Commenting article: U.S. Reportedly Transferring Nukes from Turkey to Romania

Lots of \'unnamed sources\' in this article. Perhaps if we stop and think. The US has never disclosed or commented on the location of its nuclear weapons, ever. The movement of these weapons is a closely guarded secret known to a very few. If the US gave a \'source\' information that mentioned Turkey, Romania, or even the South Pole, all we could reasonably deduce is that the weapons are certainly not in those locations. Given the long running internal unrest in Turkey, the ISIS areas next door, and even before the attempted coup; is it reasonable to believe they would have continued to use that storage facility when they have so many others to utilise? Many may not like the USA, but all accept that when it comes to their nuclear weapons they verge on the paranoid regarding security and control. Could this story be an element of disinformation by those with a political agenda? Who knows

This is an example the Cold War has not ended.

Last nukes in Turkey were the Pershings, which were removed as part of the Cuban Missile crisis. They were sent back to West Germany and eventually destroyed as part of SALT 1.

The New Cold War has added a little Islamization.

I wonder in the name of our Creator we can NUKE?

Turkish instability is an alert.
