“‘Is Italy capable of delivering a thermonuclear strike?… Could the Belgians and the Dutch drop hydrogen bombs on enemy targets?… Germany’s air force couldn’t possibly be training to deliver bombs 13 times more powerful than the one that destroyed Hiroshima, could it?… Nuclear weapons are stored on air-force bases in Italy, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands [and Turkey]— and planes from each of those countries are capable of delivering them.”
This headline very misleading!
"Europe’s Five 'Undeclared Nuclear Weapons States'. Turkey’s Nuclear Arsenal. Russia and Iran are the Targets"
These five nations are: "Turkey, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands and Italy".
"Amply documented, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Turkey are in possession of nuclear weapons which are deployed under national command against Russia, Iran and the Middle East"
What this article speaks about understand AS AMERICAN NUCLEAR WEAPONS STORED ON NATO BASES! The various five nations not having an independent ability and authority to employ nuclear munitions. So I would think.
ITALIANS, GERMANS, DUTCH, TURK AND BELGIANS NOT POSSESSING AN INDEPENDENT AND AUTONOMOUS ATOMIC STRIKE CAPABILITY!
WEAPONS NOT USE-ABLE WITHOUT AMERICAN AUTHORITY AND EXPERTISE. SOME SORT OF INTERLOCK SYSTEM EXISTS TO PREVENT ROGUE USAGE?
ALSO, THAT THE PRESENCE AND LOCATIONS OF THESE WEAPONS IN SUCH DETAIL IS "WELL DOCUMENTED" SHOULD BE WORRISOME. WHO NEEDS AN INTELLIGENCE SERVICE?
