Update 9/28 Bernard of Moon of Alabama has a treasure trove of clues
Yesterday’s attack on the Nord Stream system is not unprecedented:
professional hog groomer @bidetmarxman – 15:51 UTC · Sep 27, 2022In 2015, the annual routine underwater survey of the Nord Stream 1 pipelines came across a remote-operated vehicle rigged with explosives right next to one of the lines in Swedish waters. The umbilical cable had been cut. The drone’s national origin was never disclosed.
In 2015 Pipeline Journal reported:
The Swedish military has successfully cleared a remotely operated vehicle (drone) rigged with explosives found near Line 2 of the Nord Stream Natural Gas offshore pipeline system. The vehicle was discovered during a routine survey operation as part of the annual integrity assessment of the Nord Stream pipeline. Since it was within the Swedish Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) approximately 120 km away from the island of Gotland, the Swedes called on their armed forces to remove and ultimately disarm the object.
The national identity of the drone has not been verified so far, as many countries use Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) of similar construction, [Jesper Stolpe, Swedish Armed Forces spokesman,] said.
To destroy a sub-sea pipeline requires more than an ROV/drone-delivered shaped charge.
Javier Blas @JavierBlas – 15:18 UTC · Sep 27, 2022How strong is a Nord Stream pipe? Quite!
The steel pipe itself has a wall of 4.1 centimeters (1.6 inches), and it’s coated with another 6-11 cm of steel-reinforced concrete. Each section of the pipe weighs 11 tonnes, which goes to 24-25 tonnes after the concrete is applied.
It wasn’t earthquakes that destroyed the pipelines. These were several well-targeted and massive explosions:
A Swedish seismologist said on Tuesday he was certain the seismic activity detected at the site of the Nord Stream pipeline gas leaks in the Baltic Sea was caused by explosions and not earthquakes or landslides. Bjorn Lund, the seismologist at the Swedish National Seismic Network at Uppsala University, said seismic data gathered by him and Nordic colleagues showed that the explosions took place in the water and not in the rock under the seabed.
The targeted explosions were not small:
Dagny Taggart @DagnyTaggart963 – 15:56 UTC · Sep 27, 2022Swedish seismologists from Lund University noted that “at least 100 kg of TNT (perhaps more) were used to destroy the pipelines.”

Dirk Pohlmann’s excellent documentary submarine deceptions end with the murder of Swedish premier Olof Palme. Investigative TV journalism like this does not get to the airwaves anymore, in fact, co/producing German broadcaster ZDF re-edited the film without consulting the author. Here’s the original from ARTE.
Pay close attention to the players involved in the hysteria that went on for years, US, UK, and rouge Swedish military circles. I remember it well from my time in Denmark, and the choc felt at the assassination of Olof Palme. One can compare it to the loss of JFK, without hyperbole.
REAGAN’S SECRET WAR
Ronald Reagan’s secret war of covert ops to undermine the Soviet Union was exposed for the first time, with expert witnesses and footage never seen before – 30 years before the NSA scandal…
While his inauguration in 1981, Ronald Reagan redefined the U.S. Cold War strategy: The best defense is a good offense, was his motto. Especially the “Deception Operation Committee” worked tirelessly to undermine the faltering Soviet Union. Gas pipelines were sabotaged with computer chips smuggled in, causing the biggest non-nuclear explosion in history. Air and sea maneuvers were conducted off the Russian coast in order to demonstrate strength and technical superiority while intimidating and embarrassing the Soviet counterpart.
The film examines the importance and impact of US covert ops under Reagan through the expert testimony of high-placed eyewitnesses and never-seen-before footage. We see up close how the Reagan administration pulled no punches, even when it came to compromising the sovereignty of democratic nations. A fatal development that finds its echo thirty years later in the NSA surveillance scandal.
First footage shows gas leaks in Nord Stream 1 and 2, as a 200m circle of gas escapes pipes
Norwegian Armed forces have released the first footage of gas leaks within Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea.
