USA BEST POWER?
United States [average_joe] 
is USA the most powerful country to ever exist? i mean we can rape every country we want and no one would dare to intervene (like we did to japan and that was more than 60 years ago), if we wanted we could've nuked iran or even russia. and even if someone tries to attack us there is no chance, and ofc he will be terminated afterward. is there in any point of time a country that was this dominant? also do you guys fear that someday you wake up seeing your country getting shat on by our military or not? discuss

not too sure what you just said or what your point is, but the US spends more on defense than the next 7 countries... COMBINED... and we've done so for quite a long ass time now.... what's even crazier is that the $649 billion that we spent last year is STILL only 3.2% of our GDP. your precious Russia? $61.4 or 3.9% of their GDP.... i'm sorry, but your precious Russia is literally an insect compared to the military might of the US. largest air force in the world? The US, ofc second largest air force in the world? lmao the US Navy

Not until 1995 did Vietnam release its official estimate of war dead: as many as 2 million civilians on both sides and some 1.1 million North Vietnamese and Viet Cong fighters. The U.S. military has estimated that between 200,000 and 250,000 South Vietnamese soldiers died in the war. Seems like pretty good numbers. America was not trying to take over the country. Guess they just went for some fun.

2019-10-04 17:00
That's true, but most people in the US have enough money to life a high quality life. If you want to know more, the World Happiness Report and Human Development Index are both good resources. They measure a lot of factors contributing to overall happiness and quality of life respectively, and in both the US is ranked respectably high.
2019-10-03 20:00
"most people in the US have enough money to life a high quality life" That's why the vast majority of people avoid calling an ambulance when they get hurt otherwise they'd go broke right? LUL joke country, USA is literally Israel's money laundering puppets

We’re one of the only countries to have true freedom of speech, one of the only countries that you can come with nothing and make a living, if the US is so bad why does everyone want to immigrate here?
2019-10-04 16:13
Funny, USA is so "FREE" that it doesn't even appear in the top 15 countries for personal/economical freedom. You talk like americans do not immigrate and every immigrant in the world only goes to USA.
2019-10-04 16:17
Sorry. Sometimes I forget I’m talking to people whose first language isn’t English, when I say everyone it’s an exaggeration, I know and you know not “everybody” wants to move here it was just to help get my point across. The US is ranked #17 in the freedom index. So what it doesn’t appear in the top 15? It’s still one of the only countries with true freedom of speech and the ability to come with nothing and make a real life and that’s why I believe it’s the greatest country
2019-10-04 16:39
Of course USA is a great country to start business but other countries are far better off in that aspect, sorry. As several other countries have more freedom than you then I don't think you really have something special in that aspect as well. Stop being delusional. I know that was an exaggeration but people think that americans won't immigrate somewhere else for being "the greatest country". The father of my ex is an american immigrant. Sorry but there are very good points for USA not really being the best country ever. BUT, it has also very good point for it being a great country. You can have the biggest economy but other countries are faaar more stable and better off than you. Like Norway for example has the best quality of live and the highest standards of living in the world. I don't blame you tho, making a country has huge and populous as USA great country is a hell of a task.
2019-10-04 16:48
I’m glad we can somewhat agree, our economy certainly could be more stable and I’m not denying that people leave the US as well, I’m just proud of my country tbh, but there are definitely things we could improve on.
2019-10-04 16:53

2019-10-07 16:16
Well I LIVE in the most crime filled city in Norway.
2019-10-08 07:48
Okay? That doesn’t mean anything when you compare the populations of our countries
2019-10-08 12:17
Population? I lived in Kowloon, Hong Kong with a density of 43,033/km2 while LA has merely 3,124/km2 and it was still better by far.

