Imperialist wars are waged to conquer lands, peoples, territories. Gangster wars are waged to remove competitors. In gangster wars you issue an obscure warning, then you smash the windows or burn the place down.

Gangster war is what you wage when you already are the boss and won’t let any outsider muscle in on your territory. For the dons in Washington, the territory can be just about everywhere, but its core is occupied Europe.

By an uncanny coincidence, Joe Biden just happens to look like a mafia boss, to talk like a mafia boss, to wear a little lopsided half smile like a mafia boss. Just watch the now famous video:

Pres. Biden: “If Russia invades…then there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2. We will bring an end to it.”

Reporter: “But how will you do that, exactly, since…the project is in Germany’s control?”

Biden: “I promise you, we will be able to do that.”

Able for sure.

It cost billions of dollars to lay the Nord Stream 2 pipeline across the Baltic Sea, from near Saint Petersburg to the port of Greifsfeld in Germany. The idea was to ensure safe natural gas supplies to Germany and other European partners by going around troublesome Ukraine, known for readiness to use its transit rights to siphon off gas for itself or blackmail clients.

Of course, Ukraine was always vehemently hostile to the project. So was the United States. And so were Poland, the three Baltic States, Finland and Sweden, all attentive to what went on in their sea.

The Baltic Sea is a nearly closed body of water, with narrow access to the Atlantic through Danish and Swedish straits. The waters near the Danish island of Bornholm where the Nord Stream pipelines were sabotaged by massive underwater explosions is under constant military surveillance by these neighbors.

“It seems completely impossible that a state actor could carry out a major naval operation in the middle of this densely monitored area without being noticed by the countless active and passive sensors of the littoral states; certainly not directly off the island of Bornholm, where Danes, Swedes and Germans have a rendezvous in monitoring the surface and undersea activities,” writes Jens Berger in the excellent German website Nachdenkseiten.

Last June, Berger reports,

“the annual NATO maneuver Baltops took place in the Baltic Sea. Under the command of the U.S. 6th Fleet, 47 warships participated in the exercise this year, including the U.S. fleet force around the helicopter carrier USS Kearsarge. Of particular significance is one particular maneuver conducted by the 6th Fleet’s Task Force 68 — a special unit for explosive ordnance disposal and underwater operations of the U.S. Marines, the very unit that would be the first address for an act of sabotage on an undersea pipeline.”

In June this year this very unit was engaged in a maneuver off the island of Bornholm, operating with unmanned underwater vehicles.

Berger considers that a major sabotage operation “could not have been carried out directly under the noses of several littoral states without anyone noticing.” But he adds this clever observation: “if you want to hide something, it is best to do so in public.”

In order to be able to attach explosive devices to a gas pipeline halfway unnoticed, one would need a plausible distraction — a reason for diving near Bornholm without immediately being suspected of committing an act of sabotage. It doesn’t even have to be directly related in time to the attacks. Modern explosive devices can, of course, be detonated remotely. So, who has been conducting such operations in the maritime area in recent weeks? As luck would have it, exactly the same task force around the USS Kearsarge was again in the sea area around Bornholm last week.

In short, during NATO maneuvers, some participant could have laid the explosives, to be blown up at a later chosen moment.

By an odd coincidence, only a few hours after the sabotage of Nord Stream 1 and 2, ceremonies began opening the new Baltic Pipe carrying gas from Norway to Denmark and Poland.

The Political Significance of the Sabotage

Due to Western sanctions against Russia, gas was not being delivered through the destroyed pipelines. However, gas inside the pipelines is leaking dangerously. The pipelines remained ready for use whenever an agreement could be reached. And the first, dramatic significance of the sabotage is that henceforth, no agreement can be reached. Nord Stream 2 would have been the key to some sort of settlement between Russia and the Europeans. The sabotage has virtually announced that the war can only intensify with no end in sight.

In Germany, the Czech Republic and some other countries, movements were beginning to grow calling for an end to the sanctions, specifically to solve the energy crisis by putting Nord Stream 2 into operation for the first time. The sabotage has thus invalidated the leading demand of potential peace movements in Germany and Europe.

This act of sabotage is above all a deliberate sabotage of any prospect of a negotiated peace in Europe. The next move from the West has been for NATO governments to call on all their citizens to leave Russia immediately. In preparation of what?