From Moon of Alabama’s Bernard
Just yesterday I laid out how the U.S. is winning its war on Europe’s industries and people.
That war, hidden behind the U.S.-created Ukraine crisis, is designed to destroy Europe’s manufacturing advantage compared to the U.S. It is more likely though to strengthen the economic position of China and other Asian economies.
I have argued that Germany must open the Nord Stream II pipeline which can bring Russian natural gas to Germany without crossing other countries’ territories. It must also allow Siemens to repair the defective Nord Stream I compressors. It is in fact inevitable if German’s industry is to survive.
Others have come to a similar conclusion and decided to sabotage the pipelines to make their re-opening impossible:
Three offshore lines of the Nord Stream gas pipeline system have sustained “unprecedented” damage in one day, Nord Stream AG, the operator of the network, said on Tuesday in what one German official has suggested is a “targeted attack”.
Nord Stream 2 suffered a gas leak which was then followed by a drop of pressure on Nord Stream 1. The company also said that it was impossible to estimate when the gas network system’s working capability would be restored.
The simultaneous sub-sea damage to three pipelines is obviously not an accident.
A German economy official told Tagesspiegel: “We can’t imagine a scenario that isn’t a targeted attack.”They added: “Everything speaks against a coincidence.”
biggerThe warmongers at the British Telegraph claim without any evidence or logic that Russia is the culprit:
Russian sabotage of gas supplies to Europe has been feared after three offshore lines of the Nord Stream pipeline system suffered “unprecedented” damage in a single day.
Russia has withheld gas supplies to Europe as it seeks to hit back against Western sanctions imposed for the illegal invasion of Ukraine. German newspapers reported sources saying the leaks were a result of a “targeted attack”.
As stated in yesterday’s piece the claim that Russia is withholding gas from Europe is outright false:
Nord Stream II was created to make Germany independent from pipelines running through Poland and Ukraine. Blocking it was the most stupid thing for Germany to do and thus chancellor Scholz did it.
In the following months, Poland blocked the Yamal pipeline which also brought Russian gas to Germany. Ukraine followed up by cutting off two Russian pipelines. The main compressor stations of the Nord Stream I pipeline, which the German company Siemens had built and has the maintenance contract, failed one after the other. Sanctions are prohibiting Siemens from repairing them.
It is not Russia that has blocked its gas and oil from European markets. It was the German, Polish, and Ukrainian governments that did it.
Russia would in fact be happy to sell more. Putin has recently again offered to push as much Russian gas as possible through Nord Stream II to Germany:
If Russia were to cut pipelines in the Baltic Sea it would damage those that bring Norwegian gas to Europe, not the pipelines it owns and which give it some leverage.
Russia thus surely has no plausible interest in sabotaging the Nord Stream system. Others though do have such interests. They likely want Germany to ‘stay in line with their war to Decolonize Russia. The major potential actors behind this are the U.S., the British, the Ukrainian, and the Polish government, or a mixture of those.
Geography, and the shallow depth of the Baltic Sea, seem to exclude that U.S. or British submarines did the damage. Ukraine does not have access to the Baltic Sea. Poland, which had already tried to prevent or hinder the Nord Stream II construction, is the most likely actor behind this though I doubt that it would dare to act alone.
Consider this from April 2021:
The developers of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline have accused foreign naval forces of “provocative” activity in the vicinity of construction work. The controversial pipeline is about 93 percent complete, and two Russian pipelay vessels are on station and working on the project in Danish waters.
Andrei Minin, the branch director of Gazprom-run Nord Stream 2 AG, told TASS that “foreign warships and vessels were demonstrating higher activity” near the operation, and that “such actions are provocative and can lead to gas pipeline damage.” He also accused Poland of deploying a military M-28 patrol aircraft to survey the site.
“The Polish Navy is not conducting provocative operations and has been carrying out its statutory tasks in agreement with international laws,” responded the Polish Army’s central command in a social media post. “M-28B Bryza planes regularly conduct patrol flights in the Baltic Sea region.”
