Hell, I've been waiting for China to "liberate" us for a while now. All they need is for Canada to agree to be neutral and they can just roll armor down from Alaska.edit on 22-8-2011 by Cuervo because: (no reason given)

If the US tried genocide on it's own people, the people would have to remove the Gov. from power.

Imagine a building is blown to shreds, something symbolic, like the world trade centers were. Now imagine, that to protect us from the "horrible forces" that did this, new security laws are enacted that give the government more control and power. With this new power they begin making all native Americans wear crescent symbols to symbolize their difference from the "true Americans". Soon their put into their own neighborhoods, well i guess the ones that aren't already. Anti indian propaganda is all over the MSM. Then, concentration camps, filled with Indians.
Remind you of anything? If America ever set out on a nationwide genocide, of any peoples, would any country step in to put a stop to it? if so who? What country or countries would protect the American citizens, Could protect us?
What nations do you believe would truly care about protecting freedom in other lands, and of those nations which ones alone or combined, would have the fighting power to be survive a march through america, to take down the camps?
If this happened would those in the camps have any sort of hope of rescue?

The EU on its own can put up a good defensive campaign, but offense is another story. I'm sure they would put forth a good effort and the UK would perform the best out of all of them, but the rest would fall short due to lack of training, experience, morale and offensive capabilty.
For a comparison:
1.4 million reserves
1.4 million active duty
120 million fit for service (remember this is an invasion, the EU force would have to face most of the population)
Main battle tanks: 9573 (over 2500 more tanks than the EU)
Infantry Fighting Vehicles/Armored Personnel Carriers: 26,563
Combat Aircraft: 3389 (Not including drones)
Strategic Bombers: 179
Aircraft Carriers (All Super Carriers): 11
Now if you got the Russians and the Chinese, namely added Russian armor, airpower and Chinese cannon fodder you could wear down US military capability.
If the assault is not overwhelming and sustained, the US would launch a counter offensive and deploy/produce advanced weaponry, e.g. drones, railguns, and directed energy weapons.
If the combined effort in the initial assault is not well organized, it could easily result in the Russian, Chinese, and Euro navies and air forces being almost wiped out.
One other major issue is sustainment, the Russians and Chinese would be unable to sustain long term combat operations in North America and the EU would struggle to, especially if Canada was occupied by US forces. They could find themselves in a situation where the US would play island hop across the Atlantic in a counter offensive until they reached Brussels. Best chance then would be to bog US forces down in Britain and negotiate for a ceasefire.
Any invasion of the US would be a huge gamble, especially if US anti-ballistic missile systems are effective and the invading force lacks an effective system. The US would nuke its way to an armistice.
