Schroeder cries to the EU

I read online that Gerhard Schroeder, the German Chancellor-turned-Russian lapdog, wants the EU to step in and force Estonia to accept Gazprom's Nord Stream pipeline.
This will be quite a test of EU influence over Estonia, which has every right to reject the pipeline. Maybe Gerhard should have thought about consulting Estonia and the other Baltic nations before trying to ram this pipeline through their territorial waters in the first place.

He argues that the pipeline is in the interest of greater Europe, and that the meaningless Baltic nations shouldn't be allowed to stop it. What's wrong with connecting it via land, Gerhard? Or are you afraid that Baltic nations might try to copy what Russia does 's use fuel as a means of political bullying?