Poland strongly opposes the development of Nord Stream 2, which will give Gazprom a subsea alternative route for supplying natural gas to Western European customers. At present, that gas has to pass through overland pipeline networks in Poland and Ukraine, bringing in valuable transit fees and providing both nations – which do not always have cordial relations with Russia – a measure of energy security.
Followed by this from May 2021:
Poland has reacted angrily to President Joe Biden’s decision to waive US sanctions on Nord Stream II, warning the move could threaten energy security across Central and Eastern Europe.“The information is definitely not positive from the security point of view, as we know perfectly that Nord Stream II is not only a business project – it is mostly a geopolitical project,” said Piotr Muller, a spokesman for the Polish government.
On February 7 Biden stated that he would decide if Nord Stream II opens:
After both leaders appeared to avoid mentioning the pipeline, under repeated questions from reporters at an afternoon press conference, Biden, standing next to the German chancellor said Nord Stream 2 would not move forward if Russia invades Ukraine, in a warning to Russian President Vladimir Putin of potential economic consequences.”If Russia invades, that means tanks or troops crossing the — the border of Ukraine again, then there will be — there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2,” Biden said during the press conference with Scholz, who did not go as far as Biden, but insisted the U.S. and Germany remain “absolutely united.”
On February 27 Biden sanctioned the company for owning the pipeline.
Under its current rightwing leadership, Poland has been extremely hostile to Germany. This month it even renewed is demand for war reparations from Germany, an issue that had been settled decades ago:
Poland’s top politician said Thursday that the government will seek the equivalent of some $1.3 trillion in reparations from Germany for the Nazis’ World War II invasion and occupation of his country. Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of the Law and Justice party, announced the huge claim at the release of a long-awaited report on the cost to the country of years of Nazi German occupation as it marks 83 years since the start of World War II.
Germany’s Foreign Ministry said Thursday the government’s position remains “unchanged” in that “the question of reparations is concluded.”
“Poland long ago, in 1953, waived further reparations and has repeatedly confirmed this waiver,” the ministry said in an emailed response to an Associated Press query about the new Polish report.
It is high time for the German government to wake up and to recognize that a war has been launched against its country.
And no. It is not Russia that is waging it.

BERLIN, Sept 27 (Reuters) – A seismograph on the Danish island of Bornholm twice recorded spikes representing earth tremors on Monday, the day on which the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines underwent dramatic falls in pressure, German geological research center GFZ said.
The seismograph recorded near-silence until 0003 GMT (2am local time) when there was a spike representing a tremor in the earth followed by a continuous hissing waveform. The pattern repeated itself at 1700.
European politicians and security experts have suggested that the pipeline rupture near Bornholm could have been caused by sabotage. GFZ declined to be drawn on whether the tremors recorded could have been the result of an explosion.
“There was a spike and then regular noise,” said GFZ spokesperson Josef Zens. “We cannot say if that could be gas streaming out.”

Fehmarn – Spätestens mit dem russischen Angriffskrieg auf die Ukraine, der im Februar begann, sowie der dadurch bedingten sicherheitspolitischen Zeitenwende mit den NATO-Beitrittsgesuchen Finnlands und Schwedens ist die Ostsee zu einem Aufmarschgebiet der Seestreitkräfte Russlands und der NATO geworden. Das lässt sich gut an der steigenden Zahl der Kriegsschiffe festmachen, die in den vergangenen Monaten den Fehmarnbelt passiert haben. Das gilt für russische Atom-U-Boote ebenso wie für NATO-Verbände. Am Donnerstagmorgen passierte ein Flottenverband der US-Navy Fehmarn.

On Thursday morning, a U.S. Navy fleet unit passed Fehmarn. The “USS Kearsarge” as flagship was the largest warship.

40 helicopters and fighter planes on board.
