A statement issued by the Turkish Ministry of Defense regarding the ownership of the Incirlik base and all the weapons systems at its disposal, is setting-off MAJOR alarm bells inside the USA at this hour!
The statement asserts "Incirlik base with all its weapons systems belongs to Turkey" and they explicitly mention the US-Turkey Defense Treaty as their proof; apparently in an effort to somehow justify grabbing US NUCLEAR BOMBS at Incirlik!
The announcement came as a blow because US Pentagon officials themselves did not expect any Turkish moves or statements involving the Incirlik base.
The announcement by the Turkish Ministry of Defense does not simply involve the Incirlik base but refers to the Turkey-US Defense Treaty.
The Turkish media clearly state that this is Ankara's response to the recognition of the Armenian Genocide.
However, the fact that Turkish President Recypt Erdogan dared to raise the issue of Incirlik along with the weapons systems inside the base has caused alarm.
It is BELIEVED that the US withdrew 2/3 of the nuclear bombs from the base for reasons of "modernization" several months ago.
This cannot be confirmed because the USA does not publicly disclose locations of its nuclear weapons.
