i have posted this link on a couple of different threads.
they take all the data and compare the armed forces of the world.
they exclude nuclear capability.
Global Fire Power. Com Strength In Numbers
the top three in order.
click each country's flag, and it gives you a break down of that country's armed forces.
if you look under the main header, you will see a compare button.
you can see the two country's side by side.
the op stated that the U.S. would have to bomb them to kingdom come, yes they would but with out the need for nukes. that's what the U.S does. rule
this sites shows that the U.S. has over 18,000 aircraft, now granted some are support aircraft if you were to check you would see that the majority of
them are combat.
also look at every major category, the U.S. has china beat in just about every one. and if they were to break it down even further, i think it safe to
say in the ones they don't The U.S.'s equipment is far more advanced than china's.
it would be kinda like the the native amercains going up against the U.S. cavalry with bow and arrows and the cavalry had rifles. who do you think is
yea sure they got more manpower, but in the end they would be standing there with sticks.
the U.S. main fighting tactic is to reach out and touch someone, then come in and mop up.
the U.S. has changed it's view sense vietnam. better to blow them back to the stone age first, then come in with ground forces
