Dugway expansion: Is it the new Area 51 ?

Posted on Saturday, 2 April, 2005 | Comment icon 7 comments

"Does the Army want to expand its Dugway Proving Ground in Utah so it can forcibly obtain nearby land it contaminated with chemical weapons but has refused to clean? Or does it want to keep UFO-hunting groups farther away from the secretive base because they now closely watch it, suspecting that it stores and works on alien spacecraft as a "new Area 51"? Pick either theory or one of your own because the Army isn't going to say."

I think the sign is a stock photo. Either way. The expansion would not be that hard to imagine as the military is looking to expand it's operations in Utah for several reasons. 1. Remoteness of the locations. Most of the state is desert and sage brush. But due to it being high desert, has extremes in weather. 2. Political influence. Utah, considered the cradle of current mormonism, a religious group who are, by and large very patriotic, would be less nosey than a more liberal state such as Nevada. 3. Better infrastructure in regards to roads connecting other bases/facilities. While Groom had a... [More]

Dugway Proving Ground adjoins the even larger Utah Test & Training Range (UTTR), which is a huge bombing and test-flight area operated by the Air Force. The UTTR takes in parts of Idaho, Utah and Nevada. That photo was obviously taken at the boundary of the UTTR. The reporter who took that photo didn't know Dugway from the UTTR. By international treaty, the outdoor use of chemical or biological agents --- even to test defenses --- is banned. Signatory countries send inspectors to each other all the time, to ensure compliance. The US sends inspectors to France, Israel, Great Britain, Russia... [More]

A good up date Gatofeo. Thank you. You ex-military also or just like to keep up on local events? Ex military. I have good, plausible sources when it comes to Dugway Proving Ground. I live in Utah, near it.
