Prepping for "Hybrid War" with Russia: NATO Holds Biggest Military Exercise in 13 Years

• http://www.thedailysheeple.com

DW.com claims that, even though 36,000 soldiers from various NATO countries including the U.S. have participated in the exercise to defend against "Russia's military ambitions," (or what other outlets are simply referring to as "Russian aggression"), the organization is actually at a big disadvantage against Russia, not only because its trying to coordinate 28 member states with different priorities, but Russia's training events in the last two years have involved up to 80,000 soldiers, more than twice that of NATO.

A big show happened just yesterday:

Wednesday's choreographed battle lasted less than one hour and paraded a range of assets from several nations: tanks, armored troop carriers, Apache attack helicopters, Chinooks, artillery, infantry, a special operations incursion and, at the end, an F-18 flyover. A narrator described a scripted set of circumstances at the fictional village of "Casas Altas" over a speaker system. Elements, identified by contributing nations, executed their maneuvers as artillery, rifle blanks sounded off and smoke gradually spread for thousands of feet around the besieged village.
