IT SAYS: Too many soldiers on a training exercise, here, you plan the attack on Russia.
FALSE: To exclude this hypothesis is just a given: Defender Europe had to engage in a first time 37mila soldiers, that is 20 thousand U.s. military's arrival, the nine thousand already present, and eight thousand european. The emergency virus has imposed a reduction (announced but not yet defined). At the time of the Cold War, when it was considered realistic the idea of an attack of the Red Army on the european front there were 70 thousand americans, who together with the troops night they had to withstand the first attack for 36 hours, waiting for reinforcements from across the Atlantic. In short, if the scenario was realistic, the arrivals would be much more numerous.
IT SAYS: The deployment of military resources is massive and unusual.
TRUE: The maneuver Defender Europe also serves to reconstruct the Pomcus, the system of supply of materials and military equipment pre-positioned, which guarantees the ability of military deployment in quick time. The materials currently available in the deposit points back often to thirty years ago, and do not guarantee readiness. In addition, the line of the starting grid is shifted relative to the times of the Cold War and requires a ridispiegamento different.
IT SAYS: The maneuvers necessary to prepare an attack against Russia.
FALSE: Every military manoeuvre assumes a scenario considered possible. In this case the scenario provides – albeit not openly – a possible clash with Russia, not a western attack. The purpose is deterrence, not aggression.
YOU SAY: THE contingent Uses to arrive just as it explodes the epidemic at the continental level to take advantage of the emergency and take over the Europe.
FALSE: According Antonio Mazzeo , activist, anti, “a manoeuvre of this size is to plan at least a year in advance, when no one could have predicted the epidemic”.
IT SAYS: We are on the brink of Third world War.
FALSE: The strategic goals of the Usa in the exercises in Eastern Europe are the others, says Fabio Mini, the former commander of the multinational Force Kfor: Return to the defence of Europe under the american control, Washington wants to gradually decrease the multilateral commitment in Nato and to promote bilateral agreements). To reassure the Countries of Eastern Europe, the former Warsaw Pact, which the Us has all the intentions to intervene on european soil in case of need. To reiterate to the Countries of western Europe the need for greater financial commitment in defence. To reaffirm that the strategic hub of the international politics of the Usa that Obama had wanted to move in Asia (in view of a comparison with China) – is not unique. In other words, the strategic planning american includes the preparation of contemporary, even on different theatres.
IT SAYS: The tutorial serves to re-establish the domain of the Usa on Europe.
FALSE: In the words of Francesco Vignarca , spokesperson for Network for Disarmament, “to believe that an operation planned for so long, and coordinated with the european States host to be an attempt to ‘control’ on the field, is an idea that is weak. All deployed soldiers will be placed in their Us bases. And the exercise of american hegemony is already exercised through direct pressure and bilateral and through Nato. There is no need of a new tutorial”.
IT SAYS: THE american soldiers will be element of the spread of the virus and take precautions.
PARTIALLY TRUE: The Us military are bound by the national laws of the Countries of transit and destination, also with regard to the measures of containment of the infection. But the images of the arrivals show that no special caveat was adopted, and, on the contrary, the reception has been accompanied by public events, such as concerts and meetings. And there remains the concern for the possible consequences of the movement of so many people on thousands of kilometres of european territory, at a time where travel and movements are to be avoided.
IT SAYS: THE american soldiers have already available a vaccine and don't share.
FALSE: Here we are in full scope from a metropolitan legend, on the edge of paranoia. As a partial denial can be worth the quarantine of general Christopher Cavoli, commander of U.S. Army Europe, which has been exposed to the contagion in a meeting of the highest level.
YOU SAYS: In full alarm by Coronavirus, it seems crazy that Italy and Europe have to spend huge figures in military exercises.
PARTIALLY TRUE: Italy has withdrawn from Defender Europe, its armed Forces are committed to tackling the health emergency, even if the Defence has not cancelled the Italian participation in the operation Red Flag in Nevada, which involves the departments aviation in our Country. On the opportunity of military exercises at this time, the judgment is political, not fact. Should be only added that the maneuvers were decided from months.
