if you value your life, never EVER say that to a para (especially in a bar [not that you're likely old enough yet]) because he will turn your pint of bitter into a bloody mary

it was a genuine question.   I mod on another site, and I've noticed an upsurge in young turks posting in the following vein:
our army can whup your army
our tanks are more modern than yours - ipso facto they shoot further, faster and never break down
our special forces teach the USN Seals and SAS about jungle warfare - ipso facto your specwarries are pussies
our specwarries have more experience, but I can't tell you what they do as its classified (always the failsafe response)
we have 100,000 men, you only have 25000, ispo facto we will crush them like a bug (I love the "mass = capability" proponents!

tell me if the uprising declines next week and we'll know for sure...
i think we can both safely say, a certain someone here is of that age range, too bad he doesn't have any studying to do or homework stuff.
