The Arctic: US's new battleground with Russia and China

The US military is conducting major military exercises. That may not come as a surprise, but these drills are occurring near the Northwestern state of Alaska.

The American navy is conducting the exercises in Islands west of Alaska near the Arctic Ocean; quite close to Russian territory. Some three-thousand military personnel are participating in the war games.

More than 100 explosive ordnance disposal group members are undergoing a training exercise. The extremely cold-weather drill, involving the explosive disposal forces, is the first of its kind.
