No mention of the SAS in there Codders, and if that clown John Reid says it was spearheaded by British Forces, it probably means we lent them a Land Rover. Great news all the same; perhaps the old bugger will listen to the advice of the Foreign Office next time and stay at home instead of risking our troops' lives trying to rescue him

There usually is no mention of the SAS - they usually sort out other people's shit and they never get the credit!!!

It was years after German police stormed a hijacked plane and recued everyone that it turned out they were SAS in German Police uniforms!!!

During the Afghan war a Russian HIND crash landed - the Yanks got to hear about it and offered a reward for the bits. At the same time Britain had already recovered the whole wreckage on the backs of Donkeys!!!

SAS Strike again ?? Donít know what you mean by that there is no doubt the SAS do a very good job but it seems in this case there was nothing to strike at!!
Them hostages had been abandoned as soon as a couple of there mates had been captured the rest of there pals had it on there toes .
And the SBS are the real SP. forces they do far more and let the SAS take the credit for it.
