EU regulations are to blame. We probably didn’t know that the EU would regulate the electricity markets in Europe in that way when we built our electricity grid. Nor did we know that Germany would phase out its nuclear and lignite coal power with such haste. When Germany has a surplus of electricity and we simultaneously have a deficit of electricity, German electricity companies must export electricity to us because it is the highest bidder who is considered to have the right to buy the electricity. Richest country wins.
It’s just that Germany almost never has a surplus of electricity when we have a deficit. However, the reverse often happens. And it’s just that Germany is a richer country with a higher GDP per capita.
So we have to produce electricity for Germany and Denmark and be without electricity ourselves. It is completely unacceptable! And that is why we are now faced with a partially downed electric grid in Scania this winter. This is also why governments in Sweden and Germany are ready to outbid each other with compensation for their own citizens. You see, Germany wants our electricity at any cost even if it means that we become their electricity slaves. Germany is looking out for number 1, which is Germany and Germany alone. Yes, their backwards cousines the Austrians come as number 2. After that, no one comes down to the last turtle that the earth stands on all the way down to eternity. I wonder why they are prone to horrific acts of violence historically. We know nothing about the future.
It is all about the oil and gas in Africa and a way of containing Chinese interests in the world and above all in Africa. It seems like Biden’s new strategy is to avoid a world war and it seems as if the US short term will accept high gasoline prices. The gasoline prices in the US looks like it is on its way down this winter of 2022, so I guess the US more recently have found alternative oil sources. Good for them! But Africa needs electrical energy in order to extract oil and gas and lay down pipelines.
This is also shown by Biden’s more recently mitigated Iran policy and China policy too. But what has Biden promised Erdogan to hold Sweden on the stretch bench regarding our possible Nato-entrance? Because it doesn’t look like if it is the Kremlin who is in cahoots with Turkey at this moment. Or is Erdogan’s Turkey acting on its own behalf? It is possible, but follow the money and the military industrial complex.
I will probably be back with more info on this topic.
So, Ukraine, a state by Kreml and Putin called a pseudo state, is a part of Russia? If you had your family riding in a bus in the vicinity, would you violently, with certainty of collateral damage on your own family members, attack that family because they were riding in a bus together with a corrupt bus driver? Or because there was a known right wing Nazi connection of one of the forty other passengers riding in the bus, way in the back of the bus? Is that what you do with family members in Russia?
Putin is the new Hitler!
That’s it. There is nothing more to say.
Why did he do it?
Because he could? Yes, partly. But also, maybe, because his military, his transport aircraft fleet, his helicopters among other, needs spare parts from the Ukrainian military industry, former USSR military industry. And he needs the money, i.e. the women, that lives in Ukraine for the amusement of Russian men, since he cannot get to the women in the West. Whaaat? ”Did you just say what I thought you said?” Yes I did.
What can Ukraine do?
They can perhaps move their governmental institutions away from Kiev and to the south and let the Russian tanks roll deep into Ukraine, but not let the Russian support vehicles far into their country, by attacking the support vehicles in big scale ambushes with grenade rifles. But I don’t know what the environements look like in Northern Ukraine.
They can also, under controlled forms, demolish totally the industry that can be used for Russia’s nuclear capabilities.
Why did Putin not strike Ukrainian electricity first?
The infrastructure enables rapid operation in Ukraine. The road and railway network is well developed in the country. Russia and Ukraine have the same track gauge on the railway. As far as the road network is concerned, there are 103,150 miles of paved roads and 2,200 miles of unpaved roads. The railway network covers 13,400 miles, 6,400 miles is electrified railway. The railway network is mainly well developed in central and eastern Ukraine and somewhat less developed in western Ukraine. Roads and railways goes in all directions. Economic priorities within Ukraine are basicly its industry, which is mainly located in its eastern area.
What can Ukraine expect?
We need to first look at the near time history. In 2014, Russia launched a ”humanitarian” aid convoy to eastern Ukraine. Ukraine opposed this but eventually agreed to let the aid in if it was reloaded into other vehicles before the border crossing and escorted by the Red Cross. The inspection of the Russian trucks showed that many were almost empty except for a few sacks of flour. Russia chose to drive the convoy into Ukraine without the assistance of the Red Cross and in a completely different place than the one reluctantly approved by Ukraine. This is where the interesting really begins.
