ok in military terms, (i know the US are on paper)!!

but they were in the 1960's and they couldn't even beat a country with WW1 technology (vietnam).

seriously, in your view, WAR_ON_WAR (with every country), who would come out on top??

--

maybe my biased point of view but i think britain, i believe NO COUNTRY could beat us in warware, our troops are the best trained troops the world (falklands 1980's, both gulf wars, peacekeeping) - our past, 99% of all wars we've won.

once we get the type45's in operation and the carriers/subs (Rule, Britannia! Britannia rules the waves! Britons never never never shall become slaves).

airforce some of the best trained pilots/aircraft in the world.

----

but seriously i want this to be an open subject, because i think america are useless on their own (no offence) but i really think that, i don't rate their troops at all!!

we all seen it on skynews in iraq, british troops "BANG" (on target) then they get on with the job!!

americian troops (friendly fires), shoot 100 missles off whilist saying 'WHOOOOOOOO' useless, + compare thier troops in bagdad to british in basra!!

so yeah, in your HONEST point of view, regardsless of your nationality.

whos the best ALLROUND military???

US
UK
France
Russia
China
Isreal
Other

?

I know I shouldn't bother posting here, but I can't help myself.


I am English, so I represent Britain. While we are definitely one of the more advanced military powers, we don't have that many actual troops to fight a war with.


The British Army had a reported strength of 103,780 in October 2004 [1], including approximately 7,600 women. The Royal Navy had a strength of 36,810 and is in charge of the United Kingdom's independent strategic nuclear arm, which consists of four Trident missile submarines, while the Royal Marines provide commando units for amphibious assault and for specialist reinforcement forces in and beyond the NATO area. The Royal Air Force had a strength of 49,280 - though this figure is set to be reduced by as much as a fifth by the end of the decade. This puts the total number of serving personnel at around 190,000 (not including civilians). This number is supported by reserve forces, including over 35,000 from the Territorial Army.


The power of the British Armed Forces lies with technology and force projection, of which it is second only to America.

I just like the fact that France was listed as a choice. Is there something I don't know about their military might?

I'd have to rank them right up there with the Dutch. Sorry, I'm not trying to insult the Dutch.

I know how to solve this...let's just have a huge, every country for itself, war. That'll settle the matter.


Now let's see if I can turn my sarcasm off again.

Just saying you couldn't compare either military to the likes of USA, China, Russia. Not trying to put one or the other down. It's just kinda out there to put them on the list. I guess it depends on what all entails the French military now that Europe is unified. That may have some implications to military might.

We could have won Vietnam, at the time of the pullout the US army was actually doing well but the public wanted out. And then you have the nuclear option but that was overkill.

I disagree completely..
If you're saying that the French military is inferior to the chinese/Russian/american military, then its like saying that the israeli military is inferior tot the Iranian/Iraqi(pre 1990) military.
The french force maybe small in comparision but its top notch..and totally self sustainable..
