WaPo Calls for Punishing Putin

The Washington Post is a CIA house organ, masquerading as a broadsheet – a shameless, neocon-run operation, featuring propaganda, not real news and information.
Its editors urged the Trump administration to ally with Theresa May-led Tories in punishing Moscow – joining the baseless accusation crowd, embarrassing itself in the process, saying:
"THE USE of a military-grade Russian nerve agent in an attack inside Britain shows that Western governments are failing to deter…Vladimir Putin from increasingly audacious acts of aggression."
"The British government's conclusion that it is 'highly likely' that Russia carried out the attempted assassination of a former spy and his daughter follows by weeks a military assault, backed by artillery and tanks, by Russian irregulars on US positions in Syria."