Fehmarn – At the latest with the Russian war of aggression on Ukraine, which began in February, as well as the resulting change in security policy times with the NATO membership applications of Finland and Sweden, the Baltic Sea has become a deployment area for the naval forces of Russia and NATO. This is well illustrated by the increasing number of warships that have passed through the Fehmarn Belt in recent months. This applies to Russian nuclear submarines as well as NATO formations. On Thursday morning, a U.S. Navy fleet unit passed through Fehmarn.
NATO maneuvers in the Baltic Sea
The amphibious assault ship “USS Kearsarge,” accompanied by the landing ships “USS Arlington” and “USS Gunston Hall,” was on its way west Wednesday morning. Previously, the ships were part of U.S. units participating in NATO maneuvers, calling at numerous ports in Germany, Scandinavia, and the Baltic States.
Nord Stream AG, the owner, described the breakages as “unprecedented”. The pipes were not pumping gas to Europe at the time the leaks were found amid the dispute over Russia’s war in Ukraine.
Mateusz Morawiecki, the Polish prime minister, said it was an “act of sabotage”, while his Danish counterpart Mette Frederiksen said she views the leaks as “deliberate actions”, and the Danish energy authority said any event like this was “extremely rare”.
Dramatic gas bubbles rising to the sea’s surface measure 100m in diameter and will continue for several days, the authority said.
The two pipes were damaged near the Danish island of Bornholm in the southern Baltic Sea.
The Kremlin said it could not rule out sabotage as a cause of the damage, with spokesman Dmitry Peskov describing developments as “very concerning news”.
A European security source said: “There are some indications that it is deliberate damage. You have to ask: Who would profit?”
A reading from a nearby seismograph, which records vibrations on the planet’s surface, was found to show spikes at similar times to when the losses in pressure in the pipes were first recorded, according to a German geology research center.

‘No doubt these were explosions’
Sweden’s national seismology center said its stations recorded “powerful subsea blasts” in the area where the gas leaks occurred, the latter measuring the equivalent of a magnitude-2.3 earthquake.
Bjorn Lund, a seismologist with Uppsala University who is part of Sweden’s national seismic network, told the national broadcaster SVT: “There is no doubt that these were explosions.”
He said the first was recorded in the early hours of Monday southeast of Bornholm. The latter and stronger blast on Monday evening was northeast of the island and equivalent to 100kg of dynamite.
“We know very well what an underwater blast looks like. And so in this case, there’s no doubt this is not an earthquake,” Mr. Lund said

If J.H. accepts this comment by beppe pal.
I have read and agree, share and concur with what others have written about the attacks on pipelines 1 and 2 from Russia to Germany. But know that Italy receives supplies are only by ship (for both oil and Liquefied Gas). And the Italian rulers committed suicide by accepting the total naval blockade on the Biden Diktat (but this the healthy Italian people who will pay the consequences still do not have total awareness of it).
What I mean to say is that for the pipeline attacks a certain author … writes that both Denmark and Sweden after the attacks guard the pipelines to avoid other GB Nato attacks. But isn’t Denmark and then Sweden, stubbornly, the one that has been muddling everyone for at least a month about whether to join NATO or not, and consequently surround Russia with NATO bases for a thousand kilometers almost all the way to Siberia because of the NATO hatred of Russia?
I have already got an integrative idea about such an author with the pipeline bombings. Could you guys try to do the same?
There is important speech of Putin right now online. Dedicated to the people of Russia. Very interesting.
Hope there will be translation in English. Important speech addressed to the whole world, not only for Russians.
Will surely listen, thank you.
I just put up the English translation on the Human. An epic speech which resonates in me on so many levels. The connection to the ancestors, the struggles, injustice of shelling, Odessa 2014, the plight of Germans in the past century denied this choice, I cheer for the people of Donbass, may true peace come from this.
