U.S.A could take over the world if they wanted to. Could they???
Could Russia even compete with the U.S.A??? Could all of Europe even compete with them?

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 spent the last hour and a half writing a post I was thinking I would be very proud of, I imagined the applause I would get from a mod, someone like semper fortis or someone with like minded experience and I hit the refresh button and re-read the op again and the title and I don't know what I was thinking or if I miss read it but now,, after reading that title I only have two words for you.
