FFL, which may well become a reality if certain things don't work out here.
I am already in all of them.
On the other hand, as far as useful experience goes, The Brits and Spetsnaz. have it in spades (although different areas). I don't think anyone is going to argue that the brits wrote the book on on-target reconaisance, and counter-terrorism. Simmilarly,the russians have proven to be extremely adept at penetration and assasination as well as leasing with and enciting terrorism. Although they don't dabble in the latter anymore.
SAS, because im ignorant about the others, and i hear the SAS is the toughest to get into.
In all seriousness, I'd want to join Blackjack. It is the only true guerilla force the U.S. has ever fielded, it's made up of guys from all the services special units.
Barring that, I'd have to say AFPR, or SEALS.

Knights Templar are cool, I live in Edinburgh and Roslyn Chapel is only a few miles away. I went for a look around once and there is some seriously weird stuff going on there.
I'm going to see if I can get The Da Vinci Code for Christmas.
Spetznaz = untimate hardcoreing
other : Halo
and for you videogames poops, yes it exists, no it has nothing to do with what you think.. its like seals that deploy from such a high alititude they are practically in space and they dont deploy their chutes until the last moment..
edit: before some centurian comes to try and school me that halo is a proceedure and not a group, please suck my parts cause i dont know what theyre called but they train in halo specifically.
Speztnaz coz they're the only ones I know of on that list.
Seal Team 6 was disbanded in the early 1990s. DEVGRU is the abbreviation for the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, which is the spawn of / replacement for Seal Team 6.
I'd join Delta Force.
Rangers the U.S. military has to come to YOU to join.
The Russians, because they're so hardcore.
No, not really.
Spetznaz, back in the commie times they got to train with real live targets, with live bullets. They are fncking brutal and have all kind of cool gaddgets and toys. Their training is hardcore. The rest of Russian military is shit compared to its special forces.
Info on GROM:
Only 1 to 5 percent of these candidates actually get into GROM. But once they are in, the real training begins: GROM operators practice "killing house" entries (with commanders often serving as hostages), storm hijacked commercial airliners complete with mannequin terrorists and bullet traps, and lead raids onto ships and offshore platforms. All of this is done with live ammunition.
"Radek Sikorski, Poland's former deputy minister of defense and now executive director of the New Atlantic Initiative, recently told me he witnessed the snipers at their best during a training exercise in 1999. "The GROM operators were working alongside the Delta Force and were tasked with rescuing the chairman of the National Bank of Poland. He was being held hostage by terrorists in possession of a nuclear device." Sikorski says the snipers waited for days in complete disguise. "They just followed the terrorists' routines and then started to pick them off one by one."
GROM operators are said to be martial arts experts and capable of "cold killing." "We created our own style of martial arts," says Petelicki. "I have an old friend who is a master of karate and jujitsu and is a sixth degree black belt. He created the style with other specialists--it is most similar to what the Israelis do."
For the past twelve years, GROM operators have engaged in numerous operations, including peacekeeping in the Balkans and Haiti. In 1997, they successfully captured Slavko Dokmanovic, aka, "the Butcher of Vukovar" who was held responsible for the murder of 260 Croats. Despite being well-protected by Serb commandos, Dokmanovic was successfully captured alive (his bodyguards didn't fare so well).
EDIT: Pics of GROM in Iraq
AFSOC Pararescue jumper
I bet they are less qualified than a Canadian with his SARtech (or whatever they have renamed the qualification).
GROM's pretty badass
The coolest special force in history was the first special service force. The force that started it all.
I bet not.
GIGN - France
None of you know how rough they are.
