    I read that the US is storing atomic bombs at the Incirlik Air Base in Turkey. Am I right to worry.

    It is always a cause for concern. But I'm sure they have an emergency protocol at that base. It has had missiles and/or nukes since the late 50s, I believe. So there must be some sort of "go" team from AF Security stationed all over the area.  Also, I can't imagine Erdogan being that stupid as to provoke the U.S.  But you never know.  The man is a nut.

    I was surprised to hear that they still have the weapons there. I thought we removed them after the Cuban Missile Crisis.

      Hi CJ. I see your point but in the successful event of a coup. Things could change so quickly.
