Well, hey. Let’s just rub some sandpaper on the forehead of what’s turning out to be a very unstable leader with 6,000 nuclear weapons. This is pretty much exactly what NATO and the EU did in response to the purported “sabotage” of the Nordstream pipelines. These guys think it was Russia that broke their own money train. That’s be smart wouldn’t it? Putin had already threatened to cut off sales to western Europe. Why break his own pipeline? Sending a message? Okay, he’s out of control but that doesn’t explain self-sabotage.It looks more and more that the leftover neo-cons in the U.S. and in Europe are a bit testy for a fight.
