US army builds fake city to shoot at during training
The Telegraph ^ | 13 Feb 2014 | Lucy Kinder

Posted on 02/16/2014 5:01:13 AM PST by ZULU

The US army has built a fake city designed to be used during combat training exercises.

The 300 acre 'town' includes a five story embassy, a bank, a school, an underground subway and train station, a mosque, a football stadium, and a helicopter landing zone.

Located in Virginia, the realistic subway station comes complete with subway carriages and the train station has real train carriages.

The subway carriages even carry the same logo as the carriages in Washington DC

As GOPJ insightfully posted.....mentioning the "mosque" infers military training against radical Muslims. It's not. It's a training site to teach US soldiers to control and kill American citizens.....

Hillary's been ready for ages. Remember when her hubby was getting lewinskied in the Oval Office?

Hillary took refuge on broadcast TV, doing her "Virgin Mary" act (decked out w/ ropes of virginal pearls) telling Matt Lauer that a "vast-right wing conspiracy" was vilifying her husband.

===============================================

The Clintons even have their very own Muslim terrorist to carry out their orders.

BACKSTORY Billy Boy Clinton was grinning like a simpering fool at the annual meeting of the tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative Foundation"....even Boobomba was there hugging Billy like they were old pals.....all in the wake of the bombshell news that:

<><> the tax-exempt Clinton Global Initiative Foundation uses shady financing;

<><> the tax-exempt Clinton Global Initiative had employed an active Muzzie terrorist named Gehad el-Haddad (The stupid Clintons did not know Gehad was Farsi for "jihad")

Gehad also knows how the Muslim Brotherhood launders money to finance terrorism, using "tax-exempt foundations."

==============================================

THE CLINTON FOUNDATIONS / MUSLIM TERRORISM CONNECTION --- The recent story that a Muslim terrorist was working at the Clinton Foundation AND conducting terrorist activities at the same time, explains why the Clintons just remade themselves into the hallowed "Clinton Family Foundation."

The Clintons doing their "Holy Family" act.

NOTE The Clintons' shady foundation financing is unveiled in a recent NYT expose of Clinton corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism.

I guess all those other MOUT sites I’ve used over the years means I should’ve been controlling and killing Americans by now. I need to stop slacking and get on it!

Reportedly it’s a mock-up of an AMERICAN style town/city. Certain conclusions come immediately to mind especially when you have other reports of ammo purchases, etc.

It it had been of a Middle-eastern style and construction then other conclusions would come to mind instead.

I just remembered this quote:

“Train as you mean to fight.”

Something to think about, don’t you think?

The photo looks more like a church than a mosque. Did they just say “mosque” instead of church so as not to alarm us?

I’ve done lots of training in mock ups, and built up areas. Not built up as my homeland though. This strikes me as very odd.

You got that right.

DHS and the State Dept recently published new exemptions in the Federal Register to welcome more terrorists seeking asylum in the US.......by screwing around a ban in the Immigration and Nationality Act that currently excludes refugees and asylum seekers who had provided limited material support, no matter how minor, to terrorists.

“These exemptions cover five kinds of limited material support that have adversely and unfairly affected refugees and asylum seekers with no tangible connection to terrorism: material support that was insignificant in amount or provided incidentally in the course of everyday social, commercial, family or humanitarian interactions, or under significant pressure,” a DHS official explained.

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson and Secretary of State John Kerry signed the Obama exemptions.

NOTE: Claiming "asylum" triggers endless monthly SS checks.

=================================================

BACKSTORY Federal outreach to Muslim American communities is a pillar of Obama counter-terrorism strategy
Washington post | 5/25/2013 | AP / FR Posted by tobyhill

Within hours of the Boston Marathon blasts, government officials and Muslims in Boston called each other to offer assistance. These calls were the fruits of years of cultivating such relationships in an effort to ultimately prevent the very type of attack Boston experienced April 15....

Representatives from the US Departments of Justice and Homeland Security called to offer support to Muslim communities......just in case MUZZIES suffered backlash or threats.

================================================

The building of the Roxbury mosque where the Boston bombers worshipped contains community intrigue, religious conflict, media controversy, foreign money, suspicions of extremist ties......and once-cocksure public officials---Boston Mayor Menino and then-Mass Sen Kerry---who retreated into a zone of silence after the bombing.

=====================================================

Bombers worshipped at Islamic Society of Boston's mosque.---built w/ strongarm sap-happy Menino's govt authority.

Kerry's "credentials," presented to Ohaha when the Secy of State job became available.

I have trained at plenty of MOUT sites over the years too yet I recognize that the situation here in America has...transformed fundamentally. They are militarizing the police, undermining Posse Comitatus, disregarding the constitution, stockpiling ammunition, purging and purifying the military leadership, and runni9ng the country into the ground via unsustainable economic policies. Wake up.

Reportedly??? Where was that reported? It is not in the article. What the article describes is a modern city. It could just as easily be any large city in Europe or even Canada or Australia.

Since this was built in 2004, where were the screams and yells then? I remember this being mentioned then and it didn’t bother me at all. It still doesn’t, in and of itself. It is not the training site that is problematic but rather what they are training for and against.

So elements in our government who are hostile to the military are going to use that military against American citizens? Not likely. I support this training. The better trained our guys are the better things will go if TSHTF.

“They” might control some brass but they would have to replace almost all the officers and NCO’s in order to gain control of the military. That would take 10-20 years if it were allowed to happen.

Nor does it bother me. Our military knows what I have known for years, viz. that if we have an open borders policy (thank you jorge busho), and if we're allowing tens of millions of America's enemies into the country (ragheads), then we are going to experience warfare within our borders. At some point.

What with the ragheads and jorge's buddies, the messycan cartels, the military is quite visionary.

Yes, I think it is pretty clear that was the idea. The signs in the city are all in English, not Arabic.

According to a lot of research on the internet there are between 43 to 55 million private gun owners in the US. There are about 800,000 police officers in the US. This results in the number of 122 private gun owners to 1 police officer. Draw your own conclusion.

Some points to ponder:

One of the items to provide a bridge to citizenship for illegal “immigrants” is to serve in the U.S. Military. The U.S. Military ALREADY has a large number of new citizens in its ranks.

Obozo has been purging the higher ranks of the military so the Pentagon more closely resembles HIS views on things, NOT ours.

A set up like this can just as easily be used by the paramilitary Gestapos which have replaced conventional peace officers AS WELL AS Obama’s extra-Constitutional “Civilian Police Forces”, i.e. Homeland Security, TSA, and an OCEAN full of various armed governmental department forces.

You're right, that is a church not a mosque. Mosque's have domes, never a steeple like the one they built.
