Exercise Bright Star is back...

“Bright Star is an excellent opportunity to improve our ability to partner at the operational level and identify best practices in countering asymmetric threats,” Mott said. “I’m very much looking forward to the opportunity to work with [our Egyptian partners] as we collectively learn from and share valuable lessons with each other throughout this exercise.”

Bright Star was last held in 2009 with more than 15 countries and 15,000 participants.

The US military is conducting more exercises and have a MUCH higher op tempo than they did when both wars were raging full blast in Afghanistan and Iraq.

I can't explain it.

It makes no sense.

But for some reason the combatant commanders are insatiable and no one has the balls to tell them no. The tail truly is waging the dog and you're seeing one of the reasons why we will lose the coming war with China.

We're exhausting the force playing war games instead of doing REAL HARD work of training to get better.
