U.S. Stratcom to Conduct Nuke Exercise ‘Global Lightning 14’

U.S. nuke drills follow ‘massive’ Russian war games

The U.S. Strategic Command (Stratcom) will hold large-scale bombing drills this week, just days after Russia held “massive” war games simulating a nuclear attack by U.S. and NATO.

A total of sixteen B-52 bombers B-2 strategic bombers will participate in the war games called “Global Lightning 14” starting  May 12 through May 16, said the command.

The purpose of this war drill is to “demonstrate flexibility and responsiveness in training scenarios throughout the continental U.S.,” the command said.

“This exercise provides unique training opportunities to incorporate the most current technology and techniques in support of our mission. Continued focus and investment in our strategic capabilities allow US Stratcom to deter, dissuade, and defeat current and future threats to the U.S. and our allies.” said Admiral Cecil Haney, head of Strategic Command.

“This exercise provides unique training opportunities to incorporate the most current technology and techniques in support of our mission,” said the Strategic Command commander, Adm. Haney. “Continued focus and investment in our strategic capabilities allow US Stratcom to deter, dissuade, and defeat current and future threats to the U.S. and our allies.”

Both the Defense Secretary Hagel and the CIA Director have thus far declined to categorize Russia as an enemy.

“We’re not at war with Russia, so do define an enemy as being at war or not at war?” Hagel said on ABC’s This Week. “[Russia is] an adversary in Ukraine, sure,” he said.

“But I think that’s a little simplistic to get into either enemy, friend, partner, so on,” Hagel said. “Russia continues to isolate itself for a short-term gain. The Russians may feel that somehow they’re winning, but the war was not about just short term.”

“Global Lightning 14 is designed to provide training opportunities and to test and validate command and control procedures for U.S. Strategic Command and its subordinate units,” said an Army spokeswoman.

“Just as technology changes, so do the threats. This exercise provides the opportunity to incorporate the most current technology and techniques in support of our mission.”

“[Stratcom] is constantly honing its capabilities to deter, dissuade, and defeat current and future threats to the U.S. and our allies,” she said.
