I just read James Howard Kunstler’s blog, specifically his short piece on the United State’s evidently being the party guilty of sabotaging the Nord Stream pipelines. Here’s a link — Developing Developments – Kunstler. He references a recent and compelling analysis published by Monkey Werx — The Nord Stream 2 Pipeline Sabotage — MonkeyWerx (monkeywerxus.com) Worthy.
For the United States government to have made such a move is tough to digest, even for me, now beyond convinced of the clumsy, ignorant evil of our current national leadership. Dumb, counterproductive, destructive? Nah, none of that suffices. There isn’t even enough self-serviceable realpolitik logic in all of Henry Kissinger’s wrinkles to make such a move anything but dumbfoundingly bewildering, so much so that it will take some time to become as angry about it as it deserves. Fortunately, there are almost always unintended consequences and silver linings in most of the hurtful things the current administration does to us. We should have started closing the NATO shop a long time ago. Now it might close itself, if not in on itself, soon. I had wondered what on earth the administration might do to make their Afghanistan debacle look not so bad, and now that what-on-earth has a name — Ukraine.
