    Is this an ominous sign of things to come? What do you think?


    The Israeli military is gearing up together with U.S. forces for a major missile defense exercise, the Israeli military announced Thursday, as tension between Iran and the international community escalates.

    The drill is called "Austere Challenge 12" and is designed to improve defense systems and cooperation between the U.S. and Israeli forces. It follows a 10-day Iranian naval exercise near the strategic Strait of Hormuz.

    Israel's military said the drill with the U.S. was planned long ago and is not tied to recent events.

    Both Israeli and U.S. officials said the exercise would be the largest-ever joint drill by the two countries.

    Israel should get out of it. Whatever the plants in this exercise learn will be immediately transmitted to Iran by order of obama.

    That made me laugh and cry at the same time. Laugh because it was kinda funny, cry because its probably true :eek:


    We are too late now, we had the 2 fronts (iraq and afghanistan) ready to go to deal with iran but no more.

    I have no problem with joint military drills between us and any of our allies but I do think we should have a much smaller military footprint around the world.

    Taxpayers continue to get duped. This exercise is not necessary. The entire world is aware of our military strength.

    BRING THE DAMN MONEY HOME. ISRAEL CAN STAND ON THEIR OWN!!!

    This could prove to be twice as exciting as "Austere Challenge 6".
