Turkish Prosecutors Raid Incirlik Airbase Housing US Warplanes And 50 Nuclear Bombs

Tyler Durden's picture

The saga surrounding the Turkish Incirlik air base, which is not only the headquarters to the US 39th Air Base Wing but also vaults over 50 B1 nuclear bombs, and is critical to all US missions not only against ISIS but the entire middle east continues. Moments ago, Turkey's state-run news agency says seven prosecutors, charged with investigating a foiled coup, have entered the Incirlik Air Base.

A Turkish brigadier general at the base has already been detained for his alleged role in Friday's uprising.

On Saturday, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said that Turkish airspace was closed due to the coup attempt in the country. US media reported that the Incirlik base in southern Turkey has been left without electricity and local authorities prevented movement to and from the base. Air operations from the base have also been suspended. On Sunday, the US-led coalition resumed flights from the Incirlik airbase.

The former commander of the base was accused by Ankara of involvement in the attempted coup. The United States rejected asylum application of Gen. Bekir Ercan Van.

In July 2015, Turkey agreed to open up Incirlik to US manned and unmanned aircraft to conduct anti-terror operations in Syria against Daesh.

It is unclear as of this moment, what the Turkish "probe" is seeking.

Only the most beautiful  "silver lining" to this whole mess the United States of "Fucktards" could find itself in!!!

I’d like to see the Turks raiding the NATO headquarters in Brussels.

THAT would be a hoot!   ;-)

Not to worry..

Golem is a NATO ally and friend to all.

He protects Herr Merkel from the barbarian hordes and never made a dime on stolen ISIS terror oil.

I am confident that Obama's “Tremendous Trannie” brigade of Marines are safeguarding all of the nukes that have no business being there in the first place.

“The United States rejected asylum application of Gen. Bekir Ercan Van.”

His problem is that he was not born or was transformed into a radical islamist, else he would be given welfare payments, housing aid, food stamps and relocated to Kokomo, Indiana.

"Tremendous Trannie brigade "

I can just see it.  "Well, we thought there was 50 here... maybe it was 40?"

The US has Nukes in Subs, On Ships, in Silos, in the Air ~~~

“Why the fuck do they need them Stored in Turkey ??????????”

To piss off our Russian colleagues.

And my Social Security payments because i swear to God i will vote for...

And my FSA status and goodies because i swear to God i will... oh wait, they have no idea this is happening.


Countrybunkererd's picture

Because we couldn't put them with the rest in Romania, Hungary, Germany, Italy, France, Belgium, Holland, UK...

That isn't enough deterrence, so we needed a LESS stable country?  Was it more for Public Relations than deterrence?  An airbase, sure, I understand, a NUCLEAR ARSENAL at that airbase, not so much.  Lets see, i need to drive into the hood, so I will take 2 9mm pistols, an AR-15 AND MY GOLD COINS!!!!!

Not the first time.


Jupiter missiles in Turkey were part of the Cuban Missile Crisis.  We removed them....while admitting no such thing to the damn public, of course.

All your base are very belong to us.

Well whaddya know? It seems the Gulen, the man Erodgan claims was behind the coup donated between $500,000 and $1 million to the Clinton Foundation. Gulen's followers have also sought favors via Huma Abedin. It sure is a small world.

Why indeed...


Umm, because Israel needed it as part of the Samson Option?


Just a wild guess.

And why the fuck do you need free fall bombs when cruise missiles will do the job.

Calmyourself's picture

Excellent question;  why B61's when tomahawks from offshore do the same job and more securely because with nukes cost is no object..

McCormick No. 9's picture

These are old bombs for the B-52's that were to fly from Turkey deep into Russian airspace and then drop them on Russian cities in Southern Russia. They've been there for years- decades even. Everyone forgot about them. SNAFU city, only now, it's a nuclear SNAFU. It was bound to happen. fail-safe, and all that. I think it's funny, in an "Oh fuck, nuclear war just got a lot more inevitable" sort of way.

Chess pieces, bargaining chips, whatever. You can't play the game without 'em.

Regardless of delivery, a nuke is still a nuke.


TeraByte's picture

ISIL didn´t need to buy them from the remote Pakistan, when Erdogan instead can deliver them just across the border and to any other moderate opposition group too.

So now Obama's military isn't even capable of defending it's own Nuclear weapons. We all saw this coming. How is it possible that this wasn't planned for? Reinforcements should have been flown in on Friday night - fuck Erdogan's "no fly zone". This is Benghazi all over again - administration fails to act to protect American assets.

The location of nuclear devices is SUPPOSED to be a secret.  Why did that leak out?

onewayticket2's picture

ISIS will soon have nukes............big ones.......


why is this not the biggest story of the year?

BlindMonkey's picture

Bcause it was all part of "the plan".

walküre's picture

I'm pretty sure "Big Nukes in hand of ISIS" is bad for stawks. Can't have that. Not yet.

unless, we print them a few trillion dollar coins in exchange.....

...Because Hillary had it stored on her super-secret server in her bathroom.....

I forgot.  it's an Election year.  back to roses and sunshine.

And here's the password for her server: password

She is, after all, incredibly saavy about security.

LOL!  More like "welcome123."

Tom Servo's picture

I think it was "1234" which also, happens to be the combination to my luggage...


LiteBeeer's picture

12345 - referring to - Space Balls The Movie. The same combination was used to open the gate of the supposed air shield to suck the air off their plant using a giant dust sucker-transformer. Of course the reference here is that there is a dome above the plane earth surface. They know there is no space. The earth is no ball. The film title is another reference to program minds to believe in fake space and ball earth and promote sex by directing the mind to a pair of testicles.

Sorry to have went off topic, beg your pardon, please move on with the coup.

Even without the launch codes they can still be hacked. Refer to Spies like us, source programmable guidance.

“...Because Hillary had it stored on her super-secret server in her bathroom.....”

Although the WAN connection was wide open as a gaping crack whore, I hear she safeguarded policy secrets with encrypted “cold-spot” wi-fi  local connection tampons that she and Huma kept in isolated zones where no men have ventured for years.


McCormick No. 9's picture

That's a cold-spot all right.. frigid even.

californiagirl's picture

Hopefully our military is not incompetent and immediately move the nuclear weapons upon initiation of the coup attempt, or if they knew it was coming, they were moved in advance.  If they did not, then there are 2 possibilities. Either they are incompetent,  or 2, this event is an intentional "redistribution" of nuclear weapons. 

Stuck on Zero's picture

The best way to keep the nukes out of the hands of Erdogan is to set them off.

gougeonit's picture

Or they thought that there boy was going to be staying at the white palace. 
Sucks to be double crossed, I have a funny feeling Erdogan is likely to suffer from a lead headache in the not so distant future

cougar_w's picture

"Our military" probably doesn't control them, physically. Turkey is a NATO ally. We might control the launch codes (might!) but the facilities are sovereign to Turkey and they can probably do as they like. 

McCormick No. 9's picture

Gravity bombs, not missiles. No launch codes. All you have to do is throw these fuckers out of the window.

McCormick No. 9's picture

They were all busy putting on their makeup for the drag-queen show on base.
