    A handy map of some of the Russian and NATO/European military exercises from last year. I think it is very useful when intelligence agencies release unclassified reports like this, especially with military figures (they really help journalists writing on defense topics).

    OOOps, from today's Daily Mail.


    US soldiers accidentally reveal top secret locations of nuclear weapons on European bases after classified security protocol training becomes searchable on Google

    American soldiers stationed at military bases in Europe armed with nuclear weapons have been unknowingly sharing secret protocols and base details
    Military personnel used flashcard apps to study and memorize the details of the nuclear weapon systems
    They failed to realize the flashcards containing highly confidential information was available online which anyone could look up
    Flashcards contained details including info helping soldiers remember which vaults within a base contained nuclear weapons and which ones were empty
    By simply looking up the names of specific bases thought to contain nuclear weapons details including about passwords, security procedures were revealed
    Locations of security cameras and duress signal words soldiers can use when compromised were also included
    The flashcards dated back to 2013 but some were as recent as April 2021
    Bellingcat then cross-referenced data from the flashcards with other reports and images shared online by soldiers themselves to verify existence of nuclear vaults
    All flashcards have since been deleted after the military were asked for comment

    Czech Republic will buy Israeli-made SPYDER surface-to-air missile systems for 13.7 billion korunas ($630 million) to replace Soviet-era Kub systems in its possession to move its “military capability to the 21st century”

    US nuclear weapons may end up in Eastern Europe if Germany rejects them — NATO

    That is fine, that just makes those new nuclear weapon locations priority targets for Russian nuclear weapons.

    Good excuse to vapourise them... and probably the reason the Germans don't want them.

    Eastern European populations are by now thoroughly zombified into believing that Russia is both their greatest enemy, and will collapse any day now, and that all Western tech is superior and the whole invincibility myth of the M1 Abrams and all the rest of it.
    Well not all, but enough.

    So I doubt they'd object to US nukes on their soil.

    That is actually good... Russia has no sensible reason to invade any of those countries because they don't want the land or the people... but as a base for attacking Russia they are a potential threat so having US nukes there means they can target them with nuclear weapons which means they don't have to invade or occupy but they can eliminate them as a threat which they are...
