I'd like to add that these debates are POINTLESS on forums where 95% of people are meat-eaters. There will never be a fair, civil debate and nothing will be accomplished. See how this thread is awash with fanatical meat-eaters finding any and every way to ridicule vegetarians for making a positive choice!?
Lead by example in the real world!

How would a Vegan/Vegatarian fare compared to a Omnivore in an extreme survival situation?
Medically speaking I already know the answer.

We can only get certain essentials from meats. As example, creatine is only found in red meats.

If optimum health is the goal, then being generally vegetarian, but eating a few portions of oily fish and a couple of portions of poultry per week is probably the best bet. If the goal is to have a clear conscience, then veganism is the way. I still dont eat red meat, but that is more of a health decision than anything, as I see no advantage to eating it, it is full of fat, cholesterol and the body has a hard time breaking it down.
