Militia Training Operations

Most of the kinds of tactical training that militia units across the country have been doing have been focused on the tactical situations found in conventional or counterinsurgency warfare. And most of the alert systems that have been set up depend on telephone communications. While such exercises have some merit, they neglect the kinds of scenarios that we are more likely to face. This video describes in a general way a different kind of exercise designed to prepare militiamen for more likely scenarios, emphasizing reconnaissance, intelligence, and insurgency methods.

Think of ourselves as a spider, spinning of web to catch some flies. In this case, the flies are corrupt or abusive officials or other criminals. Our objective is to gather and distribute evidence, protect witnesses, investigators, and other innocent persons, and bring the perpetrators to justice.
