    SAS 'Blades' rescue 150: Crack team of commandos snatch terrified Britons from desert

    SAS 'Blades' rescue 150: Crack team of commandos snatch terrified Britons from desert nightmare in war-torn Libya

    "SAS has staged a dramatic evacuation of 150 civilian workers from the Libyan desert.
    The Special Forces soldiers landed in two C130 Hercules military transport aircraft on a landing strip near remote oilfields south of the eastern port of Benghazi.
    The SAS men – known as ‘blades’ because of their role at the sharp end of the mission – had flown from Malta’s Valletta airport, where, in meticulous detail, they planned the rescue of the stranded workers, many of them British. ... "

    There was a second raid last night. Britain's Special Forces get it done while others reposition, but I can't help wondering why they are being sent to rescue folk who went there for a tax free high-paid job.

    To quote George Peppard when he was part of the A-team: "I love it when a plan comes together."

    I SALUTE the Blades, the PM who must have signed off on the mission and the Staff who planned it as will as the pilots etc. It had to be a pretty will planned operation.

    Because they're your folk. In the end, nothing else matters.

    The second raid last night drew fire, and a round apparently glanced off the pilot's flying helmet. Some rebels later apologised, they thought the Herc was Gaddafi coming after them!

    Good thing they didn't get into a real firefight, the mission may have suffered catastrophic failure.

    Why? Because the SAS isn't the most elite special forces on Earth? They can't handle a firefight?
