Just remember as you read this post that any analysis of the sabotage does not prove the guilt of any party. When you want to prosecute anyone for murder, you must prove three things, Means, motive, and opportunity. That is what we will be looking for today. In order to eliminate most of the countries of the world, we will start with means. Few countries would be physically capable of damaging the two pipelines. The only country with the means would be Germany, Great Britain, France, the United States, Russia, and China.
Next, we will move on to motive and we can cut the number or the number of countries that had the opportunity, Surely we can rule out Germany. Losing Nord Stream pipelines will worsen the predicted energy shortage citizens will endure in the middle of winter. We can also rule out Russia because they could have just shut off the pipelines if they wanted to. They will not be able to repair the pipeline until summer and at a huge cost. Great Britain was greatly affected by the damage to the pipeline.
That leaves France, China, and the United States with only one opportunity to be addressed. China has not had any ships in the area because it would have caused an international incident. Also, they are allied with Russia and therefore they would have no incentive to blow up the pipelines. Likewise, France has had no ships in the area.
Thousands of people in Gera in Germany against Olaf Scholz's policy and the explosion of energy and gas prices. They demand an end to sanctions on Russia and the reopening of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. Demonstrations also in other German cities but EU media censors them. pic.twitter.com/dmTMLY11jn

So, who does that leave us with? The United States. Remember, this is all circumstantial and in no way proves guilt. There is no question that this was a terroristic act and the pipelines were targeted. This does make the United States a suspect. We have the means. The motive could simply be to ensure that the European Union does not go weak on the Russian sanctions. It will also give Biden an excuse to send more of our energy overseas as he did with oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, including two shipments to China.
The thing we need to ask ourselves is would Joe Biden order the bombing of the pipelines? Would the same man who has loosed the hounds of hell in massively overkill raids bomb another country’s pipelines? I’m not sure that is the case, but Biden has done many things I did not think him capable of. I can have my doubts, but I can’t rule it out entirely.
First, the US became the number one exporter of liquified natural gas to Europe once Russia cut off the flow. German dependence on US LNG is a carrot to keep German in the sanction alliance. With winter approaching and German unrest on the rise, the State Department would have been concerned the Germans would go wobbly, reduce sanctions, cut off arms to Ukraine, and beg Putin for energy. The loss of the Nord Stream pipelines eliminates that path to renewed gas imports to Germany.
Second, the Biden family has long been tangled up in natural gas and Ukraine. Hunter Biden was on the board of Ukraine’s largest natural gas company—a position that provided Ukrainian oligarchs with access to Joe Biden. Hunter, who has no experience in energy, made millions from the deal, and Ukraine got a bought-and-paid-for President of the United States.
Third, the Democrat Biden needs to stanch the popularity bleeding that threatens to kill Democrat control of Congress come November.
Operation BALTOPS 22: June 2022
Seapower magazine—the official magazine of the Navy League—reported in June on a US exercise in the Baltic Sea, directly over the spots where two massive, undersea explosions took out the Nord Stream pipeline.
And finally, we need to pay attention to the June article (https://t.co/Z0oWIzp4FT ) in Sea Power, where the Americans brag about experiments in the field of underwater drones, which they put on exercises BALTOPS 22 — just in the area of the island of Bronholm. pic.twitter.com/ZD92YkhMwa

An expeditionary detachment of US Navy ships led by the universal amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge days ago was in the Baltic Sea

I have come to no conclusion of who is responsible for this attack, but it is important that we find out and stop them in the future.
