Hegemon USA Responsible for Taking Out Russia's Nord Stream 2 Pipelines

by Stephen Lendman

We knew it all along.

Noted investigative journalist, Seymour Hersh, exposed hegemon USA's responsibility for rendering 3 of Russia's four 4 Nord Stream gas pipelines to Germany inoperable last September.

Biden regime dirty hands were all over what clearly wasn't accidental.

It was sabotage as part of war on Russia by the empire of lies.

At the time, what happened appeared most likely to have been caused by one or more Pentagon and/or CIA Unmanned Underwater Vehicles, laden with powerful explosives with intent to permanently render Nord Stream inoperable.

According to Russia's US embassy last year:

"We note the attempts by some US legislators to put blame on Russia for the incidents that occurred on Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines."

"Perhaps, they have a better view from the top of Capitol Hill."

"But if that is the case, they must also have seen the US warships' activities at the very site of the Russian infrastructure disruption just the day before."

"Or noticed (Pentagon) drones and helicopters fly(ing) over there." 

"Or observed US navy exercises with underwater explosives that have been conducted in the same area some time ago."

"Finally, they should have recalled promises made by (the fake) Biden to 'bring an end' to the Nord Stream 2 project."

"What is obvious to us is that those who ponder about the incident (don't) ask the main question."

Cui bono?

"Who benefit)ted from the pipelines' rupture?"

"The answer is" unambiguous.

"The decades-long energy trade between Moscow and Europe long turned into an eyesore for (hegemon USA) strategists."

"Unable to offer a decent alternative to reliable and, no less importantly, cheap supplies of gas, the (empire of lies and forever wars on invented enemies) decided to 'squeeze out' Russia as a competitor using non-market methods and sanctions."

Investigative work by Hersh explained what Biden regime dark forces and their MSM co-conspirators went all-out to conceal, saying the following:

Hegemon USA's naval Diving and Salvage Center operates from the Florida panhandle.

It "train(s) highly skilled deep-water divers for decades who, once assigned to American military units worldwide, are capable of technical diving to do the good—using C4 explosives to clear harbors and beaches of debris and unexploded ordinance—as well as the bad, like blowing up foreign oil rigs, fouling intake valves for undersea power plants, destroying locks on crucial shipping canals."

"Last June, Navy divers…planted remotely triggered explosives that, three months later, destroyed three of four Nord Stream pipelines, according to a source with direct knowledge of the operational planning," Hersh explained.

Following instructions by his handlers, the fake Biden defied reality by falsely claiming that Vladimir Putin used Nord Stream pipelines "to weaponize natural gas for his political and territorial ambitions (sic)."

The White House and CIA falsely denied what Hersh discovered to be true, what was a virtual Biden regime declaration of war on Russia.

Sabotage "came after more than nine months of highly secret back and forth debate inside Washington's national security community about how to best achieve that goal."

"For much of that time, the issue was not whether to do the mission, but how to get it done with no overt clue as to who was responsible," Hersh explained.

Dominant Biden regime hardliners  agreed on wanting Nord Stream pipelines rendered inoperable by whatever means able to shut them down.

They provided income to Russia by supplying Germany and other European countries with readily available, low-cost Russian gas — in lieu of less dependable, much higher cost US LNG.

When completed, Nord Stream 2 would double the volume of low-cost Russian gas to European markets.

Dominant Biden regime hardliners were determined to prevent it by fair or foul means.

Various proposals were considered, including an assault on the pipelines by submarine or delayed action aerial bombing.

At the time, the empire of lies acknowledged that if its fingerprints were all over attacks on Nord Stream pipelines, it would be a de facto declaration of war.

CIA and National Security Agency elements jointly planned and implemented what happened.

After occurring, MSM were enlisted to treat the incident as "an unsolved mystery," Hersh explained.

Asked about it last September, interventionist Blinken called what happened "a tremendous opportunity to once and for all remove (Europe's) dependence on Russian energy."

And this from militant Russophobe, Victoria Nuland, saying:

The Biden regime "is very gratified to know that Nord Stream 2 is…a hunk of metal at the bottom of the sea."

Hegemon USA's war on Russia by hot and other means proved to be a colossal blunder.

Militarily and tactically superior to the empire of lies and forever wars on invented enemies, Moscow is slaying the made-in-the-USA, Nazi-infested Ukraine monster, along with defeating its imperial ambitions in Europe and worldwide.

Hersh explained the Biden regime's "cover story," adding:

Its "only flaw was the decision to do it."

A state of war now exists by the empire of lies against nonthreatening Russia — what hegemon USA is losing to a militarily and tactically superior invented enemy.
