Nabucco Slaves Are Shedding Their Chains

The Economist has a good video on the Nabucco Pipeline, which would circumvent Russia (a violent country in Central Asia). The name references Nebuchadnezzar, that is, Putin.

I previously reference Nabucco in posts about the Eastern Partnership and Supplier Failure.

A Side Note: I had the great pleasure to see a production of Nabucco the play in the Arena di Verona, back in 2000. I can’t believe I didn’t make the connection until now!
