Turkey is a Stupid Place for US to Store Nuclear Weapons

By Dawn’s Early Light was based on William Prochnau’s novel, Trinity’s Child.

An aside note:  It’s the things we don’t know that frighten me the most.  I discovered some relatively unknown history about Turkish involvement with U.S. nuclear weapons while reading former Secret Service officer, Gary Byrne’s, Clinton tell-all.  Talking about his Air Force days as he establishes his his own credibility and character early in the book, Byrne writes:

“Arriving at Murtad, I learned that AFSP there had caught rogue Turkish officers trying to push an American F-104 Starfighter with a loaded nuke onto the flight line so they could steal a nuke and bomb Greece. Many Turks bitter about the Greco-Turkish War of 1919– 22 wanted a flash point to ignite a new war. I believe this was secretly why JFK took the nukes out of Turkey in 1962. Turks simply hate Greeks. We joked to each other, “Hey, if you’re not careful, I’ll tell the Turks you’re Greek!””

  1. gee , you think, i got news for you, turkey will use these nukes to give to ISIS, and we already know who isis is, USA, ISRAEL, UNITED KINGDOM, AND THE SUADIS, to use aganist syria, because you as*holes failed in syria, not only syria but the rest of the world, point your finger at israel for all this, period

  2. Let’s assume this “coup” in turkey was successful. Access to our base was closed as the reports told us. That would mean a faction has taken over the government, and our base, with nukes on site. Now assume some go missing, like the MH370 Malasian air plane…
    Everyone would have an alibi, the US blames Turkey, Turkey says it wasn’t in control, the world wonders what group now has a few nukes. Would make a great book if it wasn’t so plausible.
