U.S. Army Special Operations Command (USASOC) along with other branches of the military will be conducting one of the largest military exercises in recent memory.

The operation entitled Jade Force 15, will involve 1,200 troops comprised primarily of Green Berets, Navy Seals and Army infantry and will span across multiple states that include California, Nevada, Texas, Colorado, Arizona, Utah and New Mexico.

The operation is scheduled to commence July 18th, 2015 and end September 15th, 2015.

The exercises are much larger than most and span several states so they will not take place on military bases but instead will be conducted on both public and private property (permission already has been granted).  The purpose of the military exercise is to provide U.S. military forces with a realistic training ground in unfamiliar locals simulating both hostile and friendly territories.

The Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, has ordered the Texas State Guard to monitor the operation.

We see the Eastern dictator, emboldened by his recent success, to continue his theft of Ukrainian territory. Not satisfied enough with stealing Crimea, he will continue his advances and take other parts of Ukrainian territory and claim them as his, using various false pretexts. The strategy is to isolate the authorities in Kiev who move ever closer towards alignment with the West. He is convinced that the West will not risk military confrontation and that any type of sanctions imposed will not be enough as to deter his ambitions.

Make no mistake.

His appetite is ravenous. He comes from the era of domination by force. He believes completely that the West aims to subjugate and dominate his country and this is his way of demonstrating that he will not be stifled or made small.  He believes the West was responsible for the breakup of the USSR and he aims to restore it. He is not Medvedev who is a moderate.

Western leaders cringe at the prospect of going too far in sanctions and penalties for fear of reciprocating actions from Russia that will affect their economies as well, so there is little they can do to prevent this man from aggression. If Poland escalates its schedule for the defensive missiles shield in its country, he will do the unthinkable – consider invading this country as well. He will go as far as he can without it leading to a nuclear confrontation but he is willing to go even that far because his ego and pride are his own demons.

This is a very dangerous man.
