Nord Stream Explosion Removes the Chance of Separate German-Russian Peace

By supplying German industries with gas Russia held a tiny amount of leverage over Berlin since it could theoretically switch off the valve. It was a tiny amount of leverage since nobody had ever witnessed Russia actually do such a thing despite decades of financial, economic, diplomatic, political, propaganda, and moral war against her by Berlin and its Washington overlord.

When a month ago Russia actually went ahead and switched off Nord Stream gas it boosted its leverage. By carrying out the threat it demonstrated the credibility of said threat, while still retaining the ability to restore supplies. Its leverage proposition was “We can restore your gas the moment we reach a modicum of peace.”

By destroying Nord Stream the “mystery” explosions have removed Russian ability to make that offer, and have removed Russian leverage with Germany.

The explosion also removes popular pressure on Berlin from below. If there is no Nord Stream then there also can not be protest to open Nord Stream by freezing proles.

The explosion also removes a piece of infrastructure that the Imperial Capital has been obsessed with for years. Obsessions that led it to enact sanctions against entities of its own “ally” (vassal). Obsession that was out of all proportion to Nord Stream’s actual significance or prospects of German-Russian peace.

That is to say, I believe the chances of German-Russian rapprochement were always zero. But that did not stop Washington from traditionally hugely overreacting to the possibility and zeroing in on Nord Stream as the potential catalyst. Its final destruction will have caused a deluge of satisfaction and merriment in DC. (Never underestimate the drive of DC apparatchiks to create feel-good moments for themselves.)

And because the pipeline was inactive anyway the costs associated with blowing it up are minimal. Blow up an active pipe and you risk turning a vassal against you. But having succeeded in making the pipe into an object of shame that Berlin must apologize for ever having built, delivering the explosive coup de grace carries little risk.

    The US is a ruthless enemy.

      Just like mining Nicaraguan harbors. Then we bribed them not to complain about it.

      Read the details at Monkeywerxus.com. The US government in action. Terrorizing it’s enemies since 1861.

    Since March, Germany wanted to stop buying natural gas from Russia; and Russia wanted to stop selling natural gas to Germany. But they couldn’t bring themselves to making an actual decision —now someone made the decision for them.

    Now can we get down to business ?

    • Oscar Peterson

      Russia did not want to stop selling gas to Germany, and, all things being equal, Germany didn’t want to have to find expensive alternatives to cheap Russian gas.

      What are you talking about?

      It was the threat that Russia and Germany would somehow end-run the empire and reestablish the gas link that led the US and/or its proxy, Poland, to take this action.

      Now, one question is how efficiently and on what timeline Russia can shift production to Asia and whether the price cap scheme can ultimately suborn India and second-tier Asian energy consumers. And the other is what effect higher-cost energy will have on Germany and the EU and over what timeframe.

      And what is the “business” that we should now get down to?

        A price cap scheme on Russian oil would fail if Russia put up any resistance (which is why it is so dangerous for Russia lol). If Russia withholds supply to any country participating in the scheme, oil prices would skyrocket and never mind the USA, but 3rd party players like India would capitulate almost instantly. It doesn’t have to be anything personal, just pass a law in Russia saying “no commodities sales of any kind to any country or entity participating in a cap”

        In fact Europe pretty much gave up on the idea of a price cap for now.

        If I were Russia, I would make a show of sending over a repair team to NS1/2 ASAP, just to put the West on the spot.

        Westerners correctly point out that Russia could still sell gas to N Europe without NS1/2, they could do so through the old pipelines and pay transit fees to Ukraine. But those same westerners do not see the idiocy of claiming Russia would actually do this to itself on purpose.

    How is this not a serious escalation? It is rather ominous.

    Meanwhile, large numbers of Polish armored vehicles are being moved by train to the border with Kaliningrad Oblast, and large flatbed truck convoys transporting armored vehicles move through Estonia in the direction of the Russian border. When will the hammer fall? Because it appears to be coming…

  • Traveller

    State terror by USA, directed against Germany. The ‘western democracies’ will self-destruct.
    Russians don’t need to worry much.

  • anon

    Well… they could always repair it… because that’s what they do all the time to energy infrastructure…. (and how they design them.. you know …to be repaired)..

    Usually it’s called maintenance.. but we now call it agit-prop…

  • Not so

    Not true. Russia didn’t switch off Nord Stream One and didn’t ask for a modicum of peace. Siemens cannot repair the turbines and Russia would start Nord Stream Two as soon as Germany opens the valve, even without any modicum of peace.

      Thanks buddy for that detail. I haven’t been able to follow this one as closely as I might have done before the war.

  • Dianthus

    I am not convinced yet that it was USA. It is to easy to do that and also bc of their drills a little while ago. It can be Russia, so Putin can say Hé I have not blown up the pipe and that he cannot do nothing anymore so the pressure is of his back also or a third party that wants that USA and Russia blame each other and I can see this also as good news bc if the Elite:

    The Committee of 300
    https://www.pdfdrive.com/the-conspirators-hierarchy-the-committee-of-300-d158690778.html

    has all for sure in their pockets, then blowing up is a sign of weakness and that they do not trust it and have it NOT all in their pockets?

