A Nuclear Ecstasy Lab in Belgium, where the United States stores the majority of their weapons, was raided and shut down by authorities earlier this week
If you are someone who has been paying attention to the news (I wouldn’t blame you if not), then it’s apparent that nuclear warfare has never been a hotter topic than it is right now. Thanks to an ecstasy lab on a military base in Belgium, nuclear warfare just got hotter.
Nuclear Ecstasy Lab Raided in Belgium
According to the Times of Israel, Belgian police raided an illegal lab producing the rave drug ecstasy on an airbase that reputedly houses part of the United States nuclear arsenal in Europe.
Obviously it’s no secret that Europe is closer to World War III than at any point since The Cold War. NATO and Russia have each traded barbs and threatened nuclear annihilation on countless occasions over the past few months and the world could come to an end at any given second.
Knowing that, when you find out that the Kleine-Brogel base in Northeast Belgium, which is best known for housing US nuclear weapons, is actually focusing on producing MDMA instead of literally anything else besides that, it’s pretty concerning.
There are few things more troubling than the risk of a nuclear ecstasy lab.
Belgium has bootleg Walter White’s and Jesse Pinkman’s cooking up MDMA right next to the most powerful weapons in the history of mankind and honestly, it’s hard to fathom how you could let any kind of drug lab operate so closely to a bunch of nuclear weapons, let alone an ecstasy lab.
Can you imagine the disaster if some overstimulated pilot hopped in his jet to feel the wind in his hair and forgot he had a nuclear payload ready to go? Or hell, even a rave-gone-bad at the base where a few soldiers dip into their own supply (never get high on your own supply, shout out Biggie) and end up pushing a few wrong buttons and a bomb goes off, starting World War III?
At this point in 2022, that actually wouldn’t be too surprising.
As a country we can’t be thrilled that our allies have been so carefree with our instruments of destruction. We need our nation’s leaders to march up and/or take a bike ride over to Belgium and hold them accountable for this kind of nonsense.
Well okay then. Scratch the bike ride idea. It appears that we’re screwed regardless.
Why are we even letting Belgium store our nukes anyway? They’re mostly famous for waffles and Jean Claude Van Damme. Both of those things are cool, but I can’t help but feel like a slightly more serious country should be hosting our nukes.
Germans have never done anything bad before, right?
