Belgium and nuclear sharing

Belgium is one of the five European countries with US nuclear bombs on its soil. In today's light it might be interesting to briefly outline how those weapons of mass destruction got in my country and why it is so difficult to get rid of them.

Only gradually, nuclear weapons became a central part of NATO's military post-cold war strategy. In 2010 NATO proclaimed itself a 'nuclear alliance'. Today, the military alliance is waging a disinformation campaign with the false claim that the new Ban Treaty (TPNW) undermines the nuclear disarmament regime.

Militarism is on the rise. NATO is increasing its military spending. The EU is developing militarist structures and funding. Treaties and agreements have not prevented planned large scale investements in new nuclear arms. The international peace movement will have to deal with these dangerous developments.

Make Peace Great Again!
