British Special Forces in Syria?
Only a few weeks ago I wrote the thread above about British Special Forces operating inside Syria, I actually spent time to go and do some research, provide links and write a thread about British Special Forces inside Syria that was based on research. It got 8 flags and 33 responses.
The OP picks of a video on YouTube that shows some teenager with a T-Shirt on with a British Flag on the sleeve then declares that the guy in the video is a “British navy seal trooper” showing his utter ignorance and gets 17 flags and over 160 replies, over twice that of my own that is actually based on facts and not ignorant ramblings.
What is wrong with ATS when the thread based on rubbish get more attention that the thread based on facts.
Now with my little rant over, I will address the factual inaccuracies with the OP
Firstly, I agree British Special Forces are operating in Syria, but what we are looking at in this video is not a member of the “British navy seals” for a number of reasons. Primarily, because the “British navy seals” don’t exist, they are called the Special Boat Service and secondly because no respecting member of British Special Forces is going to stand around on his own with his badges clearly on view with camera’s around. Way to show of your ignorance of the Special Forces community OP. With such Ignorance then I would also love to know how the OP can identify British made ammunition when he clearly can’t even identify a member of the British Military.
I don’t think I could be any more frustrated with this rag of a thread or ATS than I am right now.
Why do the mods tolerate this?
A t-shirt from Camp bastion who is the main British military base in Afghanistan, this t-shirt have a UK flag on the short sleeve, and the afghanistan map on the front, . . .
