Navy Seal is an elite special ops military unit. It consists of over 2,000 highly skilled and well-trained people that are specialists in the quiet killing, diversion, night actions, sabotage, counter-terrorism and many other, probably even more secret actions. SEAL Team 7 is a part of this elite organization. Exactly the same team that was sent back home recently, due to its misbehavior, that included alcohol abuse.

Straight from Iraq, back to San Diego.

The Commander lost confidence in the team’s ability to accomplish the mission,” the US Special Operations Command said in a statement. Boozing guys from Team 7 had no regard for discipline and training, and what the Navy got, was “a perceived deterioration of good order and discipline within the team during non-operational periods,” like the command said.

Team 7 consists of 20 members. Some of them were abusing alcohol, which led to a general lack of discipline in the group.

"Naval Special Warfare insists on a culture where ethical adherence is equally important to tactical proficiency," said Capt. Tamara Lawrence, a spokesperson for Naval Special Warfare Command. Lawrence. "Good order and discipline is critical to the mission. The loss of confidence in this case outweighed potential operational risk," she added.

This is not the only and the first incident with US special military units that happened in the last years. There were also cases of much serious nature. Some units in previous years were accused of murder, drug smuggling, rape and war crimes. But Chief Master Sergeant Gregory A. Smith, from US Southern Command resumes it: "We have challenges.

We have fraying.

But, are these things systemic? No. Is there room for improvement? Is any one ethical breach too much? Yes.”

My personal comment on this? The Germans and Japs during WW2 were all loaded on amphetamines and killed without mercy and like maniacs, ISIS bandits are also known for their abuse of speed. But alcohol? Come on, in the combat it only serves well the Russians.
