A Very British Poisoning Blamed on Russia and the Megyn Kelly 'Confronting Putin' Interview

A week ago exchanged British agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia visiting from Moscow were found slumped over on a park bench, allegedly poisoned with a nerve agent of some sort. The British government claims it is looking into over potential 200 witnesses and 240 pieces of evidence tied to the incident in Salisbury, a city where the retired Skripal lived near his MI6 recruiter and likely handler, Pablo Miller. 

According to the anti-Kremlin Russian publication Meduza, Miller worked with dirty dossier author and fellow ex-MI6 spook Christopher Steele for Orbis Business Intelligence. Thus the legacy media is hinting at a link between the poisoning and the Steele Dossier which was used to insert Clinton campaign funded partisan oppo research into the Obama intelligence community. This 'linkage' is being made just days after Kremlin connected oligarch Oleg Deripaska, placing an op-ed in the Trump friendly Daily Caller, suggested that none other than the arch globalist George Soros had partially funded the dossier through his cat's paws in the Clinton crime family.

RussiaGate Twitter is convinced that Skripal, who spent years in Russian prisons for treason before a spy swap in 2010, was suddenly worth the risk to assassinate on British soil because he may have been Steele's source for Kremlin kompromat on Trump. Regardless of the truth, the British tabloid The Sun claims Monday morning that Theresa May's government is preparing to formally blame Russia for the poisoning.

Syraq SITREP 37: SU57s Flying in Syrian Skies, More Details on U.S. Attack on Russian Mercs, Syria/Turkey Confrontation in Afrin

On Friday, February 23 Russia marked its Defender of the Fatherland (День защитника Отечества) federal holiday. In Syria, Moscow added more aerial firepower to its deployed contingent, including four Su-35 air superiority fighters, four Su-25 close air support jets and one A-50U radar surveillance aircraft. Other deployments that may be unseen could include stepped up alerts for cruise missile firing Russian bombers based out of Saratov or Dagestan regions, Kalibr cruise missiles on subs and ships in the Caspian, Black and Mediterranean Seas, as well as more highly mobile Pantsir air defense systems of the type that could deter further American strikes on combined Syrian-Russian ground forces.

Whether in response to the U.S. bombing of Russian private military contractors/non-servicemen volunteers of February 7-8 or as a signal of resolve to Turkey, which has threatened to expand its military campaign against sovereign Syrian territory in Kurdish-held Afrin, the Russians are making moves. The question now is how Ankara, Tel Aviv and Washington will respond, as the Syrian War lurches toward a very messy end game. One with U.S. forces nominally occupying over 20% of Syrian territory east of the Euphrates, bloody urban combat in the ruins of Ghouta, jihadists like rats fighting each other for scraps of Idlib, and Syrian Army and Shi'a militia forces seeking to stop the Turkish onslaught against the Kurds in the north.

On Friday, President Donald Trump pandered to the neocons in his Administration, saying during a press conference with the Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull "what Russia and what Iran and what Syria have done recently is a humanitarian disgrace". Trump stopped short of indicating whether the U.S. would take military action against Assad's forces for 'humanitarian' reasons as it did in April on his orders, in response to an alleged Syrian chemical attack on the Al-Qaeda dominated town of Khan Sheikhoun. In the same remarks, Trump also appealed to his America First base, claiming the U.S. has no territorial ambitions in Syria and plans to 'go home' after ISIS remnants get mopped up. The fact that many scattered ISIS units continue to operate in territory the Americans forcefully keep Syrian government forces out of was not mentioned by the Commander in Chief.
