AMERICA HOLDS “PREMIER MULTI-WARFARE EXERCISE” IN MIDDLE EAST
|| By FITSNEWS || As tensions simmer in Washington, D.C. over America’s failed policies in the Middle East, the U.S. military is launching its “premier multi-warfare exercise within the Arabian Peninsula.”
Perfect timing, huh? Oh … and the war games even have their own nifty name: “Operation Eagle Resolve.”
The exercise – in the works for more than a year – consists of a “week-long series of simulated ‘injects’ to exercise participants’ ability to respond as a multinational headquarters staff, followed by a series of tactical demonstrations of land, maritime, and air forces from several nations,” according to U.S. Central Command.
Oooooooh … demonstrations.
More than 3,000 personnel (all of whom have Kung fu grip capability, we’re guessing) will participate in these activities, which will end with “a senior leader seminar to foster an environment for commanders to discuss issues of regional interest.”
Of course the exercise is “not intended as a signal to Iran,” a CENTCOMM source assured The Washington Free Beacon.
Course not …
That signal was already sent.
In addition to its nuclear program, Iran has been rapidly escalating its military (and naval) might in recent years – negotiating arms deals with Russia in an effort to enhance its submarine and sea-based missile programs.
Do we care? No. Sorry we just don’t buy the fearmongering.
What do we make of all this war gaming? Eh … it’s senseless (and expensive) posturing if you ask us, another example of America swinging a “big stick” it can no longer afford to carry.
But hey … “Republicans” in Congress are all about ramping up military spending in response to the “growing threat” posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). You know … the threat we were subsidizing as recently as a year ago.
Oh well … whatever keeps the contracts moving.
Man, just look at all that Joint Task Force “heavy iron” with the “BUFF in the center!!!!
Uncle Sugar is gonna kick you ass!!!!
That picture just gave me a hard-on!!!!!
It must be Photoshopped? The planes look too big from this angle. They look as big as the carrier. They should be tiny compared to the carrier. Are they the type that would land on a Carrier (the smaller ones of course)?
You are extremely observant. I think it was done by the ISIS studios…..(ha)(ha)(ha)…(guffaw)
ISIS is very skilled. I don’t see why they can’t Photoshop beheadings. They could trademark their process and call it Photochop.
pretty good! 10+
Oh, shit. I hope you and Squishy123 don’t start comparing the size of your erections on here.
Let’s be thankful SicWillie doesn’t allow us to post fotos anymore..!!
There are medical procedures for that.
With Obama, I think we’re all just praying we can make it til 2016…and get somebody competent in there. ..
Tater tots are ready little Lawarence. Now wash you hands and come eat.
Was this article written by a child or a Paulbot, comparing a child to a Paulbot would be an insult to the child.
Paulbots are fine with Iran getting a nuke, and fine having a nuclear arms race with its Sunni counterparts which ISIS will soon have or Hezbollah if it’s from Iran.
There is a right place and a wrong place for advanced military hardware. 1) On display as above photo and 2) on display in formation in the middle of the Persion Gulf.
A wrong place would be close to the beach in the Persion Gulf.
There is no need for boots on the ground in that desert. Not again, not yet.
And the Sunni-Shiite war will become nuclear in the next few years anyway Paulbot.
If and when it does, we absolutely don’t want our boots on the ground in the middle of it.
Teddy Roosevelt was right about that One Thing: “Speak softly and carry a big stick.”
So does that apply if it were the Dominica with what Dr. Paul supported with Operation Red Dog with his white supremacists friends? Penning a letter in faking authorization for the use of force by the US government? The Texas governor who was there when JFK got shot also penned the letter too.
You have to dig really deep to find a Texan poli-wog who wasn’t sitting on a fence, trying to decide which way the winds were blowing in that era. 1963? Go figure!
That old guy is older than me, but not by much. I had hair to my waist and no direction home at that time … You?
June 21st, 1981, New York Times:
If the Middle East were the Dominica, Dr. Paul would be okay with it!
Even that is almost 35 years old … You?
I’m guessing you haven’t seen enough body bags, yet. Guessing, that’s all.
It’s relevant because Dr. Paul has made his entire franchise about favoring non-interventionism which you Paulbots don’t even care to look at any sort of facts that’d contradict his own statements. This will destroy his franchise:
The whole establishment thing is falling apart anyway. The Concerned Veterans Of America South Carolina is run by a gay man that plays of Grinder all day. So what do you expect to come of all this?
Really? How offensive is that?
The caption under that picture should say:
“WHEN DIPLOMACY FAILS”
… and inscribed of Kerry’s tombstone.
Don’t sell Kerry too short.
A few years back when it looked like the North Koreans were really about to start something, Kerry got in front of the cameras and basically stated that if one fucking missile or artillery round hit South Korea that would be the last fucking missile or artillery round to hit South Korea.
You could tell by his face he meant it. The North Koreans shut their mouths, put their toys up and ain’t really acted up since.
I remember it well. I was impressed.
I didn’t think Benedict Arnold Kerry ever did anything impressive.
Self-smug types like you wouldn’t
When he sat in front of that senate committee and lied about our troops in Vietnam he lost it for me. Most countries execute traitors here we make them rich and famous. Go figure.
What is it the submariners say?: There are submarines . . . and targets.”
a high pressure environment.
That picture makes my dick hard.
As a former carrier guy, you are not far off the beam. Being at sea with a beautiful day, planes roaring in and out, the ship moving steadily through blue waters, feeling the surging of energy and power under your feet, it can be a rush feeling that tremendous power. It is a kick-ass feeling!
I think I’ll go out and kill something.
Those war toys get rusty if you don’t exercise ’em.
That’s cgi, isn’t it?
If it were more than just a touch up with cgi, there would be more ’52’s.
Lets be clear, it’s the secretive R2P program that subsidized the armament of the Libyan/Syrian Rebels and is now subsidizing ISIS. It’s not a policy.
Fearmongering goes a long way in Washington. It always has done so. Now days it scares rubes into voting for Republicans in order to avoid imposition of Sharia law in Oklahoma, mandatory abortions of white babies in Kansas, or gun confiscation in Texas. It also helps pump up the defense budget so all those contractors may continue to fatten their checkbooks off the taxpayers. Fearmongering is easier than crafting well-thought out positions on issues and working toward their implementation. It’s the easy way out for gutless pols.
“Well thought out positions on issues.” Like maybe “leading from behind” That seems to be working really well.LOL
All you anti military Liberal- tarians stick your heads in the sand and wait for our enemies to blow your asses off. As for me , I would rather face them head on.
