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.
Furthermore, doing a thorough search returns no results other than reports of this event.
You would think that if they had conducted anything similar in training in NO before, there would be some evidence of it, some discussion about it,
just as there is this one.
People were not prepared for this, they have no frame of reference. Even the people talking about it state over and over that they HAVE NEVER SEEN
THIS BEFORE! Therefore this training has not been done before and it is highly unusual and suspicious.
I have never in my life seen any military "training" in urban areas where they are in choppers, approaching buildings, landing on roofs, setting off
ammunition of ANY kind. This just doesn't happen!
They have training facilities for this.
Did they need to do any of this before going into Iraq or Afghanistan?
Why is this offensive rather than defensive?
People really need to learn English and understand what isn't being said as much as what is. I don't mean that to offend you, as a writer I see it
all the time in advertising and media. People never focus on what isn't being said.
In advertising it's fascinating, people put on products "now 10% less fat" and market it as a diet version, and no one notices that it was 80% fat
to begin with!
Politicians also always avoid answering things in a definitive response, they blur the language, it's really quite clever and it works.
They can go back to that any time they like and say "I didn't say that this was the case, I said that 'as far as I am concerned' or 'it is my
It leaves everything open to interpretation, and that is exactly what they've done here by stating that they carry out military exercises
They might well do, but when have they been in urban areas? When have they involved mock-battle? When have they used explosives? When have they
seemingly been in preparation for a battle against their own citizens?
In the past they have been defensive, preventing attack from external forces. When before have they blatantly ran an exercise for urban combat in an
urban American city obviously designed to test fighting against citizens?
I understand your reluctance to believe that there is anything untoward. This would scare the crap out of me if I was American. But then it would make
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.
