  • U.S. Military Testing Human and Robot Combat Squads - Why send in thousands of troops to get bogged down in the sand, get shot at and lose their lives when robots could do it better?  That is exactly the question the Pentagon is asking its military these days.  The pentagon wants to incorporate robot squad members to regular combat squads. And that testing has officially began. Some of these robots are more like autonomous tracked vehicles while some have legs that walk.  But all will serve very important purposes.  In the video we will all witness what it would be like to be an enemy holding a beach line when a full land invasion lands to take the beach without a heart beat to stop. The pentagon still doesn’t trust the technology to its fullest extent just yet because who would want a robot next to you making its own “decisions” about who it should kill or who it shouldn’t.  That is still too far away to determine how the military will work those kinks out.  As of now these robots are used in support features like checking out a roadside bomb or a suspicious package.  But why stop there the Pentagon keeps pressing? Robots are usually used when [...]
  • Video: US Military is Testing Nuclear Capable Minuteman Missiles - Two nuclear capable Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles have been tested by the United States military in a week.  This is extremely notable because the range on this missile system is approximately 8,100 miles. Yes, that puts this missile withing range of the capitol of North Korea, Pyongyang.  This is no coincidence with the inflammatory rhetoric that is coming from the North Korean regime. History of Minuteman Missiles  (LGM-30) The Minuteman ballistic missiles have been in the U.S. arsenal since about the mid 1960’s because of the nuclear threats coming from Russia at the time (Cold War). Range= about 8,100 miles Speed= approximate 15,000 mile per hour Carries up to 3 nuclear warheads (Upgraded in 1970 from one missile to 3) Land based and designed for Russian nuclear threat deterrence Entered military service in 1962 Planned to be in service until 2030 Approximately 450 in service and ready to fire today  (Down from 1,000 in 1970) This time it seems that the target of these missiles has a different one than Russia.  With Kim Jong-un in North Korea always threatening nuclear strikes ion U.S. forces, the mainland and her allies, the United States military is keen to keep these land [...]
  • Video: S. Korea and U.S. Forces in Intense Live Fire Training - In this video we see the South Korean terrain that has been selected as the best suited to match the terrain of that in North Korea.  Yes, these troops are training with the nuclear strike threatening North Korean regime just to their north for that specific reason. This just shows the intense and realistic training the U.S. soldiers and their allies are always reviving to stay in tip top shape and maintain their skills. You will see in the beginning small unit tactics and how they use base of fires to suppress an enemy “machine gun” location while squads move to the flanks and assault the enemy position.  The squad leader has experience because the entire time he was looking for his men and making sure they are understanding and defeating what is in front of them, while leading them to their correct phases at the correct times. That phase of the training was for offensive and small unit tactics on taking over an enemy position with team tactics. The second phase when Javelin missile systems were starting to be used is for after the simulated attack on North Korean soil.  The training exercise shifted to the where enemy is now [...]
  • 2 Videos: Battle Damage Assessment of the MOAB Strike - It is finally here.  The battle damage assesment video from MOAB or “mother of all bombs” that was dropped in Afghanistan in mid April 2017.  The MOAB actually stands for Massive Air Blast bomb.  The air blast is why this bomb is so destructive without the need for a nuclear warhead. In the raw filmed video hosted by Fox News shows the level of destruction the air blast bomb can cause.  In the video you can see the heat that was dispersed through the area with the burnt and ripped up trees near the explosion point. The reason why this bomb is so destructive is because it explodes without hitting the ground.  That air burst doesn’t let much of the explosive energy into the ground but instead directs all the energy around the blast area causing severe damage and destruction to anything nearby. ISIS-K was the recipient of this strike, and they are the new ISIS front that has reached Afghanistan.  The Korosan group is the ISIS splinter cell that has established a new front inside Afghanistan, also known as ISIS-K. The first video is the bomb strike itself.  Filmed in thermal imagery, we all can witness the intense heat that [...]
  • Video: Japan Warship Defending Supply Ship for Carrier Strike Group Near N. Korea - With the arrival of the USS Carl Vinson led carrier strike group off the coast of North Korea, the strike group is in need of a supply run.  The United States Navy boasts an impressive amount of war capable ships in the Vinson Strike Group, but those warships have been tasked with watching the North Korean territory for missile launches and to gather as much intelligence as possible.  As well as being a very noticeable and sizable deterrent to the regime of Kim Jong-un in the North.   With most of the defense capable ships in the USS Vinson strike group busy keeping an eye on North Korea, there is not much resources for the defense of supply ships carrying fuel, food and ammunition to the front line of warships.  The once enemy of Japan is no longer an enemy of the United States but is actually one of their greatest and strongest allies.  This story is proof even further to that above statement. Japan has dispatched its largest warship off its coast to assist a U.S. Navy supply ship make supply runs to and from the strike group safely.  This is huge step for Japan because this is the [...]
