US Commandos Set to Counter North Korean Nuclear Sites

U.S. special operations forces are set to conduct operations against North Korean nuclear, missile, and other weapons of mass destruction sites in any future conflict, the commander of Special Operations Command told Congress Tuesday.

Army Gen. Raymond A. Thomas stated in testimony to a House subcommittee that Army, Navy, and Air Force commandos are based both permanently and in rotations on the Korean peninsula in case conflict breaks out.

The special operations training and preparation is a warfighting priority, Thomas said in prepared testimony. There are currently around 8,000 special operations troops deployed in more than 80 countries.

"We are actively pursuing a training path to ensure readiness for the entire range of contingency operations in which [special operations forces], to include our exquisite [countering weapons of mass destruction] capabilities, may play a critical role," he told the subcommittee on emerging threats.

In 1966-1968 we sent in agents all the time to monitor their military strength sometimes we got caught sometimes they got caught. This has been going on since the cease fire 1953. We have lost several thousand soldiers since 1953 . Don't under estimate the North Korean military ground soldiers. They are Night fighters , surprise is their game. They have no mercy , hit and run.
How do I know? I was there. I put them up there with the Seals or special forces.
