Marine Corps to Join U.S. Special Operations Command
By Donna Miles
American Forces Press Service


WASHINGTON, Nov. 1, 2005 – The Marine Corps will soon officially join the special operations community with a new Marine Special Operations Command to become a component of U.S. Special Operations Command, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld announced here today.
Rumsfeld announced his approval of the plan, part of a sweeping range of transformations under way to strengthen the U.S. military and its special operations forces, during a Pentagon news briefing.

It will increase Special Operations Command's ability to field highly skilled special operators in the numbers required to support of the war on terror and other missions, he said.

The command's members will train foreign military units and carry out other Marine Corps missions traditionally associated with special operations work: intelligence, logistics, fire-support coordination, direct action and special reconnaissance, among them, Powell said.

The 2,600-member command will have three subordinate elements: a special operations regiment, foreign military training unit and special operations support group.

A portion of the command will train and deploy with Marine expeditionary units, enhancing those units' special operations capability, officials said.

Oh my goodness I know they had a spec ops unit in SOCOM, but now they have their own command. Rock on Marines! Any comments would be welcomed.

In the middle of the 1080s , Ecuador experienced a series of terrorism acts: kidnappings, assaults to financial organizations, robbery of vehicles, extorsions to national and foreign citizens, etc.

The Government, to face that threat had to the Ministry of Defense the conformation a specialized Unit that, with excellent characteristics, will guarantee that intention. Thus it was like, between the months of February and June of 1985, elements of Special Forces of the three branches of the Armed Forces, were put under a training directed by a detachment antiterrorism of the Special Forces of the Army of the United States.

This training was under the supervision of the Department of Instruction of the Operations Directorate of the Ground forces, and counted on the logistical support of the Joint Commando of the Armed Forces. All the training development in the facilities of the Brigade of Special Forces Nº 9 Mother country, quartered in Latacunga that without a doubt, when giving part of its better soldiers, provided the fighting spirit and the professional conviction that they are requisite irreplaceable for this type of troops.

The 10 of June of 1985, the soldiers of the Army constituted the Antiterrorist Special Swarm, that later happened to denominate Special Group of Operations and from June of 1993 Special Group of Operations ¨Ecuador¨.

From 1991, fundamentally for operative reasons, the Military command arranged that they occupied the facilities of the Military camp ¨Epiclachima¨, which has allowed one better answer to the institutional necessities.


Between its main capacities she is the one to provide training to Units with compatible nature, because the experience and the dominion of diverse techniques battle along with a polished methodology, has given a very great space him of acceptance between the soldiers of all the Units.

In 1993 and 1996, the Commando of the Army, by request of different Units and Schools from special training, ordered to the Unit of unfolding of movable equipment to train them, at the same time he had the accomplishment shot courses and explosives, that have generated effects very positive.

North Korean Special Forces

Number Of Pages: 328

Publisher: Naval Institute Press





I really enjoyed this book. It is really the only book that authoritatively covers this topic. The book's sections on the different SF organizations in the DPRK are based on solid evidence. Some of the information seemed to me to be quite old (from the 60's), but nevertheless is convincing and still relevant considering that the DPRK seems to still operate in many of the same ways.

It is not surprising that some of the rhetoric in the book is right-of-center. For instance, Bermudez (like most other American authors on the DPRK) likes to point out atrocities committed by 'communist' guerillas while ignoring the fact that most atrocities committed during the period of 1945-1953 were committed by the Korean National Police, Army of the Republic of Korea, and right-wing youth groups. He mentions atrocities committed by communists during the Yosu-Sunchon Rebellion, but fails to mention the utter holocaust visited upon the residents of Cheju Island by the Korean Constabulary (Army), KNP, and violent right-wing youth groups; by the way, these forces were transported to the island with US assets and advised by US military advisors in the field. Bermudez doesn't seem to be interested in really addressing what motivated the guerillas of the South, but considering the scope of this book, this is just a minor detail.

Also rather annoying were the frequent and obvious spelling and grammar issues. I don't think there was much of an editing process! Check out page 22 where Bermudez says that communist partisans were to "ferment unrest". I didn't know you COULD "ferment" unrest(!) I believe the word he was looking for was "foment". These issues with his English are frequent enough to be somewhat of an annoyance, but don't really make the book any less interesting.

