Military Rolls Tanks Onto St. Louis Streets…But Why?


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 ?

What Does It Take to Start A Revolution? (Are we in danger of having one?)

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

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…

  1. Several prophetic posts and video stories point to a significant event surrounding a central/mid-continnential earthquake with an epicenter at St/ Louis… the question becomes: Is it a lucky guess that maneuvers are underway there, or how would the military have any pre-knowledge of an ‘event’ that might precipitate an earthquake in that region?/….or
    …maybe there really are some God-fearing men at the top of the military brass who just might have a little more Spiritually anchored insight than they are revealing at this time?!..

  2. The very fact that the US military is apparently not being transparent about this matter is indicative that they are not keeping American citizens in the loop – which means that they consider that the “citizens” are part of the problem. That is a very dangerous thing for an elected government to do in a republic such as America. Transparency is the watchword today, and they must be made to either give some good reason for this, or cease to inject a police-state operation – because this definitely smacks of “them” and “us” – a differentiation that cannot exist in a free democracy.

    • you are sure right Réal Laplaine.
      A republic which the US is meant to be, should and i think will not stand for such things.I have had the thought as have many others that a silent coup d’état has taken place in the states and we now see the military organizing to defend their new masters as the public become aware of what has happened and maybe the seeds of rebellion begin to germinate.

  3. This worries me. What of Posse Comitatus? I was, a long time ago, part of a military force placed on the streets to restore order. Rioting, shootings and spook games that lasted thirty years, killed over three thousand souls.

    When soldiers are used for domestic suppression, and I have no doubt this is a display of intent, well that is indicative of government fear. When you look at the continental US, the landmass, well in reality only cities can be controlled. That explains the drone issue. As our dear heroes have found in Afghanistan, drones offer a capability that was undreamt of a decade ago.

    This amounts to a matador waving the red rag. It will only be a matter of time before a few bulls react, then watch Waco Mk 2. Or worse.

    Do not admire these men. Do not support them. They are volunteers, not conscripts. they “took the shilling” by free choice.
    Finally, pray they see truth and ultimately side with The People.

  10. As an investigative writer (7 books) who has been following ‘unusual’ military activity to typically include clear violations of Posse Comitatus (aiding or replacing law enforcement), this is an interesting cover story. I can speak with some confidence to the fact that the traditional way you train troops on equipment is to send the troops to the the base which has the equipment, you don’t send both the troops and the equipment to a third destination.

    Get a close look at the unit patches and look it up. Last time anyone did that (both Hurricanes Katrina and Andrew decades earlier), turned out they were psychological warfare units. There is a long history of military exercises under cover stories where Psyops to see how civilians react to their presence turned out to be the real mission. Visit my blog page for several articles recently posted which touch upon this (wordpress). I have a free sample newsletter available by request which also touches upon it (century link net).

    • Thank you Mr Sweeney. I will read on those very things. Recently a similar thing has happened within the UK, albeit on a smaller scale. Air defence units and a strong military presence due to the Olympics on London streets.
      In Britain there is only a need for Parliament to authorise use of Territorial ( volunteer ) forces domestically. Regular troops have often been used, military “observers” are often seen at large protests and during riot conditions.

      As an observer of course my question is, as usual why? National Guard Units would be the appropriate response.
      However, thanks for pointing in a new direction.

      • I’m familiar with ‘observer’ programs. Still illegal here under Posse Commitatus, which they would like to repeal and make us an official Police State. Observers are accompanied almost always by under cover operatives who infiltrate the ranks of protesters generally to act as agent provocateurs, or to try to ID ‘leaders’ and make friends. This happened in the Rodney King riots. More than one instance of National Guardsmen (Psy Op units) being arrested as troublemakers and then quietly released. One such arrest involved a carload of them… in possession of molotov cocktails. Documented in The Spotlight, a D.C. newspaper known for never having to retract a story.

  11. Same here. MI5 and Special Branch will spend years infiltrating whatever they perceive as a threat. The latest of course being Muslim communities. “Secret” courts are the latest government proposal, to allow evidence by the infiltrators to be given without public scrutiny.

    When we look at the sorry mess that the west has become, well we have ourselves to blame. We fell for the lies. Much of the older population remember wartime restrictions and accept, many younger folk do not even question.

    Those of us who do, well I have a mantra. “Convert one citizen a day, make them question, then you are doing good”.

      • Indeed. Short of a military defeat at the hands of another, or a change in foreign policy, this will continue.
        However, undirected history, the type called “Murphy’s Law”, well that has an effect on the best laid plans. I feel this is now what we must hope for.

        Watch Syria closely, Turkey has taken the western bait sensing increased influence. Israel, as usual, directs the puppets hoping for war. The regimes in pro western arab states are hanging by a thread, also hanging people by their feet no doubt.
        If Egypt’s military tolerates civilian government, well it may all go to plan. My gut tells me otherwise, Vladimir is keeping his cards close, the Chinese also.

      • Hillary Clinton’s demand that Russia and China pay the price for “blockading” the Syrian peace process may lead to more global strife. Will opposition to US policy now equate to supporting tyranny and evil?

        On Friday, Friends of Syria sought ways to press a transition plan on official Damascus. Assad regime officials forming a unity government with the opposition to lead the Arab country to presidential elections had been a key outcome of global talks in Geneva the previous week.

        In a sudden turn, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pounced on Moscow and Beijing for “holding up progress” in the Syrian crisis. Clinton urged the 100-plus nations gathered in Paris to make it clear to Russia and China that the two will “pay a price” for supporting the Assad government

  12. Mmm! Makes you think that statement. However, thats the reality and given Chinese and Russian axes to grind, well some would say there is a kind of poetic justice.
    The irony is that many of us who served this machine, well we are beginning to hope for the wheels to fall off. The “war” of the banks has started in earnest, central banks at each others throats. This could get nastier.

    • “Warning shots will not be fired”
      Paul Joseph Watson

      A newly leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” outlines how military assets are to be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.

      The document (PDF), which is dated 2006 and was used for a self-learning course at the U.S. Army Military Police School at Fort McClellan, makes it clear that the operations described in the manual apply to both “CONUS and OCONUS,” meaning inside the Continental United States and outside the Continental United States.
