SECRET INTELLIGENCE SERVICE
“The emergence and spread of terrorism in the United Kingdom has its historical preconditions, which means that it is connected with internal economic, political, social, ethnic and religious antagonisms within, as well as with rapidly expanding external terrorist threats, including and very importantly; those faced by the entire global community.”

SPECIAL FORCES IN COUNTER-TERRORISM ENGAGEMENT
(C-I) Operational Field Skills Intelligence Cycle – Direction/Action
Special Forces Training
(C-I) My brief was to produce a very short description of what is detailed in this Section. If you consider what the Special Forces role is, you will understand that my being concise with regard to what is multifaceted by necessity, and confined within certain parameters that have to be defined precisely for what they are, is not so easy to do without appearing to be neglectful of paying attention to all the fundamentals.
I shall continue making additions, so do please bear in mind that this description will become much more detailed and expanded. Please and in addition, let me reiterate, there are no commercial elements – we are not a commercial enterprise.
If you are an animal hunter exit this page and the site. We do NOT offer sanctuary to animal hunters; we do NOT connect on any level. If you are an animal hunter and want to exploit bravado do it with who can fight back and not from a distance. We see animal hunters befitting the designation;
USELESS FUCKING SCUM – Exactly as we do terrorists * (see photo)
>>EXIT NOW AND DO NOT RETURN<<
* Terrorist scum, incompatible with life
Now let’s get back to the issue
I shall continue by saying that you must realize that this is reality, so welcome to REALITY. This is neither make-believe nor is it wishful thinking presented as drama. ** By ‘reality’ I refer to the context which is most unlike others; its obvious danger to the lives of personnel concerned and the duty thereof; which is to protect the lives of those who are likely, or almost certain to die if ‘the situation’ was not appropriately dealt with.
Attention : For obvious reasons we cannot possibly disclose the identities of our chaps, hence and to avoid missing anything out, the photographs are mostly, though not exclusively, foreign operatives to whom we share a very close if not exact parallel. These soldiers are actively fighting terror, as are we, they are the most highly trained and capable in the world and have our utmost respect.
** In your engaging with us here, we want you to have a three dimensional experience and this, reflect the complex, multifaceted by nature and human domain, NOT what is the commonplace attributes of films – such that the fantasy heroes, the choreographed fight scenes, the plastic situations and the like are the norm. We cover this misidentifying trend many times here and there as you’ll find out. It is pertinent to say that we encourage you to join the British Army, which is the best in the world and begin on the path to greatness in its proper and most admirable form. The Special Forces roles are not now as distinct as they might appear, as the requirement for the most highly trained and highly regarded personnel has begun shifting by necessity.
The intelligence cycle is typically described as being: collection of information – processing of that information – analysis – integration- planning and direction/action. You can see where the Special Forces role resides, also what precedes it and what it is that is passed along (the nature of the threat, the order to deal with it).
To be brief for now: The Special Forces operative typically has a very high IQ, has often mastered more than one language, has had to develop a wide range of problem-solving skills. I thought I would mention this first because the cultivation of the intellect plays a vital part in action. Also, think that in order to master and develop the requisite mental strategies that underpin highly dangerous scenarios, a very particular mind has to be applied – action too has complex attributes.
As for the latter (re; complex attributes), there is much consideration placed upon the physical hurdles that present and each of these contain their own very distinct features (for example, urban labyrinths/parts of buildings, terrain behind enemy lines) which require tenacity and insight on behalf of the operative. Communication and team skills (buddy system) are vital and again, this goes without saying.
Modern weapons, equipment and various kit are constantly in emergence; these require great skill in their application. It goes without saying (I like to repeat myself) that the Special Forces operative has to be physically capable to a degree that most people never contemplate, nor have to. Skills in attack and defensive fighting underpin and are learned until second nature.
My interest now is in the psychological, I refer for example to; how one shifts from what would once have elicited a fear response, to a state that does not. Think about this, because it is very interesting. What does the fearless state involve? What is it in the killing context, that is, being where the enemy is certain to fight back? I discuss this in my articles in various Sections within this presentation.
Though multifaceted by requirement, the overriding reason for the Section is to unequivocally tell those who are determined to harm via acts of terror, by appeal to whatever psycho-pathology, that there will only be ONE outcome. Our duty reflects the nature and the extent of threat to our place within the global community in the present time.
