also i doubt u own the land considering you only specialise in tanks.
also you only own the skies because russia ran outa money.
you dont own the seas you think you do but you dont.
your marvalous sub nets dont work well against the same or better tech.

First many people consider it inapropriate to call native Americans indians. Its politically uncorrect. And we didn't buy that much land from them. For the most part we just massacered all the inhabitants. Thats not something to be proud of but sadly thats how we got most of our land. Were not to bad on the ground but I admit were definatly not the best. Our air force is pretty good. We were about even with the Russians so I would call it a tie. As far as subs go the Russian subs were a bit better. But the rest of the USN is the best in the world. The RN might have better training but overall were very formidible in the seas.

Hawks china is welcomed to sell to those countries but they wont risk getting the US angry cuz we make up 30% of its economy and they wont risk any more treaties pushed by the US that would restrict countries from buying and selling to china

@west point

Here we go again. Yes, China's economy is dependent on the US, but so is the US's economy dependent on ours. We are the 2nd largest US creditor in the World and our market is virtually propping up many US companies (not all, but quite a few). Last Thursday's Wall Street JOurnal has an article on it: GM now sells more Buicks in China than it does in the US year to date. This is an irriversible trend and we will become more and more inter-dependent so you should stop saying "oh we will just cut off trading with them" because if that happens, we both will suffer. Maybe China suffers a little more than the US does, but US will definitely suffer too.

Ciao

Duh! of course GM is going to sell more cars in china than in the US why? cuz china has 1.5 billion people the US has 270 million duh


Also china cant become a strong till it closes the sweatshops and feeds its people and controls its birth rates more than half of Chinas people are poor pheasants.

Thats why I fail to see why people are so worked up about the US selling arms to the Taiwanese. They should be able to defend themselves and thier way of life.

I agree with you 100%.

It is a basic human right to defend yourself regaurdless of your political veiws. If the Tiwianese want to be part of China so be it, let them reunite. If they dont let them have the means to protect them selves.

CHINA , in a land war it could wipe the floor with you because of thier numbers.
you build the best jets huh? so thats why u stole our supersonic jet, the german jet program, the british airbus idea which looks remarkably like a boing 747. should i carry on? also russia has decent tech just no money give them money and they'd match you in tech.
also NO one owns the seas, period. your lovely subs frankly suck at turning. you may have good boats but your torps are crap compared to our spearfish one. also russia has a decent navy. they could match IF they money.

What supersonic jet are you refering to? What british airbus idea? Please supply the links for these acusations. In as far as the Russians go, when thier military had all the money they wanted, they lagged waaay behind in technology and spyed for what they needed. Int he 80's, besides Project RYAN, the KGB's main focus in the US was industrial spying.

also NO one owns the seas, period. your lovely subs frankly suck at turning. you may have good boats but your torps are crap compared to our spearfish one. also russia has a decent navy. they could match IF they money.

Only so many spearfish to go around besides we are not going to war with you anytime soon eh? Besides there is more to subs than having a few torps that have speed. The spearfish is an awesum torp, topping out at 80 knots, but the Mr48 ADCAP has newer electroics, and greater range. You can be as fast as all get out, but if you cant reach your target game set match. Can't comment on the manuverability issue. The Russian Navy is in such a state of disrepair that the flagship Peter the Great had to be docked. An admiral said the reacor could go at any minute. So much for the Russian Navy

Hmm but Taiwan is an ally is it not? During the cold war, the Warsaw Pact viewed England as the enemy, we still sold weapons to you as I recall.

Going back, Germany viewed England as a enemy during WWII, still sent alot of weapons before we entered the war.

Devil the Chinese cant take the US in an open battle field in an all out war china has 2.5 million people in their army the US has 2.0 million .5 million is nothing the US has better tanks Better helicopter Far better jets better support aircraft better technology we have better organization please china would not stand a chance against the juggernaut there are so many things that we have that they don't it would take too long for me to list them.

Also devil why are you talking about the 1945-1950 im talking about now we build the best jets now and we have air superiority.

Also the Russians had a good airfare and navy during the cold war but without money now their navy is rusting away in dock their navy is so bad even Britain could beat them.

u idiot i said ground not air THERES A BIG DIFFRENCE!!!

what u trying to say that britain isnt a good military force?

im talking about jet wise you have stopped us building better jets because u dont want anyone to steal your glorios little spot up there with the big boys.
you beat them in tech thats all, they know the terrain and what to do. also their not as disorganised as you see them.

you have air superiority ? big deal ! they have lots of sams! you couldnt take them with your forces now. try when the raptor has actually replaced ur f-15's not before it.

so your saying that 5 million people armed with RPG's is nothing huh? or snipers? a sniper can stop an advance for several hours. also dont doubt the chinese force you also think your going to send EVERY SINGLE soldier in the US army over to china? no try more like 1 million at most.
kinda stupid this huh your only ally is defending your enemy.

Devil but ground battles include more than just tanks and humvees and battle field missiles you know that jets helicopters drones UAV's would be used. Also devil those sam sites they wont be there for long when
B-2's start dropping PGMs and im talking about a battle front not the after war invasion of china the US has no intentions to invade china im just saying if Chinas army invades Taiwan the US would mop the floor with china. Also devil im not trying to say that Britain's military is bad im just saying that even a navy the size of Britain could beat china in the water. There is a difference between a bad military and a small military.
