Norway is so sick and tired of hearing about ISIS that it’s sending its most feared — and most famed — “Punisher” troops (AKA the Telemark Battalion) to northern Iraq. The troops use the famous skull logo from the Marvel comic character “The Punisher.” Chris Kyle was also known for this logo. These guys don’t fuck around, either. They have been known to strike fear into opposing foes — probably stemming from their Viking ancestry.
About 50 soldiers from the Telemark Battalion will head to Iraq in early April, where they will help train Kurdish soldiers to become ISIS killing machines.
From Daily Mail:
Around 50 soldiers from Telemark will be heading to the city of Irbil in northern Iraq to train Kurdish forces to help them in their fight against Islamic State, the Norwegian ministry of defence has confirmed. It is thought the mission will begin in early April.
Just how tough are these “Punisher” troops from Norway? They are pretty vicious. Don’t take my word for it, however. Let Charles Stanley, a former American soldier who provided logistics to these guys for a Bosnia mission, tell you just how much ISIS should fear these men.
“ISIS should fear them for sure. They didn’t hold back in work or play and when they went to the task of battle that was all of the business they cared for until the mission was completed,” said Stanley. He also noted their assistance will be a huge asset to Kurdish troops in battling the extremists.
‘This well-trained and disciplined unit of Norwegian soldiers would be able to make very short work of any ISIS soldiers they encountered.’
It also helps that these guys are notorious for their hatred of the Taliban. If you remember, these are the same guys who spray-painted the skull on homes of suspected Taliban members back in 2010. I have a feeling that we’ll be seeing a lot more skulls in the near future. Go get ’em, boys..
