#1 Robin Sage has been around decades. It is pretty much the final exam for the Special Warfare School for incoming special forces troops. It puts into practice for them on how to support guerilla units to overthrow a government the US doesn't like.

#2 It pleases me no end that this goon squad will be treated to forecasted unusual snow, ice and freezing rain in NC.

#3 "Goon Squad"?

#4 Sounds like a goon squad to me, especially with the likes of Merrick Garland and Mark Milley calling the shots. You can bet they're all "politically correct" and running around in the woods looking for white supremacists. Yeah, I think the term goon squad fits. If they were honest about wanting to protect America they'd be down on the border fighting a real threat.

#5 Exercises like that can be fun. We were on one in the Phippines in 1965...first the Huks stole our generators...later a voice out of the darkness asks "hey Marines, you want girls"...?

#6 Is Robin Sage that exercise where they put on red uniforms and march through the woods in ranks while the insurgents shoot at them from behind trees?

#7 Most of this article - and all of Abu Shit Head's post - are wrong. The entire exercise, which has been going on for decades, is about organizing and training at guerrilla force (the Gs) to overthrow an oppressive govt (hence the motto - look it up Abu Shit Head).

This mission - aka Unconventional Warfare - has been and remains a core US Army SF mission. Agin - educated yourself Abu Shit Head.

#8 Doing a bit of googling on the topic turns up a lot of frothy 'information' as well as the fact that Robin Sage has been going long before the Brandon administration. I admit I have never heard of it, but then I'm not in the community.

For some reason, this is suddenly important 'news'.

#9 For some reason, this is suddenly important 'news'.

For the same reason the establishment knows it will lose congress in '22. For the same reason the establishment knows it will lose the White House in '24. Gotta start putting those seeds of doubt in the public now for them to come to fruitarian in 2-4 years.

#10 There are families who have plaid the locals for two or three generations, from what I recall.

The reason this is being reported as something new is to spook the ignorant and easily panicked. Plus, it gets eyeballs.
