[page 20] - In addition to increasing the amount of interdependence trained at the National Training Centers, which thus far has focused on CF centric and CF specific operations, is the discussion of future opportunities in other training venues. It was briefed to General Odierno, the Chief of Staff of the Army, on 30 January 2013 that there are additional near term opportunities for interdependence training through the Jade Helm series of exercises conducted by the United States Army’s Special Forces Command. This series of Unconventional Warfare training exercises provide a superb foundation for the execution of SOF specific and SOF centric training. U.S. Army Special Operations support to the 18th Airborne Corps’ February 2013 Joint Operational Access Exercise was also highlighted to the Chief of Staff of the Army as it provided an opportunity to train in a CF centric and CF specific manner. Additionally, the Afghanistan Village Stability Operations Academic Week hosted by Army Special Operations Forces prior to every rotation includes incoming Brigade Combat Teams. This effort is designed to increase interdependence through in depth analysis and cultural orientation prior to Operation Enduring Freedom deployments. Finally, additional opportunities exist to improve and train interdependence through the Army’s regionally aligned force concept within conventional forces. Given the current regional alignment of the Army’s Special Forces, Military Information Support Operations forces, and Civil Affairs, a long term relationship between these SOF regionally aligned forces and the pending conventional forces’ regionally aligned forces is logical. Training initiatives and alignments such as these have the potential to create the backbone for greater interoperability in Joint Chiefs of Staff exercises with partner nation forces overseas.

Special Forces frequently work behind the scenes. Sometimes they select targets for air strikes, sometimes they work with indigenous forces, and sometimes just causing mayhem and breaking things. They work in small teams, generally relying only on each other, so they frequently don't play well with others.

Could the military branches, police forces, media (includes holywood), government leaders and political farms.. make it anymore obvious they are gearing for war?
It's obvious they can't contain humanity the way current paradigm and state the world is in now; so they are hell bent on changing laws, false flags, attacking America's constitution... to prepare people for a new order.
The only Card left to play for the controlling factions is all out War; something humanity (that includes you reader) have no control or say over. Then they can hit reset and take a deep breath again, with new laws and a new order in place after chaos settles.
