For those who only know FFL... "regular" army has been engaged in large numbers in all french operations since forever. Actually, most of the troops posted in Africa are Marines troops aka "Colonials". Their historical mission is to deploy.

I thought it was ONLY FFL in Mali right now? Hmm.. Surprises me to see the French actually commit their regular forces to a fight.

These are what the Legion would call "Schlapores", a slang name for regular French army. Derived from a German nickname for a dog with floppy ears, because some French army units have humongous berets. Doubtless some of the units currently serving in Mali were previously stationed in Chad as it is a logical stepping point strategically. Units of the legion do regular company sized rotations in 4 month increments in Chad splitting their time between N'Djemena and Abeche. But so do the French regulars. Its an on going operation called "Epervier".

Phony Navy SEAL of the Week ABC Reporter BOBBY HALLMARK JR. from Texas. Fake SEAL and Vietnam Vet Retired Navy SEAL Don Shipley BUSTS Phony Navy SEAL of the Week and ABC News Reporter BOBBY HALLMARK JR. from Longview, Texas. Bob has endless claims of being a Navy SEAL Vietnam Vet and he is neither... http://www.kltv.com/ His latest claims, after being exposed, are that he was "Vietnam Era" and he wasn't even that much less a Navy SEAL... The Fall of Saigon occurred on April 29th, 1975. The National Defense Service Medal for Vietnam even stopped being issued on August 14, 1974. President Gerald R. Ford announced on May 7, 1975 that the Vietnam Era had ENDED... And Bob joined the navy on April 11th, 1977... I found several references to Bob being a Navy SEAL in the attached link and several "spin offs" of the original article online. http://www.searchingforbigfoot.com/Pa... A reporter from ABC / CNN came out to meet us. His name is Bob Hallmark, as it turns out, Bob is an ex Navy Seal.... Actually from the original UDT. Bob first claimed to me he served in 1975 and not 1972 as the news video showed. Confronted again, Bob changed that to 1977. Bob served for three years and should have been proud of that instead of embellishing his service... http://vvaveteran.org/33-3/33-3_notes... http://www.kilgorenewsherald.com/news... http://www.kltv.com/story/3055674/fou...

South Korea has developed an automated, turret-based weapon platform capable of locking onto a human target three kilometers away. Tara Cleary reports. It's called the Super Aegis 2 and its one of the most advanced weapons systems ever built. Billed by its manufacturers DoDaam of South Korea as a "Total Security Solution", the Super Aegis is an automated turret system that supports a variety of weapons, from a standard machine-gun to a surface-to-air missile. It is designed to repel an attacker from up to 3 kilometres away, using sophisticated thermal imaging software and camera systems to lock onto a human-sized target even in the dead of night. The system requires no human presence. It's all operated robotically from a distant control room. DoDaam Systems Vice-President Park Sung-ho says the high-tech weapon could become an integral component in South Korea's ongoing military face-off with North Korea across the heavily armed Demilitarised Zone.
