These guys are true badasses, taking on two sometimes three countries at a time in the 60s. Can't remember what the war was called. But they are badasses. Literally surrounded by enemies and none of them can do a thing to disrupt Israel's sanctity.

Their army is indeed well-trained. However, in history (future) Israel will be attacked by the anti-Christ and all the (remaining) armies of the Eastern world. (Revelation 20:7-9)

Israel has by far the best army in the Middle East. They beat the arab armies already in 3 wars, although the arabs had much quantity. Meanwhile the abilities of the Israelis even have improved. No good idea to attack them. It will end in Desaster for the ennemies of Israel.

Funny how Iran thinks they can own Israel.Israel has proven that they are a force to be contended.They are keeping Iran in check,but I think they should be a bit more aggressive to sink their message in deep into Iran's thick skull.But seriously guys,don't ya'll think U.S. should be number 1?

This is precisely where I would place the IDF, #2. While the IDF is small, they are well trained, well equipped, agile mobile and hostile. Historically, Israel has had to rely on superior tactics, cunning, intelligence and a willingness to take the fight to the enemy. Arguably, there has been more disadvantages than advantages from the 6 Days War, but the execution was nothing less than brilliant.

Historically, the IDF, IAF, etc, have proven themselves in every conflict they've been involved in. Does this mean that they would stack up in sheer capability to a G8 (top 8 industrial capacity) nation or a country like India (the 3rd largest military behind China and U.S.)? Probably not. But, for its scale, it has to rank very high.

Once again we see the stupid, ignorant, paranoid views of Islamic extremism being expressed by "Sardar Rufi" above. The ignorance of this "person" is unbelievable. There is no instance of Israel doing anything against Pakistan. There has never been dogfights between Israeli and Pakistani aircraft. Also, to say that the USA conspires against Pakistan in the UN is baseless. The US and Pakistan are allies. The US needs Pakistan's support in that region and takes the policies of Pakistan's government seriously. What we have above is another incidence of an ignorant person listening to non-educated, hate filled mullahs who have an ax to grind against Jews, Americans and Hindus. These people need to come out of the Middle Ages, get some education, and do away with hate filled mullahs who have about a second grade education.

Well I really don't have anything against Jewish people so I am not hiding anything. The Holocaust was an attrocity that should never happen again. That's one muslims point of view.

Israel would stop killing Muslims today if the Muslims would stop trying to initiate another Holocaust on the Jews. It is HAMAS, HEZBOLLAH, IRAN, AND THE OTHER RADICAL NATIONS AND TERRORISTS, that keep dragging this crap out. Leave Israel alone, live in peace, stop waging war against Jews and Christians, and this will end very quickly. As for the Afghans fighting for their land and religion, that's true, but not as you say. They are fighting to be set free of a radical form of their religion that should have died out 300 years ago. When groups and clerics that support terrorist organizations such as Al Queda, and beliefs that slaughter human beings like RADICAL Islam, stop spreading hate and evil among their own people, Afghanistan will be free. Not until.

It is true that the Taliban are evil but some innocent people loose their lives just because they happen to be in the same building as a terrorist. It may not seem much to other people but to that person's family, it's devistating. I know sometimes there is no other option but sometimes there is.

You should ask yourself how many Afghan and other people in the world would be dead if it wasn't for people like my friends giving their lives. The Taliban is evil, they enforce an antiquated lifestyle on the people under their control, one of control, abuse and death. It is regrettable, very regrettable, that innocent civilians are sometimes killed, but due to the Taliban tactic of hiding in civilian areas it's going to happen. The fact is that the United States can't have a government in place anywhere in the world that allows terrorists to run training camps on their soil. If we don't act, terrorists will be doing something much worse than flying jets into buildings.

Tboneya, I'm tired of fighting. You are a very respectable and intellegent person. I just can't stand it when people critisize my people.

