No Longer Just a “Cool Tourist Story” but Real Time Prepping for Civil War

On May 10th, 2012, in a post I titled “Cool Tourist Story,” or Real Time Prepping for Civil War?, I linked to two stories, via Drudge, regarding recent military “training exercises” in the Miami area complete with military helicopters and explosions.

Evidently, this is going on once again, as a post at Blur-Brain titled Military Helicopters Buzz Downtown Miami Firing Machine Guns points out (post includes a news video with video footage shot by a private citizen which includes sounds of machine gun fire (I do not know if this is simulated firing but I would guess that it is)).

Another interesting thing to consider in regards to this, at least I find it interesting, is neither of the stories I originally linked in my May 10, 2012 post can be found at their original sources.  The first May 2012 story I linked, which was hosted at, was titled Media Characterizes Military Invasion of South Florida as “Cool Tourist Story.  This story now returns a 503 error.  And utilization of’s search feature returns a “403 Forbidden” error for a story of that title.

The second story I linked was hosted by The Miami Herald, and was titled Military training in the middle of Miami jolts residents out of bed.  This news story now returns a 404 Error, and utilization of The Miami Herald’s search feature returns zero news stories of that title.

What’s going on, here?  Are you prepared?

UPDATE (01.28.2013)  Via Wizard, in comments, this is happening in Houston also.
