    Found a fine info site on the unit.

    Since Europe has seen the benefits of a multi natioanl special reaction force, like the First Special Force (THe German Named Devils Brigade) what are your thoughts as a tax payer and professional on the reastablishment of this force between Canada and the USA, perhaps even Mexico. For a summary, take the cream of the cream and create a new Brigade of 2,200 men. Multi role with the latest equipment from the Land Warrior Project.

    I'm dubious. It's hard enough sometimes to get all of the American Armed Forces to work well together, how would it be with troops from one or two other armies thrown into the pot? The troops themselves may very well perform brilliantly, but with them come the upper echelons of their home armed force, and therein lies potential trouble. More to the point, I also don't see the need for such a force, or what its mission might be.
