America is better because we won a majority of the wars we get into.

True, but your recent track record is less than exemplary.

Also, in keeping with the thread; Australia is better because we not only stormed the wrong part of Turkey, we managed to take it, hold the line for bloody ages and then pull off a perfect retreat. And then later in the Kokoda Trail we performed such an incredible defense the Japanese overestimated our numbers by a factor of about 100.

New Zealand is better because nobody can be fucked to attack us.

We don't even need a bloody army.

How is being so useless that nobody can be bothered to attack you a good thing? I mean Australia has all the strategic importance of a watermelon, but at least we have that much.

Not strategically.

then pull off a perfect retreat.
I have to say, in all fairness, this only happened because the Turks stopped firing. Otherwise we would have been slaughtered. They were looking to repel and invasion - not to inflict deaths upon the allies. Albeit they had to do the latter to complete the former.

You should read up on your history a bit more; the Turks didn't even know we were retreating until our forces had already pulled out. It's one of the very few times in recorded military history where a retreat has actually gone right.

Belgium is better because we have a short and easy history without discussions about retreating.

While we're on the subject of the Gallipoli landings, the only thing I remember from some documentary I saw ages ago was a bloke saying about how after some really fierce battle or something, with lots of dead in the no-man's-land, an Aussie yelled out "Play you again next Saturday!".

There's about 25 of the fuckers and the three sarge killed were at point blank range - it's got to be zombies or a bunch of really dumb terrorists with knives.

Yeah, Gallipoli was oddly polite. There's plenty of urban legends of the Aussies and Turks calling a ceasefire to play cricket for an hour, which are probably false, but one thing that is true (if my history teacher is right) is that every now and then both sides would call a ceasefire and get up out of the trenches to collect the dead, supposedly the Aussies would sometimes play cricket during these ceasefires, it's unknown if any Turks joined in or not.
