The photos are of the excersise Vigilant Guard conducted recently around the south. Personally I believe its more for when the government cracks down on citizens more than anything else but, officially its deemed somehting else. 911 has provided the US government with an open check with these types of excersises to practice in the open under "protection against terror" which might be the case but also serves purposes nafarious as well.