Andrew, I put up the speech on The Human in English. My comment with the link to it is awaiting moderation. Good night from the other heartland. With deep sympathy and compassion
The West is willing to do anything to preserve this neo-colonial
system that allows it to parasitize, in essence to steal, from the world
at the expense of the power of the dollar and technological dictate, to
collect real tribute from humanity, to extract the main source of
unearned wealth, the hegemonic rent. The preservation of this rent is
their key, a genuine and absolutely self-interested motive. That is why
they are interested in total de-sovereignization. Hence their aggression
against independent states, traditional values and cultures, attempts to
undermine international efforts and integration processes, new world
currencies and centers of technological development, which are
beyond their control. For them it is essential that all countries
renounce their sovereignty in favor of the United States.
The ruling circles of some countries voluntarily agree to do so,
voluntarily agree to become vassals; others are bribed or intimidated.
And if they fail, they destroy entire countries, leaving behind
humanitarian disasters, catastrophes, ruins, millions of ruined and
shattered human fortunes, terrorist enclaves, social disaster zones,
protectorates, colonies and semi-colonies. They don’t care, as long as
they get their profits. / Vladimir Putin, Signing ceremony 9/30/2022
I’ll decorate it tomorrow but here is the Putin speech as translated by Georg and Orage https://jackheart2014.blogspot.com/2022/09/signing-ceremony-of-treaties-of.html
Gledao sam ceo Putinov govor. Mislim da je to njegov Treći istorijski govor, možda i najbolji sa veoma važnim porukama Ruskom narodu i celom svetu. Neki državnici ne mogu za ceo vek imati ni jedan istorijski govor , dok je Putin za ne punu godinu održao najmanje tri. Lekcija za udžbenike kako pravi državnik treba da bude. Na žalost u Evropi nema državnika tog kalibra . svi su gori od svojih prethodnika , i svi su pod vazalstvom Amerike. Države su im bez suvereniteta i indetiteta . Koliko će to moći izdržati bez pucanja šavova?
no negs jack…
heated debate always extracts character…my sarcasm, n salubrious comments on occasion is what
writing is about….there is no disrespect here…
if you didnt have arrows fired at u intermittently u would feel ignored.
at least u know i am notta troll.
I am slowly observing some of the other frequent posts
beppe pal accuses adair and “the italian author”…(fabio) of slithering globalist support
true or false…no idea…
but i am watching.
Thanks jack…u can always be assured of some sarcastic comment in the future.
It means i,m readin ur stuff.
If i would be a evil Russian president, instead an idiot-German-civilian, i would not detonate the Nordstream-pipelines, i would destroy those of my competitors, as, for example, the Algerian-Spanish-Medgaz-Pipeline or the Alaska Oil-Pipeline on the territory of Canada. Or i would cut the leased line from Ramstein to southern England and the US-eastcoast.
the reds are shutting down all of the lines – letting them get blown ski hi a mile down..
first to goo is elensky’s warm porta potty.. the ukis will think they a taking an extenden roataion in williston SD N a summer coachman.. tank freezes.. then thats when a glad bag comes in handy… and thats cold N Cold
The time for the Evil republic is over, the satanic USA enters into its final days of existing. These Cabals will uses any mean to hinder the hell drive for Yankees , slaving Germans and brainless Azoves and blood thirsty Jews in ISISrael all Puppet the US War mongers !
We Americans are slaves to the cabal also. We are victims like the rest of you.
From what I understand the pipeline isn’t operational because the turbine made by Seimen’s still hasn’t arrived due to sanctions. Thus the attack doesn’t really affect Russia. Yet all evidence suggests the US was involved. Meaning all they’ve succeeding in doing was piss off a fellow NATO member since Germany will have to pay more for LNG and natural gas through Poland. Stay tuned.
aha…jack…i notice u didnt/darent publish my posts…especially on ur jesus…
now heres the thing…i have noticed that u get superheated and into superman mode frequently
and ur writing is particularly fairy esoteric…(nothing wrong with elves and cinderella)…
its the mixin of the two that blends into a cauldron of mental illusions and dictatorship that i have observed.
u enjoy it jack…it obviously rocks ur boat……i think the distance to the asylum is loomin
Kevin why do you keep insisting I mess with your comments, I got nothing to do with monitoring comments on VT, I see one I don’t like on my piece I delete it but that’s it, I don’t go checking the board. Don’t you think I have enough to do? I have never deleted one of your comments and I have no idea what you’re talking about.
