Nord-Stream 2


Uh oh:
Nord Stream is a Baltic Sea gas pipeline linking Russia directly to Germany, bypassing Ukraine. 
The Germany-favoured Nord Stream 2 plan has bitterly divided the European Union since an outline agreement with Russian gas export monopoly Gazprom was signed in September last year.




Keyword here being "Germany-favoured".

Germans hooking up directly with the Russians bypassing all the chaos, achieving beloved teutonic efficiency, making a ton of munnie.

No one is going to stop this its just too good.

Yet somehow the gas has been getting through Ukraine. Gas must be passed.

Idiots in charge of US foreign policy are mad at this... How do the vassals dare!

Teutonic industrialists are going to work to eliminate all they observe as problems with the current arrangements ... they will be successful (in material terms) as always...

MENA Community College better cancel all the courses in Hot-Tub Masturbation 101 and Advanced T&A Grabbing 102 and substitute Agronomy pronto....

If Germany stands fast against US pressure, I'll raid my piggybank and go gangbusters on Gazprom shares! If Gazprom's shares rise a hundredfold I'll make $300!

Well John they are going to make bazillions of munnie coupled with the system will run better ... that's why its going to happen for sure...

Matt, exactly. I can't see how it won't happen. Germany needs the energy, and it'll do anything to get it. Given Germany's intransigence over the Eurozone debt crisis and stagnation, much to the displeasure of the US, it looks like Berlin is going to go its own way. Germany has tried flexing its muscles in recent years but was put in its place by Washington. Having won the showdown over the Eurozone, it looks like Germany's up for a showdown with Washington over Russian energy.
