German Foreign Minister: US Nukes Must Not Be Stationed In Europe

In an interview with German news agency dpa, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that US nuclear missiles must not be stationed in Germany, or anywhere in Europe.

“The deployment of new medium-range missiles would meet with widespread resistance in Germany,” Maas said commenting on the US plans to withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty with Russia.

“By no means should Europe become the scene of a debate on weapons build-up,” Maas said. “Nuclear armament is certainly the wrong answer.”

“The policy of the 80s does not help to answer the questions of today.”

Both Russia, the US accuse each other of violating the INF Treaty, which bans deployment of nuclear and conventional missiles with ranges of 500-5,500km. According to the US, Russia is developing missiles prohibited by the INF treaty. Moscow says US missile defense systems already stationed in Europe can easily be converted into offensive ballistic missile launchers.

Earlier, Russia warned it would have to respond if US missiles are stationed in Europe, making any such sites potential targets.

      The German status quoe is getting challanged form the inside.

  • Daniel Miller

    The US is still useing free fall nuclear weapons????? wooow i knew the US nuclear arsenal is obsolete but holy shit this is pathetic.

    • Rodger

      Free fall is fine as shipping containers and (underwater) drones are going to be the thing for the next 25 years anyway.

      • Daniel Miller

        Hell no free fall bombs have not been in use in Russia since the 1970’s…the US still uses them ffs thats sad.

        • Michael

          Those free-fall nukes are only for use by the Imperium Americanum’s dumb minions. For example, all german Tornado-fighter bombers feature equipment for deploying american nukes, as do the fighter planes of the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Spain, because, you know, they are expendable…

          • Daniel Miller

            but thats just the problem none of them can make it to the taregts the aircraft are very vunrable to modern AA systems.

  • Redadmiral

    Here we have an unfolding situation where the Big Bully with the Big Bludgeon, who has been use to lying, cheating and murdering whoever they want to get their own way being told by one of it’s most important European allies, we will not allow nukes here and we will oppose them if they are placed in any other European country. How the Mighty have fallen. The once World Hegemon now an also ran..

    • occupybacon

      This kind of speeches were all around Europe during Cold War era and they will be… But many EU politicians who are though talking at USA are in fact CIA agents.

    Germany: US nuclear missiles must not be stationed in Germany, or anywhere in Europe.

    Poland and the Baltics: WE’LL TAKE THEM!!!
    Ukraine: Can I have some too?

  • Tommy Jensen

    No problem man.
    Poland, Ukraine, Denmark, Romania, Georgia, Belgium, Kosovo, Balticum are crazy to get our nukes.

    • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

      No, in no way, transfit, deployed, sailing through danish waters or flying though danish airspace or in any other way is nukes allowed inside Danish borders by its allies.

      But the trash in the danish gov would probally ignore that.

      And having nukes makes your a priority for nukes.

  • Jim Bim

    Germany together with the EU, NAT0, US , Canada and Puppet states just voted against a Russian draft resolution in UN to preserve the INF treaty.

  • Jaime

    I don’t believe what Germans say. One day they state one thing and the next the exact opposite. Germans lost their independence and everything else in 1945. Up until the 1990s, they more or less had some dignity. But the arrival of rabid US administrations -Clinton onwards- led to the toatl control of their vassals, Germany among them.

    First of all, the B61 nukes pictured above are ALREADY stationed in Europe. Germany and Italy, as a matter of fact. Why the fuck doesn’t Maas say something about those? I doubt the US ever moved them out of Turkish nuthouse in Incirlik either. Shouldn’t Maas be a little worried about those?

    Second of all, the US would by crying like a little bitch about how it must have intermediate-range nuclear missiles if we were in Europe. Because potential enemies – well, Russia – would be within intermediate range. Since we’re safely across either ocean and have little use for intermediate-range ballistic nuclear missiles, well then the God damn Russians can’t have them either. Because… well, ours are Freedom Nukes, and Russian nukes are just evil.

    Is the rest of the world really that fucking stupid that they can’t understand our clear, rational, morally-superior imperial logic in the U.S.? We’re the experts on thinking and stuff.

    Jesus Christ… when will you people just obey us once and for all?? Don’t make us nuke you to save you. Think of your children.

    Germany has NO control on what goes on on American bases within Germany since they are sovereign American pieces of soil…………period. Come to think of it, Germany has NO control over its land or borders either, when you take into account that Frau ( Frankfurt Schul )Merkel , the unconscionable psychopath has just opened the doors to another 1 million Jihadits ! Germany is only a name, the real Germany died in 1945.
