Obama invites Russian troops into U.S.

Have no fear, Obama has invited the Russians here

A military team of airborne troops from Russia will go to the U.S. in May for a joint anti-terror exercise, a Russian defense ministry official said.
The New York Daily News reports that a detachment from Russia's Airborne Assault Forces (AAF) will take part in the exercise between May 24-31 at Fort Carson, Colorado, said defence ministry spokesman Col. Alexander Kucherenko.
"This is the first time such an exercise is being held," he said.
"The AAF will contribute a special task group that will exercise with US special service weapons," he said.
The Russian group will arrive a week before the start of the drills, he added.
The exercises, which will mark the first time the respective country’s two airborne forces have held joint drills on U.S. territory, will revolve around the the “reconnaissance of imaginary terrorists’ camp and a raid,” and will also involve evacuations of the troops by helicopter.
The Russian soldiers will also be given access to U.S. special service weapons at Fort Carson.
