First of all, this occurred in relatively shallow waters, 80-110 meters in depth, completely dominated by Nato vessels. If the CIA and Howard Hughes could raise a Russian sub from ultra-deep waters in the Pacific thousands of miles from shore, do you think it’s credible that the U.S intelligence agencies don’t know who set off explosives in an area where Nato was recently conducting massive naval exercises?

It was just in June that fourteen NATO allies along with two NATO partner nations, Finland and Sweden, were participating in the exercise Baltic Operations (BALTOPS 22) with over 45 ships, more than 75 aircraft and 7,500 personnel within spitting range of the pipelines.

The lack of “public” conclusive evidence is damning. You even have a Biden confession on Twitter to the fact. It will do the Ukrainians no good when this is made public and ultimately erode European support when the winter cold bites the continent.

Pres. Biden: “If Russia invades…then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.” Reporter: “But how will you do that, exactly, since…the project is in Germany’s control?” Biden: “I promise you, we will be able to do that.”
It’s time the U.S. and Nato gave Ukraine the offensive weapons to bring the war home to Russia. There never has been a war won by a country that can only play offense.   It’s time to give Ukraine the MIGS and long-range missiles that will bring this war to Russia’s doors.  Then we can have a conversation about peace.
Unfortunately, our policy of nuclear nonproliferation has been a failure. Only the bad guys end up with Nukes like North Korea, Pakistan, and soon Iran. if Ukraine had kept its nukes, there would be no invasion by Russia. If Tawain can develop the most advanced semiconductors in the world, they could certainly make a few nuclear weapons to lob over at Beijing.  It’s time that the good guys can defend themselves without dragging the U.S into nuclear armageddon.
I am bullish on all things U.S. natural gas and pipelines. Throw in Lockheed Martin, and you have a portfolio that can survive Fed Chairman Powell.