The Russians Did It

In this catastrophic situation, Western mainstream media are all wondering who could be the guilty party, and suspicion automatically fixes on… Russia. Motive? “To raise the price of gas” or “to destabilize Europe” — things that were happening anyway. Any far-fetched notion will do.


European opinion-makers are showing the result of 70 years of Americanization. Especially in Germany, but also in France and elsewhere, for decades the United States has systematically spotted up-and-coming young people, invited them to become “young leaders,” invited them to the United States, indoctrinated them in “our values” and made them feel like members of the great trans-Atlantic family. They are networked into top positions in politics and media. In recent years, great alarm is raised about alleged Russian efforts to exert “influence” in European countries, while Europeans bathe in perpetual American influence: movies, Netflix, pop culture, influence in universities, media, everywhere.

When disaster strikes Europe, it can’t be blamed on America (except for former President Donald Trump, because the American establishment despised and rejected him, so Europeans must do the same). It has to be the bad guy in the movie, Putin.

The fanatically anti-Russian former Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorsky couldn’t restrain himself and joyously greeted the massive natural-gas leaks from the destroyed pipeline with a cheerful tweet, “Thank you, USA.” But Poland was certainly also willing, and perhaps even able. So perhaps were some others in NATO-land. But they all prefer to publicly “suspect” Russia.

Officially, so far, no NATO government knows who dunnit. Or maybe they all know. Maybe this is like the famous Agatha Christie mystery on the Orient Express train, where suspicion falls on all the passengers, and are all guilty. And all united in Omerta.

  8. MotGOD says:

    You miss two obvious points – on purpose perhaps or just blinded by your loyalties:

    1. Russia faced severe penalties for failing to meet its contractual obligations to deliver gas, destroying the pipeline solves this for them: after they lose the war and are negotiating for economic mercy afterward they can whine: “Force Majeure! Not our fault!”

    2. You make a big deal about how it could note be done without detection by the many observers in the area, yet (very conveniently), blind yourself to the ONE way to do it with any issues of detection at all: The very best way to blow it up without being detected is to send explosives down the pipe.

    Just as the fact that Jews controlled the access to set the explosives that brought down the twin towers makes them the prime (actually the only suspects), the fact that Russia controls the access to send “pigs” down the pipeline with explosives makes Russia the prime suspect.

    Your lack of attention to obvious motivation and the dominate means being in the hands of the Russians destroys the pretense of objectivity in your article and renders you a mere propagandist.

    The Central Jewish Role in Orchestrating World War II in American Pravda: Understanding World War II

    War Profiteer Story

    From Yahweh to Zion

    On the PBS show 1A earlier today, hosted by Jen White, they discussed the pipeline sabotage. They blamed the Russians throughout, with no evidence. One of the experts even said she was “baffled” as to why the Russians would do this.

    They made no mention of the public threats by Biden and Nuland. They made no mention of US Navy underwater demolition exercises near the pipeline shortly before the sabotage. They made no mention of the several prior US/UK moves to sabotage peace deals between Ukraine and Russia. They made no mention of the fact that Russia had no need to blow up its multi billion dollar investment because it could shut of the gas by simply turning the tap. They made no mention that Russia would benefit from leaving the pipeline intact, since it could help motivate a peace deal. And they made no mention of Russia’s steady stream of peace overtures, all of which have been sabotaged by the West.

    So Jen White is either the most abysmally incompetent reporter on the planet, or she is a shameless propagandist for the war profiteering oligarchy, betraying her audience, journalism, the First Amendment, her country, and democracy.

    Saagar Enjetti over at Breaking Points did exactly the same thing.

    Interesting detailed positive view of the Russian military situation:

    Russia has been light on troop strength the whole time, they are thinly spread, hence the window for Ukie ‘advances’ The 300k new recruits will often take up positions at home in Russia, better-trained troops will move into Ukraine The Russian surge comes just as Ukies need to ‘regroup’ … and Russians have an advantage in winter fighting prep Russians are ready to be more aggressive in knocking out Ukraine’s basic infrastructure, like they did the other day The old Warsaw pact weapons that melded with Ukie’s armaments, are about run dry … will take some training and re-orienting for Ukies to adjust to newer weaponry War will grind on slowly while Europe’s economy collapses and more and more Europeans ask to bail out of this game Russians may well take Odessa and wrap it up

    There’s no gangsterism here,. there is a war that was launched by Russia and the Ukrainian and allied nations response.

