Hey, it took us an even 2,400 posts to get one of these, so I don't feel so bad about it.
It takes a big blog to admit when it's been wrong about something like this. It's the big story of the Ukraine/Russian war. I had decided very early on, in early March of this year - "YES" on Is the Russia/Ukraine War another piece of Infotainment?* Now, with this latest news on the sabotage** of the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines, I see how far the Potomac Regime, that is, the Deep State in "American" government has gone.
To give myself a break here, it's been the armchair general war strategy and tactics stuff that I've seen as Infotainment. To me, it was a distraction (for Americans at least) from the growing resistance movement against the Kung Flu Totalitarianism, with the Ottawa truckers winding down (and persecution of them beginning). Then there was the rah-rah support for the Ukraine, with the flags everywhere, even in Boy Scout parades.
Peak Stupidity did note, with anger, how the Feral government was sending 40,000,000,000 of grift-worthy bucks to support the NATO/Ukraine side. More egregious was that the Congressional spenders were shocked, shocked, that a Rand Paul would even think of adding on an accountability stipulation to the bill. Needless to say, they voted that shit down.
I did not realize how big the Potomac Regime's efforts to sanction and screw the Russians were until yesterday's news about the pipeline. Economic battles between powers are one thing, but the armament support and now actual sabotage of Russian infrastructure is another. If the US government wasn't directly responsible, it had to be indirectly involved. Big Uncle Sam, with those big borrowed bucks, still runs the show.
So, as far as US Deep State and Neocon involvement in the Ukraine-Russian war, which may indeed lead to a wider conflict, this IS a big story.
(OK, PS editors, you don't have to rub it in!)
* Come to think of it, going back a month before that, we also posted Anarchy in the UKraine and Peak Stupidity on the Ukraine.
** The fact that both of them, at points far away, started leaking nearly the same time - come on, there's no way it as accidental.
