|Whatsup guys, hope all is well. Anyway, I was watching Bill O'reilly tonight, and although I didn't catch all of the story, one of Bill Clinton's former advisors was recommending that the US should send Special Operations units into Pakistani tribal regions to "secretly take out terrorist leaders". What the heck? I know CAG has been in Pakistan, but wasn't their mission more along the lines of SR and not DA?
I just can't believe how uneducated some people are regarding the use of special operations. So this guy is a former high ranking Clinton official, and he thinks we should "secretly" go into Pakistani tribal regions and start capping terrorist leaders, as if it is that easy? Does he not realize that the (I'm assuming CAG) operators would be HEAVILY outnumbered and outgunned? Once they fire a single round they would be fired upon with AK's, Mortars, T-55's, RPG's, among other things. Large Pakistani Army units have gone into the area and in one op lost 42 soldiers (I believe). My Lord, it would probably take the entire 75th Rangers along with a few companies of 82nd AB and CAG to successfully go into an area that size and start killing BG's. Am I wrong here, or are most people uneducated on the use of Special Operations?
