US bombs at Turkish airbase complicate rift over Syria invasion

An estimated 50 nuclear bombs stored at a US airbase in Turkey
have become potential bargaining chips in the tense relationship
between Washington and Ankara in the wake of the Turkish offensive into
Syria. The presence of B61 nuclear gravity bombs at İncirlik airbase, which is
about 100 miles from the Syrian border and which the US air force shares
with its Turkish counterpart, is complicating Washington’s
calculations.
