I would choose functional Spetsnaz over flashy Delta Force any day

SPETSNAZ.. IMO, are probably if not the most proficient SF in the world, as mentioned above by Bearack they are not hung up and regulated by health & safety regs, are these not the chaps that parachuted on to MOUNT EVEREST if my memory serves 27 jumped but only 12 survived, and it was counted as a successful mission, the only guys that seem to come close are 2nd REP foreign legion they have the record for the lowest jump, again H&S, regs don't seem to apply to these guys, just my opinion

Special Forces are supposed to strike with surgical precision. Just look at what the Navy SEALs did with those pirates. To storm a building and shoot everything that moves can be effective in taking out the bad guys but doesn't really help when you kill the innocents also.
I would say that Delta, SEAL's and SAS are the best in the world hands down.
