Yanks now meddling in Germany's economic affairs
AdrianNTierney - 21 Dec 2019 18:05:32 (#1 of 21)

Russians meddling in European affairs are all OK, right?

SinnerBoy - 28 Dec 2019 16:42:48 (#2 of 21)

Yes. Yes, that's exactly what he said.

AlanII - 28 Dec 2019 16:56:34 (#3 of 21)

It's Ade, Sinner. Expecting comprehension is optimistic.

FleurDuMal - 28 Dec 2019 17:50:05 (#4 of 21)

Even the expectation of sanity is a bit of a stretch, with that poster.

CarlosFandango - 28 Dec 2019 18:01:58 (#5 of 21)

What are the Yanks thinking here then? What do they object to, and what do they want?

indlovubill - 28 Dec 2019 18:04:04 (#6 of 21)

What do they object to, and what do they want?

They object to Russia exporting oil and gas to what the Yanks regard as their market.

RosyLovelady - 28 Dec 2019 18:05:44 (#7 of 21)

Oh they don't want to fight, but by jingo if they do ...

Macpaddy - 28 Dec 2019 18:22:25 (#8 of 21)

It's time we shot Trump and told the Yanks to fuck off.

AdrianNTierney - 28 Dec 2019 18:38:45 (#9 of 21)

They object to Russia exporting oil and gas to what the Yanks regard as their market.

So, tell us how much of a market Germany provides to American oil and gas. If you can.

Perhaps a more informed geopolitical take on this stance would enliven and enhance your comprehension, eh?

indlovubill - 28 Dec 2019 18:53:18 (#10 of 21)

Try reading this you ignorant cunt.

The US administration plans to start exporting its new and vast gas supplies to Europe via Germany within the next four years. As doubts continue over a Russian pipeline to Germany, Washington sees a gap in the market.

AdrianNTierney - 28 Dec 2019 18:58:38 (#11 of 21)

Oh dear, billers. You conflate announced "plans" by politicians as if they have any basis in reality?

Too, too funny, eh?

indlovubill - 28 Dec 2019 19:05:53 (#12 of 21)

Maybe you didn't notice but the thread is about the meddling of politicians, try reading a little further into the article

Trump in July accused Berlin of being a "captive" of Russia due to its energy reliance and called on the country to stop work on the $11 billion (€10 billion) Russian-led Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline that is to be built under the Baltic Sea.

You should get out more often instead of locked in your bedroom playing with your ding-a-ling.

Russia's resources added to the EU's commercial power...

freedutchman - 15 Mar 2020 19:18:18 (#14 of 21)

RT = Russian Trash.

No need to make matters worse, dear Russkis as the sleazy real estate crook in the White House will deal with Europe as he pleases, claiming ad nauseum to be a "very stable genius".

In the meantime, the corona virus has spoilt the dog and pony show of the "Emperor who wears no clothes".


carterbrandon - 17 Mar 2020 14:27:02 (#15 of 21)

Nauseam, ffs. How could it possibly end in 'um', given how Latin works? Or do you think that all Latin words end in 'um', all Spanish ones end in 'o' and all Scandinavian languages consist of invoking one of these repeatedly:

frantastic - 17 Mar 2020 15:33:27 (#16 of 21)

Um, ok.

FrankieTeardrop - 17 Mar 2020 15:47:53 (#17 of 21)

Perhaps he, like I, neither know nor care how Latin works...

CarlosFandango - 17 Mar 2020 16:24:44 (#18 of 21)

Well that's Carterius Brandonium told, and no mistake.

brooklyn - 17 Mar 2020 16:53:56 (#19 of 21)

obviously, you are Spanish.

all Irish names have the good sense to begin with O.

freedutchman - 22 Mar 2020 11:24:27 (#20 of 21)

And there always is a spelling checker here, spending hours looking for one or two mistakes made by posters who like to post "content" instead of "form".

Si vis pacem para argumentum ad hominem.

Carry on nitpicking ffs, you're doing a helluva job.
