Joe Biden's "promise" that "there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2" pipeline if Russia invades Ukraine is attracting new attention in the wake of the suspected sabotage of both Nord Stream 2 and Nord Stream 1.

"If Russia invades, that means tanks or troops crossing the -- the border of Ukraine again, then there will be -- there will be no longer a Nord Stream 2," Biden threatened during a press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in February. "We will bring an end to it."

"How will you do that exactly, since the project, and control of the project, is in Germany's control?" a reporter asked.

"We will -- I promise you -- we will be able to do it," Biden said, smirking.

Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland issued similar threats on January, warning: "If Russia invades Ukraine, one way or another, Nord Stream 2 will not move forward."

If the CIA just sabotaged Russian/European civilian infrastructure that would amount to an outrageous escalation of force putting all Americans at risk of a wider war with Russia.

"There is no doubt that these were explosions," seismologist Bjorn Lund of Sweden's National Seismology Centre told SVT on Tuesday.

The German magazine Spiegel reported Tuesday that the CIA "warned" the German government weeks ago during summer about "possible attacks on gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea."

"The German government received the CIA tip in summer, Spiegel reported, citing unnamed sources, adding that Berlin assumes a targeted attack on Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines," Reuters reported.

When asked about the prospect the pipelines were sabotaged, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said, "No option can be ruled out right now."

"The destruction that occurred on the same day at once on three strings of the offshore gas pipelines of the Nord Stream system is unprecedented," the operators of the Nord Stream pipelines said in a statement on Tuesday. "It is not yet possible to estimate the timing of the restoration of the gas transmission infrastructure."
