ON APRIL 18TH – MAY 5TH, 2017, STATE, LOCAL, AND FEDERAL ORGANIZATIONS ALIKE ARE PLANNING FOR OPERATION GOTHAM SHIELD 2017, SIMULATING A NUCLEAR ATTACK ON THE EAST COAST

EDITOR’S NOTE: Before you simply roll your eyes and say ‘conspiracy theory nuts’, remember the following tidbits of information.

Amazing coincidences, aren’t they?

Predictably Snopes has already issued their “nothing to see here” response and Google predictably has made sure it’s the first link you see when you do a search for ‘Operation Gotham Shield‘. After having had so much practice with deception, all the key players now operate as a very well-oiled machine.

Please see link at the bottom of this article to read the official PDF from the DOE and the NNSA on the planned exercise.

A general alert is out for something major in the near or immediate future.

Hopefully, it is just another false alarm, instead of another false flag. Either way, and danger is at hand. Given all that is going on in the world, it is downright eerie to discover that the federal government is once again staging mock disasters that draw disturbing parallels with current world events.

ON APRIL 18TH THRU MAY 5TH, 2017, STATE, LOCAL, AND FEDERAL ORGANIZATIONS ALIKE ARE PLANNING FOR OPERATION GOTHAM SHIELD 2017 — A MAJOR NUCLEAR DETONATION DRILL IN THE NEW YORK-NEW JERSEY AREA, ALONG WITH THE U.S.-CANADIAN BORDER. DURING THIS EXERCISE, 4 NUCLEAR DEVICES, 2 OF WHICH ARE RENDERED “SAFE” DURING THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DOD) VITAL ARCHER EXERCISE, AND ONE SUCCESSFUL 10KT DETONATION IN THE NYC/NJ AREA, ALONG WITH ONE SMALLER DETONATION ON THE U.S./CANADIAN BORDER ARE TO TAKE PLACE.

AMONG THE ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED ARE:

  • U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)
  • U.S. Department of Defense (DOD)
  • U.S. Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO)
  • U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
  • U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
  • U.S. Northern Command (NORTHCOM)
  • State of New Jersey Office of Emergency Management
  • State of New York Office of Emergency Management
  • City of New York Office of Emergency Management

Operation Gotham Shield

In his latest video, Youtuber DAHBOO7 breaks down “Operation Gotham Shield”, a nuclear/EMP readiness exercise set to take place Apr. 24 – 26 in and around New York City and Jersey City.

“It is a big operation that is involving the simulation of a detonated nuclear device,” DAHBOO7 said. “It’s going down in the New Jersey area […] fanning over into Manhatten.”

“They are doing it near the end of the Lincoln Tunnel,” he said.

Four simulated nuclear devices will exist in the exercise, “two of which will be rendered safe […] one [wil be] a successful 10 kiloton detonation in the NYC-New Jersey area along with a smaller detonation along the U.S.-Canadian border,” he said.

DAHBOO7 fears that the drill has the potential to “go live” to become the “next false flag.”

OPERATION GOTHAM SHIELD DETAILS

  • A post entitled ‘Operation Gotham Shield’ appeared as a thread in a forum on Thursday by an anonymous users.
  • The user posted above an excerpt taken from a Facebook post revealing the details of the exercise.
  • The post was said to have been shared to the Health Care Association of New Jersey’s page earlier this month.
  • It explained details of the exercise and that it would occur April 24-25.
  • Another mention of Operation Gotham Shield had been posted to the Eastern Region Helicopter Council on March 27, which revealed more details about the time and place the drill will be conducted.
  • ‘This exercise will simulate a large scale terrorist attack on the NY/NJ metropolitan area with MetLife Stadium serving as a triage/collection point for victims and emergency response personnel.’
  • ‘This will be a large scale event with numerous federal, state, county and local agencies participating.’
  • ‘It should be very similar in size and scope to the Operation Red Zone drill of 2011.’

 

A general alert is out for something major in the near or immediate future. Hopefully, it is just another false alarm, instead of another false flag. Either way, danger is at hand.

Given all that is going on in the world, it is downright eerie to discover that the federal government is once again staging mock disasters that draw disturbing parallels with current world events.

In just a day or so during April 24-26th, Operation Gotham Shield will commence.

It is a tabletop, joint agency exercise involving FEMA, Homeland Security and a myriad of law enforcement and military agencies. WMD, chemical and biological units will all be on hand as a response is tested for a “simulated” nuclear detonation over the United States’ foremost urban center, in the iconic and densely populated island of Manhattan and nearby shores of New Jersey.

 

What happens if New York gets nuked? Scientists simulate 20 MILLION people in massive computer system to see how state would respond to a nuclear attack

  • Scientists at Virginia’s George Mason University are running the 3-5-year study
  • Their simulation puts up to 20 million ‘agents’ in a simulated New York
  • Each one has family members, needs, jobs, and personal reactions to events 
  • Their reactions will be modeled over 30 virtual days, in 5-15-minute ‘steps’
  • Some may try to reach loved ones, while others will help injured strangers
  • Researchers are using personal testimonies of disaster survivors to make agents
  • By the end it should take a bank of computers two days to run the full simulation 

Scientists are conducting a massive computer simulation to work out how New York would respond to a nuclear attack in the heart of Manhattan.

The three-year, $450,000 project will simulate two nuclear detonations and their effects on up to 20 million virtual ‘agents’ each representing  civilian, first responder or other official over the course of 30 days.

Nuke on New York – Not nice viewing

But first they need to input data – a lot of data, taken from disaster reports across the US – to figure out how individuals really react to catastrophe.

‘Computational social science is not experimental.’ Professor William Kennedy of Virginia’s George Mason University told The Atlantic. ‘We don’t terrorize people and see how they behave.’

As well as ‘big data’ statistics, the researchers are using individual testimonies from disaster survivors to govern their virtual victims’ reactions.

And that doesn’t necessarily mean movie-style panic and screaming in the streets, said Kennedy, who is heading up the project at the Center for Social Complexity along with Andrew Crooks.

‘We’ve found that people seem to be reasonably well behaved and do what they’ve been trained to, or are asked or told to do by local authorities,’ he said.

‘Reports from 9/11 show that people walked down many tens of flights of stairs, relatively quietly, sometimes carrying each other, to escape buildings.’

But there are other cases, he explained, where things haven’t gone so well – such as the response to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

‘There, we have reports that people already didn’t trust the government, and then with the isolation resulting from the flooding, they were actually shooting at people trying to help.’

Once their personalities have been set, the agents – up to 20 million, roughly the same population as New York state – will be dropped into a virtual New York map and left to react to events as they unfold.

The simulated bombs will have a strength of 10 kilotons. For comparison, the bombs dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima were around 20 kilotons, and North Korea’s current missiles are in the 2-5 kiloton ranges.
