#1 When are we going to "re-source" our nukes out of Turkey. The nukes have been openly touted as hostages by Erdogan.

#2 Erdogan calling our nukes his hostages reminds me of that scene in A Bronx Tale, 'Now youse can't leave.' He should be careful of what he wishes for.

#3 Next time you leave your nukes in another country, please devise a tamper-proof storage allowing them to be remotely armed and blown up.

#4 Recent development: U.S., Turkish, Spanish, Qatari service members from across the base render a salute during the Ataturk Memorial Day Ceremony Nov. 10, 2019, at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey. The ceremony brought members from across the base together to honor Ataturk, the founder and first president of modern Turkey.
Can anyone provide proof positive that Incirlik houses nuclear weapons?

#5 It would be very hilarious if the pits were taken away and at some point Turkey seizes a heavily guarded bunker full of empty bomb casings.

#6 IIRC nukes need to be routinely rotated for periodic maintenance. Something about He-3. It'd be a shame if the nukes being rotated were replaced with dummies.

#7 True. And how would Yippy deliver them if he seizes takes them? Air? Sub? Artillery? Nope.

F-16s are nuclear capable. The hard part is getting the arming code. The Turks don't have them.

#9 Good point, I was actually thinking theater. I think the Juice might have something to say about that
