Pick Your Poison… Updates

April 13, 2018

This must be the all-time record for incidents of poison attacks being in the news, on three continents.
Let’s start with the methodically documented revelations by Jeffrey Kaye about the U.S. using biological warfare on North Korea. This story has been long rumored and was the subject of early hysteria about “brainwashing” of American POW’s who confessed to this germ warfare. It was under that cloak that the U.S. excused some of it’s more horrific experience in the same techniques of breaking the human mind and restructuring behavior. But back to Kaye’s reporting:

Report: U.S. Dropped Plague-infected Fleas on North Korea in March 1952

(Excerpts)

“While U.S. forces carpet bombed North Korea, bombed irrigation dams, and threatened nuclear attack, their most controversial action was the use of bacteriological or biological weapons during the war.

For decades, the U.S. has strenuously denied the use of such weapons. At the same time, evidence of such use was kept from the American people. Even today, very few are aware of what really happened. Only in February 2018 was a full documentary report on the U.S. use of germ warfare during the Korean War, prepared and written by mostly West European scientists 66 years ago, released online in easy-to-read format.

“Pak told interviewers, “Song Chang-Won and I thought that these numerous fleas floating on the surface of water must have been dropped by the American plane circling over our village before dawn. We, therefore, immediately informed the chairman of the Village People’s Committee of this incident.”

The Mobile Epidemic Prevention Corps

The chairman brought the information to the local branch of the newly formed Mobile Epidemic Prevention Corps. As elsewhere, public health exigencies took precedence over forensic concerns, and most of the fleas were destroyed immediately. Even so, some of the fleas were gathered using sterile means and saved for later examination.”
*

“Six days after he discovered the fleas, Pak developed symptoms of plague. On the morning of April 2, he started to feel ill. He felt weak and suffered from chills and severe headache. He developed a high fever… “By the afternoon of April 4, Pak was failing. Delirious, he drifted in and out of consciousness. His lips were turning blue. His vomit was greenish-yellow, and the lymph nodes in his groin were swollen and quite painful. That night, his body temperature started to rapidly fall. He died shortly before midnight.
*

“The report noted: “Since the beginning of 1952 numerous isolated foci of plague have appeared in North Korea, always associated with the sudden appearance of numbers of fleas and with the previous passage of American planes. Seven of these incidents, the earliest dating from 11th Feb., were reported in SIA/1, and in six of them the presence of the plague bacteria in the fleas was demonstrated. Document SIA/4 added the statement that after a delivery of fleas to the neighbourhood of An-Ju on the 18th Feb., fleas which were shown bacteriologically to contain Pasteurella pestis, a plague epidemic broke out at Bal-Nam-Ri in that district on the 25th. Out of a population of 600 in the village, 50 went down with plague and 36 died.”

And Kaye includes this stunning report:

“According to a statement by Colonel Frank Schwable, Chief of Staff of the First Marine Aircraft Wing, given to Chinese interrogators after his plane was shot down in on July 8, 1952, “The general plan for bacteriological warfare in Korea was directed by the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff in October, 1951…. The basic objective was at that time to test, under field conditions, the various elements of bacteriological warfare, and to possibly expand the field tests, at a later date, into an element of the regular combat operations, depending on the results obtained and the situation in Korea.”

Please read the details at the link above, there’s a very detailed analysis.

Now on to the case of the poisoned Russian spy and his daughter; western intelligence has been pushing the explanation that a Russian nerve agent “Novichok” was used to attack the former agent, now living in England.

This comes at a time when accusations of Russian complicity in gas attacks in Syria threaten a broader turn in the proxy war destroying that country. What a great time to shock the world with more unfounded claims that the Russians used a nerve agent to take out their former spy.

But the outstanding blog “Moon of Alabama” has a more likely hypothesis about the poisoning, whether intentional or accidental: Shellfish toxin poisoning.

The Best Explanation For The Skripal Drama Is Still … Food Poisoning

http://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/04/the-best-explanation-for-the-skripal-drama-is-food-poisoning.html

(Excerpt)

“Tore writes:

Craig Murray’s described the pressure on Porton Down to establish that a nerve agent was used in the alleged Skripal attack. I use ‘alleged attack’, because there is a fair chance that this was no attack, only a serious food poisoning from the very start.

The Skripals had a seafood risotto pesce with king prawns, mussels and squid rings at Zizzi, as reported here in the Daily Mail on March 6.

This is a dish with a well known reputation as a source of shellfish poisoning.

