German diplomat: George Bush did not rule out the possibility of a nuclear strike in response to the September 11 attacks

51
After the September 11 terrorist attacks on 2001 on the twin towers of the World Trade Center (MTC) in New York, the administration of then-President George W. Bush did not rule out a nuclear strike on Afghanistan, where at that time the terrorist number one was supposed to be Bin Laden, The ex-Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany Schroeder Michael Steiner told the correspondent of the Spiegel edition. His words are quoted RIA News.




To the question “whether the United States considered the possibility of a nuclear strike,” Steiner replied: “Documents were prepared. They really went through all the options. ”

According to him, the German government "at that moment seriously feared that the US reaction would indeed be excessive because of the shock suffered."

The agency recalls that the attacks in New York were committed by Al-Qaeda representatives with the help of hijacked passenger planes that were directed at the MTC buildings. As a result, about 3 thousand people died.

          It’s also a pity that the authors don’t talk about how many more people died in the so-called retaliation against terrorist number one ......

        After the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the twin towers of the World Trade Center (MTC) in New York, then-President George W. Bush’s administration did not rule out a nuclear strike against Afghanistan, where at that time there was allegedly the number one terrorist, Bin Laden

        And why in Afghanistan, and not in Washington? - Then two problems would be immediately resolved: both Bin Laden would be satisfied, and the "hornet's nest" would cease to exist.

        the real Boeing could not fall on the pentagon along such a trajectory, as the official version of the USA says, and Boeing’s engines were not found. Unlike New York, where they showed the crash of aircraft at the WTC from different angles, we did not show the video with the crash of planes at the Pentagon.
        The Boeing was most likely:

          names of passengers crashing into the Pentagon’s Pentagon are classified. According to the official version, the engines burned out — the whole plane burned out and there was nothing left of it. The original photo posted on the network was this. With a comment from the Pentagon that the plane crashed into the Pentagon. After the mass comments that this is complete bullshit, the photo was deleted. But managed to scatter around the world.

            And the Americans also shot a d / f, where they said that the “sector” of the Pentagon building, where the Boeing type fell, was reinforced by the impact of an airplane or rocket shortly before September 11th. Like the Pentagon, it’s lucky - insidious terrorists accidentally fell to the place where the building was strengthened, if they got there where the building wasn’t strengthened, they would destroy the entire Pentagon. Another "fluke".
            Plus, even on September 11, passengers who did not know how to control an airplane did heroically take the Boeing down to the white house and save the president of United States, just like in a Hollywood action movie, only without a happy end, where the passenger lands the plane at the airport on command from the ground.

      Aluminum airplane fuselages pierced the double steel beams of the skyscraper structure ... this is a terrorist attack so a terrorist attack !!

      Or maybe the double steel beams were killed not by aluminum airplane fuselages, but by ultra-low power nuclear charges specially laid down in the building structure?
      http://masterok.livejournal.com/1310846.html
      What should they use nuclear weapons in Afghanistan if they used nuclear weapons in their country to enter this Afghanistan?
      ... This happened in connection with the emergence of a new generation of buildings that appeared in the late 60s. Namely, buildings on a steel frame ...
      These steel columns were incredibly thick-walled — each wall was 2,5 inches (6,35 cm) thick, so the total thickness of each of the columns was 5 inches (12,7 cm). To imagine how much this is, here is a good example for comparison: the frontal armor of the best of the tanks of the Second World War - the T-34 - was only 1,8 inches (4,5 cm) and it was single-walled.
      However, in those days there was virtually no artillery armor-piercing projectile capable of penetrating this armor. Of course, that no explosives will also ever be able to break through the frontal armor of a tank (with the exception of only cumulative charges; but even cumulative charges cannot break through such armor in the sense in which we consider it here - such charges can only burn through a narrow hole in the armor plate) ...
      However, in accordance with US laws governing the construction of skyscrapers, their architects must submit a satisfactory demolition project in order for the construction project to be approved by the Buildings Department at all. No one may be allowed to erect a skyscraper that will be impossible to demolish in the future. This is the main reason why such nuclear drift systems are generally integrated into skyscrapers. This may sound ironic, but such skyscraper nuclear demolition systems were not designed to actually demolish these skyscrapers, especially considering that no one has practical experience in such an industry. The nuclear demolition systems were intended only to convince the Department of Buildings to allow the construction itself.

To fly planes over the country and wasn’t detected by air defense systems. There are too many random coincidences saying that the Americans themselves could be in share

    To deliver a nuclear strike on Afghanistan.
    Not new, the USA has always been distinguished by a commitment to provocations and can fabricate any, even unthinkable nonsense.
    The explosions of the “twins” were most likely carried out by the special services, as well as other provocations such as the assassination of the Archduke, the attack on the radio station in Gleivitz, the Gulf of Tonkin, etc. It's just that everything further becomes apparent, because everything is sewn with white thread and sewn in a bag you can’t hide.

    Too simple conclusions are drawn at this agency. Under the influence of emotions, I suppose. And who planned the operation did not occur to find out? First you need to prepare direct performers and provide them with training at least in a minimal amount. Over time, it turns out about three years, from this we must begin the countdown of the beginning of the operation. The CIA should have turned its eyes.
    Yes, and the elimination of virtual Bin Laden would be worth it. Did it really exist at all? Why is such a simple operation secret?

    Well, maybe ordinary citizens then experienced a shock, but the leadership of this country is most likely not.

    Al-Qaeda terrorist attacks in New York using hijacked passenger planes that were sent to the MTC buildings

    And here is a lie. That would have been written: the attacks in New York were committed by representatives of al-Qaeda with the support of the ruling circles of the United States ...

    I think that it is clear to everyone now that the states should remove 2 buildings with all the people in order to gain access to oil is like 2 fingers. What 2 buildings ... They are now cutting out entire countries and nothing.

    The metal supports of the shopping center (located in the middle of the building) after the collapse had the form of neat slices at an angle of about 30 degrees. That is, they were cut in advance (during the so-called installation of new communication equipment) a month before the "catastrophe" so that the buildings culturally sank, rather than fall to the full New York.

    Strange statement.

    Given that the cost of one atomic bomb may exceed the cost of the whole of Afghanistan. Well, maybe half. Well, even if a quarter.

    Do you need it?
