I was in complete agreement with your second last post, but I had UPS problems and lost my link just before I tried to post said agreement.

WFP is the World Food Program and that is what is feeding North Korea. As for artillery, how much of that is fixed and how much is mobile? You don't seriously believe the US hasn't plotted it and has counter-battery radar, arty and rockets waiting, or even pre-tasked air missions?

If you had footage of the Mongols it would be twentieth century, ergo of some relevance.

Fine, I'll follow the link. I'll U2U instead of this stuff.

As for the original premise.

My original assessments still stand. For all the reasons that have been explored here.

Largest or most powerful militaries do not make the world's best.

If it did then the Red Army and its Warsaw Pact allies were the world's best military for 40 years.

The fallaciousness of that assessment was shown in Afghanistan (in the 80s) and is being shown now in Iraq and Chechnya.

To be the best you have to be the most effective. And the US are not. By the same token the next two massive/hi-tech armies, Russia and China do not enter the pcture either. Indonesia has a million men under arms, no-one rates them.
Israel is a nation smaller than the size of the state of Victoria, everyone rates them.

Oh, please do display it. I'm interested in what your knowledge is. Well, I don't hate the Germans as they do Poles but I'm of an opinion that their history education is not of a high level...
Poland sucks today but it was a huge military power in the past. Unfortnately, it's yore now. What's left of those times of glory is national pride and tradition (and great stubborness in fighting invaders).


Don't insult the Poles about their tradition, especially military tradition. It's a sensitive topic.
(national pride here, though I must admit that thinking it could be among the 10 best militaries would be naive)

AND polish military has GROM which is as good as the SAS or Delta

You know for 3rd best military I would have to say france....they have 91 ships compared to the UK's 84....and they have more nukes than us which is quite shocking but heh.
Mind you most country's have more nukes than us....ISREAL has more nukes than us....I found that a shocker as well..

They also have a bigger army since we have 103.78 thousand men and women and the french army of 138 thousand men and women..

I dont know about airforce wise though...

Great stubborness in fighting invaders? Do you have any idea what country we are talking about? Poland surrendered to the 3 partition powers in the 18th century without almost any fighting (almost, because there were a few minor exceptions). THEY THEMSELVES allowed the first and the second partition treaty (allowing the partition powers to take over a part of their territory). After the partitions, they started 4 insurections, each of which failed.

After the WWII? We were the 4th most powerful nation (not country unfortunately). we had 600000 enlisted men fighting on all fronts, among the Allies.

And what will you call the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth?



The Commonwealth was one of the largest and most populous states in Europe and for over two centuries successfully withstood wars with the Teutonic Order, the Mongols, the Russians, the Ottomans, and Sweden.

WOW! Wasn't that a real military power?

Battle of Vienna in 1683: You call these the Middle Ages?

I'll tell you.
Great stubborness in fighting invaders, a FEW examples:
Haven't we stopped the communist expansion in 192*?
We have taken over Kiev because Russians didn't allow the Ukrainians to create their own republic. The Russians attacked us then. We were alone in this battle, had no alliance. The west was afraid that their colonies would be taken over by Russia. We lost 3/4 of our teritories. But we fought back and won with an army two times larger in numbers than ours.

The Kircholm battle (with the Swedens, they were an EMPIRE then) of 1605? (info fromWikipedia)
Strength:
Poland:
1,300 infantry 2,500 cavalry 5 guns
Sweden:
11,000 infantry 3,000 cavalry 11 guns
Casualties:
Poland:
100 dead 200 wounded Those killed had to be extremely unlucky!

Sweden:
9,500 dead

Our conflicts with Sweden lasted over 60 years. And they kept attacking us. No wonder that in the end of those wars we were shattered. The next 200 years we were constantly fighting. Nothing was left of the military power we had in the past.

NO! It were the polititians who sold our country to the opressor. If your king/emperor was a lover of Katherine the IInd, you would get partitioned in no time. We are a great nation but our leaders are always irresponsible.



After the partitions, they started 4 insurections, each of which failed.

Insurrections against countries which were empires. I didn't mean we were victorious in fighting the opressors. So we were stubborn while other nations weren't so determined to regain their freedom.

And weren't we stubborn when the Nazis attacked us in 1939? Then we were even weaker than today. The Nazis were preparing for war, they were the most powerful country. We had NO CHANCE of defending ourselves from the Ribentropp-Molotov pact countries! Yet it took the Germans and Russians over one month to defeat us and the partizans still fought them for years.



I'm pointing out facts. They don't have a glorious military history - that is a FACT.

You don't know the facts. I have pointed actual ones above.
AND
You're talking about glory? At least Poles haven't followed a MADMAN and have never attacked a weaker country.



Our German GSG9 is as good as SAS or Delta as well.

