Operation Peace Spring

On the 7th of October 2019, the White House announced that American forces would withdraw from Northern Syria, ahead of an anticipated Turkish military operation in the region. The response, worldwide, was of shock and disbelief: Were the Americans abandoning their loyal Kurdish allies? As the world watched on, Turkey launched Operation Peace Spring.

Voyage of the Damned: The Last (Only) ride of the Russian Second Pacific Squadron.

The Battle of Tsushima was only the final act in an ill fated voyage that was poorly planned and conceived in an desperate attempt to relieve the Russian fleet trapped in the Pacific.

With missile launches by North Korea, Kim’s threats to preemptively nuke the U.S., and Chinese aggression in the South China Sea have sparked one of the largest military drills to ever happen on the Korean peninsula. 300,000 South Korean servicemen and woman are joined by 15,000 of their U.S. counterparts to let the region know they are not to be fucked with.

Exercise Ssang Yong 14 is conducted annually in the Republic of Korea (ROK) to enhance interoperablility between U.S. and ROK forces by performing a full spectrum of amphibious operations while showcasing sea-based power projection in the Pacific.

Massive amphibious landings, live fire exercises, and mechanized columns that can shake a building down are happening all across the ROK. Kim is obviously spooked, but so are the U.S. and the South. When a crazy dictator threatens to nuke you preemptively that tends to set a bad tone, and leaves military commanders in Washington wondering whether or not they should hit the North first with a massive invasion.

“Things could get dicey in the next couple months,” – Bruce Klingner, a Korea expert at the Heritage Foundation think tank in Washington, D.C.

While the likelihood of an invasion is mute this level of mobilization by both militaries gives us a glimpse of what it would look like. Watch as 19 ships from the U.S. Navy and Republic of Korea Navy transit in formation as part of exercise Ssang Yong 16 off the coast of the Republic of Korea.

Later this month exercise Key Resolve will involve the participation of the aircraft carrier John C. Stennis and its strike group, the submarine North Carolina, F-22 Raptors and nuclear-capable B-2 bombers. Let’s see what Kim does next when there is so many strategic assets at his doorstep.
