Explosions Destroy Nord Stream Pipelines
Sept. 27, 2022 (EIRNS)—Monday night, Sept. 26, first the submarine gas pipeline from Russia to Germany Nord Stream 2, and then Nord Stream were destroyed by explosions. Today, Radek Sikorski, the former Foreign Minister of Poland and current Member of the European Parliament, tweeted a photo of the Baltic Sea above the area of the destroyed pipelines, with the text “Thank you, U.S.A.” By way of explaining his meaning, Sikorski then retweeted a video of Joe Biden at a Feb. 7 press conference on Feb. 7: “If Russia invades, that means tanks and troops crossing the border of Ukraine, then there will no longer be a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.” A reporter asked: “How will you do that exactly, since the project is under Germany’s control?” Biden responded grinning smugly: “I promise you, we’ll be able to do it.”
Sikorski is married to American neocon Anne Applebaum, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and board member of the National Endowment for Democracy.
The terrorist attack on the pipelines significantly reduces the potential for German-Russian rapprochement and has made Poland one of the most pivotal energy hubs for Europe.
The Anglo-American masters of NATO stand to “gain” the most (in their way of thinking).
This summer’s BALTOPS exercises were reported in June in Seapower magazine to have involved “unmanned underwater vehicle mine hunting technology.” These operations were conducted in the area of the current explosions of the Nord Stream pipelines. “Experimentation was conducted off the coast of Bornholm, Denmark,” reports Seapower, “with participants from Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific, Naval Undersea Warfare Center Newport, and Mine Warfare Readiness and Effectiveness Measuring.”
