Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, Pulitzer Prize Winner for his reportage on the infamous My Lai Massacre during the Vietnam War, has just broken the colossal true story of how America took out Russia’s Nord Stream I & II LNG Pipelines. Hersh’s account now affords all concerned to more clearly see and understand what the real underpinnings are of the rough-and-tumble geo-political world in which we all, somehow, are now captives of, beholden to, or, in one way or another, feel the brunt of the driving forces behind the commission of the war in Ukraine.

The world is constantly victimized by the habitual chronic lies of the American Government, representatives of NATO itself, and newspapers of note, like the New York Times and Washington Post, who essentially, so far, have blown off what Hersh has had to report about the sabotage by the U.S.-led BALTOPS 22 Task Force as it pertains to the on-going War in Ukraine; not to mention the many sordid, outrageous geo-political events that precipitated, and since have followed, the proxy U.S., NATO and Ukrainian forces fighting against Russias Special Military Operation (SMO) in Eastern Ukraine. It’s a classic textbook case of dissimilitude from beginning to end.

Before this earth-shattering expose by Hersh broke in the international press, the mysterious cause, or cloak and dagger identity/identities of the terrorist saboteurs who perpetrated the BALTOPS 22 SABOTAGE OF RUSSIAS NORD STREAM 1 & 2 PIPELINES hadn’t yet, to date, been adequately investigated by any responsible world body; especially regarding what serious punitive economic and political consequences, sanctions or military actions must now be taken by the UN Security Council and other responsible world authorities.

Like Hersh, this writer himself has spent the past several months trying to crack the same nut, researching and writing about the outrageous ABCs of the crisis in Ukraine that led up to America and its NATO allies obvious need to commit such a serious and damnable Act of War against Russia.

Seymour has now gone the long mile to help all of us fill in the dots of a most distasteful, jarring reality check of what, when push comes to shove, his revelations mean in the rough and tough world of hardball geo-politics in which we all, collectively, now find ourselves engulfed.

There exists so much geo-political fellatio that underlies the sabotage of Russia’s Nord Stream 1 & 2 Pipelines that still needs much more elaboration and erudition of what lies behind this latest travesty against human life.

Its time to probe deeper below the surface at the real ugly hose job if there ever was one, that has been perpetrated on the world since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine that one could say the entire world received right in the good old derriere over this scandalous sabotage. It personifies the endless stream of falsities that underlie America’s long-standing culpable, malevolent military and corporate involvement in the complicated, Machiavellian politics of Ukraine’s modern political history and the war itself.

It behooves the world at this point to know more about the long-standing dirty role America’s CIA and its black ops divisions have long since played in Ukraine’s rough and-tumble geo-political turmoil, going back decades, with the hands-on involvement of every succeeding U.S. Democratic President and their administrations, since the 1990s, and even long before, going back to at least the administrations of George Herbert & George W. Bush, and forward to Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and the present-administration of Joe Biden.

American politicians have a lot of bloody fingerprints smeared all over the evidence of who among them did what to whom that has led up to not only the inception of the war in Ukraine that continues unabated, and now, the case of this pipeline sabotage itself.

The still muddied, unanswered question in the Western Press is how much of the primary cause of the war is due to Russia’s and the West’s long-standing corporate-financial entanglements and power struggles that have existed in the world’s corporate energy sector, especially since the 1990s and early 2000s, between America’s big energy players who ever strive to greedily-corner for themselves whatever the world’s natural energy resources market (water, coal, oil, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera); and now, seeks to take advantage of the coming harsh Northern winter, by seizing total control of the world’s LNG energy market and then sell it back to Germany and Europe at four times the price at which Russia was originally prepared to sell it before its Nord Stream Pipelines 1 & 2 were sabotaged.

Not to mention that this single, ignorant act of the war so far may end up becoming one of the war’s most monumentally-stupid errors that very well may destroy the economies of Western and Eastern Europe and lead to even further colossal political dissension, possibly even leading to yet another civil war or world war somewhere else, like that which kicked off WWI.

America and NATO’s misadventures in Ukraine and the Baltic Sea remind this writer of Agatha Christies, And Then There Were None.

One Little, Two Little, Three Little Indians

It’s now clear the United States, NATO, and their allies, in which they operate in the dark inner sanctums of the twisted, contorted minds of their military-corporate Dark State keepers and handlers, are somehow mixed up to their necks in the under-handed ways the war in Ukraine has progressed from the get-go to cover up America and the Western World’s always cut-throat international business dealings; and now the attempted regime change and final overthrow of Russia, as one of the three remaining big empires left in the world.

Once Russia is finished with as an empire, China no doubt will be America’s next targeted focus. It’s One Little, Two Little, Three littleIndians.all over again, until only One Little Indian -America –is left. Or so America hopes!

Excerpted here now is a chapter from this writer’s earlier writings in December 2022 on the BALTOP AFFAIR that offers the reader yet a different spin and takes on Hersh’s revelations.

It’s a Whodunnit Case of Sloppy Fellatio Logic from Start to Finish

There are so many sordid, unsolved whodunnits of this war so far; the outrageous sabotage of the Nord Stream Pipelines at the top of the whodunnit list. To see it in a different light requires a bit of portmanteau wordplay with the term fellatio (i.e. fallacy), as it often is used to describe sloppy logic, especially the kind of fallacious political logic that continues to raise its ugly head among those who possess an unquenchable thirst for fallacious thinking that keeps them doing such dumb things as listening to mainstream corporate news, following the short-sighted wisdom of the governments think tanks, Pentagon strategists, arms merchants advisors and the like.