2019-10-07 09:42
I dont like U.S nor U.S Americans , but you're wrong here. U.S has always helped S.A fight the soviet influence and up until the early 2000's they took millions of 100% unskilled with low academia level Latin American immigrants legally , that's not even concievable in your leftists ass countries in EU.
2019-10-03 20:03
USA backed up coups in south america that inplanted very brutal dictatorships with insane human rights abuses. Those were some very dark times. Even children as young as 11 years old were kidnapped and brutally tortured by the secret police in their basements. I have no sympathy for a country that backed shit like this up.
2019-10-03 20:08
Is that what they teach in public schools in Scandinavia??? im Argentinian and they barelly ever talk about the montoneros here , i can't imagine it being any better in europe. In case you didn't know , all of those coups happened because at that time we had revolutionary guerrillas in south america , Argentina and Peru being the most extreme cases in which the guerrillas killed many more innocent civilians than Dictatorships killed guerrillas. They were communists armed groups , armed by the soviet states of the time and Cuba , some even trained by them , we didn't have gun rights and the police was massively outclassed by them , and since all president were leftists back them they never authorized the army to intervene , so inocent civilians were getting killed left right and center , this is all in the hopes that the government would submit to the communist revolution like it had happened in Eastern Europe , spoiler alert , it didnt thank god it didnt for 99% of South America. You can learn more about the Argentina one here twitter.com/VickyVillarruel She's an expert investigator on civil casualties during the ERP times , you have absolute 0 clue of what S.A went through , Of course U.S would back the coups , unlike you and the rest of Europe , they wanted to see us develop.
2019-10-03 21:14
I heard it from brazil, and from the own children that got kidnapped and tortured, traumatized for life. Does fighting communism justify torturing innocent children that had nothing to do with guerrillas or communism? Do you really think that is an excuse to do such thing? "We are fighting communist revolution in our continent, better torture children. It sure will stop it all!" Go on dude. I will ask: how does torturing children save a country from communism or revolution?
2019-10-07 01:07
So you heard from Brasil what the ERP's and Videla did in Argentina??? and Pinchet did in Chile???? Quit wasting my time you fucking moron , i'll tell you one thing though , if you lived here during those eras you 100% would've been a victim of the communist guerillas , such an absolute fucking moronic leftist statist 100000% snowflake like you would've been like fresh meat to them , im glad it didn't happen , but im annoyed that you have 0 clue.
2019-10-07 01:12
You are just dodging my question you pile of donkey shit. You seem to not be able to recognise that it is wrong and is just calling me names instead of answering to just 1 simple question. Typical SA brain. I am not leftist nor right wing, quit assuming shit about people you don't know you dipshit. I didn't know that someone against torturing children is classified as a "absolute moronic leftist statist snowflake". How does kidnapping and torturing children stop communism? Is it that hard to answer 1 question? Now be a good boy and say it is all propaganda. Don't forget the infamous Ustra and others that loved torturing and raping pregnant women. Now answer my fucking question you fucking braindead abortion leftover. If you were in the blink of a communistic revolution now would YOU kidnap and torture little children that have nothing to do with anything instead of killing the communistic people for the sake of humanity? Answer it you dumbfuck and stop giving excuses and calling names.
2019-10-07 01:22
Uhhh what?!??! Videla and Pinochet did not kidnap and torture children , they did kidnap and torture innocent civilians , all of legal age , none underaged , dont know who you talked to but the ones killing kids were the guerrillas , in fact if you check the twitter i sent you , you will find that they blew up multiple normal public transport buses with kids and even babies in it , in fact most municipalities in the cities where this happened built some sort of monument to pay homage to the victims , except for the really leftist municipalities , the federal government hasnt done shit but forgiving the guerrillas who commited these atrocities , the Videla dictatorship killed 20K people , 90% of which were NOT innocent , they were guerrillas , the guerrillas killed over 22700 people , all of which were civilians and policemen during democracy. Is it okay to kidnap and torture anyone? Of course not , im anti-death penalty even , i would've give the guerrillas the due trial and then make them abide their sentence , but guess what , i wasn't the president and i wasn't even alive back then , all i can do now is to just tell you the story how it really is because you've been clearly lied to and you're talking nonsense out of your ass. Haven't said anything about Brasil , im still learning about it , you're probably full of shit though but im not gonna discuss about the several Brasileiro Golps that theres been. The facts are that the guerrillas in Peru, Chile and Argentina were by far BY FAR more destructive , evil and anti human than any of the dictatorships that they themselves provoked afterwards. ps: your shit talk is cringy as fuck , make it sharper or dont play the game because you're embarassing yourself , wtf "donkey pile of shit" dude.... you're supposed to make me bat an eye at least , not to make me feel like you're cute , adorable , beautiful little snowflake bubble.
2019-10-07 01:32
You started it. I was just being honest and trying to be polite but you had to come here and call me names. I tried to have a civilized conversation like an adult but you seem to be far beyond immature to have any discussion like a responsible, respectable person. Look at how yourself act before trying to talk shit to me you keyboard warrior truth-holder wannabe. Keep acting like that and you will call names on the wrong person someday and will see what happens.

