      They do the training/mentoring of thirdies thing that has traditionally been an SAS/SBS/SFSG role. My suspicion is that they have severe manning issues in UKSF and this is to ease the pressure on them, much like how manning issues in the rest of the BAF is the reasoning behind the suggestion of introducing conscription that has been a political football in the last year.

        Because The Commandos had a much different job, more similar to the SAS and especially the SFSG.

        I was just watching a video with a Special Forces guy. He was training Afghans, drew some shapes on a board and the Afghans didn't understand because they never went to school and didn't understand what shapes are.

            Because westerners can't comprehend how bad some places in the world are and think that we can sort everything out with a couple of years of involvement. No one actually realises it takes generations to make these changes, because we did it in the 1800's and take it for granted now.

              I do and basically everyone who has ever had to work on the ground in a shithole country does, but boooooy do paper pushing homosexuals and thinkerati get mad when you sit down and show them that every successful "nation building" exercise means a 50+ year commitment. Because it requires them to admit things like how they don't know shit about the history of asia whatsoever, or even that the US was propping up uniparty dictatorships for the entire 20th century.

              South Korea was secretly run by a CULT until a few years ago. Its first legitimate government is a couple years old. Taiwan, similar story. Philippines, worse-off. Vietnam, worse.

              If you look at 20 years and think "forever war," you really just need to gtfo of the human terrain business because you have no reason to think about it.

                South Vietnam was actually better than either South Korea or Taiwan in the 1960s, including in terms of economics and politically and that was with the North Vietnamese with Warsaw Pact and Chinese backing sending columns of guerrillas into the country to blow it to pieces.

                South Korea was actually poorer than North Korea in the 1960s. It wasn't until their hardcore dictator Park Chung Hee started an entire national-level project to develop the country and economy with violence if necessary and it still took 20 years and cost him his life.

            In Vietnam, the Americans were able to train illiterate jungle people to be efficient killers. These guys couldn't count and didn't understand the concept of money, but they were excellent warriors. Based on this experience they probably thought they could train anyone to be warrior.

            Because the US wanted to keep Al Qaeda from using Afghanistan as a base again but had zero balls to just take the meanest most psycho Northern Alliance warlord and put him in power with the only demand being to keep the Taliban and Al-Qaeda under control.

            In the minds of Americans, making an multi-ethnic, multi-lingual decentralized tribal anarchy of illiterate isolated goat herders living in mud huts into a functioning liberal republican democracy in just 10 or 20 years at the longest makes more sense than what I just described in the first paragraph.

        Conscription's a nothingburger that's only popular with the boomer demographics and with there being a boomer civil war over Ukraine you're not going to get enough boomers together to agree to a war or conflict to conscript for that would impact the vote.

      Green Berets basically.

      Train, organise and lead allied militias forces. Whilst providing force multipliers such as drones, calling in fires and by conducting DA.

      They do the training/mentoring of thirdies thing that has traditionally been an SAS/SBS/SFSG role. My suspicion is that they have severe manning issues in UKSF and this is to ease the pressure on them, much like how manning issues in the rest of the BAF is the reasoning behind the suggestion of introducing conscription that has been a political football in the last year.

      >that has traditionally been an SAS/SBS/SFSG role

      Not really. It's been done forever in an ad-hoc way, by SF yes but also by regular soldiers. The battalions being converted were essentially doing this job already btw.

      >My suspicion is that they have severe manning issues in UKSF and this is to ease the pressure on them

      The reason for it is clearly described in the recent defense reviews. UKSF is prioritising on inter state competition. Lots of shenanigans in the espionage world and degrading hostile states 'in the grey zone'. The Ranger regiment, as well as the RMs new structure, are to continue the weed trimming operations in the third world.

      The name is stupid. Ranger might have British origins but everybody thinks of modern US rangers. Who also do a very different job.

      Its true. UK rangers are there to organise train and lead allied militias.

      16 AIr Assault brigade IS the army commandos. All the initial WW2 bong paras were commandos, and they continue to be thought of as being in the same bracket as RM, or better.

      SFSG doesn't have any selection process at all. It's essentially a para battalion reinforced with an RM company and a platoon from the RAF. All paras serve a 2 year rotation to SFSG at some point in their careers.

    Because they're not Commandos by trade or by definition of their role.
    The Royal Navy is responsible for Commando training and operations. About 15 years ago they tried adding an Army Commando battalion (1 RIFLES) under 3 Commando Brigade and it didn't work out.

        Because it wasn't a well funded or planned initiative.
        The Navy wanted an extra battalion, but they didn't want to have it done the way it was done where they were given a Bn of light infantry from the Army.
        At the time Royal Marines Commando were going through a bit of an identity crisis since operations in Iraq and Afghanistan meant they were basically just light infantry like everybody else. When it came time to integrate an actual Light Infantry Bn they couldn't really work out whether training them as Marines, or training them as Commandos was more important to the function of the Brigade so it was a bit piecemeal doing both but not really having the resources to either and maintain cohesion. It was really only an initial couple of cadres from 1 RIFLES who went though the commando course and earned a slightly different shade of green beret and "Army Commando" mudguards.

        Naturally the Navy/Marines will blame it squarely on The Rifles and say they didn't rise to the challenge, or weren't good enough and fit enough to be Marines Commandos; and they're not totally wrong. But like most Royal Navy initiatives it's likely the whole things was just a scheme to inflate their budget and skim money of the top to buy more shiny boats, and they couldn't actually deliver on what they claimed to want in having a bigger Commando Brigade.
        Their latest scam is rebranding the Royal Marines as small-unit special ops types who need expensive gear - modern day Commandos. So less manpower but more expensive equipment and technology they can skim money off the top from
