Anti-Russia propaganda is thick enough to cut with a knife and has been raging for years. The people who write and promulgate it must be almost as brain-dead as the fools who buy into it because it is almost always easy enough for a third grader to see through and debunk. Recently a friend sent me an outdated report about the poisoning death of Aleksander Litvinenko and asked my opinion.
You will recall that a British inquiry was carried out last year by a high court judge to prove that Putin is a thug who needs to be ousted via a Soros-led coup. Er, I mean to determine who may have been behind the poisoning death of Aleksander Litvinenko in London’s Millennium Hotel in 2006.
Russia Insider debunked the “Putin done it” story supported factlessly by that inquiry, pointing out that Litvinvenko was in the employ of Russian mafioso Boris Berezovsky (wanted by Interpol at one time) and had no doubt been involved in the smuggling of radioactive isotopes. The author claims various venues that had been used or frequented by Litvinenko had traces of polonium. Thus, the author concludes he “probably” accidentally poisoned himself.
Surely no one will ever know for certain.
But did you know that Litvinenko was an Islamist and a Chechen who sympathized with Chechen terrorists, even blaming the Russian government for terror that these terrorists perpetrated? He had worked in Chechnya as a counter-intel agent with the KGB (see links below). It is not clear where his sympathy for terrorists came from but he may have been recruited into Islam by the terrorists he was supposed to recruit for the Russian cause in Chechnya. Thus, he was supposed to be a counter-intel agent but was in fact a counter-counter intel agent. Thus he was hardly a loyal employee and later turned on his employer. Further, note that the terrorists he was working with in Chechnya were radical Wahhabists, of the Saudi type who make up ISIS, Al-Qaeda and the Taliban, for example. Almost everything he said to the press and the British intelligence agency was therefore highly questionable, and yet his unproven statements to the British authorities were dutifully and solemnly treated in the media as holy writ. Only a deceitful media and a brainwashed readership would trust this man and not take the British “court’s” (it was not a bona fide court of law) verdict with a grain of salt.
For example, although he stated on his deathbed that Putin was behind his murder, there is no way he could have known that because his ties with the Kremlin had been cut off for about 6 years when he made the accusation. Further, a good Wahhabist would naturally lie, even while dying, to make the anti-Wahhabi Russians look bad. To be sure, he did not act out of selfish motives. He acted out of a misguided religious fervor.
The fact that Litvinenko was a Chechen Muslim is a matter of public knowledge. Here is what the Telegraph reported, for example:
Afterwards he said: “I want to thank all my son’s brothers in faith that they prayed for him [Litvinenko] and remember him.” The family come from the North Caucasus, near the war-torn region of Chechnya, where Muslim rebels are fighting Russian forces.
Did Litvinenko choose to migrate to the West because he knew the deep state here was sympathetic to Islamic radicals? I mean, look at how Muslim criminals are coddled in Europe, where the press is muzzled by an unwritten rule never to juxtapose the words “Muslim” and “criminal.” Look how GW Bush’s Iraq invasion caused the Assyrian Christians to flee for their lives. Look at how the “rebels” in Syria – supported by US arms and funds – mistreated Christians. (as reported by mainstream news sources like USA Today, Daily Mail, BBC and numerous others).
Further, Litvinenko had said that the Beslan school siege that killed hundreds of victims was a false flag and had FSB involvement. The public is supposed to believe – as aided and abetted by the msm – that since Litvinenko had been an agent of Russian intelligence, he would have had insider information on this and can therefore be trusted. There is only one catch: Litvinenko was arrested in 1999 for “exceeding the authority of his position” and fled to London in 2000. However, the Breslan school attack occurred in 2004, 5 years later, when Litvinvenko was no longer an insider and could not have provided insider information! It was pure speculation, but was taken at face value by a willingly gullible press and by a deplorably gullible public whose knowledge of Russia and the Russians comes mostly from Sylvester Stallone movies.
Ever since the Age of Enlightenment, the central idea of the elites has been to destroy Christianity. Therefore, they take the word of an Islamist with ties to the mob while impugning a Christian leader without a shred of evidence. Between Putin and Litvinenko, one is/was a thug. Suffice to say it is not Putin.
