    but, it is really cute how much authority you put in the language used by Theresa May.
    especially in this thread were nobody believes a word of what trump says

    so Theresa May is not a politician?

    that same description could literally be applied to Trump, Pence, etc. yet I doubt you would ever hold their statements as such authorities.

    3) taking a page out of the Putin playbook, May is trying to drum up nationalistic fervour to draw support for hitting back against Russia. the greater the public outrage the more support she will have for extra sanctions, Magnitsky style law, etc. plus, trying to stir up a nationalistic frenzy is one of the better known tools in the political playbook for rallying support.

    I've answered your question. now your turn.
    i would say it is number 1

    the thing is...it does not even matter whether it was indiscriminate or not

    the attack was not random...it was targeted

    was it careless? it appears not

    even if it was - what murder or attempted murder isn't

    this is insane.

    I used a word which described an attack which put the general public at risk. It was used correctly.

    Many other people used the same word. People with the most intimate knowledge of the situation, and with the best understanding of the importance and definitions of specific words used in a public description of this kind of event.

    and hilariously, you guys are attacking me for this as if I'm the crazy one, instead of apologizing for being wrong.

    seriously, what is wrong with you?

    Tillerson comes out with a forceful response to a Russian attack on British soil, and the very next day he's fired without warning via a public tweet from the President?

    Sorry, but I'm not buying coincidence here.
