Re: Patriot Missile Battery Suddenly Appears At Small Regional Airport In Texas
Could it be stationed there to take out any cruise missiles launched from the Gulf of Mexico...

This is just one Patriot Missile Battery. Would be interesting if it were occurring at other small regional airports that ring the Gulf of Mexico...

Just imagine Tankers or Merchant ships launching cruise missiles (Club-K) off their decks. It would be a very short response time before they hit their intended targets. If the military positions enough of these missile batteries, in key areas, it could provide a small level of protection and limit the damage done by a cruise missile attack...

That was my thought, threats from the gulf. How about an EMP lauched form a boat in the golf?

Re: Patriot Missile Battery Suddenly Appears At Small Regional Airport In Texas
This one is kind of spooky to me considering I just got done re-reading Alas Babylon. Right before the nuclear war, Strategic Air Command dispersed many of their aircraft to small regional airports away from bases and cities...like College Station. Probably not why this is happening, but still spooky.

Also, it seems strange to me that they did it at this airport, without telling anyone. Couldn't the same drill be accomplished at any number of abandoned fields without disturbing civilian air traffic?

I honestly have no idea, maybe it is just a drill, but this one seems odd.
 Quoting: Bud Fox


Oh you're about to get much more spooked out then. ~

Revelation 18:17-21

For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’

“They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’

“Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!”

Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore.

Yes. Good to know our current administration is keeping our boys at the ready. The CCP is obviously willing to pull all sorts of blatant crap. Texas A&M had at least one operative hiding on their payroll, and who was arrested; who knows what else is going on in that area...

I don't live there, but I did spend some significant time in that area years ago. College Station is right between Houston, Austin, and Fort Hood, all of which would be targets in a war. Maybe that is what they are alluding to? Maybe it would be where they would stage outside target areas?

JUST TALKING. THE PRESIDENTIAL CORRIDOR FOR GEORGE BUSH LIBRARY GOES RIGHT BY THE AIRPORT. IT RUNS TO AUSTIN. THE LOOP IT'S ON GOES INTO HWY 6 AND CONNECTS WITH HOUSTON IN THE SOUTH AND DFW IN THE NORTH. IT MIGHT QUALIFY AS A STRATEGIC ROAD JUNCTION. IT'S ABOUT 300 MILES STRAIGHT-LINE TO THE MEXICAN BORDER.

Sorry I made a mistake, they were from Ft. Bliss near El Paso. They flew it in and was practicing rapid deployment as this is a little used airport out in the sticks and a quick flight made for a good field deployment. They can't hardly take leave these days because of Covid so they have a lot of time for training.

Jade Helm.

There are tunnels beneath the airport that go to a nearby Walmart.

That is where the UN and russian troops have been hiding, waiting for the go signal.