You may know a little about history but you don't know nothing about special forces.
1. GSG9 is not a military unit. Don't compare a Border Police unit working inside the country with units trained for military operations. (But as a hostage rescue team they are the best)
2. When GROM, SAS and Delta fight in Iraq the GSG9 take part in the SWAT match. No comments.

600,000 enlisted men? Surely not true. Even your Polish history book speaks of in total (as far as I remember) no more than 250,000 enlisted men.
And NO, you were not the 4th most powerful nation. The most powerful nation were: US, USSR, GB, the 3rd Reich (which had control over all invaded countries until the Allies attacked) and maybe France. You Poles didn't even recover your liberty, much less be the 4th most powerful nation.
But even if you would be the 4th most powerful nation, you wouldn't be a military power. Being the 4th most powerful nation doesn't mean being a military power, much less a huge military power.

A military power? You won the last three wars against the Teutonic order, but you lost against the Turks during war in 1444, and you didn't won any of the two wars with Sweden (one was lost by you and another was tied). There were countries more powerful than you: Germany (split politically), France, and Russia. Let's also say "Imperial GB" as well, to be fair.

The Monte Cassino battle was one battle. But I know that you participated in the Italian campaign. So what? You didn't win this alone. You also didn't free your country.

During that war, you won the fighting, but you didn't take advantage of it, and thus you lost. Sweden were still ruling the Inflants (and the Inflants were what that war was all about).

It was your Members of Parliament - authorities authorised to make decisions on behalf of the nation - and they were Poles.
And Russia was not the only partition power, the two other were Prussia and Austria. So no, we wouldn't be partitioned, because it was the leader-provinces of Germany (Austria and Prussia) who were the partition powers together with Russia.

Because all those insurections failed, and because there was only 4 of them in 123 years, I wouldn't say you were as stubborn as you claim. And don't say that other nations were not as determined as you were. There were insurections in Greece (successful) and Belgium (successful).

It took ONLY over one month to take over Poland. And don't forget that your country was big at the time. It was a lot of territory to take over.

Without success. The 3rd Reich still was ruling Poland. It also quelled the Warsaw Insurection.

250,000 was the number of our forces in 1939. I’m talking about the END of the war, when the “great” Nation, the 3rd Reich was shattered. On the end of WWII, there were 600,000 Poles in formations and armies all over WWII war theatre.



And NO, you were not the 4th most powerful nation. The most powerful nation were: US, USSR, GB, the 3rd Reich and maybe France.

I’ll correct you: Great Britain consists of three nations. The USSR was a federation of countries and nations.



You Poles didn't even recover your liberty, much less be the 4th most powerful nation.

And check the maps after 1945. What do you see east of the Deutsche Demokratische Republik? It’s freed Poland.



But even if you would be the 4th most powerful nation, you wouldn't be a military power. Being the 4th most powerful nation doesn't mean being a military power, much less a huge military power.

We were the 4th most powerful nation, not a country. Every historian will tell you that. Why then not call us a military power?



A military power? You won the last three wars against the Teutonic order, but you lost against the Turks during war in 1444

1444!? The Warna Battle? We were not even defending our own country but were aiding Hungary because we shared our king. Many times we defended Europe against the Turks. We did loose this “war” but not on our own turf.



and you didn't won any of the two wars with Sweden (one was lost by you and another was tied).

What’s a TIE in war? There’s no such thing as a tie, there’s only victory and defeat. If someone takes over our land, we loose. If they can’t take our land, they loose.



There were countries more powerful than you: Germany (split politically), France, and Russia. Let's also say "Imperial GB" as well, to be fair.

We won wars with the Teutonic Order and you still tell me that Germany was more powerful? Is the Prussian Tribute not a confirmation of our nation’s power?
Was Russia really stronger than us? How come we took over Kremlin in the XIVth century when in war with Halich Russia?



The Monte Cassino battle was one battle. But I know that you participated in the Italian campaign. So what? You didn't win this alone.

That’s very kind of you that you took notice of our participation in the Italian Campaign.
I hope you also know of our fighting in Northern Africa, Normandy, the Eastern Front, Holland and the Battle of England.
We fought in almost every front of the 2nd World War, especially in Europe. We won many battles, also alone.
And in the Monte Cassino battle, if it wasn’t for us, the whole operation would have failed and many, many more Allied troops would have died.
Remember, the Allies were not only the US, USSR and UK. These were soldiers of all nations, also occupied ones. By saying that Polish soldiers haven’t taken a significant role in the battles of WWII and haven't achieved glorious victories, you actually insult all nations whose soldiers fought the occupant.



You also didn't free your country

We were not fighting for freedom, we were fighting to defeat the Nazis.



During that war, you won the fighting, but you didn't take advantage of it, and thus you lost. Sweden were still ruling the Inflants (and the Inflants were what that war was all about).

