Purposeful destruction of another country's property and logistics, conducted in international waters 300 feet below the surface of the ocean is certainly an act of war. It is also in the sweet spot of false flag operations, needed when the real reason Washington wants a particular war is not domestically compelling or popular. Of course, many nations have admitted false flag events.
Tom Luongo writes that much of the US and British reaction to the Russian-Ukrainian war – a war the US has been part of since long before 2014 – may be about ensuring most of Europe bends the knee to Washington, rather than becoming more economically integrated with the modernizing and resource rich East.
It's been months since stumbling Joe made clear on the presidential podium that the US would end Nord Stream 2. Joe's handlers boldly insist that Germany and much of Europe buy overpriced, inefficiently shipped US product, or else face the US military destruction of a competing, lower cost, and efficient competitor. Maybe the boldness was based on something the CIA/Pentagon told Joe long ago. Badmouthing Nord Stream 2 has been common among the newer NATO members for several years. Victoria Nuland back in March of this year called Nord Stream 2 "a pile of metal on the seabed." Who knew she was so prescient?