Of course SA got rid of the threat, good, but wrong things were done. If you are against what happened to mere civilians (your own words) you are just agreeing with me. I personally met south american people that claimed their old relatives were arrested and tortured back then. You seem to think that these government actions against innocents are somehow justifiable because guerrillas did the same as well... Go talk to the own people that were traumatized for life. Go show your research to them. BTW I support Bolsonaro in several aspects, which is one of the most known right wing figures of today's times so quit with your shit. Edgy kids nowadays...
2019-10-07 01:55
Im not triggered at all what the hell??? i wanna pad you on the head and tell you "have fun baby". Of course im against any government anywhere in the world using force against innocent civilians , and of course that includes my own country as well. I dont justify any of the governments actions because im a far right Libertarian ANTI BIG GOVERNMENT , anti taxation , anti regulation. If i had a terrorist problem in a libertarian model like the one we had in our golden age , it would be solved within a couple of months mainly by the people , because they'd have gun rights and kill the shit out of those terrorist in legitimate self defense. What i have a problem with which is what bothers you , is that you are portraying the dictatorships as this event where people high up military personel just woke up one day and said "well im gonna overthrow the president in the name of anti communism" and then proceded to mostly kill innocent civilians , which is just retarded , anti histsoric and anti truth. The tensions was rampant and people were in massive terror before the dictatorships in Chile Arg and Peru , the guerrillas were really well funded and organized so they made sure that the same guerrilla made strikes in every province of each country, why the fuck do you think that all of these dictatorships had over 90% of approval rate during the first 3 years moron? Of course there is innocents who got injustice done to them , what the fuck do you mean "go show them your research" ???? are you retarded???? are you fakeflagging? where you from??
2019-10-07 02:05
Show them your research and what you think of it to see if it will make them feel any better about what happened. You make it seem it's what you want and doing it would somehow make anything better. It's just what you make it seem like. One thing doesn't justify the other. Of course I would not like my country to be like fucking Cuba or something but it does not in any way justify some measures taken by the governments. I saw several posters of gun deals from small shops from that time where it was normal to buy guns and have them at home for protection, which does not really happen in today's SA thanks to the left and their anti-gun policies rendering citizens unable to defend themselves from crime. Once and for all: my point is that the government should have dealt with the threat directly instead of kidnapping, torturing and killing civilians over something they had no relation with, and taking very harsh measures against the conventional society like banning many things that were just ordinary to people like buying Coca-Cola because it has the color red in their logo. Yes that happened, I personally talked to an old guy that was the father of the dude that used to give me guitar lessons and he confirmed it. He lived in those times and he himself said that people had immense fear of the government and there always was an unimaginably heavy atmosphere everywhere because anyone was a suspected threat to the government and people were simply disappearing over night. A single word against the regime and you would be arrested and tortured, and then killed. Which is just insane and lunatic as some shithole dictatorship like Turkmenistan. Again. My point is that they should have dealth with the threat, end the guerrillas and the terrorists instead of doing harm to the civilian population. Even the threat being big does not justify many of their measures. But that is just what I think and I am sure you will agree with me on this one.
2019-10-07 02:28
hmmmmm , buying a gun wasn't easy before the guerrillas nor during nor during the dictatorships in S.A , only in Brasil. In Chile they even had anti gun rights , in Argentina it was all very gray. I already said im not justifying anything and no , i wouldn't tell the innocent civilian victims of military torture that they should feel better because they were a minority , I'D TELL ANYONE WHO CLAIMS OTHERWISE THAT THEY WERE A MINORITY , you see , its not a matter of emotional or narrative , i just want the full real story to be known , if you want to have a discussion on my personal stance that can be done afterwards but i think i already made it clear , im against statism , im against colectivism and government intervention and im fully pro-liberty. If the guerrillas would've had to go against 9 million armed citizens + the government armed forces NOT IN A DICTATORSHIP , the dictatorship NEVER would've occured and the only innocent deaths would be those taken by the guerrillas.
2019-10-07 02:48
Actually Japan was almost out of weapons that's why they had to use kamikaze pilots. U.S was definitely winning the war, but US wanted to use the nukes to scare the Soviets. I do agree with other countries having more power than USA tho.
2019-10-03 21:12
I agree that we would win the war and we used the nuke to scare the soviets but I do think it was necessary based on the fact that we haven’t printed a Purple Heart since WW2 because we predicted it would take over 1 Million American lives for an invasion to succeed
2019-10-04 16:17
military deaths in the pacific theater Japanese: >2 million (plus about 800k civilians) United States: approx. 161,000
2019-10-03 23:23
no it isn't because of mutual assured destruction, so they can't do anything against russia, china, uk etc.
2019-10-03 20:02
Military impressive beyond words but the rest... meh. One thing that I have to mention is that americans really did a great feat at making such a huge and populous country a developed country with a very high GDP per capita. Impressive I have to say. But USA lags really really bad behind other countries in other aspects like overal infrastructure. Switzerland is awesome in that aspect and the world should learn from them.

