Local residents in many communities have been startled lately by loud explosions, full combat gear wearing soldiers, and the transportation of military equipment through their communities. We’re told it’s a large scale join military training exercise known as Operation Jade Helm 15, however, a few facts are not adding up.
First of all, Jade Helm was allegedly only taking place in a little more than a dozen states in the south. However, residents of Flint, Michigan, a northern mid-western state, have been scared out of their wits lately by loud explosions and soldiers on the loose.
Media outlet Rightwingnews.com reports:
Residents of Detroit suburb Flint, Michigan were startled and some truly frightened when a host of large explosions filled the afternoon sky on Tuesday. The explosions signaled the beginning of an “urban warfare” exercise by the US Army that some fear is meant to train soldiers on how to attack, kill and/or detain American citizens.
Explosions you’d expect in a war zone echoed through Flint. People’s homes shook and those inside were caught off-guard. It all went down at the shuttered Lowell Junior High on the city’s east side.
The blasts are just an Army exercise.
“There’s older people, it probably gave them a heart attack or something,” Glenn (a local resident) said.
Flint’s spokesman Jason Lorenz said the city has been in talks with the army for months now about using parts of the city.
“It’s an exercise to help their personnel do training with urban environments,” Lorenz said.
That training includes using aircraft and simulated ammunition. It will continue for the next 10 days.
“I think they should have gave us a warning to let us know there was an army thing going on, I really do,” Humphrey said.
The great state of Virginia was not on the original Jade Helm ‘training’ list either, but check out this YouTube video:
