Defender Europe 20: the largest military deployment in the last 25 years, right on lockdown

There will be a similar readiness exercise in the Pacific later this year (see third video below). Intriguing that this one rolls out after the plandemic kicks in. And no protective gear, no distancing or other rules observed at all. We’ve been seeing this trend of military drills incorporating many nations for some time now. Part of the new global village scenario. Military on the streets more, training & interacting with the public. All the while we are seeing a greater police presence enforcing the lockdown rules as folk protest.

And meanwhile the military’s been rolling out in certain parts of the US also. EWR

 

“Defender Europe 20 is the largest deployment of the US, the UK, NATO allies & its partners in the last 25 years. The exercise will rehearse our ability to rapidly project a large scale, combat credible force and its equipment into Europe. Our squadron are the only one of its kind in the army. We’re designed to move tanks & other heavy pieces of equipment to wherever the end destination needs to be. During Exercise Defender Europe we’re going to move the squadron & all of our heavy equipment transporters into Belgium. We’ll move all of the American armour including …. from Belgium across mainland Europe and into Poland. Delivering our primary role in challenging & complex conditions, operating during winter in Poland…” (British Army, transcribed from the first video below).

Update : “In response to the current outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and recent guidance by the United States Secretary of Defense, we have modified exercise Defender-Europe 20 in size and scope. As of March 13, all movement of personnel and equipment from the United States to Europe has ceased”.  https://shape.nato.int/defender-europe/defender/newsroom/exercise-defendereurope-20-announcement-covid19-implications
