The American fake news is not at fault here. This Salisbury incident has gotten sparse coverage here just because America is so isolationist and it didn’t happen here. Cheops Books LLC is interested only because we visited Salisbury in 2012 and made it a place of significance in the Edward Ware Thriller Series.
Cheops Books LLC has read that Salisbury is NOT carrying on as normal. It’s tourist trade has taken a big hit. Even people from Great Britain won’t go there let alone tourists from America. This is part of what I am talking about.
Also as to how it spreads, how would you know who was there at the time or who comes from Salisbury if you are a stranger in a strange land? If you are paranoid enough, you would tend to avoid everybody because you don’t know who is who. Also you wonder if these secret Russian agents are still at large. What is their next plan? Are they going after someone else in Great Britain? Who? When? Where? You think you might be unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The Russians may be claiming they were framed, but that is impossible. Terrorists wouldn’t have access to such materials. The guy was a Russian spy. How many others would know that except the Russians? Cheops Books LLC will agree that it may not have been Putin, but it has to be somebody he knows.
Cheops Books LLC will publish Salisbury Affair by Dora Benley on May 4.

Cheops Books LLC Took Shore Excursion To Salisbury:
When Cheops Books LLC took the shore excursion in July of 2012 to Salisbury Cathedral and Stonehenge, the tour guide told us when we were coming into town in Salisbury about his memories of World War 2 as a little boy. He remembered being given candy by American and Canadian GI’s waiting to be shipped out for operations such as D-Day. He showed us where all the units were housed along the roads as we got closer and closer to Salisbury.
The tour guide did not mention chemical weapons factories outside of Salisbury, but what we suspect is that they must be north of town since south of town is the New Forest which we drove through and which is a national park. But we are sure they are there as you say.
The area around Salisbury has been from time immemorial a place to see the coming and going of armies in Britain from the time of the Romans and Julius Caesar to the time of William the Conqueror and onward to the present time. In fact the whole south coast of England along the Channel from Southampton to Dover is important from the strategic point of view. Dover Castle was actually used during WW2. The evacuation from Dunkirk was directed from the castle.
That is one of the reasons Cheops Books LLC chose Salisbury as the town nearest Ware Hall, home of Colonel Sir Edward Ware, hero of the Edward Ware Thrillers At War Series. It is a military setting. He is in the military. All of his ancestors back to Roman times have been in the military, too.
Still that is no justification for the Russians to use chemical weapons there especially against civilians. Cheops Books LLC remembers that the town also had a medieval atmosphere. Salisbury Cathedral itself had such a medieval feel about it that it might as well have had knights in shining armor at the doors. It certainly had a lot of stained glass windows. All around town are bronze age burial mounds. What is now to happen to all of this?

Cheops Books LLC Betrayed By Russians:
Cheops Books LLC is about to publish a novel in the Edward Ware Thriller Series called Salisbury Affair. It is about Dora and Edward’s wedding at Salisbury Cathedral. We are having a Facebook Party on May 4, and the debate is going to be about this subject.
We here at Cheops Books LLC feel betrayed that the Russians attacked Salisbury. It is as if they attacked our novel. That is a place that the author, Dora Benley, has incorporated into the world of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War novels. It is the town closest to Edward’s estate, Ware Hall, the ancestral home of his family that we find out later goes back to Roman times.
Salisbury Cathedral is where Dora and Edward were married. Ware Hall is practically burned to the ground in Captive at the Berghof by Helga and Hitler in September of 1940 during the Blitz, killing Edward’s mother. That is enough of a profanation.
But this chemical weapon of the Russians is far worse. After World War 2, the Wares renovate Ware Hall with Dora’s money. Leopold later completes the job as he reveals in Dark 3: Special Edition. But you cannot renovate what is contaminated by chemical weapons. It is like radiation. It might be there for a long time and you wouldn’t want to visit again. It turns the town of Salisbury, which our tour guide in 2012 called “God’s own country” along with all of Wiltshire, into Love Canal — or even Chernobyl.

How To End Putin’s Dictatorship:
Frankly I think that is shocking. I would not call Putin and congratulate him on anything right about now. You cannot allow the use of chemical weapons in modern day societies especially in time of peace. That is an absolute all by itself. It has to be dealt with, not ignored. It is the most paranoid piece of news I have heard in a long, long time. In a way it is more fearful than 9/11. It is worse than terrorism. The contamination is invisible and you cannot know how to protect yourself. It can work when bombs are not there at all, killing people silently and even months or years later like nuclear radiation.
There are two ways to end the Putin dictatorship — the fast way and the slow way. You are talking about the slow way, the development of the middle class. The fast way would be to topple the dictator. Of course I don’t see the US taking that on either. They always have to take half measures.
Gary thinks it sounds like a novel, but wouldn’t it be weird if a game or a trick was going on. The British kick out the Russians. They break off diplomatic relations. May cancels Trump’s trip to Britain. At the same time Trump invites Putin to Washington. If I were the Russians I would be suspicious of a trick.
Russia is a subject of the upcoming Cheops Books LLC thriller, Unlocking Trinity.

Americans Can Go After The Russians:
Here it doesn’t take Trump or the Congress doing as much. Individuals and individual businesses can go after the Russians. All you have to do is bring a court case against the Russians or a particular Russian. If the Salisbury incident had occurred in the US — God forbid! and I can’t imagine it! — then locals who lived in the town could sue the Russians or the Russian government. The court could attach Russian property in the US to pay for the damages. This is what has discouraged Russians from buying as much property here to begin with.
Cheops Books LLC will publish Unlocking Trinity, the Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel about Stalin and Russia during World War 2.

