Security is a major concern for every home, let alone every government. There are people out there who are not satisfied with what they have, or just have issues with us for whatever reason, and the best we can do for ourselves is to employ security measures and hope that they work.
Governments, on the other hand, cannot hope that enemy countries or terror organizations will not plan to enter their borders and cause unspeakable damage. Governments have to set aside men and women whose job is to protect and defend their borders, and to fight all sorts of evils, both from within and from outside.
Special Forces come out of the need for specialized skills in situations the regular law enforcement officers are not equipped to deal with effectively. Many countries saw the need for special task forces after the horrific events of the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre, where a Palestinian terror organization took hold of 11 Israeli Olympians and killed them, together with a German police officer. The rescue efforts by the German police only led to further bloodshed, a situation that would probably have turned out differently if there was a special task force in Germany at the time to deal with that kind of unfortunate situation.
With the growing need to protect all citizens from terrorists and other criminals out there, governments have formed the following and many more elite task forces. In your opinion, which other elite task force deserves to be on this list?
15 BOPE - Brazil
14 Special Services Group - Pakistan
13 MARCOS - India
12 Alpha Group - Russia
11 GIS - Italy
10 Unidad de Operaciones Especiales - Spain
9 EKO Cobra - Australia
8 Joint Task Force 2 - Canada
7 JW GROM - Poland
6 The Delta Force - USA
5 GSG 9 - Germany
4 National Gendarmerie Intervention Group (GIGN) - France
3 Shayetet 13 - Israel
2 Navy SEALs - USA
1 SAS - Great Britain
No other elite special force in Europe or the world can claim to be better than the British SAS, owing to their development, use, and improvements on modern and special combat tactics. The SAS stands for Special Air Service, and numerous special service around the world model their training and activities to follow in the footsteps of the British SAS. Formed in 1941, the forces then were known to operate behind enemy lines, supporting resistant movements and foiling the enemy's plans. The training that a recruit has to go through in order to become part of the SAS is extremely difficult, since in addition to the running, the swimming, and the push and pull-ups, someone has to survive in the jungle, endure 36 hours of brutal interrogation, and training by MI5 and MI6 on espionage.
