"Why and how have you worked with all these units, I would (and have, once) considered myself lucky to work with the SAS, let alone a forigner having done so."
More years than I care to remember all over Germany, Berlin included!
LRRP joint "games with SAS", even in their hometown...
"According to Pte England "everyone knew about it [, the abuse], from the company commander down". If you would like to talk about the British abuse pohoto's that have emerged, I wouild be happy to give my reasons for believing them to be fake."
Whatever....but I remember a specific British E&E joint exercise were the bag over the head, the nakedness, uncomfortable position and nasty comments over anatomy parts by female participants were SOP!
He who has nothing to fight for, is a miserable creature kept free by better men than himself.

Sitting there somparing strengths and weaknesses and measuring our guns is not going to go anywhere. I think like somebody said before they are just different. I am patriotic as they come and I love my country. However, I can say that I respect every honest and loyal soldier out there, no matter the country they defend. It is not fair of you either to stereotype an entire force of soldiers into one nut shell. Not all American soldiers have trouble thinking outside of the box, and I have witnessed some terrfic leadership and capablilties in American soldiers. All I am getting at is that it is not fair to generalize and that comparing is redundant because of the differences in size and armament. Not trying to pick a fight at all. Just an opinion.

You know what? I believe I have been around them long enough to have a solid opinion:
They are tough professionals.
Again, I got to work with their Armored units, Infantry and SAS. Everything from mounted and dismounted urban ops to LRRP stuff and team work as UNMOs...
I have good memories and loved it all!!! and I am French!
So take my word for it!
It is not about who is going to kick the other one's butt. It is about the British as soldiers, good or not or whatever it means anyways!!!
Toughness, endurance, training, equipment, versatility, leadership, adaptability, resourcefulness....you name it...many qualities are needed to make a good soldier!!!

humble opinion info
as much as i hate to admit it the english are probably the no1 army in the world, the aussie armys very good but not the size of the other armys such as us and the brits which is the reason i rank the brits as no1 at the moment.
and as far as tactical edges comments on the brits being beaten by "some farmers and badly trained men" it does sound like vietnam too , lot of famers in that war and they won. ( no offence intended to veterens of that conflict) also without the help of the french would the U.S of won the revolution? the U.S hasn't been a deciding factor in as many wars as tactical edge may think.
