Europeans Could Use Gas Pipeline from Russia as Leverage on Putin’s Behavior by Refusing Product If Necessary


Imagine the Euros telling Russia to pullout of Syria or else they will buy much more LNG product from the U. S. rather than from Russia, or telling Putin to stop funding the jihadis of the Iranian government lest the sourcing for the LNG switch to the U. S., away from Russia, they would have Putin over a barrel, because Russia’s economy is only the size of Italy or New York state, so this leverage would be immense if the Germans would treat the U. S. on trade as an ally rather than as a foe.
