"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
Ehh most elite, they likely don't know amongst themselves. Different groups for different things most likely. What theyre trained for and what theyre sent to do.
President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."
Secondly, there are statistics to prove it. CAG, or Delta, and the SAS do train together a lot, and they're both highly professional, as all special forces are. But you can look at the SAS's induction rates and drop out rates, compared to Delta, to prove my point.
I tend to think SEALs are quite possibly the most well trained special forces in the world on top of even the SAS. Maybe it's cause they have a movie. Maybe it's cause 4/5 people who get it into don't make it through SEAL training. Colombia's AFEUR also should get a special mention on bravery alone. They quite possibly carry out more operations than SEALs and the SAS combined.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
I've never been in the special forces, but I've always heard of the SAS being the best. I think there is a lot of national pride at stake here, and that's understandable. But I'm going to cross the aisle, so to speak, and, as an American, admit that I've always heard of the SAS being the best.
