Navy SEALs to target Fort Lauderdale [did, 3/25/14]
Sun Sentinal ^ | February 14, 2014 | Larry Barszewski

SEAL Team Six, the U.S. military group credited with taking down Osama bin Laden in 2011, could have Fort Lauderdale next in its sights.

A proposed operation in the city — involving hovering combat helicopters, exploding flash-bang devices and the sounds of gunfire — is in the works.

(snip)

What type of exercises can be expected? The agreement mentions the possibility of using low-flying helicopters and simulated ammunition to train personnel on a "rooftop fast-rope insertion" into a building.

And so why did the US build the 300 acre 'fake city' in Virginia at a cost of $96 million?. I forget...

Anyone else seeing military activity over cities?

Hmm, do you think the military should NOT train for urban warfare, in the 21st century?

Sure. That’s what military bases are for.

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 above from your link... that said I don't believe SEALS can be pulled into the scam liberals are setting up to hurt American citizens. Maybe the army and Air Force... they've been PC for a while - but not the marines, SEALS, or Navy....

Another day, another military operation on American soil, in preparation for operations against American citizens to take our freedoms, rights, and probably, our lives.

Dude they have urban mock ups on bases they can train on. They are doing this in our streets to desensitize the public so when martial law is declared and they come to the ciities and lock them down.

What do you think that door to door fiasco was in Boston? It was defacto martial law to see who would sqwack about it. Nobody did.

“Dude they have urban mock ups on bases they can train on.”

Sure, but a mock up is only going to prepare you so much for the real thing. I don’t have a problem with them occasionally training in more realistic environments, as long as they aren’t violating posse comitatus.

“They are doing this in our streets to desensitize the public so when martial law is declared and they come to the ciities and lock them down.

Yeah, yeah. Send me a FReepmail when Obama finally declares martial law, as all the paranoid FReepers are so certain that he is planning to do. I’ll be holding my breath.

That is what they are doing. The military has zero business training in populated areas such as big cities. Wake up and smell the cordite. :-)

An excellent opportunity to liberate young, attractive coeds taken hostage by their string bikinis and t-backs.

Let’s be sure to bring cameras, troops - America wants to see evidence of a successful op.

I thought the post was pretty clear: I thought that's why they built the Taj Mahal of MOUT Training, not to demonstrate that it's normal for US Military forces to operate on US soil and that Posse Comitatus means nothing.

HEY! Think of all the BILLION$$ we can save by closing all the MILITARY bases, gunnery ranges and training facilities: We can just have the military practice side-by-side with their civilian 'counterparts' and display military force over citizens on a weekly basis...

It’s the continuing conditioning of military forces of every branch that it’s normal to operate on US soil that concerns me.

Much out there about the questions being asked of soldiers, NCOs & Officers about that.

I don’t care what ‘branch’ built the facility: All branches will use it (at that price).

BtD: "I protest this outrageous imposition on my domestic tranquility!"

Chief: "We'll let you throw a grenade."

BtD: "Uh...well..."

Chief: "And you can have a ride in the hovercraft. And take a run through the full-auto shoot house."

BtD: "Hmm...well, I guess it isn't that loud..."

Well, I don’t think building one facility means they will never have need to train elsewhere for that kind of thing. Posse Comitatus doesn’t have anything to say on the matter of military training, only law enforcement, so it’s irrelevant.

“That is what they are doing.”

No, it’s not. What laws are they trying to enforce during their training exercises?

I’m old enough to have lived through the “FEMA camp” predictions of the Clinton years, and in a couple of years, we’ll have lived through these Obama-era ones, I’m pretty sure.

As a Marine who trained on American soil, you don’t have a clue what you’re talking about.

You read too many comicbooks. Go peddle your survivalist TVP on eBay.

Then it’s your responsibility to educate your boy.

Why would I care?

Did you know that President Clinton opened hundreds of FEMA camps in America staffed with ChiComms who would kill us all back in the 1990s? Did you know that Montana rails were shipping thousands of Russian vehicles and tanks to take over America?

Here’s a survivalist spring tip for you: Dandelion tea and April honey calms the overly agitated mind.

Ok, then.

Your Branch (US Marine Corps) was addressed in the Combat Arms Survey, courtesy of Navy Lt Cmdr. Ernest G Cunningham in 1994 for his Thesis.

Why don't you look up what he asked US Marines and what their answers were to those questions. It wasn't that which I was referring to, but it suffices for the sake of this exchange.

Then look up a document called DOMESTIC OPERATIONAL LAW HANDBOOK FOR JUDGE ADVOCATES (applies in part to US Military force and its application to controlling civil disturbance).

And look up a document called DOMESTIC SUPPORT OPERATIONS FIELD MANUAL, HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENT OF THE ARMY, US MARINE CORPS FM 100-19.

Or not. I tried to throw you a bone. Can't say I didn't.

But no links...

It's funny, your crude reference to 'survivalist' in a slur reference at me: Situational awareness, described differently but defined the same, is #1 in Survival doctrine...(for Marines, too)

By the way...since you brought up Slick Willy, he said in 1993:

“We can’t be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans to legitimately own handguns and rifles that we can not think about reality.”

Connecticut citizens aren't laughing.
