Russian Troops Coming to U.S. for Terror Drills, DoD Confirms
The New American ^ | 4/27/2012 | Alex Newman

Posted on 04/28/2012 2:44:58 PM PDT by IbJensen

Russian “Airborne Assault Forces” will be arriving in Colorado this May for joint terror-war exercises with U.S. soldiers, according to U.S. officials and Russian military personnel cited in media reports. The Kremlin’s Defense Ministry and the U.S. Department of Defense both said it would be the first time in history that American and Russian airborne special operations troops would be training together on U.S. soil.

Analysts and commentators across the alternative media expressed alarm about the controversial announcement, likening it to a scene out of the movie Red Dawn or the predictions made by the late radio host Bill Cooper. It was not immediately clear exactly why the Obama administration decided to allow the scheme.

“The Russian soldiers are here as invited guests of the U.S. government; this is part of a formal bilateral exchange program between the U.S. and Russia that seeks to develop transparency and promote defense reform,” Cmdr. Wendy L. Snyder, U.S. Defense Press Officer for policy, told The New American in an e-mail. “This is the first time that American and Russian special operations troops have participated in a bilateral exercise.”

According to Snyder, the exercises — which she said would last about three weeks in all — will serve to train and improve skills related to terror-war fighting. About 20 Russian soldiers will be participating, with most of the training to take place on the Fort Carson, Colorado, Army base and a mountain training area several hours away.

“Aside from typical military training, the exchange will include discussions on the rule of land warfare, developing appropriate rules of engagement, and employing cultural literacy and competency in the tactical environment,” Snyder explained. “This type of training is routinely conducted by 10th Special Forces Group.”

While U.S. officials remained largely silent on the operation until contacted by the press, the Russian government has been touting the unprecedented terror drills through official announcements and news reports in state-controlled media for over a week. In fact, virtually all of the details about the exercise that emerged publicly early on came from Kremlin sources.

“According to the exercise scenario, soldiers of the two countries will hold a tactical airborne operation, including reconnaissance of an imaginary terrorists' camp and a raid,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Col. Aleksandr Kucherenko was quoted as saying in official news reports, also noting that it was the first time such an exercise would be held. “The Russian Airborne Assault Force will contribute a special task group that will exercise with U.S. special service weapons.”

Before the official drills begin on May 24, the Russian government’s forces will reportedly be training to use a wide array of American military equipment at the U.S. Army's Fort Carson base. Parachuting, operations planning, reconnaissance, assaults, raids, and evacuations will all be on the agenda. The training is expected to last until May 31, though U.S. officials said it would go until early June.

One of the highlights of the cooperation will be a joint terror assault and raid on a “camp.” The exercise will apparently bring together U.S. and Russian troops from the planning stages to the final evacuation from the scene by helicopter. Russian forces will also be attending a baseball game at some point during their stay, Kremlin sources reported.

According to a report entitled “The Russians are coming! First joint 'Top Gun' drills to be held in US” in the state-funded Russian media outlet RT, the agreement to hold the drills was drafted late last year by the Russian Airborne Command and a U.S. military delegation in Moscow. It was not immediately clear which government proposed the scheme or what the precise goals were, though apparently the Russians were invited to participate by the U.S. government.

“The U.S. military routinely conducts such joint exchanges with foreign forces to strengthen relationships, provide familiarization with each other's tactics and procedures, and to exchange best practices,” DoD spokesperson Snyder explained. “The end result of this type of program is that our military has improved operational effectiveness with foreign forces as well as, and in this case, supporting the defense reform of Russia.”

President Obama has made improved ties with the Russian government a top priority it seems. Last month during a security summit, Obama even promised to pursue yet another controversial agreement with Russian officials to further slash both governments’ nuclear arsenals, saying the U.S. already controls more than enough atomic weapons.

Despite several high-profile apparent disagreements in recent years — on Syria, Libya, missile shields, and more — outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev praised the Obama administration, saying relations between the two governments had reached their “best level” in a decade. Obama, meanwhile, thanked Medvedev for his “cooperation” and said he could not have asked for a “better partner” in Russia.

"Going forward, we'll continue to seek discussions with Russia on a step we have never taken before — reducing not only our strategic nuclear warheads, but also tactical weapons and warheads in reserve," Obama said during a speech at South Korea’s Hankuk University of Foreign Studies. “We can already say with confidence that we have more nuclear weapons than we need.”

