You must be a CID agent because that question is ridilous just like a CID investigation, Special Forces is the elite of the elite. when you want everyone dead with no answers they call special forces. The French Legion are retards, I worked with them in Afghanistan, they are not focus, their drunks, and horrible shooter's, so there no. they're not tougher than a squad of Marine from Basic which would probably murder them

A better question is what about the French Colonial troops? The legion had it's moments, but without the support of Colonials, they would have been decimated. Research the French experience in Vietnam, Algeria,Morocco, Egypt, and a thousand other places.
All US military are best supported, and now something to be said about all volunteers. Whoops, The Guard and Reserves get some obsolete equipment, and still do it.
Marines have greater firepower than anyone, but still go in to bad places. A true fighter will not depreciate a different branch or nationality fighter.

The French Foreign Legion is considered an elite fighting force comparable to the Green Berets. This is mainly because they are sent on clandestine missions that the French government doesn't publicly support. They are strictly a combat unit and do not have need of a support staff, since that is taken care of by the French army regulars. Of course, joining them, you have to become fluent in French as part of your training and have no leave priviledges for approx 5 years. They also train to survive in the jungle or desert, since that is where they are directed to serve.

There are individuals in both groups that are extremely tough. I'd say the average French Foreign Legionnaire is tougher than the average Marine though. The training they go through is pure torture and they arn't co-ed. A Marine in 2007 is not quite the same thing as a Marine in 1965. All of the American Armed Forces have been negatively impacted by political correctness and emasculation. This has not happened to the Foreign Legion. They don't have time for that $hit.

They share a lot in common:

like losing in Vietnam or Indo-China as the French call it.

Like being in a draw in Korea,

Like being in a world of hurt in Lebanon (same day suicide bombing of the U.S. Marines the F.F.l. lost 79 guys to a suicide bomber as well.)

As both are based on different military policies with regards size of units, military budget,, types of units in composition, like armour, artilliry, etc..etc..you cant just say "A" is better than "B", both have to be taken on their respective merits, and respective weaknesses.

As representatives of their respective countries they both do an outstanding job and its sad to see people commenting on supposed weaknesses between Allies with a long and noble tradition of cooperation (USA and FRANCE.)