We were defending ourselves, we were not the aggressors. And we managed to defend ourselves, though at the cost of losing Inflants. We would lose if they caused the disappearance of our country.



It was your Members of Parliament - authorities authorised to make decisions on behalf of the nation - and they were Poles.

Yes, the members of the Polish United Worker’s Party and Sozialistische Einheitspartei Deutschlands also spoke In the name of the nation.



And Russia was not the only partition power, the two other were Prussia and Austria. So no, we wouldn't be partitioned, because it was the leader-provinces of Germany (Austria and Prussia) who were the partition powers together with Russia.

You are right. It only shows that our country didn’t stand a chance against these three empires. We had no military power then.



Because all those insurections failed, and because there was only 4 of them in 123 years, I wouldn't say you were as stubborn as you claim. And don't say that other nations were not as determined as you were. There were insurections in Greece (successful) and Belgium (successful).

List of Polish Uprisings
It was more than 4 uprisings in those 120 yrs (these are not all), your sources (German history books?) seem to be wrong.
And did the German people try to regain freedom when Napoleon (we also fought on his side because he created the Duchy of Warsaw) captured their territories? Did they start an uprising?



It took ONLY over one month to take over Poland. And don't forget that your country was big at the time. It was a lot of territory to take over.

It took ONLY over one month to take over Poland because it was attacked by two stronger countries (Prussia was german, right?) and by surprise (you were preparing the attack for at least 2 years). Also, were not aided by France and the UK (like they stated they would).
It took 3 weeks to take over France and their territory was equal to ours. And the French had British (and Polish!) aid in fighting only one country, not two.



Without success. The 3rd Reich still was ruling Poland. It also quelled the Warsaw Insurection.

That’s right. Because they had tanks, air support and HMGs. They were well equipped while we had SMGs and pistols (not as much as we would like to have even).
They quelled the uprising but were soon blown away by the Red Army (which did NOTHING to aid their allies, the Warsaw partisans).



No, it is YOU who doesn't know the facts, as you just have shown.

I point out the actual facts and still am confident that they are correct.



You have. You attacked Halich Russia in the 14th century, for example.

Are you comparing the biggest and most brutal conflict in history of humanity with a raid that was a routine in the XIV century?



I know a lot about history.

You really think that you know more about polish history than a Pole?



And win this SWAT match. No comments. Why we are not fighting in Iraq does not havy anything to do with how good GSG9 is.

It has. They have not seen action in years and fight in a match with local police force SWAT units which don’t have the training, the gear and the experience. I call that an absurd, a dishonor for an elite unit they are supposed to be (as I said, they are the BEST in hostage rescue operations but are not trained for missions GROM and the SAS can undertake).



And please answer my entire post, not just what you choose to disagree with.

GSG9 and the SAS even cooperated in real-life operations.
Still, they are not capable of undertaking missions outside Germany anymore and don't need to be trained to fight in environments and situations the other two units are trained for (operations underwater, on deserts, oil rigs, use of parachutes).

No, I was talking about the END of the war, not the beginning. You didn''t have 600,000 soldiers. The number of 250,000 soldiers was given by a POLISH history book written by Wlodzimierz Medrzecki and Robert Szuchta. Yes, I know Polish language.

This was a war, and you lost it. And it doesn't matter if you lose the war on your own territory or not on your own territory, you still lose this war. For example, in 732 the Muslims attacked France and lost. They didn't lose on their own territory, but it doesn't matter. They lost.

The state of the Teutonic Order was only a part of Germany. You wouldn't win in a war against whole Germany. Don't claim that you defeated Germany when you have only defeated a part of it. You can claim that you won a war, but you cannot claim that you won a war with whole Germany.
Besides, you didn't win all the wars with the Teutonic Knights. You lost the war in 1308-1309 and the war in 1329-1332. But because during each of those two wars you lost only a part of your territory, let's count these two wars as a tie, to be fair.

You didn't take over the Cremlin. That is, not permamently. You tried to institute your heir to the throne, Vladislav, the Russian emperor, but you failed to do that, and your another pretended to the throne, Dmitri, was quickly murdered. You failed. You lost that war. (This war with Russia was in the 17th century).

No, I'm not. I'm pointing out facts. You didn't play a significant role in WWII - that is a fact. You were defeated many times during WWII. And without you, the Allies would win. You had bad equipment (apart from the equipment you received from the Allies) and you didn't have many soldiers, as I have already said.

Independence of your country was not what that was was going on for! That war was going for Inflants! You lost them. But let's not count it as a loss, to be fair. But we cannot count it as your victory, too.

When Napoleon lost in Russia, Germany betrayed Napoleon. We - together with other nations defeated him during the battle of Leipzig in 1813. Prussia - together with GB - finally defeated Napoleon in 1815.
