    Also about the SEALS, I imagine that's fairly standard. Special forces blokes were all over the Olympics here, and I think they have a regular team based in the capital for events.
    I don't think the military is supposed to meddle in police business are they?
    I don't know about America because their SWAT teams are fairly specialised, but over here the police aren't trained to military standards. I know that in Britain they have SF blokes that do stints in London for big events on the off chance it all kicks off.

    And even in the states seeing how fat some of their SWAT blokes are, I'm guessing their SEAL guys are a different calibre and it came to it (I'm thinking Mumbai style, which is much more possible in the states due to the availability of weapons) you'd want your best blokes. They don't interfere, the police just know they are there and can be used.
