WHO DARES WINS….

By ATWadmin On August 31st, 2008

Interesting to read that I am not alone when it comes to figuring the best way to deal with terrorists…


“More than 3,500 insurgents have been “taken off the streets of Baghdad” by the elite British force in a series of audacious “Black Ops” over the past two years. It is understood that while the majority of the terrorists were captured, several hundred, who were mainly members of the organisation known as “al-Qa’eda in Iraq” have been killed by the SAS. The SAS is part of a highly secretive unit called “Task Force Black” which also includes Delta Force, the US equivalent of the SAS.  The prime targets have been those intent on joining the wave of suicide car bombers that claimed around 3,000 lives a month in Baghdad at the height of the terrorist campaign in 2006. Using intelligence gleaned from spies and informers, Task Force Black has nearly broken the back of the terrorist network and reduced bombings in Baghdad from about 150 a month to just two. “


Shock horror – that’s the way to do it – you kill them.

  1. Good work. Quietly efficient and targetting the truely evil individuals and groups who deserve it.

  2. What is interesting about the SAS is that they operate independently from the armed forces (although recruited from them). Even the Govt has no knowledge of their operations and will deny any involvement should their actions hit the headlines.
    Traditionally, senior SAS men are recruited from the well educated classes, their chief armory being fluency in two or more languages.
    Unlike the US Delta Force (which often sees itself as heavily armed Rambo’s) the SAS go lightly armed and unobtrusively, which is why the two probably won’t mix when on missions.
    These covert operations have been so successful in Iraq, there are now moves to re-introduce Special Operations Executive (SOE), which was disbanded by the Labour govt after WW2.

  3. And if we remember back to the incident in 2005 of the raid on an Iraq police station in Basra, where 2 SAS troopers were sprung from jail after they had been arrested at a checkpoint dressed in Arab garb. They opened fire on the police, killing one, while trying to escape. Inside their unmarked car was found explosives and small arms.

    Angels and protectors of the Iraqi people? Or fomenters of sectarian violence?

    Oddly enough he original BBC links have been scrubbed from the archives.

    These is the best links i found, the dreaded antiwar MSM seems to have "lost" the rest of its pages (like reuters photos of the cache of weapons found in their car):

  4. I might have guessed you would put a different slant on the exploits of the SAS. However, when they are going after the individuals and groups who are attempting nihilistic suicide bombings amongst civilians surely it is a good thing that they take them out before they can be succesfull ?

  5. Colm, I missed ya mat on my trip.I leave tomorrow. You’re very lucky to live in London (on a vacation!)

  6. Charles

    I thought you were going to be in London while I was in Rome. I didn’t realise you were here this week. I am out of London this weekend but would have been happy to meet you – as indeed I would love to meet any of our American friends. I hope you enjoyed your visit here. Did you meet up with any ATW regulars ?

  7. Trip of a lifetime,mate. Alison showed me around the City, a real luvvie she was. Showed me how to manage the tube as well. Made 3 train changes today no problem.

  8. Charles

    Fantastic. Glad you managed to meet one of us at least. Alison always strikes me as a great knowledgeable Londoner with a love for this city. I am sure she gave you a splendid overview of our hometown.

  9. Charles –

    Are you travelling incognito? I swang by the Hoxton Hotel yesterday evening (after being out and therefore not online all day) and they had no record of any Charles staying there.

  10. Interesting Daytripper. As are the exploits and poloicies of Brig Gen Frank Kitson and his advocacy of psuedo gangs and false flag operations.

  11. Desperate, Daytripper. Those of us without selective memories remember that the Iraqi ‘police’ involved had been thoroughly infiltrated by Islamists as were many other police units at that time before the Iraqi Government got a grip and purged them of such elements. They were fully intending to hand their captives over to the enemy, and this was why our guys were broken out of jail.

    This was *Basra*, remember? And as for the shock of a weapons cache in their car, well obviously this must be evidence of some kind of false flag op, because undercover SAS men would normally be carrying flowers instead of weaponry, wouldn’t they?

    And your also somewhat selective searching also is as defective as your logic. An Altavista search of ‘sas men basra jail’ gives articles from:

    The Times

    The Mirror

    The Manchester Evening News (!)

    And that’s just the front page. Either you need a new search engine or you need a new relationship with the truth.

  12. DSD are you suggesting Britain hasn’t and would’nt ever employ such henious tactics?

  13. DSD are you suggesting Britain hasn’t and would’nt ever employ such henious tactics?

    He has yet to figure out that it has been part of the British tool kit since colonial days.
