What would the world be like if America and her military ceased to exist at this moment?

Latin America:
-coup/civil war in places like El Salvador, Honduras, Panama as regimes lose their military backing.
-Venezuela invade Curacao immediately, followed by Aruba. Kingdom of the Netherlands would be unable to take them back.
-Cuba invade puerto rico, grenada, Sint Maartin etc.
-Ecuador and Peru resume their war
-Argentina is forced by popular sentiment to invade the "Malvinas" (Falklands) over the objections of its own leadership.



Latin America is more united than you think (Mercosur, Unasur). Civil war is unlikely and coups...well..except Cuba, there are no dictators.

Venezuela has no reason to invade those islands.

Cuba invading PR?!
Research why Cuba and PR have the same flags reversed.

War between Peru and Ecuador is resolved.

You have a point with Argentina.


Basically what you would see if the US went away is, many players would try to expand their influence, but it would be quite some time before any player replaces the US in military power. China and Russia would face opposition if they tried to take over outright and would probably fight themselves in the process.

I bet the smaller neutral coutries that don't have decent defenses would try to build a space colony real fast!
Maybe that is the ticket to expanding our space exploraton and learning to warp drive through the universe. Then maybe the decent people that aren't savages could find a nice decent planet to inhabit. Then the cycle can repeat itself.
Mankind, the blight of the universe, can never escape itself.

We were problaby left here on purpose by aliens in the first place.
Ah look, a nice green rest stop... Oh we forgot something at the last stop, we will be right back.

How much better will you be without our war mongering crazy military industrial complex.Show us your vision genuises. Don't slam me or the US about what has already happened.Show me the future after.


There would be no more guantanamo bay on occupied Cuban soil, and no crippling sanctions against a peaceful nation such as Cuba. There would be no Apartheid Palestine, and there would be no more occupied Japan, occupied Afghanistan, occupied South Korea... Bush will be in prison, or executed, Obama on his right side, Hillary and her husband on the left side, other figures on top commanding torture and execution of innocent Americans and non-Americans would be in prison for life.... The list goes on

But



Other world powers such as China, Russia, India, Europe.. would probably replace America as the next arrogant empire, but that doesn't mean the world will stop fighting, resisting and stay silent...

Do you really think it could be worse than it is? Over the years, the US has used every battlefield available to subjugate the world - direct overt military actions, direct military action by proxy, covert action, political action, corporate action, world bank and IMF fraud, drug trafficking, mainstream media propaganda and more. Much more. Now they are bringing home the oppression to us -- big time.

If they disappeared tomorrow, their behaviors would shift to other players to some degree, but nobody could be as freakin' organized as the criminals running our country. The world would be a better place.

The world will have the threat of ww3 lifted if its shoulders. No country will be held to ransom over the us millitary might. USA would not have the power to impose its laws world wide, giving rise to a growth in culture. Many more...
Can't think of a bad scenario for this, sorry.
Us army is not only big and bad, it does as its told. It goes on ventures just like the knights Templar. Not looking for religiouse artefacts and knowledge, but resources. At the same time installing a pollitical and banking sytem to pillage the people. The power as slide across the earth for thousands of years, from Egypt to Rome to England to America, why would it stop there? China is next on the map.

Briton does not rule the world, nor America. It's the banks that rule, they pull the strings. They paid to set up this whole sytem they thought would protect them, education, armys, police. With our hard earned money. Polotics is a disstraction. apocalypse means revalation, what was hidden will be seen. Exactly what's happening now, we are all learning this. Where these family's come from it matters not. They are cowards and hide behind the people of whatever country they are based in at the time.

That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Yes.. those Canadians are just itching to get the land we took from them so long ago...

While they may not be headed by outright dictators, I think that some states would certainly change leadership if the ruling party no longer had the jobs produced by having an american base, support or infrastructure. Panama certainly would change. Haiti and Guatemala are two other states that would be destabilized without a UN/US presence.



Venezuela has no reason to invade those islands.


Venezuelan regimes since WWII have claimed that Aruba rightfully belongs to Venezuela, because it is geologically part of South America, and has billions of cubic feet of offshore natural gas.

2009 Washington Post Article



Cuba invading PR?!

You're right that its too far fetched; although Cuba would begin casting around for natural resources, and wouldn't mind a lop-sided relationship with a smaller, less populous island to get them. Particularly if oil was involved.



Basically what you would see if the US went away is, many players would try to expand their influence, but it would be quite some time before any player replaces the US in military power. China and Russia would face opposition if they tried to take over outright and would probably fight themselves in the process.


As long as Russia and China left each other alone, they could both annex a series of smaller states in their respective neighborhoods without real opposition. Vietnam, Taiwan, Nepal, etc for China; Russia could annex the Former Soviet states, plus a few stragglers that never joined any treaty org after the collapse of Warsaw pact.
The interesting part would begin after that initial annexation phase, which the Giants would have to take on much tougher targets; Poland would not submit easily to Russia, Nor Korea to China. But the rewards would definitely be worth the risk in a post american power vacuum.

It would be a violent mess, that's for sure.

It's not that difficult to imagine, we were doing OK without you, progressing at a steady rate.

The Royal Family runs the world. With all the research I have done, its the only thing that makes sense. I have heard countless times that the Royal Family believes they are direct blood line of Jesus Christ. But all that aside, I believe that Most of the "Secret Organizations" really in turn answer to, or report to the royal family. The US Gov has been doing so much work here on US soil for the Royal Family. Which is why I believe the last 5 or 6 of our presidents have been knighted by the queen, "For being good stewards to the Royal Family".

I'd agree they are all in on it together, bissiness partners if you like. who ever it is, it's them, not the people of the country they hide behind. I'm from uk and I tell ya, she don't look after us! Kind of like a parasite/freakshow/tourist attraction, thingy.

Everyone who was ever wronged by America would destroy each other as they all try to take her over at once...

And then we'll be left all alone. What a fitting fate.

It would be, considering every other country is just as war-prone as we are. With our military gone, only one thing changes: we would then be a sitting duck, ripe for picking off and converting into fresh resources and revenue for any country whose businesses take a shine to our wealth, shifting the balance of power and carving a new destiny (or doom) for the world.

Fancy being Chinese, anyone? Or maybe Russian?

Biggest war dog gone, the pack would chill down some and militias could ward of invaders, as presume the bankers were taking out with the military..so no one would have funds to fight or reason to take over the territory, or people...

You don't have a clear picture of the true nature of Homo Sapiens, do you? Every nation has become convinced that expansion is necessary for survival. For now, some of them are floating idly, waiting for technology to catch up. Some of them are literally stuck in sandtraps and have accepted that they will not progress farther until they overcome their environment.

But China and Russia? They are patriotic. If they see a nation that will not fight, they will continually press for more revenue. They will push for more agreements. And eventually...they will milk us dry. If they do not conquer us, they will bleed us.
