They really like those Para FAL's.

I'd like to get a DSA Para Congo, but $2k it will be a while.

Well, this is a search & destroy operation, the goal is cleaning most of the favelas for 2014.

I heard about this. One of the things I think is going to be interesting to watch is how they balance between law enforcement and military counterinsurgency tactics, and what lessons they're applying not only from past experience, but also from Mexico's struggle against the cartels. It's really, REALLY tricky to fight gangs who use guerrilla tactics, and the LE/military tactical balance is delicate. BOPE has more experience in this type of combat than almost any other armed unit in the world (including the U.S.), but if they're working with Marines, then maybe they're throwing the book out on this op.
