Whodunnit? – Attack on Nord stream Pipelines

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


by Mustang

On September 26, Reuters reported an unexplained gas leak from the Nord Stream Two (Russian) gas pipeline, five miles off the Danish Island of Bornholm.  The news flash that no one in America saw also reported that the German government was working with Danish authorities to discover what suddenly caused the pipeline’s pressure to plummet.  And, of course, the Danish government isn’t talking.  Nord Stream One also reported a reduced capacity.

So, then, what happened?  These two under-sea pipelines are massively constructed with steel-reinforced concrete designed to withstand the impact of anchors from large ships.  The word “indestructible” has been bantered about, but we know that nothing made by man is indestructible.  And we know that ship’s anchors didn’t cause the damage.  Again, what happened?

European leaders and Moscow say they can not rule out sabotage. Map of Nord Stream pipelines and locations of reported leaks

We don’t know.  Journalist Pepe Escobar, writing for The Cradle News, tells us that it is one of those “who done it” mysteries.  Was it Russia who tried to blow up the pipelines?  Why would Russia blow up its own pipeline?  They just turn off the valve if they don’t want Germany to receive Russian gas.  So, it doesn’t look as if Russia would do it.  And neither would Germany, particularly since it has been revealed that Russia and Germany have been engaged in secret negotiations to restart Nord Stream 1 and 2.  Denmark?  Nah.  Why would they?

But Joe Biden did make a public statement, captured by America’s ABC News on 7 February of this year, “If Russia invades … then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2.  We will bring it to an end.”

Who set the explosive charges?  America’s Eastern European puppet: Poland — at least, that’s what the bookies are saying (with CIA supervision, of course).  Plausible deniability is the key.

Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov observed that the damage to both pipelines poses a big problem for Russia.  He said, “ … this gas is very expensive, and now it is all going up into the air.” Note: Peskov revealed sabotage as the cause of the problem over any other source of damage. Peskov emphasized that neither Russia nor Europe had anything to gain from the sabotage … especially Germany.

Escobar thinks that Paul Gottfried’s explanation is the best, citing Leo Strauss and the Conservative Movement in America: A Critical Appraisal, Cambridge University Press, 2011.  Escobar explains that Leo Strauss, a German-Jew philosopher, and professor at the University of Chicago, is at the root of what became America’s Wolfowitz Doctrine (1992), which defined the United States’ mission in the post-cold war period.  “Any potential competitor to U.S. hegemony, especially ‘advanced industrial nations such as Germany and Japan, must be smashed.”

Fast forward to 2022, U.S. Secretary of State Blinken and Victoria Nuland are staunch advocates of the Strauss/Wolfowitz notion, which has found its way into the Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022.  It establishes Kyiv as a “free lunch” regarding arms control mechanisms.  The U.S. leased costly weapons to the E.U. and sent them to Ukraine.  Whatever happens on the battlefield is an E.U. problem.  Very Machiavellian, eh?

So who is behind this pipeline business?  The bookies in Nevada are betting on Biden and Blinken — with a little help from their friends, Poland — and the America CIA, of course.  Whatever it takes to separate Germany and Russia from making their deal.  Analysts argue that Germany is not the problem and Russia will not be bullied.  For nitwits inside the beltway playing with dynamite sticks, it may serve our long-term interests to realize that Russia still has nuclear teeth.  If Russia and the E.U. conclude that the United States is their “joint enemy,” Ukraine won’t be our only problem.

It might have been better had the American voter not selected Biden as their president.  After all, Biden chose Blinken, and Blinken chose Nuland, and both of those nitwits belong in a rubber room.

My friend Bunkerville predicted that the United States was on the road to war.  I think she’s right about that.  I find no comfort in it, but I think she’s right.  But that’s okay.  We Americans still have Twitter to keep us entertained.

Bunk will add a postscript to Mustang’s fine post with this:

Blinken Calls Sabotage Attacks On Nord Stream Pipelines A “Tremendous Opportunity”

Zero Hedge

He at the same time touted that the Untied States has now become “the leading supplier of LNG [liquefied natural gas] to Europe,” stressing too that the Biden administration is helping to enable European leaders to “decrease demand” and “speed up the transition to renewables.”

Tellingly, in that single section of comments while speaking alongside his Canadian counterpart, Foreign Minister Mélanie Joly, Blinken had repeated the word “opportunity” while highlighting the European energy crisis no less than three times.

Finally, we note that China state-affiliated media mouthpiece could not resist commenting on Blinken’s apparently cluelessly ironic comments, saying what much of the rest-of-the-world is perhaps thinking…
