We have to ask ourselves a question : Do we really want a person like Mafia_Jabba in our military? ;)
And I haveno clue where to find the info anyway. Ummm... http://www.army.com?

Really, just open up any magazine or watch any TV show. Does "An army of one" ring a bell? Good luck.

Forget that. Let's start our own army. We could take over the world!
06-20-2001, 06:11 PM
Forget westpoint boy, Sandhurst is THE place to be... For proper soldiers, none of that sh|t you Yanks have. :)

06-20-2001, 11:56 PM
Ahmm, the Army...
Been there, wouldn't wanna go back...
I really don't get it. How can someone want to make an army carreer?
It might be diferent in other countries though...

lol buckeye, "That be fighting talk!"
Nah, the last country I want to piss off is the yanks:
I enjoy ripping your TV shows,
The way some of you think we know the Queen personally,
And those ammusing texan dialects.
but I don't really fancy being in a war with you guys, even though we are generally acknowledged to have the best trained armed forces in the world.
You guys are TUFF with a capital T.

we got the schiznit troops...dood, when you mention war in this country everyone gets hyped up and ready to fight..for got sakes we got the frickin words AND BOMBS BURSTING IN AIR in our freeking NATIONAL ANTHEM lmao
He lives in Greece, so other countries besides Greece
The USA I guess, It looks like the US army is different from armies at other countries around the world
06-22-2001, 02:20 AM
USA army is the schiznit. They are awesome hehe.
06-22-2001, 04:54 PM
They are the 'shiznit' after the UK's. Thats what I'm saying, ours are better trained..
06-22-2001, 04:59 PM
(this is all in good fun...)
Well, the queen can keep her trained troops. We've got the brains behind the brawns and are moving toward removing the troops in the first place. Our tech is the shiznit. ;)
06-22-2001, 07:37 PM
Of course this is all in good fun...As long as you admit we're better! ;) j/k
NO, you would give us a good beating anyday of the week - but we only have 100,000 soldiers - however, they are extremely well trained.
You have millions and thats why you can\will beat nearly anyone.
Yet if we wanted we could ask help from any of our remaining empire (the commonwealth)including India, Canada, Australia + loads of others...
Drifting off slightly, what do the Yanks still think of the Russians?
If I were American, I would forget the Russians, they're has beens, worry about The Asia's - Chinese, Pakistanis...
06-22-2001, 09:23 PM
You haven't heard of the spy plane fiasco?!
Anyway, I don't know much about English soldiers, but our SEALs our pretty much the 1337est. ;) Is there anyone with knowledge that can back me up?
06-23-2001, 11:11 AM
OH YEAH! I forgot about that. DUH! Yeah you lot got caught with your pants down there. LOL.
The elites are the SAS, and Im not taking no for an answer on that one ;)
06-23-2001, 12:47 PM
They might have the well trained troops..but we got the ****ing nukes

No no... let me set the record straight for everyone that doesn't live in the US. Our plane was in international waters when it happened. The Chinese plane ran into us! (yeah, like a big cruiser's gonna do an agressive manouver on a couple of jets. :rolleyes:
Haha, that's sig-worthy Jabba! :D

Fair do's Fair do's. I actually felt a little sorry for George Dubya, only been in a few months and he has to negotiate with the second largest superpower in the world because someone crashed into one of his helicopters.
But what were the americans doing in the first place?, equipped with high powered spy technology? I doubt they were sight seeing. ;)

They were cookin potatoes on those cool nuclear reactor thingamagigs =)
06-24-2001, 04:45 AM
Yup, I'm from Greece as Digl said. Here in Greece we HAVE to go to the army. Not to go is not an option. And of course we are not paid to do so...
Apart from high and middle ranked officers that have to go to a very dificult military schooll to get trained (and brainwashed to death), all low ranked officers are usually people that join the army either for the money or just to feel superiority over others... Those were the ones I had to deal with and I honnestly (I'm not a diciplined person myself) never liked it. In fact I had to stay 65 days (we have to stay in the army for 18 months) more as a soldier because of my attitude towards them...Something like a punishment.
But I don't think that my experience as a soldier was the reason I hate the Army. It really has to do with its purpose...

The US routinely monitors international waters. One of my old teachers has a son or a relative that piloted the east coast plane. It goes on every day so that the US knows about incoming missles.
And I don't consider China a superpower. I'd consider Great Britain one however. It's a good thing we're allies. :)

i was in the german army. In my time i got in touch with some US-Soldiers. Well, surely well trained, but these people aren´t trained to think! I had the impression the commen soldier is kinda cannon fodder.
And anyways, wars nowadays are decided by pressing buttons. China, Korea and the near east also can press buttons, so why do you think thousands or millions of soldiers can prevent this?
The reason that there is no big war these times is that everyone is afraid of a nuclear war. the cold war never ends....
my 2 cents

Matt, I would have to agree with you about that 100%! Its a two way thing there, we obviously don't have the empire anymore so we need you quite a lot whenever the the proverbial hits the fan.
Unfortunately our PM is adament that he would rather get support from Europe's part time Armies instead of your full time one.
Hell we even had to train half of theirs in the first place!
And Visac is right, the cold war never ended, it just 'thawed for a while.' But now the middle east and chinese are getting a bit frisky, things may alter again.
