For one, the US has a better chance of taking over the world than the world has of taking over the US.
Second, I'm a redneck and I can tell you that if an invading army blew up my place of occupation and put me out of a job and threatened my family I'd be thrilled to fight. Hell to be honest this is the scenario I daydream about; protecting American soil with lethal force would be like a dream come true. And the sad thing is I bet most of my friends would agree. And yes, we're all armed and loaded. (And we do reloads, too.) And the friends that don't agree that this scenario would be cool would still definitely fight. I think Yamamoto said this was the reason invading America was a dumb idea. You'd have to just nuke us. Anyway, peace.

My AK, Bushmaster, 12 Gauge shotty, 9MM, and 22 pistol says that would be dumb, but if you were to invade USA stay out of any city with gangs good luck finding that city, and you deffinetly want to avoid the counrty us rednecks love guns and hate anyone that isn't American. We would love to finally get to blame someone for #7's death. So even if you toppled the strongest Army the world has ever seen good luck getting through the people that owns guns. By the way I don't know a person that doesn't own a least 3 or 4.

You poor deluded non-Americans still may hold onto some sliver of hope that your country could beat the US in a war but, you would be fooling yourself. Compared to other countries we simply out spend you all. Until you put the money into your military comparable to the US, you will never be a superpower. You may have the best trained Cornish pixie army in the world, but we will find them and if they are in concentration, we will obliterate them. Ask the Taliban and tribal Aphgans, no doubt man per man, many of the mujahadeen are top notch fighters. Nothing beats on the job training, especially in war. Peace time training is nice, but actually going out and fighting builds experience and competence. Many of these tough fighters simply ceased to exist when a satellite or laser guided 2000 lb bomb air-bursted over them. Read some of the books out now about the war. The Green Berets did in three months what the Brits, Turrks and Russian couldn't do in the years they were there. It's not just individual troops that matter; it is the combined strategic might that makes the US the lone superpower. Whether your Pixies can beat our Seals is irrelevant, if all the pixies die on the way to the fight? capeche?
Why do you think Britain is our staunchest ally??? Because Britain still has very intelligent people in power.
