“Jade Helm is a challenging eight-week joint military and Interagency (IA) Unconventional Warfare (UW) exercise conducted throughout Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado,” according to an unclassified military document announcing the training drill, which is set to take place from July to September this summer.
The training exercise will involve troops “wearing civilian clothes and driving civilian vehicles” to blend in with “civilian populations.” The operation lists Utah and Texas as “hostile territory,” likely because these are two of the most conservative states in the country.
This news comes just after National Guardsman in Tennessee were caught on camera training to fight civilians. This is just the latest in a long list of videos of soldiers training among civilians for what many say is a dry run for martial law.
Americans have been extremely paranoid about martial law being enacted since five Walmarts across the country were mysteriously closed two weeks ago. While the superstore claimed that the stores were closed due to “plumbing issues,” many believe they were shut down so that they could be used for training exercises like Operation Jade Helm.
Just days after the stores were closed, tanks and helicopters were spotted heading towards the Walmart.
