It’s for sure now.Â The Des Moines register is reporting it.
“This was completely blown out of proportion,” Kohorst said. “They were going to come through and meet with the townspeople and just practice going in and out of their homes. They were never, ever going to confiscate guns or anything like that.”
I agree that it was blown way out of proportion.Â The Mayor seems to not quite understand the objections to the exercise.
Talk show host Alex Jones of Austin, Texas, whose syndicated radio program is carried on about 60 stations, said he had received phone calls on and off the air from people in Arcadia and nearby towns who objected to the plans.He said he believes oil companies, in concert with central banks, are creating a worldwide economic crisis to set up a world government.
“This is part of an acclimation for martial law,” Jones said of the National Guard’s plans.
If that’s his paranoia, I don’t understand it either.Â There are certainly good reasons to object to the military using civilian communities in exercises, but that it’s part of an internationalist conspiracy is not among them.
Company A is an infantry unit that served in Afghanistan for 13 months in 2004 and 2005, and it is expected to receive orders to return overseas within the next 24 months, Hapgood said.
OK, so I was wrong about one thing.Â They were training for Afghanistan rather than Iraq, as I speculated over the weekend.
“We have been doing training in our communities for decades, so this is very routine business for us,” Hapgood said. “We were quite surprised when we received e-mails from out of state criticizing the event. We have a responsibility to have our men and women ready to go into combat, and we are not going to change that.”
Well, that’s what they’re saying now, of course.Â After the paranoidosophere blew the lid on their secret plans, what else are they going to say?
A man who described himself as a “Nevada citizen” wrote that it was good the exercise was called off: “It is possible that there would have been some dead Iowa Guardsmen.”
Way to win hearts and minds, good citizen of Nevada!
