It is threads like this that make me realise just how many deluded Americans there really are. I understand patriotism, and national pride these are
inherent in nearly everyone in every country, even the poorest village dweller in a shanty town somewhere will tell you his country is the greatest
and he would die to defend it, it is human nature.
It is true that the US military is the best equipped in the world and that gives it a very big advantage and makes invasion highly unlikely it is not
however impossible. American superiority against most forces comes from highly advanced communications and satellite technology, if those are taken
out first by Russia of China then the US becomes considerably weaker the vast majority of its defences are nullified, add to that, that any invading
force is unlikely to land directly, they would land in South America, most likely in Chile and then push forward the southern continent while
simultaneously landing other forces along the west coast and using airborne to cut off the defending armies supply routes. This would forge a 3
pronged attack and secure a beachhead in the south west of the country.
They would have a firm strong hold in the country and a supply route through Southern America. If they would then have enough strength to push through
the American heartlands and into Eastern USA would depend on which forces attacked and who if any would come in support of the US, if the alliance was
with Russia and China that would be very strong especially considering the could call up on supportive countries too, such as Iran, Pakistan (yes they
would turn on you in an instant) However I do believe the UK would support the US and as such call up the Commonwealth allies, giving you the likes of
the Aussies and the Canadians (who would help regardless of the UK's stance) It would be a tough call to say who would win though.
And although there would be some civil resistance, it would be no where near the amount many of you think it would, it is all well and good being
brave behind a keyboard, but think logically for a moment, if your house is surrounded by literally hundreds of highly trained troops with a tannoy
message saying give yourself up and surrender your weapons, you will not be harmed. How many are going to start firing knowing that that first shot
condemns everyone in that house with to death, would you sacrifice your wife? Your husband? Your Mother and father, your brothers and sisters, your
children, your nieces and nephews? Would you allow them all to die, or would you hand over your gun? The vast majority would hand over their weapons,
not because they are cowards but because they are human and have loved ones they care about and don't want to see them die, we are talking invasion,
this is not 20 or 30 guys coming into a town, we are talking about 1000's of troops on the street, you can't fight that with a Smith & Western
It is very unlikely, very very unlikely that the US would be invaded, however it is not impossible
