Bulgaria: Bulgarian-US Naval Exercise Postponed USS Truxtun. File photo.

The military exercise of Bulgaria's, Romania's and the US navies was postponed due to bad weather. 

According to Bulgaria's Defense Ministry the start of the exercises will be postponed by 24 hours, while all other events with the USS Truxtun will be cancelled. 

The US navy ship sailed into the Black Sea against the background of the growing tensions in Crimea and caused speculations that they are the reason for its visit.

According to the US Navy, however, the joint military exercises which are supposed to take place in the western part of the Black Sea have been planned well in advance.

Is this a joke !! NATO can only operate in good weather? What do they plan to do - send a message to any adversary saying its too cold to play today, let's meet up when it is sunny and the sea is nice and calm.
