US and Canadian military began joint exercises in the Arctic

19

To practice combat skills, the US and Canadian military began joint anti-aircraft exercises in the Arctic. The maneuvers will continue until March 26.


This was reported by the press service of the United Aerospace Defense Command of North America (NORAD).

The place for the maneuvers was the northern regions of Canada. During the exercises, the US and Canadian Air Forces will work out the interaction of their units and the skills to perform combat missions.

Shortly before this, the President of the United States Joe Biden asked the head of the Canadian government, Justin Trudeau, to increase the Canadian defense budget in connection with new challenges. In addition, he announced the need to reform NORAD.

This organization emerged about 60 years ago, uniting the United States and Canadian Air Forces. Its main task is to protect the airspace of both countries from the penetration of combat aircraft and cruise missiles of a potential enemy, which was originally considered the Soviet Union.

The NORAD Commander is appointed on the basis of a joint order from the leaders of the United States and Canada.

This defensive system consists of orbiting satellites, as well as ground-based radars and air force bases, located mostly in the northern Canadian provinces and in Alaska.

        Got it, not a doo-cancer.
        This is quite tolerant.
        If not, or cut off (now it's free, at the expense of the Ministry of Defense) bells! laughing
        Flag in their hands! (Rainbow)
        Drum on the belly!
        And a pipe in your mouth!

        Come on, get out of our Arctic.
        In Texas, snow fell in winter, almost half of the staff did not freeze to death, and they gathered in the Arctic.

      It has lived and thrived since 1971, when President Nixon untied the dollar from gold and tied it to aircraft carriers. am

      Biden is walking by leaps and bounds: for convincingness, he crushed the construction of pipelines
      replenishment of the Canadian budget, including its defense part.

    One more point, from the heart, they lick us, which is natural, let them lick, we are in the subject. Only one little thing - I am proud of our scientists, yes, of course there are individuals, but they are not comparable with ours.

    Surprised, a collar of satellite navigation was hung on a small northern fluffy animal. So he is an infection, from Svalbard straight to Greenland and from there on his four to Canada. Where do Arctic foxes come from in Svalbard. ZFI Novaya Zemlya? Probably it's not a simple joke! Such a joke, but every joke has its own share of the joke; they are not looking there.

    Shortly before that, President of the United States Joe Biden had asked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to increase the Canadian defense budget.

    First, Biden canceled the construction of the pipeline, depriving Canadian citizens of work, and now he is asking for an increase in the defense budget. On good Canada, send Baden, but unfortunately Trudeau is a liberal

      But Trudeau's parents were cheerful, not only were noted in Murmansk, but the commandant himself was friends.

    In Canada, in fact, you should not be afraid. Their population is scanty, and the territory is larger than that of the United States. And they are not of interest in military terms.

    So I say, he is not a homo sapiens man, but a homo teapotus.
    The animal does not have a jeepies and an augmented reality helmet,
    as a pilot, he does not need a fu35m. Yes, and they have the "Shangen zone"
    since then, when a person not only did not know such words, in general
    did not know how to talk.
