Aussie John, we've got that one sorted.

Italien Guy, thanks for the rendition of 'God Save the Queen', It's good to see someone of another nationality searching for the words.

Is that you John Wayne.
 
I admire many armed forces in the world but without being biased i admire the brits the most. I simple believe that their history accounts for quite a bit, and as they are one of the most respected and fierce fighting armies in the world it gives them the edge over the rest. I would say that other have a similar history but they are not as respected today.

Don't worry,

The Brits should do what the Australian Government does by keeping very cosy with George W.
And what happens if america doesnt want to get involved! Then were screwed as we wont have the equipment!

I give a lot of repsect to the British military. They are certainly one of the best trained militaries out there. However, I dont like the general attitude of the British Military. When ever I have been around them, granted not a lot but...., I always get the feeling they think they are above everyone else.

Either way, I would gladly fight next to a member for the British Army.

Yep, you're screwed. Aussie Government has increased military spending. There is a proposal to have US training facilities set up in Queensland. We are getting involved with the missle shield defence program with the US. Johnny Howard is trying to make us feel very secure! Any way this stuff is off the topic.

8) Brits are good... my great grandfather was a Brit.. 1903 when my grandfather was born by a Chinese (Cantonese) mother.

Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace.'' Jesus of Nazareth, founder of Christianity, 1st century AD

I am American but I love my British brothers, after some time in the USMC I will go serve in the British Royal Marines for a couple of years.

Not unless you plan on waiting several years for citizenship and giving up your US citizenship.

Well a British Marine down at the MCL said that if i am good enough I can get into an exchange program and go serve with the British Marines becoming one of them, while one of them joins our ranks, but he said you had to be handpicked so I guess i will just triple my effort.
