My thanks to Mr. T.W. for bringing this to our attention: it's being reported in various alternative media sources that there was a NATO exercise being conducted during the shootdown of MH 17. However, not so according to the US Army Times:

U.S. Army Europe exercise in Ukraine delayed

    So NATO who twittering it’s thumbs with nothing to justify their existence is back to playing chicken with the Russians and the rest of the world. Grow up and get a life folks your playing a dangerous and deadly game lots of living creatures and get hurt and killed thanks to your antics.

    NATO naval “Breeze 2014” exercises were held from July 4 thru July 13, as per “Dueling NATO, Russia Naval Exercises On Black Sea” at http://www.EurasiaNet.org/node/68961.

    ‘Vessels took part from Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey, Greece, Italy, Britain & U.S.’ as per VoA & Eurasianet.

    “Sea Breeze” name changed to “Breeze 2014” possibly because Ukraine had almost always hosted “Sea Breeze” naval exercises — until 2014.

    USS Vincennes & USS Donald Cook did not participate. ;-).

    Webster Tarpley also reported on the NATO “exercise” going live
    [shooting down of MH 17],
    on this week’s edition of World Crisis radio.

    Although NATO discussed delay of “Breeze 2014” naval exercises until August (see http://en.itar-tass.com/world/739279), Voice of America confirmed that these NATO naval “Breeze 2014” exercises did occur.

    See “NATO Black Sea War Games End” at http://www.VoAnews.com/content/reu-nato-black-sea-war-games-end/1959529.html & “NATO Black Sea Naval Exercise (July 2014)” at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLm0NjxNxFI.

      Anyone see this in the second article above,

      “Romanian Navy said exercises involved commercial traffic monitoring, reaction to asymmetric threat warnings, anti-submarine warfare and artillery firing.”

      This article was published on July 17th at 9:42 am, hours before the plane crashed. The exercises were supposedly finished days prior on the 13th, but why was this article written 5 days later? The whole thing smells fishy.

    Yes, Joseph, the U.S.-Army/Europe “Rapid Trident 14” military exercise was postponed, as per your linked Army Times article.

    However, without Ukraine, NATO did hold its “Breeze 2014” naval military exercises at or about time of MH17 shoot-down. See “NATO Holds Reduced Black Sea Naval Exercises without Ukraine” at http://rt.com/news/170380-sea-breeze-2014-bulgaria (July 4 article).

      Webster Tarpley, related in above show that, the “Breeze” 2014 was a departure from the SOP “Sea Breeze” nomenclature, used for years.

        Now it comes out in the news “U.S. spy plane fleeing Russian jet invaded Swedish airspace on July 18th. The day after the Ukraine plane crash. They sure we’re busy that week.
