"Marine basic is only 13 weeks because yanks are smarter and need less training."
Living as I do in the USA, with two Ex-Marines working for me, I know just how WRONG that comment is T6. For a strat their small unit tactics training and field craft training are not up to much. But that is the case, as the US Military has traditionally had much poorer material to work with compared to its British Counterpart.
What a bloody shambles, that's all I've got to say, what a bloody shambles. I'm vaguely in the TA and I'm not by any stretch of the imagination a combat effective soldier or whatever name your want to give being switched on, and I'm pretty astonished at how for a start redneckish the video is and also how slack they seem to be.
As for Americans being smarter than other people and therefore need less training, can you pull the other one please.

"Gunny, why do they hate us? why did they blow half my Coy to shreds with car bombs? why don't they trust us? why don't they love the good ol' US of A?"
Did a god job of trashing the place, but from an operational and strategic perspective it accomplished the square-root of fcuk-all. Well done girls. All this video did is provide a source of propaganda to the enemy and demonstrate to America's allies what a useless bunch of fcukwits they have chosen to consort with.
For heaven's sake when are Uncle Sam's Misguided Children going to start acting like professionals with a job to do, rather than strutting around like over-rated arrses who appear to have lost the ability to engage in any kind of higher cognitive function? I know a lot of you that I've met are better than that, the overwhelming majority of officers I've met (and taught) are bloody good blokes and sharp as buttons (can't fly for sh1t though), but what the fcuk is the matter with the majority of your ORs? Surely you're not really that thick?
