I would always respect those kind of service man/woman, that give so much to defend people in our different countrys. It dosn' matter if you are from the middle east or westen europa, africa or america or what ever. These people protect us in one way or the other. I recognize the need for forces, like i recognize the police and there bye law and order.
To offer your life to protect others, must be the ultimate act of courageous behavior.

With all due respect, how many civvies watching SAS Survival secrets anticipate being tortured or interrogated? Good info, but I think going to Mr. Stones team building survival school in Scotland would be a better investment of time and money..

As a young marine in VietNam I volunteered for Combine Action Program basically this was a unit of about 10 marines who trained peasant villagers in weapons and tactics to defend themselves from the VC. We lived in the villages with them and were responsible for a designated area to patrol. We ran 3 man patrols one marine with an M60 machine gun, radio operator and an automatic rifleman. 111MAF sent some of us to be trained by the Australian SAS in jungle survival and tactics. These 2 SAS NCO's stayed out in the bush for weeks at a time taking with them more ammo that food because they lived off the jungle. These were the toughest MF's I'd ever seen in my life dedicated to the profession of soldiering hard and in 2 weeks we learned a lot. It is indeed an honor to be accepted into such an exclusive band of brothers and these men are as close to being called supermen as any other. They have a code of honor that proves that they are men of integrity for professional soldiers never rape or kill someone who is not trying to kill them. These guys were not only formidable jungle fighters but can put down anyone in a beer drinking contest. That training they gave us paid off because the top brass not believing that the NVA were on their way in force got the message when one of our patrols counted thousands, they were so close that our guys said sweat was popping off their foreheads like new made money. They gave us orders to go roving patrols with no fortified compound like we had before we would be quickly over ran. They tracked us on the move but with what the SAS taught us we'd circumvent their moves and come up from behind them with a surprise, we'd caught a whole company in a rest area and ended their rest by calling in an air strike on them. It was these SAS that taught us how to use the jungle to our advantage in tactics. I'm glad they are on our side.

Just finished part 1 the doc isnt what I thought it would be like ( not truly sure what I was expecting to see lol) and while it is a bit slow it is informative and I will watch the rest later because while I personally dont think I posses the balls to be a soldier and go to war (and luckily I am too old to ever find out for sure) I have huge respect and am in awe of those that do. Especially at the level of special forces like the SAS, what these guys are capable of is amazing

Too bad the uploader bailed out before I could watch the last segment. This is an excellent doc. It might seem 'shallow' to those who have no experience in combat arms. But the rest of us think it's very deep. Try going through battle school before you criticize.

Justin_n_IL <--- self righteous narrow minded people like this guy are just internet heroes. When thing goes bad he'll be one begging for mercy from the enemy, me i rather die fighting. O and all those people complaining soldiers are puppets of corporation and governments, then do something about it, you are the one buying products from these corporations, you voted for the people in governments.Don't like it? get on the street and do something then. Soldiers follow orders some good some bad, but pretty sure this is why drop out rates are high because they still human. So all you self righteous people stop the whinge binge and do something if don't like what's around you, oh wait let see you're too busy with your facebook and social issues yea?, life is too busy you cant miss your morning coffee o and cant be late for work right because you afraid you'll get fired and won't have money to get the next iphone.

Wars are started and fought over a lot of different reasons, some good but mostly bad. I have nothing but respect for the people in any military as long as their heart is in the right place. Where I run into problems is when politician use patriotism and human ignorance as a weapon for greed. These examples are far too easy to find and it's not just people like the Nazi's or the North Koreans. I believe we are all too blame for this greed and need to make some fundamental changes to the way we govern ourselves. I just want to end with, as long as your rights don't infringe on other's then you should have every right to continue with that life style. In today's society war is necessary but I don't understand why we shouldn't try and change this for the better.

Christpuncher,

I am surprised you keep trying to debate. It's like you are "trolling". These are men who believe without any doubt they are doing good, and by that, they are good men. They have trained hard, and should be respected as a human being for much more than that; but there is mischief at work around the world today.

Anyways,

My opinion:
These videos are how to survive in a combat situation, but they acted out attacks over and over; that's really not how I plan to survive a military takeover, though basic survival was still portrayed. Cheap videos, good to fall asleep to, and a lot of propaganda behind heroism.

I watched these videos in order to gain knowledge for upcoming events. Some of you probably know what I'm talking about, then there are those who still firmly believe wars are somehow fought for peace and not control. The world will one day see the obviousness of the truth, that you are all just images of that truth. There is a great deception to the overall awareness to this truth that cannot sustain itself for much longer. Through a series of events your mind will either wake or sleep forever. This is not religious, this is spiritual; you do not even have to believe, just be.

If you want to learn, quit the denial stage and research the real truth behind 9/11. Don't be afraid of what you might stumble upon, it's just a white rabbit's hole.

I agree with you in general, these guys are invaluable in many ways. And just like samurais or viking warriors did, they too should get some respect for their devotion to their skills because even if they are ruthless or not, they aren´t doing any of these things for their own selfish purpose. However I must say that according to their own operational standards they are obliged to prevent civilians from exposing them if that would mean their mission would be jeopardized. Even if that meant killing them, which is clearly stated in the book "Bravo 2-0" written by Andy McNab who you referred to earlier.

@ChristPuncher - The majority of what your saying is right and epic however your making one crutial mistake, Caring. Why do you give a shit or waste your seemingly valuable time addressing numb nuts on the internet box.

Relax, if you really feel the need to get up and let people know they are wrong i would suggest writing a book or blogging becuase this medium is not going to work. People will argue with you even if they agree, its the american way.

