Murphy Danahy proposes that we must shift our paradigms about what makes a “good” military leader, and that failing to do so may cause us to lose our next big war. Utilizing several psychological studies about the way that people are hard wired to think, Danahy believes that he has found the key to improving military recruiting and retention programs. Murphy Danahy is a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Army. As a Cadet at the United States Military Academy, he was a Psychology major and was particularly interested in how US Army leadership development models have changed over time. He often applied psychological theories to normative analyses on the Army’s leadership evaluation methods.

Asheville Police unveils a new operations plan that will guide the department's policy for the next three years. The plan includes spending time talking with people in the neighborhoods. That's a key part of what they call the Strategic Operations Plan. Police Chief William Anderson released the plan to the public. The department spent ten months listening to residents in community meetings, and developing goals to improve efficiency. It focuses on diversity in hiring, and then paying officers enough to stay on the force. The Chief says officers want this to be a new day for the department. The plan focuses on community resource officers, one per neighborhood, to stay in close contact with residents. The crowd continued offering suggestions Thursday night, asking officers to give them information about crimes they're investigating. West Asheville resident Mark Lewis says police need to make followup reports to residents who report crimes. He says, "just for that peace of mind, and also for the intelligence for the rest of the community, if you want to have community watch and community safety, I think the community needs to be informed as to the status of what's going on with someone." Community meetings are part of the three year plan, and the Chief says residents' suggestions could become policy. Click here to see the Strategic Operations Plan. By: Sherrill Barber

Keep us alive: http://russia-insider.com/support Visit us! http://russia-insider.com/en Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RussiaInsider?ref=aymt_homepage_panel Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/RussiaInsider On Monday, Russian military forces began a massive six-day war games exercise codenamed Caucasus 2016 including servicemen from the country’s naval, airborne and aerospace units conducted in the South of Russia in and around Crimea. The military exercise served the purpose of "planning, preparation and conducting combat operations," but many defense analysts interpreted the show of military force to be a direct message to Ukraine and its Western allies regarding Russia’s control over the Crimean peninsula. The exercise was conducted at the Opuk training range on the Black Sea Coast with drills involving warships, aircraft and tanks, with Moscow firing its S-300 and S-400 missile systems. "On such a scale and with the deployment of different force groupings, such drills are being held for the first time," said defense ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov highlighting the unprecedented nature of the massive show of Russian military force. "This training range is the biggest on the Crimean peninsula, which allows for such exercises to be held." The drills were overseen by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and the head of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov as well as Crimean leader Sergei Aksyonov. "Strategic drills are essential to military training in Russia in 2016 with a focus on different troops working together. You should not twist this into anything – there’s no politics," explained Konvashenkov emphasizing that the drills should not be construed as a message to Russia’s neighbors despite the West’s rush to describe it as just that. The war games come one month after President Vladimir Putin accused Ukraine of sending a group of saboteurs into Crimea to engage in terror strikes against Russian personnel adding to Western suspicions that Moscow wants to make its control over the peninsula clear Read more: https://sputniknews.com/russia/20160911/1045183103/russia-crimea-war-games-military.html

But many are worried this aggressive posture will lead to a repeat of the mistakes of the past. "As I don't know the purpose and intention of unidentified aircraft approaching our air space, I always become tense", says Sho Yoshida, a fighter pilot with Japan's Self Defence Forces. This unified military outfit was formed following the Allied occupation of Japan at the end of WW2, and is constitutionally restricted to defending the nation. But now a heightening feud with China over the disputed Senkaku Islands, as well as the country's proximity to a wildly unpredictable North Korea, has led Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to reinterpret the legal framework that governs the SDF, with a view to transforming it into a force equipped for offensive operations. "Unless it has the power to strike, it cannot become a so-called 'deterrent power'", explains retired general Toshio Tamogami. And after a number of well-funded recruitment campaigns, enrolments at Japan's elite military college are at a record high. But not everyone here support the moves. "Japan has not really reflected on its past", bemoans Tadmasa Iwaii, a WW2 veteran and former Kamikaze-turned-pacifist. "It hurts my conscience."

