What is going on here!? They've had exercises at local schools and colleges for most of this past year. Low flying planes!? The government is really getting ready for something, and we'd have to be blind not to see it. I wonder exactly how is it that some of these exercises are damaging peoples homes?

Once those homes are damaged...well, that's where the "relocation specialists" come in. Are you getting the picture?

From the story, "If you encounter any damage from this training exercise, or have any questions, you're asked to contact Captain Robert Shuford. You can do that by calling 1-877-676-0396, or through email at robert.shuford@usmc.mil." How about someone call Captain Shuford and find out WTF they are doing walking around towns with guns and low-flying planes in the first place!?

Ladies and Gentelmen, I am the public affairs offcier for the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit. I want to clarify that the Marines are not conducting "tests" as the headline states. We are currently conducting a training exercise called RUT, which stands for Realistic Urban Training. The prupose of this training is to train in unfamiliar urban settings, which replicates what we might have to do in a foreign country when we deploy next year. Community support has been great so far and we appreciate all your help. We will not be flying low near Willow St anymore but we do have more flight operations going on until Wednesday night. If anyone has any questions or concerns feel free to call our hotline at 877-676-0396. Thanks for you patience, Capt Robert Shuford

next year


Iraq nor Afghanistan look anything like American towns. Iran is very modern with modern housing and looks similar to American cities.

I think this man knows something we do not know.

Wonder how houses got damaged?

I left a comment, waiting for approval, asking the "Capt." if they were using tanks or something.

Weird. What the hell are they doing bothering a regular community like that? The government doesn't have the jurisdiction to do this. I think this is totally wrong.

I wouldn't read into it THAT deeply. Iraqi towns don't CLOSELY resemble our MOUT towns on Camp Lejeune or Fort Bragg, or the abandoned March Air Force Base housing area. We can't really afford to build a bunch of giant replicas of Iraqi and Afghani towns, so we work with what we've got, and they do well enough for out troops to learn how to properly patrol, fight, and survive in urban environments - granted they're all still a little green until they've made a trip or two over, but that's the nature of the beast, they don't know everything they need to know until they've had their trial by fire.

Besides, you'd probably be pretty surprised by how some of the cities look - Fallujah, for example, doesn't really look TOO much different than any other "average" city, it's just dirtier and, well, a little bombed-out.