The scariest part of this doc is thinking that in "2012" or whenever shit starts hitting the fan, these highly trained gentlemen may just be coming after you and me. BROTHERS AND SISTERS, GET YOUR GUNS AND START DOING PUSHUPS!

All of you dumbies are so quick to criticize that you all don t even think about the honor there is in being part of the SAS and serving your country as an SAS soldier .My life's dream is to join the SAS and train with the world's greatest soldiers and don't even talk about bear grills because if you watch his show as much as i do you'll see the amount of skills that he has attained from the SAS

Later on when talking about land mines, you can hear the disgust they have for these indiscriminant weapons. One SAS soldier was put on a gagging order after a v. convincing anti- war speach he gave a couple of years ago. Many ex- SAS either drink themselves to death or commit suicicde. Dont sound like the NWO robots some would suggest. I bet the SAS cause far less collateral damage than your avereage infantry.

Look, I used to be a big liberal and thought like juju, I grew a bit older and woke up. War is and has always been a necessary thing throughout history. It's only in the 20th century thru the brainwashing ideas of liberals and peacenicks that this idea of a non-violent, weapon, soldier free world has been introduced. This is total garbage. And juju let me remind you that if an all out war broke out and you were in a danger you would be begging on your hands and knees for an armed soldier to protect you. You don't need to like the military, you don't have to respect soldiers, but trust me when the S hits the fan you'll be glad they were there.

And you are right, i definitely got head of myself when i said

"Funny you should call me Kid, when i’m probably the most experienced member of the site to be talking on this subject, and You still live in your parents basement"

Just got pissed off when these CNN watchers just start calling anyone with a uniform on a murderer. I do believe that there are people on here with at least the same, if not more military experience than i, so i apologize if i offended any hardcore Vets of war.

Yes there are psychos in the military who just love to kill things...i do not support them. Who i do support are these hard bastards who storm buildings regularily to rescue their own countrymen from gunpoint. Sure...call him a killer, but he has used his skills for good! To say they all do, would be wrong, yes, to say they all are just killers without remorse, is also wrong. But because of the adolf hitlers of this world, we need men like this, and we need to keep them well practiced!

And it seems you mis-interpret almost everything i say...when did i claim i knew the feelings of all soldiers? That was you claiming they all kill without remorse...i said you are WRONG, because i feel remorse.

You have turned this into a personal attack, other than a discussion about the SAS...you are just out to start trouble, nothing more. And thats what youll end up with one day...more trouble than you can deal with. Good luck to you, and i hope one day, maybe your parents can finally afford that basement :P

I just read the report in which you speak of. 3 different versions.

"The September 19 arrest of two undercover Special Air Service officers in Basra, traveling in an unmarked car containing weapons and explosives, has led to numerous accusations that they were acting as agents provocateurs.

The BBC reported that the SAS men’s car contained “weapons, explosives and communications gear,” before claiming that these were “standard kit for British special forces.”

And clearly, i know not everyone in a uniform should be supported, there are a lot of a--holes in the military...but you didnt bring up the a--holes...you brought up the military as a whole. You generalized them all as nothing more than trained killers. They are humans, they have families, and they are men of action, for the most part fighting for what they believe in.

This is what you are going on? a bunch of special forces kit found in the car of undercover special forces members? you are joking right? These are not facts, these are accusations.

And i should have just sighed and walked away? Wrong, thats what civilians do when they see something disgusting happen, i refuse to stand by and have ignorant highschool kids, whos parents cant even afford a basement, criticize something they know very little about...you get all your information off CNN or BBC, how well informed could you possibly be?

Funny how you should say the drop out rate would be enormous...you are right...its well over 90% in the SAS. that is what we are talking about, arent we?

christ puncher - it was sept 19th 2005 - you where right, it was basra- no that was not andy mcnab - and tbh i highly doubt you honesty when you say you have the most experience here - otherwise you would have done the utmost mature thing - looked - sighed - got on with something useful, instead you sit here posting comment after comment being a belligerent POS
oh, and no, my parents dont have a basement but im sure you were clearly aware of that fact, along with your clear knowledge of every single soldier and how they all have remorse for their kills, and how training and experience clearly doesnt make them become inhuman.... seriously - get out in the world - if that was the case military drop out rate would be immense and its not a question of inhumanity, its the ability have the correct state of mind, call it professionalism, objective thinking or call it inhumanity, whatever you choose to call it, it can easily be obtained through correct training and mental attitude.

I’m sorry Kain, my first hand experience says you are wrong. I have a lot of remorse for the things i did throughout my career. The mission in which you were reffering to was in 1991, where the attack was carried out on a communications tower, not civilians. there is no possible way you have any more info on the subject than anyone else to date. It was not Iran, it was in Basra on the Syrian border, The SAS member name was Andy Mcnab. They were NOT killing civilians, where did you hear this? Closest incident i can think of was the american blackwater incident"

well i think you had better re-read it, because i had never once claimed to have taken part in that mission, or any other mission in 1991 for that matter. I have never been to Basra, i have never been to Syria, and i have never claimed to be. i merely said i have remorse for the things i have done throughout my military career (which is not with the SAS, if thats what you are getting at?) i openly admit i would epicly fail their training regime.

What i do have is first hand experience about how soldiers feel about taking the life of another enemy combatant, and i can assure you, no one kills without remorse. That would be inhuman, and these men are just as human as the next man.

If the economy collapsed, and socety went with it, it'd be these soldiers that adapt to it the easist, where you'd be dead from internet withdrawl in a matter of weeks if you could manage to feed yourself for that long.
