Trained by Israeli, and British, South African solders are more armed and more trained than any other country's soldiers.

It is not exact that south africa is the only country in africa that tried to build a nuclear bomb!The oldest nuclear reactor in africa is congo and in the 70s when the DRc used to fine many congoleses nuclear scientists like the late professor malu wa kalenga pushed mobutu for a nuclear bomb.Congoleses were the first black africans to produce enriched uranium of sufficient quality to produce a bomb.Many congolese-produced uranium bars were sold to iran.Pr Fortunat lumu the former congolese commisionner for the atomic energy was arrested on suspicion of masterminding the sale.And up until today,frenchs,belgians and americans want the nuclear reactor to be dismantled.

Are you aware that people die in large numbers during military confrontations?? I'm sure you do, the only reason you're talking like this is b'cos you never witnessed one. From those who have, they never want to again.....Execpt you're one of those internet warriors in foreign countries wishing unrest on your country. I'll soon open a thread exposing that group of Nigerians.

Seriously this is a compliment because what you posted is crap. Which means whoever the author is is dat. So if I say you ain't the author, it might be cos I consider you too smart for this (or not).

So what about algeria, In reality the list goes...

Modern style military
1. South Africa
2. Egypt
3. Algeria
4. Morocco
8. Tunisia

Not modern
5. Libya
6. Nigeria
7. Kenya
9. Tanzania
10. Ethiopia


Having mass numbers means absolutely nothing if you do not have the modern technology to back it up!!!
A group of 1,000 special trained operatives with modern tech can easily take down 100,000 "african" non modern soldiers

Re: THE Top 10 Countries With The Strongest Army In Africa!! by shymexx(m): 8:58pm On Oct 18, 2012
Nigerian Armed Forces shouldn't be on that list...

Real List:
- South Africa
- Egypt
- Algeria
- Ethiopia

- Kenya


The rest of the countries on the continent(including Nigeria) should compete for the nutcrack... undecided

Well Ethiopia tried to fight Somalia many times over the past 600 years. They lost everytime. America tried in 1991 but left, so did the U.N.
