Here is yet another story …this one from Forbes…attempting to rewrite history in a sinister way.
Or, at best, failing to understand history.
The USA wasn’t really warning Europe that it shouldn’t collaborate with Russia because of energy security.
The USA was threatening Europe that it would use NATO to sabotage the relationship between Russia and Europe because it was concerned that a strong Russia and Europe together would have threatened the US economy.
It threatened the improper global energy market structure that gives America cheaper energy than Europe.
That structure is essentially a cheat that has hurt Europe for decades.
Now the USA has probably done it again by blowing up Nord Stream.
