US Allies Threatened By Russian Nukes Under Biden
Allies in Europe want American nukes to defend against Russia, Republicans and defense experts say
Russia's growing nuclear arsenal and President Biden's inaction on nuclear weapons may put American allies in grave danger, Republicans and defense experts say.
Rep. Don Bacon (R., Neb.), a co-chair of the House Baltic caucus, said that a weakened nuclear stance would also hurt other European allies.
"Our European allies understand the importance of countering Russia and China’s growing threats and that a strong alliance is required to counter both simultaneously," Bacon said. "The push for unilateral reductions in our nuclear force is not only misguided, but it will undermine our ability to maintain a strong, credible alliance with our European partners and hurt NATO’s ability to deter Russian and Chinese aggression."
