One thing we have learned since 9-11 is that government agencies practice whatever schemes they have in mind before they occur. Take for instance the events that took place prior to the attack on the Twin Towers in New York on 9-11-2001.
The US Marines already had a biological response team named “America’s 911 Response Force,” a name for this military unit that was coined a year prior to the events that unfolded on 9-11-2001. This same unit of 350 US Marines practiced handling a crisis on the streets of New York City on September 11, 1998. The drill even included handling the unexpected collapse of the World Trade Center towers. Believe it or not, this US Marine force even had a patch on their uniforms showing the World Trade Center twin towers!
So skip forward to the present time with me. I read a disturbing report in the Daily Mail, a UK publication. Dated March 8, 2013, the Daily Mail article describes a US Army Special Forces unit that had cancelled plans to conduct an exercise in Utah where infiltrators would be employed to “tame an indigenous population.”
The Daily Mail article said: “The town of Manti, Utah was targeted and deemed an ideal location because of the desert landscape and the strong religious conviction on its residents. The exercise, named Robin Sage, is a component of Phase Four training for Army Special Forces soldiers, also known as the Green Berets.”
The idea of the planned exercise was to use three teams of 12 soldiers who were trained to mobilize “foreign guerrilla fighters” similar to the way Allied Forces recruited French resistance fighters during WW II. Plain-clothed soldiers would depend upon civilian allies for food, lodging, transportation and supplies. Civilians would be coaxed into turning against any insurgents. These teams of US soldiers would be armed, but carry no live ammunition. But another news report said: “Residents may hear blank gunfire and see occasional flares.” The exercise may be re-scheduled next year.
An Army colonel explained that: “Utah is unique because it was founded with a religious background that can present some ‘cultural norms’ unfamiliar or unique so as to cause the soldiers to adjust their points of view in order to complete the mission; similar to what the forces might encounter in other countries.”
This is not the only such US Army Special Forces exercise of its kind. A similar exercise is now underway in North Carolina using troops from Fort Bragg.
The exercise would target the fictional country of Pineland which encompasses 15 counties in North Carolina. During this exercise, these future Special Forces Soldiers “will infiltrate areas in small groups and train guerilla forces to independently and effectively use tactical force to liberate Pineland,” says a published report.
If what you have already read isn’t troubling enough, an online news report says………….
