If they pay me, I'll eat their food every day and supply them with some natural gas, too.

I do like potatoes.

Fine.  More gas for the rest of the continent.

Great. What better way to say, "I own you. Good job, Puppets".

Far right politics and political corruption sure do spend a lot of time being the same politicians.

It travels through Ukraine? Well, it'd be a shame if the pipeline started having issues.

Not too surprising, Russia kind of needs to sell natural gas for economic reasons.

Sure, sure, but pooty is just gas-lighting them before the inevitable de-nazifacation of Italy begins.

Can't have all those dachas in Tuscanograd going cold.  Putin's daughter likes Tuscany or is that his old girlfriend Wendy Deng or is that Murdochs

That's a nice natural gas pipeline you've got there. It would a real shame if something were to happen to it.

For a while now many economists were pushing the idea that the global economy should be a huge free market.

Now that Russia and the Saudis are starting to either dole out or withhold one of the world's most essential commodities coontil renewables kick in anyway) depending on political considerations, it seems the idea of the global free market has just died.

If only Russia would denazify Russia.

About 90 or so. Which is part of the problem.

But the right wing nutcase who likes underage girls owning all the media is a problem as well.

Italy was already buying Russian gas at a negotiated bargain price then reselling a lot of it at market prices to other countries. They had a pretty sweet deal.

Surprisingly enough, Italians prefer heat in the winter.
It's a free market bonanza

Physical reasons too. If they shut in their wells, there is no guarantee that they will be able to restore full flow again.

So much this.  Shutter those pipelines and the cost and timeline, plus lack of access to western services means a shutdown becomes permanent for all intents and purposes.  (side note - spell check wanted 'all intensive purposes' (for fux ache))

They also prefer Tulsi for president, due to her olive skin and fascist tendencies
