I'm not that nationalistic to say America has the best military. I know that we have a very good one that is hard to beat.
The proof is in our history, in our technology, and the fact that whenever things go wrong in the world you guys always come to us for help. WW I you guys came to us. WW II we were brought in because of Pearl Harbor. Vietnam North Korea came to us for help. Korean War came to us for help. Iraq War Kuwait came to US for help as did the UN. OPEC. Israel. Everybody comes to America for help.
So if we're not a very good military, why do you guys keep coming to America for help? Then you guys don't like the way we do things and start hating on America and criticizing us every chance you get and magically forget that you guys came to us for help.
If you don't want us to help, solve your own damned problems.

One time my DS walked in after we where in the field for 3 days, and walked to the very back corner of the 60 man bay, looked under a bunk and found the smallest dust bunny ever seen. He closed all the windows, turned the heat up all th way ordered us to dress in our winter uniforms and smoked us, for over an hour. Because it is by nature an very exacting job, the training is also very exacting. You will never see a late artillery man, our job is time on target. We do our jobs quite well, even in bad to very bad conditions.
I always just assumed that mine wasn't the only job training their soldiers hard and well at all things soldiering.

Actually, technology has saved a lot of casualties.
Vietnam: 211, 000 dead and wounded
Afghanistan and Iraq combined: 48,000

This thread is so ignorant.. the US without a doubt is far superior to any other force on the planet. This is an obvious attemtp to spark yet another debate on how much the US is trying to be better than everyone else on the planet. Im so sick of this pissing contest.

while America's got the numbers and the technology but theres alot more to winning a war than just simple numbers as before you can kill the enemy you have to find them and theres no one daft enough to go into a straight on willy waving contest and these days you cant do total warfare where you kill every man/woman/child in your path
