ISIS is never going to win their “war” against the west. Here is a hilarious recruitment video that tries to show ISIS performing Navy SEAL type tactics. However, their attempt at becoming Navy SEALs falls short.
It seems that these ISIS “Navy SEALs” skipped BUD/S Training and just assumed that sneaking up on their enemy under the water is all it takes.
The video also has the voices of children singing, “In the name of Allah” playing in the background.
ISIS uses social media, videos and the internet to recruit members. So while they’ll keep pumping out videos like this, we’ll keep dropping bombs on them.
Unlike ISIS, Navy SEALs are regarded as one of the most elite special operations forces in the world as they have learned to operate in all environments, such as sea, air and land. Their history and origin dates back to World War II as part of the Amphibious Scout and Raider School when the Navy realized the need for undercover reconnaissance of coastal defenses and landing beaches. These units played an integral part in the amphibious landings at Normandy in 1944.
The Navy SEALs were later created as the United States recognized the need for unconventional warfare and special operations to counter guerilla warfare. In March 1961, Admiral Arleigh Burke, the Chief of Naval Operations, recommended the creation of counter-guerilla units.
The Navy SEALs played a crucial part in the killing of former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in 2011, when a small group of Navy SEALs from the Naval Special Warfare Development Group raided bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan during a CIA operation.
Navy SEALs undergo most rigorous mental and physical training before earning the Special Warfare Operator Naval Rating and the Navy Enlisted Classification (NEC) 5326 Combatant Swimmer (SEAL). The attrition rate for those who attempt Navy SEAL training is roughly 80 percent.
Navy SEAL operations are typically kept secret due to their nature.
In July, 2017, Mosul, ISIS’ stronghold in Iraq, was liberated after a months-long campaign conducted by the U.S.-led coalition and Iraqi forces. They have continued to lose ground in the Middle East, but are still active in trying to recruit new members with the use of propaganda, such as the video below.
Have a good laugh while this video is still on YouTube. Often times, ISIS attacks videos that embarrass them, like this one.
