Aurora 17 – To aid a brother

Proud to mention that Latvian HG platoon takes part in A-17

Corporal Frisk

Upon thy glimmering thresholds, when the steam
Floats up from those dim fields about the homes
Of happy men that have the power to die

Tithonus cries out to Aurora, the goddess of dawn

Alfred, Lord Tennyson – “Tithonus”

Perhaps the final sign to show that Sweden has now moved out of the notorious ‘strategic blackout’ is the major exercise Aurora 17 currently underway in the southern parts of the country.

  1. Gaidu pelmeņa bumbu klusajā okeānā, pēc tam iebrukumu Baltijas valstīs no Krievijas, kamēr otrā pasaules malā kodolkarš tiek veikts.

    • Tu redzi tiešo saikni starp kārtējo ZK izmēģinājumu un US iebrukumu? Es neredzu. Visi saprot ka ZK var nožmiegt ekonomiski, ja CN un RU to vēlēsies. Ja ZK uzbruktu Japānai vai DKorejai vai trāpītu US, tad gan, bet kādēļ Čena komandai to darīt?

      • Kāpēc lai tā darītu? Nu tā tīri for fun…
        US toč nē, bet džapāniem un Dkorejiem iekakātu pagalmā labprāt

      • Izskatās, ka tieši ar Ziemeļkoreju, visu situāciju tur Ķīna, jo pretējā gadījumā iebrukums no ASV puses jau būtu noteicis. Krievijai šajā jautājumā maza teikšana un nekādas prettestības vai atbalsta Ziemeļkorejai nebūtu.

  2. 600 field units were brought to field positions in Central and Western military districts. https://twitter.com/russiamilitaryw/status/912412217286504448

    Un šodienas kārtējie NK izteikumi, aij aij.
