"Trump accuses Germany of getting 85% of their gas from Russia, says it's a security risk."

Damn clever these Russians - I didn't know you could deliver malware through the gas pipes.

Seriously, what has the Russian government got to gain by using gas supplies as a form of ransom? This is a country with vast gas reserves which wants foreign currency. To do that you become known as a reliable supplier. Cut off German gas in winter and your economy just tanked.

Delivering US gas by tanker is far more of a security risk. In fact, Trump's strategy of trying to force the EU to buy American shows who is the real villain in this piece.
