Well I'm not in the military, but I've talked to a friend who has served in Iraq as a sargeant. He doesn't like working with US soldiers, seems to be of the opinion he's more likely to end up dead when they are about! in fact his overall opinion summed up seems to be that the common US foot soldier struck him as being very polite to all, but on average of a much lower intelligence than the UK foot soldiers over there, and a fair percentage of them believed some seriously f**ked up batshit, (his words, not mine!) he went on to tell me that from some of them there was talk of helping bring on armageddon etc. and he'd often get asked if he knew jesus!
