With all the talk lately of "despicable Iran" and its nuclear program in the press lately, it's worth pausing and taking stock of the little-known probable nuclear powers that we never hear about.  First, let's begin with this article, and then note certain details it contains quite closely:

Europe's Five "Undeclared Nuclear Weapons States"

As the article notes, the recognized nations with nuclear weapons are the USA, Russia - these two powers having by far and away the most built-up nuclear and thermonuclear stockpiles - France, the United Kingdom, and China (these nations also having significant thermonuclear stockpiles, and Israel, India, Pakistan, and North Korea. These last three nations are known to have nuclear weapons, that is, the atom bomb, but not thermonuclear weapons (the much larger and more destructive hydrogen bomb), though in India's case a thermonuclear weapon would be possible and attainable.  Now, consider the position this puts Iran in: a thermonuclear power to the north (Russia), nuclear powers to the east (India, Pakistan, and China), and a nuclear power to the West (Israel).

Now, with that in mind, consider the heart of this article, with respect to the five undeclared nuclear states:

"While Iran's nuclear weapons capabilities are unconfirmed, the nuclear weapons capabilities of these five countries including delivery procedures are formally acknowledged.

"The US has supplied some 480 B61 thermonuclear bombs to five so-called "non-nuclear states", including Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey. Casually disregarded by the Vienna based UN Nuclear Watchdog (IAEA), the US has actively contributed to the proliferation of nuclear weapons in Western Europe.

"As part of this European stockpiling, Turkey, which is a partner of the US-led coalition against Iran along with Israel, possesses some 90 thermonuclear B61 bunker buster bombs at the Incirlik nuclear air base. (National Resources Defense Council, Nuclear Weapons in Europe , February 2005)   By the recognised definition, these five countries are "undeclared nuclear weapons states'."

Yes, you read that correctly, the USA has supplied thermonuclear bunker busting warheads - that's hydrogen bombs - to Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Turkey.

But there is one power in this mix that should raise one's attention. I have long argued in my books and on various interviews, that of all the suspected "nuclear" powers, Germany has been front and center. It has clearly developed, and sold, on the international market, uranium enrichment technologies, and was suspected of being the hidden partner behind South Africa's and Israel's development of nuclear weapons (see the 1980s New York Times book, The Nuclear Axis).  Note carefully what this article states:

"Among the five "undeclared nuclear states", "Germany remains the most heavily nuclearized country with three nuclear bases (two of which are fully operational) and may store as many as 150 [B61 bunker buster ] bombs" (Ibid). In accordance with "NATO strike plans" (mentioned above) these tactical nuclear weapons are also targeted at the Middle East.

"While Germany is not categorized officially as a nuclear power, it produces nuclear warheads for the French Navy. It stockpiles nuclear warheads (made in America) and it has the capabilities of delivering nuclear weapons. Moreover,  The European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company - EADS , a Franco-German-Spanish  joint venture, controlled by Deutsche Aerospace and the powerful Daimler Group is Europe's second largest military producer, supplying France's M51 nuclear missile. "(Emphasis added)

Yup, you read that right: Germany builds nuclear warheads for France, including its M51 missile. What's an M51 missile, you might ask? Well, it's a submarine-launched ICBM with a range of 9000 kilometers, according to this article:

French Sub-Launched M51 Missile Test-Fired

A submarine-launched ICBM, and Germany is building it for France. How convenient for France and Germany. And the world is worried about whatever nuclear popgun Iran might produce? Each of the named European nations has the ability to deliver their stockpiles of American tactical nukes, but more importantly, Germany produces nuclear warheads, and an ICBM, for France. The handwriting is on the wall, folks: Germany is an implicit thermonuclear power, with an implicit ability to deliver strategic thermonuclear weapons via ICBMs. That puts those remarks by German Defense Minister Thomas de Maziere, and his warning to Israel that I spoke about in last week's News and Views from the Nefarium, into a very interesting light indeed. Don't get me wrong. I'm not worried about Germany raining down thermonuclear destruction on anyone, nor about the French, Dutch, Belgians, Italians, or even the Turks doing so. But by the same token, I'm not all that worried about Iran doing so either, for the lesson is clear: if it tried, any one of these European powers could retaliate, and do so in overwhelming fashion. So let's everyone take a deep breath, and take a step back from the Apocalypse Theater.

    Another hidden bomb, of sorts: Hitler’s son

    I’ve got to ask why, 27 yrs after his death, is a story about Hitler’s possible son hitting ABC news and Yahoo? I can’t believe it’s that slow of a news day.

    • LSM on February 22, 2012 at 9:03 am

      I think this is just the tip of the iceberg (or a distraction from something more monumental)- just look at photos/film-footage of AH and look at photos of Angela Merkel- look REAL HARD- see any similarties?- if not, no-one has looked very hard (or want’s to look very hard)-

      Merkel (a former East-German) came out of NO-WHERE (or so thought)- must be a reason for it (see above under “look at photos…”)-

      then connect the dots (pixels)

  2. Thomas on February 20, 2012 at 11:24 pm

    I. The article impressed me as manipulative. It did not come out and say WHOSE bombs they were. The closest it came was the quotation from the Time article: “‘Nuclear bombs are stored on air-force bases in Italy, Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands — and planes from each of those countries are capable of delivering them.’ (‘What to Do About Europe’s Secret Nukes.’ Time Magazine, December 2, 2009)”

    A reader could get the impression that the bombs were under the control of the nations whose bases housed the weapons. But NATO bases have housed US nukes for decades. Housing the weapons is not the same as “being a nuclear power.” The article seems to me to want to create the impression that the countries housing the bombs actually control them. Am I missing something?

