First Los Angeles, then Chicago, now Miami Florida seems to be the newest location for the Department of Defense’s latest round of Urban Warfare Training.

military in urban environment A number of Miami area residents woke late last night to the sounds of Black Hawk Helicopters, Gun Fire and even Explosions. Many residents were so concerned that 9-11 was flooded with calls from people who feared the city was under some sort of attack. In fact, a number of the calls wanted to know why armed choppers were flying and firing shots over their homes.

So what happened in Miami?

It seems Miami Florida was just another city in a long string of Department of Defense urban training drills. The Department of Defense was conducting an urban assault simulation that included simulated explosions, gunfire and military personnel repelling from helicopters onto the Grand Bay Hotel. Local residents say that the military personal repelled onto the roof and then entered the building between 1 and 3 a.m last night.

Residents were in shock and many were in fear that the hotel was under attack.

One guest at the hotel told the Miami Herald:

“It was quite a shocking experience,” said Jane Muir, who was awakened around 1:45 a.m. by the sound of military choppers that later dropped rappelling soldiers onto the Grand Bay’s rooftop. “It was kind of that bizarre feeling that you were surrounded by wind.”

From her third-floor balcony, Muir then watched the soldiers fire off flares and smoke bombs before searching floor by floor through the darkened hotel, their paths marked by flashlights and the pop-pop-pop of gunshots. “The show of force was so overwhelming,” she said.

A U.S. Army spokesman,Maj. Michael Burns said in a statement:

The maneuvers were part of a “realistic urban training” exercise for about 100 military personnel, and organized by the U.S. Special Operations Command.  The exercise also included three military helicopters, and the use of simulated explosions and gunfire to mimic real-life military scenarios.

    I’m all for military training but this is getting ridiculous. Either the GOV is gearing up for the prospect of martial law or something big is about to go down. Why the hell else would they be training in all these major cities lately?

      The communist are here. The obama administration and his ceasars are trying to scare the hell out of American people that would dare to protect their freedom from these animals. May they all burn in hell for what they have in store. Good thing they don’t use our tax money for all this bull shit. Oh wait, they do. I can’t imagine why this country is broke. What a bunch of bastards. Glad I most likely won’t be here long enough to see it come down. The chem trails our beloved government drops on us is killing me. Eat shit obama.

    I think they are either trying to intimidate the public into submission or trigger a response from people who may not see what is going on as a “TRAINING” exercise but instead as real and may shoot back causing martial law to go into effect. Either way, this has NOTHING to do with training. This is purposefully meant to incite the public. You don’t go around in the wee hours of the morning firing weapons with ZERO notice complete with explosions and expect people to be OKAY with that.

      Rev…..look up the definition of terrorist…then you will understand what they are up to…

    • doug says:

      It’s called “Driving the wedge” it’s all a ploy to incite people so the military can morally, because they can already legally, march into the streets and at the same time set the minds of the sheep at ease whilst saying “I told you so”

  5. church says:

      DEAD ON, ONE THING I DO HOPE IS THE ONES WITH THE HEADS IN THE SAND WILL BE GET THE WAKE UP CALL WITH THIS GOING ON, ANYONE THAT THINKS THIS IS NORMAL SHOULD MOVE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY !!!

  6. Ian MacLeod says:

    I have to agree with Rev – hell they could easily have caused any number of strokes and heart attacks with this kind of behavior. This was meant to terrorize and incite. They were HOPING for a militia response. If they keep at it, eventually they’ll get one, and one dead soldier would be enough to put the whole damned idiot country under martial law.

  7. Revolution is comming says:

    This is a warning the agenda of the elite, freedom at stake, look up the speech from JFK YouTube, this is serious sh.t

  9. tex says:

    Sp. I believe that is rappelled, not repelled! Get it right folks!

  10. mj militia says:

    every one listin!!! go out and get all the guns and ammo you can. the revolution is on. In our constitution it states that martial law is not alowed to be enforced on US soild. It also tell the public that we have the right to over throuo a f up government and place in a new one. dont let thease a holes take our rights i will be one to take out as many of them if they come knocking on my door to surender my arms. our forfathers must of thought it was importaint to make the right to have a militia and guns our second right. up hold your rights men dont back down and dont think theres not going to be blood shed there will every war there is. and this war that the US government is wanting is just like the one we fought england to become a free country. dont let everything that was fought for go down in flames. i sure wont. if anythig find your local militia and join at lease then you have a place that is safe to go. and may i say any and all militias out there its our time to shine get ready this is happening.

    Does anyone remember the movie “The Seige” with Bruce Willis as an Army general? also starred Denzel Washington and Annette Benning? First thing that sprang to mind upon seeing this story.
