    Military option isn't really an option, russia is controlled by gangsters, sanctions need to be imposed. It's been discussed that if the UK government can find the names of who was behind this attack then they can freeze their assets, russia are not doing great economically, crippling them even more would be the answer.

    Russian exile Nikolai Glushkov found dead at his London home

    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news...ikolai-glushkov-found-dead-at-his-london-home

    "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. 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 fellow oligarch Roman Abramovich, who remained on good terms with the Kremlin."

    Russian spy attack: Hundreds in Salisbury could be poisoned in years to come with 'no cure', says nerve agent developer

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/u...gei-skripal-infection-risk-year-a8253771.html

    One of the Russian chemical weapons scientists who developed the Novichok nerve agent has warned that hundreds of people could be at risk for years following the attack in Salisbury. Vil Mirzayanov, who fled to the US two decades ago, claimed Sergei Skripal and his daughter would not recover from the poisoning. “There is no cure,” he told Sky News from his home in New Jersey. “There are antidotes but…they will be invalid for whole life.”

    Dr Mirzayanov said Novichok was so powerful that extremely small doses could remain a danger to public health for years, listing possible symptoms including headaches and loss of coordination. “It’s very bad because even the very small doses, very small, still they are very effective and then there will be consequences for years probably,” he added.

    The former Soviet Union scientist said public health advice, including washing clothes and sealing belongings was “not enough” and confirmed that hundreds of people could be at risk. Asked whether he felt guilty for his part in developing Novichok, he added: “I participated in this criminal enterprise, because of that I’m probably the most fiery enemy of these chemical weapons.

    “It’s a weapon of mass murder.”

    Tillerson says U.K. spy poisoning ‘clearly’ came from Russia

    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/tillerson-says-u-k-spy-poisoning-clearly-came-russia-n856056

    In a statement released by the State Department on Monday evening, Tillerson called Russia "an irresponsible force of instability in the world, acting with open disregard for the sovereignty of other states and the life of their citizens."

    Trump said he would speak with British Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday about the poisoning.

    "As soon as we get the facts straight, if we agree with them, we will condemn Russia or whoever it may be," he said.

    Trump says he made up trade claims in meeting with Trudeau

    https://edition.cnn.com/2018/03/15/politics/trump-trudeau-trade-meeting/index.html

    President Donald Trump boasted at a private fundraiser Wednesday of making up trade claims during a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

    "Trudeau came to see me. He's a good guy, Justin. He said, 'No, no, we have no trade deficit with you, we have none. Donald, please,'" Trump said during a speech to donors in Missouri, according to audio obtained by The Washington Post and confirmed to CNN by an attendee. "Nice guy, good-looking guy, comes in — 'Donald, we have no trade deficit.' He's very proud because everybody else, you know, we're getting killed." He continued: "I said, 'Wrong, Justin, you do.' I didn't even know. ... I had no idea. I just said, 'You're wrong,'" Trump recalled. "You know why? Because we're so stupid. ... And I thought they were smart. I said, 'You're wrong, Justin.' He said, 'Nope, we have no trade deficit.' I said, 'Well, in that case, I feel differently,' I said, 'but I don't believe it.'" Trump said he asked an aide to check if he was correct in telling Trudeau the US runs a trade deficit with Canada. "I sent one of our guys out, his guy, my guy, they went out, I said, 'Check, because I can't believe it,'" Trump said. "'Well, sir, you're actually right. We have no deficit, but that doesn't include energy and timber. ... And when you do, we lose $17 billion a year.' It's incredible."

    Trump claims California is 'begging' for see-through border wall as he views prototypes

    https://news.sky.com/story/trump-cl...h-border-wall-as-he-views-prototypes-11288845

    The US President has retained his election commitment to build a wall along the California-Mexico border and went so far as to claim on Tuesday: "If you don't have a wall system, you won't have a country". While viewing prototypes for the wall, he said: "They have a lot of problems in Mexico, they have a lot of problems over there, they have the cartels. "We're fighting the cartels and we are fighting them hard, nobody fought them like we fought them. He added: "The state of California is begging us to build walls in certain areas, they won't tell you that, but we said no we won't do it until we build the whole wall. "There are certain areas where they are really wanting us to build a wall because people are complaining, people are pouring in." Speaking later at California's Marine Corps Air Station, the President suggested there could be a "space force" akin to the country's air force. He also said "very soon we're going to Mars", adding "you wouldn't even be thinking about it" if Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 presidential election.

    Russia Sends a Chilling Warning to America over Syria

    http://nationalinterest.org/blog/the-buzz/russia-sends-chilling-warning-america-over-syria-24908

    Russia is warning the United States firmly that it will not tolerate attacks on its military forces in Syria. “If lives of the Russian officers are threatened, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation will retaliate against missile and launch systems,” Gen. Valery Gerasimov, Russia’s chief of the general staff said. If U.S. forces intervene in Syria and hit uniformed Russian military forces, the Kremlin is basically warning the United States that it will hit back and that there will be a war. “A strike on Russian military forces means war, but also a strike near Damascus is likely to affect the Russian forces,” Vasily Kashin, a senior fellow at the Center for Comprehensive European and International Studies at Moscow's Higher School of Economics told The National Interest.
