“Curiouser and curiouser,” said the Cheshire Cat. 

Courtesy of The Guardian:

The head of the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence agency, has died after a “serious and long illness”, the Kremlin has announced.

The defence ministry said General Colonel Igor Korobov, 62, who has run the spy agency since 2016, was “a wonderful person, a faithful son of Russia and a patriot of his homeland.” It did not give further details about his death.

The agency is believed to be Russia’s largest foreign intelligence outfit, and stands accused over the Novichok attack in Salisbury that targeted former GRU colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia. The attempt, notable for its blunders, has strained ties between Russia and the UK.

The ministry statement said: “The leadership of the Defence Ministry of the Russian Federation, General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (GSA) and Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation inform with great sadness that on 21 November 2018, after a serious and long illness, head of the (GRU), deputy chief of the GSA Colonel General Korobov Igor Valentinovich passed away at the age of 63.”

“The memory of a wonderful person, a true son of Russia, a patriot of the Fatherland Colonel General Korobov Igor Valentinovich will forever remain in our hearts. We express condolences to his family and friends.”

Now people die, that’s a fact, but here is the odd thing about this particular death. 

It followed a “long” illness, and that illness started after a meeting with Vladimir Putin.

Courtesy of the Daily Mail:

President Vladimir Putin personally gave a dressing down to the head of Russian spy agency GRU over ‘deep incompetence’ shown in the Salisbury poisonings and other international operations.

GRU chief Col-Gen Igor Korobov, 62, reportedly emerged shaken and in sudden ‘ill health’ after his confrontation with the furious Russian president.

Korobov’s telling off came as the second Salisbury suspect was named as a GRU doctor, who gave himself away by using his first name and real date of birth on his fake identity passport.

Dr Alexander Mishkin’s false identification papers also listed GRU headquarters in Moscow as his home address.

The identification of the novichok poisoning spook came as Russian Defence Ministry officials reportedly met with senior GRU staff to blast them over the agency’s recent foreign operations.

The secret meeting on Saturday reportedly heard furious accusations over the ‘morons’ behind missions in Britain, the Netherlands and the US.

So Putin was angry at how clumsy the attempted murder on a political enemy was carried out, and then after screaming at the guy in charge, that guy gets sick, suffers for a while, and then drops dead. 

There will, of course, be no official autopsy publicized because fuck you rest of the world. 

However, if there were an autopsy performed, I would bet my house that there might have been a little of this poison found in his system. 

Did that doctor really sign his first name and give the GRU headquarters as his home address on his fake ID? 

Damn, now that guy kind of deserves to be poisoned.

    $WamP Mon$ter$ “the peak of the monstrosity is, in FACT, the Trump administration.”
    “JPMorgan Chase and the others. They’re increasing their investments in fossil fuel development. The energy corporations are working all over the world to try to find new resources that destroy the environment.”
    “It’s as if we’re kind of like the proverbial lemmings just happily marching off the cliff, led by leaders who understand very well what they’re doing, but are so dedicated to enriching themselves and their friends in the near future that it simply doesn’t matter what happens to the human species,” Chomsky lamented. “There’s nothing like this in all of human history. There have been plenty of monsters in the past, plenty of them. But you can’t find one who was dedicated, with passion, to destroying the prospects for organized human life. Hitler was horrible enough, but not that.”

    85,000 children have thus far died of starvation in Yemen
    “Saudi Arabia arrested some of the country’s most prominent human rights activists in May, just days before the country lifted its ban on women driving. Many of the detained activists worked on the campaign to get women the right to drive.” “Women in Saudi Arabia continue to live under guardianship laws, which put men in almost total control of their lives. The reasoning for this is that women need protection — from men, from the influences of the West, from what might come from even using their own names.” “Saudi Arabia for its part, sees the president’s statement as a total exoneration and, according to CBS, is anxious to
    “return to business as usual.”

      “In another development, about 200 British military personnel and eight Royal Air Force (RAF) Typhoon jets have arrived in Saudi Arabia to take part in a joint military exercise.
      The RAF described it as a “pre-planned exercise” but the timing is potentially embarrassing to the UK government, BBC defence correspondent Jonathan Beale says.
      Britain has previously called on Saudi authorities to fully explain Khashoggi’s death.”

      Published Sept 11th “The longer this cruel war lasts in Yemen, the more permanent the damage will be. The people of Yemen will be busy fighting poverty, cholera and water scarcity and rebuilding their country. The crown prince must bring an end to the violence and restore the dignity of the birthplace of Islam.”

      ““What got him killed, frankly… he was on the take from the Saudi government, he was eating at the trough, he was receiving Saudi money… then he turned,” Whiton said. “So he went from being a supporter to being an opponent. And the Washington Post, which frankly has some culpability here, put out his stuff. I mean, he put out articles about how great the Muslim Brotherhood was.”” “The former State Department official also said that the CIA did America a “disservice” by concluding that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman had personally ordered his agents to take out Khashoggi.”

      ““Yes, the CIA concluded that the crown prince of Saudi Arabia was directly involved in the assassination of Khashoggi,” Reed told CNN.

      “They did it, as has been reported to the press, with high confidence, which is the highest level of accuracy that they will vouch for,” “It’s based on FACTS, it’s based on analysis. The notion that they didn’t reach a conclusion is just unsubstantiated. The CIA has made that clear.””

    “Two Fox News anchors apologized to viewers on Thursday after a guest likened Hillary Clinton to herpes. Turning Points USA Director of Spanish Engagement Anna Paulina made the remark during a discussion about the controversy over the former Democratic presidential candidate’s private emails. When Fox News Rick Leventhal said he was “amazed” that Clinton was still generating headlines, Paulina quipped, “She won’t go away, she’s like herpes.” Leventhal, apparently taken aback by the comment, quickly stepped in to say the remarks were “not appropriate.” After Paulina was apparently removed from the rest of the segment, Leventhal apologized to viewers for the “language that was used.” Fox News anchor Arthel Neville later issued a separate apology. “We want to reiterate that we do not condone the language that Anna Paulina just displayed here, and we apologize to Secretary Clinton for that,” Neville said. “Fox News does not condone her sentiment.”
