Considered by whom? Are you considering SEAL teams to be part of Delta Force?
I have a lot of respect for SAS, but how do you measure such a thing? Send them on identical missions and have the enemy grade them? I am retired from the US Navy (Intelligence) and I wasn't ever briefed on SEAL operations or their success compared to SAS or Spetznez (sp?), so I'm not sure how you can be so sure you can make such a statement.
I was under the impression that British and Russian forces had been degraded quite a bit in the last few years due to not having sufficient money for training. Perhaps special forces don't have those problems.
The only thing I've heard about Spetznaz lately is they are good at slaughtering Chetchen villagers. What recent conflicts have they been involved in.
