It’s been reported that Italian special forces are in Libya for a training mission. They’re operating under the direct command of the premier’s office but they aren’t teaching them to cook pasta. They’re training the military.
Several dozen have moved to the African nation. They will help train the army that is fighting ISIS and attempting to prevent them taking over. Shouldn’t be too hard with the clusterfuck that ISIS seem to be most of the time.
ISIS are slowly spreading their soldiers and their influence and in recent days photographs showing British special forces in Libya were also printed in the media.
The British forces will be smashing ISIS to pieces there already. They love a good scrap. This was after reports were printed about the UK soldiers being present in the area and they weren’t just on holiday.
Three French special forces soldiers were recently killed in the country and that meant France had to admit that they also had troops on the ground in the war-torn country.
It’s hard to just shout about having troops in the country. People will question the reasons for it. You can’t just tell them to get fucked when you’re a government. You actually have to give a proper answer and it puts the governments in difficult positions.
If lots of countries want to put boots on the ground without committing to too many troops or a proper invasion then this could be the way to damage ISIS.
A mixture of Italian special forces and soldiers from a handful of countries would have a great effect on the morale of local fighters. They love having the SF guys around and treat them like royalty.
I don’t mean they get them to open up local fetes and give them flowers and needless compliments that piss them off no doubt, but they appreciate their presence.
Small groups of elite forces can train, assist and defend positions that will help local troops defeat the terrorists. But it’s going to be an ongoing battle for the area where Daesh think they can become strong.
The world will want to see ISIS defeated as soon as possible. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them involved in aggressive battles against Daesh in the near future. Smashing the fuckers to pieces and letting them get their 72 virgins.
US troops involved
It’s not just Italian special forces though. US special operations troops have been busy is war-torn countries (which is nearly every fucking country nowadays) for a very long time.
They’re often the first ones on the scene and the last ones to leave.
They can work covertly and in small groups which makes them ideal to remain concealed among Libyan forces but can still have a great impact on the battle. Sounds good.
With more reports surfacing of US and UK troops working together to help defend Sirte this is surely bad news for ISIS.
