About 20 Missouri State University students traveled in November 2008 to the US Department of Defense Humanitarian Demining Training Center at Fort Leonard Wood, to learn about efforts around the world to detect and disable land mines and other ordnance. The students were able to experience how soldiers train to recognize and remove mines. They also met with the commanding officer of the base, who answered questions on topics including international relations, public service, and Army policy. Dr. Kenneth Rutherford led the trip, giving students the opportunity for real-world experience in international issues without leaving the state of Missouri. Students learned to understand the role land mines play in the economy, politics and history of a nation. They said it was worth braving the cold weather and 5am wakeup call. Dr. Rutherford believed the visit would get students thinking about how to make the world a better place.

Source: Vietnamese People's Army Television Text: In July, Vietnam and the U.S. cohosted a 12-day training course on Humanitarian Mine Action for Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Trauma Care. The training was under the cooperation framework to overcome the consequences of unexploded ordnances (UXO) left after the war for the humanitarian purposes between the U.S. and Vietnam. During the training, 13 instructors from the U.S. Pacific Fleet sent key messages to 64 learners from the units under the Vietnamese People's Army: the first person to treat the mine victims is the EOD engineers, not the physicians; health workers should apply new technologies provided by the U.S. for better treatment of their mine victims. U.S. trainer Lete Xier noted "I saw that Vietnamese leaners all have good basic knowledge. With the training cooperation between the U.S. and Vietnam, I believe that the professional skills in explosive ordnance disposal of Vietnamese leaners would be improved. During the training course, we communicated with each other, this helps strengthen our emotion and understanding. We are very happy to come to Vietnam for the training." At the training's closing ceremony, the U.S. handed over to Vietnam a report on the battle history. This is a database of bombing during 1965-1975 period of Indochina. In an exclusive interview with the Vietnamese People's Army Television, U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam David Shear stressed that "We have provided the Vietnamese Army a set of database of U.S. bombings in Vietnam. This is a full, accurate, and comprehensive database. We hope that Vietnam can use this set of database for mine disposal activities. We think that the database will help increase the effectiveness of Vietnam's mine disposal activities, and assist efforts by non-governmental organizations in this field. U.S. and Vietnam are working on an MOU on Explosive Ordnance Disposal. This MOU will further promote the close cooperation, and when this MOU is concluded, we will have stronger cooperation. We look forwards to Vietnam's establishment of a center for mine disposal, and application of standards for mine disposal. This will increase the exchange of information between the U.S. Army and the Vietnamese Army as well as the international non-governmental organizations. That is an essential element for the explosive ordnance disposal activities."

Around ten private military companies have been created in Russia over the last few years. The militants who have previously passed special training in Russian PMCs are often met in the area of ATO. The most famous among them are: ‘RSB-Group‘ – a private company which calls itself a military consulting company. An important detail: the official ‘RSB-Group’ operates in areas with unstable political situation in coordination with the legitimate government of other countries. The military activities in ‘LPR’ and ‘DPR’ fit this formulation easily since the leaders of these entities are recognized representatives of the ‘state government’; ‘Anti-Terror‘ – a group of companies, consisting of a training center, demining squad and several non-governmental organizations of former officers of special forces. The organization specializes in education and training of soldiers for special tasks of different nature in areas with high war risk. The company has the direct support of the FSB, which helped it gain a foothold in the Iraq region; ‘MAR‘ – a private military company that provides a full range of ‘security services’ in areas with high terrorist activities or unstable political situation. It is engaged in training, consulting, intelligence, sales of military goods, etc. In its practice, ‘MAR’ has sent fighters to the ATO zone, ostensibly to ensure the delivery of ‘humanitarian aid’ to ‘DPR’; ‘Moran Security Group‘ – a group of military-oriented companies, which focus on the protection of marine and land cargoes. It has a naval training center in St. Petersburg; ‘Center R‘ (other names – ‘Tiger Top-rent security’ and ‘Redut-Antiterror’) – a typical private military organization, whose experts have participated in the hostilities in Yugoslavia, Caucasus, Iraq and Afghanistan. The company trains sniper (and anti-sniper) specialists, shooters, combat engineers, radio engineers, rapid response fighters in urban environment, and so on. It is likely that the activities of the listed above PMCs have been linked to the war in Ukraine in some way – recruitment, fighters training, or providing support. However, militants from ‘ATK GROUP’, ‘Slavonic Corps Limited’, ‘Vizantiya’ have been met in the area of the ATO, as well as in Syria. In addition to that, PMC with ‘shady reputation’ work in Russia as well. Such companies can be ranked together with terrorist groups. For example, ‘Vagner’ private military company (incorporated in Argentina) poses itself as a closed militarized structure; its training camp is located in the village of Molkino in Krasnodar krai, at the training site of the 10th special forces brigade of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Federation. With high probability we can assume that we observe here the mentioned above mechanism for the creation of voluntary units of Russian GRU’s reservists. https://informnapalm.org/en/russian-private-military-companies-as-licensed-tool-of-terror/

The Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) is a Virginia-based 501(c)3 nonprofit that was formed in 1997 to extend the vision of Nobel Peace Laureate George C. Marshall by alleviating suffering and promoting hope, growth, and stability in war-torn countries. For many nations, a primary obstacle to achieving sustainable progress is the deadly legacy of landmines, the relics of armed conflicts that often ended long ago. Landmines halt agricultural production, impede economic growth, slow the return of refugees, instill fear, and kill and maim innocent citizens on a daily basis, injuring or killing at least one person every 40 minutes.Thus, MLI’s primary mission is to establish practical, affordable, and sustainable indigenous programs to help severely mine-affected countries rid their land of the horrific scourge of landmines and deal with their lasting impacts. This includes the development, expansion, and sustainment of the Mine Detection Dog Partnership Program (MDDPP), which provides Mine Detection Dogs (MDDs) to accelerate the pace of landmine clearance operations; the Survivors’ Assistance program, which helps those who have been injured by landmines; and the Children Against Mines Program (CHAMPS), which promotes global citizenship and involves American youth in meaningful service-learning projects to help children living in war-torn countries who have been injured by landmines. These three programs: 1) provide valuable resources, especially mine detection dogs (MDDs), for landmine clearance; 2) educate citizens about the dangers of mines; 3) train national leaders charged with mine action responsibilities; and 4) assist landmine survivors with physical and psychological needs. MLI provides resources and training to help countries build their own affordable, practical and sustainable humanitarian demining programs.

Various of controlled explosion STORYLINE The United Nations has some hopeful news to report the first International Day for Mine Awareness on Tuesday. They say it will take perhaps a decade, not hundreds of years, to get rid of (m) millions of landmines in 82 countries. Afghanistan is one of the countries where hundreds of mines are hidden in the ground, and United Nations teams are working to remove them. Teams of UN mine clearers are digging around Kabul airport to detonate landmines safely. One member of the UN team, Mir Mohammad Shakir says he hopes the country will be free of them by 2012. "The mine is the enemy of all these people we want to solve these problems from all Afghanistan" he said. Many people have lost limbs after standing on landmines. Mir Hussein, who lost his leg said the people of Afghanistan do not want landmines because they kill people. "They are our enemy and those who make the mines is our enemy as well," he said. At one stage experts at the UN said they thought it would take hundreds of years to solve mine problems in Afghanistan and elsewhere in the world but that now it could be a case of decades. Within five years, mine experts said, the mine problem would likely be solved in Jordan, Senegal, Mauritania and Albania. International Landmine Day was set up by the General Assembly to raise awareness and move toward the eradication of land mines. Events are planned Tuesday around the world. The United Nations says deadly anti-personnel mines continue to prevent millions of farmers from growing crops, children from playing outside, and displaced people from returning to their homes. Although deaths from landmines have dropped, they are still killing and maiming between 15 thousand and 20 thousand people annually.

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special_Forces_(United_States_Army) The United States Army Special Forces, also known as the Green Berets because of their distinctive service headgear, are a special operations force tasked with six primary missions: unconventional warfare, foreign internal defense, special reconnaissance, direct action, hostage rescue, and counter-terrorism. The first two emphasize language, cultural, and training skills in working with foreign troops. Other duties include combat search and rescue (CSAR), security assistance, peacekeeping, humanitarian assistance, humanitarian demining, counter-proliferation, psychological operations, manhunts, and counter-drug operations; other components of the United States Special Operations Command or other U.S. government activities may also specialize in these secondary areas. Many of their operational techniques are classified, but some nonfiction works and doctrinal manuals are available. The original and most important mission of the Special Forces had been "unconventional warfare", while other capabilities, such as direct action, were developed over time. Their official motto is De oppresso liber (To Liberate the Oppressed), a reference to one of their primary missions, training and advising foreign indigenous forces. Currently, Special Forces units are deployed in Operation Enduring Freedom. They are also deployed with other SOCOM elements as one of the primary American military forces in the ongoing War in Afghanistan. As a special operations unit, Special Forces are not necessarily under the command authority of the ground commanders in those countries. Instead, while in theater, SF soldiers may report directly to United States Central Command, USSOCOM, or other command authorities. The Central Intelligence Agency's (CIA) highly secretive Special Activities Division (SAD) and more specifically its elite Special Operations Group (SOG) recruits soldiers from the Army's Special Forces. Joint Army Special Forces and CIA operations go back to the famed MACV-SOG during the Vietnam War. This cooperation still exists today and is seen in the war in Afghanistan... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_United_States_Army_Special_Forces The first U.S. Special Forces operations in Vietnam were in 1957, when soldiers from the 1st Special Forces Group trained fifty eight Vietnamese Army soldiers at the Commando Training Center in Nha Trang. Special Forces units deployed to Laos as "Mobile Training Teams" (MTTs) in 1961, Project White Star (later named Project 404), and they were among the first U.S. troops committed to the Vietnam War. Beginning in the early 1950s, Special Forces teams deployed from the United States and Okinawa to serve as advisers for the fledgling South Vietnamese Army. As the United States escalated its involvement in the war, the missions of the Special Forces expanded as well. Since Special Forces were trained to lead guerrillas, it seemed logical that they would have a deep understanding of counter-guerrilla actions, which became the Foreign Internal Defense (FID) mission. The 5th Special Forces Group mixed the UW and FID missions, often leading Vietnamese units such as Montagnards and lowland Civilian Irregular Defense Groups. The deep raid on Son Tay, attempting to recover U.S. prisoners of war, had a ground element completely made up of Special Forces soldiers. The main SF unit in South Vietnam was the 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne)...

