Skip to comments.US nukes at Turkey base at risk of seizure: report
Posted on 08/14/2016 11:54:43 PM PDT by detective
Dozens of US nuclear weapons stored at a Turkish air base near Syria are at risk of being captured by "terrorists or other hostile forces," a Washington think tank claimed Monday.
Critics have long been alarmed by America's estimated stockpile of about 50 nuclear bombs at Incirlik in southern Turkey, just 70 miles (110 kilometers) from the border with war-torn Syria.
The issue took on fresh urgency last month following the attempted coup in Turkey, in which the base's Turkish commander was arrested on suspicion of complicity in the plot.

The question is did Obama do it on purpose?
Oh wow ANOTHER ISLAMIC NUCLEAR POWER under Barry’s watch....
That makes TWO TIMES as many as BEFORE his presidency....
Sharia States with nukes Before Obama: 1
Sharia States with nukes Before Obama: 3
Gee, I feel much safer....
Can you imagine what the media would’ve done if something like this had occurred on George W. Bush’s watch?
The question is did Obama do it on purpose?
He didn't put them there. My understanding is, they had been based there for years, dating back well into the Cold War.
Did he leave them there on purpose? Maybe. Traitor that he is, he's a good buddy of Erdogan.
But the necessity at this time is, the weapons must be removed, any Turkish lives lost in the defense of their sovereignty counting for nothing!
Or there would be a zillion marines there already.
This is TREASON.
And nothing will be done.
He HATES this country so much and I HATE HIM SO MUCH RIGHT THE ### BACK
They are where he wants them to be.
He LAUGHS at all of us because no one will do anything.
And his popularity will stay the sam because ditzes and ###holes only give a #### about video game, smart phone, text, gay marriage, feminism, BLM etc.
He had DESTROYED this country.
Let’s not fool ourselves. Trump is right. America is not great anymore. Not even a republic anymore.
But it will be when Trump wins
Everybody stop clutching your pearls and get off your fainting couches. The Turks are not going to touch our nukes.
When has Obama ever prevented anything?
Barry is going to have his Sunni Brothers nuclear armed even before his Shia Cousins so armed.
Let me be the first to welcome our new Caliphate Overlords.
Let’s call Obama what he is because no military just leaves nukes behind in enemy bases along with thousands of humvees, pickup trucks, tanks, howitzers, automatic weapons, enough ammo to arm a small army and continues to make air drops that get picked up by our enemies. He’s f#%ing aiding and abetting our enemies using our tax dollars to foot the bill! He’s a traitor and enemy of the U.S. no one would keep their job making these types of screw-ups in the real world (not that he’s doing accidentally by any means); the guy’s almost certainly assisting our enemies.
Flash! Obama, move those nukes, now!!!
Sure, move them to Iran as it would save them a lot of time, effort and money.
And obama hears it and plays golf.
Agree. There are safe guards in place that even Obozo couldn't stop. There are still some adults around.
agree with your comment
Or... blow them in place to avoid capture!

Back in the 1970’s when I was a member of the U.S.A.F. Security Police in SAC,a stateside base that had nukes would have at least 60 men to protect our class (A) nuclear weapons.That was stateside where in the event all hell broke loose you could call upon an Army division to assist with protecting them.
If it happens that the Turks really want those weapons it won’t take much for them to get them.They could easily throw a couple of civil society of combat troops against our Airbases and take the nukes in a walk.
With Obsma’s history,he would do nothing to stop it.
He might even blame it on movie.Dr.Strangelove in this case.
This is how Obama given ISIS a nuke, so the U.S. will be forced to make new, brutal concessions.
