I understand your point. I just don't agree with it. At all.
This type of action is forbidden by our Constitution. I don't understand why people didn't scream from the rafters when they removed the Posse Comitatus act a few years back. (actually, I do understand. The reason is the vast majority of Americans are morons)...
This is just another example of the Government capitalizing on a catastrophic event. Just like 9-11, they have used the Aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to move more towards a Police-State. People SHOULD be *furious* over this, but they aren't.
Yes, when there is a catastrophic event, crime goes up. It happened after that Ice-Storm we had here recently. In my opinion, what should infuriate people is the fact that our Police Units are increasingly seeking the help of the Military.
What was that story about a month back about National Guard Troops patrolling with Police in California doing sobriety checks? This is illegal, folks. Raise hell about it!

Wow ever since the flood, New Orleans has turned into some kind of testing ground for the government. I've even heard conspiracy theories that the flood was caused by weather modification. Why New Orleans?

The "bombs" are likely artillery simulators, they are mostly harmless and used to simulate artillery or mortar strikes during training excercizes.
the "black" helicopters are probaly UH-60 Blackhawks.
While the motives of such a FTX (Field training excercize) is dubious I would not be alarmed yet, these are likely isolated excercized conducted by small specialized units.
Army wide none of this stuff is happening and I heard nothing about any impending invasions on US Soil.
SPC WJB, US Army...OUT.

Yeah training. For what? A flood? A hurricane? Since when do you stop a hurricane with choppers and bombs at 10pm over New Orleans? Oh, I get it, maybe they are training for a covert alien mission.

As to Jones. I don't think any adult who behaves as he does in his work will ever influence anyone but adolescents.
