This is coolbert:
From Der Spiegel concerns as to a confrontation between Russia and NATO escalating. Escalating tensions possibly resulting in armed confrontation with an atomic aspect in the background at all times!!
"Nuclear Specter Returns: 'Threat of War Is Higher than in the Cold War'"
"The Ukraine crisis has dramatically worsened relations between NATO and Russia. With cooperation on nuclear security now suspended and the lack of a 'red telephone,' experts at the Munich Security Conference warn any escalation in tensions could grow deadly."
THAT RED TELEPHONE A RAPID FORM OF SECURE COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN NATO, THE VARIOUS EUROPEAN POWERS AND THE RUSSIAN MILITARY HIGH COMMAND. AT THIS EXACT MOMENT NO SUCH LINE OF COMMUNICATION EXISTS!!
"these channels currently do not exist . . . A direct line had been set up between NATO and the Russian military's general staff in February 2013, but it was cut as a result of the Ukraine crisis."
Germany too a NUCLEAR POWER! German warplanes in case of attack can retaliate using NUCLEAR WEAPONS AS PROVIDED BY THE UNITED STATES!
"It is common knowledge that some of these weapons are also stationed in Germany. Up to 20 B61 aerial bombs, now being updated at great expense, are stored at the Büchel Air Base in the Eifel region of western Germany. They are under US command, but German Tornado fighter jets would drop the bombs in the event of a war."
That go-signal to use battlefield atomic munitions ONLY upon release from American authority. German military units did possess atomic weapons all throughout the era of the Cold War in a similar fashion. This is NOT new!
THAT PEOPLE ARE EVEN TALKING THIS WAY IS WORRISOME JUST IN ITSELF!