So, what might the Regimental selection procedure for Special Forces involve? I intend a summary of the program because by describing it the precedent is set for all that is the future requirement.
I am grateful for the opportunity to display Special Forces operatives of various nations and whose skills and dedication, whatever else is the case, are the same. In this, I can take examples from what others are doing and then later, focus exclusively on our own operatives. Incidentally and just for your information, the Spetsnaz (Спецназ) Special Forces (Russian Armed Forces) who are mentioned herein, was created and operates under the direction of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff, so it is also called Spetsnaz GRU. The Spetsnaz consists of the Army Special Forces and Navy Special Forces, which is not dissimilar to the UK. Each of these components was created independently of each other and has a history of development and objectives.
* Note. We think it prudent to talk about others – foreign (rather than ignore them altogether), because in so doing, there is no risk of revealing some facet or other we should not. As stated, the parallels are very evident and there is much to be learned via such revealing. Here is a little more information regarding one particular foreign force, already introduced here:
Briefly, on October 24, 1950 the minister of the USSR Military Directive signed number ORG/2/395/832 marked CONFIDENTIAL It led to the creation of units and special units (SPN) (deep exploration or prospecting for special purposes) for action deep behind enemy lines. Their task was: to explore for, and if necessary, a violation of command and control, elimination of commanders army, air force and navy and political leaders of the aggressor, to destroy command and control, missile launchers, aircraft of strategic aviation, nuclear submarines, disrupt communications, energy, destroy transport communications, wreak havoc and make chaos in military and governance of the aggressor. Spetsnaz units of the GRU played a huge role in the Afghan war, and then in operations on the territory of the Chechen Republic.
The UK equivalent, though not exclusively so, is the Special Air Service (SAS) as you must know and because they are here at home, as it were, I can discuss much more extensively later on. *Also do bear in mind though, that there is a tactic in that revealing what others are doing to the depth I intend, especially where such a parallel (and sameness) is the case, does not breach confidentiality criteria.
* By reference to ‘depth’ I am referring to real time operations – where the skills outlined below can be observed in process of execution along with the outcomes.
Here are a few more illustrations – we have many of course. The Secret Intelligence Service ‘Operational Field Skills’ are detailed below.
Please note; that following consultation and much consideration it was decided that we could not, for now, offer the content of the skills list. We live in extremely dangerous times and thus, making available what could in the wrong hands constitute a threat to safety is of paramount consideration. Given this, the list will demonstrate the sheer enormity that is the reality of the special operations soldier and so, within the counter-terrorism requirement

In brief. SAS :
The SAS was founded in 1941 as a regiment, and later reconstituted as a corps in 1950. The unit undertakes a number of roles but here, to focus on counter-terrorism, direct action and hostage rescue.
The corps comprises; 22 Special Air Service Regiment, the regular component under the operational command of United Kingdom Special Forces, and 21 Special Air Service Regiment (Reserve) and 23 Special Air Service Regiment (Reserve) – reserve units under the operational command of 1st Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Brigade.
The Special Air Service traces its origins to 1941 and to the Second World War. It was reformed as part of the Territorial Army in 1947, named the 21st Special Air Service Regiment.

Before leaving you must:
1. Make sure your equipment will not make noise
2. Check whether the sight was not lost on the machine.
3.You must merge with the terrain in which you have to face. Do not forget about ears, neck, eyelids, also hands. All of the shiny parts on equipment should not shine at all-use winding cloth, tape or paint. Ensure everyone is masked.
4. Weight of equipment; take this to consideration, do not overload yourself. Can be recommended not to upload in the the forward, lateral and escorted back by heavy backpacks, ie. the bulk of the core.
5. Cognize the map of the area in which you are acting, You should know the neighborhood and beyond the immediate area, There is no time to go blindly, memorize as you go, in what direction are traveled landmarks.
1. Do not forget about the outposts. Even if only three people, you should organize advanced outposts. . 3.
2. Do not waste conversation or gestures. In the forest, especially in the mountains a voice is heard from far and so is radio hiss. More, use a headset.
3. Dim conventional radio signals by pressing the release – the importance of which agreed in advance.
4. Do not touch the branches of trees.
5. Listen without opening your mouth (so better inaudible). Perhaps you hear some strange sound – is not typical of the forest, or notice of which is not seen in motion.
