There’s a lot of buzz lately about the federal government preparing for massive civil unrest across the country. The most recent alarm was raised when the Army began conducting military training exercises in the streets of St. Louis, Mo.
The Army Reserve’s 354th MP unit is conducting training using what has been described in some stories as “tanks” but are actually heavily armored vehicles similar to large Humvees or armored personnel carriers.
Army officials have been mum on why the exercises are being conducted in the streets of a major city, but St. Louis residents were warned not to be alarmed if the armored vehicles came rolling by.
