Reuters: Al-Shabab militants attacked special forces cadets in Somalia, 30 people killed


"30 soldiers killed," said representatives of the Islamist group Al-Shabab.

The Ministry of Defense of the country data on the victims have not yet specified.

“According to our data, Al-Shabab militants attacked groups of Somali army commando cadets from ambush and captured two pick-up trucks,” spokesman for the armed forces Ahmed Ibrahim told Reuters. “It is too early to talk about the number of victims, because the battles in the jungle continue.”

    Well, Somalia is an African version of Ukraine ... And I respect the Somalis, who once lowered the brave American special forces so that the Americans had already withdrawn their contingent from their country ... a great picture-a bunch of natives with Kalash punished "the most fighting and brave army in the entire visible universe "

      Do not call Somalis!
      The Ukrainians had both industry and statehood, and the Somalis last couple of hundred years either slave traders from Europe or "special forces" from the USA - survive as they can!

      you are very deeply mistaken about the delta operation in Somalia, but they screwed up, but there were reasons that were not related to the delta fighters themselves (poor intelligence, mistakes in planning the operation, underestimated the enemy), but if you compare the losses, the deltas were killed only about 30 killed and a little more than 150 wounded, when the Somali losses amounted to 1500 people killed and wounded. you can put me cons, but this is a fact, although I myself do not like these mattresses

        For me, the ratio is lethal for the Yankees. What kind of special forces is it if 180 fighters are beaten out by some Papuans with Kalash and RPGs? And then, if these losses are enough for the Yankees to hastily withdraw their entire contingent from the country, how are they going to fight as an adult when losses by hundreds and thousands go?

      Are you so happy for the pirates who kill people and rob ships, the radicals who swore allegiance to IS, or are you happy for the freaks who attacked unarmed people in training? Thanks for the clear answer.

    If Somalia is Ukraine, then the methods are appropriate. Two pickups were wrung out.

      Yes, Somalis with special forces were unlucky: it’s immediately clear that it’s not a Russian school ...

        Cadets against seasoned militants ... you know ... you want a lot ... In fact, the killer pros attacked the boys from an ambush ... without knowing the details, it’s difficult to imagine the whole picture, but I think that the cadets had no chance ...

          All Somali pirates, who had previously captured and robbed ships, switched to safer "work" by roadside bandits! You don’t need to work, the mug for schnapps is always ready, the snack can be easily taken away ..... And how long have these monkeys on palms, with their tails clinging together, been sitting. They got down to trouble .... Even their brother from Kenya to the White House was attached the main monkey!

    What kind of special forces is this ... too big losses.

    Although if the cadets are newcomers and their commander miscalculated in something ... then the Al-Shabab militants were just lucky.

    Usually, special forces are ready to join the battle even in case of an unexpected attack, and such losses are not typical for him.

      The usual, what is it called there, Delta? There, not the special forces as such, but the mediocre planning of the special operation: they did not provide for the escape route, respect for the secrecy regime, emergency evacuation and support. As a result, special forces lured into the city, surrounded and methodically snapped from the upper floors of buildings. About the same as ours in Grozny.

    As usual, the Yankes instructors did not succeed in educating the future “peacemakers,” since the local population, who did not agree with the Yankees, applied their tactics — the tactics of their ancestors.

    Are there any remnants of statehood in Somalia? The American writer said that he had to go to Mogadishu to get to know this city for real, from the inside ... The Internet writes all sorts of nonsense, he said, some kind of maps, tables and nothing really about any country ...

          I don’t like this “blogger” at all, and his travels of 100 photos and 10 words all the more.
          But something interested.

          Negroes in Somalia are responsible! ))))
          And also, strangely enough, there are a lot of photos of Negroes Smiling.
          They are also neatly dressed, almost every third person has a white and clean T-shirt, they probably eat there every 3-4 days, but they wash their shirts at least once a day.

    I remember a case when a company of US fighters met a platoon of special forces in the jungle.
    Two days later, the battered company without weapons returned to the unit.
    The commander ordered to report what happened. The report was as follows: "We met an enemy platoon. Apparently it was special forces. They started kicking us and took away weapons." The commander asked: “Why with your feet? And what did they do with their hands?
    The company commander’s response was: "Sir, they used their hands to move their eyes to appear narrow-eyed."
    Then the commander of the American unit ordered to collect the mono and quickly get out of Vietnam. I have the honor.

    “30 servicemen were killed,” said representatives of the Al-Shabab Islamist group. Well, the militants may not even lie, I think, several times less in reality.

    Do they have weapons besides color combat mugs? Are there knives or machine guns? If not, then it is surprising that they only lost 30 people.

      "Mature" in Africa there is little of anything at all.