If there was an unconscious sense of danger, do not wait, give the signal to the group to the defense and the transition to a lower level. Perhaps wrongly and you will appear ridiculous, but better so than you and your companions being dead because you noticed, but did not understand its threat. Distinctive sounds; crackling twigs underfoot, climbing person, joining store knock equipment, sound digging trenches, etc. characteristic silhouettes; objects – motion of human body parts, artificial structures, etc.
6. You should not rest when tired, but after every 8-10 hours you should arrange a rest for at least an hour.
7. Rest should be in places hidden from observation, not as determined by the map as potentially suitable, having the ability to stealth waste, and with good view. Location in a ‘parking lot’ should take into account the lessons of perimeter defense. Always use the same place. Be perfectly camouflaged, have the radio with headset on opportunities for the silent weapon might abound. If parking for over an hour, you should not be lazy – you should equip a trench for shooting. You should also use mines, alarm systems to cover most of the possible ways of approach to the camp, and preferably along the entire perimeter. In the camp – not to loiter aimlessly, not talk idly, not make noise. It is advisable not to use fire for cooking. If necessary, make a fire in the pit secretive with chimney, if possible. Use dry ‘pioneer fire’ which produce as much heat and light as is necessary to cook food.
The whole group should never congregate near the fire, and nor should the whole group eat together – at the beginning eats the core group, divided into groups, alternately, each in its place, then the people of care, with the change thereof. The cleaning of weapons should also be engaged alternately. Sleep should be no more than half of the group in one period according to the plan of defense of the camp. In the observed maximum stealth, you must leave no trace of your presence, and all the rubbish (including ****).
8. For surveillance of the enemy terrain, use a pipe scout (manual periscope) you substitute your head when viewing from an enemy bullet.
9. Smoke bombs, can be used to smoke an enemy while storming of a building, if entering into an ambush, to evacuate the wounded, and during the withdrawal. Take into account the wind direction.
10.Wear protective eye glasses, they will protect your eyes from branches in the forest.
11. Elbow and knee pads are necessary when working in urban situations. Do not crawl under the climb.
12. No shining watches, preferably black or olive green color, with phosphorescent calibration. You can sew fabric to cover and wear on the inside of your wrist, so less the likelihood that you betray yourself.
13. Do not hurt to have a small mirror, it can be used for building a view, the protection of the opening of a corridor, not substituting in it, being in room (mirror located on the floor in the hallway at an angle allowing view aforesaid)
14. Have a completely silent pouch it’s useful for example when tactical reloading at night in the woods or in a building with the possibility of finding the enemy.
15. Have secretly arranged a secondary weapon (knife, pistol).
16. Ask to see, read a book on first aid for different situations. Everyone should have an anesthetic, 1-2 individual dressing package, a tourniquet held together with tape on the butt.
Also, painkillers, should be worn uniformly in one place so as not to waste time searching in the event of injury. It should also be in the group have vials with solutions NaCl, have a means of increasing pressure (dexamethasone, dopamine) to be able to inject into a vein, and to connect the system. The point is not complicated, but it is extremely important, depends on whether your friend will live up to providing them with competent assistance or die in the field of shock and blood loss.
17. Be vaccinated against hepatitis A and B, tetanus, and from those diseases which are most common in the region in which you have to act.
18. Have an adequate supply of tablets for water purification have a filter for the purification of water.
19. Have a portable emergency (NAE). Which includes:
1. 2-3 condoms (placed in a sock, hold about a litre of water)
2. The water purification tablets
3. Stimulants (caffeine pills benzoate)
6. In the box except for matches, magnetized needle (use as compass), a razor blade
7. ****** wrapped fishing line All this should be sealed in a knotted condom, or a sealed plastic bag. NAE does not take up much space, there is not the asking, but can be of great help under certain situations.
20. Small repair kit (pair of needles, strong thread, tape, spare laces).
21. Woolen socks in a sealed package (tied package)
22. Prepare to work in the extreme cold season. buy requisite chemicals (eg. company *****) . In result of chemical reaction, depending on the models, they provide heat for 2-8 hours. From a piece sleeping pad and insulation thermal you can lie down, sit on the cold ground. Take care – stay alive – KEEP THE UNIT ALIVE
