BRAVO SIERRA ALERT: US Special Forces 'parachuted into North Korea'

I was going to wait until tomorrow to post this but the story has gone viral so I'm going to jump in and do a little damage control:

The Telegraph: US special forces 'parachuted into North Korea'

The general officer quoted in the article isn't only smoking dogfood he's drinking the bongwater. His claim that ANYBODY is parachuting into North Korea is right up there with Santa Claus & the Easter Bunny conspired with George Soros to give us Barack Hussein Obama as revenge on the American people for succumbing to George Bush's mind control techniques.

It's telling that the Telegraph posts a pictures of regular Marine grunts unloading an Amphtrack. Heads up Newsboys - THIS is what Special Forces soldiers in Korea look like:

Soldiers of 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne) and the Republic of Korea 11th Special Forces Brigade training near Gwangyang, South Korea - notice they are wearing CPOGs (Chemical Protective Outerwear Garments) - an indication of anticipated NorKorCom response to the presence of US/ROK SF on the battlefield. (Andrew Kosterman/ U.S. Army )

This ain't World War II occupied France - the North Korean airspace & coastline is the most seamless, heavily-fortified on Earth. They have radar, TONS of anti-aircraft (nap-of-the-Earth helo infil not an option they stretch cables between hilltops) and they literally sweep their beaches twice a day, for evidence of beach landings. When I was in 1st Bn/1st SFG in Okinawa our no shit go-to-war plan for N. Korea involved: A) infiltrate by parachute or sub-surface/over-the-beach, and B) after the sun comes up, die in place (and try to take as many of them with you as possible).

North Korean Special Forces: these guys do NOT f*ck around.

North Korea has increased the number of its special warfare forces and battle tanks over the last two years as part of efforts to improve both conventional and asymmetrical military capabilities against South Korea. According to the South Korean Ministry of National Defense 2010 Defense White Paper, the number of North Korean special warfare forces has increased by 20,000 to 200,000.

Bottom Line: if there were any validity to this story we wouldn't be hearing it from this bozo clown one-star general we'd be learning about it as they paraded the RoK/US SF infiltrators before the cameras at their propaganda show trials.

Anyway the commander of US Army SF in Korea is a major, not a one-star. I suspect the journo's who filed this story got the officer's duty position mixed up, but that's easy enough to do; Special Operations chains-of-command are notoriously confusing, even to the soldiers within those units. I suspect we do that on purpose, in keeping with the sentiments expressed by a Wehrmacht general: "War is Chaos, and the reason the American Army excells at War is because they practice Chaos on a daily basis."



  1. BS!! No one can resist George Bush mind control!

  2. Do we still have SOCKOR? Could BG Tolley be COMSOCKOR?
    Concur with everything else you've written (for what that's worth).
    Boat Guy

  3. DO you remember when we were told that they were expecting 70% casualties on infil if we had to go into NK?

    Not a good way to pump people up on a battle plan.

  4. Omigawd I DO remember being told that! I also remember being told that the real reason we had troops up on the DMZ was not to keep the NorKorComs from coming south - it's to keep the South Korean RoKs from going NORTH!
