U.S. Army builds $96m fake city in VA to train for what?

Paul Joseph Watson reports for InfoWars, Feb. 14, 2014, “U.S. Army Builds ‘Fake City’ in Virginia to Practice Military Occupation”:

The U.S. Army has built a 300 acre ‘fake city’ complete with a sports stadium, bank, school, and an underground subway in order to train for unspecified future combat scenarios.

The recently opened site is located in Virginia and was built at a cost of $96 million dollars, taking just two years to complete. While the city was ostensibly built to prepare U.S. troops for the occupation of cities abroad, some will undoubtedly fear that the real intention could be closer to home. Although the site includes a mosque, the town looks American in every other way, with signs in English.

The fact that, as the Telegraph reports, “The subway carriages even carry the same logo as the carriages in Washington DC,” could suggest that the site was built to double both as a foreign city and a mock domestic town.

According to Colonel John P. Petkosek, “This is the place where we can be creative, where we can come up with solutions for problems that we don’t even know we have yet….This is where we’ll look at solutions for the future–material solutions and non-material solutions…anything from how you’re going to operate in a subterranean environment to how you dismount a Humvee to avoid an IED strike.”

The increasing demonization of domestic political groups as extremists has prompted numerous scenarios where commentators have suggested that U.S. Army and National Guard personnel could be needed to quell civil unrest. In 2012, an academic study about the future use of the military as a peacekeeping force within the United States written by a retired Army Colonel depicted a shocking scenario in which the U.S. Army is used to restore order to a town that has been seized by Tea Party “insurrectionists”.

The study dovetailed with a leaked U.S. Army manual which revealed plans for the military to carry out “Civil Disturbance Operations” during which troops would be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.

The manual also describes how prisoners will be processed through temporary internment camps under the guidance of U.S. Army FM 3-19.40 Internment/Resettlement Operations, which outlines how internees would be “re-educated” into developing an “appreciation of U.S. policies” while detained in prison camps inside the United States.

Fort Hood soldiers are also being taught by their superiors that Christians, Tea Party supporters and anti-abortion activists represent a radical terror threat, mirroring rhetoric backed by the Department of Homeland Security which frames “liberty lovers” as domestic extremists.

Last year, former Navy SEAL Ben Smith warned that the Obama administration is asking top brass in the military if they would be comfortable with disarming U.S. citizens, a litmus test that includes gauging whether they would be prepared to order NCOs to fire on Americans.

During a recent Ohio National Guard exercise, second amendment proponents were portrayed as domestic terrorists as part of a mock disaster drill.

    Obama says it’s a mosque. It’s a church, and not, a mosque. Also, either a veteran center or bingo hall. Train has wide American gauge tracks. Combat Town is good training, but this Regime in Washington and the RINO-Crats, cannot be trusted. Same old story of government trying to scare citizens, but remember this, government counts each bullet one-by-one, while the People count their bullets, by the ton.

    Under Obama, our military’s budget has been cut. But this administration managed to spend $96 million on building a fake city in Virginia in record time of a mere two years, putting many public construction projects to shame. As an example, it took 24 years to build a new span of the S.F. Bay Bridge!

    So what’s the fake city for? – inquiring minds want to know.


  3. Thank you StMA for this fascinating post. I have the same question: What is this fake city for? As a devout Catholic, a pro-life advocate and Constitution- loving American, I would like to know, especially since I have been defined as a domestic terrorist because I am true to my faith which condemns the killing of little babies.


  4. In 1974 the US enter into a treaty with the un called “United Nations Resolution 104” which simply put that should The United States come under “Marital Law”, all of our national monument, and national park fall under the control of UN forces, these are the forces that will spear head that over seeing, on America’s soil. Which begs the question to be asked, how far away from that are we now?


  5. This will possibly be for all the fake politicians to live in as they will be target’s anywhere else!


  6. On The “warning shot’s will not be fired”! This cut’s both way’s,dont forget!


  7. Damn – I was really hoping for an intelligent reply…
