Default tRUmp Pressured to Criticize Russia for Poisoning, Sides with Putin Instead of UK

The Day after 9/11, the UK had its top National Security, Intel, and Defense people in Washington, at the white house, at the Pentagon telling us that they were with us and were fully behind us and supported us.

Now, when they need us to help respond to an obvious Chemical Terrorist attack by Russia, our President is silent. Unwilling to back our greatest ally over his masters in Russia.


Quote:
They have treated the use of a military-grade nerve agent in Europe with sarcasm, contempt and defiance,” May stated about Russia, mincing no words: “Their response has demonstrated complete disdain for the gravity of these events. They have provided no credible explanation.” She added that there was no room for “serious criminals and corrupt elites” in Britain, and the large and wealthy Russian émigré population in the country should expect scrutiny, threatening to “freeze Russian state assets wherever we have the evidence that they may be used to threaten the life or property of UK nationals or residents.”

Our Greatest Allies Call for a Security Council Meeting

https://www.axios.com/uk-russia-puti...90a266cd2.html

Quote:
The United Kingdom has called for an urgent meeting of the United Nations Security Council this afternoon to discuss the use of a Russian-manufactured nerve agent against ex- spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter on British soil, per the BBC. And, during a speech to the House of Commons later this morning, Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to announce a "significant" expulsion of Russian diplomats, according to Sky News.

The big picture: After May declared it "highly likely" that Russia was behind the attack during a speech on Monday, she gave the Kremlin a deadline of midnight last night to provide an appropriate response. Russia — at least publicly — continued to deny its involvement in the attack via a series of incendiary social media posts, prompting today's response from the U.K. Also today, all 29 NATO countries have asked Russia to answer the U.K.'s questions in a joint statement

Is it OK to get proof, BEFORE , we send condemnation, or start expulsions or WW3?
But it is true that Trump has no problem shooting his mouth off based on lil to nothing . fired rockets on Syria BEFORE getting confirmation that Assad had used gas. Never did get that BTW

But if the evidence is solid this isn't the 1st time it's happened. But i have to Wonder what we'd expect Russia to do if U.S agents managed to kill the so called traitor E. Snowden with some US military anthrax, while he was still on Russian soil.

Anyone who feels compelled to show disrespect for another, by intentionally misspelling his name (rather than debating his policies), is unworthy of a serious response...

In other words you have nothing worth saying, as usual.

"Reluctantly I have concluded that President Trump is a serious threat to US national security. He is refusing to protect vital US interests from active Russian attacks. It is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of Mr Putin."