After the aid convoy crossed the border, it set course for the industrial city of Luhansk in eastern Ukraine, which Russia identified as in dire need. In for example Luhansk, the trucks were unloaded again without international supervision, but did not return immediately and definitely not empty. Instead, extraction of parts for Russia’s war-critical industry began. During the time the Russian convoy spent in eastern Ukraine, machinery, parts and products were loaded from e.g. a factory in Donetsk that manufactures radar and telecommunications warfare systems, a factory that manufactures parts for some of the Russian nuclear missile systems, and the factory that is the only one in the former Soviet Union, which manufactures turbine blades for aircraft engines and engines for helicopters, and other critical components for some combat aircraft engines.
Don’t know if there is something else the Russians still needs from Ukraine. They would most likely want to control the Ukrainian energy sector and their agricultural sector in order to sell energy and crops to the West and other countries in the world.
Is Russia backed by God?
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, not at all! They’re backed by Satan. It’s Satan’s country now. We wash our hands.
Russia is like a mad dog that has grabbed your child and chews on your child’s arm at a distance of ten yards from you. As soon as you make an attempt to move towards the mad dog to grab and pull your child to safety or attack the dog, the crazy dog stops chewing and stares you in your eyes, still with its jaws around your child’s arm, clearly threatening to instantly tear your child in pieces with his jaws if you continue to move forward. So you stop, and the mad dog starts chewing on your baby’s arm again, slowly chewing your baby to death observing all your movements. Your baby will either be eaten slowly or torn to death quickly, it’s up to you, even if the procedure is resumed.
Will Russia quit after Ukraine
No! As a matter of fact, the big Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea is probably next. And then the Baltic states. And then Finland. And then Northern Sweden through Finland. And then Scania, the South end of Sweden. And then parts of Norway and Denmark. And then Romania and Bulgaria perhaps. Something like that.
Where is Putin now?
Probably his palace in Gelendzjik near the Kertj strait between Ukrainian Crimea and Russia is thought to be like an ”Eagles Nest” by Putin and FSB and GRU in a situation like this.
There are signs that the United States is changing course with its grand strategic plans. The oil dependent United States’ major political actions are often accurately interpreted in the Middle Eastern media platform Al Jazeera. The Al Jazeera news are then reflected in the Israeli news and interpreted in WIN and UWI and probably other Israeli media. The Kuwaitis seem to have realized what is going on in the grand strategic game. An article from February 6, 2022 in World Israel News is the first clear indication.
”Kuwait’s Information Ministry says Gal Gadot’s latest film shouldn’t be screened in country because she served in the IDF.”Quote WIN preamble
Biden has for a long time been increasingly withdrawing from Israel. The Israeli government officials are worried (this was the first sign).
It is not in the line of strategic thinking that the Arabs are failing cognitively. They are at least as good at strategic thinking and analysis as we are, maybe even better. It is in the field of operational and especially tactical areas that they fail cognitively. They also lack self-control to any great extent. Of course, the extremist Jihadists are not very knowledgeable. It is the more moderate Arabs, such as the Al Jazeera journalists, who can figure out grand strategy. They have many years of experience in following international media. Which extremist has that? In what country do extremists have experience in following international media at all? These people can not walk in other people’s moccasins at all. Al Jazeera is also generous with its information sharing and it is straightforward.
The reason why Biden has probably altered the US grand strategy is that the US is dependent on that the war against Iran becomes one in which the world community and above all Europe participates, and the USA is not exactly winning hearts and minds right now. That is probably slowly being rectified by Biden’s new strategic moves.
For those who are living on the back of the moon or are hearing these words at a much later moment in time I will just invoke the notion of a pending war in Europe. If you are preoccupied with the Eurovision festival please use headphones as bullets may be flying around your head.
If the Biden administration could have deceived the EU that it was Iran that wanted a war, then they would still not be able to obstruct China’s influence in the Persian Gulf, the Chinese could continue to buy oil from the oil producing countries there while the US is drained of young blood. Alternatively, there would be a war against China in any case. But it was a limited war that Biden was looking for and it would have been the opposite result in that case. Therefore, Biden probably sees it as a war against China and the United States is inevitable. And that war will not be started by the United States.
But we are not out of the woods yet. Sweden can still become a singular target for Russia. However, I think we can revise our previous position to the United States that Sweden only contributes and fights in its immediate area in the event of a major war if Biden have really changed his mind and called off the impending war against Iran. If so, we can ask what we can do for the US in the event of a war in the South China Sea. We can offer Biden our services.

