The cost on the other hand would be massive. The United States, would start out with precision nuclear weapons.

Neither are you if you think you would wipe them out without being wiped out yourself in the process.
You only think I guessed wrong! That's what's so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned! Ha ha! You fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders - The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line"! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha...
how will a country combat an invisible enemy such as a bio agent? A bio agent the aggressors already have a vaccine/immunity against?

Uh, have you met Russia or China? I don't anticipate that 'liberation' being a good thing. Everyone who starred should go take a vacation.
Total Armed Forces
Army 160,000 including about 40,000 conscripts (plus about 130,000 reserves)
Navy 24,000 including about 3,500 conscripts (plus about 4,000 reserves)
Air Force 50,000 including about 10,000 conscripts (plus about 12,000 reserves)
The Bundeswehr (the generic name for the German Armed Forces) is currently restructuring. During early 2010 conscription was reduced from 9 to 6 months and it is possible that there are longer term plans to abolish conscription entirely. We believe that under the current limitations imposed by the German constitution it is unlikely that the Armed Forces are capable of deploying more than about 10,000 personnel on overseas missions.
Army Strength: approximately 160,000 including about 40,000 conscripts (plus about 130,000 reserves). There are plans to reduce the strength of the German Army to around 132,000 within two or three years.
