Revelations of the Commander of US Special Operations Forces

58
In the military command of the special operations forces of the United States discussed the development plan for this segment of the American army. The discussion, as stated, stems from the fact that the number of challenges and threats to the United States is growing “around the world,” and to the fact that American MTRs need to be adjusted further. Lieutenant General Kenneth Tovo, commander of the USASOC (Special Operations Command), notes that the role of special operations forces is growing, but there is no clear understanding of the place of MTR in large-scale operations of the American army.


General Tovo singles out several main areas for further development of the USASOC. In particular, the expansion of the use of foreign forces that would act in the interests of both these forces and those of the United States is being considered.

From the statement that leads the American portal DefenseNews:
The development of foreign forces to conduct their own operations and the creation of professional combat forces among the US allies.

It should be noted here that the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation actually accuses the United States of creating affiliated forces from among, including terrorist groups, in order to solve their own problems with their help too. In particular, the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces says that in Syria, American special forces actually openly contact with ISIS militants (* banned in the Russian Federation).

Apparently, current contacts are not enough for the USASOC, and therefore they will expand.

Revelations of the Commander of US Special Operations Forces


Another direction of development for the American SSO is as follows: increased attention to training for the commission of raids, during which high-ranking officials could be eliminated, which would make the enemy's efforts ineffective.

This once again confirms that the United States not only does not refuse to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, but is also prepared to make this intervention even more frank.

    In general, the United States intends to focus on the use of its proxy forces in order not to use its own army, so that they have trained and motivated troops anywhere in the world that would need to be given appropriate command and included in the operation.

E. and the Cheka under the SNK of the RSFSR (All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage under the Council of People's Commissars of the RSFSR) was created on December 7 (20), 1917 [1].

    in Syria, American special forces are virtually openly in contact with ISIS militants (* prohibited in the Russian Federation).

On the Internet, infa passed that in Russia they applied for a US green card of 200 thousand people, in Ukraine 1.5 million people.

    I believe that the US MTR has already worked out actions for a long time. I wonder where they took the agents and recruited? During the holidays of large officials abroad since the 90s?

    And most importantly, in which merchant ships cruise missiles will be hidden, and most importantly, the US MTR Assault Unit 75 Rangers Regiment ??? I also believe that Delta operatives have long been hiding illegally in the Caucasus under the cover of other people's documents ... apparently there are even caches with weapons and uniforms there, because they could have come there from Abkhazia earlier in the same 90s ...

During Putin’s visit, around him a halo of sterility created by FSO officers observed their work at Seliger (he was a forum member).

            it’s difficult to speak with a person who does not know the initial Azov in special operations, and besides, not carefully and without analysis, read my first comment where everything is indicated ...

            I’m chewing a little ... The average age of a US MTR fighter is 45 years. All fighters of the US MTR, except for the fighters of the 75th Rangers regiment, and similar detachments of the Marine Corps (they don’t need at this stage, they perform purely assault operations) are trained as operational intelligence officers, who conduct autonomous operations and strategic intelligence operations as well.
            So do you think that they do not have recruited agents among high-ranking officials? Given that the 90s did not pass for the CIA for nothing ... And the officials love to relax abroad, including with their mistresses, especially they distinguished themselves again in the 90s ...

            Do you think that CIA analysts just slammed open borders again in the same 90s, where from the side of Abkhazia it was easy to go in and do caches, including those with specially designed autonomous-wearable missile systems with great destructive power? You are naive ... It’s impossible to control the mountains and the great length of the coast even now, even with ideal radars ... And did Delta’s introduced operatives, under cover of fictitious documents, including using Russian passports, just sit in Bars? And how to control merchant and other vessels sailing along the Black Sea? From any merchant ship you can strike, including cruise missiles, approaching the coast for 100 km, and not a single radar can really react, and if you can, then there will be no time for evacuation, but to shoot them down is problematic ...
            So here’s the usual classic operation- Several masked ships with shock missile systems come up and wait for a signal. Small sabotage groups (illegal reconnaissance) armed with caches it strikes simultaneously at significant radars and at the residence itself, after which an even more powerful blow is delivered both by cruise missiles and ballistic from disguised Vessels, and possibly from the waters of Georgia, Turkey, Romania (they won’t even know). directions a previously raised strike helicopter assault flies up with fighters of the 75th Rangers regiment, in stealth helicopters (used in Pakistan to eliminate Bin Laden, not a single radar was noticed) from the same camouflaged ships and ports in Georgia, Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey .. .A helicopters flying along mountain ranges it is very difficult to pinpoint ...

            ... and I feel good about our specialists. But not for everyone. Helpful servants spoil the big picture. But the main thing is not that, but the fact that we are "knocked down" by the 90s! This is a very serious flaw in our Analysts ...

      Don't you think that they hid under the sofa? It’s worth checking and just in case to take up the defense!

    Another direction of development for the American SSO is as follows: increased attention to training for the commission of raids, during which high-ranking officials could be eliminated, which would make the enemy's efforts ineffective.
    This once again confirms that the United States not only does not refuse to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, but is also prepared to make this intervention even more frank.

    On our part, intensified counterintelligence work is required to identify moles in the personnel of friendly armies and to prevent leakage of information on the movements of Russian high-ranking advisers

    It is quite reasonable - for those nasty things that the Yusovtsi are up to, frostbitten mercenaries are just that.
    They held out for specialists in real bloody work! They calmed down the most frostbitten ones, it doesn’t make a mistake, the rest have grown fat for real work of such a plan and are not adapted.
