American experts: the United States is secretly taking out nuclear weapons from Europe

In recent years, the United States has significantly reduced its nuclear arsenal stationed in Europe, secretly removing some of the munitions to its territory. This conclusion was made by experts from the Federation of American Scientists. "Businessman".


According to experts, recently the number of American tactical nuclear weapons in Europe, it was reduced from 150 warheads to 100. Moreover, it is said that the removal of nuclear weapons from European territory was carried out in secret, this was not mentioned anywhere.

Most of the nuclear warheads are said to have been removed from Turkey's Incirlik airbase as US-Turkish relations have deteriorated recently. Some time ago, there were rumors that Turkey would finally close the airbase for foreign military contingents.

At the same time, it is possible that part of the US nuclear arsenal, stored at six military bases in five NATO countries (Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey), was temporarily moved to the United States to carry out modernization to the B61-12 level. After the work carried out, the ammunition will be returned to storage sites in Europe.

An example is the American airbase in German Büchel, where the United States carried out the modernization of nuclear bombs without informing anyone about it. In 2020, they simply secretly removed the arsenal to the United States, modernized it and returned it to the storage location as well.

At the same time, experts still do not exclude the reduction of the US nuclear arsenal in Europe on a permanent basis. In their opinion, the Pentagon understands the risks associated with storing nuclear weapons on foreign territory. This is especially true for Turkey.

        Or the aging of nuclear weapons.
        The nuclear charge during storage ... gets old. not only electronics and kinematics, but also the charge itself. Transuranic elements accumulate ... and after a while the warhead becomes unstable. It might not work ... or it might work abnormally. And the maximum storage life for the most advanced warhead is 30 years.
        After that, that's it.
        Only for processing at a radiochemical plant with purification and, in fact, manufacturing again.
        But there are no such radiochemical facilities in the United States today.
        The old ones are gone for a long time.
        And new ones have not yet been introduced ... they are trying, but they do it badly ... and very expensive - competencies have been lost. Old specialists have died long ago or are deeply retired, while new ones ... the problem with new ones was not prepared ... And the education system is not conducive to it.

          The United States is the # 1 country in terms of GDP in the world. If we assume that rags and computers are produced in Asia for the whole world, then iron remains in the United States. Why do you think they have lost technology? They withdrew from the treaty on medium-range missiles. Now (I guess) they are busy planning the supply of New Pershing to Europe. It was all already in the mid 80s

            It's about warheads.
            Otherwise, they also have failures, but not because of inability, but because of miscalculations in planning - they thought that they had already defeated everyone and only police functions remained.

    There are two rather gloomy moments for the United States. First, the countries in which nuclear weapons are stored are increasingly speaking out about the inexpediency of setting themselves up as targets to please the United States. This is exactly about Germany. Well, with Turkey after the coup, which was weak under the wing of the mattresses on Incirlik, it is generally a song.
    And secondly, it has long been said that it is not because of the good life that the United States is arranging a project for the transition of "tactical" warheads in even strategic missiles ... There is not enough weapons-grade plutonium, but getting it is all, the technology is lost. Hello to the HEU-LEU treaty, you have forgotten how to do something yourself

          But the reserves are so large that there is no point in producing a new one.

      It was not for this that they facilitated its removal from Ukraine, in order to return this club to them.

        stop Are you so short-sighted not to see the difference in the Outskirts of 1991 and the Outskirts of 2021?
        Besides, why do you think that the "club" will belong to the Outskirts, and not be purely American?

          You are just short-sighted, because that Ukraine cannot be compared with today's day.
          The club will be only American, if only because they see this difference. And who will say that on those ships that come to Odessa or on airplanes that fly over Ukraine?

            Yes, any more or less competent military specialist in the field of arms movement control with a special warhead.

            Didn't you know that? Well, take an interest in the methods of such remote control. You will be surprised yes

            It seems, after all, that you are not myopic, but very, very short-sighted ...

        This is the same thing in principle))) He warned them back in Munich that they did not know what they had done with their idiotic policy .. Now the berries have appeared .. We also have a lot of problems (most artificially created from the outside), but somehow it is stable we go our own way, despite the howl of the inner jackals of all stripes.

      China did its best with its industry, people, science, and successes. The world's first economy. Hmm, the United States did not "progegemonize" for long, missed the moment. In the 90s, it was necessary to start pressing, while the Chinese were making only down jackets and thermoses. And Russia would now have time to win between these two sharks, and to raise the industry. If we do not do it, we will not be able to maintain an army. Torn and divided. And so they kicked out from everywhere. The United States and China will share the planet for a long time.

    In recent years, the United States has significantly reduced its nuclear arsenal stationed in Europe, secretly removing some of the munitions to its territory.

    "The tradition is fresh, but hard to believe."
    If this were true, it would hardly be done in secret. According to the mentality of Pin to Sik, all the media would “trumpet” about this, “proving” what kind of “peace-loving” they are.
    So somewhere here "the dog rummaged." what

    American experts: the United States is secretly taking out nuclear weapons from Europe
    Why do they take them out?
    After the work carried out, the ammunition will be returned to storage sites in Europe.
    This means that these are planned maintenance and modernization of ammunition.
    What's new?
    What's the secret?

    Secretly, but how else it should be, not a pipette in a glass. And contraction, because there is a decay of the radiant, even ordinary explosives change very strongly and in a short time. Here you really want to, you don’t want to (you have to pay who they are kept and then for a bribe, scientists are everywhere), but you need to dispose of, and all the components of the ammunition.

    Better to let the Americans take out their nuclear weapons than the ubiquitous gypsies steal them on the sly.

    Having learned that Russia and China, in the event of a nuclear conflict with NATO, will inevitably first of all hit the US (decision-making centers) and plan to destroy the EU until the end, they take out nuclear weapons, hoping to stay on the sidelines
