Boris Johnson has warned that the UK must take “every possible precaution” to protect itself from Russian retaliation following the coalition air strikes on Syria.
The Foreign Secretary said Moscow had a track record of launching cyber attacks on infrastructure and interfering in the democratic processes of other countries.
His comments come amid concern that Russia may start a clandestine campaign of retribution, following strikes carried out bu the US, UK and France on targets on of the Moscow-backed Syrian regime.
I’ve every confidence that the Boris, like the Donald, has our best interests at heart, and is able and willing to repulse attacks by
The Soviet Union Russia. Not. I doubt Boris even knows what a cyber attack is.
The Boris claimed Porton Down had evidence the Skripals had been attacked by Russians at Putin’s command. He lied then, as he always does. Now he claims that Syrian President Assad was responsible for the chemical attack on Douma in Syria, bombing alleged Syrian chemical warfare facilities ahead of an inspection by UN-backed experts from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), so that evidence one way or another can’t be found.
It’s not as though the British government is actually averse to using chemical weapons. It supported Saddam Hussein when he used them against Iranians.
But May prefers to shoot first and ask questions later, as she labours under the impression this makes her look like a strong leader like Trump, another twit. She wants her Falklands, just like Maggie.
Fair enough, we can’t believe a word the Russians say. Putin is ex-KGB, though how ex is up to debate. He’s a mobster. But we have also reached the point where we can’t believe a word the British government says. May and Johnson are inveterate liars. Neither would know the truth if it stared them in the face. To them, the truth is whatever lie they think serves them at the time.
So god knows where we go from here, and god doesn’t even exist.