Hmm well looks interesting enough of course one of the readers said it had some flaws. But its the only book I could find on North Korean Special Forces.

The elite Scout Rangers, are the pride of the Philippine Military. They are the most celebrated breed of fighting men, the most admired by the citizenry but dreaded by the enemy. Clad in black fatigues, berets and balaclavas depicting the skin of the panther whose image appears in every ranger patch that they wear with pride. It is the emblem of the jungle fighter, the night stalker, a strike-anywhere force, the cunning, agile and fearsome commando. A rumor of their coming alone can even send the enemy scampering to safety. They'd rather evade these deadly hunters than leave themselves denied of any chance of surviving at all.

These commandos are known as the strike anywhere, day and night, all weather, all terrain, RANGER all the way fighting force that made them legends in the Army. Formed in the 1950's by the former AFP Vice Chief and Defense Secretary Gen. Rafael "Rocky" Ileto, the "Father of the Scout Rangers", they were the heroes of their time who sealed the fate of the Hukbalahap guerillas. Their commanders, names like Ileto, Sang-laan, Brawner, Blando, Javier are legends in the Army.

This group of commandos was tasked to counter the extremely violent Hukbalahap Guerillas in the 1950's, there had to be a compact and hard-hitting unit to match the rebels' agility and mobility. Intrepid and highly-skilled, the members of this unit had to infiltrate stealthily and strike with deadly effectiveness and withdraw as swiftly as they came in. They have to be specialists in small, highly selective strikes, raids, ambuscades, reconnaissance patrols and other offensive actions. The times called for a new breed of soldiers who had to have the skills of a consummate warrior, the stamina of an indefatigable hunter and the do-or-die spirit of a winner. On November 25 1950, The Scout Ranger was born.

Today, the Men-in-Black continues to do its performance of its multi-faceted mission, they will always be ready to take the challenge of any unscrupulous individual or group that will dare to destroy the Filipino way of life. The First Scout Ranger Regiment, Special Operations Command, Philippine Army was awarded in year 2000, the highly prestigious "Presidential Streamer Award" for combat achievements from the President of the Republic of the Philippines.

They are Flotilla 13 -- Israeli Navy SEALs -- the best and bravest of the vaunted Israel Defense Force. Theirs is a tradition begun by courageious Jewish settlers: from the early warriors who posed as SS officers in raids agianst Hitler's allies, to the intrepid soldiers who wore wool sweaters as wet suits. Today, these special forces commandos sport AK-47 assault rifles, high-tech neoprene, and night-vision goggles...along withthe coveted bat wing insignia. Now, go behind the scenes on their most dangerous missions: * The heroic 1948 attack on the flagship of the Egyptian Navy -- a masterstroke that made Israel's naval commandos a permanent fighting force * The legendary 1969 Green Island underwater assault, when weary, blood-soaked commandos went toe-to-toe against an overwhelming force of Egyptian defenders * The top-secret role played by Flotilla 13 in the 1973 "Operation Spring of Youth" -- which destroyed the PLO's El Fatah headquarters in Beirut


first book!


Wow 366 pages thats a lot! I might get this book for christmas, it looks very good! For you people who want to study Israel's history in general, it would be a good book! A lot of Israel's formation since 1949 had to do with Commando units, which started out as Militia groups. And even now, they play a HUGE role in protection the country against terrorism.

Colonel Muki Betser was one of Israel's premier special-warfare commanders and counterterrorists for twenty-five years. In this riveting autobiography, he recounts the inner workings of Israel's elite forces, which until now no high-ranking military officer has been allowed to reveal. Secret Soldier provides an intimate, firsthand account of Israel's previously classified counterterrorist defense missions. Beginning with new revelations about the Six-Day War, Betser tells of the kidnapping of five Syrian generals, reports on the execution of Black September commanders, gives us the first on-the-scene report of the raid on Entebbe, and exposes the harsh realities of a quarter century of counterterrorist warfare. Muki Betser is a scion of Israel. His pioneering grandparents, along with Moshe Dayan's father, settled modern Israel's first cooperative farm in 1922 in the Jezreel Valley. Life was hard and rugged, and Muki grew up toughened by the three values that ruled there: settling the land, defending the land, and remaining stoic in the face of adversity. These qualities informed his conduct as Israel's bravest commando. Set against three decades of ongoing conflict, Muki Betser's story underscores the daunting dilemmas the Israel Defense Forces and the country faced. A natural leader himself, he counseled his country's most eminent leaders, including Shamir and Rabin, then executed crucial missions as one of Israel's most intrepid troubleshooters. Betser's close relationship to Israel's top political and military leadership, his extraordinary contribution to his country's national security, and his unassailable integrity have put him in the unique position of being trusted to write the first - and only - inside account of Israel's elite fighting units.

