EU Ministers called to sign on to Pentagon’s nuclear strategy

According to NATO, Russia has “violated” the INF Treaty, and NATO will be withdrawing definitively from the Treaty on August 2, as it prepares to deploy ground-based intermediate range nuclear missiles with a range of between 500 and 5 500 kilometres in Europe. The INF Treaty was signed in 1987 by Presidents Gorbachev and Reagan.
In a new document, the commander of the Committee of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff confirms his intention to disarm his allies of their nuclear weapons. This means that the US President will be the only person able to push the nuclear button.
Major European powers have rejected the Russian proposal to maintain the INF Treaty while public opinion has been deliberately ignored on the issue.
The US nuclear doctrine is based on a dangerous concept of “flexibility” as the latest strategic document from the US Armed Forces, Nuclear Operations from June 11, written under the direction of the President of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, shows.
Despite Russian warnings that low-power nuclear weapons would set off a chain reaction which could lead to large-scale nuclear conflict, the American document states that “our nuclear forces offer the USA the capacity to pursue our own national objectives” which must be “diversified, flexible and adaptable” to a “wide range of adversaries, threats and contexts”.
The strategic document affirms that the use of nuclear weapons “can create the conditions for decisive results. In particular, the use of a nuclear weapon would fundamentally transform the context of a battle by creating the conditions which would enable the commanders to win the confrontation”.
Nuclear weapons would also enable the USA to “reassure their allies and partners” to “give up the idea of possessing their own nuclear weapons, thus participating in the objective of the United States, which is non-proliferation”.
According to the text, “the USA and certain selected NATO allies would be able to keep aircraft capable of carrying both nuclear and conventional weapons”
This is an admission that four countries of the EU which are officially non-nuclear – Italy, Germany, Belgium, Holland – and also Turkey, have actually been violating the non-proliferation Treaty. Not only are they storing US nuclear weapons, but may be involved in a nuclear attack under command of the Pentagon.
France abandoned its nuclear triad in 1996, which is the protection of land, sea and air vectors, and the United Kingdom has never had such weaponry. Only the United States, Russia and China enjoy this privilege today.
