    this is the third or fourth city I've read about them doing this...

    SNIP:
    Gun control advocates say deadly assault weapons have no business being on the streets of America.

    But, apparently, those same people who would restrict you of your ability to defend yourself have no objections to fully loaded military gunships flying over American population centers.




    That’s exactly what happened in Miami, Florida recently when the U.S. military, in conjunction with local law enforcement agencies, staged an “urban training exercise,” justifying the action as as preparation of our troops for deployment overseas.

    If we’re supposedly pulling our military out of Afghanistan and Iraq, which urban environment is it that the military and local police are training for?

    Military “exercises” in populated urban environments are now so routine, so commonplace, they are no longer reported by the national media and are left as “human interest” stories for local news stations.



    The U.S. military has remote training installations all over the world. Why, then, would it be necessary for them to be engaging in exercises over a major U.S. city?

    Uh...ever been to Ft. Irwin or Ft. Polk? Training for urban combat is a little difficult in those places, wouldn't you say?

    I guess had you been alive back in the 1940's, you'd have seen some sort of conspiracy behind the Louisiana Maneuver's too, huh?

    From the Article:
    when the U.S. military, in conjunction with local law enforcement agencies,
    then
    The training is designed to ensure that military personnel are able to operate in urban areas and to focus on preparations for overseas deployment.

    Now If the training is designed to ensure that military personnel are able to operate in urban areas, why are the local authorities involved? Sure they should know what is going on. but it appears they are also involved in the training. That my friend brings up more questions.

    Uh...maybe because it's THEIR city? Or, would you prefer the federal government just come in, do what they like and tell the state and local government's to screw off?

    Like I said, in my previous post, It is one thing to let the authorities know what is going on, but why should the Miami Police Swat Team be riding along on the helicopters. What are they training for.

    Miami is not a bad place to have these exercises since most would just assume it was another TV or movie being filmed down here.

    Do you know nothing of history? When riots or civil disturbances happen (Yes, they do), the armed forces and local law enforcement have to work together. It's prudent for them to train together too, don't you think?

    Perhaps if you talked to someone wbo has actually SEEN the exercises.

    The helicopters are red. That is the Coast Guard.....which is a branch of the US military.

    Military personnel need to be trained in open water rescue. Especially in Miami the Coast Guard and local law enforcement need to learn and practice drug interdiction. Drug interdiction also takes place off the coasts of foreign countries.

    So gunships are a good thing. Miami needs training exercises. Besides, they look awesome.

    BULLSHIT!

    The U.S. military and local and state law enforcement are training for CIVIL UNREST. Period.

    It's coming, and it's coming soon. They know it, and those of us who don't have CRANIAL/RECTAL INVERSION know it, too.