De-miners walking in woodland STORYLINEL Sugar-craving honeybees could help save Europe from deadly landmine explosions, according to researchers in Croatia. They have been working on a unique method of finding unexploded mines that are littering their country and the rest of the Balkans - and they're confident of success. When Croatia joins the European Union on 1 July 1, it will bring numerous un-cleared minefields into the bloc. Some 750 square kilometres (466 square miles) are still suspected to be filled with mines from Croatia's war in the 1990s. But coming to the rescue could be unlikely heroes: mine-searching honeybees. Professor Nikola Kezic, a bee behaviour expert at Zagreb University, said bees have a perfect sense of smell that can detect the odour of explosives. They are being trained to identify their food by using the scent of TNT (trinitrotoluene), a powerful explosives mix. Kezic said his conclusion is that bees can clearly detect the explosives. "This scent, it's coming from the TNT. In the centre of this scent, we put the reward. We put sugar solution as a reward to condition the bees that they can find food just in the middle of smell of TNT scent." Kezic leads part of an operation known as Tirimisu, a large multi-million-euro (US dollar) European Union programme aimed at mine detection. "At the moment they are using standard procedure (for de-mining), but we would like to introduce also bees to check the (mine) field because bees can cover all the field by once," he said. heat-seeking cameras.

In 2006, under Security Council Resolution 1701, UNIFIL witnessed a substantial increase in its troops and responsibilities across its area of operations between the Litani River and the Blue Line. Monitoring the cessation of hostilities and supporting the Lebanese Armed Forces constitute the core of UNIFIL’s work and so each day, UNIFIL peacekeepers, drawn from 41 countries, patrol the south in vehicles, on foot and from the air. UNIFIL achieves its mandate of maintaining security and stability throughout south Lebanon through comprehensive liaison and coordination arrangements, as well as the tripartite mechanism which enjoys full and active participation of both parties: Israel and Lebanon. UNIFIL and the Lebanese Army routinely join forces to conduct foot and vehicle patrols. Working in conjunction and close coordination with the Lebanese Armed Forces as well as the strong commitment of the parties to the cessation of hostilities have resulted in unprecedented calm in southern Lebanon. The visible marking of the 120 km line of withdrawal or Blue Line is an important mechanism that prevents frictions and misunderstandings. The blue barrels also directly contribute to the security of the people living on both sides of the Blue Line by preventing inadvertent crossing. UNIFIL specialists oversee the entire process, which started in 2007. In the marking process each point on the Blue Line must be agreed by both parties, before a Blue Line barrel goes up. UNIFIL concentrates its demining efforts in certain areas along the Blue Line to facilitate safe access for the ongoing Blue Line marking process. Since the end of the 2006 conflict, UNIFIL has also assisted the Lebanese Mine Action Center in clearing vast areas of southern Lebanon of cluster bombs and unexploded ordinance, restoring land and safety to the people of the south. UNIFIL’s Maritime Task Force, the first and only naval operation in United Nations peacekeeping history, has been patrolling 200 kilometers of Lebanese coast line since October 2006. These naval peacekeepers assist the Lebanese Navy in its efforts to prevent the unauthorized entry of illegal arms or related material by sea into Lebanon. Through joint training, UNIFIL MTF also works to strengthen the Lebanese Navy’s capabilities to resume effective security control over Lebanese territorial waters. Daily air operations are essential in providing UNIFIL with a unique vantage point over its vast area of operations, giving the mission an invaluable tool for patrolling and observation not to mention transport and emergency evacuations. UNIFIL troops live and work closely with the communities living in Southern Lebanon. This close relationship has led to countless humanitarian initiatives which have directly benefited the people of the south. A range of services utilizing UNIFIL skills and resources are extended to the residents of south Lebanon, and include UNIFIL hospitals that are open to the people, as well as educational and livelihood workshops and village visits by UNIFIL vets. The result is thousands of patients have received medical care, thousands have received training in languages, computers and other skills and tens of thousands of farm animals have been treated. As each day draws to a close UNIFIL sets out on patrols that run through the night, maintaining a secure presence across the area of operations. UNIFIL has a mandate and responsibility to monitor the cessation of hostilities and help the Lebanese Army maintain security in Southern Lebanon and it works tirelessly to do so.

First, its roads that lead to schools and hospitals, as well as power and water supply stations. Right now work is performed close to the town. For demining, Russian engineers use modern mine detectors, along with robot complexes for remote demining. For that, over 170 officers from the International Anti-mine Center of Russian Armed Forces have been deployed to Syria. Also, 40 special equipment units were sent there. According to preliminary assessment, EOD specialists will have to clear up to 1,500 hectares of land.
