The U.K. was the target of a CHEMICAL WEAPON attack. If this had happened in the US, it would be called #terrorism‼️

Plus, it appears likely that #Russia🇷🇺 is responsible for this act of terror.🤬

Notice the SILENCE from Trump.🙄

The U.K. has deployed *hundreds* of soldiers, bomb disposal specialists, marines, RAF personnel were and EXPERTS IN CHEMICAL WARFARE‼️ 2/
Experts in FULL HAZMAT SUITS set up tents over the grave & memorial of #Skripal wife & son, who both died in recent years.🤔

Police dismissed reports that an exhumation took place on Friday but would not discuss why there was a flurry of activity at the cemetery.🤨 3/
The death certificate of #Skripal’s wife (age 59) says she died of cancer in 2012. His son (age 43) died in Mar’17 in St Petersburg in UNINOWN circumstances👉🏼cremated. Most attention was being paid to his son’s memorial stone👉🏼topped by a model of a St Bernard dog.🤨 4/
One of the officers who responded to the #Skripal attack, DS Nick Bailey, remains seriously ill.

Unclear whether he was poisoned at the scene where the Russians were found, or contaminated at Skripal’s home👉🏼believed more likely that he was contaminated at their HOME.🤔 5/
The use of a nerve toxin is seen as a key indicator of possible Kremlin involvement👉🏼such substances usually held only in state military stockpiles.

This is because nerve agents are VERY difficult to manufacture and deliver properly.🤨 6/
I have substantial experience developing countermeasures to biological weapons. Although chemical weapons differ in how they are toxic, there are similarities in the challenges of manufacturing and delivering bio/chem warfare agents.👩‍⚕️💊💉 7/
If the chem weapon was delivered by inhalation, an aerosol likely was used👉🏼VERY CHALLENGING.

Aerosols are like GOLDILOCKS👉🏼if droplets are too small, the toxin “floats away” & doesn’t get into the targets’ lungs. If too big, they don’t disperse/can’t get to the lungs.🤔 8/
In addition, the person who delivered the toxin is at-risk to be contaminated (just like Litvinenko’s murderers were). In this case, a gas mask likely protected the attacker(s).🤨 9/
Public evidence points to a STATE-SPONSORED #terrorism attack using a CHEMICAL WEAPON‼️

Given that the victim was #Skripal, a #Russian🇷🇺mole who spied for MI6, and his daughter, it STRONGLY suggests that #Russia was behind the attack.

PS: here is more information on how nerve agents (a type of CHEMICAL WEAPON) work, and why Sergei #Skripal and his daughter remain in critical condition, whereas the police officer is stable and conscious.👇🏼
