    Hmmmm I reckon UK... we are generally less hated around the world and we have the whole EU on our side. Doesn't the NATO agreement mean that US will be obliged to give us military assistance in a war? Does this count if it is against itself? Also I am sure Russia will be on our side (they are bitter and resentful)... China might help too because no one will be left to stand in their way to dominate the world if American gets ******.

    For these reasons.... I think we will win!

    I think if a situation arose involving attacking allies, treaties and pacts cease to matter, really.

    The entire UK can fit inside Texas 2.843873643 times. I'm bored and grasping at straws as far as finding things to keep myself occupied. Can you tell?

    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.
    I think you misrepresent our soliders. It's not unmotivated/sloppy soldiers. It is a government that won't suppor them with finances etc. As Gen. Sir Mike Jackson recently said our Gov't needs to reassess what they are going to commit our armed forces to and then engage in a SDR on those terms.

    BTW what knowledge of British military training do you have to make so 'accurate' an assertion?

    (Or were you just engaging in this discussion in the same manner as most others in here were, you old kidder you...?)
