How many of these attacks will the UK tolerate before invoking Article V? This is the second act of war in a week!


https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news...his-london-home

quote:

A Russian exile who was close friends with the late oligarch Boris Berezovsky has been found dead in his London home, according to friends.

Nikolai Glushkov was discovered by his family and friends late on Monday night, aged 68. The cause of death is not yet clear. One of his friends, the newspaper editor Damian Kudryavtsev, posted the news on his Facebook page.

In the 1990s, Glushkov worked for the state airline Aeroflot and Berezovsky’s LogoVAZ car company. In 1999, as Berezovsky fell out with Vladimir Putin and fled to the UK, Glushkov was charged with money laundering and fraud. He spent five years in jail and was freed in 2004.

In recent years, Glushkov had lived in London, where he received political asylum. In 2011, he gave evidence at the court case brought by Berezovsky against his fellow oligarch Roman Abramovich, who remained on good terms with the Kremlin.

If I was Russia I'd start throwing my weight around, why not? Someone else said it months ago and I've never forgotten it, I even put it on a protest sign:

"What a weird way to lose the Cold War."

My shock and surprise hasn't really lessened for me since the election, it still feels surreal.

BBC just aired 2 shows about Putin.

Russia's Fake Election (march 8th)
Putin: The New Tsar (march 9th)

Is MI5 up to something? Or is Putin just "campaigning," making himself look like a badass increases his popularity at home.

Remember when you watched the news and just took the reporting at face value?

The death penalty has little to do with it. If a russian operative was somehow caught the americans would make him talk, and suddenly the sanctions would turn into blockades.

I mean, maybe pre-Trump. Now there'd just be some hemming and hawing about how we can't tell who it was for sure and can we really trust the intelligence community I mean Putin says it wasn't them and could be anyone. Even some kid in his parents' basement!

Last year russian mob went on a local big business robbery campaign including literally tunneling under a hardware store and dropping the safe out that way and afaik they were never caught so I'm pretty sure if russian mob wanted to off you in the US you're doneski.

Reassisted Retrogression

world nuked, so what


Seriously though, Putin is forcing the rest of the world to play his game. He seems to know just how far to push things but I wonder how well he has calculated all of this. If NATO wants heavy sanctions and the US backs out due to Trump's piss.mp4, the resulting fallout from a Trump presidency could be worse than was initially calculated.

I hope this speeds up Mueller's team a little bit without making them blow their load too early.
