Flares are not decoy's but I'm still wondering why they used this in the daytime

They're not designed to generate light. That's just a by-product of generating a large, intense IR source. They're "decoys" in the sense of confusing and attracting heat-seeking missiles away from the airplane, so I'm not sure what your beef is.

He's thinking "flare" as in "flare gun" to light up the night or to attract attention in case of distress. He wasn't thinking "There's a missile on my ass...send out the flares!"

No, HE is suggesting that the correct name is "Angel Flares" and that the more common use is to light up ground forces.
C130's and similar fly so slow that no amount of flashy counter-measures can save it from a SAM.