I wonder why Project 2049 Institute has an odd year like 2049 in the name? You could probably figure out why they have this year in their organization’s name. Energy, oil, maritime trade, technology, the Navy, future wars, Cobalt/Nickel and other Rare earth minerals used for batteries, military armament, international politics and alliances certainly play a role there.
I believe that the US withdrawal of their support for the Israeli underwater gas pipeline to Cyprus, Greece and Europe was a trade off to Russia.
One clue is Turkey’s sudden benign approach to Armenia lately. Russia certainly has something to do with it. Biden’s administration’s statement that minor intrusions by Russia into Ukraine is not really a casus belli for a US intervention gives us a clue that the United States wants a war against Iran as soon as possible, preferably involving a UN intervention, and they are really not interested in fighting two or more different adversaries. I am thinking of Iran, Russia and China.
”But at present there are no plans to send US ground troops to defend Ukraine.”
”We want Ukraine to be able to defend itself, not go to war with Russia,” the deputy US ambassador to Sweden told Studio Ett.
First, it is hardly Ukraine that is waging war against Russia. Ukraine is defending itself against the belligerent Russia. Does Biden’s administration want Ukraine not to defend itself if only Russia would limit its military influence to eastern Ukraine? ”But we do know it’s playbook,” as Blinken said in late 2021.

EastMed pipeline said to be politically “destabilising” as well as economically and environmentally unviable.”
By David Hellerman, World Israel News
U.S. officials have notified Israel, Greece and Cyprus that Washington no longer supports a joint gas pipeline intended to supply Europe with natural gas.
Greek media reports, which broke the story, cited a U.S. “non-document” or unofficial position paper which characterized the EastMed pipeline as a “primary source of tension” and something “destabilising” the region because of Turkish opposition.
The joint pipeline, a $6.8 billion initiative, was expected to provide Europe with ten percent of its energy needs, reducing the continent’s dependence on Russian natural gas.
A widely cited Reuters report quoted a source who said, “The American side expressed to the Greek side reservations as to the rationale of the EastMed pipeline, (and) raised issues of its economic viability and environmental (issues).”
In 2018, Israel signed an agreement with Italy, Greece, and Cyprus to lay the mostly underwater gas pipeline. Running from the Israel’s Leviathan gas field to Italy via a Cypriot gas field, Crete and the Greek mainland, the EastMed pipeline planned to traverse 1,900 kilometers (1,242 miles). The project won U.S. support in 2019.
The pipeline was supposed to be operational in 2025 and eventually carry 10 billion cubic meters of gas to Europe annually.
Media reports say the initiative has not secured funding. None of the EastMed partner countries have publicly commented on what Washington’s position means for the pipeline’s future.
Turkey, which doesn’t recognize Cyprus as a nation, claims the island and its offshore resources for itself, and opposed the endeavor. On numerous occasions, the Turkish Navy harassed Israeli and Cypriot vessels doing exploratory work.
The EastMed project was also competing with a Russian-Turkish pipeline, the Turkstream, which began delivering gas to Europe in 2020.
On Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters, “If [Israeli gas] would be brought to Europe, it could only be done through Turkey,” according to a transcript released by Erdogan’s office. “Is there any hope for now? We can sit and talk about the conditions.”
The pipeline also faced the formidable geophysical challenges of passing through very deep water, sometimes at depths of 3 kilometers (1.8 miles) in an area known for seismic activity.
I had to include the whole WIN article from January 20 above, because it looks like the Biden administration has struck a deal with Russia. ”We do this for you if you restrain Turkey in the coming US war, Putin.” Biden is raking the manege for the coming war. It doesn’t look like the Israelis are aware of Biden’s plans in the North involving Russia and war.
It is in the interest of the United States that Turkey be kept in check during an American war in Syria against Iran, and Russia’s goodwill is absolutely necessary for that to happen. That is why the course of events between Russia, Turkey and Armenia is benign in January of 2022. There you see, if you just want it hard enough, you can very quickly create peace and harmony in the world. If you can trust World Israel News (WIN) from January 19 2022 Israel wants it bad enough [temporarily].
”…Diplomatic talks are ongoing with Israel, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a press conference late Tuesday, underlining that his Israeli counterpart Isaac Herzog may visit Turkey soon…” Quote; WIN
However, not to mention something important. Biden warned Russia about Russia invading Ukraine, according to Sveriges Radio the 20th of January 2022. ”Do I think he’ll test the West, Yes, I think he will! But I think he will pay a serious and dear price for it.” Quote; Joe Biden
