The tactic works......but first you need to establish very good and reliable intel so you're actually putting down the right people......


Yes. Which has been the biggest problem with Syria. One must choose which group of bad guys to target. Six of one, half a dozen of the other.

That neck shot of the General's girl friend BEHIND the

And the surgeon was picking out the slug, and saying "No way".
Carlos- "172 grain Speer boattail, caliber .30"
"I'll be damned...". No you won't, doc.
He didn't have the highest count but man could you count on him.

I am not a former anybody nor a candidate, but I approve this tactic.

Well said, thanks for your opinion and contribution to the thread.

Don't get me wrong, I found the article interesting from a critical thinkers stance. Daesh has declared war on the U.S and most other non Muslim countries. What is happening to them is the only language they understand it seems.

But they have been allowed to get as far as they have through complicity that is for sure and their accomplices need to be exposed.

It would be a lot better than the tactic always used in movies and TV, to run towards your perp, gun drawn, yelling their name from a block away, giving them lots of time to run, creating a long chase!

The people in charge isn't in syria. The people in charge is in Libya that is the new caliphates capitol. They want others to die for their cause aren't really happy when its them that have to die.Imams and other leaders preach hate and death but they expect others to do the dying.

Thank you. Agreed. There are a lot of dirty hands in this. On the one hand, it would seem, a bunch of unintelligent madmen driven by bonkers 7th century ideology, on the other a bunch of greedy and power hungry madmen too morally bankrupt to care about the evil they've caused.

The whole situation reeks. It's just sad that sensible people who want nothing to do with either side are often in the crossfire.

At least this seems like the crazy staying local to the crazy in terms of carnage.

Very disturbing. Maybe we need to put some snipers in Libya. (Apparently I'm all about killing people these days. God help me.)

The task force is known to operate very autonomously. In their only publicly known operation they reportedly conducted several raids without requiring approval from nearby conventional command structures and only requiring it from USSOCOM.[citation needed] The task force was also responsible for the tracking and eventual elimination (by F-16 launched ordinance) of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.


A group like this perhaps?

Yes, but what does this mean?


Currently, rumors of a "reformation of a similar Task Force going by the cover name of TF Black" have emerged, although most former Special Mission Unit members and insiders believe that since the whole concept of a "Task Force is temporary, hence the term 'Task' Force...as in being tasked with a particular objective", this would be unlikely, regardless of the reports of mainstream media to the contrary. Most of the time, Task Forces such as the original TF Black, cannot technically "be reformed" to hunt ISIL when the creation of a more current and lesser known joint Task Force would make more sense to those inside the Joint Special Operations Command. [21]


From above source.

My thinking is that a new task force has been formed and is going after leadership.

Simo was "The White Death" to the Soviet troops who were unfortunate enough to invade Finland while Simo had a rifle.

The methodology being employed by this sniper, wherever they might be from, is the only methodology which can defeat an organisation like IS. Fighting them from the air will not be surgical enough, fighting them with massed troop movements and artillery will not be effective because they are a group founded on asymmetric warfare doctrine, becoming little more than vapour once stern enough opposition arrives, and disappearing.

Slow, methodical hunting, small units only, low visibility, high impact. Shoot, move, wait, hunt, shoot, move, wait, hunt.... It is nice to hear that someone appears to recognise this, finally. Who ever this sniper turns out to be, someone needs to buy that person a pint.

You mean like JSOC? The problem with those units is they are only so good as their intelligence, and in JSOCs case in particular, the "level" there of. They feed way too low on the food chain to be effective. If these reports are true, and I'm not convinced, of a sniper that is actually hitting legitimate targets of strategic importance, we can probably rule out JSOC for their preference for illegal drone strikes, but their agenda seems to be targeting lower-middle management. Destabilising localised command chains, but not affectively cutting into the infrastructure. So that might be on par.

JSOC? No, not like that.

I am talking two man or possibly three man teams, which operate without the necessity for communications with a command chain for the entirety of their deployment, who gather and operate on intelligence themselves, rather than relying on sources external to that unit, and require no material support from outside that unit, preferring to steal materials required when necessary from the enemy in order to affect their destruction.

Totally, bloody invisible. JSOC do not fit the bill in the least. They rock up in stealthy choppers, crash them, fill the entire compound with lead, and then leave. They do not do neat work, but they do not have to because of the virtually unaccountable status they enjoy as a result of the command structure above them. Whoever is doing THIS work however, is methodical, patient, surgically accurate, invisible to the enemy and friend alike, and has a low collateral footprint. In short, this does not smell to me like a JSOC op, or for that matter an American one. You show me an American commander who would rather send a sniper to take a man out, than bomb a hospital from an aircraft with huge collateral, and I will show you a man who just lied to you about it.

Yep, we agree on this. As I say, I'm not particularly buying that anything other than propaganda is going on here, but it does have finesse and precision to it, which to be honest kind of excludes most UK, official, operatives too. I'd personally be more inclined to say it has a French air to it. That has no bearing on whichever nation, or entity, is paying for the assassinations however, could as easily be private sector.

It is unlikely that US weapons are loose. After the fall of the Soviet Union, there was some worry that some of their nukes were on the market.

Chris Kyle never died


Seriously though, this is the best solution to this isis problem. There is no justice to be had for these savages and their bronze age ideology, only death and extermination.