Especially when they know the answers to whatever the whodunnit arguments are in the West’s corporate press, specifically about the sabotage of the Nord Stream Pipelines, amount to nothing more than a lot of bogus suppositions based upon fallacious arguments that, to put it bluntly, even fools know suck when it comes to knowing the real criminals who committed this heinous sabotage are those sitting right beside you in the next comfy, easy chair. Subterfuge and Denial are everywhere in the war climate that now has totally permeated the world.

The Smoking Guns Abound, Yet It’s All Quiet on the UN and Corporate News Front

Whoevers bloody hands and fingerprints remain smeared all over this clandestine act of sabotage, whatever insipid investigation so far has been pursued by the United Nations outrageously have excluded Russia, the owner of the actual Nord Stream pipelines, from even participating in the investigations themselves. It’s pathetic. The silence is deafening!

Of course, by now, an enormous brouhaha would have already been made in the U.N. about any other international investigation of similar magnitude and circumstances and, at the very least, already would have resulted in the United Nations’ immediate stinging censure, if not military action, taken against whatever countries were responsible, and still are involved in such an outlandish, unprecedented-aggressive act of corporate terrorism of the most bald-faced kind; that, in any other circumstance, would have immediately sparked a war in and of itself. But, of course, that is, if the war already underway in Ukraine hadn’t already been deviously used as cover to hide all traces of the bloody fingerprints of whatever high-level Western corporate-military-political criminals were involved.

The sabotage of Nord Streams 1 & 2 Pipelines, that essentially all but eliminated, at present, Russia as the chief fossil fuel supplier to Germany and Europe, unquestionably, was planned by the biggest of corporate, military, and political interests at the highest levels in the West, no doubt well in advance of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

The question is what came first, the Chicken or the Egg! Was it the West’s constant goading aggravations and provocations of Russia and its Empire, or was it Russia’s invasion of Ukraine that set off the whole war? What about the West’s bombing of Russia’s land bridge to Crimea? Is that not yet another fundamental war provocation against Russia by the West? Both aggressive acts are tantamount to Acts of War that have long tails that well proceed the war in Ukraine, stretching all the way back to the U.S.-led Maidan coup in 2014 and even long before to at least 2004, and longer back still to the year. But who is really listening? The lights are on but is anyone minding the store?

Still, other existing bloody fingerprints of unparalleled aggression by the West, NATO, and the US against Russia, of which we all now are too well aware, thanks to Seymour Hersh, can be seen in the composition of the Baltic Naval Strike Force (BaltOps 22), that was headed by the USS Kearsarge, an amphibious, special ops vessel, that led this strike forces enormous flotilla of ships and personnel and logistics, not to mention the enormous amount of logistical planning that would have been required to occur long before Russias invasion in February 2022.

At the time of the sabotage of Russia’s Nord Stream 1 & 2 pipelines, the USS Kearsarge was part of a U.S. Naval Forces Europe-Africa so-called exercise, executed by Naval Striking Forces Europe and Naval Striking and Support NATO that included 14 NATO Allies, two NATO partner nations, more than 75 aircraft, 7000 personnel, in June 2022 that included anti-submarine, mine-clearing operations, explosive ordinance disposal, and unmanned underwater personnel recovery training exercises aboard a submarine. Clearly, no small undertaking that would have demanded a high degree of pre-planning!

Yet the world is all but tone-deaf, dumb, and blind to what has gone on in the war before now and has been willing to believe that this Naval Task Force, at the time of the sabotage of the Nord Stream I & 2 Pipelines, just happened to be directly over the area when the pipelines sabotage is known to have created enormous upwellings of methane gas (Sea Power

But, if the U.S., NATO, and BaltOps22 had had nothing to do with the sabotage of Nord Stream, why then did Rodek Sikorski, a member of the European Parliament, a key figure in the U.S.-backed 2014 coup of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, following the sabotage operation, post on Twitter a photo of the methane-blasted region of the Baltic Sea showing a furiously-churned upwelling of bubbling methane gas at that location, with the cryptic three-word caption, THANK YOU, USA.

Or why, again, if this was just an innocent note that referred to something entirely different and unrelated, was it then that the Twitter note also was quickly removed after Poland’s Foreign Minister seconded Sikorski’s affirmation, or what the U.S. Ambassador to the EU, Gordon Sondland, already knowingly meant when he warned, well in advance, We have not deployed the full set of tools that could significantly undermine, if not outright stop, the Nord Stream Project (Reuters, Nov 13, 2018).

Then again, there was that incident back in 2018, when Richard Greenwell, the U.S. Ambassador to Germany, repeatedly sent threatening letters to German companies working on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, warning them, Companies involved in Russian energy exports are something that could prompt significant risks (Bold am Sontag, Jan. 13th, 2019)

Or yet again, what did U.S. President Biden imply, during a February 2022 state visit to Germany, before Russia had even invaded Ukraine, when, during a press conference, Biden threatened: The United States is able to shut down Nord Stream 2 in the Baltic Sea if Russia invades Ukraine. Yet, when a reporter at that press conference repeatedly pressed Biden, “But how would you do that?” President Biden would only smugly smile and repeat what certainly sounded like a thinly-veiled threat of a pre-ordained given when he replied several more times, “I promise you we will be able to do that.”

Something, clearly, Is Rotten in Denmark!, as Shakespeare would say if he were here. But does anyone really care at this point? And so it goes……
