My brother has a lot of respect for the Spetznaz. He was in the RAF Regiment, all though they arn't considered 'Special forces' their role to protect airfields and other military bases from external assault both from the air and from the ground puts them in the 'specialist' category.
Jessica Lynch is further distinguished because the situation which gained her fame was the result of BAD CONDUCT (poor care of her weapon) which reflects the lax attitude of soldiers as compared to Marines, especially in reserve units. Realize that in the good old days of war at sea, even on pirate ships, poor care of a weapon was A FLOGGING OFFENSE. Jessica Lynch, by all rights, ought to be flogged. (she's just cute enough that I'll volunteer to do the flogging too).

It's people like Westpoint that make America so ignorant..
You have no perception for other people's cultures, you've been brought up in one of the worst schooling systems in the world (in developed countries) and been taught that America is Number 1, America always wins, if it wasnt for America then the world would fall apart.
Well, we have news for you
America has been around for 200 years, and was one of the biggest mistakes ever. Your nation was built on the massacaring of thousands of native Indians, who continue to live under your darn suppression.
If you want to make a good officer, a heart-felt suggestion, spend a year going around the world. See other cultures, learn the basics of other languages, and most importantly, dont spend any time at all eating in MacDonalds, Burger King, 'The Little Chef' or other American fast food restuarants. Learn to respect others!
