Russian President Vladimir Putin’s army is on the ropes causing him to make the desperate move of mobilizing a large number of men to serve as cannon fodder on the front lines. Ukraine’s surprise offensive exposed the weakness of the Russian army but the nation is still armed to the teeth.
Adding to that volatile mix is the ‘sabotage’ of the Nord Stream pipeline. EU’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said: “The European Union is deeply concerned about damage to the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines that has resulted in leaks in the international waters of the Baltic Sea.
“Safety and environmental concerns are of utmost priority. These incidents are not a coincidence and affect us all. All available information indicates those leaks are the result of a deliberate act.
“We will support any investigation aimed at getting full clarity on what happened and why, and will take further steps to increase our resilience in energy security.
“Any deliberate disruption of European energy infrastructure is utterly unacceptable and will be met with a robust and united response,” he said.
Enter former President Donald Trump who offered to step in and try to mediate a peace deal of some type. Trump said:
“U.S. “Leadership” should remain “cool, calm, and dry” on the SABOTAGE of the Nord Stream Pipelines. This is a big event that should not entail a big solution, at least not yet.
“Do not make matters worse with the pipeline blowup.
“Be strategic, be smart (brilliant!), get a negotiated deal done NOW.
“The entire World is at stake.
“I will head up group???
“Everyone is talking about the big hurricane barreling into Florida, as they should be.
‘But perhaps a far more important event in the longer term was the announcement that the Nord Stream I & II Pipelines out of Russia (which I brought to the World’s attention as President when I explained how crippling reliance on it could be for Germany and other parts of Europe.
“Everybody laughed at the time, but they are not laughing anymore!) has been SABOTAGED.
“This could lead to major escalation, or War,” Trump said.