The Skripals were okay when they arrived, okay when they left, and passed out 40 minutes later on the bench with symptoms similar to a paralytic reaction from shellfish poisoning (PSP):

Symptoms of PSP could begin within a few minutes and up to 10 hours after consumption.
Symptoms of PSP can include:


Respiratory difficulty, salivation, temporary blindness, nausea and vomiting may also occur.

In extreme cases, paralysis of respiratory muscles may lead to respiratory arrest and death within two to twelve hours after consumption. Seriously affected people must be hospitalized and placed under respiratory care.

Another official PSP Fact Sheet (pdf) provides:

What is the treatment?
Unfortunately, there is no antidote for PSP toxins; however, supportive medical care can be life saving. For example, persons whose breathing muscles become paralyzed can be put on a mechanical respirator and given oxygen to help them breath, and people who develop a cardiac arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm) can be given medications to stabilize their heart rhythm.

The similarity with symptoms and effect derived from a nerve agent are striking, but no surprise:

In fact the substance at work in a case of paralytic seafood poison is a neurotoxin called Saxitoxin (STX) which is among the most potent poisons found in nature. It works the same way as a nerve agent: It acts on the neurons, preventing normal cellular function and leading to paralysis and in worst case death. In fact Saxitoxin is so potent that it was weaponized by the U.S. and used as a chemical weapon – a nerve agent.

The U.S. developed Saxitoxin into a chemical weapon in the 1960s. The U.S. military designation is TZ. It was also used by the CIA for covert operations and liquidations as evidenced by the Church commission – see: Excerpts of CIA inventory 1, 2.”

Please refer to the link above for more information.

———————————————–

I believe these two events – allegations of Russian/Syrian gas attacks on civilians – and the Skripal “nerve agent” poisoning are possibly related to create a larger narrative that the Russians are flinging chemical and biological agents all over the planet.

As evidenced in Jeffrey Kaye’s article on the U.S. dropping plague infested fleas I’d say our government has repeatedly been responsible for similar war crimes.

It’s possible that the Skripals were indeed intentionally poisoned, or perhaps they just got bad seafood. Either way, British and American intelligence and their aligned media assets have seized upon this to manipulate public opinion, and it seems to be working.

Update:

Independent Swiss Lab Says ‘BZ Toxin’ Used In Skripal Poisoning; US/UK-Produced, Not Russian

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-04-14/independent-swiss-lab-says-bz-toxin-used-skripal-poisoning-usuk-produced-not

(Excerpt)

“…according to the independent Swiss state Spiez lab, the substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, which was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states”
————————————-

(Editor) Please note that BZ was developed by the U.S. and is said to be 25-times more powerful than LSD.

UPDATE:

From former ambassador Craig Murray:

Probable Western Responsibility for Skripal Poisoning

https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2018/04/probable-western-responsibility-for-skripal-poisoning/

(Excerpt)

“Here is another theory as to what happened. The Russians pardoned Skripal and allowed him to leave (spy agencies have an understanding that agents will always be swapped after an interval – it’s the only protection they have and helps recruitment). In the UK Skripal would have been thoroughly debriefed by MI6 and MI5 (his ex-handler lives near Salisbury). If at some point they discovered that Skripal was giving them false information, perhaps he was told to do so by the FSB as a condition of his release, lives may have been endangered/lost. If he also was also involved in the ‘golden showers’ dossier then elements in the US would have a reason to act as well. The whole incident was an inside job not to kill him, hence the use of BZ, but to give him a warning and a punishment. The whole thing is being treated as though the authorities know exactly what went on but have to cover it up.”

More from Craig Murray; Skripal and the Steele dossier

Where They Tell You Not to Look

https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2018/04/where-they-tell-you-not-to-look/

(Excerpt)

“We still have no idea of who attacked Sergei Skripal and why. But the fact that, right from the start, the government blocked the media from mentioning Pablo Miller, and put out denials that this has anything to do with Christopher Steele and Orbis, including lying that Miller had never been connected to Orbis, convinces me that this is the most promising direction in which to look.

It never seemed likely to me that the Russians had decided to assassinate an inactive spy who they let out of prison many years ago, over something that happened in Moscow over a decade ago. It seemed even less likely when Boris Johnson claimed intelligence showed this was the result of a decade long novichok programme involving training in secret assassination techniques. Why would they blow all that effort on old Skripal?

That the motive is the connection to the hottest issue in US politics today, and not something in Moscow a decade ago, always seemed to me much more probable. Having now reviewed matters and seen that the government actively tried to shut down this line of inquiry, makes it still more probable this is right.”
