Russia, US start first joint anti-terror war games on American soil

Flashback: Russian Troops To Target Terrorists in America As Part of Drill

Monday, May 14, 2012

Russia and the US are holding their first ever joint anti-terror military exercises on American territory. A group of Russian paratroopers has taken off to Fort Carson military base, located in the US state of Colorado.

A special unit of American land forces and a reconnaissance unit of Russian special forces will be taking part in the exercises.
Russian paratroopers will first familiarize themselves with American small arms, military equipage, munitions, communication and reconnaissance equipment, parachute systems and types of landing operations.

In addition, Russian and American servicemen will have joint gun practice, mountain training and will take a course in demolition techniques. They will also have parachute training using American military equipment.

At the end of May the exercises will enter the “active” stage with combat training, in the course of which participants are supposed to find, seize and destroy a large base of international “terrorists”.

FDR extended the idea to say that when there are no jobs, the government should act as an employer of last resort.
