#1 There's an old book by Chris Ryan who was in the SAS "The One That Got Away". The book received a fair amount of criticism because of some things thay Ryan said in his account. Just the same ... his basic accomplishments for E&E were outstanding. The thing that amazed me about that book was how little support was given to the SAS when they first deployed to the Gulf (First Gulf War). Guys were scrounging for all kinds of equipment, including firearms and rifles. That's insane. Looks like Britain may be going back to that stage again.

#2 McNab's Bravo Two Zero was another good read. Glad I wasn't on hand for that one. :-(

#4 The Brits are going to support or save France + Germany, etc. Euros from the Caliphate, Nuke-wannabe Global Jihad - HOW, AGAIN???
E.g. WORLD NEWS > JIHADISTS IN GERMANY [pro-Salafism] TERROR THREAT TO AMERICA + ALLIES, SAY NEW TRAC ANALYSIS.
German = Allemaigney Bad Boyz are increasingly non-Foreign or non-Foreign born converts to Islam + Salafism from traditionally Western religions. IOW, GERMAN YOUNG PEOPLE ARE UNHAPPY WID GERMAN ANDOR WESTERN LIBERAL SECULARISM.
Reminds me of STAR TREK:TNG EPISODE [paraph] > LT. WOORF = made the observation that "NEW GENERATION(S) OF KLINGON WARRIORS ARE HUNGRY FOR SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE".
As for America = Amerika, ...
* CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > IS THIS THE FIRST STEP TOWARD AN INDEPENDENT WHITE REPUBLIC IN THE US? | [Independent.CO.UK] AMERICA - GUN-TOTING RIGHTS TAKEN TO THE HILLS. [US] LIBERTARIANS ARE PLANNING TO SET UP SELF-SUFFICIENT COMMUNITIES TO TURN THEIR BACKS ON BARACK OBAMA'S AMERICA.
Once again, Year 2014 = formal request by US State-Local Govts, NOT just Citizen-Resident Individuals, to SECEDE from the US Federal Union of States, as dependent on what happens between the BAMMER-VS-CHINA-IRAN + US-WORLD ECON DURING THIS YEAR 2013.
FED DENIAL OF RIGHT TO SECEDE = RISE OF ARMED REBELLION + MILITANCY IN THE US???
