“America should be looking to ending this war before it expands into a nuclear war, which this country has sought to avoid since the atomic age began,” writes Pat Buchanan.
Whether or not you believe that the United States was responsible for sabotaging the Nordstream pipelines, the idea that the Russians did it seems far-fetched. Buchanan goes on to wonder at the accusations placing blame on Russia, writing at Buchanan.org:
Which brings us to the sabotage of the Nord Stream I and Nord Stream II pipelines built to carry Russian natural gas across the Baltic Sea to Germany, and from there on to Central and Western Europe.
Late last month, explosions blew holes in both pipelines, preventing any renewal of Russian gas exports to Germany through the pipelines, even if Moscow decided to turn on the taps.
NATO Europe is blaming the Russians for blowing up their own pipelines. But these pipelines are a strategic asset that gives Moscow leverage over the economies of much of NATO Europe.
Putin blames the Americans and Brits for the sabotage and has called for the UN Security Council to investigate the act of “terrorism.”
Said Putin, “The sanctions were not enough for the Anglo-Saxons: They moved onto sabotage.”
But, again, though Europeans are pointing the finger at Moscow, why would Russia sabotage two pipelines it helped to construct, which give it lasting leverage over the prosperity of NATO Europe?
Why would Putin sabotage his own strategic assets?
Action Line: It does seem unlikely that Russia would destroy its own strategic assets, but no one yet knows for sure, and the world may never find out. Until then, stick with me by clicking here to sign up for my free monthly Survive & Thrive letter.
