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?

I rarely post on ATS, these days I just read. I cannot pass up this chance though - and not because the discussion started by the OP stirs me.
I'll answer on the topic quickly, so that I can proceed to what really caught my attention here.
Someone on the first page of this thread pointed out quite rightly that the US could achieve such a feat theoretically, but whatever it is that the US
would be taking over afterward - it wouldn't be the "world" as we know it. It also would do no harm to one's awareness to notice that global conquest
or global destruction (whichever floats your boat) is not out of limits to a number of nations around the world.
What really caught my attention in this thread is the tone of the original post. Flame suit - check!
I could not have asked for a better example of the average American's way of thinking on this subject. Be honest with yourself. Unrivaled funds,
secret underground bases, super duper technology generations ahead of it's time.
The above observation is relevant to the topic. How?
A Russian friend of mine once told me a joke about the times of the cold war:
In an effort to ease the tension between the two sides, the US generals invited the Soviet generals over for a trip around
America. While touring the Grand Canyon, one of the Soviet generals corrected their guide on the characteristics of the land mark (depth, rocks etc.).
Surprised, the guide complemented the Soviet general on how much he knew about the US. The general replied "I really know little of America. But this
Grand Canyon, as you call it, is well know to us as site 17.456.XR (whatever) and if we were to drop a small nuclear bomb between the tectonic plates
here, it would cause the entire southern US to collapse in earthquakes."
I am using this joke to point out two things ONLY:
1. The contrast between how Russians and Americans think. This is what caught my attention to begin with - I find the contrasts to be really
2. Whatever "unimaginable weapons" Maddogkull is imagining, I bet the real answer is far simpler and more practical.
Lets not argue about facts and stats, as it is only a joke. Yet this joke gets you thinking. The world is technologically advanced enough to to blow
itself up a million times over with the resources at hand. That is simple reality.