INTRODUCTION Their army’s equipment and strategy was “outmoded”; their air force’s bombs and missiles were “more dumb than smart”; their navy was “more rust than ready”. For decades, this was Western military leaders’ view, of their Russian counterparts. What they have seen in Syria and Ukraine has come as a shock. Russian military jets have, at times, have carried out more sorties in a day in Syria than the US-led coalition has done in a month. The Russian navy has launched ballistic missiles from the Caspian Sea 900 miles way, and kept supply lines going to Syria. The air defenses installed by the Russians in Syria and eastern Ukraine would make it extremely hazardous for the West to carry out strikes against the Assad regime or Ukrainian separatists. In this video, Defense Updates looks at HOW PUTIN’S RUSSIA HAS SIDELINED US & NATO IN SYRIA WITH MILITARY MIGHT ? INCEPTION The unrest in Syria, part of a wider wave of 2011 Arab Spring protests, grew out of discontent with the Assad government and escalated to an armed conflict after protests calling for his removal were violently suppressed. Syrian opposition groups formed the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and seized control of the area surrounding Aleppo and parts of southern Syria. Over time, some factions of the Syrian opposition split from their original moderate position to pursue an Islamist vision for Syria, joining groups such as al-Nusra Front and ISIL. Iran, Russia and Hezbollah support the Syrian government militarily, while beginning in 2014, a coalition of NATO countries began launching airstrikes against ISIL. International organizations have accused the Syrian government, ISIL and rebel groups of severe human rights violations and of many massacres. U.S leaders have called for removal of Assad. Hillary Clinton as US Secretary of State in 2011:”The world will not waver, Assad must go”. Obama as US President in 2015: “Assad must go”. Trump as US President : “Assad won’t get away with 'horrible' crimes" RUSSIAN INTERVENTION & GOALS The Russian military intervention in the Syrian Civil War began in September 2015, after an official request by the Syrian Government for military help against rebel and jihadist groups.The intervention initially consisted of air strikes fired by Russian aircraft stationed in the Khmeimim base at targets primarily in north-western Syria, against militant groups opposed to the Syrian government, including Syrian National Coalition, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda in the Levant). BOMBING RAIDS FROM AIR & SEA Russian forces in Syria were reported to have used a mix of precision-guided munitions and unguided weapons.The October 2015 airstrikes were Russia's first operational use of precision-guided munitions, whose development in Russia lagged behind other nations due to economic instability in the 1990s. The majority of weapons employed, however, were unguided. S 400 AIR DEFENSE SYSTEM The deployment of S 400 come after Turkish fighter jets shot a Russian Su-24M bomber out of the sky. It was seen as a backstabbing by Russia. President Vladimir Putin warned of “serious consequences" over the downed Sukhoi Su-24, which Turkey claims ignored 10 warnings to keep out of its airspace at the Syrian border. S 400 is considered to be most powerful air defense system in the world. Each S-400 battalion is equipped with 8 launchers, a control center and radar. Each of these 8 launchers is equipped with 32 missiles, so a single S400 has 256 missiles onboard. The S-400 uses 4 different missiles along with a multilayered radar-tracking umbrella to cover its entire performance envelope. RUSSIA’S SPECIAL FORCES SPETSNAZ Since their arrival in September, the Russians have used naval infantry to secure a key port in Tartus and the perimeter of an airfield in Latakia. Russian troops had long helped advise and train Syrian forces. But Russian special forces operating on the front — aside from a small number of artillery and tank units — have remained mostly out of the public eye. CONCLUSION Exactly one year ago, Syrian President Bashar al Assad, with Russia’s help, was laying waste to the last rebel-held neighborhoods of Aleppo. The task is almost complete, with Assad firmly in control and U.S & NATO influence marginalized. In his comments to the press recently, Mr Putin said Russian efforts would soon switch from the battlefield to reconstruction. He added, “Military co-operation had saved Syria from collapse and long-term normalization was now possible.” As Mr Putin meet with Mr Assad and his Iranian and Turkish counterparts to discuss a framework for “post-conflict” Syria, his role as the Middle East’s most important foreign deal-breaker is secured.

軍 "北 핵사용 징후 포착되면 평양 지도서 사라지게 할것" The South Korean military announced it has an operational plan that could annihilate Pyongyang should the need arises. It involves pre-emptive bombing when signs of an imminent nuclear attack are detected. Oh Soo-young has details of Seoul's rhetoric which echoes that of the communist state. According to a military source on Sunday, South Korea's defense ministry has reported its plan, dubbed "Korea Massive Punishment and Retaliation" to the National Assembly. The concept is to launch pre-emptive bomb strikes on a certain area of Pyongyang, targeting Kim Jong-un and the military leadership, if the regime shows signs of using its nuclear weapons. The South would use high explosive shells as well as its homegrown ballistic missiles, including the Hyunmoo 2A, 2B and 3, which have respective ranges of three-hundred, five-hundred and 1-thousand kilometers. The military aims to complete launch testing by the end of next year... and expand the Hyunmoo lineup. Also, as a show of force against the North,... the United States will dispatch its some of its strategic military assets to Korea as early as Monday. These are likely to include units from its long-range arsenal like the B-52, B-1B and B-2 bombers from the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam. Meanwhile, next month, South Korea and the United States will conduct joint naval exercises... to simulate the targeting of major military facilities in the event of war. The U.S. will deploy the USS Ronald Reagan, the flagship of one of its carrier strike groups. The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier can carry up to eighty combat fighters and aircraft,... and a crew of more than 5-thousand. The defense contingency measures come amid concerns expressed by the American media about the growing possibility of the North's missiles reaching the U.S. mainland. On Saturday, the Wall Street Journal remarked on the North's fast-paced nuclear development, saying that "the rogue regime will soon have an arsenal that can hit Chicago." The New York Times also highlighted the dangers, suggesting that the North will have the knowhow to develop a nuclear warhead by the year 2020. Oh Soo-young, Arirang News.

