Checking historical records we'll find no World Empire was ever invaded.
Roman Empire was not invaded, nor Spanish Imperio was. Their borders were breached sometimes, but were never invaded or taken over by other nations or kingdoms.
They were dismantled from the inside by several short-term policies.
But, if I had to invade the USA (which is not the case, I'd rather live peacefully there) I'd do it... Err... From Space. A ground/sea battle would be absurd.

Invading the USA would be a terrible idea. We all have access to guns. Knowing Americans, we would defend our neighborhoods to the death. I know I would.

Just keep the right politicians and judges noses powdered. Then simply walk in across the border whenever I want.
People make it sound like invading this country is actually hard or something.

I'd elect a president with poor credentials, fill the house and senate with people that would spend the country into a giant hole. I would enact politically corect nonsense and create impossible laws that would supress the population. Finally, I would fill the airwaves with non-sensical television and create partisan "news" agencies.
Once all that was in place, it'd be a simple thing to have a foreign power that the leaders have leveraged our entire country against, just walk in.
But that'll never happen.

Like someone asked before me.
Why would you want to attack USA? What would you gain by conquering it? It would be one of the last places on earth I would conquer.
Another thing is - you can't really conquer it. The population is to great and diverse. No point in subduing them. And taking over the power - who would want to handle all the problems such a nation has? plus there is no territorial advantage once you have it. It stands alone, deals with itself, its a world by itself.
So its either:
1. Nuke the whole thing
2. Leave it alone
