Biden: “If Russia invades…then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.”

Reporter: “But how will you do that, exactly, since…the project is in Germany’s control?”

Biden: “I promise you, we will be able to do that.”

This was Nordstream 1 that got sabotaged, whereas Biden was referring to Nordstream 2. And Biden was referring to putting pressure on contractors that would be necessary to construct the pipe.

It’s both pipelines that got sabotaged, and US is the only country with a clear motive to do that as well as history of such sabotage.

Ah yes, Russia bombed its own bargaining chip playing 4D chess. You are very intelligent.

I wonder who has a vested interest in making sure the EU doesn’t negotiate with Russia. I also wonder who’s been selling the EU gas at viciously inflated prices. Hmm…

It is totally Russia, you see, because USA stands with Ukraine, and Cold War, Russia bad, China bad, and le Soviet technology and must balkanise them and denazification is a lie to conquer Ukraine and totally do Western expansion!

Did I sound like NATO libs?

No, not enough hypocrisy.

Sorry for not being a true lib, I just cannot be one you know. No matter how hard I try, cannot happen.

Looks like the US Navy was around Bornholm at the very time and place of the (alleged) sabotage: https://twitter.com/AZmilitary1/status/1574758898086694912

What a coincidence.

Meanwhile German mainstream media is already spewing out theories about Russian sabotage of their own pipeline and conveniently never mentions the actual prime suspect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OS4O8rGRLf8&t=81s

It’s the US Navy. If there’s international water, they’re probably there.

And if the Russians were sabotaging it, you don’t think the US would have seen them? Or the presence of the US have would have deterred them? Presumably in your mind they were already patrolling the pipeline for security. The US has been surprisingly silent on this haven’t they?
