Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

From afew's link and falsification of his words:

Alexander Litvinenko because -- and this was his sole piece of "evidence" -- the killers used polonium, which is named after Poland.

Statement by the stormy present [?] is pure bull. Quoting from the report:

Intelligence experts point out that polonium was discovered by Marie Curie (née Maria Sklodowska) in 1897 and named after her native homeland Poland (Polonia in Latin) to express her support for Polish independence against its partition by Russia, Prussia and Austria.
    "While a French citizen, Marie Skłodowska Curie (she used both surnames) never lost her sense of Polish identity. She taught her daughters the Polish language and took them on visits to Poland. She named the first chemical element that she discovered - polonium, which she first isolated in 1898 - after her native country." [source Wikipedia]

Before Putin moved in to take over Yukos Oil from the Russian criminal syndicates, there were plans to build a Russian-German gas pipeline through Poland. After Poland was taken over by a neo-con team of identical twins Lech and Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who serve as President and Prime Minister, respectively, Poland not only began to conduct a witch hunt against ex-Communists but also became a base of operations for the anti-Putin Russian-Israeli exiled gangsters and oligarchs.

Named as Defense Minister was former American Enterprise Institute resident scholar Radek Sikorski, who also happens to be married to Washington Post editorial board member and leading neo-con journalist Anne Applebaum, also a leading critic of Putin (along with a number of so-called "liberals," including Clinton ambassador to the UN Richard Holbrooke).

After Putin decided, along with former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, to bypass Poland and build the Russo-German pipeline under the Baltic Sea, Sikorski unleashed a barrage against Russia and Germany. He likened the pipeline deal to the 1939 Molotov-Ribbentrop Agreement that carved up Eastern Europe, including Poland, between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Sikorski asked German Chancellor Angela Merkel to cancel the pipeline deal but she refused.

Huh? What does that mean?

Pity stormy isn't around any more, or you'd have a debate on your hands.

As for me, I'll just say that Wayne Madsen has been discussed often here, and the conclusion is that he's one of those people who make a name for themselves peddling conspiracy theories based on flimsy connect-the-dots evidence.
