US ships powerful new nuke to Europe, heightening tensions–83 Hiroshimas —

83 Hiroshimas — New nuclear bombs coming to Europe and UK

Since last December, the United States has begun to replace its nuclear weapons on European soil with more modern ones. It is replacing the B61-3, B61-4 and B61-7 thermonuclear bombs with the B61-12, which has become the main US and NATO air-launched nuclear weapon.

Boeing designed the bomb’s new guided-tailkit, giving it additional maneuverability and the appearance of more precision. But, it’s a nuclear weapon, and has different yields, from 0.3kt to 50kt.

These bombs can detonate beneath the Earth’s surface, increasing their destructiveness against underground targets to the equivalent of a surface-burst weapon with a yield of 1,250 kilotons––the equivalent of 83 Hiroshima bombs. 

These nuclear weapons are coming to Europe in a time of heightened nuclear tension on the continent, and even as the majority of people in European host countries want to remove nuclear weapons and join the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

American B61-12 nuclear bombs head to Europe

Combined with the lack of transparency around nuclear sharing, this moment raises questions about whether citizens in the host states would agree to be complicit if these weapons are ever used.

 Even if the bombs are American and the US retains launch authority, they would most likely be dropped by Europeans. If the US decides to use its nuclear weapons located in Germany, the warheads are loaded onto German planes and a German pilot drops them. 

ICAN is a broad, inclusive campaign, focused on mobilizing civil society around the world to support the specific objective of prohibiting and eliminating nuclear weapons.

It is a free-fall bomb equipped with state-of-the-art navigation systems and a versatile warhead that can be configured in four strengths, 0.3 kiloton (kt), 1.5 kt, 10 kt and 50 kt depending on the target, making it a low to medium-yield weapon. This type of weapon is referred to as a ‘first-strike’ weapon.

Having a tactical nuclear weapon with higher precision and lower yield could make politicians less reluctant to use them in conventional operations and puts us on an increasingly dangerous front line of confrontation between NATO and Russia.

These new nuclear weapons will replace existing ones on the soil of Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany and Turkey.

But Washington has announced that it will also deploy them on UK soil; this time it is not a replacement for more outdated ones, as it reported in 2008 that its nuclear weapons had been withdrawn from the RAF;

now it appears that it wants to put new nuclear weapons in the empty bunkers at Lakenheath again.

All this deployment of nuclear weapons represents a violation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

53 years after the entry into force of the NPT, we see that it has not served to achieve nuclear disarmament.

The NPT prohibits nuclear-weapon States Parties from transferring nuclear weapons to any other State and prohibits non-nuclear-weapon States Parties from receiving nuclear weapons or from manufacturing or acquiring them.

Just two years ago, in January 2021, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) entered into force.

Defense Minister Margarita Robles: “proud to sacrifice the Spanish, militarily, economically and physically, to US criminals”

The new TPNW outlaws nuclear weapons and makes it illegal for states that sign the TPNW to possess, develop, deploy, test, use or threaten to use nuclear weapons.

However, for the Spanish government, for example, the NPT remains the “cornerstone of the international nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament regime”, considering that this treaty is an adequate and sufficient instrument for nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament.

This is just a deceitful excuse, claiming idiotically that the TPNW treaty is ‘not necessary’, as the NPT already exists. Because of course as part of NATO Spain ignores the NPT, as do all 30 NATO countries under US control.

The facts do not support the Spanish government’s position. In addition to the deployment of new weapons in Europe, the new NATO Strategic Concept 2022, approved in Madrid last summer, states that “NATO’s deterrence and defence posture is based on an appropriate mix of nuclear, conventional and missile defence assets (…) and that it will take all necessary steps to ensure the credibility, effectiveness, integrity and security of the nuclear deterrence mission”.

In short, it seems that the NPT is only defended when it comes to imposing nuclear weapons restrictions on countries outside the NATO orbit (the “others”), that compliance with the NPT is not applicable to either the US or NATO, while both re-emphasise deterrence and the nuclear threat.

On the contrary, the safest position, the position that would best reflect citizens’ aspirations to completely destroy nuclear weapons, is for Spain, for example, to decide to join the TPNW, and for the Spanish government to attend meetings of TPNW states parties, to show genuine support for denuclearisation.

