If not which country's army is the strongest?
My top 5 (in no particular order since they all have different strategies and focuses):
I would have to say that if you consider which countries have effective land forces, special forces, naval forces, airforces, and strategic bombers
(face it, they are a major part of modern conventional war), then this would describe Russia and the US nicely. China has a powerful military aswell,
but they still have to prove themselves at some point.
Russia and NK can defend well against an attack, but the US still reigns supreme. We, as citizens...and unofficial warriors, would dominate any
That being said, I firmly believe that our (U.S.) troops could still take out the chinese or NK on a 10 to 1 / 20 to 1 scale. I only hope war never
comes around between the US and those asian countries.

I clearly stated my list was in no particular order.
And do you suffer from American Exceptionalism Syndrome or something? I posted a list, and you posted that the US is superior to everything and its
citizens can fight. The world isn't out to invade the US.
Realistically speaking, US has an offensive military. They are designed to invade countries, not defend Fortress America. Any real strategist
planning to fight Americans will plan to engage them anywhere else in the world other than the US. Foreign armies don't need to invade the US to
And you really think your civilian population even stands a chance against an invasion? Because they are all trained by ultra-violent movies and
video games? The American population wouldn't last very long against an invasion because they would expect the government to step in and save them,
and look what happens when the government can't/doesn't (like Katrina); it all turns into anarchy and distrust of the US government.
