    I'm pretty sure Putin is well on top of this thing....you don't start something like this without knowing the end point.
    Its an interesting little play...just a gentle reminder that pax americana is dead and that Russia is still in the game.

    He really needs to keep his felonious activities in his country where they need not be felonies.
    He doesn't get to make a mess elsewhere.

    It's a demonstration of the total fatuity of leaving the EU and becoming a nowhere-much making loud noises and beating its hollow chest.

    Very late indeed, but it's something. The trouble is that, with Trump behind him, Putin will just laugh.

    Ah okay....indeed....so going back a tad...the UK leaves the EU customs union and we all of a suden become....what....kicked out of NATO? Kicked-off the Security Council? Out of the G20...etc...etc...
    Your assumption is that because we leave a trade organistation we assume a mantle of invisability?

    No - just that it has nothing whatever to do with NATO, which is more a gesture at a military museum than anything relevant. If we want to commit economic suicide, too bad.

    interesting... I guess you are more in the loop then...
    ....can you let us know the outcome of the discussions following the report from the OPCW?
    As opposed to what... an unco-ordinated mechanism operating on an ad hoc basis. You feel NATO is not taken seriously in the world?
    how so?
