    Perhaps a little more information before we go click a blind link?

    sorry belasar, I haven't been on in awhile. After reading more info, it should be in The Stump as well. Feel free to move or delete. It is just an article and I don't usually read my news on the internet for obvious reasons, so not sure if there is any truth to it. Talks about FEMA preparing for "A Major Event" Oct 1st.

    Went ahead and moved it to the stump. Have not checked the link yet (at work and never click on links on somebody else's computer) but will check it out when I get home.

    I know many people get the HeeBee Geebee's about FEMA, so it might be safer here.

    Following the bread crumb trail of FEMA orders, retired State Senator Sheldon R. Songstad of South Dakota State issued an “Emergency Fema Region 3 Alert!!!,” on August 13th.
    Region three is comprised of; Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia.
    Songstad’s research turned up some very interesting facts. Each item on its own could go unnoticed, but the collective facts may be worthy of your attention and scrutiny. The U.S. government appears to be preparing for a major event. It appears that this event is being staged for approximately Oct. 1st. Let’s look at the numbers and dates.
    UN Peacekeepers began training the 4th week of July and will complete their nine week training by October 1st. They are learning English, as well as US weapon systems and Urban Warfare training.
    How many troops are training? 386,000 troops!
    The Center of Disease Control ordered $11 million worth of antibiotics. Where are they going? FEMA Region lll. When are they due? October 1st. This coupled with the fact that the World Health Organization held an emergency meeting, its second such meeting in its history, to discuss MERS Coronavirus. This is quite unsettling. The WHO determined that a vaccine MUST be in place by October 1st.
    Periodic testing of GPS and Communications satellites is normal, but coordinating their testing for the first time, with a testing date of September 29th, is noteworthy.
    All DHS agents MUST now qualify with sidearm, shotgun and AR 15’s by September 28th. Less lethal qualifications are not mentioned. Has one eye brow raised? The DHS will receive 2800 Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles (MRAP’s) that must be delivered by October 1st.
    All National Guard units will complete their annual two week training in riot control and disaster assistance. All units MUST have their training complete by September 30th. However, the Eastern-based Coast Guard units will not be performing their usual training in the Gulf, this year they will be trained in Virginia and Delaware for 10 days beginning September 26th.
    Coincidently, the Emergency Broadcast System will begin daily testing beginning on September 25th thru October 2nd. All of this kind of reminds me of the bomb sniffing dogs being trained at the Boston Marathon for the first time ever.
    FEMA purchase orders deserve a little attention too. They ordered over $14.2 million for MREs and heater meals and 22 million pouches of emergency water, to be delivered to Region III by October 1st. An additional order of $13.6 million worth of MRE’s and heater meals will be delivered to Austin by October 1st.
    Our U.S. military will not be permitted leave from September 28th thru November 5th. NORCOMM’s yearly training for civil unrest is suspended until September 27th. To be performed in northeast coastal areas. Date for release of QE3 report has been moved to October 16th.
    Over 300 school systems will be issued a 3 day emergency kit for each student in September.
    The retired Senator’s national preparedness research was sparked by a comment Donald Trump made during a recent appearance on Fox News’ “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.” Songstad included a video version of his findings with his notice. His video is going viral.
    How concerned should we be? Or perhaps the question is….How prepared should we be? Perhaps the answer is……Better prepared than the government.

    What? You've got 368 000 foreign troops in your country and no one noticed....I notice when there are 100 extra Dutch Nato staff in uk....Don't think so...Even if they were not all foreign, but the article leaves the implication they are...a muck raking trick...Then this is the biggest exercise known to man...even if an admin exercise...

    Emergency management sector of a government continues to prepare for possible emergencies.
    Good.

    MRAP figure sounds iffy. Which throws the other quoted stats into doubt.
    US DHS apparently has a handful for dodgy jobs (I think understandably), and I suspect the figure in that article is most likely a reference to a Marine Corps order

    Anyone might think somebody's deliberately adding Two & Two to get 2,717... :cutie:

    2,717 vehicles x 368k troops + assorted gathered statistics.
    = 1 confused and rather assumptive conclusion.
    Apparently...

    I want to believe the Truth is Out There, but I trust No One unless Cancerman says it is okey-doaky.

    Did they say the UN troops were training in the US? Looks to me like they just implied that. Of course there story wouldn't be nearly as "good" if that fact were evident.
    By the way this site http://usmilitary.about.com/od/joiningthemilitary/l/blbasicattrit.htm mentions that something over 200,000 individuals are inducted into the us military every year that would mean 1.5-2 times as many foreign troops are being trained.

    I didn't think that was the implication either.
    Looks like they've taken a mixed bag of medium related statistics, standard orders, training routines and obligations, thrown in a WHO report (bearing little relation to most WHO stuff on MERS) and built them into the most alarming scenario they could think of.

    Which must be sort of fun...

    You have just described most conspiracy theorist to a T although they often feel free to make things up as well of course that could well be happening here as well.

    Just when I was getting bored by retirement, I now can be the Forums's reporter of the upcoming "exercise"! Thrilling. So far I haven't seen any of the evidence but I'll go looking. 368 K tourists with weapons in the DC-MD-VA area should't be too hard to recognize. I'll launch my fleet of recon drones to be sure though. Stay tuned, this correspondant is diging in for the duration. That is all.

    I've a mate who works in disaster/emergency planning.
    Obviously he doesn't tell me or anyone else much, nor would I want to know, but he does seem to have a wide interest in all sorts of bizarre possibilities, often laughs hollowly at the tabloids & conspiracists, and has a tendency to become hard to contact when something 'odd' kicks off in the news.

    Personally, I'm glad he does.
    Someone has to.

    This 'citizen journalism' is a funny thing innit - half quite calm and legitimate enquiries, whistle-blowing etc., and the rest 'reporting' on any old conspiracist/single issue saw they can hang their hat on.
    I know which half I think the Lizard people would rely on to keep thing's nice & confusing...
