Ok, hear me out on this:
Great Britain was in fact behind the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury last month because the UK government is actively trying to foment war with Russia. Why? Because in her weakened state over the Brexit disaster, Theresa May is looking for an enemy to distract the public. Hurling the UK into a nuclear war with Russia will extend May’s term in power by at least 6-8 months, and in that time she should be able to turn public opinion around on her handling of Brexit and get the nation behind her. Then, May can continue using the war with Russia to extend her grip on power, show Europe who is boss by leading the charge against Russia, and recreate Pax Britannica to rule the world alongside America for the foreseeable future.
This was obviously done in collaboration with the neoliberals in the Deep State in America (President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Robert Mueller, etc) who also desire war with Russia to further their imperialist aims around the world. Theresa May likely coordinated the poisoning of the Skripals to time with the Mueller probe so that maximum damage could be inflicted on Vladimir Putin and a huge diplomatic crisis would ensue.
Thankfully, I’m not alone in this theory of mine — the “rogue journalist” from Melbourne, Australia, Caitlin Johnstone has been on the case ever since the story blew up, and has deduced that Russia cannot be to blame for this because of Western imperialism the neoliberals, and false flags:
Perhaps even more interesting is the fact that Skripal had been living unmolested in the UK for years, and yet now just as the US-centralized empire begins worrying about losing its dominant position on the world stage a long-irrelevant former double agent is attacked by a terrifying nerve agent with a Russian-sounding name that both fails to kill him and implicates the Russian government (and, as an added bonus, could have been made by anyone). Very interesting how UK officials are now working to unite Europe against Russia at just the time where that is a strategically essential thing for the western empire to be doing right now.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: truth is the first casualty of war, especially cold war. The US-centralized empire has an extensive history of using lies, propaganda and false flags to manufacture public support for its agendas, and all of those things are essential components in cold war. There’s no reason whatsoever to give these people the benefit of the doubt when things smell fishy.
Like Caitlin, I’d would much rather give Vladimir Putin — a democratically elected, peace loving statesman with a history of benevolence towards minorities, gays, and dissenters, — the benefit of the doubt. The evil western media in collaboration with our free speech hating governments will no doubt censor what Caitlin and I are saying, so if you are reading this, please copy and paste before it’s too late.
The Deep State is always watching you, remember that.
