Nonsense. I would like to see them try and write one line of code! They need the knowledge to interact with the technology. Not how to write it or subvert it.

I can guarantee you that turkey could be kicked out of NATO tomorrow and nothing would change. The money, influence, perks that turkey gets for hosting these bases has nothing to do with NATO.

In short no. Any British troops there would be there as British troops and not part of NATO. Hence they would have no NATO protection, meaning article 5 would not be invoked.

The US is almost exactly like Europe. 51 individual countries with a somewhat overriding federal government. Under the constitution states are almost seen as individual countries.

There would be a few nuclear armed bombs lying on the seabed waiting to rust away? Or more likely quietly salvaged by the US to take a look at them.
