Online media sites have been abuzz over the last several months with rumors and conspiracy theories about Operation JH-15 (Jade Helm). Why all the commotion?
For starters, those unhappy with the current state of political affairs, both at home and abroad, think it’s a harbinger of inevitable martial law. However, others dismiss Jade Helm as merely a reasonable training exercise, a way for our military to prepare for foreign threats on domestic soil. Honestly, both scenarios if they came to fruition don’t sound appetizing. But what if they’re both wrong?
Rather, instead of civil war or foreign invasion there’s a grim foreshadowing of something far eviler hidden beneath all of this? Could Jade Helm be a training exercise for an impending zombie apocalypse or another similarly unstoppable infectious disease?

Jade Helm is supposed to be an eight-week training exercise designed to prepare men and women for warfare and guerrilla combat methods different from what our military have encountered within the last fifteen years. That’s all fine and dandy but what’s interesting is not the tactics being taught, but the locations selected for the training.
Those in charge, or the administrators of Jade Helm, have reportedly stated they’ve restricted exercises to areas where the landowners have granted permission. However, training has commenced in many regions without the public being aware of what’s going on. Local and state officials are partly to blame because in many areas they’ve given the green light to the Jade Helm administrators without receiving the appropriate permissions themselves, both private and public.

In certain circumstances, local city councils were completely bypassed. As one might expect, those city council members have expressed great concern for the well-being of their citizens. Particularly, they’re worried about the psychological impact on children and the elderly; stating Jade Helm training could inspire fear and panic among residents who wake to armored personnel carriers rolling through their streets.
Aside from the immediate impact on civilians, is the Jade Helm project what the government claims it is or should U.S. citizens be concerned about it and the future it portends? Honestly, when the administrators of Jade Helm say they are “looking to the future,”, it leaves the public wondering what vision of the future they see.
The perplexing piece in all this is the fact that the U.S. has a considerable number of military reservations, on which they conduct armed forces training routinely. It’s confusing to try and understand why they would need to train in actual local cities and on operational farmland in the presence of civilians.
Does the government’s vision of our future include the possibility of a biological attack from a hostile country? The training certainly implies something very real and tangible could be heading our way, and if the location is any clue, Texas is going to play a crucial role.
Texas is on the receiving end of a fair portion of activity concerning Jade Helm. One could assume the military is predicting a scenario where certain, well-armed populations will dig in to strengthen and defend their borders at all costs. However, the training is not taking place near the borders where the conflict would most likely occur, but deep in the heart of the state.
It’s alarming that the military is pushing for public acceptance of Jade Helm’s increased military activity in populated, civilian areas. Coincidently ideal locations for targeting the transmission of biological agents by foreign enemies.
Is Operation JH-15 really about marshal law and the conditioning of the population to accept it? Is it a legit military exercise? Is it a cover for zombie apocalypse training to prepare for an impending infection? Whatever the answer is, we’re unlikely to know in the immediate future. That doesn’t mean, however, we can’t be a bit proactive in our preparations and cognizant of the reality, not everything we see in the media is the truth.
