Of the Elite Forces the Green Berets are amongst the most respected of the most notorious Fighting-Troops in the world. They fear no enemy, they assault through the heart of their enemies territory, these Commando-Troops are the Royal Marines Commandos.
The Royal Marines have a fearless reputation that has given them a legacy of battle honours that is second to none. They are the Royal Navy's sea-soldiers, the Commandos. They are a superior fighting force that does not boast of their capabilities.
The Special Boats Service (SBS) are usually all Royal Marines; they are also part of the Royal Navy.
The SBS is among the most secretive of the stealth fighters anywhere on the planet. They have been involved in all of Britain's serious conflicts but rarely do they get publicised for what they do.
And that's the way they like it, and want it, they always prefer to keep a very low profile.
It was a job for the SBS near Kuwait
It was a job for the SBS who were near Kuwait they always go in fast; hit the enemy hard, nothing stops them.
This had the hall marks of another simple job; just go ashore and plant special devices to guide smart bombs directly onto their targets.
The bombing needed to be precise so as not to cause more damage than was necessary to the Palaces and other expensive buildings.
Osama Bin Laden's Death
Faylakah was the Kuwait Island 10 miles
Faylakah was the Kuwait Island 10 miles off the coast of Kuwait. It was heavily fortified. Saddam's plan was to thwart any possible attack by the allies from the sea to regain Kuwait.
The Iraqi troops had stacked out the island with giant anti-aircraft guns. They had hastily built a thick concrete surround to protect them.
It was perceived by the allies that Saddam Hussain would assume an attack from the sea would be the most likely approach, because of the Allies expertise in amphibious landings.
Curved kukri knife of the Gurkhas
The Gurkhas are famous for being World Class Stealth Fighters some of their famousness derives from their Kukri Knife.
The Gurkhas undoubtedly are as good as their outstanding reputation.
Like the Green Beret of the Commandos the Kukri Knife is their recognition of distinction.
The Kukri Knife of the Gurkhas is world famous; by tradition the feared knife remains in its scabbard when not used in action, except in exceptional circumstances or for cleaning.
If you befriend a Gurkha he will show you his lethal weapon of death but he might want to draw a little bit of blood with a nick on the thumb.
The Special Air Service
The Special Air Service (SAS) are the Stealth Fighters of the British Army. The SAS started out operating behind enemy lines.
Who Dares Wins is the motto of the SAS they are the elite of the elite of the British Army. Their rigorous training is too much for most people.
To apply unless special circumstances prevail you have to be a serving member of the British Army.
Because parachuting is essentially one of the tools of their trade the majority of their recruits are from the Parachute Regiment.
Sometimes the SBS and the SAS work along side each other in teams.

The 2nd is: Each Legionnaire is your brother in arms whatever his nationality, his race or his religion might be. You show him the same close solidarity that links members of the same family.