United States of America Report Abuse
Anyone who says differently has no idea what they are talking about. The US has taken the study of military tactics to a level never seen before. Look at all of the places we are holding down with a 100% VOLUNTEER army. I pity anyone who would like to see how "real" the americans are. This is not to say we dont need our allies.

the USA appeared on the battlefield in WW I and WW II when the ennemies and allies were already exhausted from 2 years war. So there was not great risk for losing the war.This shows that the USA is always clever. It is more clever than any other. Since WWII they also have the supremacy of weapons. The Technology Comes from Germany. Very likely inclusive the big Bomb.

World War Two was not won by the supremacy of the U.S. This is no detraction from the powerful force that America was then, or the even more powerful force they are today. Germany's loss, though, was a foregone conclusion once Hitler invaded Russia. The Russian Army was the most powerful force in the world during this time. When Hitler marched his troops during winter into Russian lands, the outcome for the Germans was sealed. The use of nuclear weapons during World War Two can be argued on both sides as to whether it was necessary. The official review by the U.S. Air Force regarding their aerial bombardment in the Pacific hedges its bets on this issue as well. If I was to state which nation I would put as the most powerful today, it would be the U.S. Army. The importance of military bases, ports, air fields, mobility, supply chain, and so forth, are often overlooked. America has the lot: the troops, the weapons, the technology, the firepower, and their allies as well. I think it may be some time before this changes, and as a citizen of a Western ally of the U.S., I would rather not see it change, to be quite honest. Anti-American sentiments exist for whatever reasons one can conceive of in other Western countries, but if they're honest with themselves as to the importance of the U.S.'s military capabilities, both now and in the past, they'd be quite grateful for America's presence as the world superpower. I know I am.

Those who say the U.S has lost a war and that is a negative against them are sadly mistaken. In Vietnam, the American troops crushed the Vietnamese and the death toll was approximately 1:10, in U.S favor. The U.S only technically lost because the war was fought to prevent Vietnam from becoming communist, which they failed to prevent, but not because the U.S was successfully repelled. In fact, they only left as early as they did because the public insisted that the government withdraw from the war, a war they considered pointless. In short, the U.S would have won, but they failed to achieve their primary objective which made the Vietnam war a tactical loss.

Based on their training and their state-of-the-art training grounds facilities, such as flight simulations for Air Force, ships designed for naval practices for the navy and all-type of grounds (mountain, desert, swamp, forest, etc) prepared for infantry training, they should be the best-trained soldiers in the world.

The USA won all wars where they defended freedom and human rights - which is the reason why they lost only one war. The USarmy is always best equipped, most modern and advanced, technically superior and they have the best philosophy to make war: aim at least own losses (this is why Hitler and Napoleon were not successful!). Th USArmy was ib both WW the rescuer of the free nations. In both wars they made the all desisive difference. They are the only ones who could beat the resilient Germans.

Yeah, it all sounds like what I used to hear on the streets of Manhattan (NYC) as a kid - "my Pop can beat up your Pop". So what's the point - who is more willing to "die for their country"? During the start of the Civil War in the USA, armies gloriously marched marched off to battle, trumpets blaring, drum's a -rattling, women and children bouncing along beside them, but 600,000 of them died just to make the Carpetbaggers and Robber Barons richer. War has NEVER been glorious, it's ALWAYS been hell. Ask the survivors of Dresden in Germany or Hiroshima in Japan. Ask the surviving Marines of the Island-hopping campaign in the pacific how they liked WW-2. Just to put a point to it, ask the returning troops from the Middle-east wars how they like what the VA has done for many of them when they needed care. In many cases, they still can't get a primary-care physician for about a year, and their suicide rate is 7 times greater across the board than it is for civilians. From beginning to end, it's all the biggest ongoing con-job on the planet to DIVIDE AND CONQUER the people in order to make them good little slaves.

Why is it that all of the special forces around the world, especially the US's GB's,seals and rangers, all say they are the best. What no one remembers is that Canada's still the country training them. Everyone thinks," oh canada is 15th on the strength list, there not strong at all." well if that's true why does every country want Canada to train thier military. We have the best force worldwide. We don't have the budget or the numbers of the US. But we still have the heaviest hardest training to be an elite. Remember nine out of ten top soldiers are washed out of the JTF2 over all. That's 90% for those who can't do math. Compared to the 40% of the American elite forces. Hmmm and who has the bigger budget?? Enough said.

