American Special Forces Doing Special Forces Things in South America

A special training b-roll package released by the United States Army shows members of the 7th Special Forces Group conducting maritime assault and airborne training from Florida to South America.


First and foremost, this video comes to us courtesy of American combat correspondent Staff Sergeant Daniel Lee. All of the camera work in this video exists because guys like Staff Sergeant Lee have the privilege and skills of keeping up with these guys while they're out in the field working.


It's important to remember that while wars are occurring around the world without the direct involvement of American ground troops, that does not mean that American ground troops are not out in the field preparing to step in on behalf of the United States on a moment's notice.


It is all too easy to look at the conflict in Ukraine through a jaded lens and assume that the involvement of the United States would do nothing to change the picture. After all, Ukrainian ground forces are armed to the teeth with American equipment and there's even a good number of former American veterans on the ground operating in a combat capacity in support of Ukraine. Still, both sides are locked in a deadly stalemate that has devolved into trench warfare due to neither side being able to adapt to emergent battlefield technologies.


Regardless of that stalemate between Ukraine and Russia, everyone everywhere should realize that if America flexes its military power, the world will have to stop and bear witness to it. The United States waged two separate and simultaneous wars for twenty years between Iraq and Afghanistan, and never once had to stop and reinforce either conflict with a mandatory mobilization of conscripted troops.


We kept that same pace for twenty years while holding annual peace time training operations in AFRICOM, CENTCOM, EUCOM, PACOM, NORTHCOM, and SOUTHCOM, while simultaneously holding a combatant command force in readiness in every single one of these areas of operations. No other military in the history of the world has rivaled current American Hegemony, and it's unlikely that any number of nations including China and Russia could stand against it. When you also take into consideration our 29 other NATO allies who would also immediately be involved in any conflict that we were dragged into, there's simply no question of "who would win."


"But, America lost in Iraq and Afghanistan." Strategically, yes. Our country lost the stomach for those conflicts and our General Officer Corps tied the hand of the American warfighter preventing them from doing what needed to be done to achieve mission success. Tactically, America won every battle and operation they fought in both Iraq and Afghanistan. In a conventional war where the rules and objectives are clear, we're looking at a fairly different story, see the first three weeks of the invasion of Iraq as an example.


Is the American military perfect? Not by any means. Is there a single nation on the world that could withstand the combat power of a Carrier Strike Group supported by a Marine Expeditionary Unit? Not even slightly. That's not even factoring in the fact that the four strongest air forces in the world are the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Army. America doesn't brag about their fifth gen fighter jets, we use them to randomly shoot down cheap Chinese spy balloons with $200,000 missiles because we can and we think it's funny.


So go ahead down in the comments Russian trolls. Suck on that Copium as hard as you can. It doesn't change the fact that your military is getting beaten by the DRMO pit scraps the United States and NATO gave Ukraine to prevent Russia from having success in their "Special Military Operation." China is more than welcome to FAFO too, the Chinese human wave attack has been every American machine gunner's private wet dream since the Korean War.


I hope everyone enjoys this video of cool guys doing cool guy shit. Have a nice weekend!
