    See what bill was saying?
    The sad thing is, half of them are probably better equiped than the British army at the moment too, although from what I've seen of their shooting that don't really mean dick...

    Edit: I dunno what would happen if you wore hella tight jeans.
    Actually happened to me.

    I threw a mid-level side kick to a dude in the pub once during a brawl.

    Didn't notice I'd split my crotch wide open until after the thing ended.

    Heh.

    Anyway, my point was to note that Britain does have the capacity for vigorous and/or systematic violence, alongside the "The Huns, the Mongols...and the Parthians".

    Oh, like a million 5, give or take

    It was kind of a **** statistic - the relevent comparison would be gangs to police since standing armies really aren't that big in proportion to their nations anymore

    plus i would take the british army over a bunch of 50 cent wannabes trying to hustle crack on street corners any day of the week (it would only last a day- a day WHEN THE STREETS FLOWED WITH BLOOD)
