I personally think that Marine Force Recon is the best SOF in the World.
The Marines have another SOF codenamed "Detachment One" theres under 100 people in it. Heres a Link:Link

Yah , I've heard about these guys, they're tough hombres. Marine Force Recon " Snake eaters " aren't too bad either.

Naah, the Aussies just copied from the English men... SAS..? Well my opinion is hat the British SAS winns... Cos' they fought during the WW2... And that was a whole lot of a different thing if we compare to the Australian SAS, Wich only has fought battles it has known to be the winner in... Or should I say, that it hasn't done Great things, it hasn't done amazing things... it has just done things that an ordinary team could do...

Hmmm, the Australians pulled off one of the greatest special forces attacks of the war. Z Special Force travelled thousands of km's behind Japanese lines and proceeded to sink 50 000+ tonnes of ships in Singapore Harbour. I doubt the Brit SAS could have done that

Fijian's aren't that bad actually. I'm coming across the fact that there are a lot of Fijian soldiers in Iraq right now working security and they're highly sought after due to their high level of professionalism.

Yeah it's no surprise they make up a disproportionate number of 22SAS - hard as nails and v. loyal to the Crown.

If your life depended on 4 guys - fijian SAS would be the smart choice.

Special Forces are highly SPECILIZED fighting units! No one unit is the best at Everything: not American, not British, not Russian, not French, not German, Not Any of them! If this is to be an honest discussion, Give Credit where it is dew! Now, who's the best for a Given Area, here are my picks:

Counterterroism: American Delta Force

Air to Ground Raids: UK Special Air Service (SAS)

Gurrilla Warfare: Russian Spetsnaz

Rescue: American PJ (Para Jumper) (They don't start fights, but they SURE save your ass when you're up the creek without a paddle!)

There are no "best" Special Forces; it's like asking which is better, an axe or a sledgehammer? It depends on the mission. But when it comes to training, equipment, and funding, the United States has the most and the best of these. IF there is a best, it is the U.S. Special Operations Forces.

maybe its more like who has the best record, but then that be bad math since all the special forces have to perform the same number of operations to get a good comparison and many of the special forces were created in many different times like the SAS back in WW2 and Delta in 1977, and so on.

That depends on your opinion.

Like mine is;

CT: SAS M section
Maratime CT: SBS M section
Guirilla warfare: SAS
Artic warfare: Artic warfare cadre
Desert combat: SAS mobility troop
Maratime attacks: SBS
Intel: Special intelligence regiment (Once 14th intel , found it finally daystar!)

Or if I was american I would choose.
CT: Delta
Maratime CT: navy seals
Guirrilla warfare: Green berets
Artic warfare: unsure...
Desert combat: Delta
Maratime attacks: MFR, SEALS
Intel: MFR

One of the smallest Special Forces units but also one of the best units that specialise in bush, jungle and dessert war tactics.

Go see for your self:

Yah, he told me stories(eric), on how he was garding a base once. A top official never had a pass to get in, so Eric wouldnt let him in, so the top offiical just laughed and walked in, but Eric grabed his hand and broke it.
