US threatens Germany over Russian-gas pipeline

While I'm for pushing clean alternatives to carbon-based fuel, Nord Stream 2 is not for the USA to decide or to threaten anyone about in the way it has been.

Chancellor Angela Merkel, backed by France and Austria, has in the past insisted the pipeline is a "purely economic project" that will ensure cheaper, more reliable gas supplies.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas also weighed in on the transatlantic row last week, saying "European energy policy should be decided in Europe, not in the United States."
