Chinese press: Germany wants to remove US nuclear weapons from its territory


Germany will soon refuse to host US nuclear weapon. The appreciation of the growing desire of the Germans to free themselves from US military facilities on their territory is given by the Chinese press, namely, the publication Sohu.


After the defeat of Germany in World War II, troops of allies of the anti-Hitler coalition, including the US, were stationed on its territory. Since the Cold War between the USSR and the United States soon began, Washington has been building up its military presence in West Germany for decades, deploying a wide variety of military units and military facilities from tank units to strategic aviation. Naturally, nuclear weapons were also located in Germany.

Although Germany became a single state after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the Soviet Union soon collapsed, the United States was not in a hurry to withdraw its troops from Germany. Until now, although thirty years have passed since the reunification of Germany, American military facilities are located on its territory.

According to official information, most of the American nuclear weapons were removed from German territory by the 2010s, but at least 20 nuclear bombs are still in Germany. And the American leadership is not in a hurry to take them out, preferring to intimidate European countries with an imaginary Russian threat and argue that only the USA can save Europe from numerous risks - "from Russia to Islamic radicalism."

Meanwhile, in Germany itself, according to Sohu, more and more voices are being heard for the complete removal of American nuclear weapons. 75 years after World War II, Germany expects to change its political status. This country plays a leading role in the European Union, but at the same time foreign (American) troops are stationed on its territory and nuclear weapons are located, which pose a danger to the Germans themselves.

The growing status of Germany in Europe and its economic development in one way or another will give rise to the growth of political ambitions. Berlin will be less and less pleased with the presence of the US military and the very presence in the position of a client, a vassal of the United States. And the United States is losing its former power against the background of ongoing political and economic transformations of a global scale.

According to Sohu, it does not matter at all who will rule Germany, but the fact is that any leader will ultimately also insist on the gradual liquidation of American military facilities in the country. After all, the presence of foreign troops gives rise to several negative factors at once: it offends German national sovereignty, poses a threat to the country's environmental security, undermines the independence of the European Union, and leads to large financial costs for ensuring the vital functions of troops and military facilities.

Germany may well be the “boss” in Europe, in which case it should not allow Washington to give directions to it. But this fact also indicates that the North Atlantic Alliance is not very stable,

- emphasizes the author of the Chinese edition.

Until now, Germany had no political opportunity to free its territory from the American military presence, but who knows if it will appear in the foreseeable future? Moreover, in the United States themselves now more and more often they talk about the need to reduce the US military presence overseas.

US President Donald Trump is an active supporter of such a reduction. An experienced businessman, he is accustomed to profit from everything and is now trying to make European countries pay even more money for the presence of American troops and military facilities in their territories.

Germany, according to the Americans, pays little, so Berlin has been threatened more than once with the transfer of troops to Poland or the Baltic countries. But is this a threat? The Germans themselves will be very pleased if the US military permanently leaves their country.

      And even if they can, then Russia will not be sweeter from this.
      Apparently, US nuclear weapons will change address (a) to more "eastern" (e).

      I'm afraid to even guess which... Too wide selection of "young NATO litter" and "partners" ...

          The essence of the article: "Germany-Blah blah blah .... Guessing by type," Anything is possible "-blah blah blah." In the furnace.

          The NATO Charter prohibits the storage of nuclear weapons for storage except for Germany, and in the Federal Republic of Germany only store it in the territories occupied by the USA (the same thing happened with the Turks - they were exported ...)

        And even if they can, then Russia will not be sweeter from this.

        From this NATO will not be sweeter, because it will rattle at the seams. It may happen that the health of the German nation becomes more expensive than participation in a military bloc. And here it is not necessary to glorify the USA as something indispensable and most important. The strength of the Americans is that they were able, through threats and persuasion, to force them to accept the half-world economic rules they developed, while remaining aloof from many conflicts in the Eastern Hemisphere. BUT !!! It is isolation that can play a cruel joke with them. And the “weak leader” in this world is nonsense.
        Rallying is a threat. So far, the real threat to the EU is not at all an attack by Russia, but a slow divorce ...

          To make such forecasts (nuclear weapons removal from Germany and the withdrawal of US troops from Germany) you need to familiarize yourself with the Chancellor, and they will not show him to anyone! Alas! No one knows what obligations the Germans have there.

            What does the Chancellor-Act have to do with it, if the nuclear weapons on the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany are in the jurisdiction of the United States and the United States is free to handle it, as they see fit?

    The Germans will be happy, but the Poles are even "happier." They sleep and see when their United States will appoint their beloved wife in Europe.
    And the Americans are going to this. They create a large military base in Poland, "sell" equipment to them, and even the F-35.

      The United States is the same "and even" ready to all its "allies" vtyuhivat in any quantities
      And I took the “allies” in quotation marks because they showed themselves in all their glory, not that denying help, and even stealing from each other means of protection
      Well, how did the United States do with the French ...

    It is one thing to be the "boss" in Europe, and it is another to object to the United States, and even more so to demand the removal of nuclear weapons or the withdrawal of American bases. Sohu is in a hurry. Who will let Germany do this today?

      At least, the Germans are well aware of what they are facing with so many occupying forces (decision centers!) In their sovereign territory when reading the latest version of the Russian defense doctrine on counter-preemptive strike (WUU (or what is it called now?).
      The existing outfit of defensive forces is in principle incapable of opposing anything

    It is impossible to fulfill. Only in combination with the appearance of “polite people” at all simultaneously American bases in Germany can the Germans be heard in Washington.
    I propose that the German unification in the form of the absorption of the German Democratic Republic by the German Democratic Republic is not agreed upon with us, as the winning country, and replay all over again, under the control of the Western Group of Forces (or the GRVG ???).
    Pamfilov, for ease of vote count, is seconded to the headquarters of the Group.

    Germany, according to the Americans, pays little

    racketeering is the policy pursued by the us government.
    The Germans themselves will be very pleased if the US military forever leaves their country

    the Germans may and will be happy to see the Americans leave the country, but will the Americans leave Germany?

    Germany may well be the “boss” in Europe, in which case it should not allow Washington to give directions to it. But this fact also indicates that the North Atlantic Alliance is not very stable.

    Fresh tradition, but .... The United States is not introducing new units and armored vehicles into "Europe" and, in particular, Germany, Poland and the Baltic states, so that, at the request of the leadership of these countries, they can immediately board ships and sail away from the "cash cow" - Europe. Most of the US arms exports are with Europe (directly and through NATO). And the US nuclear arsenals in Europe are a reminder of the last who is the overlord of the continent. And there is no doubt that goat-bearded Sam will make every effort to keep the tit in his fist.

    It's not like the Chinese wrote. There is a top-secret “Kanzler-Act" (Chancellor-ect) which will oblige every German government to do what the United States orders. Every chancellor must sign it. The United States is still the occupying power in Germany. And they command. The desire of most of our German people is no role not playing. Hello from Germany.

    It all depends on how much power the United States retains after the epidemic and the economic crisis.
    Do not forget about the US colonial troops stationed under the guise of NATO troops in Europe.
