“Flightradar24 data showed that some US military helicopters were flying, in different occasions, over the North Stream pipes’ incident took place, close to the Bornholm island at the beginning of September”. This is the beginning of an article published by Almayadeen about the Pipelines sabotage.
American Helicopter around Bornholm island
“At the beginning of this month” – the article continues – “a helicopter Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk of the US Navy sealed for hours and for several consecutive days, particularly the 1,2 and 3 of September, around the damaged pipelines’ location in the Baltic Sea, next to Bornholm,”.
Flightradar24 showed the overlook of the area by a “non-identified aircraft”, however “the aircraft’s 24-bit ICAO code in the description allows to determine the model, which is the Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk of the United States Army”. The mentioned aircraft came from Danzig.
Finally, “the 10th and 19th of September US helicopters flied over other North Stream pipelines while others remained on the incident area for hours both between the 24th and the 25th of September”. Obviously they could not be Russian aircrafts, since this is NATO airspace, closely surveilled.
Disinformation and collective psychosis
It is useless to stress something obvious, by repeating that the pipeline was not sabotaged by Moscow, but on the contrary from other easily identifying geopolitical actors (we have written about them in different articles before). It remains nonetheless the huge disinformation about the issue, in part due to the subordination to the unbreakable transatlantic ties, in parts because of the NATO propaganda machine, which uses newspapers, journalists and experts for its purposes.
To understand how this mechanism works it would be of interest to read what John Laughland writes in the article published on the Ron Paul Institute website by the title “The Americans made it”: “In his extraordinary book, The psychology of totalitarianism, Flemish psychologist Mathias Desmet explains how the collective psychosis can lead people to lose their critical spirit”.
“By this purpose, he mentions a famous experiment where it is possible to make a person state that a diagram line has the same length ^of another one, which is in reality longer, if seven or eight actors come to the same conclusion before him”.
Such “arguments are applied to the actual collective psychosis about Russia. For years and decades, we were overwhelmed by horror stories about Russia, obviously with an increasing intensity after the Ukraine’s invasion. Now we have come to the point in which entire sections of medias, and their own governments, are believing in things that are simply impossible. The last example is the alleged (but now made clear) sabotage of the North Stream pipelines”
Ghosts on Europe’s horizons
The article goes on giving details of the many reasons that prove the United States are the responsible of the attack on one side, and giving those stating why it cannot be attributed to Russia (who wants to read the full articles can access it here).
Interesting it is also a commentary of The Spectator about the sabotage of the pipeline, with the title “Europe’s descent in the de-industrialization”
“The rapid economic collapse that Great Britain is facing” – writes the British outlet – “is simply an accelerated version of what Europe will go through; unsustainable loans to finance the gap between high energy prices and what the families can actually afford”.
“With the sabotage of the North Stream pipeline, there is no more way out. Europe cannot physically import Russian gas: prices will remain high until Europe will not reach an higher energetic capacity, which could require years”. “What could be the outcome? High energy costs will make European production less competitive. European producers will be forced to stand higher energetic costs by increasing prices and consumers will find products coming from countries with normal energy prices more convenient. The only logical European answer to the threat of a spread de-industrialization is the increase of tariffs. This is the only way to break even the prices between more expensive European goods and cheaper foreign ones, artificially supporting the European production. This strategy will lower some workplaces’ standers in the manufacturing sector”.
Economic crisis and new blockades (BRICS)
The British outlet predicts an economic crisis similar to the one of 1929. It is only one of the many blurred predictable scenarios, among whom some are less hard.
On what The Spectator predicts, always if this may be realistic, there is a huge question mark: Will the US allow Europe to raise Toll duties on their products? Moreover, after they showed a stronger control over the Old Continent? Questions that are waiting for answers if this scenario will come true.
But let’s go to the conclusion of the article: “ In the 30’s, Europe fell in an economic black hole. Its economy fell apart and the whole trade with the rest of the world followed. Europe closed itself starting by putting trade barriers to get an apparent economic stability. This was a classic case of what the economists used to cal “composition error”: what was good for Europe was bad for the world economy and since Europe was part of the world economy it was also bad for Europe itself. This is how the world fell into depression”.
“Could the same thing happen today ?” wonders the writer, ending by saying that yes, it could happen. Such a depression could TRASCINARE GIU also the American economy, which “already fragile, will fall down”. And with this one, the wolrd would follow.
“A pivotal difference is that today a rival economic block exists that could stay isolated from these dynamics, emerging BRICS+ : Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Argentina – with Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. Since the beginning of the war in the Ukraine, the BRICS countries have strengthen commercial and financial ties, welcoming new members”.
“It seems that the goal of these economies is to get the most far away from the West. If the succeed – and it seems it could happen – they could avoid the depression. The North Stream sabotage could be the moment in which the future historians will set the end of the Western dominion”.
