in which two final precursor chemicals are mixed together inside a munition en route to the target and react to produce the lethal agent, which is then dispersed on impact.
Because the binary components are relatively nontoxic, they can be manufactured in existing chemical plants for ostensibly legitimate purposes. Thus for me these "agricultural" agents are real and the binary compound are known across the globe in state sponsored research labs. The staging was quite sloppy as many locations have been exposed.

My trust in the IC is quite low due the implementation of false flag attacks to start a war or force a political goal. It describes the current level of chemical weapons and the risk of using them. Furthermore, some traditional technology for the development of chemical weapons, such as increasing toxicity, methods of overcoming chemical protection, research on natural toxins or the introduction of binary technology, has been described.
In accordance with many parameters, chemical weapons based on traditional technologies have achieved the limit of their development. There is, however, a big potential of their further development based on the most recent knowledge of modern scientific and technical disciplines, particularly at the boundary of chemistry and biology. The risk is even higher due to the fact that already, today, there is a general acceptance of the development of non-lethal chemical weapons at a technologically higher level.
In the future, the chemical arsenal will be based on the accumulation of important information from the fields of chemical, biological and toxin weapons. Data banks obtained in this way will be hardly accessible and the risk of their materialization will persist. In the arsenal of armies, as well as of police and security services, new highly effective irritants arose, which were also employed in military conflicts. The best known example is the mass use of the CS agent in the Vietnam War. American forces concurrently used herbicides on a large scale particularly based on 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T , the primary purpose of this being the vertical and horizontal control of the vegetation on the battlefield.
The mass application of herbicides exerted negative effects on the environment, agriculture and health conditions of the local population [10,11]. In the peak period of the Cold War, the United States developed chemical weapons of the third generation, the principle of which was binary ammunition based on nerve agents sarin, VX, IVA - intermediate volatility agents.
In the period of the Cold War, chemical weapons were also distributed into countries of the so-called Third World, which considered this technology to be a cheaper alternative to nuclear weapons. The largest advance in this direction was achieved by Iraq, where a chemical arsenal, including more than 3, tons of CWA mustard, tabun, sarin , was accumulated with the help of foreign companies. A major proportion of these stocks were used in the war against Iran and against the local population of Kurds.

UK defence secretary tells Russia 'go away and shut up' UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson urged Russia to "go away" and "shut up" as he unveiled plans for a new chemical weapons "defence centre". Scientists at the Wiltshire lab helped identify the nerve agent used to attack ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal.
Russia said his comments demonstrated his "intellectual impotence". In a speech on Thursday, Mr Williamson said the "shocking and reckless" attack on Mr Skripal and his daughter illustrated the increasing dangers the UK faced from chemical weapons. Mr Williamson said there was "no doubt the attack came from Russia". Why does the UK need a new facility? Williamson said that while the UK is well-prepared for chemical, biological and radiological attacks, the evolving nature of threats and the increasing capabilities of potentially hostile countries mean that more research is needed.
He explained: "We know the chemical threat doesn't just come from Russia but from others. Therefore, by investing in a new chemical weapons defence facility, the UK will aim to retain its competitive advantage in the field of defence. In addition to the new centre, the defence secretary also announced that thousands of British troops will be vaccinated against anthrax as a precautionary measure.
