And once more i feel the need to explain that the Gurkha's are NOT special forces, they are a regular british army unit from another country....with more unorthodox styles.

When people say "SAS" they think about the British SAS force. They are the best special focrce in the world, Australia should come up with their own Special Force instead of copying off us Brits again.

Alright, you can nit pick over every little detail. SAS is the oldest (except Rangers), Israel probably has the most experience, SEALs probably have the best reputation, GSG-9 probably has the best experience in aircraft takedown, and GIGN the most in bus takedown. However, as far as I'm concerned, they are all elite and equal. Most SF across the world use the same selection criteria, and the same training methods. So what makes one better than the other?
And in answer to a few previous posts, there have been special forces olympics. JTF-2 actually won (my country). But SF Competitions do not prove who is the best. Anybody rememeber watching Belarus beat Sweden in Hockey for the Winter Olympics?
