    Our presence in the middle east is a losing proposition......we will never influence their politics or religion.

    We learned in WW2 that air power alone doesn’t win wars. Both allies and axis attempted to bomb each other in to submission to no avail. Japan was an extreme circumstance and it’s no longer viable.

    We also learned that occupying and trying to rebuild nations with different ideologies than we have as a nation......doesn't work.

    "Turkey holding 50 US nuclear bombs 'hostage' at air base, report says"

    I was a Nuclear Weapons Specialist in the USAF and worked with a number of fellow airman that had been stationed at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey. At my location I worked around the same type of B61 nukes that are at Turkey and a few other types as well. I am aware of a number of things on the subject of this Fox report. The report in question has more truth to it than many would realize that goes back before the current situation there. Without going into details that are likely still classified I would say that there are concerns about Turkey and measures have been taken to avoid something very bad happening with the nukes in question there.

    I imagine that anyone attempting to make off with those devices would join a fresh glowing patch of dust from an improvised dirty bomb where there used to be a nuclear storage facility.

    San Antonio!
    We also learned you can't win wars without it!

    This discussion is moot, however, as the OP's article is pure hogwash!

    Trust me, I know.