Th US military is the most powerful in the world. The US ARMY however, given it's size and firepower, is quite poor. Tactically they generally need massive superiority and firepower in any conflict to prevail (Bastogne in WW2 aside). I took part in excercises with the US Army with the British Army acting as the 'enemy' and it was embarrasing how easy it was to outwit standard US Army units again and again. Different story against the Seals and Marines, but they are a small part of US Forces.

Just HAD to add, so you can check it - first meeting with Japanese in WW2 resulted in 5 KIA for us 240 for the Japanese. 20,000 Japanese marines including South Pacific Regiment landed on AN ISLAND and were met by 542 of us (not USA but US) we were pushed back but at irrowaiba ridge made a stand and from there pushed what was left of the Japanese BACK! NOT trained by the UK . NOT trained in FIJI, a place called Kunungra and Puckapunyal and Singleton and other places! Indonesians, Filipana's etc COME here to train - not the other way around. In the Philippines Green Berets operate in Mindanao and some of our special forces do to. It's not supposed to be known because the Philis constitution forbids it, but hunt around, its out there. US has overwhelming fire power but not overwhelming best trained men, good men but in Vietnam MORE US officers actually died by being shot in the back by their own men than in combat at the hands of the VC. ONE last point - up to the LAST 6 MONTHS of WW2 there were more British Army, Navy and Air Force ops in direct conflict with the enemy on ALL fronts than US troops in direct conflict - once again information that is available but conviently either not checked or NOT remembered!

One country in the world spends more to put soldiers in the field than the US.Only ONE country - it is NOT the U.K. They won many a fight the US got credit for in the Pacific in ww2. First to push a Japanese invasion back in to the water in WW2. First to stop a German Blitz in WW2. Not gonna tell you who it is but I find this sort of stuff just so offensive. It pits one agains the other, thats dumb! And you and me take the bait!. My country is as large as yours. Total population about the same as greater NYC. Travels out of season to compete at sports - travels many thousands of miles to do so, comes about 4th or 5th every summer olympics and sometimes pushes for 3rd. Dont crap on about abilities!

China may have a much bigger army that the US, but can it deploy outside its own borders or the borders of countries next to it like Korea? Can it invade North America for instance? USA can invade most countries on this planet. Of course; while we could invade China, they would probably overwhelm us quickly. Not saying we should, just pointing things out. You have to be able to deploy, that means ships, organization, communications, satillites, etc. USA number one in all counts.

It's tough for people to put aside political ideology and vote objectively on a poll like this. I think, from an objective standpoint, rankings would have to go: China, U.S. India, Russia, then from there the G8 Nations not already mentioned (leaving out Japan, which has no standing military, and including Pakistan, which is not G8): UK, Germany, Canada, Pakistan, France, Italy (in that order); then, of the smaller nations, S Korea, N Korea, Vietnam, and Israel. This is just based on overall military capacity + general equipment, training, apparent readiness.

All modern war technology has something to do with germany. I mean even the atomic bomb has been mostly developed by german scentists. For gods sake they lost WW2. But their military power nowadays still is outstanding. Even though they lost most of their military scientists and also a lot of other important scientists through WW2. They still kept the knowledge and are still able to construct outstanding industrial and technical products. So as far as the world knows they are still the leading nation in engineering cars and machines. But they seem smart enough not letting the world know what other technology is/are or has been developed for military purposes. So a ranking of german military from 3 to 5 is a solid rank to place them.

I dont know much about their combat prowess, I can say in World War 2 if their tanks were more fuel efficient - especially the Tiger - they would have lasted much longer, probably won. They also have very good industrial capabilities, so their hardware is at a standard usually higher than other countries. And I'm Australian too, not German. But I still love Germany :D

one guest is asking why germans are always on the wrong side. I would say they are always on the right side when they are on their own side. Why should they not defend themselves from attacks. They followed once a misleading leader. But which nation had not? At the moment they are on the very right side. They are in the NATO and they protect Israel. They helped Europe and the free world in many battles since two thousand years. They had a great share in defeating the islam threat in the 8th, 16.th and 18th. century in a couple of battles in which the German talents got their display. Mostly they were on teh side of the winners. Besides, you should not believe movies. They are often propaganda and entertainment.

