Trump & May, Zeman & Babiš

16.04.2018 - EB

You don't have to be a Communist or a fan of Tomio Okamura, Miloš Zeman or Vladimir Putin to wonder about the explanations given by Western powers in the Skripal and Douma cases. If the poison used against Sergei and Yulia Skripal was of the "highest purity," how is it possible that the victims are recovering so fast? If the allies struck an alleged chemical-weapons storage facility near Homs, why is there so little concern about the possible release of sarin and other poisonous gases? In both cases, the laws of natural sciences seem to have been overcome. A better explanation should be provided, even if the techniques used to achieve these scientific miracles are so secret that they must be concealed from the public. Yet the broad public isn't very interested in a better explanation. Most people accept what their leaders say. If there are a few naysayers who aren't satisfied, what does it matter to the leaders of the U.S., U.K. or France? In this respect, Donald Trump and Theresa May are very much like Miloš Zeman and Andrej Babiš, who don't care much at all about what a few street protesters say.
