GALVESTON — The U.S. Army’s plan to use the old Galveston County Jail for urban warfare training was canceled late Wednesday afternoon.

Calls and emails to the Army were not returned, but the county’s Dudley Anderson, who coordinated the use of the facility with the Army, said the military was a bit “sensitive” to the publicity the training generated
After a blatant show of force they are "sensitive about publicity" ?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it possible that the military has been doing these sorts of training a for a very long time, but they went unreported because there wasn't as much media then as there is now? Not trying to troll the thread, just curious.

To an extent, but the sounds of live gun rounds going off, with no warning to the public? I think that is a recent twist.

Past exercises were geared more towards medical intervention, than assault tactics.

And why the hell are they doing all this in populated areas without warning? Explain it to me! Or is it just a "coincidence" like most people will say about all this crap....

If you can not trust your wonderful government, who can you trust?

What could happen when someone is hunting, with full camo and sees someone with a mask and gun on his property? Shots ring off towards the hunter. Not a good outcome. And who would be the bad guy in a given situation?

Maybe some of our military leaders are using this to warn us of coming attractions.

Or it could be they weren't reported because there wasn't as much PARANOIA as now!