I'm British, and the UK does have some superb military forces, but the German soldier is unsurpassed and the German Army has the best leadership at NCO level - most important in a combat situation. The German forces in WW1 and WW2 were man for man better than any other army and it took the 3 greatest industrial powers in the world to defeat them in BOTH conflicts. Their discipline and resourcefullness is second to none and GSG9 are a match for any other special forces

The most important weapon in any war is the people. The German nation would not tolerate any kind of large-scale aggression from Germany ever again. I live here and know what I am talking about. Their army is brilliantly equipped, and their soldiers are well trained, but feel guilty about fighting – Fact! The truth is that some countries have fought wars recently and some haven't... Some have won and some have lost. The last war the UK lost was the American war of independence. British soldiers have been cutting their teeth around the world for 250 years nonstop! That's right, the UK hasn't really had peace for almost 3 centuries. Israel the same since WWII – fighting nonstop. A good army is one that has fought and won a lot, just like a football team.... Practice makes perfect.

the things holding china back are lack of tech lack of navy and lack of air force. they will never have the best air force the u.s will always maintain that. the chinese government will also hold back their abilities due to they dont let the best person do the job only personal friends. and the dont pump the money into their military like the u.s they also will have a really hard time keeping their army fed and properly supplied. they are also strategically placed in a crap spot russia to the north the U.S allies south korea and japan to the east and india to the south in a big war they will be fighting a three front war which is nearly impossible even with the numbers. and the loyalty of the soldiers relies on the conscripted soldiers beliefs and morals. even if they become the strongest in the world which is mathematically improbable they cant do much with it considering all the other super powers are allies it would be a nazi germany situation.

just a year back a home returning gorkha after teriement, from the indian army, about 35 years old stood up against a gang of 40 robbers in a train in india, trying to protect a girl from being abused. He had just his khukuri with him against swords and guns. He killed three and injured around eight of the robber with the rest running for their lives. He was injured too but was able to save some heavy amount of loot and most importantly the girl.

While I think the Russian military should be ranked in the top five, I do not think they should be number one or even two. In my opinion even there most high speed units, such as the VDV lack communication and coordination abilities. CAS and ART missions, the USA would fine easy to accomplish; proved difficult for the Russians against Georgia in 2008. The Spetsnaz have the comm and coordination abilities between branches that the US standard Infantry has. Sorry guys but the Spetsnaz don’t make up a big enough part of the Russian military, to make up for the conventional forces lack of equipment and capabilities. The Military as a whole in Russia is outdated and run down. While I expect this to change and progress rapidly in the next decade, this list is current; not projected. Nukes are a different story all together. Russia is by no means a paper tiger and deserves to be in the top five. Tough SOB troops, just not equipped like they should be!

Canadians regularly beat the USAF in the Top Gun competitions, we were the original Storm Troops in WWI, and we burnt the first White House down. And yes, we're too Canadian to say we're in the Top 5, but we're in the Top Ten. Happy Bicentennial of the War of 1812, yanks!

Canadian troops were known as the shock troops of the allies during the both world wars. Small force but highly trained and vicious. Rommel is quoted saying if he had command of the Canadian troops no army in the world could have stood against him.

Canada badly needs to increase its military spending and develop a navy proportional to the size of its coastline. Russia is its natural enemy and conflict this century is inevitable as global warming melts the polar icecaps allowing free navigation and use of the NW Passage.

Canadians have a history of being able to acomplish great things in battle despite being smaller in numbers. 1917 Vimy Ridge. This was the first time all of the Canadians fought togeather in WW1. Vimy had been a key point in the war and the French and British had both failed trying to capture it. At this time Canada had been a country for 50 years and were still pretty small in the eyes of the world. Vimy Ridge changed that. Also on in 1944 on D-Day despite being the smallest of the allied forces we were the only one able to acomplish the goal to clear the beach and push into France. No disrespect to the US or the British but they fell slightly short of the mission objectives. Canada shouldn't be top 5 for sure but we are higher than 21.

