U.S. Secretary of State Blinken Says Nord Stream Explosions Are a "Tremendous Opportunity"
The US views the sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines as a “tremendous opportunity” to wean EU states off Russian energy, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told reporters on Friday (Sept. 30).
Speaking to reporters in Washington, Blinken boasted that the US is now “the leading supplier of [liquefied natural gas] to Europe.” In addition to shipping its own fuel to Europe, Blinken said that the US is working with European leaders to find ways to “decrease demand” and “speed up the transition to renewables."
“It’s a tremendous opportunity to once and for all remove the dependence on Russian energy and thus to take away from [Russian President] Vladimir Putin the weaponization of energy as a means of advancing his imperial designs,” Blinken declared.
The US likely stands to gain the most from the destruction of the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines.

🇺🇦🇺🇸The unity of NATO is under great question because of the situation in Ukraine - The Hill.
The columnist of the publication William Moloney writes that tensions in the alliance's relations are growing.
The Europeans, to their surprise, found themselves in the epicenter of the conflict between the nuclear powers.
Europe also remembers well that the position of the Americans is not known for reliability.
"Europeans remember how Biden did not consult with NATO partners before the sudden withdrawal from Afghanistan."
The crisis of energy resources is added to the existing challenges in NATO.
Brussels needs to find a way out of this situation quickly so as not to drown the economy in a "tsunami of bankruptcies."
But Europe is still waiting for the deterioration of the economic situation, protests and the upcoming winter, which will not add stability either in the EU or in NATO.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov explained that the damage to the pipelines posed a “big problem” for Russia as it had essentially lost its gas supply routes to Europe.
Both lines of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline were pumped full of gas and were prepared to deliver it to Europe at the time of the alleged explosion, said Peskov, adding that “this gas is very expensive and now it is all going up in the air.”
Peskov also noted that neither Russia nor Europe had anything to gain from the destruction of the pipelines, especially Germany, for which this incident poses a threat to the future development of its industry, as well as its profitability and competitiveness.
American LNG suppliers, on the other hand, have been making incredible profits after having multiplied their deliveries to the European continent, Peskov pointed out, adding that these companies are “very interested in maintaining these super-duper profits in the future.”