U.S. fails to even respond to Russia’s request to remove its Nuclear Weapons from Europe: Will deliver new ones from May, courting World War 3

The U.S. Air Force, in cooperation with the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), has completed the first end-to-end qualification flight tests of the new B61-12 nuclear gravity bomb on the B-2 bomber.

As they leave the factory, the new US nuclear bombs will be delivered to the US Air Force, which in turn will send them to their bases in various European countries to replace the B61s already deployed there. .

Its the equivalent of Russia deploying nuclear missiles in Canada, Mexicom Hawaii and Cuba, say the Russians, putting Armageddon on hair trigger alert just minutes away from Moscow. What’s the point? The US economy depends on lunatic arms spending. What could possibly go wrong?

The Pentagon practically laughed at Moscow’s pleas for serious peace negotiations and in a fit of insane degenerate hubris instead ordered endless, huge and still growing NATO war exercises on Russia’s borders. With nuclear capable B52 bombers flying just tens of kilometers from their Black Sea coast.

Imagine if Russia flew its nuclear bombers 10 kms from New York!

Then it’s ‘ OH HOW HORRIBLE! WAR CRIMES!’ when Russia invades Ukraine (and the US Military Industrial Complex hits the jackpot).

The point is that Russia is still warning that deploying new nuclear missiles on its borders is an ‘Existential Issue’ and a Red Line for them.

But Russia cannot fight the west alone, except by firng its vast nuclear arsenal and brand new ‘unstoppable’ hypersonic missiles, which could destroy the planet many times over.

Both China and Russia have relatively limited conventional forces (just one aircraft carrier and one or 2 overseas bases each, for example, the US has 750 such bases, bristling with missiles.).

However Putin is quoted as saying “Without Russia we don’t need a planet”.


US gives no response to Russia’s proposal to return nuclear weapons to its soil – MFA

The U.S. F-15s, F-35s and B-52s recently deployed to Europe are equipped to drop B61-12 tactical nuclear bombs.

TASS February 17, 2022 The United States has provided no response to Russia’s proposal to bring back nuclear weapons to its soil and refrain from further deploying them outside its territory, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement posted on its website on Thursday, outlining Russia’s response to the US reply on security guarantees.

“In its document, the United States did not respond to such an element of the package of our proposed measures as returning nuclear weapons deployed outside its territory to its national soil and refraining from further deploying them outside its national territory, and confined itself to mentioning the need to address the problem of non-strategic nuclear weapons on the platform of a strategic dialogue, without taking into account the specifics of their location and other factors affecting the security of the parties,” the document reads.

As the Russian Foreign Ministry also pointed out, the issues of non-strategic nuclear weapons cannot be discussed without resolving the issue of not deploying them in NATO’s non-nuclear member states.

“We would like to make clear that our proposals deal with the need to resolve the problem that US nuclear weapons capable of striking targets on Russian territory are present on the territory of some NATO non-nuclear member states in violation of the Nuclear Weapons Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

As they leave the factory, the new US nuclear bombs will be delivered to the US Air Force, which in turn will send them to their bases in various European countries to replace the B61s already deployed there. .

This should also embrace eliminating infrastructure for quickly deploying such weapons in Europe and terminating NATO’s practice of conducting training and drills for handling these weapons, in which the NATO non-nuclear member states are involved,” the statement says.

The U.S. has recently deployed B-52 bombers and F-15 and F-35 multirole combat aircraft to Europe

The B61-12 bombs ARE deployed in other countries, especially in countries geographically close to Russia, from which they will be used to arm fighter planes, such as the F-35.

In Italy, the Aviano and Ghedi bases have been restructured to receive F-35 fighter jets armed with new nuclear bombs. At Ghedi, 30 Italian F-35 fighter jets would be deployed, ready for attack, by US order, with 60 B61-12 nuclear bombs.

It is not excluded that, in addition to their deployment in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands, the American B61 12 nuclear bombs will also be deployed in Poland – a country whose air force has participated for years in the nuclear war maneuvers organized by NATO – as well as in other Eastern European countries.

NATO fighter jets deployed in the Baltic republics, on the edge of the Russian border, can also be armed with US B-61-12 nuclear bombs.

Nor is it excluded that the new US nuclear bombs will also be deployed in Asia and the Middle East against China and Iran.

Despite being classified as “non-strategic nuclear weapons”, such bombs, deployed at points close to targets, would have offensive capabilities similar to those of strategic weapons – such as the nuclear warheads of intercontinental ballistic missiles.
