Empire’s Navy, Marines Launch Largest Amphibious Exercise in 40 Years

Spans 17 time zones — why?

Editor’s note: When China holds a military exercise it takes place in China. When the Empire holds a military exercise it takes place across 17 time zones.

The US Navy and Marine Corps launched a naval exercise this week that is being billed as the largest US amphibious exercise in 40 years. The Large Scale Exercise 2021 (LSE) launched August 3rd and will run until August 16th, spanning 17 time zones and involving five numbered fleets.

US Naval Forces Europe-Africa/US 6th Fleet said in a statement that the LSE is a return to similar Cold War exercises that were held in the 1980s. The drills are another example of the US military shifting its focus towards so-called “great power competition” with Russia and China.

“LSE 2021 provides our Navy-Marine Corps team the opportunity to plan, direct and establish full spectrum naval operations. We must build naval readiness and advance the art and science of naval warfare to be ready to fight tonight — the stakes could not be higher,” said Adm. Samuel Paparo, the commander of US Pacific Fleet.

At least 36 ships, 50 virtual units, and about 25,000 personnel are expected to participate in the LSE, and the drills will be held across the world. The idea is to send a message to China and Russia that the US could fight naval battles on multiple fronts. This year, the LSE will only involve US warships, but other countries might join in the future.

The US also kicked off a separate massive military exercise in the Indo-Pacific region that incorporates all domains, each branch of the US military, and will include the UK, Japan, and Australia. The similarly named Large Scale Global Exercise 21 started on Monday and will be held until August 27th.

“This all-domain exercise will take place across the Indo-Pacific region with our global partners in the form of field training, logistical support activities, amphibious landings, airborne and ground maneuvers, air operations, maritime operations, and special operations activities,” US Indo-Pacific Command said in a statement.

    Hurry, spend the last of the money before you go to the wall…a third-world cesspit awaits. The world laughs as the US exhibits one military disaster after another, unstealhy “Stealth bomber”, F-35, USS Gerald Ford, Hypersonic missiles (not) etc,etc

    Just another pointless Yank dick waving exercise! They can’t help themselves.

      Yes, the little knobs waving in the wind.

    Why not take the drill and go Live – America? We have been listening to threats, hate speech against the ” Enemies”, discussions on how dangerous Russia and China have become , sooo, let’s see what you all – Got.
    Come on Pentagon – cut loose those Navy seals and Jar heads on the Russians and Chinese beaches Right Now. Disgusting

      Yes,,, it would be sadly hilarious to watch a Iwo Jima type beach assault on mainland China.

      1. tobi999 says

        you believe they would make it still to the beach??? XD

      America always tries to ensure other nations join in doing their dirty work. They cannot do it on their own. Even when others join the biggest bully on the block, vis a vis Vietnam and now Afghanistan, they still can’t get it right. Yet people insist on calling them a major power, DUH ?

  5. John Rourke says

    Yes the US could fight Naval Battles on multiple fronts but can it win any Naval Battles against Russia and China?

    1. Eddy says

      Naval battle ????? L.O.L. There will be NO naval battles these days, but there will be DESTRUCTION of Naval ships and carriers on a major scale. There will also be,the disapearence of supporting infrastructure in the blink of an eye, such as satelites spying and communicating between military headquarters. Once that happens, L.O.L. what are you going to fight your war with ???? No Comms, no Navy to speak of, Air Force neutralised unable to communicate with each other and H.Q. People today, have no idea of what a REAL war will be like, nor are they aware, within 20 minutes of the first short fired, all the above will be just a memory. So how then, would states continue their aggression ???

  6. ken says

    The new AXIS powers flexing their power. Wonder where they found 36 operational warships?

    1. Eddy says

      The alleged “power” your reffering to, is all in their minds.

    Zionist mafia runs the show

    nice of the US to show us all exactly what their playbook is. it looks like a massive target rich environment to me, just right for Russian and Chinese stand off weaponry which the US military simply doesn’t have an answer. nobody is fooled any more, the US has been exposed as the geriatric diaper ridden obsolete old duffer it really is. nobody cares anymore, it’s the 21st century and there’s lots to be getting on with, we can occasionally tune into the continued collapse reality tv show on CNN et al.

    1. Eddy says

      My points exactly. Reminds me of the Roosters in the hen house, puffing up their chests trying to impress the chickens, then a Bantam comes running out and beats up the rooster, who ends up running away. L.O.L.

  9. Eddy says

    Quote, “that is being billed as the largest US amphibious exercise in 40 years. ” Unquote. W.T.F. ??? How is this possible ?? The American military today, is the smallest it has ever been in it’s history. Every branch of it’s military today, is a microism of what they were 40 years ago, so how is it possible, to claim the largest execercise in 40 years ??? I’d also like to add, the accompanying nations militaries that are in cahoots with the Americans, are also of similar circumstances. It would appear the M.S.M. is trying it’s damndest, to frighten the opposition with it’s empty words. L.O.L.

    1. Richseeto says

      You are so correct.

      Whatever the US and Australia do is narratively described a s “monstrous and humongous” and their deliberate showing the loading of their “nuclear bombs” onto their “undefeatable” bombers is so children and juvenile if they were meant to cow and intimidate the enemies.

      Wow, both China and Russia are cowering in their mud huts.

      How hilarious indeed and if the US is sooooo brave, whyTF does it always cajole, bribe and threaten to enjoin other nations to help doing its dirty work and then after the battle is done, the US hoarded all the spoils without sharing any of them with the idiotic lackeys despite their labours and expenses in terms of lost men and women?

      Which war did the US really won by itself in its entire warring history???
