This is from memory so forgive any errors. I read once that during WWI the military realized that soldiers were hesitant to fire on the enemy when first deployed. They determined that the taking of a human life is something that we are programmed to resist; it is not in our nature to kill each other. To counteract this resistance targets were redesigned to be in the shape of a person, just like the ones we use today. The military found that shooting at human shaped targets desensitized soldiers to killing real people and made them less likely to resist doing their duty.

Is it possible that training in American towns will be used to desensitize American soldiers to being deployed on our soil and attacking their fellow Americans?

Shouldn't someone be asking this question?

"The Marines are landing in our backyard.

2,300 Marines are converging on this region for two weeks of intensive training in preparation for an upcoming deployment.

Part of the training involves exercises in small cities in Kentucky and southern Indiana. Simulated missions will take place in Frankfort late next week.

Beginning today, you may see Marine aircraft in the skies. They include the Cobra and Chinook helicopters and Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft.

The Marines, from Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, will base their training at Camp Atterbury in southern Indiana."
