'Security threat' Russians to join Canadian, U.S. forces in exercise

'Security threat' Russians to join Canadian, U.S. forces in exercise 06 Aug 2010 Canadian and U.S. military personnel will take part in a historic exercise next week with their Russian counterparts to battle airborne terrorism [aka their own false flags], just days after Defence Minister Peter MacKay claimed that Canada was facing new security threats from Russia. ...For months Canadian and U.S. personnel at NORAD have been planning the Aug. 8 exercise, which will involve for the first time, the Russian military and NORAD co-operating in tracking and intercepting a hijacked aircraft. Critics have said that MacKay was using a routine Russian patrol flight last week, claiming it was a threat to Canada, in an attempt to sell the public on the Harper government's plan to spend $16 billion buying new fighter aircraft.
