I was just made aware of this, although many of you may have.
"Following defeat in Federal Court of its plans to expand training at the Piñon Canyon
Maneuver Site (PCMS), Colorado, the Pentagon and its contractors, have ignored court
orders, maintained plans for land expansion on the most threatened ecosystem on Earth,
conducted unprecedented destructive maneuvers at the site, and *joined with the Air
Force to propose a massive expansion of military activity throughout the entire region
of southern Colorado and northern New Mexico."*
"At an estimated cost to taxpayers of $3 billion dollars, The Pentagon and its contractors also
announced plans to train a new Combat Aviation Brigade – 2800 soldiers, 600 ground
vehicles and 200 Apache, Chinook and Black Hawk helicopters – at the Piñon Canyon
Maneuver Site. If not stopped, Combat Aviation Brigades will enable Unmanned Aerial Systems
(drones and other robotic weapons) to maneuver from the ground up throughout the entire 94,000
square mile region."
"The proposal is part of a plan to establish the largest Joint Forces Future Combat Systems
training site in the world by expanding Joint Forces Special Operations Command air space
across northern New Mexico and southern Colorado for robotic warfare development,
low altitude flights and testing of high-tech lethal weaponry."
"The Pentagon and its private contractors are proceeding with plans to displace citizens
by condemning fragile public and private lands including the last intact shortgrass prairie
in all the American Great Plains while abusing national public disclosure, environmental
and cultural protection laws."
The world is currenty in a great battle with our governments to end the wars, not perpetuate them. Maybe this explains at least some of the
mysterious activity that has been cropping up in the CO/NM region lately.
