Thoughts and Comments on Who Sabotaged the Russian Nord Stream 1 & 2 Pipelines!!
Something about that brings to mind this excerpt, particularly that last bit,Before suspecting the US, I would actually take a hard look at Poland.
Blowed up, blowed in, potato, potahto. The moment of sabotage has been described as an explosion in every piece of news about the incident, and at least one of them registered on seismometers. The size of the gas stream rising to the surface also indicates a very large hole. How else would you get that large a hole in a 5-inch-thick pipeline?Or its not blowed up. Waiting for the undersea photos, has anyone seen those?
The most plausible reasons for #1 that I've seen are that the pipelines aren't in use anyway and unlikely to come back into use before Putin is gone, therefore they are no use to Putin. Blowing the pipelines serves as a warning to others that Russia could blow other pipelines and infrastructure (like say the Oresund Bridge between Denmark and Sweden). It also may get Rosneft out of penalties for not flowing gas to Germany--they can't if the pipeline is inoperable. The latter one depends on the contract language, so may or may not be real.Possible actors:
1. Russia: Why would Russia destroy their biggest leverage chip with Europe?
2. Germany: No.
3. States or global actors who want to remove the temptation for Germany to get squishy on the war. <<<<------
Show me the pics of the hole. Not that I don't think its blowed up, show show the pics.Blowed up, blowed in, potato, potahto.

Wow, how did he get all that information?As I sit here with my head on a swivel after the initial SITREP broadcast discussing the findings around this issue, I am thankful that the sea of “Monkey Nation” supporters run deep around the world and that we have so many “trackers” with the ability to do what I do that I know should something hawww.monkeywerxus.com
More importantly is the shopping experience associated with the site. Arnie, what the hell is Pumpkin Brûlée body butter?Wow, how did he get all that information?
Which 'european friends' are you referring to?In my opinion, it's certainly possible the US sabotaged the pipeline. But it's not proven. However, it does makes sense in that the US would benefit in the long run by taking over the business of supplying natural gas to Europe from Russia. Our European friends got themselves into this pickle, and we're merely helping them out...maybe. The New York Times published that one of the NS2 pipeline remains functional. So it's still a confused story. But in any case, it is clearly an escalatory act by some interested party. Much more is yet to come.
Primarily the Germans. But since most of Europe has been using Russian nat gas to some degree or other, and all those pipeline are disrupted to some extent, all of Europe is faced with gas shortages and steeply rising prices. So eventually most of Europe will potentially benefit from US LNG.Which 'european friends' are you referring to?
