U.N. vehicles have been spotted in Virginia, shocking motorists and sparking conspiracy theories


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...nterstate.html


Fernando Johnson questioned online: 'Tactical Vehicles, with bullet proof glass? Whatever could those be for, and why are UN vehicles here, in THIS country?!'

Meanwhile, Vincent Sammons noted on Facebook: 'They are sealed against gas too.'

Another online commenter said: 'We have U.N. vehicles being shipped on U.S. highways. One has to wonder why?'

Bobby Wayne Guinn posted on Facebook that he had witnessed similar scenes in Texas.

He wrote: 'Wondering why 30 United Nations vehicles, fully loaded with combat-prepared troops, were driving down our highway in Dallas, Texas.'


The white trucks, equipped with large off-road tyres, were seen being transported on Interstate 81 on Friday


Jeff Stern posted photos of the vehicles on Facebook, writing: 'Can't begin to tell you how many of these I passed today on 81 near Lexington VA, Interesting times ahead!'


His post sparked website Liberty is viral (http://libertyisviral.com/eyewitness...epared-troops/) to ask: 'Are these U.N. troops here preparing for economic collapse in America? Is this related to Iran ships approaching the U.S. border?' while Alex Jones posted a video warning of the 'U.N. takeover of America.'

The U.N. is an intergovernmental organisation with 193 member states.

Its objectives include maintaining international peace and security, promoting human rights, fostering social and economic development, protecting the environment, and providing humanitarian aid in cases of famine, natural disaster, and armed conflict.

DailyMail.com has reached out to the U.N. for comment.

Alpine Armoring has not responded to requests for a statement.


An image from Alpine Armoring's catalogue shows the vehicle specifications
The VX weighs in at 16,600lbs.

Seating for two plus eight crew.

Windows do not roll down, instead there are locked gun ports on the vehicle that can be opened to shoot bullets out or accept documents in and are even big enough to pass through a can of soda. Glass is a mini,



Internal fans can keep bad air out, such as in the event of a gas attack, or bring fresh air in when reversed.

PA system to speak to the outside world.

Remote-controlled spotlights on the roof and pairs of red and blue strobe lights are mounted to each four sides of the vehicle.

Every window on the vehicle is filled with ballistic glass that'll shed small arms fire like they're pebbles and even resist a close-range shot from a high-powered rifle.

There are nine gun ports.

The angled roof and floor are designed with anti-mine protection in mind and can repel modern frag explosives.



Every door overlaps with ballistic steel so no stray bullets can penetrate at an angle.

Vehicle length is 239ins and width 98ins. It's 100ins in height.

Wheels are 20ins x 11ins and are heavy duty for off-roading.

Three hatches on the roof.

Fuel tank is fully protected and encased in ballistic steel.

The UN can't even perform its assigned peacekeeping tasks with competence, they couldn't take over and run a kindergarten, let alone staging an armed takeover of America. Moreover USA is not going to collapse anytime soon. These vehicles are probably just being transported by road.

Blue helmets offer a good aiming point for armor piercing ammo being turned over to them one round at a time..
