Marines at the Naval Weapons Station in Yorktown, Virginia have been caught on camera conducting a riot control drill, and many say this is evidence that the government is preparing for martial law.
The video’s description states that the marines “Conducted an operational readiness exercise, which evaluates the team’s ability to perform riot control. The ORE determines of the marines are ready to take their final step in pre-deployment training. After completing and meeting the requirements of the ORE evaluation the Marines will go to Quantico, Virginia for their final phase of pre-deployment training.”
The footage shows marines take on angry protesters, meant to represent American civilians, with pepper spray, batons, and rifles.
The video could not have been released at a worse time for the military, as Americans everywhere are becoming increasingly paranoid about the government enacting martial law. This summer, the U.S. military is set to carry out Operation Jade Helm, a training exercise in which American soldiers will see if they can carry out operations in the American public without being noticed. Many see this as a dry run for martial law.
Paranoia has also increased due to the mysterious closings of five Walmarts across the country.
2,200 Walmart employees at five stores in different cities were laid off last Tuesday and given just a few hours notice. Walmart claimed that the stores had to be closed due to plumbing issues, but many have questioned this explanation since all the stores were located in different parts of the country.
Conspiracy theorists have linked the Walmart closings to operation Jade Helm, and some say that these stores will be used as a home base for the government to begin enacting martial law.