His real name was Yehiya Ayyash, but he was known to the world as "The Engineer." During a twenty-four-month campaign of terror, beginning on April 6, 1994, he killed 130 Israelis and wounded nearly 500. His first car bomb, detonated by a suicide bomber, killed eight and wounded thirty people; a week later a man devastated a crowded bus with 50 pounds of explosives strapped to his body. More bombings, all masterminded by the Engineer, followed with horrible regularity. As the carnage in the streets of Israeli cities mounted, the Engineer became the most wanted man in modern Israeli history. The result was one of the largest manhunts in history. The search involved Britain's MI5, the Royal Jordanian Special Forces, the FBI, and the New York City Police Department. In charge of catching Ayyash was the Shin Bet, the most elite of Israel's secret services. Here, author Katz reveals for the first time how the Shin Bet conducted its mission against the elusive genius. Truly an expert in disguise, Ayyash on one occasion escaped detection dressed as an old Arab woman and on another as an Orthodox Jewish student. As the search wore on, and the killings continued, Ayyash became revered among Palestinians, more than 100,000 of whom turned out for his funeral. The Hunt for the Engineer is a real-life thriller that provides a rare look behind the scenes of Israel's secretive security apparatus and how it operates within the stark context of life and death in the Holy Land, where bombs are once again shaping the political landscape.






Looks like some really interesting books, I'll prolly get them soon. And if anybody has them or is buying them, feel free to post your review here.

The Senoi Praaq is a Malaysian special forces unit originally created in 1956 by the British colonial authorities to fight communism during the Malayan Emergency. The term "Senoi Praaq," which roughly translates as "war people," stems from the Semai language and is the basis of a colorful legend in Malaysia. The unit is largely comprised of non-Malay tribal peoples known collectively as the Orang Asli of Peninsular Malaysia. Jumper details Senoi Praaq inception as a private army and its subsequent development into an affiliate of the Royal Malaysian Police (RMP) in this fast paced and often graphic account of irregular warfare as it applies to counterinsurgency.

The unit began as a creature of British Military Intelligence and fought in the deep jungle as Special Air Service (SAS) protégés, eventually replacing the latter upon Malaysian independence from Great Britain. They then served as mercenaries employed by the United States Central Intelligence Agency in Vietnam and later fought on Borneo during Malaysia's own undeclared war with Indonesia. Today the unit remains under arms and heads up a large paramilitary apparatus maintained in conjunction with conventional military forces. Malaysia's capacity to project force throughout South East Asia should not be underestimated, Jumper warns. The Senoi Praaq is a unique fighting force upon which Malaysia may rely to preserve her sovereignty.

I can't believe I found a book about the Malaysian Special Force! The book is about 240 pages, and another think I find interesting is when I was reading the book about how koppasus was formed. Ken Conboy was talking about how the US was at first helping the rebel forces to fight against the communist government in Indoneshia, and the British were also. I wonder if this unit played any part in that? I'll have to read more of my book I guess.

Okay the first thing I want to discuss is foreign defense missions.



I was reading in Richard Marcinko's books that one of the reasons we take part in it. Is so we know how they fight, just in case we ever go against that country. Another reason we do it of course is so that we can support countries starting to found a democratic government. Another covert way we've used FID is to train tribesmen and other ehtnic groups to fight against communist forces in their countries. We also used FID to train them to fight against communits's in other countries, such as Laos we trained tribesmen to patrol deep into enemy territory and bring the fight to the enemy.



Opinions?

Its pretty effective to train indigenous people to help combat the insurgence like for example the Vietcong. Conventional forces would just pretty much blow everything up. Not to mention is cheaper in blood for American soldiers that dont know the language when the tribes can do better since they know the terrain and culture.

O yeah this belongs to the Vietcong.




Its enough to rattle the North Vietnamese and their allies.

Dont know if its right translation since I dont know Vietnamese.

