Another example of how they are trying to get us accustomed to seeing the military in the streets of America as well as actively training the police departments across the country in the use of military tactics and hardware.


A joint drill between military and police in South Florida involving troops storming a building in the middle of the night was characterized by local media coverage not as a frightening example of how Americans are being acclimatized to accept a state of martial law but as a ‘cool tourist story’. Panic-stricken residents in Coconut Grove were awoken at 1am to the sound of simulated gunfire and explosions as military helicopters hovered over buildings and dispatched troops to the ground. The Department of Defense drills prompted a deluge of 911 calls, but instead of asking why the military is terrifying American citizens on U.S. soil with drills designed to acclimate the public to accept martial law, local news station WSVN-TV framed the incident as a ‘cool tourist story’.

if the building was full of foreign troops then you'd expect the military to sort out the problem/lead the attack not the police so some sort of urban training for the flushing out of enemy soldiers should there be an invasion would be a good idea and sometimes the military bases don't have the full 5 star facilities of an actual high rise building to ensure that troops are ready for actual duties

Yea if we were at war and we were being invaded by a foreign army but we arent at war and have not been invaded by a foreign army since the war of 1812.

Heres a local news stations story on the simulation.
At least they gave prior warning.

Seriously though, I am 43 years old and this type of stuff is unheard of to me. I have never seen such a tight collaboration between the military and local law enforcement.

From military patrolling Minnesota streets on "training missions" to these mock raids... Call me paranoid but somethings going on.

Members of all branches of the military participated in the operation. The scenario was loud. There was lots of gunfire and building-rattling helicopters and fighter jets. “Helicopters came down with people, soldiers, coming down ropes and jumping from balcony to balcony,” Brugo said of the scene playing out at the empty Grand Bay, next to the Ritz. “They were throwing, like, fireworks, things that emulated bombs and grenades, and there was a lot of noise.” Brugo and other residents of nearby buildings in Coconut Grove were not surprised by the surprise attack, they had received notices of the impending war game and were told “not to be alarmed.”

I think they're preparing for civil unrest during/after the Nov 2012 elections. I feel that the POTUS will be re-elected???
