    Go to a link within the OP link and you'll find this;
    EXCERPT:
    ...
    Texas and six other states are hosting the exercises on public and private lands. The Army says the terrain and topography in the areas selected are ideal to replicate foreign combat zones.

    No other governor had so publicly addressed the training exercise.

    "It is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed," Abbott wrote. "By monitoring the Operation on a continual basis, the State Guard will facilitate communications between my office and the commanders of the Operation to ensure that adequate measures are in place to protect Texans."

    Since it sounds like this multi-state training exercise is not totally confined to military bases and will be active on other public and private lands, seems prudent to have some "third-party" oversight, especially should there be any events or damage that could result in litigations and/or claims(court) charged against DoD.

    But then some will grasp any straw to try and slam the political Right
    where where the Lonnies back in
    WWII when they had muliti state maneuvers with combat troops.

    Nobody has to grasp, it's more like walking in the park. If you except that the Gov of TX reactions are anything like normal then your just as lost as he is. TX's has been the home of large combat formations since WWII Something like 40'000 just at Ft Hood.

      ^ WWII was a vastly different time and mindset in the USA, you are comparing bananas to apples here.

      I suggested the concern wasn't about "a" military presence in Texas, especially bases such as Ft. Hood (know about it, have had family stationed there), rather the "off base" activities of this planned training exercise.

      As for your source, NPR, this is rather amusing;

      Did I mention the ISIS terrorists? They've come across the border and are going to hit soft targets all across the Southwest. They've set up camp a few miles outside of El Paso.
      That includes a Mexican army officer and Mexican federal police inspector. Not sure what they're doing there, but probably nothing good. That's why the Special Forces guys are here, get it? To wipe out ISIS and impose martial law. So now you know, whaddya say we get back to the party and grab another beer?

      Next day we have a Jihadi attack in Texas and ISIS is claiming a part in it.

      Talk about being clueless and making mountains out of molehills. Injury to insult is that NPR gets taxpayer funding.

        So just how just all your next to meaningless reply end the fact that we still have a
        Corp headquarters and the best part of two divisions in FT Hood plus AF units and units stationed in FT Bliss, Ft Sill OK and Ft Polk LA. Seems like the fool in Austin is pretty well surrounded.

        Do I really like supporting a fool? Silly question, you voted for GW twiice
