Just back from @MunSecConf, where @ColumbiaUEnergy organized a side event on energy’s use as a geopolitical weapon, and I moderated a breakfast discussion on #NordStream2. Here are a few reflections from this year’s #MSC2019 & intersection with energy/climate. (Thread)
At a broad level, the dominant theme was concern among participants about the perception that America was retreating from the global stage and its leadership role in the rules-based international order.
It was notable that the US sent its largest contingent ever of members of Congress from both sides of the aisle, perceived by many as an effort to send a signal that the USG is comprised of more than just the White House.

On my way home from #MSC2019 - and reflecting on the debates, speeches and informal meetings of the past four days in Munich. Let me share my very personal summary - w/ a focus on the transatlantic partnership. Last year, I was quite pessimistic... 1/
So let me start with a bit of good news. In our #MSCreport, we asked who would pick up the pieces of a disintegrating global order. At least rhetorically, the Europeans and representatives of other like-minded liberal democracies have underlined their willingness to step up. 2/
Most attendees agreed that Chancellor #Merkel gave one of the best foreign policy speeches of her career. She really hit a nerve in the audience. Merkel forcefully argued that "all of us" had to pick up the pieces together. 3/

I want to create a new THREAD: it will be updated day by day and it will be about all those weird political events taking place in #Russia: mysterious murders, weird accuses against journalists or politicians and no sense statements.
1.
Vladimir Uglev, the scientist who took part in the creation of #Novichok and who said that he had no doubt the agent that poisoned the Skripals was made in #Russia (bbc.co.uk/news/amp/world…) is now under police investigation for alleged pedophilia.

After the #US killed many #Russia|n Wagner PMC in #Syria (Feb. 2018), Russia's consulate in #Damascus issued death certificates with fake dates to cover up the exact toll.

Moderatorin des russischen Staatsfernsehens:
„Wir bauen #NordStream2 in einem Jahr zu Ende. Und dann zerstören wir die Ukraine!“

Eindeutiger kann man nicht versichern, dass die Pipeline ein Teil des hybriden Krieges Putins gegen seinen Nachbarn ist.

Und anders als die Kanzlerin heute erklärte, heißt „hybrider Krieg“ nicht „Propaganda im Internet“.
Hybrider Krieg heißt Zehntausende in Syrien & der Ukraine zu töten.
Hybrider Krieg heißt andere für sich in Brüssel Lobbyarbeit für die eigenen Interessen verrichten zu lassen.
& die Ausrede war auch klar: Alles Satire, alles Ironie, alles nur wegen den paranoiden Ukrainern.
Spätestens seit der Gerassimow-Doktrin basiert das Putin-Regime seine gesamte Außenpolitik auf Projektion: „Nein, wir haben ja nur gesagt, was ihr Falsches von uns denkt.“
Nonsens!

When will the #FakeNewsMedia, including #FakeNewsCNN, explain why Germany is giving Russian billions of dollars for oil? Why isn't #AngelaMerkel been called on this by US & foreign press corp? #NordStream2
Why are they so afraid of the truth?
Why are we protecting a country that is colluding with Russia?

Absolutely true. Germany gets a majority of its oil from Russia yet our liberal #FakeNewsMedia is whining about a fake Russia Collusion story. And we have to protect Germany. #NordStream
Folks, it's time to wake up. NATO has been using the US as a 2 dollar prostitute and daring us to say anything. NO MORE! Merkel needs to put out more money. #NordStream2 #AngelaMerkel
It the US has to police the world with its dollars than the world needs to shut up and do as we say. New sheriff in town folks. #DonaldTrump

#NATO summit: NATO leaders united in approving plans to bolster defenses against #Russia. (Earlier Trump slammed allies, called Germany "captive of Russia" b/c of energy deal. Actually, Russia needs that energy deal more than Germany) - The Washington Post washingtonpost.com/world/europe/t…
FACT CHECK: Russia accounts for less than 20% of Germany’s energy needs

Trump falsely claimed Germany gets up to 70% of its energy from and is therefore “captive to Russia.” Nowhere near the truth, even w/ NordStream2 pipeline. snappytv.com/tc/8449919/592… #NATO #NATOsummit
#Russia's pipeline to #Germany that Trump seems to be so mad about, explained - The Washington Post washingtonpost.com/news/worldview… #NATO #NATOsummit #NordStream2
