    I saw this and have to say it sounded....interesting...


    [​IMG] NORTHCOM Plans 5 Day Martial Law Exercise
    <HR style="COLOR: #a93c3c" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->Hide your guns, and get ready for who knows what else....here they come.....Oct 15-20th throughout the United States. Not sure who remembers or cares to know but they also had an exercise on 9/11 for the same attack that happened.

    They also had an exercise in the UK on 7/7/05 for the exact same thing as what happened, the tunnel bombings as well as the bus.

    It says the theater of operation will be Arizona and Oregon, and Guam. Some are saying specifically Phoenix and portland but I dont havent seen anything specific. FYI

    VS-08 will be conducted concurrent with Top Officials 4 (TOPOFF 4), the nation’s premier exercise of terrorism preparedness sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security, and several other linked exercises as part of the National Level Exercise 1-08. These linked exercises will take place October 15-20 and are being conducted throughout the United States and in conjunction with several partner nations including Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, as well as the Territory of Guam.

    VS-08 and National Level Exercise 1-08 will provide local, state, tribal, interagency, Department of Defense, and non-governmental organizations and agencies involved in homeland security and homeland defense the opportunity to participate in a full range of exercise scenarios that will better prepare participants to prevent and respond to national crises. The participating organizations will conduct a multi-layered, civilian-led response to a national crisis.

    USNORTHCOM’s primary exercise venues for VS-08 include locations in Oregon, Arizona and a cooperative venue with USPACOM in the Territory of Guam. NORAD’s aerospace detection and defense events will take place across all the exercise venues, to exercise the ability to mobilize resources for aerospace defense, aerospace control, maritime warning, and coordination of air operations in a disaster area.


    NOTE FOR MEDIA ORGANIZATIONS: For more information on the exercise or for potential media coverage during the exercise, please contact Mr. Michael Kucharek or Lt. Cmdr. Gary Ross at the NORAD and USNORTHCOM Public Affairs Office, 719-554-6889.

    I don't believe that this particular training op is designed to be utilized as a ghost platform such as what occured on 9-11 in NY and 7-7 London. This will be more like what has already taken place in numerous cities over the past ten years or so, which are readiness tactical emergency response maneuvers with real applicability. However, it should be noted that the numerous ops similar to this planned event in October have been documented by Alex Jones, to include some very shady dealings with cross training foreign troops on US soil for urban combat and militarization of the police forces across America. I wouldn't be surprised if there were some black helicopters involved and a few scenarios which involve local police. The info also mentions civilian involvement, and that means SCARE TACTICS, using a show of force to continue the police state indoctrination. We might see mock gun confiscations, with the help of several families of LEO and military, and using "Stassi" drills by rounding up some local kids to do some spying just for "fun".

    I would follow this and see where it leads, but it certainly won't become an active, live terrorist event. It is too far outside the spectrum, and without purpose besides.

    Interesting article. Thanks, MM!

    I'd put on my [tf], but I read that it amplifies the signal.

    Not overly concerned about it my self but did find it interesting, especialy the similarity in the nameing of the ops to the ones on 9-11 and 7-7. Basicly just figured it was somewhat interesting and while not anything I would consider being by any means a reason to BO from the AOs for the ops, might be just enouph to be a bit extra atentive to being sure kits were in vehicles, know where family members are on those days and keep an extra eye on the news and such, IOW, basicly just giveing a bit of extra attention to being sure to do what I try to as a daily practice, be aware and ready for whatever may come.
