In before the obligatory "time to start investing in Polonium futures"

But seriously... Not an entirely bad investment.

This was something new.

Likely an intense psychotropic drug, combined with a potent analgesic or opioid.

If it was the US it would have cost him his health and much money.  That would bankrupt him right there.

Fool, do you expect the eminent Putin to buy his polonium in the open market?

Never going to happen.. Putin is Putin and the U.S. likes it like that. He's sorta predictable and a blow hard.. What the U.S. doesn't want anytime soon is a possible unstable asshole successor to him. The U.S. would be wise to do whatever to keep him in office as long as possible.

/Yes I'm implying the U.S. does what we accuse Russia of doing..

Yup, and when he gets too uppity we just have our "friends" the Saudis open the spigot and crash the price of oil which pisses off his bosses the oligarchs and Russian mob. That's what Obama did when he went into Ukrain, the sanctions were an annoyance and a public smokescreen, the real action was destroying the value of their primary export. Now that we're a net exporter we can use oil as a very effective leash on the Russian dancing bear.

The Po-210 used to kill Litvinenko has to be artificially made, by neutron bombardment of bismuth. That's partly why it was used - it carries the message that a Very Large Organisation was behind the killing.

On the other hand, it takes weeks to work. It sounds as if these latest cases used something much faster. Nerve agent?

Don't Lag Me Bro: Seriously though, if I was a former Russian operative, I would be hidden in the forest of a third world country under an assumed name. Why aren't these Russians smart enough to not sit around in a public beach?


At a guess:
-Hard to live like that when you're old.
-Whatever country has "claimed" you WILL keep tabs on you, and Russians can follow your case-worker (who will not be a master of subterfuge, they are expensive) to find you.
-Once upon a time living in the open meant you were safe because of gentleman's agreement rules.

One of the grunting, savage reasons that Putin keeps doing this is to cock-slap other nations.  "Hurr, Imma murder people under your protection, ain't nothing you can do about it!  Gurr!"  The same kind of people who get raging erections over his shirtless horseback riding are the kind of people this petty dominance bullshiat speaks to.

The radioactive substances that the FSB use wouldn't even be familiar to scientists if it weren't for the great work of Emelia Earhart in her laboratory in that attic, in the Netherlands.

Why would Russia kill him now?  He was in Russian custody for four years for spying, and Russia traded him for some of their spies.  If they wanted him dead, they had their chance a decade ago much more easily.

Maybe it's the mob that wanted him dead and not Putin.

If they killed him first, they wouldn't have had him available to trade.

Besides, there's some intimidation factor involved in waiting until he thinks he's safe.

Yup now Assange and Snowden will know what will happen if they stop doing what he tells them to do.

I read an article recently that made it clear that we are turning a blind eye to Russian state terrorism in the UK, basically allowing Russia to bully us militarily and economically (gas).

Unfortunately I cannot find a link - anyone here know what I'm wittering on about?

What about the Belorussian hooker in jail in Thailand that says she has all the dirt on the Russian leadership? More interesting story, and I bet she's dead in few days.

FTA, referring to Litvinenko:

The Kremlin has repeatedly denied any involvement in the killing.

Yeah, I believe it.  Knowing what we know now, it was almost certainly just some Russian youths with an over-active sense of patriotism acting completely on their own.  Y'know, like they did with the 2016 election in the USA.  A friend of a friend told me you can definitely buy polonium-210 through the dark web, so it's totes legit.

You really think they would be safer in some third world country?  The third world is not a bunch of little shiathole countries like some presidents seem to think.  Most of them are developed, with just enough functional civil and police services to make it impossible to hide, but not enough to actually protect you from anything.  Better off hiding someplace where the government will actively protect you.

BTW, you do realize that the fact that the Russians found this guy, means that they have someone telling them where to find these guys.  Someone who at least very recently had some kind of top secret security clearence and access to British Intelligence, either because they are in British Intelligence, or a senior government official, or a senior government official or senior intelligent's officer of an allied power.
