Hairraising story. Russian behemoth in Alaska.
#1
http://www.opednews.com/maxwrite/diarypa...?did=10213

Quote:Last week, a Gazprom delegation visited Ankorage, Alaska while Govenor Sarah Palin was out and about. The Russians aren't coming. They're already here. Guess who Gazprom came to speak with. No, not Ms. "They're our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska." Sarah Palin is too tough on Putin to be caught shaking hands with the guys from Gazprom.

It was only a matter of time before Russian energy giant Gazprom made their move, into Alaska. Let's face it, Gazprom is the world's leading pipeline & district heating specialist. So if Alaska, if the USA is to get serious on installing a pipeline from northern Alaska to the USA via Canada, the best people to have engaged in the project are the Russians. The pure hypocracy of it all. Imagine that. On TV screens and in front of the crowds while out on the campaign trail, politicians are doing their best to display toughness on Russia and Putin while in reality, they know we need the Russians to get many a job done, maybe even to survive. Of course there are two sides to the coin as Ukrainians recently found out. Wait a sec, maybe the title of this article is really true! How can we stop the Russians from coming? Well, one way would be to drop plans to open Alaska's wilderness for Oil drilling and/or tapping into natural gas sources, to drop plans to install a mother of a pipeline, to drop the idea of having to continue down the path of using fossil fuel. Wouldn't it be better for us all if we would spend half as much money on new, clean, green energy sources as we now spend on defense and war? Besides, war aint no fun. Heck. Everybody knows that! Even the Russians.

Globalism knows no borders, why should we ?

If Putin looking for a place to walk and feed his behemoth, Alaska is the best. Russian country-style churches and forts, green grass and forests, nostalgic memories...

Hey!! What an opportunity!! The US or Alaska could hire Gazprom to build a huge pipeline. The we could pull a Putin: Claim that Gazprom is violating the ecology, and fire them, but retain posession of the 1/2 done pipeline.

Go for it!!
Jefferson: I place economy among the first and important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.

Then you need a nationalized gas company in Alaska and Canada. Wink1

lol.

You'd think the writer of the article would already have known about all the oil and gas pipelines from Alaska to the US via Canada already in existence before he started acting like Russians are the only ones who could make one.

The one trailing to Fort Nelson BC and ending up in California, (really about a dozen or more following the same route), has been there for almost 50 years now.




Had this encounter with a Russian ex-pat at a lake where he was bragging about a wooden canoe we were watching on the lake. He was real impressed that his friend -- the former structural engineer paddeling the craft -- had built this canoe.

To listen to him talk you'd think no one in Canada was building canoes-- not real canoes -- until a Russian came over to do it. :S1

Just sayin green. No offense.

You hear the same story from them about drinking beer, cold weather, hockey, skiing, snowshoes, marksmanship even...hardy-har-har...automobile building. No one ever did it or did it correctly until a Russian did it.

It's cute.

Yeah, it's cute.
In Russia they would tell the same about Canada.
I read a lot of ex-pat stories on the immigration sites.
Canadian legislation allows double citizenship. It's good.
