Hat tip to SHTF Plan.
This has gone from a lie, the talking point that the military needs to conduct exercises in civilian areas to be prepared for overseas work, to where I'm beginning to wonder if something a bit more sinister is going on.
A no notice exercise in Flint, Michigan and obviously city officials didn't tell residents? No politician is jaded (pun intended) enough to do such a thing without putting out notices to the voters. So I'm guessing they were asked NOT to disclose it.
I don't think this is a prelude to martial law. I think we're seeing a PSYOPS exercise to test public reaction. Gauge social media. Monitor forums and news sites to examine what is being said and how to combat the nay-sayers. I believe the public is being used to develop that Human Terrain concept the Army and DoD is so wedded to.
Of course I could easily be wrong.
