Tag: Nord Stream
To date, U.S. threats to retaliate against construction of Nord Stream 2 have done nothing but irritate Europeans, who have ignored them, while furthering the Continent’s desire to escape Washington’s suffocating embrace.
The Europeans appear prepared to set whatever course the US has charted them, one away from cheaper gas sources to the more expensive LNG supplied from across the Atlantic. Given the investments already committed to receive this LNG, it seems unlikely that this course will be changed.
The thinking expressed by Perry, Groysman and Cotton reflect the height of delusion and desperation of the western technocratic elite who have been watching their carefully planned system of controls over the trans-Atlantic slip away ever since 2013.
Just like the empty threats against Chinese state oil companies for buying Iranian oil, the US knows there is a limit to who and what they can sanction without collapsing the world economy.
