FORT BRAGG – Beginning March 27 U.S. Military will join forces with local militias and civilian personnel for a ‘full scale invasion’ of 21 North Carolina counties, with the goal of subduing the Pineland Resistance Movement that has take control of a zone encompassing said counties.
No, you’ve not missed the headlines about a growing armed resistance among the long leaf pines of the Old North State; it’s just a special forces training exercise.
It’s called the ‘Robin Sage Exercise’ and it’s the final test for U.S. special forces students before matriculation.
From March 27 to April 11, special forces students will team up with local militias and civilian personnel for combat-style training on private land through out nearly two dozen counties in which they will invade and quell a hypothetical armed resistance complete with gunfire blanks, flares, and even exploding missiles.
The training is about as real as it gets. So real, in fact, that 19 years ago a Moore County law enforcement officer mistook the action associated with a ‘Robin Sage’ exercise for an actual active shooter threat, shooting and killing a soldier.
Such is the importance of public notice in advance of these incredibly realistic and frightening exercises.
The 2021 Robin Sage exercise is built around the fictional narrative of an intrastate break away country that’s been forcibly carved out of North Carolina by the Pineland Resistance Movement. After the last 12 months, in which America witnessed a very real (or just an idea?) movement of Antifa/Radical Leftists groups to carve out autonomous zones in cities around the country, it doesn’t sound quite so outlandish as it previously would have.
For whatever reason, the military does not model this fictional resistance after those real life examples. It could be a vestige of the cultural stereotype of armed resistance being exclusive to Right Wing militias. Or, perhaps it is because they know all too well that the Soy Boys wouldn’t be much of a resistance at all if faced with the actual U.S. military. Our U.S. Special Forces need to simulate an actual challenge.
(No doubt a Biden official inquired about labeling the imaginary insurrectionists the ‘Trump Army.’ After all, they are used to using pure imagination to manufacture such threats.)
The exercise will involve hundreds of personnel, doing things that will seem extraordinarily volatile and suspicious, so if you’re in the following counties, beware of this impending training:
Alamance, Anson, Cabarrus, Chatham, Cumberland, Davidson, Davie, Guilford, Harnett, Hoke, Lee, Montgomery, Moore, Randolph, Richmond, Robeson, Rowan, Scotland, Stanly, Union and Wake
