Desant warfighting is the act of carrying out combat in the enemy rear. The
Soviets/Russians call it “desanty”. The term encompasses special warfare,
but any well trained infantry unit and some armored troops can carry out desant
warfare. The reader of this e-book will begin by learning the secrets of desant
warfare and special operations. Then, the different desant philosophies of
the British, Israelis, Germans, Soviets and American special forces will be
explained. The variety of special warfare units fielded by the major nations is
also objectively compared in this e-book. The difference in the SAS, Spetsnaz,
Delta Force, and a variety of Israeli units is factually clarified in Desant
Warfighting. The fact that five Israeli desant, special forces units participated
in the Gulf War (Operation Desert Storm) is first revealed and explained in
Desant Warfighting. In addition, US Navy Seals will be factually exposed as a
desant unit that has been, at least partially, a product of exaggerated publicity.
“In January 16, 1991, a day after the UN ultimatum to Iraq expired, the U.S. began massive aerial assault against Iraqi
targets. Less then 24 hours later Iraq sent eight Scud land-to-land missiles into Israel, targeting mainly the heavily
populated Tel-Aviv city area. After the Scud assault, the Israeli Air Force (IAF), which was already on high alert, began
preparations for a long-range retaliation attack. However, fearing for the sake of its already fragile coalition, the U.S.
begged that Israel not take any offensive measures against Iraq. The U.S. promised that it would make a special effort
to track down and destroy the mobile Scud launchers. The world was told:”Israel must be kept out of the Gulf War.” The
left wing media would have loved to smear Israel.
Then a top secret deal was made so that the left wing media never knew. In return for the Israeli’s official, or public, non-
participation in the crisis, Israel received U.S. permission to deploy several special forces/desant teams in the American
sector of the Scud hunt. The Israeli teams deployed north of the Baghdad-Amman highway, better known as "Scud
Boulevard". The Israeli desant teams deployed in an absolutely covert manner, without any interface whatsoever with
other coalition forces. The teams operated sterily, without leaving any trace that might identify them as Israeli.
Shortly after the U.S. permission was granted to Mossad, a few Israeli teams from several different desant units were
inserted into Iraq by CH53 transport helicopters. Israeli direct action operations inside Iraq then began.
Quite ironically, intelligence gathered by Mossad and Sayeret Matkal operatives, inserted months earlier into Iraq
without US permission, was used as an Israeli bargaining chip in negotiations with the Americans. That desant coup was
one of the main reasons why the Israelis were authorized to operate inside Iraq.
The Israeli special forces teams, that were sent into Iraq, were from the following units: Sayeret Shaldag, Sayeret
Maglan, one reserve team from Unit 669, Sayeret Matkal, and several teams from classified electronic warfare and
The Israeli teams deployed north of the Baghdad-Amman Highway, better known as "Scud Boulevard". The Israeli
desant teams deployed in an absolutely covert manner, without any interface whatsoever with other coalition forces. The
teams operated sterily, without leaving any trace that might identify them as Israeli. In the meantime, Mossad, Sayeret
Matkal and the Baghdad-Amman Highway converged in the Iraqi desert far from the prying eyes of the left wing media.”

A more secretive, but equally famous special warfare institution, the
US Army Special Forces, has a different desant profile. Their record of special warfare achievement in winning the first
round of the war in Afghanistan may someday be recognized as exploits surpassing those of Alexander the Great. The reader
is invited to view the real facts and make up his mind in Desant Warfighting.
