Wgatenson -- A Special Forces' eliteness is measured in how competent they are in how many operations/scenarios. If the SEALS were judged inadequete
for Iraq, then they would not have sent any/many men... I am not going by numbers, because there are ONLY 400ish SAS and 250ish SBS men...
You dont deploy troops incompetent of fightning in a certain scenario unless you absolutely have to, and the fact that 150,000 troops were there means
that it was a pretty committed war effort, so why did they go to war without their elite guys there? Becuase they werent up to the job
That has to be one of the dumbest statements Ive seen in a while, and Ive been around my blonde mother for the past three months!
In case you werent aware, special operations were present in Iraq long BEFORE this was started. Of course, its not something we were broadcasting,
seeing how technically, we werent supposed to be there.
That should answer your question, why we didnt send our Elite Forces in with the rest of the invasion: they were already present doing what they have
If you want to know how long they have been in Iraq, they were there in 95, when we were mainly bombing the Iraqis during the embargo. I was there,
not In Iraq, in Saudi, but I found out we had some people over the border doing covert type #, what, I can only guess. I only know a few airlifts and
such were made for personell not identified.
So, your assumption our elite forces were not sent to Iraq because of inadequecy is pretty lame: they were already there. preparing for the invasion
that has been in the works for over 10 years.
And no, our elites dont train under the supervision of the SAS and SBS.........though both are good, we based our Elites on other models Ill not go
into, ya know.