Canada is one of the smallest armies in the world. I am a canadian but i just want to say this... WE KICK ASS. Small numbers, but (nd i dont want to start a argument here :P) We pretty much lead WW1 (behind britain) and WE were a massive part in WW2 the us didnt even want to be in ww1 or ww2 until they were ACCIDENTLY attackd by germany (2nd world war) and accidently attackd my austria-hungary in world war 1. you guys didnt power house world war one, canada,france,and britain did! i think canada should have atleast number 5. we only have a small army because of a small population, but i gotta give this to the us: "There is strength in numbers." I am very greatfull that the us is our big brother, cause withought echother we would be 3rd world countries, i would die if anything happend between our alliance. our alliance are like brother and sister.

Being a Canadian soldier myself: many underestimate the Canadian Forces, but we do have one of the best fighting forces in the world, and one of the best trained since we are smaller, therefore, have more time and money to train. In fact, a Reg force infantry soldier has the same experience of a US Army Ranger rifleman once they complete their infantry training. (I hope saying that doesn't start a debate). That is why an army buddy of mine says we're like the Greek Spartans! We do have money problems, and lack of political will, but we are growing both in strength and numbers since the "Decade of Darkness" (the 90's) where funding was cut and the forces suffered from a poor public image. Canada's mission in Afghanistan, and the growing number of recruits in the ranks, has proven this. I just wish we had a better navy, with air craft carriers.

Qualitatively, industrialized nations with larger militaries are probably going to score higher. France's army is about the 13th largest in the world. Their financial expenditures on their military, however, are 4th highest, so probably more technology emphasis than focus on number of personnel. Aside from that, people are probably going to vote up or down based on what they think of the country or some opinion about a country's special forces or commandos, etc. These things get voted up or down a lot depending on who visits the website and how they vote. The person who made the original comments did not make this list, it's open to public voting.

Australia's special forces destroyed all of Iraq's forces in the Western Desert of that country in the month before the war was announced during Desert Storm. They did this at the cost of 20,000+ Iraqi troops to 0 Australian casualites. Australia defeated Indonesian insurgents in East Timor at the cost of 2 guys injured. Australian troops in Afghanistan have lost 32 dead and 226 wounded in a period of 11 years. This last figure is considered problematic, but it breaks down to 3 dead and 20 injured per year against hundreds of Taliban dead. Still, there is room for improvement apparently.

I really dont think you should be criticizing arab armies because in the dark ages, the arabs were advancing while europeans were dying and the crusades were the same too, Look at the Umayyads, the Abbasids, the Seljuks, the Ottomans. Remember Gallipoli, where the Ottoman bravely defended their home land. Even after that, the muslims fought for indepedence like Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Pakistan. Arabs and Muslim fight for religion and have a purpose.

The reason why serbian soldiers were happy when they came out of their bunkers were because they were relieved they did not have to fight another losing ground battle.

I would think that most of the old school Recces that still wanted to be involved in military activities, would probably still be involved as contracted mercenaries.

Mexico Report Abuse
525 points - added 3 years ago by guest - 8 comments
Comments:
Two comments. 1; to the comment that the DEA has the gives the Mexican law enforcement their missions that are too tough. 2; the comment about the Mexican Marines. I can wrap up these two comments in one. It is their job. Is is absurd that you say the US gives the Mexican law enforcements the jobs that are too dangerous. If you were even remotely inept, we wouldnt have to be there. The Cartel is not tougher than any other foe. Militaries around the world face tough opponents each and every day. That is why they join. Because they have a believe.The reason the cartel has such a stronghold only confirms how weak the policies are. The Cartel should be writing stories about how tough the Marines are....not vice versa.

Mexican Federal Police are super elite. 1-5 officers are killed each month fighting the drug cartels. Mexico is a great country with a history richer then most others in the world.

The Mexican Marines are some tough guys. Mexican Marines or Marinas Mexicanas as they are called in Spanish helped catch a top drug cartel member and the media made the mistake of letting one the Marines names out and the cartel members killed his mom, aunt, and two sisters. Basically they killed everyone who was at his home of address, if he had been there with his wife and kids they would have killed them too. This shows how tough the Marinas are because they are not afraid of going after these brutal cartel members who are not afraid or do not care about killing family members and children.

