so yeah they have been there for a long time but the Turks dont have the authorization to use them with out usa approval(if that ) and as they are not readied for action i dont think them storing our weapons as a nato member is that relevant to modern events
Turkey is one of five European nations that continue to house U.S. tactical nuclear weapons allocated for NATO. The weapons, however, are no longer integral to the NATO military mission. In fact, their readiness posture is such that it would take months to prepare them for battle. Nonetheless, it will be difficult to remove them from Turkey given Ankara's concerns about the Iranian nuclear program and its somewhat strained relationship with the United States.

The United States of America deploys around 70 B61 nuclear bombs in Turkey to use them in case of necessary. According to a Turkish news agency citing well informed sources, all of the bombs are deployed in the Turkish Incirlik air base in Adana, south of the country.
All appear to be coming from the same source, but this is quiet the slip isn't it? (Although it was predicted in the Bible that Damascus would be levelled, and Turkey borders Syria) Although, I doubt these are intended for Syria because even if Chemical Weapons are used on their own people, it would be a conventional military intervention.
What do you guys think>?

Just how ignorant are people?
Better yet, just how lazy are people to not do their own research?
Just goes to show, that even on a forum like ATS where most people think they are intelligent and individuals rather then brainwashed sheep who sit in front of tv believing everything FOX etc spit out, they are in fact no better then the rest of society.
What we have here is some guy posting some article, about the US replacing ageing nukes in a host country.
He puts up a misleading title, to make it appear as if the US is deploying nukes for the first time to this country.
And then we get comments like "Putin wont be happy"....
