Perhaps one day they really will have a war, aqnd nobodyll come to it.....
Meantime, the need for spec ops troops in low intensity warfare is paramoun.
These are the troops who actually do speak the languages and that have askill sets which can save as well as take lives.
They are the training backbone of these guerrilla armies tat wanna make national status.
They are the quick reactionn forve that pulls the spys out of the soup.They akso have better rapoire with the natives usually, and can get things done
efficiently if not by the books.
We will definately see a cruching need for this kind of soldier for some time to come if we continue to persue these small warfighting situations.
Yemen and somalia are cases in point.
But the afghanistan and iraq wars will continue to draw these forces.
The focus now should be on how to make these guys more lethal.
yet still portable and black.
