The “sabotage” of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline is continuing to garner widespread international speculation, especially in light of the fact that Sweden just reported a fourth leak in the pipeline, resulting in additional methane spewing to the surface of the Baltic Sea.
The destruction is so unmistakable and so undebatable that a number of European leaders have already spoken up against the industrial destruction.
European Commission president Ursula von der Leyen asserted that “any deliberate disruption of active European energy infrastructure is unacceptable and will lead to the strongest possible response.”
Other European figures are already blaming Putin for apparently blowing up his own pipelines, despite the fact the pipelines would serve as an obvious source of revenue for his regime.
Professor Veli-Pekka Tynkkynen of the University of Helsinki declared that she could see how Russia might opt to destroy pipelines for “propaganda” against Ukraine.
“It is still difficult to say how it is technically implemented. I can also see that Russia, in its own propaganda, twists the matter so that the Ukrainian special forces are behind the act,” she mused.
However, a number of other individuals have also pointed out that other characters could be involved, especially considering the gains that various enemies of Russia would have to gain from such an explosion.
As reported by Breitbart, numerous experts are unable to reach a consensus on who or what was ultimately responsible for the leaks.
“While many authorities appear to agree that the leaks were caused by sabotage, it remains unclear who may have been behind the acts as no one has yet taken credit and who stands to gain most from an attack is a complex picture. Naturally, however, the various sides are blaming each other,” the outlet noted.
“A complex picture” indeed, the ramifications of which were spelled out by conservative radio news host Glenn Beck in a recent, chilling segment.
“It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed,” Beck warned, “this is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces.”
In other words, the explosions comprise a veritable terrorist attack and will most certainly set the world on (further) edge.
Especially with Biden at the helm.
“But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack,” Beck added.
That’s exactly right. Especially since Biden already declared he would bring “an end” to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in February.
And, Biden being Biden, the statement was recorded and video and has been trending across multiple media outlets worldwide for the past two days, if only because many are now speculating that the Democrat may well have brought “an end” to the Nord Stream 2, as promised.
But at what cost?
Per Beck, that cost could be quite severe.
“If Russia thinks we did it, they’ve already said, ‘Nukes are now on the table.’ That gives us a green light to use nukes,” Beck warned.
No doubt. As the pipeline explosions would absolutely constitute a “first strike” against Russia.
“This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and … if it isn’t played calmly by every side, this could be World War III. Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic,” Beck warned.
Considering Biden couldn’t even handle a withdrawal from Afghanistan, “catastrophic” is likely an understatement …