It was the first book on the Special Forces of Southeast Asian Countries. Most interesting were the camoflage uniforms and badges that were featured. Though some of the drawings / plates could be improved upon. The authors sources were accquired from the Defense or Information Attaches of the featured Countries at their offices in the USA. Though it does not go in depth as the other Osprey books in the series about the units development and personal histories. It provides a basis for future books on the Special Forces of in South East Asia.






Short book, but the only book out on these forces.

In the towering mountains of northern India, a chilling chapter was written in the history of international espionage. After the Chinese detonated their first nuclear test in 1964, America and India, which had just fought a border war with its northern neighbor, were both justifiably concerned. The CIA knew it needed more information on China's growing nuclear capability but had few ways of peeking behind the Bamboo Curtain. Because of the extreme remoteness of Chinese testing grounds, conventional surveillance in this pre-satellite era was next to impossible.
The solution to this intelligence dilemma was a joint American-Indian effort to plant a nuclear-powered sensing device on a high Himalayan peak in order to listen into China and monitor its missile launches. It was not a job that could be carried out by career spies, requiring instead the special skills possessed only by accomplished mountaineers. For this mission, cloaks and daggers were to be replaced by crampons and ice axes.




Wow, looks like this is not the first India, US, and China dillema. Interesting

Secret training in the Kuwaiti desert: goods a dozen of elite soldier of the command special powers (KSK) of the Federal Armed Forces trained until few weeks ago with its just as well durchtrainierten comrades of the Special Air service (SOW) out of Great Britain and the American Seals the emergency. Your order named itself „Combat Search and Rescue“ and existed therein to find and to rescue shot down pilots.

This scenario is for the American troops thoroughly realistic at the boundary to Iraq, for in the execution of that of the United Nations mandatierten flight ban zones in Iraq allied military aircraft came already frequently under iraqi fire. Also the KSK trains regularly the rescue of shot down pilots behind hostile lines and the release of hostages.

The Americans and Britons have already over 200,000 soldiers in the region. In the mean time also hundreds of helicopter are and Kampjets at the gulf arrived. Therefrom are crosses alone 72 battle jets also on board the aircraft carrier „USS Constellation“, that before Kuwait in the Persian gulf.

Major Jack Schuller commands two helicopters of the type Seahawk on board the aircraft carrier „USS Constellation“ in the Persian gulf. It is technically function for that responsible, that the flyers, and also test flyer is incidentally. Its unit names itself „Helicopter Anti-Submarine-Squadron“ or also simply only „gold-like Falcons“. Also some battle swimmers belong unit of strong to the 200 men. A team flies several times in the month on the Kuwaiti mainland to the training. Major Schuller is full admiration for the command of special powers of the Federal Armed Forces: „the German are instructed grins really well.“ and then he: „only the American Seals are shows better.“ to the proof he in its narrow two-man-cabin a very especially interesting picture: in the middle of the far desert somewhere in the north of Kuwait, that is since middle February military barrier zone, posieren a good dozen of soldier in blacker uniform before one. „That are the German KSK-men.“ he speaks candid over the order. Are quiet on the other hand comes out of Berlin into the inquiry of the WORLD after the KSK-maneuver out of the defense ministry: „we do not express to an use of the special powers.“ to us

While the Britons prepared themselves and American already at that time gradually for the war case, the German elite soldiers should gather experience in the contact with such that which is sought actions in the desert at its colleagues obviously solely. Above all its knowledge in the field of the Fernmeldekommunikation should be expanded, the remaining craft thing as well as lowering of the helicopter brought it already with. Further the mandate of the German did not go and goes.

Why is such a practice held secret if it is so harmless? Only through chance, also an use had run in November 2001 at the public when KSK-soldiers trained jointly with Britons in the grandma niche south province Dhofar. They prepared themselves however already in the past in the USA for deserts uses.

The Federal Armed Forces introduced are in the frame of the operation „Enduring Freedom“ according to Bundestag mandate up to 100 KSK-soldiers, that in the bathe-württembergischen Calw, stationed in Afghanistan. Yet few weeks ago had been speculated over a deduction of the command. In the mean time the situation in Afghanistan changed. According to Ministers of Defense Peter Struck are the KSK-soldiers yet the single special powers of the Anti-terror-alliance in the country after the USA its Special Forces drawn-off and have probably to Kuwait verlagert. Since then the German is supposed to have been into battles with terrorist intricate. Also these statements are not commented on in Berlin.
