I seriously doubt that a SEAL team was inserted into NK unless something major was being planned (as in overt military action) in the near future.

Navy seals would not have been used to take out Kim.

Why, because they would never blend in, they would never pass as Koreans.

In Iraq and Afghanistan the seals grew beards and darkened there skin and went native.
They could never pass in NK.

A CIA deep team made up of Koreans could pass. yes they may have been seal trained but not been seal team.


Exactly, however there's plenty of Chinese/Korean/Japanese SEALS or even Marine MARSOC that could blend in easily without sticking out like a sore thumb.

What's the saying? When there's a firefight during a Recon mission, someone fukced up.

had to be 6 huh? Seal team 5 is so last week, since they weren't the ones who "got Binladen". BTW, did you hear about Kimmy's daddy the first time he played golf? Got a bunch of hole in ones. He was a "pro".


Team 5 and team six are totally different units, as different as the Rangers and Delta


Do tell

Seal Team 6 is the Navy equivalent of Delta Force. They're a counter terror unit, who pulls members from other teams. To borrow a cheesy movie line, they're the best of the best in the Seal Teams. They generally don't get a lot of public acknowledgement, because of their primary mission.

They were formally disbanded in 1987, and their mission passed to Seal Team 8. They were reconstituted as DEVGRU. It's not clear if DEVGRU is the same as 6 was, but when it was stood up, they used members of 6 to create the unit.

According to your link Seal team 6 is not listed. As in it does not exist in the actual chain apparently. SO i would guess the reason is they are either so bad arse that seals under designation of 6 are top of the military heap...or its just a mis representation to throw off people.

Koreans, Chinese, and Japanese all stick out like a sore thumb when not in their own Asian cultures. They're not identical.

Beyond that, "plenty" is a pretty relative term. SO forces are overwhelmingly white. Far beyond the percentages in even the conventional military.

That's because while they go by Seal Team 6, they're formally known as either NSWDEVGRU or DEVGRU.

According to some reports, Black Squadron, who makes everyone else look like blabber mouths when it comes to OPSEC, even has female operators.

I'm talking DEVGRU. They're the Delta equivalent for the Navy.

It actually makes sense for Black to have them. They're the Recon/Sniper unit. Most people wouldn't look twice at a woman or a couple, and certainly wouldn't put them with a Seal unit.

ISA has been using female operators since pretty much it's inception.

Anybody who thinks any Tier-1 unit isn't using females in some capacity has a screw loose, for the very reason you cite: in some situations, females can go where men can't, and a couple can go where a single male or two males can't.

Tier 1 operators from all branches
Often work SAD/Sag

It's compartmentalized by conglomerization

Exactly. The last thing you're going to think is that they're part of a SOG.

Dude, what the heck are you talking about, in my old unit alone there were enough Asian grunts that could make up a team and blend in, just like the white spec ops in A-Stan. I'm sure there's more then a fire teams worth out of the few hundreds of current seal members that are full blooded Korean.

Dude, I don't know how to dumb it down any further than I already did. "Plenty" is a relative term. Considering, as an example, Army Special Forces which are almost 90% white. SEALs are made up of around 90% white dudes. MARSOC is around 90% white dudes.

But you're right, I'm sure you could come up with four guys somewhere in SOF to send in to North Korea. If one considers that "plenty" then hey, you did a thing!
