I like Australia
Two reasons:
1. They gave us the crocodile hunter
2. They hav tht little union jack in the corner of their flag. i mean how cool is tht.

The aussie military are a good bunch of people am sure if war broke out thed be happy to help us brits again. they did in world war one an two.

esp like the "gadgets" the ANZAC's came up with to cover their retreat and make the turks think they were still there. and Nick....i couldn't let this one go without comment;

"The New Zealanders were widely thought, not just by themselves, to possess both Australian and British virtues in warfare."

The old water drop sniper. Great invention that.

And no doubt, you Kiwi's are fantastic soldiers, you've always proved yourselves over and over in battle.

I think this has already been pretty well covered by the other members posting in this thread, but THINK before you post. This is why we require you to provide sources for your information.

So it looks like 74% of respondants think the Australian Military is overall "good"... that alright I suppose.

i think we just need more media coverage

if they covered the navy guys dealing with the illegal immigrants on the boats when there were heaps of them 2 years ago, and thier role in stopping the flow of illegal immigrants was more widely known, then you might get a better %
the thing is that we are southern hemisphere and all the "action" is in the north, or at least thats where "all the countries that count" are. sucks being so far away from the economic and military superpowers, but prehaps thats a mixed blessing...
