http://tinyurl.com/kpljczj Along the past two days November 22 and November 23, 2014, Mail on Sunday published a piece of news describing, with some details, the way in which the notoriously effective British SAS (Special Air Service) is directly involved in fighting against the Islamic State (ISIL) forces in Iraq. According to the British newspaper, SAS troops with sniper rifles and heavy machine guns have killed hundreds of Islamic State extremists in a series of deadly quad-bike ambushes inside Iraq . The same open source reports that defence sources indicated that soldiers from the elite fighting unit have eliminated up to eight terrorists per day in the daring raids, carried out during the past four weeks , and that until now, it had been acknowledged only that the SAS was operating in a reconnaissance role in Iraq and was not involved in combat.
But The Mail on Sunday has learned that small groups of soldiers are being dropped into IS ISIL territory in RAF Chinook helicopters to take on the enemy . The same piece of news says that the SAS soldiers have expended so much ammunition that regimental quartermasters have been forced to order a full replenishment of stocks of machine-gun rounds and sniper bullets a set of details indicating the exceptional intensity (and probably the exceptional number and pace) of the SAS combat missions in Iraq. A SAS source quoted by Mail on Sunday declared: Our tactics are putting the fear of God into IS ISIL as they don t know where we re going to strike next and there s frankly nothing they can do to stop us .
The same SAS source also said that we re degrading their ISIL s morale. They can run and hide if they see planes in the sky but they can t see or hear us. Using so many snipers takes the fear factor to another level too; the terrorists don t know what s happening.
They just see their colleagues lying dead in the sand 1 . The same piece of news is published, in a concentrated form, on a website called Funker530.com: Veteran Community : As many of us have always said, if we want to defeat a force who relies strictly on guerilla style warfare, we need to be allowed to do the same. SAS operators have been granted their wish, and for the past month starting with mid-October, 2014, they have been slaughtering ISIS fighters by operating in small, specialized teams .
The same brief text says: The SAS squads have been using armed quad bikes to assist in their operations, allowing for quick and improvised assaults in areas that have not been littered with IEDs Improvised Explosive Devices yet 2 . The SAS has been established in the Second World War (in July 1941) by Colonel David Stirling. Now it has three regiments, the best known of them being the 22 SAS Regiment.
It is a part of the United Kingdom Special Forces. SAS has been involved in all the wars the UK has fought in the past more than 70 years. Its combat history is remarkably successful.
More than this, we are to remember that Iraq has been a territory under British mandate, for quite many years after the First World War. Many SAS members are fluent in Arabic, and linguistic skills plus a solid institutional memory make the unit a major asset for any serious Western strategy against the ISIL. Open sources say that SAS involvement in combat missions in Iraq might indicate preliminary steps of a major offensive against ISIL.
It might be launched next spring, by Iraqi regular units trained and directly supported by elite forces from several Western countries, including the UK. In terms of military capabilities, the massive SAS presence in Iraq is a major obstacle ISIL is now confronted with. On November 14, The Telegraph reported that around 100 British special forces troops and military intelligence experts will remain in Afghanistan next year in 2015 after combat forces withdraw, to assist elite US troops in their fight against extremist leaders, defence sources say , and that Britain s SAS will work alongside around 1,200 American Delta Force and Navy SEALs 3 .

The British Special Air Service (SAS) is known for it s motto Who Dares Wins . According to new reports from the British defense ministry, the SAS has been daring and winning for almost a month against ISIS terrorists using all terrain quad bikes with machine guns mounted to the frame. The elite troops than seek out their ISIS targets using the element of surprise or under cover of darkness.
With missions on an almost daily basis, the SAS regiment expended so much ammunition that quartermasters were forced to order a full replenishment. According to one SAS source, Our tactics are putting the fear of God into IS as they don t know where we re going to strike next and there s frankly nothing they can do to stop us. We re degrading their morale.
They can run and hide if they see planes in the sky but they can t see or hear us . Using so many snipers takes the fear factor to another level too. The terrorists don t know what s happening they just see their colleagues lying dead in the sand Operations start with hours of analyzing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and drone footage of potential target sites, intel reports from soldiers on the ground, and communication intercepts aimed at identifying ISIS leaders.
Once a target is identified, commandos are given their orders and leave the secret desert base via a fleet of helicopters carrying the troops and their modified quad ATV s. SAS soldiers are then dropped in as far as 50 miles away from their target in order to minimize alerting the enemy with the giant Chinook helicopters. Disembarking with their quad bikes, machine guns, and Barrett sniper rifles, the elite warriors hunt down the terrorists.
This is what the British are doing each and every day while Obama plays patty cake with terror.
