We see more and more of these “training exercises” on the streets of the America.
They are training but the key here is where and how they are training.They are not driving off road, they are not driving in simulated combat zones, they are driving in the streets of major US cities.
This is the latest training exercise in a major city and an escalation using heavy armored vehicles.
The first reports of this sort of thing had ground troops conducting”mock” stop and search exercises, we then saw black hawks flying over cities as training and a preparedness exercise !!!
So if this is training, training for what scenario ?
They are being trained to take over a city, shut down its infrastructure and round up the people.
If this is what they are planning and need to be trained to do so, where and when will they carry out the operation?
They have trained in a developed nation with a complex infrastructure, so saying this is training for the likes of Iraq or Afghanistan or another poorer less developed nation does not cut it in my view.
Another Martial Law Drill! Massachusetts Citizens Frightened By Midnight Military Exercises
August 3, 2012
Editor’s note: After this story was posted earlier today, the Sun Sentinel in Hollywood, Florida, reported on a drill and advised citizens not to worry:
People in Hollywood may be startled (again) by the sight of menacing looking figures rappelling from a Blackhawk helicopter over various public buildings. Don’t worry, though, it’s only a drill.
The Hollywood Police Department and the Department of Homeland Security are taking part in a Master Rappelling training exercise, according to a city notice.
The training began Thursday and is scheduled to continue Friday afternoon at several government-owned buildings. But the specific locations are being kept hush-hush for security reasons.
The Pentagon is conducting surprise military drills with increasing frequency around the country, alarming citizens and acclimating them to the presence of obtrusive combat technology and simulated warfare.
The latest in-your-face training exercise occurred in Plainville and Worchester, Massachusetts.
As usual, most citizens were unaware of the drills until helicopters swooped over their neighborhoods.
“Many residents were surprised and scared Wednesday evening when military helicopters descended on the vacant Wood School into the late hours of the night in a scene that might have appeared to simulate the United States’ special forces attack on Osama bin Laden’s compound last year.” the Sun Chronicle reported on Friday.
“The helicopters were landing around the Worcester Memorial Auditorium in Lincoln Square and buzzing neighborhoods, prompting many telephone calls and e-mails to the Telegram & Gazette from residents curious about what was happening,” another newspaper reported.
Even the cops were clueless. “A police officer sent to close off Main Street at State said he did not know what was going on, leaving the people around there to wonder. Left to their own devices, people thought the hubbub might be that it was filming for a new Sandra Bullock movie or that it was part of a police effort to round up all the gang members or prostitutes in the city.”
“We apologize for any inconvenience or unforeseen disturbance,” said Maj. Emily Potter, public affairs officer for the U.S. Army.

I have to say that this event, which is being labeled a “training exercise”, makes very little sense to me. U.S. Army troops all the way from Maryland running open exercises in armored personnel carriers on the busy streets of St. Louis? I know Maryland is a small state, but is there really not enough room at Ft. Detrick to accommodate a tank column and some troops? Are there not entire fake neighborhood and town complexes built with taxpayer dollars on military bases across the country meant to facilitate a realistic urban environment for troops to train in? And why travel hundreds of miles to Missouri? At the very least, this is a massive waste of funds.
On the other hand, such an action on the part of the Department of Defense makes perfect sense if the goal is to acclimate citizens…
