And to say that because 1 of our SOF elements was based in a Brittish design means that we can never be better than them is just pretty dumb. And they while we did learn from them originally that was a long time ago and not really relevant to how things are done now.
Look at it this way.
Not only does our SOF have a bigger budget which leads to better equipment and training funds, we also have a much bigger military pool to pull from allowing us to be more selective. We have also had been at war non-stop since 2001 gaining experience and validating and modifying tactics. That is a almost impossible advantage to beat.

Delta is pretty close to SAS standards but not better then them.
Special Operations is a huge facet of the modern military. Long gone are the days of Division size units deploying. Brigade or smaller is the future. Inferior? I never said the whole British Army is better. Just what society deems best of bunch.
Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken
