    Of course I can see the moral difference. But what's the legal difference? Maybe I want to use the women's toilets because some dodgy looking guys just went into the men's, I might not be going in to...

    Ok so they technically have a majority but it's negligible when it comes to costs. Fair enough.



    Perhaps this is why USA isn't openly admitting it, and why it's convenient to blame Russia.

    I mean, it makes no sense for USA to attack the Norway pipes, that's for sure. That would be an attack on just Germany, not Russia. Blowing up the Nord Stream is still an attack on Germany, but it...

    I think you're missing an important point here. It takes time. It's a matter of time before either Germany caves in or Russia runs out of money. It's a game of geopolitical chicken.

    It's 20 mins longer than it should be and it was made before the recent Nord Stream attacks and the annexation of Ukrainian territory, so despite it being posted just an hour ago it's already dated...

    I'd probably be inclined to agree here, though with less confidence you have. It depends if Germany are able to source alternatives, and what the economic costs of the alternatives are.

    The biggest problem between Russia and China is likely going to be Eastern Russia, including Vladivostok. This region of Russia was historically China, and Chinese immigration is happening at such a...

    They care about Nord Stream for as long as Europe is a potential customer. And they remain a potential customer. Just because Russia are attempting to balance their export markets, doesn't mean they...

    Yes. This is Russia using their leverage. When the pipe is no longer operational, that leverage is gone, handed over to Ukraine.

    Why do you think anyone will care in ten years? We've been buying gas off Russia after they annexed Crimea. When it comes to money, people are fickle, and that includes countries. The UK sells...

    I feel there's a distinct lack of knowledge as to what "leverage" means.

    If Putin has functional pipes sitting idle, he has leverage.

    I'm sorry but trans people aren't the only victims here. You're ignoring the fact that women too are victims, and in the process you're essentially blaming them for being unreasonable.

    I mean we don't seem to be talking about Biden promising they would shut down Nord Stream if Russia invaded Ukraine.

    If that isn't the most compelling piece of evidence, idk what to say.

    Please don't confuse my high confidence with certainty.



    Again, I'm not claiming proof. I'm claiming that it makes a lot more sense for USA to do this than Russia.

    A lot.

    I guess because we agree. We tend to discuss the matters we disagree on.

    That's because I'm not talking to Russians who are parroting Russian propaganda.
