that is how many americans think. its stupidity. the government trys to burn the constitution while ripping up the bill of rights and the people make excuses for them. the military should never be training for urban warfare in the U.S. and in response to that whole mubai thing: thats what local and federal tactical teams are for...thats their job!!!!! when your military is admittedly training for urban warfare on american soil, there is something terribly wrong. quit trying to rationalize it!!

Wake up people!! Holy crapola, you are just now noticing US Troops training in large cities? This has been going on since 9/11. The Bush Administration started this, saying that the US Military needed more...

The more i think about this, the more i just cannot see why they have to do it in a US city?
In my experience, if you want a training facility to train in that is similar to the one you will be operating in, you have one built that accomodates the similarities. If these guys are the best of the best, they have the budget to do this!...

Are people just deciding to ignore that there were military exercises held there in 2000 as well?
BEFORE any sign of financial crisis
All it states is that training was done there in 2000. It doesn't describe the training, just as the spokesperson conveniently avoids stating that this type of training isn't usually conducted in urban areas.
They have training facilities for this....
Why is this offensive rather than defensive?...
... When have they seemingly been in preparation for a battle against their own citizens?...
This cannot be ignored or denied, they are training to fight against Americans in an American city. They are doing it in the open to either scare people, incite suspicion or prepare the public for what is to come.

This is not at all unusual in Louisiana.
Lastly I want to mention this. A significant population of New Orleans is violently mentally ill. I don't know if its drugs or what, but I had an easier time working with Taliban detainees in Afghanistan than working with the evacuees from New Orleans.
Now, I want to say.... How dare you? ...They have been through what others can't even imagine in their ugliest nightmares!!!...

You have got to be kidding me....
It's called a training exercise. That's this thing the military does where they go out in the field and train for different scenarios so that they know what to do if they are ever put in a certain situation for real. That is what the military does. That is what every military since the beginning of time has done. They train.
It's not this big conspiracy that some of you in this thread would like to believe it is.
ATS server ate the long reply I had written, so here's the short condensed version, born out of my lack of patience to repeat myself:
I assure you I kid you not. The military are serfs, ...

Oh my, I live here in New orleans, this was announced in the paper and on the news last week that the Military would be holding the aircraft training exercies. We do have a HUGE base here:
New Orleans NAS Joint Reserve Base - Belle Chasse, LA
Naval Air Station, Joint Reserve Base, New Orleans, Louisiana is located 20 minutes south of downtown New Orleans, and is home to VP-94, VFA-204, VR-54, Louisiana Air National Guard, U.S. Air Force Reserve, U.S. Coast Guard, and the U.S. Customs Service. When the base was redesignated in May 1994 to add "Joint Reserve Base," it broke the paradigm of Naval Air Station.
NAS JRB New Orleans maintains a 24-hour operational capability to support launches and recoveries of U.S. Coast Guard Sea-Air Rescue, U.S. Customs Alert and 159th Fighter Group/Louisiana Air National Guard, North American Air Defense Command alert requirements.
Also they are using SIMULATED AMMUNITIONS similar to paintball ammo.
Amazing, we want a well trained military, just not if it has to train at home???? WTH???
And yes, they are training for URBAN WARFARE - just like the majority of the action seen in Operation Enduring Freedom.
Would you rather more dead soldiers and more lost equipment??
I would rather not have dead civilians, if and when one of those helis malfunctions and crashes into a populated area.
There's no reason they need to train like that over a populated area, besides fear mongering. Let them train over one of the military bases....

You know what disturbs me more than this? The fact that those in military and their lack of questioning. How many of those sheep are going to be willing to follow blind orders to take the lives of the innocent? How many of them are going to follow the PTB because of fear instead of standing with those they are bombing but yet somehow think they are being patriotic? The military that will be implementing this type of thing will be bombing their own kind.
God fear tactics, control methods and the hegelian dialect process all works too well on the "UNEDUCATED MASSES".......
Getting ready for the next war? Probably.
Suppose we are the targets of their bombs should this war occur?
Suppose the free thinkers and real patriots are the marked ones?
I need a supply of rocket launchers......
