    Grow up.

    The Russians used a Chemical Nerve Agent more toxic than fucking VX Gas on the sovereign territory of another country. It's not an exaggeration to say that is an act of war. The ex-GRU spy and his daughter were not the only victims; a British police officer is in a serious but stable condition in the same hospital.

    If Putin is allowed to get away with this, it makes the job of every Western intelligence agency immeasurably harder. The entire reason such agencies exist is to gain information on the enemy. And one of the best ways to do that is to recruit sources within your enemy's various security and military forces.

    No one is going to take the risk of passing secrets to MI6, the CIA etc etc if they believe they won't be protected. This is one of the reasons the Russians used a Nerve Agent that could be so easily traced: they were sending a clear message to anyone who might follow in Skripal's footsteps that it doesn't matter where they run to or who is supposed to be protecting them. They, and their families, will pay the price.

    My dear chap, who do you think are the natural enemies of the Russians?;)

    Remember what Patton wanted to do at the end of WWII in Europe?:)

    But now the Russians are the Nazis gassing people.

    At least the Nazis had the decency to do it in the shower.

    Putin gasses people in the street.

    Joking aside, it's all fun and games until someone starts throwing around WMD's in a major Western city. Putin has to be backed down. Russians only respect strength. You cannot appeal to their better nature; by and large, they don't have one. Churchill's infamous comment on the Germans - "They are at your throat or at your feet" - applies equally well to the Russians.

    If Putin is allowed to assassinate people in Western nations without any consequences, it will serve to embolden him. He must be made to realise that Western nations are not his personal suka.

    They tried to blame russia for two chemical attacks already, I guess theyre hoping 3rd times a charm. Russia using easily traceable nerve agent in a western country in public, right. Its so transparent anyone can see it.

    Russia is being set up by the west, again..

    Well Trump opted for firing the guy who dared to publicly agree with May, so you can be sure the US won't be backing Putin down in anyway whatsoever. Seems like Trump's goal is to just make him more brazen.

    Likely the last one...
    We've been pushed around and bullied by the EU for two years now, we'll do absolutely nothing against Russia.

    So you're okay if you act like a Nazi as long as it's in your interests.

    Gotcha.

    No we weren't.

    @KnightTemplar and I were exchanging our normal banter and you're just a Russophile.


    Do you think it's good or bad that the Russians are using WMDs to carry out assassinations in the cities of our most trusted ally?

    - Contempt for International Law.

    - Violate other nation's sovereign territory.

    - Murder political opponents.

    - Aggressive use of propaganda.

    - Believe there is a conspiracy against their country.

    - Leader is surrounded by a cult of personality.

    If the Stahlhelm fits...:rolleyes:

    I think it's bad.

    However, I don't think it's bad as overthrowing multiple sovereign governments and plunging countries into civil wars that kill hundreds of thousands of people and then giggling about it on TV like a schoolgirl.