Dude I know that... what I mean is that many countries would be far better if they tried to be like Switzerland in the past. You can't compare a fucking gigantic country both in size and population like USA to some country smaller than several states of other large countries like Brazil.
2019-10-03 20:20
Usa is so large that comparing it to tiny EU countries is kinda a dumb comparison. Like us average gdp per capita is somewhere around 58k but in the county I live (which has a population of 2 million) the average income is 105k per year. People living in West Virginia are generally going to be worse off than people in Washington DC. It varies such a large amount it's ludicrous to say that the us lags behind in important areas because it varies such a large amount
2019-10-03 20:31
Yes my friend, and that's why I said it is still a huge feat for americans to rank so high on the HDI list given the fucking gigantic size of the country. Read my previous reply above. And dude, please, fix your security issues, USA currently has 4 cities in the list of the 50 most violent in the world, which is completely unnacceptable for a developed country.
2019-10-03 20:44
It's because we have cities filled with migrants and people who don't respect our ideals. Black culture in the USA is so fucked too.

yea for sure, i absolutely think that some big changes are coming. overall i believe it's going to turn out pretty well for the people of the world. western countries won't have the overabundance of kids toys, imported goods from Asia and Southeast Asia, clothing choices, etc., but that also means the standard of living in those areas will increase with higher wages

2019-10-03 20:10
i think this whole shit with Russia is so dumb... lots of it is media over exaggeration, people still thinking about the cold war, and America's bs about trying to be the "best." we aren't enemies now and personally i think it's great that the US and Russia are in open conversations on a regular basis but hypothetically for shits and giggles, when it comes to a traditional war without nukes, it's difficult to predict who would actually come out on top. both countries are huge and have strong military power. personally i think it all depends on who invades who. sure America has a gun crisis, but then again would you really want to invade the US lol?
2019-10-03 23:31
According to some resources, Russia has more nukes than the whole rest of the world combined.
2019-10-03 23:33
yea i think you're right, but what is that good for? same goes to the amount that the US currently has as well. at this point they're just used as deterrents to prevent war on a very large scale now that the cold war is over, what do you really use those for? it's argued that it's much much more dangerous to have large quantities of them because it makes it more costly and difficult to ensure that they're always in working order (or not mistakenly lost or stolen) will the US or Russia use a nuclear weapon in our lifetime? i highly highly doubt it. the ramifications on a global scale would be tremendous. now... what happens if one gets in the hands of a terrorist group or what if a country all of a sudden goes completely rogue and insanely crazy? imo that's much much more of a concern than Russia
2019-10-03 23:41
We know humanity is fucked up when we have to use nukes to inflict fear in others to stop possibilities of war instead of going together for a better world.

Depends. Quality of life isn't the best by any means, healthcare is an absolute joke, violence is over the top. There are more mass shootings in a year in the us than in the rest of the world combined and it's not even close. There really isn't that much for you to be proud about and use to act superior to others.
2019-10-03 20:25
a man who knows what he is talking about, i like it. well done sir
2019-10-03 20:27
Violence is comparable to the UK Mass shootings have a wierd definition in the us that isn't uniform everywhere Some 90% of us have insurance which lowers the price to be hardly more than most other countries Quality of life is top 10 by most demographics

Still, it isn't something to be proud about. US isn't the worst place to live in the world, but you're really blind if you think it's one of the best places to live. It's not even close, I mean, just look up to the north and you'll see a great country to compare yourself to. I don't wanna bash America or anything, it's more of an argument against elitist comments coming from some Americans.
2019-10-03 20:41
If you live in one of the better areas it probably is the best place in the world to live. Of course that changes entirely if you live in a shit area like New York or California

That's the point though. Every single country has its better areas to live in, but the best countries when it comes to quality of life are great all around. That's why I mentioned your healthcare system, because it's a big issue in the us.
2019-10-03 20:49
The USA is sooooooo large though, it's hard to compare it to any other first world country. For example, my district of 2 million is more comparable in size to Denmark and is significantly better quality of life.

