Re The Skripal Case — The Death of Dawn Sturgess Was No Accident
Originally published Sep 6, 2018
Take a look at this:
I had been under the misimpression that the perfume bottle of Novichok that ultimately killed Dawn Sturgess (after she sprayed the “perfume” on her wrist) had just been tossed away in a park, presumably to dispose of evidence. And I presumed that it was a horrible accident that it had been found and used.
But in fact, the packaged bottle was deposited in a charity bin. Which is to say, it most probably would have been sold to some unsuspecting customer in a charity shop if Charlie Rowley hadn’t first found it in the bin and given it to his girlfriend.
What this means is that the perpetrator of the Skripals’ poisoning intended to kill a random member of the British public.
If professional GRU assassins had simply intended to do a hit on Skripal, what would have been the point of also sadistically killing some random person? That doesn’t add up.
And it’s not likely that some nutcase loner sadist like the Unibomber had done this, because such people are not likely to have access to Novichok.
However, if the group that attacked the Skripals had the intent of framing Russia for the crime, then throwing in an extra death or two would serve to stoke the outrage against Russia.
Update 3-24-2019. It has just been clarified that the charity bin that where the "perfume" was found is emptied every day. Which means that the British government's preferred patsies Petrov and Boshirov could not have placed it there, as they had left the UK 3 months earlier.
