It means that it is so unoriginal that it is boring. See, I can be derisive towards a topic with SAT words too.

ETA: Ooooh derisive. That's another good word.


I didn't mean what you call 'SAT' words. I wasn't using them myself.

Ok ok. I'm sorry for having a little joke at your expense. I just have trouble taking this conspiracy seriously.

I never said the entire State Guard was going, but what would they do if every member was needed for an emergency in the future? Budgets go over. And what do you think of as small? Do you have a source as to how many? As for embedding, I have given examples already.

Yet not the same.

Budgets go over, yes, but not by THAT much if the governor wants to keep his job. It's reported that there are 2,000 members of the State Guard. To monitor an exercise this large, even in Texas, they would need a good portion of those to do it, UNLESS, there was a headquarters element at SOCOM doing the liaising with them, and reporting back to the governor.

Yes, you gave examples, but the simple fact is that reporters embed with a tiny fraction of the total exercises that occur in the US, and when they do, it's usually a PR stunt to show people what's going on. There is no requirement for the military to allow a reporter to embed with any unit, anywhere, under any conditions. It's entirely up to the Pentagon, and the major commands involved.

It was a comparison. I guess you didn't understand that.

I stand by what I said.

People are answering your questions many of whom which have experience in the military yet you are arguing with them.

Multitudes of people have explained to you why the reporters are not being allowed to tag along. You can't seem to comprehend it so explaining it to you again is an exercise in futility.

I wasn't asking very many questions. I was asked a ton of unrelated questions and returned with the research, though.

Can anybody wrap their heads around the thought that many of us are completely distrustful of the government in all it's forms, or uniforms, and that this is the reason for fear of what may happen. Regardless of who is in office at the moment, people fear the things they don't know about. Plain and simple. Telling the US populace that there is nothing to see here when there is certainly something going on does not inspire trust. Maybe noting will happen. But is it wrong to question then outcome of something we don't know anything about. I thought that capacity was one of the things that separated humans from animals. Healthy distrust of the government and the press should not be referred to as silly, or stupid, just because someone doesn't see it just like you do.

Even if select members of the Press were allowed to observe 95% of conspiracy believers would just claim the press is covering things up, not reporting the truth, and involved in the conspiracy.

Lastoria said it is not possible to allow a journalist to travel with Special Operations forces in the field, citing the isolated nature of the mission and the need to protect the identity of the forces involved." .


'to protect the identity of the forces involved'
Does that mean that some of the forces come from overseas? Do they they slanted eyes, do the speak with Russian Accents??

Remember this story - "DoD confirms Russian Troops to Train on U.S. Soil". Info wars, 27 April 2012?

How difficult would it be to gather any and all info from the net on jade-helm, organize an independent group of journalists and record everything and anything?

Just because mainstream press isn't invited for a first-class seat doesn't mean it can't be documented first hand and up close.

that the press has been banned from this military exercise


Please show us exactly where the press have been banned from visiting the locations where this exercise is taking place.

Oh, it looks like they are not actually banned!

Because that is EXACTLY what they are training for Mr. Madison....

No, because Special Forces can't have their faces seen because they operate behind the lines and without support.

Foreign troops train in the US all the time. In fact some are stationed here permanently.

they don't do it in a civilian setting though.

They train wherever the US troops are training. If that's in a civilian setting, then yes, they do. They're here to train with the US, so they train anywhere the US does.

People just have to deal with the fact that the military is not and should not ever be transparent.

We already allow the world to know to much about what we do,
and it costs in lives and military superiority.

Secrecy should be a priority in most cases.
Why telegraph to the enemy what we can and are practicing for?

People gotta get over their paranoia as the public is not the enemy.
Just my thoughts on training exercises of almost any kind involving the military.
