In the last article, I presented this map and posed the question, why would the military make a decided effort to keep our Navy in a permanent state of readiness by conducting unprecedented and an unparalleled set of war games continuously going on off of our three coastlines and several of our overseas territories? Guesses ranged from positioning the Navy, Marines and a fair amount of the Air Force off the coast to keep Americans from running if they are put in harms way when martial law is declared. Some believe that this has to do with preparing to begin World War III. These are all interesting guesses, however, they are not correct and the answer will surprise everyone as I know it surprised me.

These ongoing war games have angered much of the Congressional delegations of California, Oregon and Washington. When these representatives got wind of what was coming back in 2009, prior to the Environmental Impact Statement, they organized. In the Appendix section, listed below, I have included one of the letters of congressional protest. Ask yourself, one question, with several members of Congress opposing these massive ongoing war games that have now lasted for years, why wasn’t this been reported on in the mainstream media? By the end of this article, you will be able to answer that question. In response to Congressional requests, NOAA was unwilling to intervene and stop the war games from going forward and these Congressman, now joined by Senators Boxer and Feinstein, approached the Secretary of the Navy, B. J. Penn, and he rejected their request out of hand as well.

The United States has the bulk of its land-based fighting units in Afghanistan which totals about 165,000 troops. Now we see a significant part of of our Air Force and Navy engaged in this massive exercise off shore exercise. Why? And another important question to be asking is whether or not, the ships and their subsequent military maneuvers are facing toward our coastlines or primarily away from them? We have some answers to these questions. First from the Congressional letter to NOAA, it is clear that there primary concern of these Congressmen is the presence of sonar based exercises:

“The sonar exercises at issue would take place off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, Hawaii,
Alaska and in the Gulf of Mexico – affecting literally every coastal state. In many
regions, the Navy plans to increase the number of training exercises or expand the areas
in which they may occur. Of particular concern are biologically sensitive marine habitats…”
