    FEMA: National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09)

    Why do we need these countries to help us in the first place when our military is RANKED #1?

    If we can fight and win 2 wars at one time, we CAN'T handle terrorism on our land by ourselves?????

    Something is not right.

    Because terrorism knows no borders and if you read the premise of the exercise,
    >>> The NLE 09 scenario will begin in the aftermath of a notional terrorist event outside of the United States, and exercise play will center on preventing subsequent efforts by the terrorists to enter the United States and carry out additional attacks.<<<<<

    it makes sense to include those nations where the attack may take place and work in concert with them for a possible scenario...

    I was wondering what two wars you thought we'd won. Can't be Iraq and Afghanistan.

    US was monetary and material support first and foremost but the USSR's bloody fight against the German invasion saved the allied asses in the war in Europe. If they weren't keeping Germany occupied in the east requiring most of Germany's resources and manpower those battles in North Africa, Italy, and France would have been disasters.
