German Nuke?


“A research reactor for making weapons-grade uranium has gone into production in Germany,” reported (June 11).

The report continued, “Berlin now has sufficient weapons-grade material at its disposal to build its own atomic bombs. … German politicians and military experts have recently and repeatedly made known their intention of achieving control of atomic weapons. Germany is bound by treaty to renounce either building or possessing nuclear, biological or chemical (nbc) weapons of any kind. …

“German and Austrian critics of the atomic reactor, who protested at the opening celebrations, fear that its establishment creates the conditions for Germany’s bid for the atomic bomb.”
