    • Lol, you have no clue what the fuck you're talking about, but thanks for revealing yourself to be a racist imbecile.

      Your country's fear of immigrants is partially why you're the ugliest people in the world, you have no genetic diversity. Small island, small gene pool. You're a bunch of inbreeds.

    • @Metapotent Yet better looking than Americans, the most inbred Westerners....

      The population defines the gene pool not the size of the "small island" you dumb fuck.

      What a LiveLeak legacy you have, haha!

      Can't even spell "inbred".

  • I find it amusing, (as a serving soldier of 13 years and having worked with US Forces in Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan) that people are getting worked up about this. Obviously you have banter when you work with different countries.

    Ive made a few very good friends amongst our US brothers, indeed travelled to the States to visit them on occasion.

    I think the sheer negativity displayed in this post is by people who never served before in their lives, because 'who's the best' doesnt come into More..

  • Just going on the footage I'd say the USMC has better training exercises.
    But for all you haters I don't think you'd want to face either force in anger.

    • no, they probably dont, the royal marines has the longest period of training of any non-special forces regiment in the world. the royal marines, although small in numbers, are very highly trained and although i cant comment on the usmc, looking at both training programmes the royal marines are much more highly trained.

  • So let me get this right, you're saying the entire Royal Marine force is shit because one guy, on his first tour of duty, shat him self and shot up 4 of his own men? Could say the same for Fort Hood and countless other accounts of fragging, friendly fire, botched operations, over run US FOBs, dodgy missile strikes and so on.

  • and as it stands, that Marine shot up his friends ,they called the mission off, royal marines STRAPPED THEM SELVES TO SOME APACHES, recovered a dead body, and then pulled out. You guys didn't SAVE fuck all. You just went in after we had pulled out because one of our guys had a breakdown. I don't recall seeing any USMC strapped to an apache to recover a body in a stronghold filled with Taliban. I just recall Wanat and a load of US soldiers getting ready to appear on Al Jazeer and calling desperat More..

  • LOL Funny as fcuk i always piss myself when i see this vid.

    It is not the Royal Marines by the way, it is 40 Regiment Royal Artillery. Getting the pissed ripped out of them by the Royal marines.

    But of course Metapotent does not need facts as long as the mis information suits his purpose.

    Although i have to admit, those beach assaults were pretty impressive, even if the were un-opposed, would probably be a different story with an enemy like say the Chinese with all their tanks, artillery and More..

      Was it some Royal Anglican reg, or 40 Reg RA, or RMs? Can'tyou guys admit who it is? next thing you kow you will be claiming it's the Dutch.

    • @grunt Honestly mate it was 40 Regiment Royal Artillery, some of the guys involved in the incident told me about it when i worked with them on Telic 9.

      However it kind of bit our marines on the arse because they always get named and shamed by people who post this vid, as being the ones in the footage, when it was actually them who set it up.

      I don't think i would claim they are Dutch considering they a wearing British uniforms. ;O)

    • really? like gimpo's are? or like half the comments on this thread, which when you actually look at them, also don't exactly have much to do with this video either? except theirs do not get deleted...if it having 'nothing to do with the video' is how you need to convince yourself it was a legitimate reason to remove it then i can only assume you're even more in denial than ever, and the paranoia of having other people read it was too much for you.

    • Hahaha, you're cute.

      You posted a gigantic wall of text that had precisely jack squat to do with the video or anything else of relevance. It was nothing but an insanely idiotic rant where you went on and on in a continuous insult directed at me as an individual. I created a video you didn't like, and I regularly make arguments that destroy your false political beliefs, so your way of coping is to vent your anger in psychotic outbursts, apparently.

  • IT DOES NOT TAKE A HERO TO ORDER MEN OR WOMEN INTO BATTLE. IT TAKES A HERO TO BE ONE OF THOES MEN AND WOMEN WHO GOES INTO BATTLE.

    In the military, people will shoot at you, or throw stuff at you, even fire great big rockets at you. The colour of your uniform is the least of your worries.
    It dosn't matter which country you come from, you should be PROUD to wear the uniform.

  • USMC = all the gear, no idea.
    RM = 1 royal marine > 1000 USMC
    USMC selection is a joke of a process that my 12yo son could pass. Whereas no usmc could pass royal marine selection. US is all about quantity not quality. But then what can you expect from a bastard colony with more money than sense and the biggest gdp deficit on the planet.

    • The US Marine Corps is a more capable force, and that's not just due to its larger size. The US military is not about quantity over quality, again that's a myth you Brits rely on to shield you from a reality that is too harsh for your pride. It's pretty ironic you pretend your troops are better considering your forces are continually shown to be inferior to the US troops, not only in absolute terms but pound for pound.

      Example, Jugroom Fort in Afghanistan:

      The biggest joke is on you yanks thinking you have a clue about soldiering.
      And unlike you yanks, i am not "pretending" that our troops are better pound for pound. I find, generally speaking, that you yanks have a lot to say and its all ego. You want to compare a nation of 60mil with a country of 260mil. Thats the kind of odds you need to win any argument.
