Not to mention their economy is miles ahead of almost every other African country. Perhaps with the exception of South Africa.

But how long has it been since the last war? i believe the egyptian military is conscription, so probably none if any of the current serving soldiers have experience fighting actual wars.

I think we're pretty well agreed that the power ranking for Africa would probably be like this:
1.) Egypt
2.) South Africa
3.) Nigeria

Any disagreement on that?

WEll I would think Congo, Libya, Morroco would all be in the list somewhere, However I doubt it would be 4,5, and 6.
