Nord Stream Investigations: ‘If They Told You, They’d Have To Kill You’
Oct. 27, 2022 (EIRNS)—In a year when conclusions are trumpeted of every Russian travesty—Bucha, bombings of theaters and maternity wards, threats of nuclear attacks, etc.—with a rush to judgment and complete disdain of evidence, the Sept. 26 sabotage of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines stand out for their oh-so-careful investigation. Germany has already made clear that they simply can’t divulge any results, as evidently the social fabric could not take it. Sweden won’t even conduct a joint investigation with Germany and Denmark, as their national security would be compromised.
Yesterday, Danish Navy Commander s.g. Jens Wenzel Kristoffersen, told the New York Times: “There is a lot of secrecy still going on. The reason is simply because they have to be absolutely sure. When they have results, they have to be based on quite hard-core facts and not just speculation.” There will be no information released from Danish authorities “until they have this smoking-gun evidence.” Anything released before then “could lead to reactions which would not be helpful at this point of time.”
One can only hope that the new religion of not jumping to conclusions and not feeding speculation takes hold in Europe in general. However, the “I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you” attitude of the Nord Stream sabotage investigations points in one direction: Western countries are not to bring up certain sensitive subjects that would challenge their masters in London and Washington. That includes the financial derivatives bubble, whether their foreign reserves can be seized, how far their economies and their populations may be savaged by the destruction of supply chains of energy and food, and whether their last lifeline for energy was deliberately targeted and detonated.