I was right for the biggest part, letting pas by that these are measurements that do not include every single way to measure wealth and livability. Just bare in mind that these where thoughts, not facts!
2019-10-05 22:25
if you would have scrolled down further you also saw this sentence ''Lack of coverage was a growing problem in 2010 when Democrats under Obama passed his health law. Now the bigger issue seems to be that many people with insurance are struggling to pay their deductibles and copays.'' 90% of the people are under coverage of a Health insurance, but they are still having massive struggles paying of deductibles and copays. if your surgery costs about 23.000, your deductibles and copays in the Netherlands will be around 500 maybe 650 euro's. its good to see that you guys are improving on the health care thing, but do not think that you already finished that problem
2019-10-03 23:10
ha.... surgery costs a LOT more than that. people need to understand that health care is a business in the US. it's a staggeringly unfortunate fact, and employers and consumers are ultimately the ones who get the shaft. it sucks, trust me..... definitely something i'm consistently pissed off about lol
2019-10-03 23:48
i did not tell you what kind of surgery. here its a business to, but its a business that everybody is required to use. just like the township communities and passports.
2019-10-04 00:21
unfortunately i can only wish it was like that for us capitalism and greed has twisted this nation to such an extent that the general population is being used to fund big pharma and health insurance companies people who might tell you that it isn't an issue are dead wrong. on average, an employer spends about $15k per employee, per year, providing whatever health care plan that the business provides. that health care plan is most likely not great and the individuals will still have to pay out of pocket for practically every doctor or hospital visit employers are getting fucked, individuals and families are getting fucked, and yet somehow people think "it's not a problem" on top of that we have sadistically dark big pharma companies that do whatever they can to extend the patent deadlines/exclusive rights to sell particular pharmaceuticals. who pays the high prices for those? o yea, the consumers of course this is one of the main reasons why health care and big pharma are such hot topics for this next election. it's unbelievable to me that this is actually a political subject to be discussed in 2019
2019-10-04 00:57
at least i am relieved to see that not all Americans are giant burger eating idiots. Sorry, but that's for a big part how the world looks at the USA currently. you clearly know what you are talking about. have a great day further sir.
2019-10-04 01:00
understandable, a pretty big chunk (no pun intended) of Americans are that way lol
2019-10-04 01:02
Mass shootings werent a thing 2 decades ago, most gun crime and crime in general is commited in states with strict gun control. My fix to the quality of life is to restrict healthcare profits to 100% and cut the military to start paying off debt/lowering taxes. As far as earning taxes go everyone should have the same/similar rates when it comes to salary. After that public education could be updated to some extent. Now welcome to the perfect country.

