Russian Federation troops will conduct “wargames” next month with the US military, according to the European Union Times.
Airborne troops from Russia and the Untied States would hold joint anti-terror drills in the U.S. state of Colorado between May 24 and 31, spokesman of the Russian Defense Ministry Col. Alexander Kucherenko said on Thursday. According to the spokesman, it will be the first time that the Russian airborne forces have held exercises with the U.S. airborne forces on the U.S. territory.
Strangely enough, this is nicely aligned with the NATO Summit meetings in Chicago the week of May 20th – http://thenewamerican.com/world-mainmenu-26/europe-mainmenu-35/11652-nato-summit-in-chicago-putin-afghanistan-and-convergence
“According to the exercise scenario, soldiers of the two countries will hold a tactical airborne operation, including the reconnaissance of imaginary terrorists’ camp and a raid,” Kucherenko said. “After the operation, a helicopter will evacuate the soldiers,” Kucherenko said, adding that the Russian soldiers will also exercise with the U.S. special service weapons in the drills in Fort Carson, Colorado. http://english.cri.cn/6966/2012/04/20/189s694306.htm
Besides, the spokesman said, the Russian group will arrive a week ahead of the drills and attend a baseball game in the city of Colorado Springs. This will place Russian troops on the groud three days before the NATO Summit begins… how convenient.
Puzzling to Russian military analysts about this exercise, this report says, are that according to the American plans, Russian airborne troops (using US weapons that they had previously trained with at Fort Carson) will fly to and then parachute from their planes having the objectives of seizing the CIA’s main computer facility in Denver, the NSA’s main computer facility in Bluffdale, Utah, and taking control of main runways and terminals of the Denver International Airport.
If this doesn’t strike you as an amazing confluence of circumstances, nothing will.
Considering that this “wargames” exercise will come directly on the heels of Operation Ardent Sentry (https://ncrenegade.com//editorial/usnorthcom-prepares-for-operation-ardent-sentry/) we should be asking some serious questions about why we are granting foreign special forces troops access to extremely sensitive facilities on American soil, at a time when social, political, and finacial tensions around the globe are all running quite high.
Mr. President, why are you inviting every fox you can find into the hen-house even as we approach “feeding time”?
