It’s no wonder Putin thinks he can get away with poisoning his adversaries

Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny.

9/2/20
WHEN RUSSIAN opposition leader Alexei Navalny suddenly fell ill two weeks ago, Russian authorities dismissed his supporters’ charges of poisoning and resisted allowing his transfer to a German hospital for treatment. Eventually, they relented — and now the government of Chancellor Angela Merkel is reporting “unequivocal evidence” that Mr. Navalny was attacked with a chemical nerve agent. Once again, the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin has been caught attempting to murder a leading opponent using a weapon banned by international treaty. A statement from Ms. Merkel’s government Wednesday said a German military laboratory has carried out tests that identified the toxin in Mr. Navalny’s body as belonging to the Novichok class, a group of nerve agents developed by the Soviet Union. A similar substance was used to poison exiled Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Britain in 2018. A statement by Berlin’s Charité hospital, where Mr. Navalny is being treated, said he remains on a ventilator and his condition is “still grave.” That, no doubt, will please Mr. Putin, who had pressing reasons to sideline his longtime nemesis. Mr. Putin faces persistent demonstrations in the Siberian city of Khabarovsk and A popular uprising in neighboring Belarus is setting an example for Russians weary of Mr. Putin’s autocratic rule.

No doubt a part of the Kremlin’s calculations was the small price paid for previous attacks. Whether there are more concerted consequences will depend in part on whether President Trump is willing to work with Germany and other allies. Following the Skripal poisoning, Mr. Trump only reluctantly agreed to join diplomatic expulsions by Britain and the E.U. He still has not confronted Mr. Putin about intelligence reports that Russia paid bounties to the Afghan Taliban for killing U.S. soldiers. Nor has he objected to ongoing Russian efforts to help his reelection campaign by smearing Democratic nominee Joe Biden. It’s little wonder Mr. Putin thinks he can get away with another chemical weapons attack. To all appearances, he has the president of the United States in his pocket.

Alexei Navalny was first hospitalized in 'grave condition' on 20 August 2020. It's been over a day now since Berlin declared that Mr. Nalvany had been poisoned with Novichok, a nerve weapon unique to Russia.

13 days have passed and still not a word from Donald Trump. Not surprising, since Trump has also still not condemned the Kremlin for offering bounties on US soldiers in Afghanistan.

If your looking for a reason to not vote for Donald Trump, this one is easy. Trump always looks the other way whenever Vladimir Putin engages in murder and mayhem.

I agree about Trump, Putin controls him and has something on him. Isn't he saying Putin is coming for a private meeting with him at the white house before the election? Maybe he'll give him some poison tips or source to use on his opponent. Trump is so selfish and insane, I don't doubt anything from that scumbag.

In case you did not notice, American cities are looted and burned on Trump watch. You know the same guy who just encouraged voters to commit voter fraud. But I am sure you eat up law-and-order propaganda all the way.

Yes on Trumps watch, democrat governors and mayors are refusing to enforce the law against progressives throwing violent tantrums.

All of the rioting and the violence you're seeing wouldn't be happening if somebody like Donald Trump was in the White House. Oops....
