Nice picture. It is interesting that in that thread they were
discussing which country has the best infantry soldiers. I was
surprised that noone has mentioned a rather logical point that of the
multitudes of well-equipped armies in the world, the best soldiers are
likely to be the most experienced and the most motivated ones. I
was under an impression that for while Israelis were considered to be
the best soldiers simply because they are in a perpetual state of war
with the neighboring countries. I suppose the current crop of US
troops is also battle hardened after Afghanistan and Iraq.
Germans as highly as they think of themselves participated in anything
other than training for the first time after WWII in Afghanistan.
