Found this at Bare Naked Islam. Seems the reports are coming in from all over. I posted a few of these incidents here a few days ago but then word got out that it is happening in many more places. I've been wondering what possible reasons the Army has for all of these urban warfare exercises and I think there are a few that need to be given serious consideration.
1. Getting the American public used to seeing armed troops in our neighborhoods. When and if the time comes for rounding up those domestic terrorists who are defending their 2nd Amendment rights, our neighbors won't be too alarmed.
2. Playing a game of Chicken. You know the way two cars drove toward each other at high speed to see which driver veers away first? Well, maybe the intent here is to see which American will think they're coming for them and will begin shooting back with real bullets and thus provoking a live-fire exchange.
3. Ratting sabers. Typical tactic of a despot to perform a show of force to intimidate the civilian population. Helicopters buzzing overhead fire machine guns with blanks is rather scary.
4. Actual training for the military to give them some experience in a some future domestic warfare against the American people. What kinds of rioting could be anticipated following the collapse of our economy: food riots or gun confiscation for example.
BlackHawks Down…all over America?
What’s going on?
The military has been setting up in quite a few cities lately and performing military training exercises in public streets and neighborhoods. Armed soldiers were seen walking down residential streets along with armored vehicles. An unusual amount of military training activity within the U.S. has been occurring over the past three months. Florida, Colorado, Maine, Missouri, Indiana, and Minnesota are some of the states experiencing these “military exercises.”

Obama to Top Brass: Will you fire on American Citizens?:
“World-renowned educator and human rights activist Jim Garrow says that the source, man regarded as “one of America’s foremost military heroes,” told him that President Obama is using a new litmus test for “determining who will stay and who must go” among top-ranked military leaders. That test is whether they will fire on US citizens or not. Garrow says that his source made the disclosure in order to “sound the alarm” over the administration’s plans…
