"Apparent Sabotage Disables Nord Stream 1 and 2 Cutting Off All Direct Gas Supply To Germany From Russia." Eugyppius Substack
There is a LOT of material in this post about the roots of this conflict. It will take time, but I believe it is free from misdirection or BS
Thank you to Peter Webster for the news tip.

Another outstanding article here, “Insane in the Ukraine” by Edward Slavsquat. MUST read.
Comment from here (@TTB) On The US’ Self Appointed Entitlement to Regime Change:
“Word out of Europe: “someone” has sabotaged the Nordstream 1 and 2 pipelines which takes them off the table as negotiating points with Putin. The Biden Administration will no doubt blame Putin without a shred of common sense behind it. Why would Putin destroy his trump card? So the US war mongers have sacrificed The Germans to keep this war going because it takes a submarine to target the pipeline and the US wants Putin gone. The plebiscite in the occupied territories will be called fraudulent by the West if it appears to go for annexation and Putin is threatening nuclear war if NATO continues shelling there after the territory is annexed. The neocon crazies at our State Dept and NATO have succeeded in creating a nuclear confrontation with no upside for Europe! Clinton and Obama created this unnecessary mess in the name of the corrupt failed policy known as “regime change” and Biden is bringing it to fruition.”

Battlefield Ukraine—a 61 Page Analysis By Michael Grandt
Now to quote from a document I received this morning and will link below, that contains way more granular historical detail than we have grown accustomed to:
I got this email today from Paul Charles Gregory, another blessing of a human:
“Please pass this on to C W Thompson and maybe to others.
"Battlefield Ukraine" is a brochure of 61 pages by Michael Grandt, which has now been translated from German. It is about the historical background to the conflict, going back to 1990.
Among other topics it addresses, very seriously, in a balanced way and with supporting details, the issues:
Did the West really promise there would be no NATO expansion eastwards?
Why was Putin’s outstretched hand to the West withdrawn?
It is available at http://docs.shortxxvids.com/battlefield_ukraine.html Click on the German cover page for the English. (The translator Howard Steen and myself have personal permission from the author.) “

Here is a quote from the text which jumped out at me as I began to read it:
“The decision of the Americans to expand NATO up to the borders of Russia was already in 1997 deemed by the historian and diplomat George F. Kennan as “the most fateful failure of American politics in the era after the Cold War.” (34)
Kennan prophesied: “This decision could be expected to inflame nationalistic, anti-west and military tendencies in Russian opinion; to have a damaging influence on the development of democracy in Russia, such that the atmosphere of the Cold War in terms of the relationship between East and West would again be created and Russian foreign policy would pivot in a direction which will be decidedly displeasing to us”. (35)
The Soviet Union felt itself deceived and henceforth saw NATO as an expansive opponent and no longer as a purely defensive coalition.”
