According to a plethora of alternative media sources, Operation Jade Helm is one of the largest peacetime military exercises the United States has ever conducted on U.S. soil. Beginning on July 15 and extending until September 15, 2015, the U.S. military will be conducting a massive drill involving 9 states.
In a recent statement to the Washington Post, Army Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria said, “The nature of warfare is always changing and U.S. Army Special Operations Command’s mission is to make certain the Army’s various Special Operations Forces are trained, equipped and organized to successfully conduct worldwide special operations in support of our nation’s interests.”
Many citizens in the United States are not happy about this military drill and believe that Jade Helm is not an exercise but rather a preplanned mission that will be used to usher in a state of martial law across America. The fear is very real for many people and the conspiracy theories are running wild at this point in time.
The recent closings of a number of Walmart stores in states where Jade Helm will take place have caused even more concern for some people. Some believe that the large stores will be used as processing centers for captured citizens or for food distribution facilities. Some of the websites that are reporting foul play concerning Jade Helm have written about how Americans will be rounded up and relocated to internment camps. Some have stated that the two words Jade and Helm are acronyms for: “JOINT ASSISTANT for DEPLOYMENT and EXECUTION,” and “HOMELAND ERADICATION OF LOCAL MILITANTS.”
As the author of this article, I am not making a judgment one way or another about what Jade Helm really represents to Americans. I thought the story was worth reporting to readers of this website. As always, be aware of everything that is happening in the world and try to do your own research about this and all subjects.
