“The fact is, if you look at it soberly, the country that is most profiting from this war is the U.S. because they are selling more gas and at higher prices, and because they are selling more weapons,” a senior official, who was not named, reportedly told Politico.
The official added that the U.S. needed to realize that public opinion throughout Europe was changing, especially as the continent has faced skyrocketing energy prices, which are only expected to get worse as winter sets in. He said that many Europeans were becoming increasingly skeptical of the U.S. and the war, which has dragged on since March.
“We are really at a historic juncture,” the official said. “America needs to realize that public opinion is shifting in many EU countries.”
