    So, basically COINTELPRO are spies? :o reminds me of that quote Sam Axe says in Burn Notice that was in the opening intro. I can't recall the exact quote, but Sam (played by Bruce Campell) basically calls spies whiny little *****es. ''You know spies, bunch of *****y little girls'' lol. :yay: hilarious quote.

    Yeah they are spies, and that's actually not a bad description.

    TV gets it backwards, like they are James Bond-ish, getting into women's pants and asserting themselves...

    ...Really they're mostly whiny fat nerds that people find riffling through their garbage.

    So Will Ferrel and Jack Black could play spies in a movie...-_-.


    I recall seeing...Jeffery Donovan, the star of the series, saying how a actual spy in the field gives them info...or something to that notion. Kinda cool...the conspiracy theorist in me is like :o 'ok, who is using a fake name as a exec producer know on the show'. I think the only info this spy gives them is almost all the info on how to make bombs and stuff for the show.

    I believe JFK assassination was a conspiracy, but not by our government. I think it was a small group of individuals...Oswald was right to call himself a patsy,he wasn't the only shooter.

    Anyone have any evidence against a second shooter?

    You've got it backwards. What's the evidence for a second shooter?

    Grassy Knoll...solid location for second shooter. I remember taking a keyboarding class in high school...think it was Keyboarding II or Computer II, but it was really a JFK Conspiracy class. Been a long time...but I recall believing it then. I would honestly have to look over everything again.

    Seen a video of the Miami Training exercise on YouTube. Then saw this on Facebook and read it.

    With the Second Admendment under attack as some people would say, and now this utter crap, what do you think?

    As a Libertarian, and yes, a Conspiracy Theorist...I do not like this crap.

    Total and utter bollocks. That site has a rather obvious agenda that reeks of paranoia.

    Every war and military action we've been involved in during the past decade has involved a lot of urban combat. There's nothing unusual about the military training for urban combat.

    Don't all indie/alt news sites have one? For what it is worth, Examiner gave lots of press on Libertarian Nominee for President Gary Johnson this past election cycle, which is very cool.

    I guess I am being paranoid though.

    Considering a major chunk of the fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan is urban, I don't see what's so unusual/suspicious about this.

    Well, it's military training in a urban environment on American Soil...yea, helicopters firing blanks...that doesn't...un-nerve you a bit? Rather it is announced to the general public or not training is going to go on in a major city?

    What's unnerving about training on American soil? That's usually where American soldiers train. Where else would they train?

    Are you suggesting that they are training to be ready if martial law hits in the States and they have to stop major rioting if the economy collapses?

    Well, military base or surrounding area's, which I guess makes me stupid, cause those cities may be near bases.

    Maybe, maybe not.

    Wether they are or not, you still need to train in an urban environment to train in urban combat techniques. Soldiers training off base for techniques ti be used in environments that a base can't simulate isn't new or weird.

    The US military will definitely need to know how to operate on its own soil, when you defend your cities against the inevitable invasion from the north.

    But I've said too much already ...

    It's all coming together:

    1. Secretly engineer the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell

    2. Secretly engineer policy changes to allow women in combat roles

    3. Deploy Ryan Gosling

    4. With 20-30% of America's fighting force paralyzed in rapt ecstasy, seize control of Washington DC, New York and Los Angeles within 12 hours

    5. Install Jennifer Granholm as puppet president of the new Protectorate of Canadian Sub-states

    I'll say this. When I was in the Army National Guard, we would often train in a local state park. While we were carrying or M16s, due to our potential proximity to civilians, we were not allowed to have any ammunition, live or blank. Hell, we even had to leave the bolts back in the armory!

    So, yeah, this puzzles me.

    Bieber Fever.

    Unfortunately, Bieber Fever counts as biological agent under UN Conventions, so we can only deploy it as an insurgent suppression measure, but not in an actual war. :(