Operation Popeye The Vietnam war saw the US military experiment with a number of new technologies, but one of the most far reached projects was known as Operation Popeye. It was the only known attempt at weather modification that has taken place for military purposes, and was considered a relative success! For understandable reasons, the government tried their best to keep it under wraps. This operation took place between 1967 and 1972 and was focused on areas of the Ho Chi Minh Trail. In an attempt to limit the movements of the Vietcong in the region, clouds were seeded with silver iodide to try and extend the monsoon season. The increased rainfall would then soften the road surfaces with mud, cause landslides, destroy river crossings and make the land much more difficult to cross for long periods of time. The program was overseen by Henry Kissinger, the Secretary of State at the time, along with the CIA- but controversially it was done without the knowledge of the secretary of Defence, Melvin Laird, who had expressly denied any attempts of weather modification to Congress. Maybe it was plausible deniability….any way... The operation was quite successful at slowing down truck traffic in the targeted areas due to the increased rainfall. In some cases, it extended the monsoon season for up to 45 days. Scary to think that this is proof that controlling the weather can actually work, and that the government has actually done it before! The operation was forced to end, though, when the New York Times exposed the details in 1972, and Congress took steps to ban what they called environmental warfare. Weather modification for militaristic purposes is now outlawed under the International Environmental Modification Convention, so all further research has officially ceased. 9. Operation Washtub With Alaska’s proximity to Russia, it’s perhaps no surprise that extra steps were taken during the 50’s to protect the nation from any attack that might come from the north. At the time, Alaska was still only a US territory, and the operation ran from 1951 through 1959 when it became a fully fledged state. The Soviets were helping North Korea battle the South, but it was thought by many to be a distraction from their true aim- to either attack Northern Europe or America. The idea was that, if the Soviets were to launch an assault involving bombings and the dropping of paratroopers, there would be a number of civilian agents who could hide in the remote wilderness and transmit intelligence to the American military. These SBA’s, or Stay Behind Agents, would make their way to survival stashes of food, gear, and communications equipment. A second group of civilian agents would be tasked with helping military personnel who had become trapped in Soviet held areas, to escape back to safety. One of the rules of soviet conduct instructed them to eliminate any resistance found in occupied territory. This meant that officials were so worried about the threat, that they also trained reserve agents outside of Alaska who could be dropped into place should the need arise. The Operation was marked as top secret, and in total 89 agents were trained and paid $3,000 for their involvement. Of course, the plan was never put into action because the perceived threat never came, but it was only in 2014 that the truth behind Operation Washtub was revealed due to a Freedom of Information request. 8. Polyus Battlestation During the Cold War, the US was involved in the development of countless secret projects, but as we know, as usual Russia was doing the same too. One of the most famous American projects that never saw the light of day, as far as we know, became known as the Star Wars Defense Program- but the Soviets had their own equivalent- the Polyus Battlestation. This monstrous creation was actually built, and was designed to operate as an orbital weapons platform that could destroy other satellites by using an inbuilt array of lasers. This weapon was seen as being so powerful, that Gorbachev actually expressly prohibited the in-orbit testing of its power, because this in itself could be interpreted by other nations as the development of a space weapon.

South Korea and the U.S. have now a new plan that aims to preemptively strike North Korea′s weapons of mass destruction in case of war. What′s more， the two allies are already reported to have practiced the new strategy in their joint military drill currently taking place. Connie Kim has the details. South Korea and the U.S. have reportedly signed a new upgraded operational plan which the two allies will execute in the event of war on the Korean peninsula. Seoul′s military source said Thursday that Admiral Choi Yoon－hee， chairman of South Korea′s Joint Chiefs of Staff， and General Curtis Scaparrotti， commander of U.S. Forces Korea， signed the OPLAN 5015 to replace the current OPLAN 5027 in June. The new operational plan aims to preemptively strike North Korea′s Weapons of Mass Destruction including ballistic missiles and biochemical weapons in the outbreak of war. The current plan is focused more on defense， where the two allies would retreat first and then launch an attack to tackle a North Korean invasion. The two allies had agreed to work on this new operational plan back in 2010 to counter Pyongyang′s threat and effectively respond to changing strategies. A South Korean military official said Pyongyang′s striking power has grown with its developments in nuclear weapons and missiles. The new plan has already been applied throughout the 12－day Ulchi Freedom Guardian drill taking place in the South until the 28th. A South Korean military official said this year′s exercise focused on minimizing the damage in the likelihood North Korea uses its biochemical weapons.

China has established numerous military installations in the South China Sea, primarily in the Spratly and Paracel Islands. In the Spratlys, China has built airfields at Subi, Mischief and Fiery Cross, along with potential missile, radar and helicopter infrastructure at several smaller formations. In the Paracels, China has established a significant military installation at Woody Island, as well as radar and helicopter facilities in several other areas. China continues construction across the region, meaning that it may expand its military presence in the future. The larger bases — Subi, Mischief, Fiery Cross and Woody Island — have infrastructure necessary for the management of military aircraft, including fighters and large patrol craft. The installations have been objected by it neighbors such as the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Vietnam. Though the US takes no position on the territorial dispute in the South China Sea, its warships have conducted routine “freedom of navigation” operations near the reclaimed islands.

A look at recent developments in the South China Sea, where China is pitted against smaller neighbors in multiple disputes over islands, coral reefs and lagoons in waters crucial for global commerce and rich in fish and potential oil and gas reserves: This is a weekly look at the latest developments in the South China Sea, the location of several territorial conflicts that have raised tensions in the region. CHINA DEMANDS END TO US OPERATIONS China has demanded the United States stop sending ships and military aircraft close to its South China Sea island claims during talks to prepare for a meeting between President Donald Trump and President Xi Jinping. The U.S. pushed back Friday, insisting it will continue to “fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows.” In late September, U.S. and Chinese vessels nearly collided close to a disputed reef.

Most military innovations involve the employment of some technological development. Yet, one of the most influential of such innovations is the development of the General Staff, which one British author referred to as “the Brain of an Army.” First developed in Prussia, this much-imitated organization was essential to success in war since the 1860s. Jonathan House is Professor of Military History at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College. A graduate of Hamilton College, he received both his doctorate in French military history and his commission in the U.S. Army at the University of Michigan in 1975. House retired as a colonel of Military Intelligence. He is the author of Combined Arms Warfare in the Twentieth Century (2001), A Military History of the Cold War, 1944-1962 (2012), and Controlling Paris: Armed Forces and Counter-Revolution, 1789-1848 (2014). He is also the co-author, with David Glantz, of numerous studies of the Soviet-German portion of World War II.

