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

42

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, the troops of the allies in the anti-Hitler coalition, including the American ones, were deployed 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 variety of military units and military facilities there - from tank connections 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.

      По видимому,ядерное оружие США сменит адрес(а) на более "восточный"(е).

      I'm afraid to even guess which... Слишком широк выбор "младоНАТОвцев-подстилок" и "партнёров"...

          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 where were they taken? They wrote that in Poland.

        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?

    Немцы будут рады, но поляки ещё "радее". Они спят и видят, когда их США назначат своей любимой женой в Европе.
    И американцы к этому идут. Создают большую военную базу в Польше , "продают" им технику, и даже F-35.

      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

    Это невозможно исполнить. Только в сочетании с появлением у всех одновременно американских баз в Германии "вежливых людей" немцы могут быть услышаны в Вашингтоне.
    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?

    Свежо предание, но ... . США не для этого вводят в "европы" и в частности в Германию, Польшу и прибалтику всё новые подразделения и бронетехнику, чтобы в одночасье по требованию руководств этих стран, погрузиться на пароходы и отчалить от "дойной коровы" - Европы. БОльшая часть экспорта вооружений у США именно с Европой (напрямую и через НАТО). А ядерные арсеналы США в Европе - это напоминание последней, кто является сюзереном континента. И нет сомнения, что козлобородый Сэм приложит все усилия, чтобы удержать синицу в кулаке.

    Всё не так, как китайцы написали. Есть сверхсекретный “Kanzler-Act" (канлер-экт) который обвяжет каждое немецкое правительство делать то что США прикажут. Каждый канцлер его должен подписать. До сих пор США являются оккупирующей державой в Германии. И они командуют. Желание большинства нашего немецкого народа никакой роли не играет. Привет из Германии.

    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.
