These are the guys who put "Great" back into Great Britain

SAS kill hundreds of terrorists in 'secret war' against al-Qaeda in Iraq - Telegraph I have always loved the Special Air Services.
More than 3,500 insurgents have been "taken off the streets of Baghdad" by the elite British force in a series of audacious "Black Ops" over the past two years.
Part of the effort that reduced suicide bombings from 150 per month to 2 per month. SAS casualties: 30 injured, 6 dead.

All of this is even more amazing given that a lawyer sits on the planning board for each operation.

SAS teaches the west how to be commandos.

SAS even has K-9 units that make high-altitude/high-opening (long-range insertion) jumps.
