I put my money on the Knights of Golem to win.

LeaNder

I did notice you are in Kiev. I thought you were German. Which LeaNder are you this time?

Unlikely, I would have been there. Really the reasons are highly complex. Starting with the fact that I am no activist, maybe? Never have been.

To keep it in our current context: I was glued to my laptop screen 24/7 via Al-Jazeera during the Arab Spring. I was deeply sympathetic to their cause. I am not sure I understood completely, what Pat told me at the time, but after that I tended to watch comparable events from the distance.

My more localized dots for not being in Kiev would circle around the German Visa Affair. I never completely erased for me connected dots around a German privatization - re-governmentalization. No it didn't surface in the publicly broadcasted hearing context. ... Never mind, I might be completely wrong. Fact is events and the more public investigation was triggered around reports of events in Kiev. At least partly.

Fred

LeaNder,

So you are spoofing the IP location. Is that legal in Germany?

So you are spoofing the IP location. Is that legal in Germany?

Well, not illegal in the US apparently. One of the US's most successful startups apparently. The tool is American. I do use it in recognition of my own and e.g. US/British copyright laws concerning media. My top "security expert" advised me to. I mostly obey. At least within limits.

I have already used it independently. Just checked, they still do not alert customers to restrictions. After all the US is the land of the proud and free. ;)

If you check the link below it gets you back into the Arab Spring were it supposedly was used (real or marketing only?), plus financial support in the larger Syrian media perception, if you like, marketing field. Whatever way you wanna look at it. Yes, only one of many minor angles.

Imagine

Trump has kicked out 60 Russian embassy workers, because England was convinced after one day "it must be Russia". A mafia hit of two people by persons unknown is escalated to "usage of chemical weapons in Europe", that is, cause for WWIII.

Where is the American Intelligence Community in this? Someone must be reporting to Trump that it smells like a psychop.

You have made it clear that you are a skilled troll, admitted it actually. pl

Fred

LeaNder,

"My top "security expert" advised me to. I mostly obey. "

Let me guess: German Intellegence, or the National Endowment for Democracy? I would like to think you're on the FBI payroll like Omar Mateen's relatives, but that's just the romantic in me. What's the pay, you've been at it too many years for it to be done for free.

Imagine

That didn't come out right. Meant to express: Making fake videos and fake news targeted for al Qaeda, in an undercover fashion. A fraught, complex situation:

Fred

Imagine,

#34: Nothing to see here with Barack, Bush did it too!

#31: Trump kicked out sixty Russians! That sure beats dropping sixty bombs.

"Where is the American Intelligence Community in this?" The head of FBI counter-intelligence got fired recently. I suspect the rest are a bit busy cleaning up a mess, like the latest from the Islamic Terror attack trial in Orlando:
"Judge rules against Pulse nightclub shooter's widow -The revelation that the Pulse nightclub shooter's father was an FBI informant for 11 years before the attack has little bearing on the trial of the gunman's widow, a judge ruled Monday. U.S. District Judge Paul Byron rejected a defense motion for a mistrial of Noor Salman, who is accused of helping her husband plan his June 2016 mass shooting at the gay nightclub in Orlando, where he killed 49 people."

A remarkably inept hit at that. If the objective was to have two people die, the objective was not obtained. If the objective had nothing to do with the two people who were attacked; then we do not yet know if the objective was met or not.
We do not know the Who, the What, the How, of the Why, and if the Skripals were not the objective then we also do not know the Where of the When.
The Skripal family could merely be the Magician's Assistant in this production.

Fred

Charles,

You myn be unable to determine Why, but reinforcing the Narrative Russia, Russia, Russia and the use of chemical weapons in Syria seems pretty damned obvious.

Charles

I distrust the obvious, not always, but often.
Every Magician's Assistant has long legs, a large endowment and moves just enough to distract the audience from the Magician's trickery. Every bad production on TV in Films or on stage has a MacGuffin; that thing that is supposedly the driving force in the drama and in fact has nada to do with anything. Some Truths are too important to be allowed out without a bodyguard of lies and misinformation and distraction and дезинформация.

Fred

Charles,

"Every bad production on TV in Films or on stage has a MacGuffin" Yeah. You don't need Occam's butterknife to know that every blog attracts its own trolls or "дезинформация" like your comment above. Thanks though, kind of you to take notice.