The Lockheed C-5 Galaxy is a large military transport aircraft built by Lockheed. It provides the United States Air Force (USAF) with a heavy intercontinental-range strategic airlift capability, one that can carry outsize and oversize cargos, including all air-certifiable cargo. The Galaxy has many similarities to its smaller C-141 Starlifter predecessor, and the later C-17 Globemaster. The C-5 is among the largest military aircraft in the world. The C-5 Galaxy had a complicated development; significant cost overruns were experienced and Lockheed suffered significant financial difficulties. Shortly after entering service, fractures in the wings of many aircraft were discovered and the C-5 fleet were restricted in capability until corrective work was conducted. The C-5M Super Galaxy is an upgraded version with new engines and modernized avionics designed to extend its service life beyond 2040. The C-5 Galaxy has been operated by USAF since 1969. In that time, it has been used to support US military operations in all major conflicts including Vietnam, Iraq, Yugoslavia and Afghanistan; as well as in support of allies, such as Israel during the Yom Kippur War and NATO operations in the Gulf War. The C-5 has also been used to distribute humanitarian aid and disaster relief, and support the US Space Shuttle program run by NASA. http://military-transport-aircrafts.blogspot.com

http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=20584 ------------------Towards a World War III Scenario? The Role of Israel in Triggering an Attack on Iran ----- Part II The Military Road Map by Michel Chossudovsky ----------------- The stockpiling and deployment of advanced weapons systems directed against Iran started in the immediate wake of the 2003 bombing and invasion of Iraq. From the outset, these war plans were led by the US, in liaison with NATO and Israel. Following the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the Bush administration identified Iran and Syria as the next stage of "the road map to war". US military sources intimated that an aerial attack on Iran could involve a large scale deployment comparable to the US "shock and awe" bombing raids on Iraq in March 2003: "American air strikes on Iran would vastly exceed the scope of the 1981 Israeli attack on the Osiraq nuclear center in Iraq, and would more resemble the opening days of the 2003 air campaign against Iraq.(See Globalsecurity ) "Theater Iran Near Term" Code named by US military planners as TIRANNT, "Theater Iran Near Term", simulations of an attack on Iran were initiated in May 2003 "when modelers and intelligence specialists pulled together the data needed for theater-level (meaning large-scale) scenario analysis for Iran." ( (William Arkin, Washington Post, 16 April 2006). The scenarios identified several thousand targets inside Iran as part of a "Shock and Awe" Blitzkrieg: "The analysis, called TIRANNT, for "Theater Iran Near Term," was coupled with a mock scenario for a Marine Corps invasion and a simulation of the Iranian missile force. U.S. and British planners conducted a Caspian Sea war game around the same time. And Bush directed the U.S. Strategic Command to draw up a global strike war plan for an attack against Iranian weapons of mass destruction. All of this will ultimately feed into a new war plan for "major combat operations" against Iran that military sources confirm now [April 2006] exists in draft form. ... Under TIRANNT, Army and U.S. Central Command planners have been examining both near-term and out-year scenarios for war with Iran, including all aspects of a major combat operation, from mobilization and deployment of forces through postwar stability operations after regime change." (William Arkin, Washington Post, 16 April 2006) Different "theater scenarios" for an all out attack on Iran had been contemplated: "The US army, navy, air force and marines have all prepared battle plans and spent four years building bases and training for "Operation Iranian Freedom". Admiral Fallon, the new head of US Central Command, has inherited computerized plans under the name TIRANNT (Theatre Iran Near Term)." (New Statesman, February 19, 2007) In 2004, drawing upon the initial war scenarios under TIRANNT, Vice President Dick Cheney instructed USSTRATCOM to draw up a "contingency plan" of a large scale military operation directed against Iran "to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States" on the presumption that the government in Tehran would be behind the terrorist plot. The plan included the pre-emptive use of nuclear weapons against a non-nuclear state: "The plan includes a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons. Within Iran there are more than 450 major strategic targets, including numerous suspected nuclear-weapons-program development sites. Many of the targets are hardened or are deep underground and could not be taken out by conventional weapons, hence the nuclear option. As in the case of Iraq, the response is not conditional on Iran actually being involved in the act of terrorism directed against the United States. Several senior Air Force officers involved in the planning are reportedly appalled at the implications of what they are doing—that Iran is being set up for an unprovoked nuclear attack—but no one is prepared to damage his career by posing any objections." (Philip Giraldi, Deep Background,The American Conservative August 2005) The Military Road Map: "First Iraq, then Iran" The decision to target Iran under TIRANNT was part of the broader process of military planning and sequencing of military operations. Already under the Clinton administration, US Central Command (USCENTCOM) had formulated "in war theater plans" to invade first Iraq and then Iran. Access to Middle East oil was the stated strategic objective:

