During World War II the M18 Hellcat was the tank used by the Americans to destroy the enemies and a defense against their foes. This armored fighting vehicle has speed up to 60 mph for the reason that the armor is paper thin or not more than 1" thick. It was the fastest tank destroyer in the time of World War II. The enemies were not able to attack the Hellcat troops easily because of the high speed of the tank.
On Thursday, North Korean government sent a message to South Korea indicating that they will attack the neighboring country to express objection on the private command this week in Seoul. The message warned that North Korea will strike if the inhabitants of Seoul continue to insult North Korean highest dignity. There are 28,500 American soldiers deployed in South Korea. The militants and activists burned flag and effigies of the country's leaders during the second death anniversary of former North Korean Leader, Kim Jong Il earlier this week. These protests are common throughout the festivals and anniversaries in North Korea. Kim Min-seok, the spokesman for South Korea's Ministry of National Defense sent a reply through wired message and in the fax message he said "we warned that if North Korea is to carry out provocation, we will firmly retaliate." He added that there have been no substantial military movements in North Korea. The death of Jang Song Thaek this month, who was the powerful uncle and advisor of North Korea's present leader, Kim Jong Un upset North Koreans, bringing rumors on the instability of their government.

The ISU-152 self-propelled multirole assault gun was used by the Soviet military forces in the WWII and afterwards till the '70s. It was armored, fully enclosed, self-propelled and served three main purposes in battle. It played a role in a direct fire on fortified attack positions and as a direct weapon against tanks. The 152.4 mm ISU-152 was used as a heavy tank destroyer, self-propelled artillery weapon, and as a primary assault gun. The ammunition used varied from 48.78 kg shell capable of piercing armor to a 43.56 kg high explosive shell. The heaviest ammunition used with the ISU-152 was the 56 kg shell long rage ammunition 53-G-54 which could even pierce concrete. Given its capabilities it was utilized for both tank and infantry support.
In Los Angeles, California an unidentified flying objects were seen over the skies in late February, 1942. Just 3 months after the Pearl Harbor, the US military was keen on identifying the enemy aircraft. It was just a few months after the United States entered the stage of war and so the military launched into an anti-aircraft barrage using artillery. Before this incident in LA, a Santa Barbara production facility was fired upon by a Japanese I-17 submarine. When the unknown flying object was spotted over LA, the ground & naval troops on the West Coast were on high alert. Air raid sirens were turned on and blackouts were ordered. Anti-aircraft shells weighing 12.8 pounds were fired at the unidentified objects by the 37th Coast Artillery Brigade. There was a lot of damage to buildings and there were three fatalities as well-civilians who died of friendly fire. At first, people believed that Japan sent an aerial unit to attack the city. Later it was mostly attributed to "war nerves." The UFOs were determined to be imaginary, or possibly a weather balloon or a blimp. Since the mystery was never solved, others think that it was a psychological warfare technique which the Japanese employed using a fire balloon. There are still a few who believe that the object was extra-terrestrial in origin. What do you think UFO or military tactic?
War on the oceans was changed with the creation of the USS Freedom and the USS Independence with their modern design and technology. Take a look at the tests that the ships had to go through in order to join the Navy. Watch as they go through a simulated attack at high speeds and how they deal with helicopters taking off and landing, to when there's a problem with their electrical systems.
The US created the FGM-148 Javelin as a way to replace the Dragon antitank weapon. It's a weapon that can be carried by a man and then fired at a tank. The way it works is that you can lock on your target before firing and the missile will self guide its way to the target. The missile specifically is used against the top armor of armored vehicle since it is normally much thiner than the other armor. It can also be used to shoot at buildings and go after enemy helicopters. It can go up to a height of five hundred feet when being used in top attack mode and sixty meters when in direct fire mode.
The military force of North Korea is prepared to launch operation and aggression against United States and South Korea after weeks of alleged hostility and provocation. North Korea has repeatedly challenged and intimidated their Southern neighbor and United States, however has yet to attack either of the parties. Tragic consequences may occur warned the North's military spokesman after learning that a group of battle ships including aircraft carrier was deployed to South Korean port. The spokesman also confirmed that all service ready units of the KPA are on an emergency order from its commanding officers and should be ready to attack at any time. Finally, he added that if North Korea is going to attack, US is going to be held accountable. Meanwhile there was no sign of military action in the North said the South Korea's Minister of Defense Kim Kwan-jin on Tuesday. Washington ignored the North's warning. What are your thoughts?
