Prepping for “Hybrid War” with Russia: NATO Holds Biggest Military Exercise in 13 Years

| |

NATO-roundtable

The biggest military exercise NATO has held in 13 years, “Trident Juncture” will end tomorrow.

DW.com claims that, even though 36,000 soldiers from various NATO countries including the U.S. have participated in the exercise to defend against “Russia’s military ambitions,” (or what other outlets are simply referring to as “Russian aggression”), the organization is actually at a big disadvantage against Russia, not only because its trying to coordinate 28 member states with different priorities, but Russia’s training events in the last two years have involved up to 80,000 soldiers, more than twice that of NATO.

A big show happened just yesterday:

Wednesday’s choreographed battle lasted less than one hour and paraded a range of assets from several nations: tanks, armored troop carriers, Apache attack helicopters, Chinooks, artillery, infantry, a special operations incursion and, at the end, an F-18 flyover. A narrator described a scripted set of circumstances at the fictional village of “Casas Altas” over a speaker system. Elements, identified by contributing nations, executed their maneuvers as artillery, rifle blanks sounded off and smoke gradually spread for thousands of feet around the besieged village.

After the battle, the audience was bussed down the hill near the fake village with minimalist, yellow concrete buildings and walls. There, they watched about 500 U.S. paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division and 23 Spanish paratroopers jump into a nearby drop zone.

And by “big show,” NATO literally meant big show:

The spectacle may have been for show, but that’s the point, according to NATO leadership: to indicate to potential aggressors that NATO can react with a coordinated, versatile, strong and rapid force.

Interviewing an “experienced NATO diplomat – who would like to maintain anonymity” (isn’t that how it always is?), DW reported:

However, the current situation cannot be compared to the arms race during the Cold War, in which two equal powers constantly tried to outdo each other.

At the moment, Russia advances and NATO tries to respond. “Russia is more determined at the moment and more flexible and cohesive. That’s something we certainly have to address,” says the NATO diplomat.

The cohesiveness does not surprise anyone, as Putin’s military does not require complicated agreement or legitimization procedures.

The exercise included cyber warfare, such as propaganda, and the use of online trolls to spread disinfo:

“We will have to think hard about how to deter in modern times,” [says the NATO diplomat]

By “modern times” he means hybrid warfare and cyber warfare, like paralyzing the Internet, letting conflicts simmer without admitting to involvement, influencing public opinion by using Internet trolls, and being swift and flexible. That is what Russia does and more. Yet not everything about “Trident Juncture” is bad, claims Paul Ivan. Even though the exercise was designed and decided on before the events in eastern Ukraine unfolded, NATO was still able to integrate elements of modern warfare into the training.

    “Russia’s military ambitions”?! You mean like protecting themselves from the run away, out of control, globalist funded military machine of the West? If their ambitions are self preservation-the Russians are kindred spirits of American citizens who fear their government and still believe in what is left of the Constitution. Perhaps, one day, we’ll find ourselves fighting beside them.

    • We would be much better off if it would run away…
      We fought alongside them in a couple of world wars.

    • Occams

      I believe that Putin may well have to make a decision to move against DC and Tel Aviv – the source of all war and terror, to avoid a nuclear conflict.

      WA knows it cannot win a conventional war, and Putin and those surrounding him seem to understand the developing catastrophe will be devastating.

      Perhaps it would be the impetus for the Awake in Amerika to move with him?

      Can you IMAGINE THAT!? Fighting with Russia to take back Washington!!??)

      I had some hope that the ‘Special’ Forces would not commit treason like the regular, uneducated troops and officers corps are doing, but with the 50 SF’s who went to Syria to fight with ISIS and be used as cannon fodder to provoke Russia, I’m going to bet that the US mil’ will be thrilled to fight in WA for the proverbial ‘den of vipers’.

      What a fuckin’ mess.

        I read somewhere that the American military have established regiments (?) comprising soldiers who have sworn to shoot American citizens if ordered to. Anyone got further info on this…?

        • Occams

          Obama DID have a ‘litmus test’ asking all upcoming officers, as a key to promotion, if they would willingly fire upon American citizens, firing those who said they would not.

          It’s funny that with stuff like that well-publicized, the public still thinks ‘things are fine’ or that ‘that would never happen’.

          Then why would he ask?

          Talked with a client today. ABSOLUTELY CLUELESS. Remarkably so.

          She believes we’re getting better and better, and was truly surprised that I actually thought that most everything was a manufactured bubble – and that it’s going to pop.

          It’s almost hard to believe the disconnect from reality of the people of the US.

      Careful what you say R. People have disappeared for less. Your opinion is not required, just your taxes.

      • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

        Hopefully, when I disappear, it will be on my terms!

  • It is manifestly moronic to prep for a war one has been instigating for several years after it has begun.

    My advice to any of the soldiers in NATO is to immediately surrender. “Immediately” is before the war starts if possible. Try to surrender via E-mail or something.

    You mean Washington “Psychopaths”?

    We all need to live in peace and in non-violence. Where is Cyndy Sheehan and the anti-war leftist press when you need them? Hypocrite leftists.

  • Occams

    NATO will gum Russia, and Russia will take a HUGE, WELL-DESERVED bite out of NATO and Amerika’s ass.
