    if you're a citizen of the commonwealth I think it simplifies things a bit but no, I don't think there are any parts of the british army open to non-british citizens.

    The British Army is like any other normal armed forces. It's easy for Canadian citizens to get in, and other members of the Commonwealth, but apart from that they won't take anyone.

    French Foreign Legion > *.Fightingforce

    I'd put my fatass Navy docs (not corpsman, they rule :bigthumb:) up against any form of French military in any kind of battle.

    The only reason the French Foreign Legion is so badass is because all of the Legionnaires are foreigners from other countries and not frenchies :bigthumb:.

    Any Jew around the world between the ages of 18 and 24 can join the IDF, and the length of enlistment is only 18 months through the Mahal program.

    well i guess the foreign legion is the quickiest way to go if you want to be a french citizen..

    serve 3 years and you're in...... and once you're in you can live and work all over europe... i would think it's a decent deal
