U.S. War Exercise Postponed For “Budget Reasons”

Posted By on January 15, 2012

Guess the idea is….why waste money on an exercise if the real think is coming?  Or maybe not, as last week Europe wanted western countries to postpone an embargo against Iranian oil exports by 6 months because of poor european economies.

The United States and Israel have agreed to postpone a large joint military exercise planned for this spring.

The drill, slated for May and named “Austere Challenge,” was announced in November by Andrew Shapiro, U.S. assistant secretary of State for politics-military affairs, at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. The exercise would’ve included more than 5,000 U.S. and Israeli forces and, was a war game intended to simulate Israel’s ballistic missile defense. It would have  been the “largest and most significant joint exercise in the allies’ history,” Shapiro had said.

From Bloomberg:
