The U.S. will lose far more than whatever it hoped to gain from blowing up the Nord Stream pipeline. From The Strategic Curlture Editorial Board at strategic-culture.org:
Washington is a war-criminal state par excellence along with its European Quislings.
The Hersh report is a devastating revelation of U.S. and NATO international terrorism as well as Western media complicity. It exposes the lawlessness of U.S. government, the total disregard by Washington for its so-called European allies, the supine nature of European governments, Germany in particular, and the real geopolitical reasons behind the war in Ukraine, and subsequently the shocking servility of Western media in refusing to cover what is an astounding act of criminality.
This is an explosive story in more ways than one and indeed in more ways than we can perhaps even calculate at this stage. Only one week after its publication, the fallout and reverberations continue to amplify. Such is the parlous and pathetic state of Western journalism, Hersh was obliged to publish his account on his resources, knowing that mainstream outlets would not touch it. That systematic media censorship and exposure of propaganda functioning is itself a huge scandal that will grow further. This is while the European Union sanctions and bans Russian media, even though Russian media have been vindicated by Hersh’s revelations while Western media is shown to be an utter disgrace.
On September 26, 2022, the Nord Stream pipelines were blown up. European states have since acknowledged that, albeit with muted reports. For its part, Russia has from the outset blamed Western powers for an act of terrorism. Washington initially made the preposterous claims that Russia had carried out the attacks in revenge against Europe. And Western media went along with the ridiculous ride.
The demolition of the Nord Stream pipeline will eventually lead to the dismemberment of NATO and the E.U. When the Germans acquire a leader with some courage, America’s crime of stabbing Germany in the back, and destroying their economy will have very negative results. The Germans will eventually leave NATO and kick the American occupiers out of their country. If the economic powerhouse of Europe leaves NATO, the organization will die. This is a good thing.
