  • Special Operations Forces

    Was going to title it American Special Operations Forces, but since they work with many NATO and UN special forces and the fact that there are many other professional special operations forces around the world, there's no point in making it all American. All of them should be honored for their sacrifice to be the best.

    I would like to share photos from: http://www.americanspecialops.com/photos

    First there was the insert...

    ...then travel by mules.

    or dirt bike

    or by local pickup truck

    or dune buggy

    Then they lit the Taliban up.


    They grew beards; long beard = Afghani respect


    MARSOC in on the action too

    In Iraq they hunted SCUDs


    In Panama convincing Noriega to surrender


    Sometimes they were the air traffic controllers on makeshift airstrips


    ATVs are also another mode of travel


    Night stalking CCT


    There's no place the 160th SOAR won't deliver


    A battlefield's eyes and ears

        You do know that the SAS/SBS has been doing those things, one way or another, rather successfully since 1941. Their fine record up to today speaks for itself.

                    Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman

                      Egoz Reconnaissance Unit

                      Israeli elite guerrilla and anti-guerrilla unit. Operating in southern Lebanon and the West Bank, they can sneak around for hours without making a sound. With some luck, I hope to make it into this unit. Pretty hard to find pictures of, but I found a few.













                      Now a game Try to find the hidden Egoz soldiers in this picture.

                          Indeed it does. But I fear that sometimes the legacy of SOE and OSS is forgotten. They are most often remembered for training, advising and leading the resistance but they did sabotage and other direct action as well.

                            Yes but they are defunct and have been for 60 odd years.