I'm biased cause I am American and grew up thinking the Marines were the best in the world, I served four years in the US Marines and tried out for recon. In my experience the toughest military people I have met or have heard about through other military members were the US Marine Force Recon, US Marine Scout Sniper, Navy Seals, Army Rangers, Green Berets, Delta Force, British SAS, British SBS, US Air Force Pararescuemen, US Coast Guard Search and Rescue teams, French Foreign Legion, Mexican Federale, Mexican Fuerzas Especiales (Mexican Special Forces), Mexican Drug Smugglers,although smugglers are not officially military and are seen as negative, I have met some that have been in the most violent situations I have ever been told. Now the military members I have known had been in some violent situations, the smuggler is the only to go into detail about what he had been through. I'm not saying the Smuggler is better or tougher then the military men I have known. I'm just saying that they never went into detail about the situations they had been in. Even though I know they had been in some hairy situations.

The fact is the S.A.S went over to America in 2013 to see how the quality of training was compared to the U.S navy seals,and in a report that came out in England and in certain published papers in america the S.A.S completely dominated the seals in both combat and tactical excersises, so no way should we be ranked 26th.

Portugal had three open battle front during the colonial war, and after ten year, only guine bissau was lost, angola and mozambique were pacified, but colonialism is wrong and portugal ended to give freedom to those country. The first naval infantery was portugues, and portugal has been capable of maintain souverany since year 1139. Most of the country mention here were ones ocupied by other countrys.

Tiny Portugals navy and army was strong enough to contest with the biggest might in the 16.th century which was at that time the Holy Roman Empire with their German-Hispano outreach to rule the world. And they did it successful for one hundred years. Therefore the Portuguese merit respect.

In the Battle of la lys they had to deal with the Germans in WW I. This action was one of the greatest defeats ever suffered by Portuguese forces. The 2nd Portuguese Division, with approximately 20,000 men and commanded by General Gomes da Costa (later President of Portugal), lost about 300 officers and 7,000 men killed, wounded or taken prisoner. Despite the defeat, acts of remarkable bravery were shown by the Portuguese soldiers.

Defeated many Spanish army, Napoleon army, and the German army at WWI at Batlle of La Lys, where the Portuguese were out number 5 to 1 (100000 Germans against 20000 Portuguese), and with only 88 guns, they manage to stop the Germans from advance.

The Filipino soldiers are good and brave fighters. They never step back in any battle and has the courage to face the challenges in the battlefield. If only it has the most modern military hardware in the world, even the US can hardly defeat them.

Filipino army is a great soldier ever, The Filipinos are a brave fighter soldiers, frontliner soldiers, they are well trained soldier, inexperienced in combat even lacking equipment. If you only remember korean war in the Philippine soldiers is one of the countries help South Korean to protect this country in the invaders. Philippines sent five batalion in 1950-1955. Of 7,420 Filipino soldiers only 112 of them KIA to defense Korea's Freedom. In battle of Yuldong, battle of Miudong, Battle of Hill Eirie, hill Arsenal and many more battle in Time of Korean War. Remember: Among those sent to stop the attack were 7,420 Filipino Soldiers. They Faced 40,000 Chinese troops Soldiers. They have only triples, machine, mortars, and howitzers to stop them. They also had two light tanks, few's bazooka's that did not work, and not all of them have winter clothing. the communist attack while overwhelming so British and Puerto Rican's on the left retreated. while Turkish on the right also fell back. But Filipino's Soldier stayed and kept fighting. Everybody joined to fight including drivers, clerks and cooks. the Filipino's fought hard against all odds. They held the line preventing the Chinese and more Korean's. Chinese lost 7,000 soldiers. while Filipino's lost 112 soldiers As they fulfill the responsibility they support South Korea and we see the different of qualities of Filipino's Soldier. I Proud to be Filipino!!!!!!.... We shall Fight the "Rags" oppressor and invader!!!!!!!!

