    Yesterday I witnessed a huge navy build up in Cartagena Spain, Italian German and Spanish war ships, 2 aircraft carriers 3 subs and over 15 Fragtas, Including the Fragata Victoria (F-82) and Marques De La Ensenada The Marques is a mobile fuelling ship,

    I found this article today while looking for further information on the build up.

    Madrid, Feb. 25 (Prensa Latina) A total of 20 North Atlantic Treaty Organization warships will dock in Cartagena harbour in Murcia on Friday, prior to beginning drills in the waters of south-eastern Spain.

    Over 3,500 soldiers, various warplanes, and four submarines from 11 NATO member nations will take part in the Feb.28-March 10 maneuvers, called Noble Mariner 2011, according to local news reports.

    Ministry of Defense sources confirmed that the naval group is formed by the aircraft carrier the Prince of Asturias, the frigates Alvaro de Bazan, Victoria and Navarra, the tanker Marques de la Ensenada, and the Castillo warship.

    The exercises in the waters of Cartagena, Mar de Alboran, Almeria, and the Strait of Gibraltar will be under the command of Vice Admiral Juan Cuadrillero Pinilla of the Spanish Navy.

    Soldiers from Poland, Belgium, Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Britain, Norway, Portugal, and the United States will take part.

    The aim of the exercise is to ensure they “are fully prepared to respond, as required, for operations or crisis situations wherever in the world they may occur”. Or is it a pre-empt move to go to the North African seas.. My understanding of this is help is on it way ..
