It is becoming apparent that no country is safe from an attack by another country or regime.
This has become apparent when you read about the vicious attack on the Russian family of Ex spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury. To me it is made worse by the attackers not even caring whether some innocent person was injured by their action.
What would the average Russian citizen think if a similar style of attack was made on, let us say a middle eastern terrorist seeking refuge in Russia and a large group of Russian citizens were caught up in it and they were also injured. I am sure they would be as horrified as we are now.
Sergei Skripal was I believe exchanged in 2010 as part of a spy exchange deal.
Why was this assassination carried out so long after the exchange?
We also read about terrorist attacks carried out in various countries throughout the world, have these always been going on and it is entirely due to social networking that we are becoming aware of it?
How many times is it a case of this type of news is cover for some another news that is buried? Do you remember the comment made some years back during the swine flu epidemic that Jo Moore made the statement that “now is a good day to bury bad news?” I believe the year was 2009.
