As former military, I just shake my head at reports like this. What possible good can come from a news agency reporting such training, if indeed it was conducted? I thought we weren't going to telegraph our strategy to potential enemies anymore? The only way this story makes even a lick of sense is if the US military wanted North Korea to think we were training for such a mission. Even then - to what end? To have them do an even better job of hiding them?

I just don't get it.

When it gets windy they can do convection training.

Hopefully if there is an intervention, it want be telegraphed. The whole NK thing makes me nervous. I’m not afraid of a nuclear attack, I’m hesitant on a war in that region. I also saw something that our troops have been conduction training in jungle terrain.


I just wonder how they get the kettle drums and horn sections that far into the jungle.

That'll be very valuable, given that North Korea is thousands of miles away from any jungle terrain.

I see the Conradian imaginary of colonialism is alive and well.

Neither is the Donald, although that's most likely because he really truly doesn't have a clue what the results of an actual nuclear attack could look like as he's not the brightest bulb. It could also present a big problem when the leader with the codes to drop the big ones isn't afraid of a nuclear attack. Anyone with common sense should be very afraid anytime world leaders start throwing around the concept of releasing nuclear weapons just for the hell of it.
