High velocity projectiles, non-nuclear EMP-Fuel air explosives and Hyper-sonic bunker busters. This is a detailed timeline of all those groundbreaking developments in military affairs and their implementation in recent hybrid wars in the Middle East by the newly formed strategic special forces detachments.
The new weapons depend on high speed and shock waves. Israeli scientists were looking for a way to send objects into orbit by firing them from enormous cannons. In 1990, the Rafael Ballistic Center in Haifa created a stable explosively formed hyper velocity projectile (EFHVP) that traveled 26,844 miles per hour (43,201 kilometers per hour) or Mach 35.
Then in 1997, the book Ram Accelerators: Proceedings of the Third International Workshop on Ram, edited by Kazuyoshi Takayama and Akihiro Sasoh (Berlin and Heidelberg: Springer Verlag, 1997), reported this on page 167.
“Rom” is Professor Josef Rom, Department of Aerospace Engineering, Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa.
So, by 1997 Israel had developed technology for hypersonic projectiles and gaseous chemical propellants that could double as fuel-air explosives (FAE). However, Israel lacked the money to produce the weapons on a large scale.
Former enemy eyes Israeli technology
Saudi Arabia is very secretive about its military capabilities. By 2003, Saudi Crown Prince and Defense Minister Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al Saud was too ill to carry out his duties. Prince Sultan always insisted that Saudi Arabia should create its own manufacturing base in order to be self-sufficient, but he was a flawed man who lacked the iron discipline and willpower that a reformer needs. I believe that Deputy Defense Minister Abdul Rahman bin Abdulaziz took over as defense minister, and he began instilling an ethos of altruism and excellence in the Saudi armed forces.
Abdul Rahman bin Abdulaziz is a graduate of the California Military Academy. My guess is that he was aided in his reforms by Assistant Minister of Defense and Aviation and General Inspector for Military Affairs Khaled bin Sultan, who graduated from the British Sandhurst Military Academy and the US Air Force Air War College and studied at the US Army Command and General Staff College.
Supporting these stealth reforms was the powerful Governor of Riyadh, Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud—the current king of Saudi Arabia. For fifty years, he secretly worked on plans to transform his country.
Israeli efforts get help
Saudi Arabia gave Israel crucial military intelligence during the Second Lebanon War of 2006. I remember reading that at the time, but then the world moved on to more important things.
By late 2007, Israel was selling advanced arms to Arab League nations.
The British report, covering the years 2008-12, listed India, Singapore, Turkey, Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, Sweden, Portugal, United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Colombia, Holland, Italy, Germany, Spain, Thailand, Macedonia, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Switzerland, Ecuador, Mexico, Finland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Equatorial Guinea, Poland, Argentina and Egypt as Israeli customers. Even countries that have no official relations with Israel appeared on the list: Pakistan, Algeria, the United Arab Emirates and Morocco.
It’s clear to me that Israel and the Arab League made peace before 2006 and then became allies by 2007.
Sometime during this period the Gulf Cooperation Council began funding the development of the new weapons.
Israeli and Arab League power
Below is the first major demonstration of new Israeli Arab League technology. Faj Attan, Yemen, April 20, 2015. Hitler’s birthday.
The cameraman was 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers) from the explosion, but the shock wave knocked him over. I eventually determined that this had to be the high-velocity penetrating weapon (HVPW).
The HVPW uses hypersonic speed and fuel-air explosives to create the most powerful shock waves of any munition ever built.
Shock waves from fuel-air explosives can be directed. They can be aimed. There are many patents for devices that do this.
The Yemen explosion was filmed by over twenty cameras, indicating that prior warning was given. Despite the immense shock wave, no deaths or injuries were initially reported. Only later did the Houthis claim that civilians were killed. It’s a lie.
Israeli Arab League weapons mean new soldiers
Retired Israeli Brigadier General Gal Hirsh wrote about the Second Revolution in Military Affairs.
Thus far, special operations forces were committed to battle in order to support the primary maneuver, fill gaps and execute strategic missions. According to the new concept, they will constitute the primary maneuvering element, bringing to bear many of the capabilities of the “standard” military, and even more.
A substantial change will be required with regard to the operational manifestation of the modes of battle, operational doctrines and combat techniques. New operational patterns will have to be created. These will be flexible, creative and technology-intensive, and the maneuvers of the specialist forces will include commando operations on a large scale.
These new strategic special forces are called “C6ISR units”: Command, Control, Communications, Computing, Cyber, Commando, Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance. We don’t know about Israeli or most Arab League C6ISR units, but the United Arab Emirates Presidential Guard and the Egyptian Rapid Deployment Forces are the model.
Each C6ISR unit has all the elements of the armed forces in one group of about 1000 men. They’re probably organized something like this.
