WikiLeaks impact on NATO defence in Europe

The USA diplomatic cables released into the cyberspace by WikiLeaks without authorization has also revealed the US/NATO plan to 'defend' the Baltic states which closely border on Russia. As expected, Russia has been irked. Earlier, the leaks unexpectedly exposed the locations of the USA's 200 tactical nukes in Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Turkey. The USA-led NATO is also said to be planning its defence against a resurgent Iran on the southeast flank of continental Europe. Earlier, the US was alarmed by the UK's deep cut of defence spending.
