Here is a list for us James Bond wannabes. This list looks at 10 of the special forces from around the world that have the honor of being the most elite and – consequently – badass.

You might want to edit the title. I'm not really sure what a basass is? A badass with a bazooka? :lol2:

The most highly trained US Special Ops Force is the US Air Force Pararescue. Their training and fitness greatly exceeds that of Navy SEALs.

From Wiki:
Quote:
 
The process of becoming a "PJ" is known informally as "the Pipeline" or "Superman School."[8] Successfully completing it takes about two years of intense physical and mental effort. Of the many who begin the process, only the most determined will graduate; sometimes as few as four to six from a class of nearly 100. From start to finish the drop out rate is about 90 percent from each class, the highest training dropout rate in the entire U.S. Special Operations community.

edit: the other thing to remember is that some countries' special forces are so secretive (the CIA's SAD/SOG, Canada's JTF2 and China's PLA Special Ops Forces, for example) that it's difficult to assess their capabilities and compare them.
Norris, you fvck up. You fvck up real bad.

Are you trying to tell us that that list isn't definitive? I don't think any of us is going to buy that, RR, after all, it got published on the internet and everything.
I'm low-info, and I vote.

Didn't Lincoln say something like that?

I used to be in the SAS, as it happens, but I don't want to talk about it.

I wonder how many of the SAS are actually Scots. ;)

As I recall, they have only two threat levels, "We' pissed off" and "Let's get the bastards!".