Crackdown On The Russians:
I am forwarding an article from National Review that Gary read to me last night about the Russians. This says that Cameron when he was PM was trying to get rid of anonymous real estate investments by Russians in London. Then he resigned. The article claims that May has not continued in this direction. The article insists this is why you have so many vacant houses in London — the Russians own them. And these Russians are the Russian elite who have profited under Putin, Putin’s “team” if you will.
The article also says that the former KGB, the Russian intelligence forces, are stronger and bigger than in Soviet times and have become semi-independent of Putin. They act on their own. The article implies that there might be a “rising star” in the intelligence service who might succeed Putin someday or even overthrow him. And the intelligence service was what carried out the Salisbury attack which I deeply resent since we visited Salisbury in 2012.
This joint exercise at the North Pole is exactly what I mean. Do exercises anywhere. As long as you have a show of force the Russians will get it. The Russian navy in particular is no good.

Russia And The Nerve Agent:
Where you get the idea that dysfunctional countries have all this power I have no idea except that it makes a good story. First you think North Korea is a threat. Now you think Russia is a threat, maybe China too. Russia is at the foot of the west, the same position it occupied one hundred years ago during WW1 and the Russian Revolution. (It was even at the foot of the west before that during the time of the czars when Peter the Great imitated Holland and other European countries when he built St. Petersburg).
Russia was the country that suffered the most during WW1 and WW2, hardly a position that would make it a threat. It has never had much of an economy, and its people were all too recently freed from serfdom. The powers that created the world wars were the leading powers, and are still the leading powers such as the US, England, Japan, Germany, etc. Hardly surprising. (Germany, by the way, is the KEY to making Russia actually work. Historically this has been true since before the time of Peter the Great. )
The Russians don’t have the power to do much of anything at all. The real danger — and it actually happened one hundred years ago — is that if you put pressure on the farce that is the Russian government it will implode and cause chaos within Russia and a tanks in the streets the way you did in the early 1990s after the fall of the Soviet Union. You will have a civil war that will rock Eastern Europe and cause chaos that will affect western Europe. This is what the western powers are trying to avoid.
The Russians would NEVER shoot a missile at America. It is doubtful if their technology is up to it, but even if it is, they know it would spell the end of their country. Beating America into space is laughable and hardly worth mentioning. If America is not pursuing the space station it is because they don’t want to. Private individuals such as Jeff Bezos are doing it here instead. Russia in WW2 showed how their army didn’t hold together in Berlin and fought itself. Stalin tried to make his generals compete with each other, etc — totally stupid. The only reason they got that far was because of American aid.
This nerve agent was supposedly something that was stockpiled during World War 2 and never used. After the war you were supposed to destroy your reserves of it. The Russians claimed that they had gotten rid of all of it — ha! They obviously kept the stockpile. This is an attack on Britain with war grade chemical weapons and should be treated as such. Such things should NEVER be permitted, and this is a flagrant violation of the rule that should not be allowed to get out of hand.
Even if the Americans don’t participate, the British navy should sail past St. Petersburg, Russia and warn the Russians.
Russia and the Russian Dictator Stalin played an important part in the upcoming Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel Unlocking Trinity.

Is May Right In Blaming The Russian Government?
It depends what you think of as the “Russian government”. Is the government just Putin? Or does it include the top generals and other influential people like the Mayor of Moscow? This is like asking if the Nazi government was just Hitler or did it include Himmler, too? The historic answer with the Nazis was that the government became increasingly departmentalized as the war went on and in Hitler lost control of many things going on. No one knows exactly how the Russian government works. But it is speculated that Putin is just the “show” figure who seems to be in charge, but there are several men underneath him who have their own interests to pursue. So the “rogue elements” are indeed part of the real government of Russia. So May is right in blaming the “government”.

On The Road Again By Cheops Books LLC: Salisbury
What on earth is going on here? It is two days later, Friday, March 16, when I finally read this breaking news from Europe about the Skripal poisoning in Salisbury. Cheops Books LLC visited Salisbury, England in 2012. There is a photo on the refrigerator right now snapped in front of Salisbury Cathedral. It seems like so many terrorist like things have occurred all over Europe since we last visited in 2015. We have asked our local Russian expert. He says that just because it was an attack by Russians doesn’t mean it was ordered by Putin. Putin is not in charge of everything that goes on in his government. But what good does imposing sanctions do? Attacks of all sorts just go on and on. Inevitably you realize that the West has been propping up the Putin government so that they are not faced with chaos in Eastern Europe that could affect Western Europe.
But is also raises the question of travel in Europe. It just does not seem safe anymore. It especially is disillusioning when somebody attacks a site that you personally have visited. That brings home the level of danger like nothing else can. Cheops Books LLC is getting ready to publish Salisbury Affair, the second volume of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War novels. Big scenes occur at Salisbury Cathedral which is pictured on the cover of the thriller. Perhaps we should include a footnote or afterword in the novel that discusses this decisive event.

Questions To Be Discussed In Paris Peace Plot:
I’m not even sure the Titanic was the “accident” with the greatest long term consequences even in terms of “ship accidents” but I would have to think about that one in Paris Peace Plot. Wireless may have become compulsory on all vessels. The Lusitania had it, and it didn’t do them any good three years later after the Titanic. The First Lord of the Admiralty, Churchill, never sent the ships to escort the Lusitania into port safely no matter how many times Captain Turner called him in Paris Peace Plot. Churchill was off in Paris. The Lusitania may have had more lifeboats than the Titanic but they became largely useless because of the extreme list of the ship in Paris Peace Plot. The Titanic may have promoted water tight compartments, but the Lusitania sank in fifteen minutes anyway because of the torpedo and the second mysterious explosions in Paris Peace Plot. Also the Lusitania was really an older ship than the Titanic and had been sailing already for the better part of 10 years just like the Lusitania‘s sister ship, the Mauretania.
