Posted on 03/28/2015 9:19:08 AM PDT by Varmint Al
Seven Southwestern states will soon be infiltrated by 1,200 military special ops personnel as part of a controversial domestic military training in which some of the elite soldiers will operate undetected among civilians. Operation Jade Helm begins in July and will last for eight weeks. Soldiers will operate in and around towns in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado where some of them wil drop from planes while carrying weapons loaded with blanks in what military officials have dubbed Realistic Military Training. ....snip....

Preparation for Martial Law?..............
Open the door to martial law? Home grown terrorists firing on Federal troops? Or are they just STUPID!
the likelihood that they’ll get any training that would be useful against,,ISIS? or Al Qaida on US SOIL...in populated areas is pretty slim.
carrying....a gun that loaded with blanks...in some neighborhoods..is probably not that bright in terms of Self Defense alone.
This remains a troublseome concept for me!!
We will and NOT with blanks.
Could be some good milcom listening
The LSE Event in Utah appears reasonably close to the Bundy Ranch.
Or is it closer to the NSA facility?
Doncha wish they were exercising defending our border??!?!?!?
Active Duty ping.

Sounds like a reenactment of “Red Dawn”, with a twist.
This seems like a bad idea, and makes me uneasy.
You fight how you train.
Our military is being trained.
Get it ?
Yes, the Communists that are behind it are right here, not in the Soviet Union or China.
If you see something, say something. Overload the phones with warnings of suspicious MSM reporters, totalitarian pols, and various other leftist cretins.
We should also put up red dots on the mailboxes of our favorite enemies.
This is a dis-info campaign designed to discredit anyone opposed to local police militarization and federalization, and the routine presence of the military on the streets and roads.
We will see MSM propaganda of how good these realistic military exercises are, and that blending in with ordinary Americans in the towns, cities and country is good for training overseas. BTW, don’t they have a town in Iraq that’s just like Lubbock Texas?
War gaming agains’t the real enemy. The American public.
They did this carpola out in NM about a year or so ago. Mr. GG2’s friend’s cousin got up in the night and went outside with his .22 and a flashlight and lit up some idiot soldier under his mobile home. When he looked around there were a bunch of them creeping around the whole mobile home park. The guy that the cousin caught was telling him not to shoot because he didn’t have any ammo in his weapon.
This kind of stuff is a recipe for disaster. And its totally out of line. The military is supposed to be training on their bases. I also heard they have invited some foreign troops to train with them. If that’s true that really frosts my grits.
Bundy is in Nevada.
