In the midst of a virus epidemic that’s shut much of Europe down, the US has sent 30,000 Army troops to six European countries for war games. As the soldiers emerged from their transport planes they shook the hands of US and European military officials, completely ignoring the danger of transmitting or contracting the corona-virus. DEFENDER-Europe 20, the largest deployment of U.S.-based forces to Europe for an exercise in more than 25 years, is supposed to protect the people of Europe from the threat of Russian attack. Even if we don’t care about the people who live in these countries, or our troops, what happens when they return to the US? #spreadingcontagion.
