The term commando, in English, means a specific kind of individual soldier or military unit. In contemporary usage, commando usually means elite light infantry and/or special forces units, specialised in amphibious landings, parachuting, rappelling and similar techniques, to conduct and effect attacks. Originally “a commando” was a type of combat unit, as opposed to an individual in that unit. In other languages, commando and kommando denote a “command”, in the sense of a military unit.
In the militaries of most countries, commandos are distinctive in that they specialise in assault on conventional military targets.
So the guys that boarded your boat were like that?
Also come to think of it I did post something about Israel once. When arguing with SDW about the Iraq war his justification for our attack was that Iraq had violated UN resolutions. What he didn't take into account was that many countries had done this and guess who had the worst record for this?
That still doesn't mean I hate them. Just stating a fact. It was the irony that a friend to the US was the worst.
