    Special forces soldiers should have an advantage. Part of their training involves abseiling down cliffs. Some at least should fall whilst abseiling, and at the bottom of their fall they will encounter a cave. Once they train in the lost manual they find within the cave, their fighting ability will improve dramatically.

    Its hard for us sitting in front of computers to comprehend this bit. I know a special forces commander who told me he saw 2 of his 'best in training supersoldiers' get killed in front of his eyes because they couldn't pull the trigger when a live human was the target. Given his background, I have no reason to doubt him.

    OT: i have heard that some special forces use very sick animals as live targets. After these animals are shot, they are passed to the medical doctors to operate on them to see whether these animals can be saved. Cruel?