    Pfarrer did continue with the state level fable. Discussed the sat, radar, sonar tracking and individual ship identification capabilities of USN, so apparently we’ll soon be treated to a detailed fable of “Pooten diddit”.

  30. Altai says:

    I’m struck by Blinken’s initial statement that if it were sabotage then “it’s in no one’s interest”. A typical US line of US denial would be very different. The way it was phrased suggested they were warning the perpetrator without naming them. And the organs of propaganda have mostly accepted it wasn’t the Russians (Since it would make no sense at all) and have tended to treat this as an unwelcome development.

    So given that I’m inclined to think the US didn’t do it. To my mind that only leaves Poland. It couldn’t have been Ukraine as they have neither the access to the area nor the tools. Additionally the Denmark-Poland pipeline for Norwegian natural gas opened just hours later. And Poland had been very proactive in harassing the building of NS2 with it’s military.

    Der Spiegel has reported that experts suggest 3 simultaneous blasts equivalent to 500KG of TNT each were used.

    The Poles have previously done unilateral things to try to push this from a proxy war into something more including ones that Blinken himself has had to humiliatingly refute such as publicly announcing it was going to give stocks of it’s own Soviet era aircraft to Ukraine causing a mini-crisis or Lithuania trying to do a land blockade of rail and road transit to Kaliningrad that once again, the West, the EU this time, had to humiliatingly refute in public and try to defuse the situation. Poland and the baltics are in essence trying to get the West to fight Russia for them just like the US neocons have got Ukraine to fight it for them. Proxy war inception.

    The only other alternative is that this is some kind of 4d chess move to have the US get away with blowing up NS2 by making it seem like maybe the Poles did it (Or rather, did it unilaterally) so they can have their cake and eat it too without escalating things too much and boiling the frog too quickly. They want as much as possible for others to pay in blood and soil in it’s war on Russia.

    God, I wish.

    But Putin believes – very understandably – that the Jews who are celebrated, honoured, revered, protected and effectively worshipped across the deranged West no matter how badly they behave or what unspeakable anti-democratic and anti-civilisational evils they are guilty of, have somehow found a way to make themselves untouchable, and even invisible, to most people – especially to White people. This is of course completely correct. As Putin – also very understandably – doesn’t have either the time or the interest to try to work out the causes of this particular form of White insanity, he simply takes the view that the Jews are just an unimportant sub-group of mad Westerners – and therefore will eventually be included in the same inevitable fate of all collapsing nations – whatever that fate is to be, and whenever and however it arrives. But since he has very cleverly and determinedly ensured that the Jews in Russia do not have a fraction of the political or economic power which they have in Europe and the USA, that is something else which he simply doesn’t have to worry about.

    Waiting for or expecting Putin to do anything specifically about the Jewish problem is akin to hoping that the corrupt, senile, White-hating cretin in the White House will one day this week announce that he’s stepping down from office as he can’t stand the lies anymore – and also closing down the Democrat Party on his last day in the West Wing.

They can never be secure though, because, although they have taken control of the non-White world through the past remnants of empire and the present useful tools of third-world bribery and corruption, they can never feel safe, or free. This is because they KNOW that Whites alone, until they are destroyed and disappear forever, will always have the power to… umm…”resurrect”… as it were (just as someone else once did) – and then reorganise, re-establish – and at last, come after them with the long-overdue torches, pitchforks – and ropes.

    You have to look at America’s policies, laws, and political behaviors on a case-by-case basis to avoid the trap of despair.

    I did so in one case, the distribution of American health care. The short-sightedness, arrogance, viciousness, ineptitude, and sheer disregard for basic human decency exhibited by both government and the medical lobbies were staggering.

    I’m very confident that a close examination of America’s internal and external policies, at least some of them, will reveal behaviors hardly different from the Mafia, the Nazis, or the Bolsheviks, at least in degree.