Even though the pipelines are Russian property the USA will control the investigation into what happened there. Kinda of like the MH17 fiasco. It seems in today’s world no tragedy, no matter how devastating, is out of bounds. Just as Biden promised Nord Stream was destroyed, and maybe with a little help from Poland and England, but basically it was the US. The fact is, just like all the others, this will go unpunished too. This tells me that Russia understands that if it retaliates the lunatics in DC will respond with nukes. The rhetoric coming from the State Department confirms that Blinken, his boss Nuland and others have itchy trigger fingers. Aside from an actual attack on Russia proper is there a point where Russia will have swallowed so much shite that she responds in kind? With the referendums over we may get an answer soon. Cie la vie
Last year a taxi driver from E Ukraine now driving taxis in Minsk Belarus told me was there when MH17 went down. He said it was shot down by a Ukrainian fighter jet and he saw it happen with his own eyes and end of story,
A side note; when Russian diplomats for example get translated into English the word they will print in english to describe what the Russians are trying to describe as “ridiculous obvious lies’: and especially “projection” (meaning to blame someone else for exactly what you have done yourself)
will usually be the english word “Cynical”
But being “cynical” is more someone repeating a phrase talking through their nose in childish sarcastic manner to an english speaker. Just a subtle observation how they stoke the russiaphobe narrative.
Former Polish Defense Minister Radek Sikorski attributed sabotage to the United States in relation to the Nord Stream–1 and Nord Stream–2 gas pipelines, through which natural gas is delivered from Russia to Germany.
“Thank you, USA (orig. Thank you, USA – approx. translator),”
Sikorsky wrote on his own Twitter account.
I have been working in the field of construction of gas pipelines on the ground for a long time. The construction of pipelines in the offshore zone is aerobatics and the most serious technologies. Most likely, the main evidence, the wreckage of the underwater vehicle with explosives were blurred by the flow of gas on a giant territory. But by the nature of the damage to the pipeline, explosives experts will be able to determine the type of explosives. Who benefits – this is clear to the child. By Sunday, the pressure should drop and it will be possible to begin a visual examination of the damage.
In addition, Russian bloggers have a huge database of evidence of the activity of the American fleet there. All departures of deck helicopters of the USA, their routes and flight numbers are recorded. And it seems to me that no one made a special secret of it. But will Europe have the courage to confirm the involvement of the US/ UK/Poland’s attitude to this terrorist act – we will see in the near future.
Hell Andrew, you got Senile Satan and Noodles Nuland on film telling you they were going to do it, I don’t need any more evidence than that
@Jack Heart: yeah, Tucker rocks! As well as T. Gabbard. Thank you for your articles! A fresh breathe for me while spending my vacations in Armenia.
I agree 100% Andrew. Jack’s been a breathe of fresh air to VT which was starting to get stale😎👍
that pipe is scrap metal… the german steel storks cooled @ 10%.. look 4 another 15 ??? last week the germans closed 7 of their eurosteel mills..
ahw – don’t see vlad reparing them lines w/o barney rubels 4 payments… then vlad shuttered the LNG in japon’ !
the commies are shuttering their gas fields – redevelope them at a later date.. the krauts ain’t gettin nada. few rotten crab legs w shrappnel mabey
Remember “Fuck the EU: from Vitchtoria Nuland in 2014 as the US was selecting who would be new Ukraine president (certainly Ukraine was not)
Not memtioned in article is how long it will take to be repaiired, (“impossible to estimate” is all)
I would guess a couple weeks to weld sections back together and a couple weeks to get there and a couple weeks to assemble all the workers, tools new pipe sections and underwater equipment to fix it.
On the surface, its really “not that big of deal” mechanically speaking.
They must of had contingency plans for ruptures or sabotage of the pipes and know exactly what needs to be done.
Question becomes if UK and USA will allow it to be fixed and if Russia will need to provide “security” for the repair job.
