In yet another example of the attempt to acclimate American citizens to the presence of the US military on their own streets, it has been reported by Channel 5 KSDK in St. Louis, MO that residents of the city as well as the rest of St. Charles County might be encountering military vehicles and personnel this week.
The original announcement was made by St. Louis Police in an effort to warn the public of the strange sights they might encounter over the coming days in anticipation of the fears that many might have in this regard.
The vehicles will be armored personnel carriers manned by Military Police who are engaging in a “training mission” designed to teach them to operate and drive the vehicles on highways and city streets. According to the news reports, the vehicles are unarmed and this operation is not a military drill.
However, the vehicles will be paraded on the highways of St. Louis, as well as the streets of the city as the operation is conducted.
Of course, one must wonder why this training mission couldn’t take place on a military base or at some other military facility as opposed to the populated city of St. Louis. That is, unless the goal was maximum visibility and acclimation of the populace to seeing military vehicles and military personnel on the streets of their own country.
In addition, one must also wonder why MPs would have to travel all the way from Ft. Mead, Maryland in order to practice driving a personnel carrier. If it were necessary to train in an urban setting, couldn’t the MPs have trained in Maryland or Virginia?
Yet there is also the strong possibility that the operation is indeed a training mission with the goal being the preparation for the deployment of US military troops inside the United States for purposes of quelling domestic unrest, “emergency response,” or Martial Law.
Either way, with the increase in the number of drills, “joint operations” with law enforcement, and “training maneuvers,” it is clear that both the public and the troops are being prepped for the eventual use of the US military against the American people.
In 2008, it was reported by the Washington Post that the United States Military, under the U.S. Northern Command, planned to have 20,000 uniformed troops inside the United States for the purposes of operating domestically in response to a “terrorist attack” or some other domestic catastrophe.
Indeed, every year seems to bring an increase in the number of sightings of the US military on the streets of America and an even more brazen attempt to acclimate the American people to view this as normal.
Unfortunately, the latest incident in St. Louis is just one more in a long line of these types of operations that should make us question exactly who is really being trained.