    America’s supremacy in Madison Avenue slickness and the relative sedating prosperity of many of its citizens, and its immunity from foreign invasion by a ticked-off adversary, keeps the American brutality machine going.

    Good point for someone that has no clue how an inspection “pig” works. Nord Stream pipeline working pressure is 220 bar (Just try to squeeze it into a pipeline at 220 atmospheres, it probably will end in Vladivostok) . On the other hand, to move a “pig” on a natural gas system, the pig manufacturers recommend to open the vent to allow the pipeline to reach atmospheric pressure; which means that Gazprom had to empty both pipelines, vent millions of cubic meters of gas to send a pig with 700 kg of TNT to carry out a self-inflicted damage.

    Contrary to what is reported by Western presstitutes, Russia did not “organize a draft.” It was a call-up of reservists with prior military experience. It’s no different than in the US. When you volunteer it is at least a 6-year commitment. Even if you are in the “inactive” reserves, you can be recalled to active duty any time that the president declares a national emergency. You could be “separated” from active duty several years ago, but you are not “discharged” until your commitment period is over.

    There is no way that Russia would have blown up their own pipeline when all they had to do was shut off the flow of gas to Europe if they wanted to do that. It is highly probable, far more than any other country, that the USA did this or were involved in it and in that case were in charge of it. According to what I have heard, researchers will get the answer who did it. The huge explosion will have parts of the explosive device(s) on the seabed and these can be retrieved and the country the explosive device came from can be determined from that. That is what former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter says. There may be other ways too. Both Russia and Europe (as well as the USA) have satellites that take pictures of earth 24 hours a day.

    Russia and Germany should jointly form a team to go to where the explosion took place and gather the evidence. The USA and other European countries should be invited as observers if they want to participate also.

    It is indeed. As is the Chinese airliner which last year on a routine internal flight suddenly took a wholly inexplicable and impossible-to-recover-from vertical dive into remote mountainsides in southern China – with eye-witnesses and at least one short and blurry video clip – over 200 dead. I never heard whether the one-of-two black boxes they eventually recovered from the impact site eventually provided any useful information – nor whether it was established the pilot was an undiagnosed lunatic (just like, supposedly, the pilot of the GermanWings flight some years ago who did exactly the same).

    I don’t buy suicide-via-airliner (for the Chinese OR the German guy) and I never did.

    The problem isn’t Omerta but Verboten.

    Omerta is when those involved willingly remain silent to serve the cause. They are part of the club and have something to gain from the silence. Gangsters will always act like gangsters.

    The problem is the Verboten-ness of our culture. Even those who suspect the truth, like Diane Johnstone, cannot name the obvious: US is ruled by Jews.

    Johnstone talks about how Europeans have been Americanized. More accurate assessment would be that both Europeans and white Americans have been Zionized. It’s not so much US dictating EU but Jews dictating US and EU(and Canada and Australia).

    Biden is less gangster than a front, puppet, cuck idiot, just like men like Lindsay Graham. And for all his bluster, Trump just took it up the ass from the same people and blamed china-china-china.
    The New China Syndrome: Jews kicks your ass, but you want to look tough, so you talk big about how China kicked your behind and you’re ready to rumble. Why? Because you’re too afraid of Jews to push back and say, “If you do that again, I’ll kick YOUR ass!”

    We must expect gangsters to practice Omerta, but the problem is even truth-seekers in the media, even most of alternative media, practive Verboten, or the Jew Taboo.

    When US was ruled by Anglo-Americans, there was a lot of gangster-like activity. But it was okay to expose and criticize Wasp abuses and evil, and indeed many idealistic Wasps did just that. (CucKen Burns certainly have no problem with blaming Anglo-American for its various ‘sins’.)
    So, even if there was omerta among Wasp gangsters, there was no Verboten on exposing Wasp evil.

    But today, not only are Jews and their shills practicing Omerta on their dirty deeds but even those who should be speaking the truth practice Verboten on the truth of Jewish Power and its evil abuses.

    There is a pattern of behavior.

    Covid as possible bio-weapon. Attack on Nordstream.

    Covid was blamed on China, and the Nordstream attacks are blamed on Russia.

    Why would China release covid on itself? Why would Russia blow up its own pipes?

