I've lived in Colorado for the last 10 years, and grew up here as well. I've honestly not noticed anything out of the ordinary, and I do plenty of
work on the military bases as well (and used to serve in Fort Carson). Until they recently closed Rocky Flats, Colorado has always been a hotspot for
NORAD is here. Pueblo Chemical Depot is here (I'm often there doing work). Air Force academy, a medical research center, Fort Carson (often on this
base, there is a lot of military hardware that gets shipped around via rail here), etc.
If I had to guess why they build so much stuff here, I'd think that it's not near the coast for one (not an easy target for ships or what-not with
less-than-great ranges with missles or launched aircraft), and there is plenty of open space for another. It's fairly centralized as far as it goes,
a hub of highways going neatly every direction, and plenty of rail service.
DIA: I've never noticed anything out of the ordinary, and I've been there plenty, including in some of the flight control rooms, etc. My personal
belief is that the artists are just freaky, I don't think they meant to depict anything NWO-ish. There is other stuff that is just ugly. For
example, there was a big ol' horse statue out front, and man.. it was spooky! It had evil eyes, and actually frightened some who visited and saw it
for the first time.
I've heard of tunnels, but I've never had a hint they actually exist. There are plenty of tunnels under DIA, but simply for their luggage and
transit system. The few folks I've personally known who work at DIA have never seen anything suspicious, and I've asked, since I was curious about
the stories of way more tunnels than needed for luggage and passenger transit. So as far as I am concerned, those are just unsubstaniated rumors.
As for WHY they are building a huge base, I'm stumped. Especially since the Army has been on a building down phase for a long while. Old bases I
served at like the Presidio, all closed or reduced to a skeleton crew. The enviromental company I work for does plenty of construction work for the
military, and they've been taking apart ships, military bases, etc., for a long while.
The only change was after 9/11, where the work increased for fortifying existing military bases. Building such a massive base.. that's strange to
me. I don't get it. Consider Fort Carson.. there is plenty of room there. There are tank ranges, we'd go on long field marches and not see a
soul.. it's big. That is, for what they have there now, it's plenty. I can't fathom why they'd need a ginormous base. But I'll keep my ears
peeled, the company I work for often is in the mix for military construction jobs and so on. Curious to see what comes down the pike now.
