#1 Presumably not to just US LNG; lots could be available from West Africa and the Persian Gulf, all without transiting Russia.

#2 American silver or Russian lead. Wasn't a hard decision.

Dude, can we please stick to The Narrative? This is all about Trump bullying some woman. Nothing to do with Germany lining up alternate gas suppliers or getting out from under the thumb of Russia.

#7 It’s very good to know that the Merkel government has wisely been working up to diversifying suppliers, and they chose this politically convenient moment to announce it, European Conservative.

Yes that's pretty much it, and it makes a lot of sense to diversify. U.S, LNG is currently more expensive than Russian gas, but this could change pretty soon.
Actually LNG is a good idea for the next decades.
