(Natural News) Imagine, if you will, America’s cities being turned into battlefields. The sidewalks where average civilians once walked would be turned into paths for U.S. soldiers armed with weapons and bulletproof armor. The cars that once filled the streets would be replaced with military vehicles and tanks. Scattered fires and broken windows would be something you would see on every other block.
Sounds dark, doesn’t it? Truth be told, it may one day become a reality. (RELATED: Read about how martial law may soon be introduced in America)
Given the amount of political protests that occur today, many of which turn violent and downright destructive, the military is dedicating more and more time to train for urban warfare. Should one of America’s major cities fall apart at the hands of a massive, out of control riot, the United States military will need to go in and restore order.

In Southern Indiana, the U.S. army owns and operates a 1000-acre urban warfare training center, which contains more than 1,500 “training structures.” These structures are meant to simulate houses, apartment buildings, schools, hospitals, and other facilities that you would typically find in urban areas of the country. In 2015, it was reported that the U.S. military was conducting urban warfare training in Broward County, Florida. 200 military personal participated in the training, the goal of which was to prepare soldiers for battle in unfamiliar areas overseas. According the military, these urban locations couldn’t be replicated on a practice battlefield.
