Please, by all means dispute their facts in the story, if you can. Otherwise, stop trying to emulate Trump on this thread, who would've trashed it before reading it too.
ZeroHedge is a batshit site.
This is widely known.
Trump is batshit crazy.
This is widely known.
However Zero hedge posts the actual news, rather than wait for the government's official response. Their predictions of the market are batshit for the most part, but all market analysis is, best to stick with their news, which isn't tainted like mainstream media and as proof of that remark i present you with a disclaimer of sorts that arrived on their website today.Tyler Durden for Zero Hedge wrote:Over the weekend, Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov created quite a stir when he announced that the independent Swiss state Spiez lab said that Sergei Skripal, a former Russian double agent, and his daughter Yulia, were poisoned with an incapacitating toxin known as 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate, or simply BZ, adding that while the toxin was never produced in Russia, it was in service in the US, UK and other NATO states.
However, as RT reports, Andreas Bucher, Spiez Laboratory’s strategy and communications head, told TASS on Monday, that:
“We cannot have any statement on that...”
“We are contractually bound to the OPCW for confidentiality. So, the only institution that could confirm what Mr. Lavrov was saying is the OPCW. We cannot confirm or deny anything.”
As we noted previously, the Swiss lab is also an internationally recognized center of excellence in the field of the nuclear, biological, and chemical protection and is one of the five centers permanently authorized by the OPCW.
And yet the Swiss lab in a letter to RT states:Spiez Labs wrote:OPCW does not disclose the identity of designated labs that contribute to OPCW activities. These labs are also bound by secrecy agreements. These arrangements exist to ensure the integrity of the analysis and results provided by the designated labs.
Imho, these arrangements are strictly so bullshit politics and propaganda can continue to rear their ugly heads, in a world that's filled to the brim with them already.
At least on Zero Hedge you can find the important news worthy events occurring worldwide, unlike any of our mainstream news sources, here, or abroad. For news the internet is our savior.
It's cute the way you work Trump into every reply.
Why is that?
It's your tell.
