Week Long Military Urban Warfare Drills Hijack Denver Streets in Preparation for Terror
Asking people about the un-marked, black military helicopters in the streets of Downtown Denver we were no longer met with blank stares and scoffs, but with finger pointing and wild eyed expressions of disbelief earlier today.
Special operation forces have been conducting landings, and maneuvers inside the downtown city limits of the mile high city for the past 2 days. According to the (AP) these exercises will be ongoing until Friday.
MacDill Air Force Base, Fla.-based U.S. Special Operations Command spokesman Lt. Steve Ruh says the flights are a culmination of a two-week training exercise that is part of the "war on terror." One official told KDVR-TV the flights are not security preparations for the Democratic National Convention in August.
These exercises have been conducted at multiple locations throughout the city. Two major staging grounds are a large abandoned rubber factory on the south side of Denver, and also the former Children�s hospital at Downey and 21st street. These facilities have been placed under military control with the blessing of the city according to Lt. Ruh spokesperson for the unnamed branch of the military conducting these ops city wide.
The image of helicopters loading and unloading Special Forces units in Black Hawk helicopters will ultimately prove costly for the city. One night is bad enough in a free Constitutional Republic, but for an additional 2 -3 days the city will undoubtedly be met with harsh criticism from the public.
Admittedly watching the helicopters take off and fly did stir images of American strength and pride, but these quickly vanished when a recent report from journalist Paul Joseph Watson comes to mind revealing soldiers are being asked if they would "kill Americans". One can't help but wonder if those soldiers flying over head are the ones that said "Yes".
That answer quickly came when in an extremely low pass from a MH-6 "Little Bird" with troops hanging off the sides dropped a red glow stick adorned with a military issue U.S. Army patch onto our position atop a parking garage our camera's had positioned themselves to catch the action. Now whether or not this glow stick meant we just got fragged by a drill grenade, or if it was just a friendly gesture by our boys in the military is unknown, but coming with in feet of our position you can rest assured they are deadly accurate from that height.The video below is a compilation piece from the two above mentioned facilities these operations were being conducted at, interviews, and car chases to the un-disclosed drill location all gathered by the 4 film teams of WeAreChangeColorado.org.
