Do you think that europe would win a war over america?
well according to the statistics america has a military power od 2.4 million soldiers whereas europe has 11.8 million considering america has 1/3 over seas whereas europe has only 1/16th if we went to war tommorrow would us europeans win, britian has one of the best armies in the world and france has one of the highest number of miltary jets, russia have a huge amount of nuclear wepons as does most of europe, and tanks, britian has a navy that almost equals the US in number but is far more highly trained due to thier pride in thier navy, tommorrow who would win can i have some american points of view
With all the nukes flying both ways, nobody would win. In fact, seriously, the entire planet would lose any such war.
But in a non-nuclear war, I think the US has some serious technological advantages. We spend far more money on having the upper hand than in just sheer quantity of men/vehicles, which by far tips the scales in favor of killing faster, first. 1 technologically superior jet or squad of infantry can kill 10x it’s own weight in lesser forces.
Quote from Wikipedia:
The United States is considered to have the most powerful military in the world, partly because of the size of its defense budget; American defense expenditures in 2005 were estimated to be greater than the next 14 largest national military budgets combined, even though the U.S. military budget is only about 4% of the country’s gross domestic product. The U.S. military maintains over 700 bases and facilities. It also has bases on every continent except Antarctica.
So, spending more than the next 14 nations combined is clearly just to have the upper hand, not caring at all about quantity or size of force. Such things are trivial in modern, strategic war, where the first to fire wins.