After the summit, Obama also came under fire when he was overheard telling then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that, “This is my last election. After my election, I'll have more flexibility.” Critics pounced on the statement from all angles to criticize Obama, with some claiming that he had sold out to the Russians.

Meanwhile, e-mails from the private intelligence firm Stratfor released by WikiLeaks show that top executives in the company — well-connected individuals, obviously — believed President Obama had taken Russian money for his campaign. The news has already become something of a scandal among alternative media outlets and commentators.

“The hunt is on for the sleezy Russian money into O-mans coffers. A smoking gun has already been found,” wrote Fred Burton, Stratfor’s Vice President of Intelligence. “My source was too giddy to continue. Can you say Clinton and [Chinese Communist] ChiCom funny money?” The company refused to confirm whether the e-mails were genuine, but most analysts believe they are.

This week, the Russian Navy is also engaged in unprecedented joint “war games” with the Communist regime ruling mainland China. The training exercises, taking place in the Yellow Sea, involve more than two-dozen vessels including submarines and destroyers.

The U.S. government, meanwhile, is simultaneously engaged in war games in the Asia-Pacific region with the Communist regime ruling Vietnam and the government of the Philippines. And in August of 2010, U.S., Russian, and Canadian air forces worked together on terror drills involving hijacked airplanes.

Foreign troops — from Europe, Latin America, and more — have been engaged in countless training exercises on U.S. soil over the years. Critics, meanwhile, have been sounding the alarm about the controversial drills for over a decade.

Several prominent media outlets reporting on the Russian terror training in the U.S. picked up information from a well-known disinformation source. The almost certainly false “article” claimed — citing official “reports” allegedly circulating in the Kremlin — that Russian troops would also be tasked with taking over and holding certain CIA and NSA facilities.

However, the original source of claims — “whatdoesitmean.com” — is widely known as notoriously unreliable. Aside from the Department of Homeland Security, which used the hoax website to compile a report labeling most Americans potential right-wing terrorists, virtually all reputable information services have been aware of the disinformation peddling for years. DHS later retracted the report and apologized.

"This is the first time that American and Russian special operations troops have participated in a bilateral exercise."

Shocking this would occur on ObaMaoist's watch!

"will serve to train and improve skills related to terror-war fighting."

Who's skills? The Russians? They're not the ones who have been fighting 2+ international insurregency-fueled wars for over 10 years.

Me thinks this is more related to DHS's belief that the largest threat is "home grown" terrorism (you know - returning vets and people with Ron Paul bumper stickers). Just like Fast and Furious wasn't about tracking gun running to drug lords, it was about ginning up support for more gun control.

The Russians will reconnoiter and assess US operations, capabilities and tactics, they would be stupid not to.

It is true that Putin has directed money to Zero's campaign, Zero is so weak and incompetent that Putin couldn't put a bigger traitor in the White House if he trained him himself.

It's also true that Putin owns Obama, but Obama wasn't smart enough to "sell" out, he gave it away.

Lastly, the Russians aren't here to invade or conquer, there here to steal any good ideas they can.

They'll let America self destruct and not take any blame for it.

The Russians will learn hardened techniques of how to properly read terrorists their miranda rights. They will be instructed how to lay low, following the Rules of Engagement, and wait to engage the enemy until they themselves draw first blood.

They'll learn that along with all the valuable tactics.

Then they'll disregard all the PC crap, take the terrorists alive and torture every last bit of intel from 'em, and keep it to themselves after they kill 'em.

They already pressure terrorists to emigrate West by hunting them relentlessly.

I don’t see this as a totally bad exchange. Most Russians like us, as opposed to the Putin government. We want every day Russias on our side. Those 20 Russians will go home with stories of how beautiful and clean this country is and how just about everything works. They will tell a lot of people (may be in private) how great it would to live here.

SIEG HEIL !

I played this for the younger members of the family. They were stone faced. They did NOT understand any of the humor, (George Scott: “Well there you have it, now we have mine shaft gap.”) Meanwhile, I was rolling on the floor.

It was really a generational flick.

The last week of every April, for the last 39 years, I fly a bright yellow flag with three prominent red strips on it.