Watch This Crazy Video : The Most Powerful Gunship in US Air Force (Video/Thumbnail Picture just For Ilustration) The Lockheed AC-130 gunship is a heavily armed, long-endurance ground-attack variant of the C-130 Hercules transport fixed-wing aircraft. It carries a wide array of anti-ground oriented weapons that are integrated with sophisticated sensors, navigation, and fire-control systems. Unlike other military fixed-wing aircraft, the AC-130 relies on visual targeting. Because its large profile and low operating altitudes (around 7,000 ft) make it an easy target, it usually flies close air support missions at night. The airframe is manufactured by Lockheed Martin, while Boeing is responsible for the conversion into a gunship and for aircraft support. Developed during the Vietnam War as 'Project Gunship II', the AC-130 replaced the Douglas AC-47 Spooky, or 'Gunship I'. The sole operator is the United States Air Force, which uses the AC-130U Spooky and AC-130W Stinger II variants for close air support, air interdiction, and force protection, with the AC-130J Ghostrider in development. Close air support roles include supporting ground troops, escorting convoys, and urban operations. Air interdiction missions are conducted against planned targets and targets of opportunity. Force protection missions include defending air bases and other facilities. AC-130Us are based at Hurlburt Field, Florida, while AC-130Ws are based at Cannon AFB, New Mexico; gunships can be deployed worldwide. The squadrons are part of the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC), a component of the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM). The AC-130 has an unpressurized cabin, with the weaponry mounted to fire from the port side of the fuselage. During an attack, the gunship performs a pylon turn, flying in a large circle around the target, therefore being able to fire at it for far longer than in a conventional strafing attack. The AC-130H Spectre was armed with two 20 mm M61 Vulcan cannons, one Bofors 40 mm cannon, and one 105 mm M102 howitzer; after 1994, the 20 mm cannons were removed. The upgraded AC-130U Spooky has a single 25 mm GAU-12 Equalizer cannon in place of the Spectre's two 20 mm cannons, an improved fire control system, and increased ammunition capacity. The new AC-130J is based on the MC-130J Commando II special operations tanker as of 2012. The AC-130W is armed with one 30 mm Mk44 Bushmaster II cannon, AGM-176 Griffin missiles, and GBU-39 Small Diameter Bombs (SDBs). War on Terror An AC-130U releasing flares The U.S. has used gunships with deployments to the War in Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom – Afghanistan) (2001–2014), and Iraq War (Operation Iraqi Freedom) (2003–11). AC-130 strikes were directed by special forces on known Taliban locations during the early days of the war in Afghanistan. U.S. Special Operations Forces are using the AC-130 to support its operations. The day after arriving in Afghanistan, the AC-130s attacked Taliban and Al-Qaeda forces near the city of Konduz and were directly responsible for the city's surrender the next day. On 26 November 2001, Spectres were called in to put down a rebellion at the prison fort of Qala-I-Janghi. The 16 SOS flew missions over Mazar-i-Sharif, Kunduz, Kandahar, Shkin, Asadabad, Bagram, Baghran, Tora Bora, and virtually every other part of Afghanistan. The Spectre participated in countless operations within Afghanistan, performing on-call close air support and armed reconnaissance. In March 2002, three AC-130 Spectres provided 39 crucial combat missions in support of Operation Anaconda in Afghanistan. During the intense fighting, the planes fired more than 1,300 40 mm and 1,200 105 mm rounds. Close air support was the main mission of the AC-130 in Iraq. Night after night, at least one AC-130 was in the air to fulfill one or more air support requests (ASRs). A typical mission had the AC–130 supporting a single brigade’s ASRs followed by aerial refueling and another two hours with another brigade or SOF team. The use of AC-130s in places like Fallujah, urban settings where insurgents were among crowded populations of non-combatants, was criticized by human rights groups. AC-130s were also used for intelligence gathering with their sophisticated long-range video, infrared and radar sensors. In 2007, US Special Operations forces also used the AC-130 in attacks on suspected Al-Qaeda militants in Somalia. There were eight AC-130H and seventeen AC-130U aircraft in active-duty service as of July 2010. In March 2011, the U.S. Air Force deployed two AC-130U gunships to take part in Operation Odyssey Dawn, the U.S. military intervention in Libya, which eventually came under NATO as Operation Unified Protector.

Video shows the B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber in action as the B-2 Stealth Bomber is doing carpet bombing other B-2 bomb drops and more including the B-2 Spirit take off, B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber aearial view and the B-2 bomber during aerial refueling. The Northrop (later Northrop Grumman) B-2 Spirit, also known as the Stealth Bomber, is an American heavy penetration strategic bomber, featuring low observable stealth technology designed for penetrating dense anti-aircraft defenses; it is a flying wing design with a crew of two. The bomber can deploy both conventional and thermonuclear weapons, such as eighty 500 lb (230 kg)-class (Mk 82) JDAM Global Positioning System-guided bombs, or sixteen 2,400 lb (1,100 kg) B83 nuclear bombs. The B-2 is the only acknowledged aircraft that can carry large air-to-surface standoff weapons in a stealth configuration. Development originally started under the "Advanced Technology Bomber" (ATB) project during the Carter administration; its expected performance was one of his reasons for the cancellation of the supersonic B-1A bomber. The ATB project continued during the Reagan administration, but worries about delays in its introduction led to the reinstatement of the B-1 program as well. Program costs rose throughout development. Designed and manufactured by Northrop, later Northrop Grumman, the cost of each aircraft averaged US$737 million (in 1997 dollars). Total procurement costs averaged $929 million per aircraft, which includes spare parts, equipment, retrofitting, and software support. The total program cost including development, engineering and testing, averaged $2.1 billion per aircraft in 1997. Because of its considerable capital and operating costs, the project was controversial in the U.S. Congress and among the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The winding-down of the Cold War in the latter portion of the 1980s dramatically reduced the need for the aircraft, which was designed with the intention of penetrating Soviet airspace and attacking high-value targets. During the late 1980s and 1990s, Congress slashed plans to purchase 132 bombers to 21. In 2008, a B-2 was destroyed in a crash shortly after takeoff, though the crew ejected safely. A total of 20 B-2s remain in service with the United States Air Force, which plans to operate the B-2 until 2058. The B-2 is capable of all-altitude attack missions up to 50,000 feet (15,000 m), with a range of more than 6,000 nautical miles (6,900 mi; 11,000 km) on internal fuel and over 10,000 nautical miles (12,000 mi; 19,000 km) with one midair refueling. It entered service in 1997 as the second aircraft designed to have advanced stealth technology after the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk attack aircraft. 👉 Top Rated Military Gear ➜ http://amzn.to/2jNiZwa ►Subscribe to WarLeaks Daily Military Defense Videos & Combat Footage for more military videos: http://bit.ly/Nnic4n ►Follow Warleaks on Facebook at https://FB.com/WARLEAKER ►Follow Warleaks on Twitter at https://twitter.com/warleaksyt

Russia’s actions in Crimea, eastern Ukraine, and Syria have demonstrated the reemergence of the Russian military as one of the Kremlin’s most effective foreign policy tools. The success of these campaigns comes as a result of major military reform and modernization efforts that began in 2008. What changes led to today’s revamped Russian military? How will the Kremlin use its modernized force as a geopolitical tool? And does Russia’s new military pose a threat to the West? Ahead of the NATO Warsaw summit in July, the Center on Global Interests was pleased to host a discussion with Michael Kofman, a leading expert on Russia’s military, and Nikolas Gvosdev, Professor of National Security Affairs at the US Naval War College, on the details of Russian military capabilities and how the West should respond. Michael Purcell, Director of Operations at CGI and former Marine officer, will moderate the discussion. The event marked the release of a new CGI report – a net assessment of Russia’s military – co-authored by Michael Kofman and Russian military analyst Alexander Golts.

