Strongest state in the world: Poll: 7/7/2016 18:08:18


Major General Smedley Butler

Report
Today, there are two major states competing in several areas to influence and dominate, for political and economic benefits, and are on near equal footing. They are of course, the United States of America and the People's Republic of China. The job of the folk in this poll: To present arguments for or against the strength of a state, and to go against or for the arguments made by others. Or to just vote and faff off.

You may present arguments for other countries. F.E: Putin has abs, and looks cool, so it's obvious that Russia can challenge a country with a billion more folk than it, a direct land border and a better military.

That's not a paper tiger, it's expected of a country that doesn't regularly invade other places. And considering that it'd likely be the US starting a conflict on Chinese waters and soil, and not the other way around, it's better to have a large force that could hold against American attack, instead of a small but elite force trying to stop attacks from Afghanistan to Shanghai.

In a war between China and USA would probably end in a victory for the defender.

In general, today probably USA is stronger, maybe its almost even. Probably the gap now is much smaller then before Bush.

From the "Vice" interview: "Are the world's combined forces enough to conquer the United States? Here the answer is no, for it is much harder to project force. It requires logistical resources that the rest of the world simply does not have.
"
Sure! Like the Persia that was invencible! Oh wait! Better use the Macedonia! nah... Romans? Mongols? British? Germans? ...Anyway, USA is invencible!

Persia and Germany (the two empires that you listed that were taken out exclusively by war and not copious amounts of corruption and organizational decay over a long time plus Balkanization) didn't have two large oceans and the strongest fleet in the world.

One: Why would America land in China? One, it would most likely fail and result in huge casualties, two, they already have places to invade China from, most notably, Vietnam and Afghanistan.

Two: The casualties for the "coalition (America and it's protectorates) and China would be much higher.

Never said indestructible, I said that Germany and Persia lacked the geography that enables the US to be so defensible.

Sounds exactly like those brazilian supremacists' theories that we can't be invaded. "We have a dense forest and a trained elite group for forest operations, we will never lose a defensive war", lolz.

You can't predict the outcome of war. Generals and the climate are always there to make things unpredictable. Whoever plays smartest, wins, in case of an all-out China vs America deathmatch. America is likely to win, but that's not due to chinese weakness, but due to chinese bureaucracy.

All vs America is just flat out unfair for them. First off, when all of the world agrees on an enemy, nukes won't be held off, so it's gonna shower radiation; the USA can't compete with all nuclear powers in the world, aided by the fact they have more areas and population to nuke - if they do so in time.

And then there's the difference in manpower...

Nukes make all this pointless.

WW3 will never happen, because if it does, at least a billion people can kiss their asses goodbye, and cancer will go through the roof.

I don't think so m8. I never stated civilian cassualties and believe me, there are lots of people in china that would prefer an American occupation than their govt. Most likely places are Macau and Hong Kong. The reason the cassualties would be so low is China would explode due to being home to many Independence wanting cultures ''East Turkestan,Mongols in Inner Mongolia,Deep south where Vietnamese,Manchurians hell! Even some small pockets of Koreans and of course people who want a real
'Republic'.

EDIT : And i stated only KIA not MIA,WIA etc.

Switzerland:

1. Bank

2. Luxury chocolate industry

3. Impenetrable

4. Entire nation can hide underground

5. Taking number 4 into consideration, who's to say there aren't people living underground in Switzerland right now? There could be tens, maybe hundreds of millions of Swiss living in underground civilization.

6. Obviously they have the technology to dig, and dig well. They can dig underground across borders, leading their underground army, clinically bred for war, and pop out in all major European cities.

The US has the most carrier groups in the world by far, and, again, two giant oceans on either side. Unless believing that a country with a good navy and two giant oceans is hard to invade is supremacist, then you don't have a point.

The United States. Both Russia and China are ethnic nations which are inherently weaker than a civic nation like America. Nowadays even the KKK at least want all people of European descent to be equal and unite into one group which is a much broader group of people than a particular ethnicity such as that in Russia and China while in reality people largely can advance if they have good education regardless of ancestry. America will always have more talents than ethnic nations hence America rules.

You guys should be glad that America rules. When one state is at the top the world is stable. When multiple alliances are roughly equal there can be war. US, Russia, UK, China, India, France etc are sane enough so they will not directly fight each other (nuclear threat). Israel threatens to destroy the world if it is about to be destroyed (Samson Doctrine) but I doubt this will ever be carried out. Iran is more reasonable than we think they are, so is Saudi Arabia. The Islamic State is one of the few organizations that is very dangerous if it can capture a nuke. Ultimately people can do anything if it is for a religious reason. Watch out for people who do things as opposed to merely waiting for an apocalyptic event. This can be dangerous. It can go from people rushing to buy food before what a prophet claims to be a prophesized disaster to armed attacks by the Islamic State.

I don't see how China is an ethnic state when Chinese isn't an ethnicity. Maybe if China was called Han, then yes, you could call it a ethnic state.

It's mainly communist lying (instead of republican or racist lying) that keeps China together, not any united Han identity.

Anyway, China has over a billion folk, chances are, they have more smart folk just by sheer size.

^^China is a majority Han Chinese state just like Germany is a majority German state. China is kept together by a central government not anything else. US can absorb talented people from different nations including China who may even look different from each other while China can not even absorb talented people from Japan who look just like the Chinese, let alone Europeans, Indians and Africans.

Not to mention China doesn't exactly have a long list of people who like them.

I mean, Vietname, the Phillipines, South Korea, Japan.... most of their neighbors would probably help a US-lead invasion.

Not to suggest I think a war against China is a good idea. A war between two nuclear armed countries CANNOT end well.
