WWIII Prep? Troops Joined In Exercise To “Protect Arctic Circle”

A very interesting piece of information has been circulating around the internet that passed right by many people silently and without notice.  Just this past week, both American and Danish troops participated in a massive military exercise to protect the arctic circle.  

According to the official Marines website, Marines.mil:

In this scenario, civilian and Army role players took up the task of playing the citizens and opposition forces.

In order to practice those skills, the Marines, with an attachment of Danish troops, simulated retaking a city from enemy insurgents at Camp Grayling’s Combined Arms Collective Training Facility.

“We wanted to learn from the American troops and how they conduct urban fighting,” said Pvt. Rolf Paulsen, a rifleman with the Danish Home Guard. “If we should conduct multinational operations in the future, it’s useful to have a take on how Marines operate.”

The question in many people’s minds is: who are they preparing to protect the Arctic Circle from?  Polar Bears?  Migratory birds?  Also, some are asking, why now, with Jade Helm so close – another massive military exercise set to begin this summer in The United States.

It all began with a short blurb in a very small local news station in Michigan.  9 & 10 Michigan Local News reported this blurb on April 17th, 2015:

Members of the Michigan National Guard will be busy training in Northern Michigan this weekend.

The exercise called Arctic Eagle begins Saturday and runs through April 25 at Camp Grayling in Crawford County, Rockport State Recreation Area in Presque Isle County and in Mackinaw City.

They’re working on strategies to defend areas in the Arctic Circle.

Parts of Rockport State Recreation Area in Presque Isle and Alpena Counties will be temporarily closed down to the public.

Members of the Danish Military will join U.S. soldiers, Marines and others.

This small piece of information about the military exercise was given to Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show, who wrote:

From Martial Law Subjugation Directly to World War III

I have written extensively on how the North Pole will be the site of a major confrontation between the United States, her allies and the Russians. This scenario is part of World War III. Our military is training with foreign nations on American soil for World War III as evidenced by the news release from Michigan.

While many are finding reasons to worry, the Official United States Marine News Site – Marines.mil wrote an article yesterday outlining how the entire exercise went:

[*editor’s note: article shortened for ease of reading – to read the full report, visit Marines.mil]

Marines with 1st Battalion, 24th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division, Marine Forces Reserve, participated in Exercise Arctic Eagle at Camp Grayling, Michigan, April 24-25, 2015.

The Marines joined soldiers from the Michigan National Guard’s 272nd Regional Support Group and Danish Home Guard, an all-volunteer branch of the Danish military focused on national defense, at this joint service and international exercise. The exercise aligns a mutual desire to address the defense of key infrastructure in the Arctic Circle.

“The 272nd RSG approached the battalion to participate in Arctic Eagle and we jumped at the opportunity,” said Maj. Jason A. Charkowski, the assistant operations officer for 1/24. “The Danish Home Guard was part of the package. They participated in all of the major operations of this exercise and the opportunity to attach them to us is valuable training.

The value of the training comes from the chance to train with an allied force at Camp Grayling’s unique facilities, which include multiple urban warfare training areas and several ranges.

The event also incorporated the Coast Guard and civilian agencies, and spanned across different areas of northern Michigan.

In order to practice those skills, the Marines, with an attachment of Danish troops, simulated retaking a city from enemy insurgents at Camp Grayling’s Combined Arms Collective Training Facility.

“I want my Marines to learn to think for themselves, and I think this is a great exercise for that because there are a lot of different types of things to deal with out here, not just threats,” Skaggs said. “There are a lot of benign elements as well, and I want the Marines to be able to analyze that and determine a course of action for any given scenario.”

In this scenario, civilian and Army role players took up the task of playing the citizens and opposition forces, making it critical for the Marines and their Danish counterparts to adapt to the threats and non-threats of the situation.

“We wanted to learn from the American troops and how they conduct urban fighting,” said Pvt. Rolf Paulsen, a rifleman with the Danish Home Guard. “If we should conduct multinational operations in the future, it’s useful to have a take on how Marines operate.”

“What I took away from this was the importance of good communication,” Davey said. “It can be difficult to communicate when there is a language barrier.”

By prioritizing the available resources, the Marines were able to gain high level training and remain ready to respond to future contingencies.

We want to hear what you think about all of this?  Was it a harmless military exercise, or did it mean something more, as Dave Hodges suggests?  Comment below!
