U.S can... It's been proven over and over.


and the only reason they "can" is because the US has a giant credit card the size of ohhhh say $14.3 trillion dollars at the moment. When they stop printing fake money, the troops won't be going anywhere and will eat earthworm to survive.

LMAO. Whoever made that video put the Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2 music into it.

Anyone else notice they march like Nazi's? I was half expecting them to salute Seig Heil style.

This is all completely true... until the first EMP, then the second, and suddenly 2/3 of the Earth is thrown back to the stone age! Then 1000 against 200 is all you have, and a horseback army is invaluable (of which China has the largest, btw). Something to think about.

Now no matter what army they have, the fact of the matter remains, China Relies on us for purchasing of their goods. Without us, they wouldn't have the money to buy those weapons and armies.


You have it all backwards, The US relies on China to manufacture their goods... US IS the customer.. Manufacturer are too greedy to pay a reasonable fee to have common items manufactured at "home". walk around your house... most items say "MADE in China", not "PURCHASED or SOLD to China"

The goods are manufactured there, it makes them the "store". They are self sufficient.

China is only spending 2.2% of its GPD on it's military at the moment, that is putting hundreds of thousands of soldiers through training, on a wage and the upkeep and purchase of military hardware. Bear in mind China has the largest economy in the world it will not be a massive dent in their finances should they deploy oversea's.

Does anyone know why some armies choose to march and some others choose a funny walk? Is there a reason for goose-stepping or any of the other strange movements they make? The North Korean one looked more like dancing.

Ya they can March great, but have yet to see any Real combat, and even there leaders havnt seen real combat, If you ask me, they make great parade marches, but thats about all they have shown the world so far. Passing around a live grenade, really doesnt teach a military person anything, except that he could blow himself up, like a child playing with a gun, Idiots

It's all about show, the marching and military show, is always just for show.

They walked like that in the battlefield, and snipers would be timing that goosestep and pop goes the weasel, I mean goose.

Quoted from wikipedia:


By the mid-19th century, firearms with longer range and greater striking power made the practice of marching forward in precise formation irrelevant. Armies no longer advanced in neat lines to meet the enemy. However, armed forces continued to drill recruits in marching techniques that now had only a ceremonial and psychological function. This was true in Prussia and the later German Empire, where the goose step became emblematic of military discipline and efficiency.

IMO, the "goose-stepping" is far more strenuous than your average march; therefore, requires far more dedication to achieve. It also makes a bit of a show since they extend their legs and move their arms in a swift fashion. It is difficult to orchestrate at best but the result gives the appearance of a well oiled machine.

Military strength is irrelevant when the opponents do have a nuclear arsenal.

As soon as one side does lose the conventional conflict, the nuclear card will be pulled out of the sleeve, and then help us god.

I fail to see how spending so much time choreographing the goosewalk translates to some bad@ss fighting force?

I understand that, but let's take your store concept.

The store can't even exist without a customer base, the US is the largest by far, with the Chinese ever approaching to their own big consumer, learning from us that is. We are the mold in which china relies on to cast it's foundation of it's own new civilization. They are using us, like we use the cows n crops, but still we couldn't be without those same crops and cows. Interesting dynamics economics takes, even moreso the amount of Chinese items sold to US, that they rely on so heavily to keep things like clockwork.

But you still do not have a way to get those 1000 vs 200 - plus all of the horses - to American shores. And even if you could get those troops to our shores, the citizens are well armed:

They may not have an successful invasion but they could invade to cause damage to the ecosystem, and to just kill some citizens in the process. Either way, any advanced country in todays age would be very hard to conquer but if anyone has a shot it would be China, Russia and the US.

you should see the Saudi's march some time. good giggles and grins material.

There are a lot of uninformed people which do not see N.Korean or Chinese Military a threat.
If N. Korea could feed their Army, that war would have been fought already.
Scoffers Beware. That is all I have to say about the Chinese Military. If its a hot war, they have the beans and the bullets.

Yeah, Scoffers Beware!!!

In 1995 I had a conversation with an E-9 about China. He said "they don't have a Navy"

They have a Navy Now.

Yeah, Scoffers Beware!!!

That is becoming a largely used cliche now. I dont think it holds the weight it used to. There are a lot of slugs in America. There are some that would embrace the change. Can you blame them. People lack courage now not being under fire, things are not what they used to be.

First thing after meeting resistance the Chinese would break out the kettle and feed the masses. Set up factories and put people to work.

Scoffers Beware!!!

America is setup right now for complete failure of Policy and Idealism.

Scoffers Beware!!!
