      .


      Once upon a Time the formation of the National Guard, according to the law, was not involved in military operations outside the borders of the United States. In this regard, many young people from wealthy segments of the population preferred to enter the National Guard in order to avoid being sent to Vietnam. Among them, during the years of the Vietnam War, prominent politicians should point to George W. Bush.

      The maneuvers themselves are half-troubles, but the fact that they are being transported under the guise of container ships, ostensibly to provide training, but then, for some reason, leave all this in the Baltic States, cannot but strain! And such exercises have been ongoing there for over a decade!

      It is interesting that they use the legend of the exercises without particularly straining with imagination - the enemy of the multinational forces of NATO is some country Botnia (as in 2013 at the exercises "Strong Jazz"), which attacks Estonia (Latvia, Lithuania) and seizes part of the territory. NATO, faithful to the principle of collective defense, is sending Rapid Reaction Forces to the region of regional conflict, and there is always a slip of the tongue that this Botonia has significant reserves of oil and gas. So that everyone would catch up and get used to the idea of ​​which country is really meant ...

      However, we do not bathe the same and weratify some Estland on the teachings ...! laughing

        I have never heard, although it should. In general, exercises need to be conducted regularly in approximately the following scenario: in one small, but proud Baltic country, during joint exercises with the allies of that country, an explosion of tactical nuclear munitions accidentally occurred. To eliminate the consequences of Russia, at the compelled request of the government of a small and proud country (we act only on legal grounds smile ) introduces into the territory of this country subdivisions of the RBMB, engineering troops and the Ministry of Emergencies to help a neighbor. And to protect EMERCOM employees from marauders, motorized rifle and tank units are introduced. For victims and refugees, temporary detention camps are being created under the protection of the Russian Guard.
        And what, we are exclusively for humanitarian reasons training in providing assistance ... smile

    And in the picture where are they aiming, in the water or what? They just want to knock out our submarine. But interestingly, the destructive power of a bullet is lost when a bullet travels a distance of only 80 cm in water.

    among which are Stryker combat vehicles, howitzers and combat support vehicles.
    There will be something to drown-gouging-drop from the platform, etc. wassat
    All are puffed up the power to demonstrate! It does not reach them that if it arises - God forbid! - need, no one is going to hand-to-hand combat with them: we will smash them with weapons of "medium and shorter range", and then - just a cleanup ... those who, because of the big "addition in their pants", will not have time to escape.

    relocation to a distance of 2,4 thousand kilometers of about 1,5 thousand military personnel of the second cavalry (motorized infantry) regiment of the US Army with 400 units of military equipment,
    All saboteurs who entered the territory of Russia will be eliminated. Watch the film "The Dawns Here Are Quiet ..."

    In the photo, why are they gathered in a bunch? To one grenade from the grenade? They also have individual radio communications. Even at line-of-sight distance, coordination is not necessary. "We hug each other to make it warmer"?

    I hope the air defense and the interceptors will be in full combat ...

    But it already happened, September 1939 to May 1941. History repeats itself, only the Yankees will not be able to sit behind a puddle. The United States has not had a war for too long on their territory.
