Military capabilities and/or economic strengths? If you combine both then the equation changes.

Then there are a number of other parameters to be considered, apart from just numbers:

>Quality of equipment.
>Force multipliers available.
>Quality of training.
>Jointmanship (Level of effective coordination between various wings of the Forces, i.e., Army, Navy, Air force, Marines, Para-military forces and so on in a war scenario).
>Effectiveness of intrinsic logistics support.
>Quality of the higher direction of war. (Top-level commanders).
>Economic/industrial strength to prosecute a protracted war.
>Quality of political leadership.


Considering the above, I would rank them thus:

USA
China
Russia
India
France
Germany
UK
Israel
Turkey
Pakistan

All wrong!

Base on the fact , the Korean war in 1950s, "United Nations" including US, UK, France, and a dozen of other countries against one communist country China. China won the war.

So here is my list:

China,
US,
Russia,
UK,
France,
Isreal,
India,
Japan,
Korea,
.....

Its hard to say since no one really knows what they other guy has got, I'm sure the US, UK, Russia and China all have stuff that they arent letting onto with Russia and China being the most secretive. Plus you have so many countries pooling their resources and sharing technology.

1 USA of course
------------
2. Russia
3. China
These 2 are actually pretty hard to know because of their secrecy and fast advancing tech.
-----------
4. UK
5. Germany
6. France
7. India
8. Pakistan
9. South Korea
10. Israel

If I could include the EU in there which would likely be the battle if anyone outside the EU went to war against any member of the EU then it'd be #2.

I put Israel so low on the list because while they will fight to the last man and do it very effectively they could no put up a sustained fight without major help if the enemy or enemies went in full force.

1.USA with no doubt. No need to Explain why

2.Russia - The soviet may fallen but Russia still have the world largest Nuclear Arsenal and Tanks. Its economy is growing so its military too.This country has a lot of nukes, and a lot of bombers. While naval designs (like the Kirov-class battlecruisers and Oscar-class submarines) are good on paper, they still have quality issues, and accidents are not unheard of. Still, this is a country that has some advantages, and is no pushover.

3.China - china has the right spot to stay on third place. Her economy is growing fastly and consits of a large manpower.This is a force that has quantity on its side, and is rapidly trying to improve its quality.

4.India - Damm sure India has the right to take the fourth place. India is rapidly becoming self-sufficient in a number of areas, and what it cannot produce, it is able to buy. It also has some of the best training in the world, and can give an unsuspecting opponent a surprise. India has enough manpower for its economy and military.The indian Army stands the Third place in the world, The Indian Airforce is the Fourth largest and well trained and also better Aircrafts in the world, The Indian Navy stands in Fight place with consits of Advanced weapons and large body. She plays the main and dominate role on Indian Ocean.

5.Britain - Britan has one of best and advanced weapons with her. Britan may have a small military but its well equipment and advanced technology.While small, this is a force that not only had a tradition of high quality, it has proven as recently as 1982 that it can operate half a world away and still accomplish a difficult mission.

6.France/Germany - France has its own indigenous industry and have a good military. Whereas about Germany .The germany is main leader of the European Union and have a good economy.

7.Japan - Japan is a well grown industrial country and consits of the best economy ever. Its Navy is one of the best in Asia. The military is well

8.Israel- Israel they have one of best military and their industry is exporter of advanced weapons.

9.Brazil - Now a Days Brazil is also becoming has a Major power country. The economy of Brazil is increasing and has enough resources with them.This country is emerging as the dominant military and economic force in Latin America. It operates the only aircraft carrier outside the US Navy in the Western Hemisphere.

10.South Korea - This country has an indigenous naval program that is quite solid, and one of the better armies in the world. The only thing holding it back is a reliance on foreign designs for aircraft, although it is manufacturing F-16s locally.

Most powerful country in the world is Ireland because i live there

thats just an example of many of the opinions in this thread, just cause its my country its the best
i dont really think it possible to rank the countries as such, no one really knows the best
theres way too many factors to consider, technology can render numbers obsolete in some cases but the other way around is truth also in other cases
loyalty, morale, luck, climate, leadership all have roles as well as many other things

To be honest, the "best" doesn't necessarily win. I mean, come on - the "best" military forcein the world (USA), lost to a bunch of peasants wearing flip flops during the Vietnam war...

You people HAVE to factor in political and social situations as well. Does the PEOPLE of those respected nations have the WILL to fight. Most people leave that out when determining military strength, but I can assure you that the public's opinion on a war is MUCH MORE important than how many planes or ships that nation has.

Again, Vietnam showed us that.

You have to ask yourself...what is the point of buying air craft carriers, hundreds of missiles and planes, and subs? Is anyone expecting a real war between nations anytime soon?

And yet the U.S. lost to a bunch of peasants wearing flip flops... The will to fight is more important in war than any amount of ships and weapons. Throughout history, this has been shown true. There's no denying it... so why not incorporate that into ranking Military power?

at pearl hardbor once you look at it, the japs destroyed battleships mostly that would not constitute any form of threat to the japs with advancements in and more reliance on aircraft and aircraft carriers, so basically the japs didn't gain much at pearl harbor since two of the three aircraft carriers of the US i think at the time were out at sea not at pearl harbor and survived...

You do realise that the japanese were fighting the chinese, british india and other countries like Australia as well.

China alone had 1 million japanese soldiers and a large number of japanese fighters fighting there

The US fought in Europe too, and was going through a devastating depression with a lack of food supply. And did the Chinese free the Philippines? Did they ever fight at the Battle of Iwo Jima and win? I think not.

The Vietnamese are a culture who fight to the very last man. The only way to defeat them is to invade the North. To my knowledge, the US couldn't invade the north because it wasn't a war.

A lack of food suppy!!. oh, that explains why they were exporting it under lend-lease to the Soviets and British


And did the Chinese free the Philippines? Did they ever fight at the Battle of Iwo Jima and win? I think not.




Are they the only battles listed in US history books?. Im sure the Australians, British, Chinese and Indians would appricate those battles being labelled as defining moments of WW2 history
