Polish 7th Mounted Rifles Battalion trains with US forces ahead of Combined Resolve VII
The exercise before the exercise. This does bring up an interesting question though.
How many exercises have we seen in Europe this year? Doesn't it seem a bit excessive? We didn't see this much activity at the height of the Cold War so why now?
Everyone makes Russia into the boogeyman, but if I was in their shoes and saw this much training going on I would expect that some type of attack was imminent! Its almost as if leadership is trying to break the force. I really wish I understood the thinking here.