    Look this Committee is NO joke. Is almost 190 years old and is the cause of at least 90% of all chaos on this planet. Just read the first 20-25 pages or so and look then back outside… This is how they operate and nothing is what is seems with those crazy people.

    Nord Stream AG is a consortium of mega corps (which is 50% owned by Gazprom international headquartered in NATO stronghold Amsterdam), all WEF connected including a Netherlands state energy company, a French/Belgium and German energy giant. The Germany company is owned by BASF (the largest chemical manufacturer in the world). The French company is partially owned by Black Rock .

    I’m sure they are insured

    They shut down nord stream 1 end of august , never turned it back on. Said take Nord 2 or nothing!

    The new pipeline came on line an d boom

  • Idefix

    “Separate”. With an “a”.

  • Arraya

    Nord stream is like 800 miles long ., They built it in 5 years. That’s like 12 miles a month.

    The explosions did not ‘destroy’ the pipelines. They put them out of commission for idk a few weeks or so depending on how motivated they are to fix it.

    Nord 2 was never in operation. 1 was actually shut down.

    I’m assuming they can fix it.

    You have militant groups in Africa etc that take shots at oil wells . It cost money but it’s not the end of the world . The owners of the well don’t give up the oil business, throwing up their hands crying. No leverage lost, just some money ,

  • Arraya

    Lloyd’s of London does terror attack insurance for big oil . Perhaps Nord Steam AG should look into it.

  • Arraya

    Also , if I was “the west” and I wanted to throw a monkey wrench in their plans, I would have just taken out 2. I mean it’s not like they are down forever.

    The protestors were very specific in wanting 2 turned on. So I would have just bombed 2. And then send protestors out to demand 1 be turned on

  • The Enforcer

    You’re dumb, Arraya.

    • Arraya

      I’ve never seen the indie media crowd so upset a pipeline got blown up. It’s comical to me A pipeline owned by some of the largest companies in the world, BlackRock, monarchs etc.

      Whomever blew it up surely knew what the smooth brain alt media crowd would say.

      As an aside, If the scamdemic never hit prices would have spiked in 2020 instead of 2021. The started going parabolic in April of 21. Soon as the demand destruction iof the lockdowns was drawing down

      August 24 2021 Bloomberg – “Russia is pumping a lot less natural gas to Europe all of a sudden — and it is not clear why”

      Price spiked in Sept/Oct 2021. Nord 2 complete in Sept 2021

      Perfect timing !

    Now how it should be written.

    The racist Jewish supremacist global Judeo Nazi satanic slave empire dictatorship believes the Nord Stream explosion removes the chance of a separate European German-Russian peace with the ability to restore gas to Germany and Europe in tatters.

    It was virtually certain the German, Italian, French, Zio Nazi puppet governments, all of Europe etc., governments would fall if Nord Stream 2 was not activated, therefore delivering the explosive coup de grace carries little risk for the Jewish supremacist Judeo Nazi empire compared to certain defeat for the empire.

    By supplying German industries with gas Russia held a tiny amount of leverage over Berlin since it could theoretically switch off the valve. It was a tiny amount of leverage since nobody had ever witnessed Russia actually do such a thing despite decades of financial, economic, diplomatic, political, propaganda, and moral war against her by Berlin and its Jewish supremacist Washington overlord.

    When a month ago Russia actually went ahead and switched off Nord Stream gas it boosted its leverage. By carrying out the threat it demonstrated the credibility of said threat, while still retaining the ability to restore supplies. Its leverage proposition was “We can restore your gas the moment we reach a modicum of peace.”

    By destroying Nord Stream, with the “mystery” explosions the empire has removed the Russian ability to make that offer, and has removed Russian leverage with Europe and Germany.

    The racist Jewish supremacist global Judeo Nazi satanic slave empire dictatorship also believes the explosion also removes popular pressure on Berlin and Brussels from below for regime change. If there is no Nord Stream then there also cannot be protests and revolts to open Nord Stream by freezing proles (slaves).

    The explosion also removes a piece of infrastructure that the Israeli Imperial Capital has been obsessed with for years. Obsessions that led it to order its USSA slaves to enact sanctions against entities of its own “allies” (slave vassals) in Europe.

    The empire believes the chances of European- German-Russian rapprochement is now zero. The final destruction of Nord Stream will have caused a deluge of satisfaction and merriment in DC. and the capital of the Jewish supremacist Judeo Nazi empire Israel. (Never underestimate the drive of DC and Israeli apparatchiks to create feel-good moments for themselves.)

    Now the Empire believes with the German military mobilized to crush any public protests, with the assistance of NATO (American forces in Europe) and the empires full power of the Jewish supremacist Nazi propaganda machine, and the Mossad, that its occupation puppet governments will be able to remain in power even if there is a total economic collapse and the deaths of millions perhaps tens of millions.

    This is exactly what the racist Jewish supremacist global Judeo Nazi satanic slave empire dictatorship did with Yagoda (google Stalin’s Jews Y Net news), in the Soviet Union, exterminating over 66 million from the initial overthrow of the Czar until World War 2.
