Pompeo: US Forms Coalition To Prevent Construction Of Nord Stream 2

55

The US Secretary of State gave an extensive interview to the German press. Mike Pompeo was interviewed by representatives of the Bild tabloid, which is one of the most widely read in Germany, while having a "yellow" tint.


In the interview, we also talked about Nord Stream 2. According to the head of the US Department of State, the implementation of this project "threatens Europe", as "will lead to greater dependence of the EU on Russian gas." Pompeo added that the construction of a gas pipeline along the bottom of the Baltic also poses a threat to the Ukrainian economy.

Pompeo:

We believe that this gas pipeline also threatens Ukraine. He defends Russia. This deeply worries many Germans. And we hope that Nord Stream 2 will not be completed.

Further, the US Secretary of State said that Washington today is creating "a coalition that could prevent the construction of the gas pipeline." According to Mike Pompeo, the US administration expresses hope that the German government will make a decision, including "because of what happened to Navalny."

Pompeo added that Germany "must make a decision" also because the implementation of the gas pipeline project "threatens its energy security."

Recall that earlier the German government offered Washington a deal - 1 billion euros for the construction of terminals for receiving American LNG in exchange for loyalty to the "SP-2". The very fact of such a proposal says only one thing: Germany has come to the conclusion that it is no longer capable of making decisions on its own, but is forced to take into account the opinion of the United States every time.

    US builds coalition to prevent construction of Nord Stream 2

    And after all, they practically achieved their goal ...
    Soon a year, as the work is worth.
    It is not known when it will resume. And will it even resume ...
    It seems that some kind of movement has begun, but there is no real continuation of the laying yet.

      This is the main obstacle. The United States welcomes everyone who barks and howls at Russia, but, for some reason, does not want to feed these mongrels and jackals at their own expense.

      And this is not the fourth case when haste is simply necessary.
      Europe needs gas. And at what price - let it "screw" itself. Lying under America all my life is a little pleasure.

        Burgers will be quiet. To protest against something American is politically incorrect here.
        Starting next year, the FRG government will raise a duty for the people on the fuel that will fill the vehicle, and so every subsequent years. It is done in order to "spur" the population to buy more environmentally friendly ( wassat )Vehicle. The same will happen with taxes on vehicles with internal combustion engines.

        And the increase in the price of energy for industry - this is how businessmen have other methods - they will open production in other countries.

        There will be corresponding discounts for critical (for the state - not for civilians) sectors of the industry. This has always been done and this system is unlikely to change in the future.

    US builds coalition to prevent construction of Nord Stream 2

    In other words, it requires countries to officially recognize their vassalage to the United States, and then there will be "whoever is not with us is against us." It is clear that Poles, Balts, Ukrainians will only be glad to have a chance to orally express gratitude to the owner. But more interesting is how the countries of old Europe will behave. It will be very indicative - for it will demonstrate which countries are ready to take steps on the path to political independence.

      I’ll draw you one situation, and you’ll decide for yourself who is ready and who else needs to wash.
      In the SAR on bird rights there is an American contingent of 500 people. This grouping creates inconveniences not only for the government of Syria, but also for our Russian contingent, which is at the invitation of the legitimate President of Syria. And when the VKS (Armed Forces) of the Russian Federation (how to say without swearing?) "Creates a situation where it is impossible for American troops to be on the territory of a sovereign state," so immediately everyone "will see", so immediately the countries will take care of the ways of their own independence from a weak tyrant.
      It is useless to wave a higher education diploma (even a HSE diploma) in front of the "gopniks". Here the skills of hand-to-hand combat, and, even better - short-barreled, are the best arguments.

        Well, how can I tell you, I perfectly understood the meaning of your words, but let me also outline a different situation for you - the American base at Guantanamo was in Cuba even during the Soviet era and also certainly interfered with us, but even then we did not dare to face a direct clash.
        Perhaps they compare the forecast for losses in both options and choose the smallest one. But I agree, there are a lot of questions on Syria.

    Gazprom needs to think carefully about this issue, create dummy companies and complete SP-2 and let the striped stocks bother them, they arose and went bankrupt during the construction process. But they need to be protected.
    And to warn all the Gay Europeans, there will be no SP-2, the GTS will not work - it will NOT work at all, let the Ukrainians scratch their turnips.

    US builds coalition to prevent construction of Nord Stream 2
    When the word “coalition” sounds from the Americans, for some reason the question immediately arises as to who will be bombed this time. How "SP-2" got up across their throats, hinders American business to such an extent that they are ready to crawl out of their skin, but not allow the Germans to receive additional Russian gas. Well, the Germans at first even tried to resist, pretending to be sovereignty, but then, luckily, Navalny got in the way and they happily seized on this pretext. Moreover, the cunning Merkel shifted the responsibility for the decision on the "SP-2" to the EU. If the EU says to freeze, we (the Germans) are obliged to obey even against our will. The Americans are happy and the Germans seem to be on the sidelines.

    And the most important thing. The EU cannot simply physically stop the joint venture - Gazprom's lawyers planted a dashing piggy - the project is funded 50/50, i.e. it is not only purely commercial, but you still have to throw yourself for money. which is sideways, and as a result of the freezing of the JV-2, the German Uniper and Wintershall (the gas division of the BASF concern), the Austrian OMV, the French Engie and the British-Dutch Shell will simply sue those who freeze it and the amount of the claim is under 20 billion ( costs and lost profits) laughing Go for it, and I will laugh

    if Nord Stream 2 from the Russian side would have been built not by Gazprom but by the Moscow Region, then Shoigu would have foreseen all kinds of risks right after 2014, as soon as the United States first hinted at
    sanctions of Russia and how it became clear that special. US service brazenly bugs Merkel's phone. And this
    spinelessly silent. Then it was already clear that Merkel was not independent and, if anything, she did not dare to contradict the United States. From the very beginning of construction, those Russian ships that were in the Far East and
    who would be capable, if something happened, would immediately continue construction, a prudent office
    just in case, from the very beginning, it would have surpassed them to the Baltic, they would have been prepared and construction after the American sanctions would have continued not only immediately after the imposition of the sanctions, but it would have already been completed. But it is not necessary to militarize all ministries and departments. You just need to figure out why there are so few ministries and departments in the state and business-minded people, especially when your richer economy and your state across the throat becomes a bandit from beyond Atlanta. This is a question not only that perhaps the wrong people are appointed to lead ministries, departments and companies, but also the question of why they are still sitting in these leadership chairs ...
