U.S. ARMY LAUNCHES "JUNGLE WARFARE TRAINING" CAMP | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


U.S. ARMY LAUNCHES "JUNGLE WARFARE TRAINING" CAMP

The United States Army gave up its jungle training school in Panama in 1999 when the U.S. returned land there to the Panamanian government. A couple years later jungle training was all but phased out in the aftermath of the September 11th terrorist attacks as the Army focused money and manpower on preparing soldiers to fight in the mountainous desert terrains of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Now, surviving and fighting in tropical rainforests has once again recaptured the Army’s interest and sparked the launch of its first jungle training school in decades located some 30 miles inland from Hawaii's Waikiki Beach.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Part of the US Military's "pivot to Asia", I suppose; but this decision to bring back jungle warfare techniques telegraphs that this not for the US government's resolving its geopolitical conflicts in a peaceful way, full of moral, hard-won negotiations.