A neighbor asked me, WTF? My response, the same as Dr. Strangelove: If you know what it is, I don’t have to explain. If you don’t know, I can never explain it, it would take too long.”

Sorry all, bad memory week for me.

If your memory is better than mine, (probably) then your rendition of that famous line is correct.

At any rate, it had me rolling.

And the Russians in that flick reminded me of Boris and Natasha: “Don’t tell Moose and squirrel!”

When BeeHoe whispered in Medvedev’s ear, that line was my very first thought. “Don’t tell Moose and squirrel!”

I don’t know, but I’ll bet you rolled over on that one too.
And I know for a fact, 7/10s of those reading this have no idea what the hell I’m talking about.

I’m not as freaked out. American troops have routinely been in former Eastern Bloc countries, including Russia. We trade troops all the time these days.

I think people would be shocked at how quickly we began engaging in joint exercises with former enemies, especially once the Cold War started to end.

People who get upset or express surprise over this really have not been paying attention to military matters.

While we may butt heads with the Russians, the Russians and Americans have a common enemy that is a much bigger threat to both of our nations than we are to each other - a certain religion. The exercises are in and around mountains, and if I recall, both Russia, and the US have had to fight long wars in mountainous terrain against that very enemy in the last 30 years or so.

But that makes me wonder why Obama would allow this - he doesn't approve of the Russian way of dealing with radical muslims......

Russian “Airborne Assault Forces” will be arriving in Colorado this May for joint terror-war exercises with U.S. soldiers,..... “The U.S. military routinely conducts such joint exchanges with foreign forces .... “This type of training is routinely conducted by 10th Special Forces Group.”
Yes we do routinely conduct joint exchanges with foreign forces. And yes it is routinely conducted by the 10th SF Group. And those foreign forces our SF trains with are those like Germany's Special Forces, the SAS, and the French Foreign Legion (one group of tough SOBs). Sometimes it's here in the US, sometimes on the other's territory.

But training with 'Russian “Airborne Assault Forces”'? Excuse me but that spells 'Spetsnaz' no matter how you coat it (a Rose is a Rose). And those 'soldiers' are are the meanest, coldest, ruthless trained KILLERS in any country's uniform. Anything and everything they can lay their hand on is a lethal weapon. They're also trained to use they're Entrenching Tool like a Tomahawk and they don't miss when throwing it. They're like our SF + SEALS + the FFL on Meth. During Spetsnaz training they are warned that some of them will likely DIE and if you do tough luck -- that's 'life' in the Spetsnaz. Because if in a real engagement they ARE expected to die if that's what's called for as they don't retreat -- ever.

So I hope that they're slipped some VALIUM into their water or food or their Spetsnaz training just may go into auto-pilot at the wrong moment and our guys wind up getting killed in this little 'Training Exercise'.

Not to mention a little thing like Espionage. Oops, I mean 'intelligence gathering'. But hey, that's no biggie under Barry. After all, in his eyes we're the bad guys anyway.

"Chavez pledged that his country would 'stay by Iran at any time and under any condition,' state television reported. Ahmadinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit." "'We do not have any limitation in cooperation,' Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. 'Iran and Venezuela are next to each other and supporters of each other. Chavez is a source of a progressive and revolutionary current in South America and his stance in restricting imperialism is tangible.'":

Obama To Betray Missile Defense Secrets To Moscow
Investor's Business Daily ^ | January 9, 2012 | IBD staff

Appeasement: From ObamaCare to recess appointments, honoring the Constitution has not been an administration hallmark. But when it comes to betraying secrets to mollify the Russians, it becomes a document the president hides behind.

It was bad enough that the 2012 defense authorization bill signed by President Obama set America on a downward spiral of military mediocrity.

He also issued a signing statement, something he once opposed, saying that language in the bill aimed at protecting top-secret technical data on the U.S. Standard Missile-3 — linchpin of our missile defense — might impinge on his constitutional foreign-policy authority.

Section 1227 of the defense law prohibits spending any funds that would be used to give Russian officials access to sensitive missile-defense technology as part of a cooperation agreement without first sending Congress a report identifying the specific secrets, how they'd be used and steps to protect the data from compromise.

The president is required to certify that any technology shared will not be passed on to third parties such as China, North Korea or Iran, that the Russians will not use transferred secrets to develop countermeasures and that the Russians are reciprocating in sharing missile-defense technology.
