The United States of America has placed nuclear weapons in foreign countries with NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) bases in clear violation of the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty it urged these same countries to sign. Italy is one of them. Rainews24 (news channel from Italy) has investigated this and put out a video on the subject. The video is in Italian with translation to English. Following that there is a little more of the story.
Those embarrassing ninety nukes in the backyard
by Mario Sanna, Angelo Saso, Maurizio Torrealta
Despite the deep secret on this issue, an American non governmental organization, NDRC (Natural Resources Defense Council), has published the map of the atomic devices in Europe and in Italy: about 480 atomic bombs in Europe and 90 in Italy.
Rainews24 has interviewed in the United States Mr Hans M. Krinstensen, the author of the report on the atomic bombs in Europe for NRDC, and also some citizens of Aviano who have sued the government of the United States at civil law asking to remove the atomic weapons in Aviano.
According to them, in fact, those weapons are “dangerous and in contrast with the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty that Italy has signed and ratified and that sanctions the obligation for our country not to host nuclear devices and for a nuclear state like the United States, the obligation not to deploy such weapons outside its territory”. Is it impossible to get rid of atomic devices in our country?
