This whole ‘Russian Spy Poising’ story when considered critically doesn’t make any sense, and borders on comedy due to the unrealistic claims and the unsubstantiated hysteria that it has caused . But unfortunately the potentially earth shattering nuclear consequences don’t make this a laughing matter.
The information below has me to believe that this event was a complete setup. I’m not going to guess at who’s actually responsible but I most certainly don’t think it was the Russian government. Though there are many reasons to question this story, here are a few of my main ones:
- If they wanted this guy dead, why not kill him when they had him in custody for 4 years, he could have an “accident”, get food “Poisoning”, get in a fight, etc. no one would have know and he would be dead.
- If for some reason (of which there seem to be zero) you decide to do it now, why not kill him in a more ‘traditional’ way? hire a hit-man, it’s not rocket science, it’s immediate and wouldn’t implicated you in any way. Why create a spectral out of something so trivial. Muggings go “wrong” all the time…..
I could go one but u/oaklandbrokeland, does a much better job.
But don’t take my word for it.
