During the coalition talks between the Social Democratic parties and the Greens, Ischinger warned of the consequences of removing American atomic bombs from Germany. According to him in an interview with the DPA agency, the adoption of such a decision will severely hit the security of Europe.
If Berlin agrees to get rid of US atomic bombs, then the Polish government will insist on placing weapons on its territory. Ischinger admitted that Warsaw’s active role in NATO’s nuclear plans would provoke a reaction from Russia that he does not even want to think about.
However, German society did not share the point of view of its foreign minister. They are confident that Ischinger needs to stop perceiving Russia as a country of the former USSR, and the location of atomic bombs on German territory poses an even greater threat than their absence.
“Ischinger is still a Cold War supporter to the core. This is from him and rushing. He has the same ideas about how to behave with Russia as in Soviet times, ”- Serp8.
“That is, for the sake of the Poles we need to offer ourselves as a target for the first strike!” – Leporello.
“Europeans, who really still think they can emerge victorious from a nuclear war, do not have everything at home,” – Parabel.
“So NATO is already at the Russian border – under the pretext that it is a defense against Iran,” – arnolsi.
There are currently 20 American atomic bombs at the Buchel airbase. In the event of the outbreak of war, they can be dropped by Tornado bombers, which are in service with the Bundeswehr.