the philippine army is very good because they trained every terrain possible but the tchnology is poor, the army doesnt have main battle tanks not even 1 the vehicles you see in the magindanao martial law are only light tanks and APC since the Americans had left the Philippines in the 90's we have no strong defense on land. 2nd surface to air missiles because its important to defend the atmosphere that air raids or even bombing in the air is imminent and we have nothing to defend us with but only guns. 3rd artillery the mobile ones because we need to establish order to Mindanao and fight the MILF because it cross rage in the country, artillery can destroy anything we want, we could surely buy at least 5 MRLS to secure the safety of the people. 4th an aircraft that is a multirole, jet figther and ground attack aircrafts to secure air superiority to the sky and defeat easily the rebels, we need also surveillance to see the movement of enemy from the sky and bombers as well. 5th attack helicopters to secure the air superiority in the philippine sky. 6th are submarines to srcure the depths of the philippines. 7th is destroyers cruisers to bombard enemies from shores. 8th aircraft carrier after you had done the 7 things you can buy that particular thing for the new flagship of the philippines. 9th ballistic missiles but this is optional. If the economy flows very well and it is rich we could buy and do this things..

Without a doubt, the Colombian Army, soldier for soldier, pilot for pilot, is the most efficient army in the world. Not only is Colombia the oldest constitutional democracy in the world (after the USA) and has had to defend its borders from foreign and domestic enemies exceptionally well, but it has some of the oldest armed forces in the free world. No army in the modern world has ever been able to act in the extraordianraly efficient way as the Colombian army has, given the nation’s GDP ratio to its investment. While the USA spends well more than 50% of its GDP in defense, the Colombian taxpayers get far more bang for their investment. Israel does indeed have an exceptional armed forces as well, as does France, BUT, I can assure you that the Colombian army, which has the distinction of being comprised by highly educated and collaborative (fraternal-like) soldiers can outperform any other army in the world, ounce for ounce. The Colombian army is the only one in the world that can also boast that despite its diversity on religion, race and gender, there is virtually NO discrimination to ever be found within this incredible, honorable group of fighting professionals (and it is no wonder that there is so much disinformation about Colombia perpetrated by its enemies). I am a United States citizen who now lives in Colombia, for its beauty, culture and SAFETY!

Many people ignore Colombia and its military power. If you look at GlobalFirePower, they don't even include the country, which has a population bigger than Spain and Argentina's. It's simply ignored, althouhg it's somewhere arounf the top 20 in population, and has the secoind biggest active army in Latina Amarica. Brazil 197million people - around 310,000 troop. Colombia 46 million people - around 290,000 troop. It may not have the greatest equipment, or budget, but if manpower is the THING at war, plus experience, the Colombian army should be ranked high. Yes, The Commandos (with over has been won by Colombia for four years in a row. Another clue: Colombias COPES training is so tough, it has only graduated 750 officers since its establishment in 1984, 150 of which were foreigners. This includes personnel from Latin Amaerica, the Middle East, Far East and even Africa. Most of the foreigners who come to train here: Brazilians and Ecuatorians, who have later also done well in this competition. They helped train the people who founded the BOPE-Brazil (fact which will never be admitted by these). Just check the dates and records! They also have the commando JUNGLA training, since 1989, where you will find local military giving training to new personnel, as well as to soldiers from over 20 other countries. BOPE still sends personnel to train in Colombia. In the Escola Superioir de Guerra de Colombia, founded in 1909, there are currently 685 students (in 2010), from Colombia and countries such as Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Mexico and Peru.

They are the best since they successfully destroyed the most modern and the most ruthless terrorist organisation in the world which is the LTTE who pioneered the suicide bombs. The army special forces are trained by Isreal Special Forces and among the best in the world

Sri Lanka Army is the most experienced in wilderness face to face combat. not only special force all the other regiments have equal experience in combat. and those who render their service as UN peace keepers are also showing their abilities and experience. though they are lack of technology they can end up a mission without a single scratch.

