Quote from a US Navy SEAL training with the SBS: “There’s the easy way and then there’s the British way.”

“…I was 19 years old, sitting in a bush waiting to kill my first terrorist. I was a member of the most elite Special Forces unit in the world, and I had to wonder what the hell I was doing there…”

“…the time I took Anderson Cooper (CNN) into the mountains of the Congo through bandit country in search of a rebel general…” 

“…Nick Robertson (CNN) and I were stuck in the middle of a demonstration in Falluja (Sunni Triangle of death) with 2000 men firing guns in the air. Our cameraman was kidnapped but we got him back. A week later they hung the charred bodies of Blackwater from a bridge…”

“…I was in Liberia, held in a checkpoint by a dozen child soldiers who were high on booze and drugs and armed to the teeth and only my wits were going to get us out of there…” 

“…Nippy was desperately holding onto the submarine’s periscope as it cut through the waves, dragging his boat which was tied to my boat with 2 other SBS members in them…”