    You can probably add Australia to that list too, Dr Farrell..

    For the record, no Australian Government in the past up to the present has EVER publicly admitted to having a stockpile of Nuclear Weapons, either manufactured themselves, or, supplied as a finished product by the USA..

    However, I have a source (hate saying that but I don’t want to name names) that I went to school with, joined the Australian Army and then subsequently Military Intelligence that told me otherwise and that was back in the late 1980’s..
    Hear-say I know, but nevertheless when one looks at the facilities operated in the Australian Outback by Australian and Australian/US joint venture collaborations combined with the statistic that Australia hold almost 25% of the world’s know Uranium deposits, there could definitely be an argument made for such a claim..

    • MattB on February 21, 2012 at 2:35 am

      Yes I can confirm that Australia’s nuclear capability is a badly kept secret. Having been an officer in the Army I heard whispers about our underground nuclear and BIOTECH weapons programmes.

      I know someone (yes i really hate not being able to disclose the source) who is a cryogenic engineer, he has worked on an underground facility in Canberra that creates-yes creates biological weapons ‘entities’. He has also worked on an underground facility in the Northern Territory on a joint US/AUS nuclear launch facility.

      We bought the F-111 so as to have a medium range nuclear capacity. Had a very successful nuclear programme with the British in the 1960’s (we killed a lot of Native Australians in the process-see the story of Maralinga).

      We have very high tech nuclear medicine programmes, very strong physics research programmes and a well created ‘we don’t have nukes’ mirage in our community.

    And these European states have a bad rap sheet going back centuries and a bioody ones at that. Slavery ,killings for hell of it you name it. Iran or to give it it’s proper name Persia has a existance going back to Cyrus the Great so I definately believe is not in commiting suicide business it whats to live so all this saber ratling must stop.The war junkies must be put back in their cages for the safety of all life on this planet.

    “The crazies in the box” that Admiral Mullen referred to was Israel. More specifically, her “leaders”. They have the “Sampson Option”. That means if their house goes down, they’re taking everyone with them. In the past, with the “Liberty”, and other unknown incidents, they has been the continous screaming wheels, that are forever being greeced.
    While Greece is being wiped-off the map, without a discouraging word, from “their” tightly controlled, worldwide media grip. Anything coming-out is spun to their advantaged viewpoint.
    This is all prelude toward intent. With their proven track-record becoming reality, these crazies need to be put back into the box.
    But that genie is out, hungry for blood.
    As they so proudly hail – being their enemy is dangerous/being their friend is fatal.
    9/11 was inexorably tied to them. This became inertia, and it’s been building & spending that kenetic energy ever since.
    This system is tied to the Babylon Banksters, going way back.
    WW1 was planned. Part of that was to be the State of Israel, a Zionist State (even in name). WW1 is WW11 continued. An ongoing plan, with many parts. Derail this hellbound train off it’s bottom-line express tracks; stop its insatiable appeitite, a parasitical globalized mission that’s eating-up our planet’s life with fanatic frenzy.
    Stopping them is not negotiable. The die was cast too long ago.
    The time has come for do or die.

      So true and so obvious. Well said.

    Thank [insert name of your higher power] that there is nothing else to aggravate the situation other than borders and languages. Imagine if some [insert name of your higher power] were driving another aggravation among Israelis, Iranians, and Europeans! What a mess and apocalypse theater that would be. Wouldn’t it be interesting if the [insert name of your higher power] used his/her/its prophets to inspire an end of the world scenario AND if such prophets were calling down his/her/its name to justify the prophecies?

    • paul degagne on February 21, 2012 at 3:46 am

      “Justify the prophecies” — What’s the difference if I deliberately and INTENTIONALLY “set up” a process that ends in apocalypse OR that I am so UNCONSCIOUS or ignorant of contingency that my actions result in an apocalypse? (In the end the past or AGENCY doesn’t matter – Dead is dead!)

      I think one of many end results – a new Holocaust of the World is a very real possibility! (lets hope not?) I just don’t think it will be INTENTIONAL?

      DeSade wrote a story about a man who had to sacrifice himself in the commission of some evil CRIME he was committing. It was going to be the kind of crime that lives on or continues eternally in HISTORY.

      From what I understand this goes against the grain of SUPREME EGOISM. One would never sacrifice themselves or WOULD THEY? (If they were unconscious they might?)


      As for my own personal view of APOCALYPSE—- If I had the time I would much rather think over and contemplate what is written in Allan and Delair’s book – CATACLYSM!

      I prefer to stick with NATURE and let others such as yourself figure out the IMPOSSIBLE?

      • paul degagne on February 21, 2012 at 5:01 am

        i think I should clarify this “figure out the IMPOSSIBLE” expression a little more?

        I learned in school one foundational principle of Aristotelian logic is the ‘Law of Non-Contradiction.”

        I seem to be committing a crime here, ha, ha!

        So I will try this:

        I recently went back to intensely studying a former author who I used as my metaphorical mentor. (it works out that way) I am reading a survey of this author’s work by another professor who writes about him in these words:

        “… as a finder and re-assembler, has no equals and the result is that familiar ideas, theories and concepts announce themselves new-minted in his hands. As such his “originality” lies in his ability to —- make connections which have not previously been articulated; he not only tells us what we can see, but what we CANNOT SAY; he also tells us things we do not know, CANNOT SEE.” (capitals added for emphasis)

        So we cannot say or see?

        Now some would call this IMPOSSIBLE!

  7. Neru on February 20, 2012 at 7:31 am

    Yikes, Belgium!! Belgium is so tiny if one of these would explode there is no Belgium anymore. Not that its surprising since our minister of defence is a warmonger first class. Do you know where in Belgium these are stashed?