Great news for the Russian military plans are being made to build the worlds largest stealth military transport aircraft Pak TA. This new Stealth aircraft will provide a significant boost to Russian military power in to the future. Future Russian army could deploy anywhere in the world – in 7 hours. In the future, a fleet of heavy transport aircraft will reportedly be capable of moving a strategic unit of 400 Armata tanks, with ammunition, to anywhere in the world. And probably at hypersonic speed, enabling Russia to mount a global military response. According to a new design specification from the Military-Industrial Commission in Moscow, a transport aircraft, dubbed PAK TA, will fly at supersonic speeds (up to 2,000 km/h) and will boast an impressively high payload of up to 200 tons. It will also have a range of at least 7,000 kilometers. The PAK TA program envisages 80 new cargo aircraft to be built by 2024. This means in a decade Russia’s Central Command will be able to place a battle-ready armored army anywhere, Expert Online reports, citing a source in the military who attended the closed meeting. One of the main tasks of the new PAK TA is to transport Armata heavy missile tanks and other military hardware on the same platform, such as enhanced self-propelled artillery weapons systems, anti-aircraft missile complexes, tactical missile carriers, multiple launch missile systems, and anti-tank missile fighting vehicles. The PAK TA freighters will be multilevel, with automated cargo loading and have the capability to airdrop hardware and personnel on any terrain. A fleet of several dozen PAK TA air freighters will be able to lift 400 Armata heavy tanks, or 900 light armored vehicles, such as Sprut-SD airborne amphibious self-propelled tank destroyers. “With the development of a network of military bases in the Middle East, Latin America and Southeast Asia, which is expected to be completed during the same time period (by 2024), it’s obvious that Russia is preparing for a full-scale military confrontation of transcontinental scale,” Expert Online says. A source who attended the closed meeting of the Military-Industrial Commission told the media outlet on condition of anonymity that he was “shocked” by the demands of the military. According to the source, the PAK TA project has been ongoing for several years now and will eventually supplant the currently operating air freighters. But such a global mission statement for national military transport aviation has never been voiced before. “It means for the first time we have the objective of creating an operational capability to airlift a full-fledged army to any desired place on the planet,” the source said. This means delivering a task force the size of the former NATO and the US troops in Iraq, in a matter of hours to any continent. “In the context of the current military doctrine that defies comprehension,” the source said. The initial PAK TA specification entailed building subsonic air freighters with a conventional 900 km/h cruising speed and a moderate 4,500-kilometer range. The program involves the creation of wide-body freighters, with payloads varying from 80 to 200 tons, to replace all existing Ilyushin and Antonov cargo aircraft. The only operating aircraft with a comparable payload is the Antonov An-225 Mriya (up to 250 tons), but this is a one-off aircraft created specially for the Soviet Buran space shuttle program. Last year, it was reported that future military air freighters will be developed by the Ilyushin Aviation Complex, with some experts saying the company may base designs on the Il-106 cargo plane (80 tons) project that won a government tender in the late 1980s, but was abandoned after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Now, with ambitious specifications and objectives, the PAK TA is a truly next-generation transport aircraft. The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (Russian: Вооружённые Си́лы Росси́йской Федера́ции, tr. Vooruzhonnije Síly Rossíyskoj Federátsii) are the military service of Russia, established after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. On 7 May 1992, Boris Yeltsin signed a presidential decree establishing the Russian Ministry of Defence and placing all Soviet Armed Forces troops on the territory of the Russian SFSR under Russian control. The commander-in-chief of the armed forces is the president of Russia. Although the Russian armed forces were formed in 1992, the Russian military dates its roots back to the times of the Kievan Rus'. The armed forces are divided into: the three "branches of Armed Forces" (вида вооружённых сил): the Ground Force, Air Force, and the Navy the three "separate troop branches" (Отдельные рода войск): the Strategic Missile Troops, the Aerospace Defense Forces and the Airborne Troops the Rear of the Armed Forces, which has a separate status of its own

