"Wars should be like taking off Band-Aids: If a country can't get it over with fast, maybe it shouldn't think about shedding blood. When a country is this bad at war, it probably runs the risk of just slowly bleeding to death. There are many, many examples of this in both history and in today's newspapers and we've collected our favorite examples. This episode of "Fixer Upper: Armed Forces Edition" has seen a lot of changes since 2015.

Since the last list of the world's worst armed forces, Iraq turned the whole "losing half the country" thing around and started showing up for work, so its army is probably a little better now and that meant it was time for a new list of the World's Worst.

I regard the list as poor. So many countries out there with armies worse than Russia, Turkey and others. The metrics for determining the list is very nebulous.
What about Nepal, Madagascar, Ecuador, kajikastan, Georgia. How can Ukraine be rated better than Russia.makes no sense.
