In the tons of videos showing various special forces and their training, today we found something we could identify as the Taliban training video and some sort of so-called special forces. To defeat your enemy, you need to know him well. From this video, you can learn a lot about them, and to be honest, it looks like they are training for recess. Most have stated it looks as if they are competing for a cheer competition but given this author’s proclivity for dating cheerleaders and his failure to get out of going to their competitions, it’s quite clear the Taliban commandos wouldn’t be invited to any cheer competition.
Let’s not insult the great sport of cheerleading, by claiming these Taliban “commandos” are ready for any one of the teams in the “Bring It On” movies. But, most of us, could remember being told that the bad guys study us and adapt. They’ll use our tactics against us. After watching this video, I’m pretty sure all of that was a lie and in most cases I’m not sure it will ever happen.
The facts around the video are not clear. The men on footage can be seen sparring with wooden sticks and struggling through group press-up routines. At one point, a insurgent can be seen struggling to keep pace with others during a choreographed press-up routine.
Another bizarre scene in the footage shows dozens of aspiring commandos in combat gear jogging around a small clearing. According to the Military Times, the clip was captured in Afghanistan, but it is not clear exactly where in the country it was filmed or when.
