    I suppose relations with someone can be called good if they're dead.

    Certainly they could be called stable.

    Rainbow Six and Executive Orders had air-dispersed germ warfare, but neither happened until much later in the story. And in the case of R6, it was narrowly avoided.

    Problem with a 'terrorist act' in the conventional sense is that poison of any type is oddly specific and also hard to get a hold of. Bombs and explosives on the other had can pretty easily be made. This has to have been targeted even if it wasn't a specific target for a specific reason.. But if you are going to go spraying around a nerve agent as a terrorist act why pick a guy and his daughter sitting on a park bench on their own late at night, why not just spray it in to a commuter crowd at peak time..

    (I think his Daughter did it as some sort of revenge for selling out the family and mother Russia, but that's just me and I read a lot of random ass fiction)

    Allegedly, he (Skripal) was behaving out of character at the restaurant.

    Quote Originally Posted by BBC
    Meanwhile, a doctor who was one of the first people on the scene has described how she found Ms Skripal slumped unconscious on a bench, vomiting and fitting. She had also lost control of her bodily functions.

    The doctor, who asked not to be named, told the BBC she moved Ms Skripal into the recovery position and opened her airway, as others tended to her father.

    She said she treated her for almost 30 minutes, saying there was no sign of any chemical agent on Ms Skripal's face or body.

    The doctor said she had been worried she would be affected by the nerve agent, but added that she "feels fine".
    An aside,

    BBC reporting states "The graves of Mr Skripal's wife and son at a Salisbury cemetery were also taped off.", which implies authorities might already be moving toward carrying out exhumations as part of a wider investigation. There are currently two conflicting sources in the media as to how they died, so it's interesting to me that the authorities are showing an interest in the graves so quickly.

    What is kind of pitiful is that the Uk has no way to retaliate, really. I don't see the UK doing the "oops someone drove over the ambassador" thing or "whoops, we accidentally shot down that Russian bomber over the north sea" thing either.

    UK can accidentally hundreds of billions of oligarch money parked in the City banks. But we all know this is not going to happen.

    Russian state television has warned “traitors” and Kremlin critics that they should not settle in England because of an increased risk of dying in mysterious circumstances.

    “Don’t choose England as a place to live. Whatever the reasons, whether you’re a professional traitor to the motherland or you just hate your country in your spare time, I repeat, no matter, don’t move to England,” the presenter Kirill Kleymenov said during a news programme on Channel One, state TV’s flagship station.

    Surely USA could do that for them in return for harboring all those assets?
