Old news but it re-surfaces every now and then. Every now and then due to internal political issue and the neighbors, the military has to train and be on alert.

KUWAIT CITY: Joint Gulf force the Peninsula Shield began a 17-day exercise in Kuwait on Sunday as officials said the war games were not related to unrest in the region.

"The exercise was prescheduled and agreed for years. It is unrelated to any regional or political events," the head of Kuwaiti army public relations, Brigadier Abdulaziz al-Rayes, was cited as saying by the KUNA news agency.

It aims at "activating the concept of joint defence... and implementing the unified defence strategy of the Gulf Cooperation Council states," he said.

I saw this earlier today and thought for sure someone here would declare WW-III has begun.

Thanks for posting the headsup for the rest of us...

Yeah. I'm surprised not many jumped the gun on this thread
