Video at link.
"Must-watch" (no transcript...only a minute & a half).
Regardless, what an abominable waste of resources.
Just use Detroit!
So, when they level it, will they re-build it ?
That’s actually a great idea.
Ha! Could have saved money and improved it all at once!
Do the fake cities appear like aggregated tiny, rectangular cement-and-cinder block Middle Eastern buildings, or like the typical American ones?
If it is the latter, be afraid.
They erected a mock church building?. . They deem it a necessary structure for defense training??!! WTF?!!
Replica of typical American town.
But it's worse. Go to the video @ 1:18, the shot of the subway cars and compare it with this shot of a Washington DC 'Metro' Orange Line car (note the logos on each):
This impresses me as more classroom/demo than tactical training. The buildings do not seem to be designed for tac ops and are widely spaced apart.
“The 300-acre training complex includes a headquarters, barracks, administrative, training and maintenance facilities, an Urban Area, a 12-mile Mobility Range, an 800 meter Known Distance Range, a light demolitions range and an indoor range.
“There’s also a mosque, a soccer stadium, a subway station complete with subway cars and a train station with real rail cars.”
Odd, no mention of the church that seemed to be front and center. That’s a steeple, not a minaret.
Otherwise, it seems that the biggest product of this facility will be buzzwords, like “Enhancing the proactive leadership paradigm in non-linear quality chaos”, yep, right out of Dilbert.
Sending millions to re-education camps will take a lot of organization and hard work.
To be GOVERNED is to be kept in sight, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right, nor the wisdom, nor the virtue to do so.
To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction, noted, registered, enrolled, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished.
It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, trained, ransomed, exploited, monopolized, extorted, squeezed, mystified, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, despised, harassed, tracked, abused, clubbed, disarmed, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and, to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, outraged, dishonored.
That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality.
