He blamed Kremlin for the death of a former Russian spy who was poisoned by radioactive material.

Now, Boris Berezovsky himself is dead.

And police are searching his London-area home for possible chemical, radiological or biological evidence.

    While we are self destructively obsessed with interventions in Syria & Iran after being mauled by Iraq & Afghan disasters, new military ties and alliance is being forged between China & Russia.

    No, apparently not. But comments about an old nation that existed during the cold war are blocked.

    CNN, can you find a different program to filter comments? I hate having to play the guessing game of figuring out which word was a "bad word" and eventually breaking up the original comment into several smaller dumbed down comments.

    New alliances and power centers are emerging but we continue to stick to the same failed foreign policy paradigms.
