The military will be training over Miami Florida for the next few nights, starting 3/14/13.
A press releases issued by Miami Dade County advises that the exercise includes the use of military helicopters and simulated gunfire. The training is meant to prepare participants for combat missions in urban areas and to prepare forces for upcoming overseas missions, according to the release.
I find this bizarre. Our cities should not be used for military training with simulated gunfire. They will be using blackhawk and chinook helicopters.
Why train over a big city? They are making the excuse of training them for over seas deployment. They trained already over Miami once in January without warning people ahead of time. They are doing it again?
Considering the military is not suppose to be on our streets in the first place, they should not be training over our streets either. There are many places where they could train for 'overseas' deployment.
It seems to me they are doing a lot of training in our cities now and that training is actually for U.S. deployment at some point, considering they have purchased 2 billion rounds of ammo, besides DHS putting armored vehicles on our streets.
Why don't they be honest and say the training is for their combat against the U.S. people in our cities, using NDAA as the ability to put the military in the U.S.
I wonder if they will be using drones in the training too?
More from article:
Bob Cook, who lives near Baseline Road and Fort King Street, said he was frightened when he saw the aircraft come over his home Saturday.
"I turned and ran. That's not right what they are doing," he said.
Cook said the aircraft were no more than 150 feet above the ground and whipped the tree tops with their propeller wash.
Burns did not say how low the aircraft were flying, but did say they were within Federal Aviation Administration compliance.
"Sometimes when people are not used to seeing or hearing those type of aircraft they seem a lot closer than they are," he said.
Some locals also reported seeing the aircraft flying without lights.
Burns said some of them do fly without lights because, "We are trying to simulate a combat experience as closely as possible."
Seems a little dangerous for the military to be flying so low over our streets and people's houses.
Our streets are not for military training to kill others! We should not have to hear machine gun fire from a military helicopter flying low over our city streets!
