The Charlotte Observer

A series of Special Forces military training exercises — including gunfire with blanks — is being staged across 21 North Carolina counties starting Aug. 30, and the Army is telling the public not to be alarmed at the suspicious-looking activity.

Known as Robin Sage training, the unconventional warfare exercises can be likened to live-action role playing in the extreme, with hostile engagement playing out between Special Forces students, volunteer civilians and soldiers out of Fort Bragg. It continues through Sept. 12, said a press release. 

Heavily populated counties like Wake, Cumberland and Union counties are among training sites, according to the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center at Fort Bragg.

The students will match wits with more seasoned soldiers, who will “act as realistic opposing forces and guerrilla freedom fighters,” officials said in a release.

Advance notice has become a critical part of the program, since one soldier was killed and another was wounded in 2002 by a Moore County deputy who mistook Robin Sage exercises for criminal activity.

A similar Fort Bragg military exercise in 1997 created panic in Charlotte, when uptown residents were terrified by the sounds of 100 commandos attacking a warehouse. The “urban warfare” assault incorporated helicopters and “simulated bombs and gunfire,” the Charlotte Observer reported.

The exercises starting next week will involve engagements against a fictitious country known as Pineland, officials said. Staging areas will be largely on private land in 10 of the 21 counties, but the others may feel some impact, officials said.

The 21 counties include Alamance, Anson, Cabarrus, Chatham, Cumberland, Davidson, Davie, Guilford, Harnett, Hoke, Lee, Montgomery, Moore, Randolph, Richmond, Robeson, Rowan, Scotland, Stanly, Union and Wake counties, officials said.

Local law enforcement agencies and government officials have been alerted, a release said.

“Residents may hear blank gunfire and see occasional flares. Controls are in place to ensure there is no risk to persons or property,” officials said. “Residents with concerns should contact local law enforcement officials, who will immediately contact exercise control officials.”

Unconventional warfare tactics call for the students to “wear civilian clothes,” but the public will be able to identify them by “a distinctive brown armband,” officials said. Vehicles will be labeled, too, along with training areas, a release noted.

“Robin Sage is the U.S. military’s premiere unconventional warfare exercise and the final test of over a year’s worth of training for aspiring Special Forces soldiers,” according to the press release.

“Candidates are placed in an environment of political instability characterized by armed conflict, forcing Soldiers to analyze and solve problems to meet the challenges of this ‘real-world’ training.”

In other words, "gun owners and dissenters" as well as those who distrust fed.gov.

It was not too long ago that you Paultard libertarian government-hating idiots tried to convince people that Jade Helm was a government plan to round up political dissidents. Your efforts failed.

Now once again with your “IOW” comes a completely false interpretation of the Robin Sage training.

Your effort to classify the students as "gun owners, dissenters and those who distrust the federal government” as its subject for the result of a conspiratorial undertaking will fail once again – just as your effort failed in Jade Helm.

Your cry of antipathy towards the government continues to fall on deft ears because your slanderous, thinly argued, poorly sourced and intellectually unstable conspiracy theory arguments have no real basis to support your fundamental libertarian aversion.

Following the t0 years of the effortless results to your flawed reasoning – Just give it up already …

Don't forget the wild rumor-mongering about that stupid little empty prison in Hardin, Montana (a result of economic development run amok) that the Lefties and clickbaiters kept insisting was some kind of FEMA deathcamp.

Damn, we haven't had anything that funny in a long time. I loved that story back at LP. It lasted a while too since I recall laughing about it for weeks as the truth about that empty prison came out and some foreign impersonator showed up to try to take over the town and scam the desperate residents.

They could make a great comedic movie about that episode. It's rare that real life turns out to be that funny.
