if i ever did invade the US, i would first get my secret agents to infiltrate the food supply and poison it...(like it isn't even poisoned right now). then send biological missles and bombs over major citys and food supply, rivers, crops, farms etc. then send airforce to takeout and weapons on the coast and land troops on their ground bases and deploy.

Basically AnteBellum, it's impossible, currently, to launch a conventional military invasion of the US. It's not a question so much of strategy or tactics, but of logistics.

An old military saying "Historians study strategy, Generals study logistics".

Now if you wanted to do it unconventionally or involve WMDs or covertly over a period of years; then that is something different.

A video game recently came out that had an interesting scenario. The game was called Homefront. The enemy irradiated the missisippi river and bombed the bridges to make it impassible and divide the country in half, after a massive EMP strike from space that wreaked havoc on infrastructure and communications (one mission shows a crashed airliner in a subburban town), then invaded the West Coast. The back story was very well thought out and the game took place in 2023 after the US economy collapses and a unified Korean republic (that also annexed many other asian nations including japan after the US military withdrew all support from the region due to the economic collapse at home). The game developers put so much research and thought into the story timeline that it sends chills down your spine, and the story was written by the guy behind Red Dawn.

First, I'd post a thread on ATS asking the same thing you're asking. Now what?


I also like Mr. Bits idea. Using Crack teams to storm the White House.

I think the headline is wrong also. Or maybe I'll start a new thread. Why would you invade the U.S.A ?

Knowing that a military force as strong as America's would be hard to amass....but even assuming I had one, I'd still fight in a somewhat guerrilla style. Its always worked best against the American Military in the past. I think what I would likely do is forgo trying to defeat America's Military,but instead I would hit populated areas, one at a time taking over one city after another. I would have my army take over city after city...the entire time keeping the base of operations in the most populated of areas....causing a situation where American Citizens would act as our own personal Human Shields...I might also set up command bases in power plants, and other such resources......I would plan on destroying these anyway, and if the American's bombed them they would just be doing our job for us. I think I would continue destroying resources like clean water, food supplies and power stations in American cities....using mainly ground troops, forcing the American's to use the same, keeping them from using their stealth planes and other such toys, which is their comfort zone. Basically I'd just keep choking the cities and crippling them, ignoring military targets.....eventually the American people would start to give in, once they were hungry enough......eventually this would make the military crack, and give up.

before i attacked, id plan a little more...consider how they might defend themselves and how they might counter attack..and put preventions in place before i started anything.

something most of you havnt mentioned.

Establish a network of Neocon Zionists who will.........
Insure successive governments and leaders who are willing to be dictated to by world banks and corporations,
Insure spending is out of control and National debt is increased at every opportunity,
Control media outlets so that real news items never reach the population.
Establish a Movie industry which will serve as secondary education to the masses.
Encourage the Financial sector to perform the biggest fraudulent transfer of wealth from the citizens in the history of the world.
Install US friendly and corrupt puppet dictators in third world countries.
Invade foreign nations rich in natural resources in the name of spreading freedom & democracy.
Surpress all cheap and free energy and ensure the population is addicted to expensive oil.
Encourage the Medical industry to provide expensive treatments over cheap cures.
Surpress all knowledge of natural health remedies and treatments.
Allow a syndicate of private banksters to set up the federal reserve bank to control national finances
Introduce tax on citizens labor to pay off interest on loans to Government from the private federal bank.

I think the USA has already been invaded by stealth and its destruction is well underway.

because its that easy?? you'd wait a month? lol you have enough EMPs to cover the entire US? before that month is over there would be a huge hole in the ground where you used to be.

everyone comment on this thread seems to be in the assumption that the enemy wouldnt fight back.

I mean It's already been raped and pillaged and strip mined. All that's left is a bunch of bloated, spaced out, unemployed, zombies, walk'in around bump'in into each other.

Why would you invade the U.S.A.?

First I'd pay my emigrants to go live&work there, like China does. Then I'd employ all kinds of propaganda tactics by buying out your media and create various political movements/parties. Then I'd buy out some of your politicians as well and especially congress. I'd eliminate your domestic production, control your currency and subvert your allies. Finally I'd just simply walk into your country.... done, no wars needed.

Wars are only there to eliminate enemies that resist your subversion and for ethnic cleansing, nothing else. I think a developed, multicultural country like US can easily get subverted with no resistance except maybe a couple paramilitary organisations which exist in US even now anyway. Also, what you guys think is socialism and communism in US is nothing like it at all, no one would change a political system when people are already perfectly brainwashed with corporatism. For example, Chinese government is perfectly aware that Chinese political system cannot be simply applied to US populace, if they would take over US they would keep your current system which is corporatism - why change something that works just fine? You'd get "conquered" without even knowing it.

Oh, worst case scenario is that US gets split up in the process and cease to exist, that would serve no one and would be just a product of sheer stupidity, malice and chauvinism. Something like that happened in Yugoslavia.

