Because it's....pretty much all he ever talks about, even when nobody else in the room brought it up.

On a related note, hey, how about that Animatrix, huh?)

I going to say the Marines. Mainly because of the tank. One shot can scare the Roman legion and making them think it is a monster.

I don't mean to sound overly critical of the USMC but calling them highly trained is a bit much. From what I've seen of them they lack operational discipline and frankly a shockingly high number of friendly fire incidents. So much so they call it friendly fucking for crying out loud.

And let's face it the Americans have never been good at handling being surrounded and outnumbered. Most of the major American victories in history have happened when they either a) had a clear numerical superiority or b) a clear logistical superiority. And usually both most of the time.

Then there is the sheer language barrier . Even if the this MEU felt like recruiting locals or hiring mercenaries I doubt they could. Mainly since few people in the modern world speak either Latin or Ancient Greek well enough to hold a conversation. Let alone discussing the intricacies of military training and strategy.


I got to agreed with you. We used to have a well trained military. My dad used to be in the army, now when he sees some soldiers, he can tell how untrained they are. I don't know about the Rangers though. I have a lot of respect to our special forces.

I was picturing it how Roman would react.. They'll probably slowly move closer and stab it few time with their spears and can hear weird noise.

Of course one fire can probably easily destroy lot of Roman since its unknown to them.

I noticed the Movie "Rome sweet rome" isn't out yet, they're still working.. They said that they replace writer.. I copy and paste this from website

Film adaptation

Among those who read the story online was Adam Kolbrenner of Beverly Hills-based production company Madhouse Entertainment. Liking the story concept, he made a deal to represent Erwin and then optioned the movie rights to Warner Bros. Erwin is writing the screenplay. Gianni Nunnari, producer of 300 and Immortals, has been announced as co-producer of the project.[5][8][9]

The film is to be produced by Kolbrenner and Nunnari of Hollywood Gang, with Robyn Meisinger as executive producer. John Ridley, also of Hollywood Gang, is slated to oversee the project for the company.[9]

In 2013, Warner Brothers hired Brian Miller to rewrite the script.[12][13] Miller previously was the writer for the film Apollo 18. In Miller's version of the story, U.S. Special Forces would replace the Marine unit as the time traveling fighting force.[14]
Licensing issues

Techdirt reported that due to Reddit's licensing terms, Erwin may not have had full ownership of the story he wrote, and may not have been able to fully transfer those rights to Warner Bros.[3] Concerns were raised due to Erwin's creation of the story in the Reddit forums occurring with and through participation and input from other Reddit users. The issues then became those of whether or not Erwin actually had the right to grant exclusivity to Warner, and that Reddit itself may own rights to those portions of the story created and shared on their website. While the concept of modern military forces involving themselves in conflicts with less advanced cultures is a common theme in science fiction (e.g. G.I. Samurai), in order to claim exclusivity, Erwin may be required to rewrite the story to remove those portions created through input of Reddit users.[3][15][16]

On October 21, 2011, Reddit administrators explained that the licensing terms were designed to protect the site from potential legal action,[17] and that they did not intend to block the production of the movie.[18]

This time its not Marine, but US Special Forces to replace Marine, in this changes in the story.

I'm surprised nobody has yet mentioned this yet, but here I go. The relative fighting force of the USMC vs the roman legion is irrelevant.

Because, every marine would have on their person and in their body's, millions of pathogens. Bacteria, viruses and fungi that have a 2000 year jump on the immune systems of the Romans. It only takes one super bug to wipe out a significant share of the population, as the flu did in 1918. But in this case, the Romans would be able to contract any and all infections the marines had dormant with in them, because they would have no working antibodies to defend them. There would be massive simultaneous outbreaks of everything from influenza to polio. Whether the Romans win the battle or not within a year their civilization and all it's neighbors will have been destroyed by a plague of biblical proportions. In fact this would probably be the end of Eurasian-African civilization. Much like what happened to the Aztecs when they were invaded by the Spaniards.

However, civilizations in the Americas, and island cultures like those in what is now japan or Australia would likely survive leading to interesting changes to the power balance today.


So, Yes a single unit would be more than sufficient to destroy the entire roman empire


On a side note, the fuel issue for the marines vehicles is easily solved. Believe it or not during ww2 in Germany, most cars and many military vehicles were modified to run on wood. Or rather wood gas as it is called. These gasifyer units can be built from oil drums and tubing in a day, and require only burning wood to run.

A small marine unite against all of the roman empire would lose in the end they would be overwhelmed.
