Head of MI6 – Warns Russia
ST ANDREWS, Scotland
The Head of Britain’s foreign intelligence service, Alex Younger, is about to send a clear warning to the Kremlin today in that Russia should not make the mistake of underestimating the West.
The warning follows a nerve agent attack on a retired double agent in England which in turn, stoked fears about Russian covert activity abroad.
The attack on Sergei Skripal, a former Russian military intelligence officer was in fact carried out by Russian agents, you would be pretty hard pressed to find anyone but those in the Kremlin who would argue that.
Yet, before everyone pounces on the back of Russia here, Sergi betrayed MI6 agents, US agents and many, many more, including those of his own homeland.
Basically the guy was all too willing to work with the highest bidder, his greed overtook his better judgement.
American and British Intelligence were both responsible for the deaths of scientists a few years back, so I hardly see the reasoning behind this casting of stones. Sergei was a dirtbag, he turned on his own when they wouldn’t pay him what he wanted so he sold them out to someone who was willing to pay more and he then turned on the hands the fed him all the way around making quite a full circle of betrayal and deceit.
This is the oldest story in the book of spies.
The most curious aspect of all of this is that Russia has been busy creating allies with the west’s enemies, if anyone has bothered to notice this, at all.
Those enemies are powerful, dangerous and unpredictable.
Which translates as the Kremlin is working up to something bigger than anyone has anticipated so far.
