*Not really objective since that is impossible.*

As everyone knows, the two best armies in the world are those of Belgium and America. [Russia and England both try to come close, but at this point in history, it is clear that they are surpassed.] However, until this point, no-one has objectively figured out who to pick as the best. After painstakingly long research - a couple of minutes in my three months of vacation - I have come to the following conclusion: Belgium takes the prize. Why? Two reasons:

1. Experience. Though Belgian has formelly been founded in 1830, the Belgian people have been waging wars for millenia. The first are recorded by Caesar (Belgae bravest of and what not*). The Belgae waged war against Caesar, and were themselves probably a result of war between Gauls and Germans, a mixture of both. [Which is the reason why Hitler considered them 'Arians'. On the other hand: Hitler also thought, till may 1945, that the allied alliance would fall to pieces, and the Whermacht would triumph.] Thus we can safely say that the Belgae had been waging war long before the arrival of the Roman legions. The United States of America were founded after the war against the redcoats (1775-1783). Thus Belgium easily has 10 times the experience of America.

2. Elite soldiers. In figures, America has both more soldiers and more money for its military, Belgium having an army of 40000 and spending a dazzling 1% of its GDP. However, the Belgian army searches for 'specialists':

'Jaarlijks is Defensie op zoek naar medewerkers die in hun specialiteit tewerkgesteld worden (specialist). (http://www.mil.be/jobs/subject/index.asp?LAN=nl&ID=450)

The American army, however, takes everything it can find. Thus, the Belgian army consists of elite soldiers, trained in maths, science and kicking ass. The American army lacks those extras that make the best army.

*: Note that Belgae =! Belgians

Once they make the "super flag pole" (Working Title), I think they will be the next superpower. One can only hope.

I wouldn't worry. Europe is so peaceful they really don't need "armies".