What similar force, the US spends more than the rest of the world on "defence", so we'll presume the rest of the world has "found out the big secret" and allied together to overthrow the US oppression and the aliens have banned nukes with their "powers".

Human waves from the south backed up by the huge fifth column of illegals, while India, Russia and China amass a 40, 000, 000 man army in Alaska and Canada, Europe takes on the role of command and control using German expertise to organise the supply chain. White Commonwealth special forces take on the role of sabotage and spreading sedition within the borders of the CUSA.

In the real world there is no way to attack the USA, its neighbors are weak and everyone else is too far away resulting in insurmountable problems with both supply and force movement, not to mention the ridiculous issues of bringing an army in good cohesion through Alaska and Canada.

The Homeland will never be attacked, rest easy patriots.

America IS under attack right now. Have a good look at how they do it!

I'd use a genetically modified pathogen first to target WWE fans and people who really believe Sarah Plain is a valid option for 2012. Then i would send forward my 100,000 highly skilled ninja assassins lead by General Benjamin Fulford.

wait a few years for the 50 year old fleet to get retired.

Aircraft carrier USS Enterprise is from 1961!

the ship's retirement for 2013, when she will have served for 51 consecutive years, the most of any U.S. aircraft carrier

If I had power comparable to the US military, I would do the following:

Ariel attack/destroy on any naval asset within 1 week sailing of the US.
Atomic attack on top 10 key military sites in the US

Atomic attack 1 mile of the cost of all major US cities, including Washington - perhaps in that waterway East of Balitomore/Washington etc (Don't know what it is called)

Call for immediate surrender on threat of escelating action. If no surrender, 20 mile long string of nukes, 1 every half mile, detonated in tikmed sequence allong the San Andreas Fault between San Fransisco and San Jose. Just in case this works! LOL

Call for surender.

If no surrender, start nuking major cities, by population count, largest to smallest. Leave 24 hours between each bomb inviting surrender. Continue untill A) The US surrenders, or B) I run out of nukes.

After I win, and the US surrenders, I will finish off any nukes I still have left just because I am a bastard, and mushroom clouds are pretty.

If I were in charge of planning a US invasion, there would be many factors to consider. One of the important ones being whether I had nuclear weapons or not. If so, I would NOT want to use them, because the US would not hesitate to retaliate, and mass destruction would nullify the whole point of going to war...unless of course you are an extremist, and would just as soon have your country leveled as long as you take as many Americans with you as possible, but as likely as this situation may be, I will not go there.

Another major factor is armament. Do I have a navy? An air force? It would be extremely, extremely difficult to position a force large enough for a (successful) US invasion without alerting the government and military. Given this fact, the best way, imo, to position troops for a US invasion would be to (slowly) move them from lower South America into Mexico. This would still be extremely difficult to do without alerting the US, and brings up the important factor of allies. Who is allied with whom? If Canada were an ally, this could be achieved from the North as well. Or both.

Of course, you would have to open more than one front, and with a navy major forces could be positioned a decent distance away from US waters, as to not raise immediate suspicion, and they could move closer to the coast once the initial invasion had begun, followed up by establishing a beach-head on the East coast.

The Pacific coast is a viable option, as there would not be as large of an electronic net as on the East coast, ie submarine detection systems, etc, but the US has a larger naval presence in the Pacific as opposed to the Atlantic regions. Again, allies would come into play.

Also, along with the initial North/South invasion, if I had a good sized air force, I would use jets to protect transport planes, and send a massive amount of them inland to drop paratroopers. I mean honestly, there are just too many variables that would change the strategic situation, and without knowing those variables, a decent plan could not be laid out.

Also, the likelihood of a land based invasion, while much more preferable to nuclear war, in my opinion just would not happen to the US. It is scary to think however, that one side would use nukes against the other, giving the other an excuse to retaliate with nukes themselves. This is why no one should have nukes, but that will never happen...Unless there is alien intervention, lol, and even then I am not so sure.

With a large enough force, and with a sizable navy/air force (China anyone?), a US invasion could actually be feasible, but the US would have allies across the globe, and I am positive that someone would opt for the nuclear option, and utter chaos would ensue.

Honestly, anyone's plan is as good as mine since the variables are unknown. I do believe that it is important to discuss things like this, maybe not for us though, since it gives you insight into where your weaknesses lie.

canada, push all the canadians south as human shields.

what? you want to take the USA and you think the canadians would be a problem?

blitz all the way to arkansas and southern cal and georgia.

all ya got left is texas if you control the gulf of mexico.

got a funnel into mexico where air and sea power will clean up the rest.

the canadians would be long gone, around south dakota,

new hampshire and big sur, tho.

hey, good luck!

I'd target American television. Without their daily 6 hour fix of mindless pablum, Americans would turn on each other like sharks in a feeding frenzy.

Canada would then just walk in, dump the bodies and stay warm thru the winter.
