I've trained with the Rangers,FBI, GSG9 and a host of local L.E. teams. Most of you know enough about SOG's to look stupid. No one will ever settle on whose the best team. Nationalism will always rear its ugly head, far as I'm concerned the best team is the one who has my back.
By the way my favorite Carlos Hathcock movie was "Rear Sniper Window"... Dummy

No, I support them because I think they are a lot fitter, have much better endurance, and are trained to a higher standard.
I don't agree with that. Have you ever actually seen what kind of exercises SEALs do and how often they do them?
I just think the SAS have the potential to do the job better in a given context. A good example of this is the Iranian Embassy seige. A friend's uncle was the RSM of the 22 SAS at the Embassy.
For crying out loud, just look at how much we spend on SF vs how much England spends on it.
