When the US conducts joint wargames with ANYONE, the other side always wins: the wargames always give the other side stuff that they don't even have--I was part of one in which an Australian fleet of AIRCRAFT CARRIERS destroyed the American fleet of aircraft carriers. Of course the Australian aircraft carriers were actually minesweepers pretending to be aircraft carriers, since Australia couldn't afford to operate a single aircraft carrier on its military budget.. The American side of all joint wargames is really the only side, since the OPFOR is using American platforms. "Winning" makes the Italians and Canadians, and Australians, and Israelis feel good about themselves.
