West should be wary of casting first stone in spy case

daughter Yulia were found on a bench after they were attacked with a nerve agent.
The anti-Russian rhetoric and fear mongering in the West has reached fever pitch in the wake of the attempted assassination of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

British Prime Minister Theresa May expelled 23 Russian diplomats in retaliation for what she pronounced to be President Vladimir Putin’s “despicable acts.” Britain’s foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, took things even further when he drew parallels between Putin’s present-day Russia and Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany in 1936.

Canada and 14 other western countries followed the U.K.’s lead in expelling diplomats from their Russian embassies. The U.S. has booted out 60 Russians and Heather Nauert, a spokesperson with the State Department denounced Putin’s regime as having “tentacles . . . It’s a beast from the deep sea.”

In addition to the diplomatic response, NATO commanders are urging member states to bring more of their military units up to full combat capability. This is crazy stuff.

Nazi beasts committing despicable acts! Sound the alarm! Mobilize the militias!

Given the overwhelming combined military might of NATO’s 29 member states, the current panic is akin to an elephant being terrified of a mouse.  (more...)
