As tensions in several countries continue to rise against America, without any of our enemies backing down, word of secret operation right here in the homeland has just come out. We know our adversaries have nuke bombs and now are aware of a threat to use them in two major U.S. cities that has authorities preparing to beat them to the blast with what’s underway right now.
Although it’s hard to take North Korea’s whiny dictator seriously, it would be foolish not to secure certain states before it’s potentially too late. Kim Jong-un continues to threaten the U.S., saying he’s ready and willing to unleash hell and now some theorists believe they have found “evidence” that suggests America’s focus should be on our homeland and not in North Korea.
An alert was reportedly issued over the weekend regarding “Operation Gotham Shield.” As the name suggests, the preparations are underway in New York, aka “Gotham City,” and also covers all of New Jersey as well. The government exercise is an “Improvised Nuclear Detonation Incident,” the Daily Mail reports. However, that’s not all that was revealed which has residents rightfully on edge.
“The happening to end all happenings will take place in six days,” an anonymous user posted about “Operation Gotham Shield” on an online thread on Thursday, where details of the exercise were revealed. Although this is saidto be just a simulation, some thinks it could become something worse. The post, which was shared to the Health Care Association of New Jersey’s page a couple of weeks ago read:
“EXERCISE – Operation Gotham Shield/Improvised Nuclear Detonation Incident – April 26, 2017 :: This is a reminder that on April 26, 2017 – HCANJ/LANJ will be participating in ‘Operation Gotham Shield’ in conjunction with our NJESF #8 Partners including NJDOH-PHILEP, New Jersey Medical Services Task Force, Office of the Medical Examiner, NJDHS-Disaster Terrorism Branch, Urban Area Strategic Initiative, as well as, State Office of Emergency Management, local, county and Federal Law Enforcement agencies.”
Although the warning was very detailed and believed to be underway, the post has either since been removed or is being questioned as to the existence of it in the first place. The drill is said to be routine and while we know military and government exercises occur all around as all the time, it’s reasonable to believe that “Operation Gotham Shield” is real and perhaps authorities didn’t want inquiring minds meddling in the plans for security reasons – especially since specifics like time and place were provided.
“On Tuesday April 25th 2017, at 0800 the Gotham Shield Exercise will take place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford NJ,” Tyson Mowry, ERHC Helicopter Emergency Response Program (HERP) Coordinator, shared in the announcement, according to the Daily Mail’s report.
“This exercise will simulate a large-scale terrorist attack on the NY/NJ metropolitan area with MetLife Stadium serving as a triage/collection point for victims and emergency response personnel,” the announcement continued. “This will be a large-scale event with numerous federal, state, county and local agencies participating. “It should be very similar in size and scope to the Operation Red Zone drill of 2011.”
According to Snopes, Operation Gotham Shield “is a legitimate and routine multi-agency and organization disaster drill.” While some may see this as an extreme conspiracy theory, it’s important to note that these are common tests and practices to help agencies prepare for events that could very much become a reality, like terrorist attacks have. It’s not a risk to people’s safety, in fact, it’s just the opposite. Should this be taking place, Americans can rest assured that those whose job it is to serve and protect us are prepared for the worst case scenario.