Sadly, the news this morning is not something that anyone would want to wake up to. Two private American citizens were fatalities in a suicide attack in Kabul, Afghanistan. A restaurant in Kabul that is frequented by foreigners was the target of a Taliban suicide bomber and gunmen. Thirteen of the 21 people who lost their lives that day were foreign nationals. Among those who were killed were the IMF's highest level representative in the country and three staff members of the United Nations. The foreigners' bodies were moved to a military base in the capital. A spokeswoman for the British Foreign Office confirmed that two British subjects were killed in the attack. While the struggle between the US and Afghanistan continues as they try to agree on a bilateral agreement, attacks on civilians continue to occur on a daily basis. RIP Sad, don't you think?
On April 15th, 2013 James Costello was at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. He was right near where the explosions occurred with friends from his childhood. Both his arms and legs were burned so badly that they had to use pig skin to help the areas heal. He said on his Facebook wall that even though it was a horrible day for him that it has led to happiness. James proposed to his wife while they were traveling in Europe for survivors of bombings. The two met because of this tragic event, and the trip seemed like the best way to begin their shared life together. James proposed in Lyon, France. aaaaah :). The bombing at the Boston Marathon was a horrible occurrence, but there is still something beautiful that came from it. It goes to show you that not all things in our lives are black and white and that in the end there can be beauty.
A US citizen made the huge blunder of actually becoming a part of al-Qaida. Officials in the US government say that he is part of attack plans targeting American citizens abroad, and therefore he must be taken out. President Obama is going back and forth on whether to simply take him out with drones or not and how to do it in a legal way. Currently the government cannot kill him because he is still a citizen of the United States, but they are currently trying to do it in a legal way. The American traitor is currently located in a country where the United States is not allowed to act militarily. It is Obama's policy that American terrorists that are located overseas can only be taken out by military maneuvers, and not by the intelligence agencies. The citizen is believed to be responsible for the deaths of American citizens abroad and he supposedly keeps on planning attacks and engaging in activities that put American lives in danger. The CIA has said that they think he should be killed, but the American terrorist is in a place where it will be difficult to reach him and kill him. If troops are sent in to take him then they will be risking their lives. It could also cause more problems then by simply taking him out with missiles. Currently it is not publicly known in which country the terrorist is hiding away.
As a response to US ships being in the Gulf, an Iranian Navy officer said that warships are heading toward US water borders, said a Fars news reporting agency. An Iranian admiral is quoted saying that the ships are moving towards the borders as a message to the Americans. Apparently these ships have gone towards the Atlantic by going new South Africa. The United States has increased the amount of Navy vessels they have in the Persian Gulf, so this is a response by Iran. However, there was not a definite report that Iranian ships were actually getting closer to the borders. The United States defense department put out an anonymous statement saying that they doubted that Iranian vessels were actually approaching. America and it's allies regularly do different navy exercises in the Gulf as a way to make sure that the area is free for oil to pass through. Iran sees the Gulf as being part of their boundaries and wants to increase their influence over the area. There have been threats by high up people in Iran saying that if there was any attack that they could block the Strait of Hormuz, thus blocking the oil distribution. Also, if the US was to press too hard into stopping Iran from producing Nuclear weapons then Iran has leverage in stopping the shipment of oil through the strait.
General Hassan Firouzabadi of the Iranian Armed forces sent out a warning to his country's arch-enemies. The Chief of Staff of Iran warned Israel & United States that his country is prepared. According to a report by the Fars News Agency on Wednesday, Iran will retaliate and is ready for a "decisive battle" if attacked. General Firouzabadi was quoted by Fars expressing that they are ready to battle "America and the Zionist regime," pertaining to Israel. The General did not end there. He also warned other countries in the region to not be involved in launching an attack targeting Iran from within their territory. He said that if Iran were attacked from any of the American bases from Middle East, they will strike back. He insisted that Iran has no hostile attitude towards the regional states, but Iran will not take things quietly when provoked. The Americans maintain a few military outposts in some countries within the region including Turkey, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and UAE. Gen. Firouzabadi considers the forceful remarks of John Kerry, the US Secretary of State to be mere political bluff. Secretary Kerry stated that if Iran continues to develop its nuclear capabilities, the US is prepared for a military option. Sec. Kerry added that America will do whatever it takes, however, the Iranian general dismisses this statement as just "hot air." Meanwhile, on Tuesday Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated that America and the West must not entertain delusions of going into military action. Leave a comment below
