The Sun Sentinel reported that the U.S. Military was holding urban warfare drills in Broward County. A number of police agencies in Broward county were assisting the Military personnel from the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force in keeping the public away from the drills in an unspecified location.
This is only one of many reports across the United States regarding increased military activity in civilian populations. The Dailymail.com news site reported on Operation Jade Helm, “a controversial domestic military training (operation) in which some of the elite soldiers will operate undetected among civilians”. The 8 week operation begins in July of 2015 and many are worried this is in preparation for a type of martial law.
While the military has been training near the civilian population for decades, it seems as if there is greater activity in recent years, with much of it being publicized on the internet. A quick YouTube search for “Miami Military Drill” shows military Blackhawk helicopters worrying many in Downtown and other parts of Miami.
