    10,000 troops from 13 countries arrive in the uk for major exercise

    "The UK will boost its defensive capabilities by hosting a major international military exercise for two weeks from 30 March 2019."

    "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."

    How convenient. Oh, I wonder what kind of exercise. A 'stop Brexiters getting angry' exercise? Frightening times are coming.

    It could also be a "stop Remainers getting angry" exercise.

    Only if we leave. Do you really think that's likely?

    And who has the self destruct keys ....

    I'm looking forward to a good ruck.

    I note with amusement that lots of the people who supplied those armies with their kit voted leave. I wouldnt bet heavily on their weaponry working properly if pointed at us..

    Probably MeWe. If people haven't started using that, now's the time. Massive censorship of face***k now.

    That is why checking this website every day is essential to keep up with what is going on. Hardly any of it appears in the press/media. The government relies on that to keep the general population in ignorance:-

    As international exercises go this is relatively modest. With 6500 of the 10000 personel being involved in sea borne activities, it is only the more militant mermaids, either leave or remain, who need worry!

    Last year 5500 British troops joined 65000, yes 65000, Omani troops in Exercise Saif Sureea 3 lasting a month. 4000 British troops are currently stationed in Germany.