  • Video: THAAD and the North Korean Threat - The threats, rhetoric and propaganda coming from the DPRK (North Korea) are hard to ignore.  President Trump and his administration have said that turning a blind eye to the North Korea nuclear threat is now over and has been positioning military forces and a carrier strike group in the region. The U.S. commander of U.S. Pacific Command, Admiral Harry B. Harris Jr. said “There is some doubt within the intelligence community whether Kim Jong Un has that capability today or whether he will soon, but I have to assume he has it, the capability is real, and that he’s moving towards it”. Admiral Harris Jr. said that speaking in front of all 100 United States Senators that were all invited by President Trump to listen to the threats being posed by North Korea.  Which, the meeting at the white house where all of the Senators were present is history in its self. How does the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile system fit into this conflict? “His Rhetoric is going in one direction and his capabilities are approaching the lines of his rhetoric,” Admiral Harris said speaking to the 100 Senators about the North’s leader Kim Jong Un.  This [...]
  • Video: Israel Bombs Iran,Syria and Hezbollah Weapons Transfer Near Damascus - In the early morning hours today loud explosions were heard emanating from the capitol of Syria, Damascus.  Social media and news channels in the local areas have reported that this was an Israeli airstrike that hit a Hezbollah arms depot. “I can confirm that the incident in Syria completely conforms to Israel’s policy, to act so as to prevent the smuggling of advanced weapons from Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon by Iran,” said Israeli intelligence minister Yisrael Katz.  Meaning the Israeli intelligence is neither confirming or denying that this was in fact an Israeli air strike. #Syria #Damascus Footage of the Explosions after a #Israel #Israeli Air Strike @ Damascus International Airport Area. pic.twitter.com/cvS2YLzAIj — Ivan Sidorenko (@IvanSidorenko1) April 27, 2017 Strikes like this are usually attributed to Israel because it is no secret that Hezbollah (their slogan is death to Israel) has been receiving new advanced rockets and ballistic missiles from the governments of both Syria and Iran.  All of those missiles have a target, and that target is and always will be Israel.  Therefore, thinking logically, Israel would be at a even greater threat if these missile transfers go on without an airstrikes destroying as many of them [...]
  • Video: What is a Tomahawk Missile? - With the whole world watching the events in Syria and how the U.S. military took an entire Syrian air base off the map with 59 tomahawk cruise missiles, there is a bet going that there are many people out there that have no idea what a tomahawk cruise missile even is.  Conflict Daily is about to answer that for you. In this video you will see some testing of the Tomahawk missile with a F/A-18 fighter aircraft chasing the missile to film the results.   So, what is a Tomahawk missile?  The Tomahawk is a long range and all weather missile that can be launched from land, sea (war ships), and underwater (Submarines).  It flies at subsonic (slower than sound) speeds but stays very low to the ground at an attempt to avoid radars of foreign and enemy nations. Originally the missile was built by the U.S. defense contractor McDonnell Douglas in the 1970’s but now is being produced by the defense contractor Raytheon.  Raytheon now builds these missiles with a lot of improvements built in that improve the speed range and accuracy which in turn increases the lethality of the 1970’s missile.  Bringing it more in line with missiles [...]
  • Video: U.S. Launches 59 Cruise Missiles at Syria Air Base - 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles were fired into Syria at about 0440 Syrian local time.  The target?  The Syrian air base that was the starting location of the jets that dropped chemical weapons just a few days earlier.  This is the first time the U.S. has struck Syrian government forces and acknowledged it. Map of the Syrian War President Trump, announced that it is in the national interests of the United States to prevent governments from using chemical weapons and to deter future acts of this nature.  With the standing of the United States’s word when it comes to military action has finally been restored other countries both enemy and allied to the U.S. will be better and more responsible partners because they know for sure the U.S. will act if needed. Catastrophically, former President Obama had a very similar situation under his watch in 2013 and also promised military strikes if chemical weapons were used.  When chemical weapons were used and the American administration did nothing, the whole world was looking at the U.S. wondering what happened to that promise and severely lost and damaged some of its credibility on the international stage. “Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s [...]
  • Video: An Afghanistan RC South Tour - This video is from Afghanistan in 2010 and 2011, and is a gathering of many videos from Alpha company, 2nd Brigade Combat Team (BCT), 101 Airborne Division Air Assault.  For operational security and to prevent any enemy of the U.S. military from using this video effectively, ConflictDaily.com will not use accurate dates, or names while commentating on this video These men arrived in Afghanistan in the Spring of 2010 and did not stop fighting, dropping bombs, killing Taliban until the summer of 2011.  This company went through quite a bit in their tour of the Taliban infested southern Afghanistan(RC South). Theses boys arrived in the spring of 2010 to an area of Afghanistan that was understood to not have been patrolled by U.S. coalition forces since 2002.  Knowing those facts they expected to see a lot of fighting and that they did.  It was less than 72 hours after they had air assaulted to their small combat outpost (COP) that they already began to receive fire from multiple directions.  That day ended with twelve 155 Howitzer rounds and a 500 pound bomb striking enemy positions that were less than 150 meters (yards) away.  That set the tone. When the 101st went to [...]
