    Is Germany Putinís Captive?

    It rather looks that way.

    Germany got rid of coal and nuclear power. Their ďenergiewendeĒ is just a collection of broken-down and neglected windmills. Their only other alternative is to import natural gas from Russia.

    Part of the price of Putinís gas is that you dance to his tune.

    So why do we have troops in Europe? They are Putinís slaves anyway.

    Germany appears on the brink of collapse.
    The November 2018 elections represent a lynchpin event, regardless of the outcome.

    Germany has been very dependent on Russian natural Gas for a decade or more, evidently a parting "gift" to Merkel from Gerhard Schroeder. I vaguely remember Russia putting the squeeze on Germany several winters ago.

    I don't know that Germany's bird-choppers are in disrepair, but they are so intermittent that they cannot be relied on for base-load power.

    Most of US energy imports are from Canada and without electricity imports from Canada, a good part of the US grid would go black. So what does that make the US?

    New England and New York can buy power from coal-fired plants in the Ohio Valley.

    So why don't they?

    Trump can afford to talk big because he has Canada and Mexico to make for his country's energy shortfalls. A little thing called NAFTA guarantees it.
