[Nettime-nl] secret documents on US nuclear force in the Netherlands published


-------------Please circulate widely--------

Amsterdam, 4 October 2000

Welcome to contrast.org
situated in the Home of the Free

We welcome both cadidates, Al Gore and G.W. Bush to inspect { HYPERLINK http://www.contrast.org/onkruit }
At this site they will be able to read how the US nuclear force is abusing Dutch territory to deter unknown enemies, whilst putting the lives of surrounding inhabitants at risk.

Read all about it in:
752 MUNSS/LGWR Maintenance Support
"Past Inspection Reports"
LGWR SSgt Shelton
http://www.contrast.org/onkruit/dnsi.html

Some highlights from the published inspection reports:

Personnel is not always qualified. One of them was found to be (medicinally) drugged, which made him liable to cause severe damage to a weapons system.

One of the “lessons” drawn is that inadequate implementation of instructions led to near accidents. A Weapon Loading crew was conducting a loading operation when they failed to closely follow the specific technical data. A weapon was subsequently incorrectly hung and later fell on the runway, cracking the case.
“This accident could have had international repercussions. We were lucky.”
{ HYPERLINK http://www.contrast.org/onkruit/lessons.html#12 }

Personnel is being informed of the augmented risk of cancer as a result of handling nuclear weapons. Female personnel are told to report immediately when they are pregnant, to avoid damage to the unborn.

“No bombs, but bread”, was the slogan that Mr.Kok yelled years ago. At that time, Mr Kok was the president of the biggest Dutch Federation of Trade Unions (FNV). Now he is the Dutch prime-Minister ({ HYPERLINK http://www.minaz.nl })

We believe that it is vital to publish these documents given the fact that the Dutch governement has persistently refused to answer parliamentary questions about the presence of nuclear weapons on the Dutch air force base Volkel.
