In an email to the New American, Cmdr. Wendy L. Snyder, U.S. Defense Press Officer for policy confirms:
“The Russian soldiers are here as invited guests of the U.S. government; this is part of a formal bilateral exchange program between the U.S. and Russia that seeks to develop transparency and promote defense reform. This is the first time that American and Russian special operations troops have participated in a bilateral exercise.”
According to Snyder, the exercises – which should last about three weeks in all – will serve to train and improve skills related to terror-war fighting. Approximately 20 Russian soldiers will be participating, with most of the training to take place on the Fort Carson, Colorado, Army base and a mountain training area several hours away.
“Aside from typical military training, the exchange will include discussions on the rule of land warfare, developing appropriate rules of engagement, and employing cultural literacy and competency in the tactical environment,” Snyder explained. “This type of training is routinely conducted by 10th Special Forces Group.”
The drills, which will take place throughout the month May, mark the first time that Russian and American troops have trained alongside each other on American soil.
The above fact, along with reported claims that President Barack Obama has taken Russian money to fund his re-election campaign, have sparked fears within the alternative media over the use of foreign, communist armies to take on the American people in times of crisis.
