    @PARIKRAMA Any reason why we got UK and France in the "americas" section and not in Europe?

    Because historically this section was US and Europe but then someone put Turkey in it, then it was pointed out that Turkey was mostly (95+%) in the Middle East, and that far more of Russia was in Europe. So rather than just move Turkey to The Middle East they turned this section into the Americas, without moving the threads, so now we have 3 Asia sections and Turkey is apparently on the American continent along with France and Britain and a Europe and Russia section.

    The original sections made far more sense:

    But maybe add some, e.g.

    US & Europe (including Anglosphere, Canada, Australia, New Zealand.)
    Central and South America
    Africa
    China and Asia
    Russia and ex-USSR (excluding EU states).

    Now French SF just look like every other NATO SOF unit (ops-core, multi-cam etc etc), where's the French flair? :D :D

    French SF were always a pleasure to see as they had their own unique side, it's a bit of a shame that they have lost that and now look all but indistinguishable to pretty much any other such unit in the West.

    Yes,ops-core multicam and such are becoming the norm now. But in my opinion,they look way better right now than they used to be. :D

    "Welcome to our near vicinity. Afghanistan remains an area of vital interest in the War on Terror. As centre of terror lies in the Af-Pak region, it is necessary to dissuade the criminal elements which are supporting these terror elements in these two countries from allowing them both a space and the necessary infrastructure, to bring their nefarious and inhumane designs to conclusions successfully. As such, both coercive as well as incentive based diplomacy, remains the need of the hour. Towards this end, the contribution of military forces by France towards establishment of rule of law and supremacy of a democratically elected government in these two countries, is highly welcomed."

    Perhaps this statement in offing?
