Which special force?

What would you use to go up in the Afghani mountains? Army Rangers, SEALS (for some reason), Delta Force (Officially Denied), Marine Force Recon Team, soldiers from the counter-drug operations in South America hmm? I'd go with a combination of them, myself.

Just send in Dick Cheney to finish the job.

I think a nuclear war head would do the trick nicely...

I am a Navy man so my opinion is somewhat influenced.
But, the SEAL’s of course! They are the BADest!

When a future SEAL gets done with BUDS school, he goes off to phase two of training, which is Underwater Diving. You know they say (could be a tall tale) that during UD training, they actually get drowned and learn to breath, with some substance, just like they did in the movie Abyss. ???

But anyway, then there is phase three, which is called Completion Phase. Over the course of a year, the go to Ranger school and learn to jump out of planes (as high as 30,000ft), then Marine Recon., and Delta-Force Command. Then they’re full-fledged SEALs.

But don't forget about the Black Beret's. There are Green, Red, and Black Berets (in that order of bad-ass-ness). Sometimes you here things about the Red Beret's but you don't and probably will never here any thing about Black Berets. (in the Media)

So that's my vote. SEALS!

GOD BLESS AMERICA

The SEALS are elite, and I believe the acronym stands for 'sea,air,&land'.

Only step up from those "boys" would be Delta Force, a deadly combination of all the elites from each service who are hand picked and not very nice

From the army, the red berets are airborne troops, green berets are special forces, and black berets are rangers.