HELLO GUYS HOW R U ALL , IN THIS VIDEO IM TALK ABOUT TOP 10 MOST POWERFUL COUNTRIES IN WORLD. A military or an armed force is a professional organization formally authorized by a sovereign state to use lethal or deadly force and weapons to support the interests of the state. It typically consists of branches such as an Army, Navy, Air Force, and in certain countries the Marines and Coast Guard. The task of the military is usually defined as defense of the state, and its citizens, and the prosecution of war against another state. The military may also have additional sanctioned and non-sanctioned functions within a society, including, the promotion of a political agenda, protecting corporate economic interests, internal population control, construction, emergency services, social ceremonies, and guarding important areas. The military may also function as a discrete subculture within a larger civil society, through the development of separate infrastructures, which may include housing, schools, utilities, logistics, health and medical, law, food production, finance and banking. In broad usage, the terms "armed forces" and "military" are often treated as synonymous, although in technical usage a distinction is sometimes made in which a country's armed forces may include both its military and other paramilitary forces. Armed force is the use of armed forces to achieve political objectives. There are various forms of irregular military forces, not belonging to a recognized state; though they share many attributes with regular military forces, they are less often referred to as simply "military An aircraft carrier is a warship that serves as a seagoing airbase, equipped with a full-length flight deck and facilities for carrying, arming, deploying, and recovering aircraft. Typically, it is the capital ship of a fleet, as it allows a naval force to project air power worldwide without depending on local bases for staging aircraft operations. Carriers have evolved since their inception in the early twentieth century from wooden vessels used to deploy balloons to nuclear-powered warships that carry numerous fighters, strike aircraft, helicopters, and other types of aircraft. While heavier aircraft such as fixed-wing gunships and bombers have been launched from aircraft carriers, it is currently not possible to land them. By its diplomatic and tactical power, its mobility, its autonomy and the variety of its means, the aircraft carrier is often the centerpiece of modern combat fleets. Tactically or even strategically, it replaced the battleship in the role of flagship of a fleet. One of its great advantages is that, by sailing in international waters, it does not interfere with any territorial sovereignty and thus obviates the need for overflight authorizations from third party countries, reduce the times and transit distances of aircraft and therefore significantly increase the time of availability on the combat zone. There is no single definition of an "aircraft carrier", and modern navies use several variants of the type. These variants are sometimes categorized as sub-types of aircraft carriers, and sometimes as distinct types of naval aviation-capable ships. Aircraft carriers may be classified according to the type of aircraft they carry and their operational assignments. Admiral Sir Mark Stanhope, RN, former First Sea Lord (head) of the Royal Navy, has said, "To put it simply, countries that aspire to strategic international influence have aircraft carriers." Henry Kissinger, while United States Secretary of State, also said: "An aircraft carrier is 100,000 tons of diplomacy". As of October 2018, there are 41 active aircraft carriers in the world operated by thirteen navies.

The Air Force and DARPA are now testing new hardware and software configured to enable 4th-Generation aircraft to command drones from the cockpit in the air, bringing new levels of autonomy, more attack options and a host of new reconnaissance advantages to air Battle. Working with BAE Systems at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., Air Force test pilots are combing ground-based simulators with airborne leer jets to demonstrate how 4th generation cockpit avionics can direct drones from the air, BAE Systems developers said. “The airplane was structurally configured to allow us to take our autonomy hardware and connect it directly to the flight control system of the airplane,” Skip Stolz, Director of Strategic Development for Autonomy Control, told Warrior Maven in an interview. Demonstrations with specially configured leer jets are intended as an interim step on route to integrating this kind of system into an operational F-15, F-16 or even F-35, developers said.

But even incremental development and improvement will mean that both the M1A2 SEPv.3 and the Bradley will remain potent machines. For example, the Army is currently working on developing new features such the Modular Active Protection Systems (MAPS), which will help improve both machines’ defenses against incoming missiles. Whether the Army’s incremental approach will be sufficient to keep pace with Russian and Chinese developments is yet to be seen—but in the current budgetary environment, it’s the best the Army can do.

http://www.IGuardCalifornia.com for enlistment information. Leon Panetta Removes Military Ban, Opening Front-Line Positions By Lolita Baldor, — The Pentagon is lifting its ban on women serving in combat, opening hundreds of thousands of front-line positions and potentially elite commando jobs after generations of limits on their service, defense officials said Wednesday. The changes, set to be announced Thursday by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, will not happen overnight. The services must now develop plans for allowing women to seek the combat positions, a senior military official said. Some jobs may open as soon as this year, while assessments for others, such as special operations forces, including Navy SEALS and the Army's Delta Force, may take longer. The services will have until January 2016 to make a case to that some positions should remain closed to women. The groundbreaking move recommended by the Joint Chiefs of Staff overturns a 1994 rule prohibiting women from being assigned to smaller ground combat units. There long has been opposition to putting women in combat, based on questions of whether they have the necessary strength and stamina for certain jobs, or whether their presence might hurt unit cohesion. But as news of Panetta's expected order got out, members of Congress, including the Senate Armed Services Committee chairman, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., announced their support. "It reflects the reality of 21st century military operations," Levin said. Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, who will be the top Republican on the Armed Services panel, said, however, that he does not believe this will be a broad opening of combat roles for women because there are practical barriers that have to be overcome in order to protect the safety and privacy of all members of the military. Panetta's move comes in his final weeks as Pentagon chief and just days after President Barack Obama's inaugural speech in which he spoke passionately about equal rights for all. The new order expands the department's action of nearly a year ago to open about 14,500 combat positions to women, nearly all of them in the Army. Panetta's decision could open more than 230,000 jobs, many in Army and Marine infantry units, to women.

Watch This Crazy Video Of Turkey's Defense Industry now surpasses Israel and America's (Thumbnail : Foto Ilustration) Turkish defense industry makes strong start in 2018 In 2018, the defense industry has started offering new products for security forces. The defense and aerospace sector has also experienced an increase in export performance. Main and sub-contractors operating in the defense industry continue to add new products to their activities with regard to contracts signed with procurement authorities. Thus, Turkey has moved its capabilities in the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platform to a new level. The first UAV system capable of autonomous flight and navigation in night and day conditions beyond the sight line with satellite control has been made available to the Turkish Air Force. The ANKA-S system, consisting of two aircraft and related equipment, took its place in the inventory as one of the most competent systems in its class as safety and operational capability with national flight control computer, national air control computer and national friend/hostile recognition systems. ANKA-S will contribute to security forces for intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance purposes. The T129 ATAK Attack and Tactical Reconnaissance Helicopter, which was developed to meet Turkish Armed Forces' (TSK) needs for offensive and tactical reconnaissance helicopters, continues to increase in the inventory. This year, two helicopters were added to the inventory of ATAK helicopters, which numbered 27 last year. Following the autonomous tactical striking fixed wing drone (ALPAGU), the autonomous rotating-wing striking drone (KARGU) has started joining the inventory. KARGU was delivered to the Special Forces Command and the Naval Forces Command to increase the instant target detection, tracking and destruction capabilities of security forces. Within the scope of the 35 millimeter Air Defense Systems Modernization and Airburst Ammunition Supply Project contract, an important milestone for Turkey's target of layered air defense system, the mass production of air defense artillery system, which proved its effectiveness against air-to-ground missiles and earned the title "Missile Hunter," has started. The systems produced will be delivered to the Land Forces and Air Forces command. With the Modernization Towed Air Defense Guns, guns in the inventory of the TSK will be able to fire airburst ammunition that plays an important role in raising the effectiveness against weather threats to the desired level. Airburst ammunition will significantly increase the effectiveness of air defense systems. The need to increase efficiency levels in barreled weapon systems against the rapidly increasing number of navigational missiles, air-to-ground missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles and similar air threats has brought up the issue of using a new generation of programmable airburst ammunition.

