If you have a small plot of land with some trees... are you still allowed to cut them down and fire up the old wood stove? (I know in Australia you're not allowed)
If you can then just buy your own forest.
Well, the US navy is corpse-camping in the area, so if the pipeline is repaired it will just be blown up again.Between Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Norway there is a huge industrial base for offshore work. Major oil fields in the North Sea, off Norway, and huge numbers of offshore windmills. I’d bet a lot of money that as soon as news broke of the damage to the pipelines companies started planning for repairs. It takes time to get material and equipment together, but when moneys no object (which in the face of the coming winter it shouldn’t be) it can be done. A far more crippling blow would be to destroy control and pumping systems. Pipe is comparatively east to roll, lay, and weld.
Michael Yon predicts catastrophe for Europe stemming from the sabatoge. Any truth to that idea will be found in how long it takes Germany to get the lines operational again. If the ball is rolling, there is hope. If they drag their feet or submit to US/NATO pressure to not repair the pipelines then it’s over.

This book keeps coming to mind:Germany has few natural resources, so most goods + energy need to be imported and turned into products sold with a profit.
So Germany is heavily relying on international supply chains.
Plan to destroy the German industry and prevent the country from regaining sovereignty and disable EU as a competitor.
1) Lay havoc in the middle east
2) Instruct NGOs for refugees to invade Europe (especially Germany), increased labor cost through social welfare system
3) (COVID) disrupt international supply chains for manufactured goods
4) Use Russian-Ukrainin war to seperate energy supply / colloboration between west and east europe
5) Enforce disruption
It's not quite winter, so it's feasible for repairs to be completed by end of the October.The pipeline storage was even bigger than I thought. Now official estimates hold it will take until Sunday (3 more days away) before all the gas is finally released from the pipeline. The pipeline was holding millions of pounds of cubic gas. Not sure how Germany is going to survive this.
No, it isn't.
A submarine pipeline is not a submarine cable and I'm afraid it won't be repairable this year, which was the intent of this attack.
I was under the impression that it had to be repaired fast, otherwise the seawater will corrode the tubes/components so they're beyond rescue? So then you would need to lay need pipes all together. I'm willing to bet it will never be fixed as the situation stands now! It might be BS about the corrosion, but if they destroyed it on purpose they're not gonna let anyone repair it anytime soon.
I don't know if the demand from Germany after losing about 58 percent of their gas supply can be met by north sea gas. Probably their looking at gas rationing this winter. https://www.brookings.edu/blog/orde...-gas-crisis-will-cause-jitters-across-europe/
This article is published by Financial Times and I stopped reading here:
But Habeck is in a hurry, and has a strong pragmatic streak. (this is MSM blah blah)
He has no "pragmatic streak", he is just a corrupt idiot who should be hung from the nearest tree.
Recently he declared that he earns "super much money", because he only does what his whisperers tell him.
