With all the "So called underground bases" the weapondry, the military spending. Why does any other nation bother in fighting america? how could they win. Imagine the weapons the US will release when a major war happens. no nation even spends 1/6th the amount America does. The wepons they have must be unimagineable. If Dulce, or other bases exist and the stuff thats happening down there is really real it would even be more terrifying. Could Russia even compete with the U.S.A??? Could all of Europe even compete with them?

Who wants the world?

You get all the problems. The US has enough problems. Not to mention paying to fix all he problems.. cough, were already hemorrhaging money into the sand in Iraq and Afghanistan..... money I believe could be well spent here at home.

Stole my thunder. That's what I thought when I read this: Who wants the world??

Big deal about being "President of the World". Every swinging dick out there would be taking a shot at you every chance they got.

Yeah, they probably could. But there is the rub. Ever played a game of Risk? You take over one country after another and as you move from country to country, you have to leave a little bit of your forces behind to maintain control. If you spread yourself too thin, you leave yourself vulnerable to attack and losing control of a country.

So yeah, we could probably take over everyone (except China, perhaps), but we could never *maintain* control.

I suppose its a question best answered not in hyperbole but in actual events and history.

The answer can be found by watching the following clip





Russia and Europe lol....

Wake Up stop believing fox and watching hollywood.

Yeah, unless you kill EVERYONE... and let's be honest... The USA is about the only damned country that actually TRIES to limit civilian casualties so... NO. Our mission (in my opinion) is to keep all the rest of the loons from killing themselves (and us in the process). So three cheers for having to be the planets freeking peacekeeper... a thankless job and a very expensive one.

Someone's missing what's going on in the world....

The US economy is crashing for the sole purpose of bringng all economies down.... And then we'll pop up, be right as rain and have everyone subservient.

Well, it could happen....

Yes, we could.

But the remains wouldn't be worth it.

Yes, we unquestionably could take the world. no doubt. The thing that makes America what it is, is, we dont. Were the first nation in history that has the capability to do this, and yet, it goes against our foundation and our principles. I know I'll catch heat for this but is it really arrogance when its truth?

All it takes to compete with any military weapons program is a
bio weapons program with no conscience.

With the right bio weapons delivered from high orbit with slow
descent via several methods some things could be let lose that
would end all human life on earth permanently.

A former Russian scientist alluded to the existence of such a thing.

32 strains of small pox as a carrier for Ebola.

It was nicknamed "Ebolapox".

A russian scientist discussing it

Similar article discussed in the past as well

So the US does have a lot of weaponry, but at the end of the day
whoever has this ready to deliver in a myriad of methods will end us all.

Very good point. And this is probably the one thing that saves us all. We have the technology to wipe out mass populations easily. Luckily, in the words of Boba Fet, "He's no good to me dead".

WHO CARES!

The US can barely hold down cities in Iraq.. what makes you think they can dominate every single country?
Now if you're talking about nukes...diff story.

Yeah nukes, chem, bio weapons of the future.. the whole works

With the economy the way it is currently, i'd say no. Even if these underground bases do exist...

As for destroying the world with nuclear war and whatnot...sure...but why would we?

Yep.. Complete and total unholds barred devestation is what it would take, but again, I don't think we could *hold* the ground

One question OP

How did America go in the Vietnam war?

If you can answer this, you will realise that taking over a country is not as simple as having the best trained military and technology
