Delta Force Dropped into New Orleans!
personal call | 9/1/05 | trubocat

2 teams of Delta Force operators have been dropped into New Orleans. Hopefully this will make the MSM news. Sounds like the heavy guns have come to help.

They need to have deadly force and take them out!! I heard on the radio that one of the hospitals had to stop evac because of sniper fire. I can't even put into words what low down scumbags, filth of the earth would act in such a way. Every bad word I've ever heard in my life isn't bad enough to describe these thugs!

#1 I hope to God they are assigned to a NG unit. Despite the horrific conditions posse comitatus is an important principal in assuring our freedom. (Yes, even under conditions of martial law I prefer that units assigned to direct security operations be NG units attached even in name only to a state.)

#2 I hope that they can back them up quickly with a significant presence of visible ground units providing a secure corridor for evacuating refugees.

There is no Dboys there. But, Miss. and Alabama both have 20th Special Forces companies there. Same abilites as active guys just guard.

They might be mobilized to go to NO.

Delta is too busy in Iraq to deal with anything.

It really does make me angry, too. The Delta Forces and National Guard can't get their fast enough. To think that these thugs are not concerned with getting out themselves or helping others, but rather shooting those others trying to get out, and targeting the weak in hospitals. It was one thing to take a TV. Bad enough. So the store may have insurance. And the goods may be saved from being ruined. But then what? There's no power, they can't use them. They won't be able to take it with them when they are evacuated. Ok, maybe for some it's just the stress, but the thugs firing on police trying to save people and stealing from and shooting at medical centers - that is the bottom. And I guess the situation after dark is like out of some terrible movie. And I couldn't help but notice that all the thugs are well armed. I keep reminding myself that most of the people are decent and stressed beyond belief, and focusing on that as much as I can. Then I read another story like this one, and the bad words pop up ...

"Wow, a whole 20-30 guys "

You could be right. I doubt they have any idea what they're getting into, unless they've really been in there for awhile.

"Wow, a whole 20-30 guys - I don't care how well trained they are, it they ain't going to do squat."

Really? These aren't suicidal jihadist or kamikazies we're dealing with here; these are desperate people made brazen by a lack of authority.

You start having members of roving gangs, openly armed, given warning to disarm...then have those who refuse dropped one by one by an unseen sniper, I think they'll get the message that the rules of the game have changed.

You see a member of your looting posse's head explode by a high-powered round delivered between the eyes, and stealing that pack of smokes from the corner store doesn't seem that important anymore. Fun's over at that point and you think twice about doing it.

"Folks, DON'T POST THIS KIND OF INFORMATION. If this is true, Delta Team may want secrecy initially!"

Secrecy? Who's gonna spread the word inside the city? They could blare this from the rooftops and it wouldn't make a difference.

Again, they're facing loosely organized, totally untrained scum. Pretty safe to say the OPFOR isn't proficient at MOUT, especially when facing some of the most highly-trained people in the world at such work.

I just try to remind myself that they might get away with it for now but they will answer to God. I wouldn't want to be in their shoes when that time comes.

But for now, I'm really ticked!!

They want help and need help but these (*@#^(&*#$%__#+@ are shooting at the helpers.

Not trying to rain on your parade but DFSF is not in any way trained to deal with US citizens run amok. They are in fact trained to carry out specific types of missions ,under specific types of circumstances. Law and order detail NOT being one of them. SLAUGHTERING about 1000 Somali's that deserved just what they got being more in line with their capabilities.

I thought they went to Waco as, um, trainers.

So maybe they could be there on an, er, training mission. If they're there at all.

This would not violate possee comitatas as I understand it.

I've been wrong before however.

They will. Incompetence He can forgive, but this bordered on dereliction of duty. And the worst part (ok, not worst, just another bad part) that all her dem cronies seem sorry for her, and the mayor as well, and angry at Bush, instead of directing their energy toward helping her constituents and helping her work through the disaster to save and aid as many as humanly possible.

They want help and need help but these (*@#^(&*#$%__#+@ are shooting at the helpers.

And they'll probably join the complainers when they finally do leave the city and things begin to normalize, as much as they can. And they seem well armed compared to the regular citizens, and completely unfazed by the situation. In fact they seem pleased to try to take advantage. It's a shame. It is infuriating.

It's surely comforting to learn that we have snipers available who can kill at will the guilty as well as the innocent. It's a good time to have the judge, the jury, and the executioneer all wrapped in one.

Then, it's especially revealing since the rescue of the victims of this natural disaster has been exposed for what it is for the most part, an absolute and total failure.

We should expect nothing less for our money than the best our money can buy. So why is it that I am witnessing the worst failure of our govt in my time on fox news right now?

I tend to doubt this.

If someone is in Delta, they ain't talking. And they ain't telling folks who will post it in a popular internet chat room.

If someone is in Delta, they ain't going to go shooting up an American City...I dont care how many times they've watched XXX. Its against the law. They won't do it.

Anyway, I wasn't even sure if Delta "officially" exists.

Hot damn. I just hope none of the Delta Force Studs get taken out by a conscienceless NO thug.

20-30 Delta Force Soldiers can do some SERIOUS damage. I'd take 20 of these highly trained US Soldiers over 2,000 NO Policemen, any damn day of the week.

You are right, they could do that maybe in 6-10 corners of the city...that leaves only about 10,000 others...

After seeing so much conjecture regarding the operational capability of SFOD-D, I had to throw my $0.02 in here.

1. Posse Comitatus - Even though everyone knows they exist now, the Delta Force is a secretive organization. Yes, they do partake in operations aimed at American citizens, on American soil. SFOD-D team members were at Waco as "advisers" and they've been known to attend the riots (dressed as protestors) that surround world bank summits. They were involved with the Able Danger group.

2. The FBI admitted their own special operations groups went into NO to secure vital government communications and national security infrastructure sites while the hurricane was still happening. It wouldn't surprise me in the least id SFOD-D was used/involved.

2. To the guy who said only 20-30 Delta operators couldn't do squat, suggest you watch the movie Black Hawk Down, and/or research the subject. 18 American soldiers dead, 1100+ enemy fighters killed.

3. To the guy who said our govt. doesn't "waste" high level special ops soldiers on "deals" like this, you are wrong. Securing national security infrastructure, in the form of datacenters and communications site that store/relay sensite/classified data, is not a waste of military resources.

4. To the guy who asked if they would have trouble traversing city streets that were flooded, no.
