    However, the fact the USA had their arses handed to them in Vietnam, Korea and very nearly Japan paints a very different picture of the "wonderful" Americans. Why don't you crawl back into the hole you came from you stupid little Yank.
    Well, you got caned by a bunch of yankee farm boys so what have you got to brag about? That was before a bunch of Dutch speaking farmers kicked ten tons of crap out of you of course. And before you got your butt pounded in India and kicked out of God knows how many countries by the local peasantry.

    More recently, as soon as the heat got too much for you you're army retreated into Basra airport and of course it is the Americans who are leading the surge in Afghanistan having been to miserably let down by your ill equipped, unmotivated, and sloppy soldiers.

    You literally are retarded.

    Our asses weren't "handed to us" in Vietnam. We lost, yes, but it's not like we got absolutely butt raped in it. Please, take a look at the kill ratio before you start spewing.

    Same goes for Korea and Japan. We won both of those, if you recall.

    Forgetting about the fact that we got lots of US troops here anyway, I think it would be pretty close as no country has launched such a big amphibious assault before. Think about it, their invasion force would have to sail across the Atlantic getting bombarded by the RAF and RN the whole way, and then China or Russia would probably take advantage and invade the US.
    Result: UK loses & USA loses.
    That's not how invasions work. Look at the battle of britain. The invasion force was poised, but first the luftwaffe had to eradicate the RAF to prevent the invasion force from being attacked on the way over.

    The big difference, apart from sheer size, is that the USAF isn't incompetently commanded. We got lucky in WWII. Luck wouldn't even be a factor if USA went for us.


    @Delta. Kill ratio isn't all that. 26 million Russians died in WWII. Less germans died, but they lost. The main problems with Vietnam for the USA was underestimation of Vietnamese forces and determination, and local terrain lending itself to high casualty warfare - too high to be tolerated.

    Yes. We dropped two great big bombs on Japan. I'm surprized the OP hasn't read about it.

    the UK have far better trained soldiers, however the USA outnumber the UK greatly so unless Allies came into it, i think it would be a case of Mutually Assured Destruction.

    In fairness, they've had tough assignments in Afghanistan, Helmand Province, especially Operation Snakebite, springs to mind.

    Blaming the soldiers is a bit tough when they haven't got the tools for the trade.

    Well, in fairness, I'm not really blaming the British soldier. They always were "lions led by donkeys"

    LOL! You would get within 150 nautical miles of a US carrier.

    Yes. We would, it's happened many a time on exercises in the past.




    Question is pretty much irrelevant, anyway.

    Interestingly, a certain Rommel once said the best army in the world would be Scottish soldiers led by German Officers, exhibiting some of the same disdain you have for the Officer class of the British Army.
