Blasphemey Bloc US-Israeli joint military exercise this autumn


Washington will now send 1,500 troops to Austere Challenge 12, a joint US-Israeli ballistic missile exercise this autumn, instead of the 5,000 previously announced.

The news comes amid increasing calls by the Israeli political establishment for a unilateral military strike against Iran’s nuclear program, a move that Washington has cautioned against.

“Austere Challenge-12 remains the largest-ever ballistic missile defense exercise between our nations and a significant increase from the previous event in 2009,” Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Jack Miller, a Pentagon spokesman said.