Designing a conflict termination strategy is an essential but often overlooked component of warfighting. Improperly planned or incorrectly implemented, a failure to effectively terminate a conflict will leave open the original issues that brought on the war and likely create the conditions for future conflict. For more information about this event, visit: http://www.usip.org/events/ending-wars-build-peace The famous British military theorist, B.H. Liddell-Hart, observed after World War I that the logical conclusion of any war is peace. In his 1976 commentary to Clausewitz's On War Bernard Brodie wrote "… war in all its phases must be rationally guided by meaningful political purposes." In the last century the United States has fought many wars and not one has resulted in its intended outcome or the establishment of a peaceful world order, but in reality has left us to deal with many unintended consequences. The U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP), U.S. Military Academy's Center for the Study of Civil-Military Operations and RAND Corporation hosted an event July 14th that featured notable experts who shared their observations and concerns about the issue of war termination, its planning, transition and challenges. The experts included: Gideon Rose Author How Wars End Lieutenant General Robert Caslen Superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy Ambassador Jim Jeffrey Former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq The Honorable James Kunder Former Deputy Administrator, U.S. Agency for International Development Lieutenant General Mark Milley Commander, U.S. Army III Corps Dr. Rick Brennan Senior Political Scientist, RAND Tara Sonenshine, moderator Distinguished Fellow, George Washington University

Towards a World War III Scenario? The Role of Israel in Triggering an Attack on Iran Part II The Military Road Map by Michel Chossudovsky ------------- http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=20584 -------------- "Theater Iran Near Term" Code named by US military planners as TIRANNT, "Theater Iran Near Term", simulations of an attack on Iran were initiated in May 2003 "when modelers and intelligence specialists pulled together the data needed for theater-level (meaning large-scale) scenario analysis for Iran." ( (William Arkin, Washington Post, 16 April 2006). The scenarios identified several thousand targets inside Iran as part of a "Shock and Awe" Blitzkrieg: "The analysis, called TIRANNT, for "Theater Iran Near Term," was coupled with a mock scenario for a Marine Corps invasion and a simulation of the Iranian missile force. U.S. and British planners conducted a Caspian Sea war game around the same time. And Bush directed the U.S. Strategic Command to draw up a global strike war plan for an attack against Iranian weapons of mass destruction. All of this will ultimately feed into a new war plan for "major combat operations" against Iran that military sources confirm now [April 2006] exists in draft form. ... Under TIRANNT, Army and U.S. Central Command planners have been examining both near-term and out-year scenarios for war with Iran, including all aspects of a major combat operation, from mobilization and deployment of forces through postwar stability operations after regime change." (William Arkin, Washington Post, 16 April 2006) Different "theater scenarios" for an all out attack on Iran had been contemplated: "The US army, navy, air force and marines have all prepared battle plans and spent four years building bases and training for "Operation Iranian Freedom". Admiral Fallon, the new head of US Central Command, has inherited computerized plans under the name TIRANNT (Theatre Iran Near Term)." (New Statesman, February 19, 2007) In 2004, drawing upon the initial war scenarios under TIRANNT, Vice President Dick Cheney instructed USSTRATCOM to draw up a "contingency plan" of a large scale military operation directed against Iran "to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States" on the presumption that the government in Tehran would be behind the terrorist plot. The plan included the pre-emptive use of nuclear weapons against a non-nuclear state: "The plan includes a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons. Within Iran there are more than 450 major strategic targets, including numerous suspected nuclear-weapons-program development sites. Many of the targets are hardened or are deep underground and could not be taken out by conventional weapons, hence the nuclear option. As in the case of Iraq, the response is not conditional on Iran actually being involved in the act of terrorism directed against the United States. Several senior Air Force officers involved in the planning are reportedly appalled at the implications of what they are doing—that Iran is being set up for an unprovoked nuclear attack—but no one is prepared to damage his career by posing any objections." (Philip Giraldi, Deep Background,The American Conservative August 2005) The Military Road Map: "First Iraq, then Iran" The decision to target Iran under TIRANNT was part of the broader process of military planning and sequencing of military operations. Already under the Clinton administration, US Central Command (USCENTCOM) had formulated "in war theater plans" to invade first Iraq and then Iran. Access to Middle East oil was the stated strategic objective: The Role of Israel There has been much debate regarding the role of Israel in initiating an attack against Iran. Israel is part of a military alliance. Tel Aviv is not a prime mover. It does not have a separate and distinct military agenda. Israel is integrated into the "war plan for major combat operations" against Iran formulated in 2006 by US Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM). In the context of large scale military operations, an uncoordinated unilateral military action by one coalition partner, namely Israel, is from a military and strategic point almost an impossibility. Israel is a de facto member of NATO. Any action by Israel would require a "green light" from Washington. An attack by Israel could, however, be used as "the trigger mechanism" which would unleash an all out war against Iran, as well retaliation by Iran directed against Israel.
