Not sure about invulnerability: the US Navy conducts anti-sabotage exercises at its military bases

The United States launched a naval anti-terrorism exercise aimed at preparing to counter potential security threats at military installations. The maneuvers will take place from 6 to 17 February, codenamed "Citadel Shield - Solid Curtain 2023".

If you live near a naval base such as Kitsap, Bremerton, or Everett and you hear sirens or gunfire at those sites this week, it's not an emergency.

- US military-thematic resources warn.

Based on a US Navy press release, it is said that a wide variety of first responders may be involved in the exercise. Therefore, citizens should not worry if they notice an active movement of special vehicles or a blockage of the roadway next to one of the objects.

It is also said that Americans living near naval naval bases can hear the sounds of explosions and announcements of alarms over the loudspeaker. According to the command, this simulation is an important part of the exercise and does not pose a threat to the civilian population.

Based on the foregoing, it becomes obvious that these maneuvers are of an anti-sabotage nature: imitation of explosions inside the facility, cordoning off the roadway, and the use of rapid reaction forces.

Apparently, against the background of the current geopolitical tensions in the Pentagon, they are no longer so confident in the "invulnerability" of their military facilities. Therefore, we focused on improving their security level.

    Apparently, against the backdrop of the current geopolitical tensions, the Pentagon is no longer so confident in the "invulnerability" of its military facilities.

    Strange conclusion. Confident - not sure, the exercises are carried out by everyone and always. It's part of the army routine.

    The Chinese Winipanda showed what the US air defense system is worth. Passage yard, and if a "rubber bonba" hung under the ball? .Hung for quite a long time 1990 hours. And why did they remove the air defense around Murmansk before that. Just at that time, the all-round radar was removed

      Yeah, they didn’t warn you before, they sneered like that. And then suddenly worried? There, in the states of those, curfews are already being announced with might and main, the population is on edge, there is nothing to reassure. So you have to warn, otherwise it will be like a 2008 panic when some smart guy blurted out that the Russians attacked Georgia wassat And xx "ly they won't send a motorbot, they'll just sell it to whoever asks ... Petrov and Bashirov tongue

    Such exercises are conducted at all bases, both naval and land, at strategic and high-risk facilities in various countries. To be completely (?) confident in the "invulnerability of objects" is precisely such teachings. Although being completely confident in something is too self-confident, because. any accident can cross out this confidence. But you need to be prepared.

    Weird title for an article.
    It turns out that in order to be sure of invulnerability, should exercises and training be cancelled?
    And with the teachings, it doesn’t always go smoothly ...

    Mexico is nearby, and Ukrainian Stingers have already appeared there, and it’s not a fact that there are only Stingers there. It’s enough to arrange a big broads dope. And despite the fact that there is now a storm - it is quite real. EVEN without the participation of China or the Russian Federation ...

    With the mess that's going on at the mattress borders, I wouldn't be sure of anything at all. Anything can be dragged across the border, including compact special warheads, poisonous substances, etc.

    Exercises are carried out regardless of whether they are sure or not sure.

      Of course they do, but order at the border is also not superfluous.
