Germany fact of the day

Summary:
Germany owns no nuclear weapons. It renounced the very idea when it reunified in 1990. But if war were to break out in Europe today, German pilots could clamber into German planes, take off from Büchel Air Base in Rhineland-Palatinate and drop nuclear bombs on Russian troops. The Luftwaffe can do that thanks to Nato’s nuclear-sharing scheme, under which America quietly stations nuclear bombs across five countries in Europe. Here is more from The Economist, mostly covering Turkey and the tactical nuclear weapons stored there. The post Germany fact of the day appeared first on Marginal REVOLUTION.
