Military Drills Increase Globally- War Preparations in Progress?

27 May 2015, 14:18

Joint and  individual military exercise drills have proliferated across the globe over the past couple of months with no sign of these occurrences abating, if anything it appears as full steam ahead.

As these events are at an unprecedented level to-date, they point to potential war preparations, or if not, preparations for an event unbeknown to the general public at this stage.    

Let’s sum –up and examine these events accordingly;

First up are the ongoing ‘Jade Helm’ drills across several American states with parallel exercises in Canada known as ‘Maple Resolve’ involving NATO military personnel.

Lithuania conducting large-scale drills known as ‘Lightning Strike’

In Norway ten NATO countries are involved in operation ‘Dynamic Mongoose’

Russia and China involved in a joint exercise in the Mediterranean- unprecedented for China

The ‘Joint Warrior’ exercise in Scotland, involving fifty warships and submarines and seventy aircraft, also 13 000 personnel from fourteen countries.

Drills inside Russia in response to NATO’s involvement in surrounding countries such as; 24 missile inceptors moved into Romania, the Pentagon having moved warplanes and troops into Bulgaria.

NATO exercises and troop movement in Ukraine-   

Currently, the West is launching massive military drills in the Arctic, with Russia to follow with tanks and armoured vehicles as well as air defence missile batteries, soon to be deployed in Russia’s arctic regions.

In the Nordic and Baltic regions the two-week Arctic challenge exercise, following NATO submarine detection drills off the Norwegian coast earlier this month.

In March, Russia performed large-scale military drills in the Barents Sea, involving 40 000 military personnel.

The–up-and-coming attractions are; Japan and Australia joint military exercises in July for the first time.

Russia will conduct joint military exercises with India and China in the second part of this year.

In addition, this will include troops from Mongolia and Belarus.

What on earth is going on?