There are naval, riverine, and submarine elements as well, but it’s impossible to identify them. Many of these units trained in the American Southwest in the summer of 2015. At least four massive exercises were held, confirmed to me by four independent eyewitnesses. My brother Tim took a photo of troops being flown to Edwards Air Force Base on an Air France Airbus A380.
The Arab League went far beyond the concept of one battalion being able to perform as a mini-army. Arab strategic special forces can operate as one-man armies, since they’re so highly trained. Some soldiers have as many as nine or ten qualification badges.
An operator of this caliber can function entirely alone in the field, in communication with aircraft, long-distance artillery, and assault units.
One such soldier can also serve as a combat adviser who allows each local unit to integrate into the operation being led by professional commandos. We see multiple videos of one tall, lanky, black special operator attached to local units in Syria.
A lone operator can be a hunter-killer, using the new miniature unmanned aerial vehicles that are completely unknown to the scientific and engineering world.
Below, watch the space above the man’s head as something flies from left to right.
These must be autonomous. They’re set free by the strategic special operator, and they conduct reconnaissance, film target areas, and also kill terrorists without hurting anyone nearby.
Below is the video that made me realize that new weapons are being widely used in Syria.
The missile fired is the American BGM-71 TOW. It has a high-explosive antitank (HEAT) warhead that would turn a human being into chopped meat and pink mist. But the soldier behind the tent gets up and walks away.
The only possible way that the man survived is that the missile had a fuel-air explosive (FAE) warhead, and the shock wave was directed upward and to the sides. We’ve seen that Israel began researching massively powerful gaseous explosives in the 1990s; there are patents for the devices that direct the force of FAE; and the American TOW missile has no known FAE variant.
Therefore this missile must be in the hands of professional soldiers, not rebels. There’s absolutely no way that Israel would send troops into Syria. The soldiers using the new weapons must be from the Arab League and its Muslim allies. In 2015 a dozen Muslim nations sent battalion-sized units of special forces to Saudi Arabia. They disappeared.
I’m positive that after intensive training, they went to Syria and Iraq. This video of Jaysh al-Thuwar shows exceptionally proficient soldiers using FAE in close combat.
The new weapons produce no flying steel fragments and can therefore be used in urban warfare.
Jaysh al-Thuwar is mostly Arab League commandos. They never lose a single battle.
Israeli ingenuity, Arab skill
Many of the combat videos coming out of Syria show strange distortions of the digital imagery.
I did a patent search, and I found the answer: a munition with two warheads. One warhead produces nonnuclear electromagnetic pulses (EMPs), and the other is a fuel-air explosive warhead. I use the term “EMPFAE ordnance.”
This is absolute genius. The EMPs will destroy all of the enemy’s equipment that contains electronics: cell phones, radios, computers, tablets, cameras, range finders, motion detectors, night-vision goggles, surveillance sensors, cars, trucks, armored vehicles, and aircraft.
And the FAE causes zero collateral damage.
The shock wave contains the explosive force of the enemy munitions, and the heat incinerates the explosives, preventing their detonation.
As for the hypersonic rockets, we have two videos of them being used on Islamic State truck bombs. The first took place in Syria. You hear two sonic booms, one at 0:22 and the other at 0:27.
The camera operator carefully avoided filming the rockets, but you see smoke and debris traveling far to the left.
In the next video—filmed in Iraq—the rocket hits the truck bomb at 0:06.
Through the film speed of 24 frames per second and the flight time of the 9M133 Kornet antitank guided missile, I was able to calculate that the rocket flew at 13,979 miles per hour (22,497 kilometers per hour) or Mach 18. At such speeds, an explosive warhead would be unnecessary.
There are other weapons that I won’t discuss. They were designed to save the lives of both civilians and combatants. This will reduce the ability of terrorist groups and state sponsors of terrorism to recruit. The Orlando mass murderer claimed that he committed his crime in retaliation for the US bombing of innocent women and children in Syria.
Nobody believes that. He simply wanted to murder people.
But the new war-fighting methods pioneered by Israel and the Arab League are steadily depriving terrorists of material for propaganda. I support Israel and the Arab League because they’re improving the region. In less than five years, the Iranians and Lebanese will be free, and they will be welcomed into the new Middle East.
Shia generals in Iraq now have Saudi bodyguards that everyone accepts.
Never in my wildest dreams did I anticipate that. As a westerner, I bought into the stereotypes. Now I know that literally anything is possible. Anything good, I mean.
I was sure that devastating wars would be required to end the reign of the Iranian mullahs and Hezbollah. Well, Israel and the Arab League are fifty years ahead of the rest of the world in terms of weaponry. Arab League commandos are the most skilled soldiers in human history.
The mullahs and Hezbollah will be removed from power, but the toll on civilians will be almost nonexistent. I have no doubt whatsoever.
