US & Norway Make War on Germany

How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline (

Fascinating article by Seymour Hersh, detailing how the US with the assistance of Norway destroyed the partly-German-owned NordStream pipelines which supported Germany’s economy. No reasonable person ever bought the obvious US lie that Russia blew up its own pipelines (instead of – umm – keeping the valves closed?). But it is surprising that the US’s partner in crime was little Norway rather than perfidious Albion.

The article also details how the bureaucrats executing this dangerous scheme were fastidious in their use of convoluted laws to avoid telling Congress they were planning an action that – but for Russian forbearance – could well have started World War III.

Over the next several meetings, the participants debated options for an attack. The Navy proposed using a newly commissioned submarine to assault the pipeline directly. The Air Force discussed dropping bombs with delayed fuses that could be set off remotely. The CIA argued that whatever was done, it would have to be covert. Everyone involved understood the stakes. “This is not kiddie stuff,” the source said. If the attack were traceable to the United States, “It’s an act of war.”

The remaining mystery is why Germany went along with this act? After all, Germany has been the main loser from the US/Norwegian act of aggression.


Why would Germany have to go along with it? According to Hersh’s reporting, this was a U.S./Norwegian operation. Norway clearly benefits from destruction of the pipeline, which competes with its oil and gas sales, and the U.S. accomplishes its barely-conscious goal of bringing peace and prosperity to the world by secretly blowing up stuff and denying responsibility.


Germany has not reacted as any nation might be expected to act when it is under attack. Remember that German companies lost their massive investment in NordStream 2 and German citizens have paid the price of industries shutting down because of high energy prices and old Germans freezing in their apartments. That is not to mention the anti-Green consequences of releasing a massive amount of methane (much worse than CO2) and requiring Germany to expand its polluting brown coal industry.

If the German government had been looking after the interests of the German people, the US/Norwegian assault would have been unacceptable. But the German government accepted this loss without a whimper. They went along.


Only because it could not be blamed on Trump have there been hardly any stories of German hardship this winter for want of heat. Imagine the endless outcry if he were somehow blamed?
