Published 14 March 2019

The UK will boost its defensive capabilities by hosting a major international military exercise for two weeks from 30 March 2019.
More than 10,000 military personnel, 35 warships, 5 submarines and 59 aircraft and helicopters from 13 countries will take part in Exercise Joint Warrior until 11 April.

The aim of Joint Warrior is to allow the UK’s Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and their allies to conduct joint operations involving different forces and units and against a range of current and future threats

There following nations are taking part in Exercise Joint Warrior: Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, the UK and the US.

Operation Yellowhammer
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-47658403

“On operation yellowhammer, which is the emergency planning for a no-deal Brexit, it is beyond comprehension that any Prime Minister could knowingly allow the country to be eight days—about 200 hours—away from the possibility of crashing out of the European Union without a deal and to require that emergency planning work to be done”

The First Minister (Nicola Sturgeon) on Yellowhammer

The question I have is: Why commit 10,000 troops during a key period of political change?

We should be leaving the EU at 11pm on Friday 29th and yet we have 10,000 troops in an exercise (cover) from 30th March to 11th April (two weeks)! As UK column pointed out, best to have foreign troops if you need to forcefully crack down on UK populace.

Would you want foreign troops diverting military resources during your contingency planning? Incompetence, over-confidence or worst case planning for unrest?

Operation Gladio – Full 1992 documentary BBC

Published on Jul 7, 2012
Originally aired on BBC2 in 1992, ‘Operation Gladio’ reveals ‘Gladio’, the secret state-sponsored terror network operating in Europe.

This BBC series is about a far-right secret army, operated by the CIA and MI6 through NATO, which killed hundreds of innocent Europeans and attempted to blame the deaths on Baader Meinhof, Red Brigades and other left wing groups. Known as ‘stay-behinds’ these armies were given access to military equipment which was supposed to be used for sabotage after a Soviet invasion. Instead it was used in massacres across mainland Europe as part of a CIA Strategy of Tension. Gladio killing sprees in Belgium and Italy were carried out for the purpose of frightening the national political classes into adopting U.S. policies.
Ditto: false flags of Boko-Haram, Charlie Hebdo, etc

US eyes full-time Spain base for Africa troops

http://www.thelocal.es/20150105/us-eyes-permanent-spain-base-for-africa-troops

The United States has said it wants to permanently station an elite squad of marines in Andalusia to deal with crises in Africa but Spanish authorities are concerned about possible consequences.

Since 2013, the US has had a rolling annual deal with Spain which allows for Africa crisis troops to be stationed at the Morón de la Frontera air base near the city of Andalusia in Seville.

The hoped-for deal would see the US stationing up to 850 troops full-time at the Andalusian base as part of a rapid-response unit to deal with crises in Africa. That number would then rise to 3,000 as needed.

Spain is key to US military strategy in Europe and Africa with the Rota naval base in Andalusia part of the Nato defence shield.
