It seems to still exist unless I missed something, I know the war crimes allegations from 2013 but is there a link for it actually disbanding? Or a plan to disband it?


AFAIK one squadron was disbanded, not the entire SAS.


The shitty squadron I assume? Seems fair.

Not even the one in this video, but another one (2nd squadron).

That's what I hate most about the current state of this site. There's no more people on the ground/job giving their take on things, outside of all the media hubbub. Usually bringing nuance to the story, more often than not going against stereotype.

The video I saw had them popping some unarmed kid while he was prone on the ground with his hands up and a dog chewing on his leg. Insurgent or not, that's some bad optics.



Yeah, because the DEA are such stellar dudes.

I mean, yeah, if you are so psychotic that the corrupt as fuck DEA won’t work with you, maybe that means you are in fact pretty fucking psycho.
I'd whore myself out just one more time if I knew who to screw to get out of this grind.

DEA are totally boy scouts. Never lied, or crossed anyone.

If Barney Fife in Pig's Knuckle Texas is legit by law allowed to lie to you....DEA? LMFAO.

C'mon man. As an aside, how many deployments under your belt?

Read up a little about it.
Stuff got called out by (fellow trigger-pullers and) attached elements. Not my shop but scans like poor leadership more than anything allowed this thing to fester.
