Explosives Hidden in Furniture And Building
Forward Operating Base Kalsu, Iraq
An airborne dropped weapon destroyed a known safe house for insurgents in Arab Jabour December 4th.
Soldiers from Fort Stewart Ga coordinated the attack. and intelligence provided by members of a Concerned Local Citizens group (CLC) from that area. The munitions were provided courtesy of two direct attack bombs delivered by an Air Force Falcon F-16 jet.
First Battalion, Thirty Infantry Regiment, and 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry based in Georgia, provided soldiers in the joint effort. The attack began with the intelligence provided on the ground from a daylight recon trip provided by the CLC group.
Salah Mubarak, who worked with U.S. Forces to perform the mission, heads the CLC citizen group. “We went forward with the mission working closely with the CLC forces” said Captain Eric Melloh.
Captain Melloh is Company A, 1-30th Infantry Regiment Commander.
Local Citizens grew tired of the repeated attacks and violence and vowed to take action. Mubarak’s cousin, a member of the CLC group, drew together and planned the mission with the guidance of Coalition Forces.
Captain Melloh made sure the CLC group were supplied with digital cameras, and the group went in and took extensive pictures of the area before the raid took place. During the raid explosives were found packed in various pieces of furniture, and IED devices and pressure plate triggers were scattered throughout the building
“The CLC group was well aware that the Insurgents use booby traps and explosives, they were very careful, and did an excellent job gathering the intelligence needed for the strike.” Said Captain Melloh.
Thanks, makes me feel better. Glad to know even with Obama in office at least our Military will still protect us.
Funny, I just got done reading a report that states North Korea is no push over by any means and has the capacity to engage the US in total warfare.
I have confidence in our armed forces, but why are we downplaying a formidable foe? The worst thing we can do at this point is underestimate our enemies, are we prepared for the ramifications of another armed conflict with North Korea? They aren’t weak, they aren’t unprepared, and they are ready for war; they have been since the Armistice.
If s*** hits the fan, is the Unites States ready for a full-scale war with a powerful enemy?
I analyze the strength of the Alliance between South Korean troops with the United States will be able to resolve the North Korean military forces. North Korean military and nuclear weapons that claim they already have, it is not as strong as we imagine.
Military attacks by South Korea and the United States directly to military targets in North Korea will become a reality, as it did against Saddam Hussein in the Iraq War. North Korean government in power now will be overthrown, tried for crimes committed, and Korea to be reunited into one nation as it was before the Korean war. Air traffic operations and bombardments are a direct attack to the capital of Pyongyang may be advisable to be done, and doing propaganda for the army commanders who served in the North Korean border posts to not hinder efforts in this Korean unification of military operations. Nuclear strength may not have the opportunity to use, if efforts to overthrow the power to take place quickly, and awaken the North Korean Army that the use of weapons of mass destruction is a crime against humanity and it is not necessary.
Combine the two Korean states now, toward a new era of prosperity with the two people. it can not be done if there is still North Korea’s government now in power.
The last attack made North Korea against South Korean territory, it is a way to support the North Korean diplomacy, and pressing the other party to obey their wishes. Is it to negotiate a bargain on economic assistance or the other. incident after incident will continue to happen, there will be no peace on the Korean border. The longer allowed and tolerated, will increasingly powerful government north korea. because the aid was not for the people, but to build their military strength.
The sooner North Korea were attacked, the better and the problem resolved quickly. by reading the posts above about the ability to intercept a missile by U.S. forces, this is an advantage that the U.S. military have. The deployment of troops for so long on the Korean peninsula, and the joint war exercises that too very frequently, causing a very large cost. Attacks on north korea to be done, because Russia and China now are busy with their own domestic problems. North Korea against U.S. and South Korea alone now, and nothing that might help directly by providing military assistance, such as the Korean war in the past.
Admiral jhon wayne says
The military may use to attack with the bombing strategy to accurately and precisely at the location of vital military and administrative center of north korea. With air traffic followed by an attack by special forces. especially on military installations in areas where the nuclear positions and their cruise missiles are located. Strategy in the Iraq war can be done by making improvements in several stages of operation, and done more carefully and minimize the risk of error that may be conducted in a military strike against North Korea later.
Colonel Santiago says
U.S. Army not only protect the American people, but we’re going to attack north korea and overthrow the ruling regime, so that the incident is not repeated military attacks and nuclear threats disappear. we are just waiting for the right time to attack, no longer.
