Its a natural thing for people to support their country by saying that their the best in the world or that their the greatest etc etc.
Obviously Iran's military power is nothing compared to the US,but the US are not as strong as they like to think they are.
The greatest weakness is your total reliance on weapon power not man power.
Does that matter?
Of course it does!
When the man power runs out there's no one left to use all those weapons!
And as the links below show,the US is dwarfed by China and India.
It is far easier to make weapons for the people than it is to make people for the weapons.
And if (or when) China and India decide to flex their military strength then America could find itself on the brink of destruction.Indian and Chinese
soldiers,(mainly Chinese) will sacrafice themselves in a way no Us soldier will do.Call it a fanatical fearful devotion to their country;an extremely
difficult thing to fight against.
Oh,i know one of your greatest strengths is your isolation from Europe,the Middle East and Asia,but all it takes is one Central or South American
country to join with the enemy and the tables will most definatly be turned....
I have to agree with magicmushroom,America hasn't fought a "worthy" apponent on its own.In fact,America has never ever been in a war on its
The Korean war involved about 19 countries.
The Vietnam war involved 9 other countries.
The Laotian Civil War involved 3 other countries.
The Cambodian Civil War involved 2 other countries.
The 1st Gulf war involved 2 other countries.
The Kosovo war involved about 12 other countries.
An the War on Terror thats been going since 9/11 involves about 25 other countries.(possibly more.)
So there is nothing to support the claim of the US being able to destroy any country on their own.Unless you used nukes that is.But then you'd find
yourself with very few allies or none at all.
the USA is the new ROME,and of course there will be people who try and stop our manifest destiny.............but get over it,we ARE THE NEW WORLD
EMPIRE,but we only want peace and Democracy.
the new world empire.
The sun is starting to set on America,just like it has with the British empire (and many others.)
Look to the east my friend,there you will find the new Rome.
As for wanting peace etc,the people of America may do,but your government sure as hell don't!
If they did they wouldn't be looking to start a 3rd war with Iran.
They/we still haven't got Afghanistan and Iraq under control yet!
Shouldn't the greatest country on earth be able to deal with armies both smaller in number and weapons,without killing all the people their meant to
be protecting that is??
