It’s been a week since Seymour Hersh released his Substack exclusive about How America Took Out The Nord Stream Pipeline. The mainstream German press have responded with uniform scepticism. Most reports followed the example of the wire services, in leading with the blanket denials of American officials and noting that the story was well-received in Moscow
Thank God for substack. These last three years show it as a revelation in journalism. The "information superhighway" still has a few lanes open.
Bob Woodward is known to be an intellgence agency hack. His bunk comment came from higher up.
Nord Stream and COVID are similar in that both were orchestrated by officials that have no regard for the suffering of humans, and both stories are now afflicted with an epidemic of officials pretending not to know things the world can plainly see because they don’t want to deal with the fallout of their evil actions.
The "Moscow blew their own pipeline" makes exactly as much sense as "Syrian government used poison gas" story few years ago
"It looks for all the world like somebody organised two totally separate operations, involving two separately triggered pipeline attacks, and that Hersh’s source only knows about one of them."--That's a very good point.
And, perhaps, a similarity exists when it comes to the release of the novel SARS-CoV-2. It my have been done on more than one occasion in separate operations. Then, Omicron was released by a competing operator. There are, by now, persons "in the know" who may be or not may be making their knowledge known, as well as the persons "in the know" who never will say anything because they can't live with the political consequences.
Who would keep us safe if it wasn't for the benevolent leaders of these countries?
I'd call it confirmation when the "former" US Naval Intelligence ensign Woodward disputes it.
Russia would be perfectly justified in cutting our undersea cables.
Hersh has "deliberately not written about" a certain foreign intelligence agency. He had no compunction about outing Denmark and Sweden's complicity. So it is an intelligence agency for a country that is perceived differently than those countries. I have my guess based on the selectivity. And I have no political opinion about it at all. Just making an inference.
People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, and countries that rely on an expensive, vulnerable, and increasingly difficult to maintain or repair infrastructure (power grid, internet, drinking water, international supply chains, etc) shouldn't attack the infrastructure of their well-armed enemies.
On a different note, a few months ago John Carter published an essay on his substack about why America cannot win World War III. I guess we will soon find out whether he was correct. https://barsoom.substack.com/p/why-america-cant-win-world-war-iii
It seems every main newspaper and tv channel, now keeps absolutely stumm about it. (except the Berliner Zeitung). Debunking obviously did not work.
The Berliner Zeitung is often a pleasant surprise, as it is a large newspaper and read by many mainstream people (I think), but is not on the side of the regime.
What continues to amaze me is everything the government tells us that is labeled mis / dis / mal - information routinely turns out to be true right around two years after the fact. This track record runs true and straight yet every single time, this pattern repeats. I know and most everyone knows this will be flushed out in another 18 months or so. Hersh is just a little ahead of schedule but the denials and "debunking" will drive it out to the two year mark. Watch and wait. The irony is western masses continue to accept the government / MSM narratives knowing truly well it is a lie. Over and over and over they lie to us and when revealed as such, they lie again. By God I say it's time for change. Big change. Pray, plan, prepare and RESIST. (also, thank you to Eugyppius for covering these issues in the light of open, honest dialogue)
From barmy Blighty: many of us here, who haven't joined the Zelensky fan club, would like to know more about the Truss text message: 'it's done'.
Was HMG the putative second NATO partner?
Nothing would surprise me.
Boris must also have been in the loop, given his latterday Churchillian walkabouts in Kiev and the claims by Israel's Bennett and Turkey's Cavusoglu that he stymied their attempts to broker a settlement.
Does the Nordstream sabotage qualify as an act of war, in which case we are all in deep trouble?
Our media is more concerned with Rihanna's recent concert and , most welcome, Sturgeon's resignation.
When one warmonger globalist psychopath doesn’t talk to the other warmonger globalist psychopath.
Excuse the bad pun, but this story should be explosive. Once upon a time (I think), scores of impressive investigative journalists from prominent news organizations would be investigating this possibility. I think the bottom-line is that this bombing was an act of war (by the U.S. government) against Russia and actually the people of Europe who won't get natural gas to heat their homes and businesses. But America has NOT declared war against Russia. What would our country do if someone sabotaged some important part of our national infrastructure?
You don't need Congress to declare war to commit acts of war anymore .... but that's of course been the case for a while.
and there are also the train wrecks, causing a huge disaster in Ohio (and all of the Mississippi valley) . 2 more train wrecks happened this week, and a tanker caught fire in Tucson Arizona. Who is trying to kill us all? https://www.lewrockwell.com/2023/02/no_author/the-largest-environmental-disaster-in-us-history/
