Blinken: Should Russia attempt to use energy as weapon, commit further aggression against Ukraine, US and Germany to take appropriate action

If Russia tries to use energy as a weapon or commit further aggression against Ukraine, the United States and Germany will take appropriate action, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said.

“Should Russia attempt to use energy as a weapon or commit further aggressive acts against Ukraine, we are committed and Germany is committed to taking appropriate action,” Blinken said at a press conference, following the meeting of the U.S.-Ukraine Strategic Partnership Commission in Washington on Wednesday.

He said there is a very important joint statement by the United States and Germany, which concerns Nord Stream 2, energy security and the efforts they are making to strengthen Ukraine’s position.

“We are committed to implementing that agreement. Chancellor Merkel has said publicly that Germany will do everything it can to make it very clear that Nord Stream 2 is not a substitute for the promised transit deliveries through Ukraine, and we are looking to Germany to make good on that commitment,” Blinken said.

    We all know the Krauts won’t lift a finger against Russia, this has been obvious since 2014. What is interesting, Putler was already using gas as a weapon, but after the CIA head visited Russia last week, lo and behold Putler turned the gas back on. Did the US have a word in the dwarf terrorists ear, or was he in a benevolent mood? I would hope it’s the former.

    • I would like to think the CIA director showed a short video of what the A-10’s and F-16’s could do in real time but during the Bidenov administration I would guess they got bent over and we may never know what happened. The only possible clue would be a late Friday afternoon press release about lifting some sanctions or something. Heaven forbid the US pumps their own oil and gas like we did last year when gas was only $2.09 where I am, I paid $3.99 last weekend.

    Blinken has a warped sense of humor or he’s a bit nutty or he’s on drugs. Maybe all three. Certainly, the US under the feeble Biden administration and Absurdistan, run by dumbass women and eunuchs, won’t do jack shit about mafia land. It’s already used energy as a weapon and all we heard were crickets. Any other type of aggression will be met by stern dialogue and swaths of hot CO2.
