Ok, I am not looking for the 'my country is bigger than yours' or 'we saved you in Europe' dribble that we normally get in threads such as these.

I want to have a real debate on reported statistics and facts not the 'We haz super duper Free Energy Weapons!'.

Here is a list of the major world strengths.

One one side we have the USA, Israel, UK, France, Germany, India, Australia, Italy, Canada, South Korea and Saudi Arabia. (The most likely countries to get involved in a war against Russia-China).

On the other we have Russia, China, Iran, Pakistan, Iraq, North Korea, Venezuela and Syria.

I will do a nation by nation overview and then West/East total.



USA:
Air Force: 18,000
Naval (Including logistical and transport): 2,300
Land Weapons: 56,000
Manpower (Active and Reserve): 1,500,000 A, 1,400,000 R = 2,900,000

Israel:

UK:

Men: 12,965,000



Russia:

China:
Air: 5,200
Naval: 1000
Land: 47,000
Men: 2,285,000 A, 800,000 R. = 3,085,000

Iran:
Air: 1,000

Land: 2,000
Men: 150,000 A, 780,000 R = 930,000



TOTAL:
Air: 14,100
Naval: 2,286
Land: 214,000
Men: 18,865,000.



So, as you can see the West has an overwhelming advantage in Air and Naval Firepower but that advantage is then whittled away in Land based weapons and then overwhelmed in Manpower.


With the above statistics, who would you back to win if war was declared tomorrow?
Keep in mind most of these nations have nuclear weapons and missiles capable of delivery so don't go 'Grr we'd just nuke the lot of them' because, lets face it, no country is retarded enough to actually use those weapons.

He who controls the air controls the war. And with a 2 to 1 advantage in that department I'll go with the west on this one.
