    No sympathy for British citizens stuck in Libya acting like it has only been horrible these past couple of weeks. What about before that when the people were being oppressed? No doubt that was okay as it did not directly affect them
    Idiots. They should have been left there

    If someone has paid taxes and then lose their job through no fault of their own and cannot find another. The State should help and I am happy to pay high taxes for others in need.

    Would have no sympathy but won't support withdrawing welfare support from everyone just because of a few who may not deserve it.

    The SBS are tough lads, and they've got a reputation for bravery, but they're certainly not the most elite.

    Delta? Don't even try. Check out a book called Task Force Black, it's all about Delta and the SAS in Iraq -- Delta's not even in the same league.

    The French Foreign Legion's an army unto itself, and so it isn't special forces, but the 22nd Parachute Regiment stands a fair shot -- they're still not the SAS though.

    Who else?
    If the SAS is so damn good then how do you explain this????

    Up to eight British soldiers are being held by rebel forces in Libya after a secret mission to put British diplomats in touch with opponents of Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi, according to the London Times.
    Thats sloppy and downright embarrassing in the SF community to be captured by what ....rebels??? Not even the elite of the Libyan army, maybe even some were recently civilians and they get captured? I've never heard of this many American SF taken prisoner in any recent conflicts.

    I may be biased because my brother is a Captain in the Green Berets but with the job they & other SF units did in originally taking down the Taliban & Al Qaeda, I dont see a more sucessful mission by anybody than that in recent times.

    Well you see. The SAS WERE TOLD to not engage. So yeah. Once you are spotted and captured and you are told NOT TO engage. Well that kind of leaves you vulnerable to being captured. I am sure if they were allowed to fight. They would not have been caught. Plus the people they were captured by were anti-Gadhafi so it can be resolved easily, hopefully. If not send in other SAS but this time to kill. And we will see how things end up.
