Well, I had an interesting talk with a man a few weeks ago. I don't know much other than he is a retired war vet.
During this talk he went on to explain that several years back (I'm guessing a couple decades?) that he had been working on a railroad (I believe near a base).
He whitenessed a mass of UN gear being hauled through the area, and that it had been buried near the railroad.
His theory is that the gear has been buried there ahead of time in the case of a U.S. societal break down, so the troops can come back and unearth the equipment in the future for use against the citizens.
I believe this person has no reason to lie or make stuff up, he seamed pretty on top of everything that was going on.
(AND NO, I am not going to speak to this person and ask any questions you guys have for him, he's not a personal friend and it would be rather rude of me.)
So my question is ATS. Help me find evidence supporting this, as well as tell me your thoughts.

Here is why I don't buy this claim:
First off, they wouldn't barry the equipment as it is far too much effort, especially when they can just store it on a military base or another above ground storage facility. Also, the way that the military works is kind of funny. They don't really do things how normal companies would do them, to save money or time. Let's say that the UN came in to keep the peace because of some *event. What would happen is that they would start to ship the equipment in from whatever country was being mandated or volunteered to participate, after they got the mandate or mission. the equipment would then come through air, sea and rail. If it was the US government enforcing a UN function in its own country (or anywhere else), they would just switch regular military vehicles over to the UN mission by painting them as appropriate. In other words, they turn regular military vehicles into the UN vehicles upon orders or mission. There really is no such thing as an UN Army. UN soldiers are just regular army soldiers from a host nation's military that have been tasked with a UN mission.
Also, what many people don't realize, is when they see the UN vehicles on the trains, it's because the US is shipping them, selling them or otherwise providing them to the UN. Either we are building the vehicles here and sending them to the UN or it is another host country's vehicles and they are here most likely for some type of training or upgrading. People seem to never think of this option.
