This is coolbert:
On three recent occasions American navy SEAL's demonstrating a combat expertise and skill at ranger/commando/special operations missions of the most daring and difficult variety, feats of military prowess perhaps without parallel!
1. From 2009:
"Navy Kills 3 Pirates, Rescues Ship Captain off Somalia's Coast"
"Kidnapped Captain Freed, Pirates Killed"
"Navy snipers on the fantail of a destroyer shot and killed three Somali pirates in a lifeboat and rescued an American sea captain in a surprise nighttime assault on Easter Sunday, ending a five-day standoff."
SEAL's parachuting from a fixed-wing long-range aircraft into mid-ocean, taken aboard the USS Bainbridge, engaging with sniper rifles Somali pirates and hostage takers, killing three, capturing one, American merchant marine captain safely rescued. Mission accomplished!
2. From only 2012 recently:
"U.S. special forces rescue Somalia aid workers"
"U.S. Special Forces parachuted overnight into Somalia from fixed-wing planes, then advanced on foot to a compound holding two kidnapped international aid workers and freed them"
"The nine gunmen holding the hostages -- were killed, the officials"
The nighttime combat parachute jump, the forced march, the raid on the compound and subsequent gun battle with Somali kidnappers, hostages rescued! Mission accomplished!
3. And of course from one year ago now:
"Obama Announces Killing of Osama bin Laden"
"WASHINGTON —President Obama announced late Sunday that Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al Qaeda responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks, was killed in a firefight during an operation he ordered Sunday inside Pakistan, ending a 10-year manhunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist."
Mission accomplished!! And most gratifyingly so too!
Their reputation preceding them, the American naval ranger/command/special operations SEAL's without qualification ranking among the BEST of all time. Raiders the missions of which historically have only about a fifty percent [50 %] success rate under the most ideal of circumstances the SEAL's seem to accomplish with what appears to be almost casual indifference, NONETHELESS markedly outstanding.
They do themselves proud!!