    “First of all, the pipes mean nothing if there isn’t gas flowing through them.” There would be gas flowing thru them except the USA and Europe stole billions of dollars in Russian assets and declared sanctions on Russia designed to cripple them, then the Europeans said they would not pay for the gas. The gas wasn’t flowing because Europe said they wouldn’t pay for it. The pipes mean nothing if they’re blown up and years of work and many billions of dollars may have all been lost. Shutting gas off costs nothing because it can easily be turned back on when Europe is ready to pay for the gas again.

    “Secondly, cutting off the gas via valves unites NATO, blowing it up causes suspicion, distrust and disunity.” As I already stated above, it is Europe that shut off the gas flow by refusing to pay for it.
    Russia wants to sell NATO gas. NATO appears very united, very eager to make the ridiculous claim like you that Russia blew up two gas pipelines that cost many billions of dollars and years to build when all they had to do was shut off the gas flow that would cost nothing if they wanted to do that (which they don’t).

    Any distrust and unity that exists is well deserved. This was a disgusting act and a stab in Germany’s back by an ally or allies. There should be distrust and unity because President Biden and Victoria Nuland (behind the coup in Ukraine in 2014) both publicly stated the USA would shut the pipelines down. Biden said this even after the journalist asking the question asked how they would do that since it was a Russian / German pipeline. Then, we also have Poland’s former Foreign Minister Sikorski publicly thanking the USA on Twitter for blowing up the pipelines, posting “Thank you, USA” with a picture of the exploded pipeline.

    The USA and its allies are incompetent big mouths, so we know a lot already. We may not have all the information needed for proof but we have a lot of evidence and it points to the USA. Some people might say we have enough information since the leaders of the USA publicly stated they would shut down the pipeline and a Poland’s former foreign minister thanked the USA for blowing up the pipelines.

    Those using the term “the Jew.S.A.” could also be Americans resentful that their government and country are run by Jews, which make up 2% of the American population. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Attorney General Merrick Garland, United States Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas and Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland are all Jews and the US government’s foreign policy has been guided by Jewish and Israeli interests for decades. There are certainly more than a few Americans unhappy with that. And you would have to be as senile as President Biden to be unaware the hatred many Jews still have for Germans today, making it that much easier for these Jews to be on board with blowing up a Russian – German gas pipeline. Jews also have much resentment towards Russians.

Think about that one. “Full Spectrum Dominance” was the battlecry of the Neocon, former Trotskyites and students of Herr Strauss at the Rottenfeller crime clan endowed, created and still supported University of Chicago.

    Tonight “S” made a mistake. He used a moderately common term of American idiomatic slang. That one was a dead giveaway. My take is that he may well reside in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. That neighborhood is flooded with Russian Jewish “refugees”, most of whom are Khazarian and their leaders, Khazarian Mafiya. He is funded by some intel agency to besmirch Russia and most particularly its military and government.

    Trouble for me began immediately as I sought to post the comment. Got one of those “error” messages, but found a way to override that and get it on anyway. Then, as I attempted to get back on the thread another message came up that insisted that I was “timed out”. It is a near certainty that the gentleman from Germany who runs the site, Bernhard is his name, had nothing to do with that cut-off.

    This may be in line with Blinken’s recent notice/warning that all Americans who support Russia would soon be in deep doo-doo. It’s quite possible that the threat was carried out against my “outing” Mr. “S”.

    Russia finally cut off the gas after billions of dollars in sanctions were levied against them, stealing billions of dollars from them and Europe said they would not pay Russia in Rubles. Yes, they do need the pipeline (or they would not have spent billions of dollars and years work to build it) and Germany needs the pipeline too.

    Old quotes from Attila Kotanyi. I’m sure I posted half of it here before, but it seems to fit the topic.

    “‘Protection” is the key word in the Garment Center racket. The process is as follows: One day you receive a visit from a gentleman who kindly offers to ‘protect’ you. If you are really naïve, you ask, ‘Protection against what?’ ” (Groueff & Lapierre, The Gangsters of New York.)

    We should develop a little glossary of detourned words. I propose that “neighborhood” should often be read gangland. Similarly, social organization = protection. Society = racket. Culture = conditioning. Leisure activity = protected crime. Education = premeditation.