“Could be” Russia did it you know (I doubt it but what do I know)
A “desperate-looking” chess move that predicts reaction 5 moves in advance.
The chessmove is sacrificing a rook and a knight, for an unavoidable checkmate hid behind a wall of attacking pawns.
The rook and knight are NS1 and NS2, the wall of pawns are the countries in the EU, what is clever is that the opponent makes the really stupid move for you….so USA did it of course, but Russia “gave it to them'” as the US stupidly thinks this move to destroy the pipelines is doing something that will make them really win the game but in fact is going to screw them in the ass.
By the way, the Kearsage was in Polish ports about three weeks ago I read about it when it happened. Talk was they were going to land a contingent of US special forces into Poland, but in fact they probably picked up the underwater explosives and submersables.
Sin. Debt. Redemption.
Revolutionary War-The Battle of Red Bank, Fort Mercer was historically significant for the blow it dealt to the Hessian forces. Curator Jen Janofsky said that while the American side of the story is well told, misconceptions about Hessian soldiers persist.
“Hessians are the ones who never had their story told,” Janofsky said. “You hear lots of misinformation. People think because they were mercenaries, they were extremely aggressive and brutal towards colonists. A lot of them were just young men trying to provide for their families. We’re trying to highlight just how devastating the loss was. There was a rumor going around that the British were using them as cannon fodder.”
“Of course, if I were a prisoner, I would dream of joining… in order to not only redeem my debt to the Motherland, but also to repay it with interest,” said Yevgeny Pirogzhin, the oligarch funder of Wagner Mercenaries talking about recruiting prisoners to fight in Ukraine. Regarding those who don’t want prisoners to be recruited, Pirogzhin said: “Send your children to the front. Either private military contractors and prisoners, or [send] your children – decide for yourself.”
‘Yevgeny Prigozhin controls a system that allows him to infiltrate the internal politics of different countries, including Israel’
– David Aidelman, analyst.
A big part of them stayed in the US.
An act of utter desperation on the part of NATO, equivalent to a commander ordering the burning of his own ships at the beachhead to block retreat.
If this doesn’t wake up Europe to what’s being done to them, then they’re too brain-dead to bother with.
It is the UK (hiding behind the curtain of the US based thugs) doing what they do best. Blowing things up and blaming it on someone else! US citizens are brain-washed to believe 1776 was a great patriotic achievement. The UK has been burrowing into the USA since 1492! The Great Game continues and the citizens of the USA and EU will be the losers. All Hail The King!
why was nordstream 1 not kept in international waters.
if a us fleet armada was adjacent to the supply-line…I am sure the russians were very adjacent to the fleet!
the destruction of this line must have been war-gamed……and there are many british/american/european oil-rigs
most vulnerable to a response….etc..
Merkela and putin (speaks native german) are obviously talking to each other regularly.
Is the pipeline totally “russian” all along its length? Surely germany/eu picks up some reponsibility somewhere.
And….as usual we have poland….(50% jewish)…(((whore))) in the picture.
I think its time the germans and russians met each other again along the river and remind them of Danzig
Perhaps a better clearance of the pale of settlement is in order.
There I went into the board and found this one jammed up with one of Koneheads, I approved it. Happy? Dude I only work here. Koneheads I ain’t touching he said F%$# so let VT decide on that one
Hi Kevin and Jack
Could be whenever I use the F word a VT moderator or an AI program deletes it?
Never realized that until now.
So if Kevin or anyone replys to my comment they would all get deleted underneath the comment in a big sweep?
This is probably source of the problem, in Kevin thinking you are censoring him.
I have noticed I do get deleted alot – I dont take it personal since I aim to displease haha… but maybe its been just from the F word and never realized it.
I have F word in my YouTube stuff all the time, they never censor me and they are the censor kings.
Example here is my band the Fuckedtones…been around since 1985, the name comes from fact we are all fucked. Main members now deceased; Belushi speedball, Cancer from cigs since 11yrs old, MS from too much acid etc etc etc