No more any doubt, Sri Lankan army is the world best army in the world. Because they are the army who eradicate a terrorism organization completely. As well as LTTE organization was the most ruthless terrorism organization in the world and it was on the top of the list of powerful terrorists organizations... Still other countries trying to struggle with terrorists for a long time. Some are having supreme power of the world.... But Sri Lankan soldiers done it less than 3 years........

As Usual, some idiots found a way to argue about the ethics of the wars fought. Fact remains, SL army alone is 200,000 strong while it has the best Battle-hardened special forces and commandos in the world. I personally see lot of mismatches in this list, where super powers are actually downgraded. So dont think anyone should take this list seriously.

Actually what happened was,lot of countries tried to pull back Sri Lanka from destroying terrorism.. and LTTE had lot of supports from various nations.. Finally as an unstoppable force, the nation's political leadership together with the military forces destroyed the terrorism.. but still some of the individuals somewhere from the world believe that the LTTE was the representative of Tamils... sometimes those people haven't even came to the country, and haven't even talked to a real Sri lankan Tamil brother who has suffered LTTE's cruelty for more that 30 years.. I'm a sri lankan.. and I believe our military is the best in warfare, protecting human rights and even in helping our own Tamil brothers.. (and friends!! LTTE is a history now.., It is totally vanished.. so any LTTE fan, please save your stories to tell your grandchildren.. )

Sri Lanka army is the world greatest army. Because our brave soldiers could eradicate world most ruthless, babarian, dangerous terrorism organization from sri lanka. But, now America who has super fire power still couldn't defeat Taliban or Alcaida.

Supuntc ur really funny... Sri lankan army didnt won the Great LTTE with there own Note Down this... But because of the mistake done by the indian central government only the indian force helped the Srilankan army to defeat our own Blood LTTE Brothers. In Clear to say Srilankan army cant even fought with the LTTE its the real truth and each and every person in this world know about the TAMIL LTTE Power. So shut ur mouth and try to protect ur country from the LTTE as this is not the ENd Of LTTE. And in over all INDIAN ARMY IS the best in the world.

ROCMC is worldwide renown for it’s tough training and as one of the best force in world. The ROC Marine elite corps of frogmen are officially called the Amphibious Searching Unit of the ROC Marine Corps. Their motto is: "Let the high mountains bow and the deep seas give way before us." In war, they serve as a spearhead of the armed forces. They must slip into enemy occupied territory before a major attack. Their task is to destroy the barriers facing a landing force, pinpoint enemy pillboxes and map airports and sandbars. On the sea, they are taught to maneuver rubber boats while combating the enemy and detonating targets. On the land, they are trained in long-distance jogging, demolitions, searching, surveillance, hand-to-hand fighting and guerilla warfare. In the mountains, they learn to scale cliffs and cross ravines.

There is no debate on this topic. The US Army is the 2nd best in the world. The US Marines are the 1st. They are also supported by the USAF who are the largest and most sophisticated airforce in the world, followed by the US Navy who have the 2nd largest. It's just idiotic for anyone

I'm biased cause I am American and grew up thinking the Marines were the best in the world, I served four years in the US Marines and tried out for recon. In my experience the toughest military people I have met or have heard about through other military members were the US Marine Force Recon, US Marine Scout Sniper, Navy Seals, Army Rangers, Green Berets, Delta Force, British SAS, British SBS, US Air Force Pararescuemen, US Coast Guard Search and Rescue teams, French Foreign Legion, Mexican Federale, Mexican Fuerzas Especiales (Mexican Special Forces), Mexican Drug Smugglers,although smugglers are not officially military and are seen as negative, I have met some that have been in the most violent situations I have ever been told. Now the military members I have known had been in some violent situations, the smuggler is the only to go into detail about what he had been through. I'm not saying the Smuggler is better or tougher then the military men I have known. I'm just saying that they never went into detail about the situations they had been in. Even though I know they had been in some hairy situations.

true, modern, well trained, motivated, proffesional, and balanced (army navy air force) while many of the region armed forces rely mostly on the army, chilean armed forces are equally strong, chile is the third best army in south america, after Brazil and Colombia, and third mainly because precisely their officers are trained in Universities and lack of combat experience, overall Chile is one of the worlds finest armies and should be among the top 25
