I spent about ten years screaming that that gas might be cheap and yeah, a pipeline is nice but if Germany shuts down their nuclear plants, they might want a better source for energy than Russia.

No liver can take as many pints I've endured talking about that dude.

Europe has a huge energy problem. That's a given. Now, the coalition Putin/ Trump thinks that makes us weak, but the German plants will be up and running in hours if needed, and we can do with only a little. Russia forgets that they've won every time cuz they have winters but these days the Europe works together, talks no shit about China, and these days we have winter coats.
