America's Secret Wars

Somewhere on this planet an American commando is carrying out a mission. Now, say that 70 times and you're done... for the day. Without the knowledge of the American public, a secret force within the U.S. military is undertaking operations in a majority of the world's countries. This new Pentagon power elite is waging a global war whose size and scope has never been revealed, until now.

After a U.S. Navy SEAL put a bullet in Osama bin Laden's chest and another in his head, one of the most secretive black-ops units in the American military suddenly found its mission in the public spotlight. It was atypical. While it's well known that U.S. Special Operations forces are deployed in the war zones of Afghanistan and Iraq, and it's increasingly apparent that such units operate in murkier conflict zones like Yemen and Somalia, the full extent of their worldwide war has remained deeply in the shadows.
What's your opinion? Do you think they've gone a bit far in pre-emptively protecting the U.S. with these black operations?

Please leave a comment.


  1. This isn't all they're doing and it will get worse.

  2. "Do you think they've gone a bit far in pre-emptively protecting the U.S. with these black operations?"

    How would any of us know the answer to that? We have no idea what we have been protected from or from who or how many times.

    This is just a fluff story. It pretty much just says: "Hey, the U.S. does secret things in secret places. Since our country was attacked by muslim extremists, we spend more money against terrorists while being all secret and stuff".

    Who would have thunk it? The U.S. has secret missions. What a revelation.

  3. FWM, I agree it would be impossible to know since we're not privy to the info. But one thing we do see is the total defense spending. This is where a lot of it goes. I'm taking a wild guess and saying it's probably too much.