I understand that, but the numbers are through the roof when compared to the rest of the world. I don't think that banning guns will work at all, because it doesn't in countries like Brazil for instance, it just creates more problems like gun trafficking and violence in itself is going to increase, since only criminals will end up carrying weapons. But it needs more regulation. Now public education and the healthcare system need a change asap.
2019-10-03 20:52
Guns should be a part of public education. Teaching children how to safely operate and use a firearm would significantly reduce gun related incidents.
2019-10-03 21:06
is that not part of the problem? people knowing how to safely operate guns and firearms? these mass shooters, they know what they are doing. they know how to operate a gun otherwise they wouldn't be able to kill so many people so quickly.
2019-10-03 23:05
Read number 136. He puts it nicely
2019-10-03 23:58
these things have consequences and everybody knows it. If you see a guy being friendly and to close to a bear. If you see him getting attacked, you mind your step without a doubt. It works exactly the same with mass shootings. mass shooters saw others do it before them, they saw the consequences it had for them. They simply do not care or at least thats what i think. Cause no everybody knows about these mass shootings through the media, yet more and more people start these kind of things
2019-10-04 00:26
Yes of course it must be looked at in many ways. A few other things I would like to see happen are less media attention for the shooters, higher police presence at schools (mine only has one officer assigned to it), increase in police budget, and a higher focus on taking illegal guns. One of the more controversial ideas I have is totally taking away gun-free zones except for schools, banks, and government institutions
2019-10-04 00:46
okay, but illegal guns you say. You can buy guns in the united states legally right?
2019-10-04 00:47
I mean guns that are fully automatic without the owner having a license or guns that have been stolen or lost etc
2019-10-04 02:58
thank you for clarifying
2019-10-04 11:23
A larger problem are fucked up bullying and fighting rules in schools, defending yourself gets you suspended and bullying results in barely any consequences since expelling students is a pain in the ass in public schools. Otherwise I fully agree, although having some teachers legally carry well-secured concealed firearms will be better than wasting police resources
2019-10-04 17:19
the same logic is used to teach sex to kids, in return girls get pregned less after learning that such stuff exists and have consequences. i know it happened in brazil, they started teaching it in schools. It sounds controversial but just teaching that such stuff exists and have consequences can make a difference. just try it in a pilot state and look at the numbers, no?
2019-10-03 23:47
I think it should happen nation wide
2019-10-03 23:58
man is that a simple plan that would end in some pretty great results buuuuuuuut.... all those ideas are squashed with capitalism, lobbying, big business, and wealthy people wanting to be more wealthy we're fucked, my friend
2019-10-04 01:00
Quit being such a fucking nihilist, those are all policies that can be changed, everybody wants to be more wealthy, you can’t act like that’s only the US, and what do you propose other than capitalism and the free market?
2019-10-04 16:42
i never said it was only the US, but it's fucking rampant here. the US is like the capitalistic example for the world
2019-10-04 17:30
What do you propose to counteract that though? We can point out problems as much as we want but I want to hear what you think will fix it?
2019-10-04 17:52
i think a good start would be to remove financial backing and/or lobbying when it comes to political decisions, policies, and new bills let's face it... if you have enough money in this country, you can practically swing or sway things as you see fit. that's no secret
2019-10-04 17:54
I agree with you there
2019-10-04 17:56
Pretty sure most people in Congress approve of such a move + laws can be removed later, with the market regulating itself since more affordable prices will lead to better business, making current prices not profitable due to a lack of clients. Big business should be slightly split up though, with such laws being reverted later on once the market kicks in
2019-10-04 17:16
Congress does, you’re right. But money controls everything over here and financial backing/lobbyists pushes and sways just about every political decision that is made.
2019-10-04 21:37
+10 i agree with all of that unfortunately :/ but i'm still proud to be an American. the tools are out there for anyone to become successful and accomplish real goals in life. so far i've served in the military for almost 10 years, i have a college education, and i've genuinely lived a very comfortable lifestyle. not to mention i really like how the US has such a diverse landscape. mountains, oceans, warm, cold, desert, lush forests, etc. Travel in the US is super easy (and quite cheap) and there's the opportunity to see and experience a lot of different things

There is a difference between being most powerful and being "best power", the later requires people not being a...holes and unfortunately a significant portion of the US people are just that. Just entertaining the idea of using nukes and sort celebrating having used nukes is not exactly showing much in terms of being "best". It is like your president, seems to me he isn't the best anything.
2019-10-03 20:38
A) You just got baited hard by OP B) You don’t live in the US idk how you came to the discovery that the majority of the US are assholes C) Again you don’t live in the US how do you know if our president is good or not? The media that constantly tries to demonize him? Or the people that listen to that media for their only source of news
2019-10-04 16:45
A) So sue me. B) Been there, know people that live there - one is a close friend that lives in Texas (no, he is not an immigrant). But just seeing the issues you guys are having and how more than 1/3 still backs the disaster that Trump and the GOP has become. C) Come on - Trump lies every time he opens his mouth or uses a keyboard. And it has an impact outside the US as well, him kissing the ass of Putin, making a mess in the middle east, his trade war circus... Give an example of something that Trump has had a positive impact on. And make it something real, not just something others did he tries to take credit for, Maybe an election promise he has fulfilled?

You dont understand. Defense wise the USA is superior in every single way. Even in a nuclear war we would face far less potential damage than they would. You only need to destroy moscow to completely obliterate the russian economy lmao.
2019-10-04 12:09
Damn your thinking is so shortsighted and naive it is just stupid. For starters Russia is bigger than just Moscow, if the US did what you suggest then you would have to write off a lot of US cities and surrounding areas. More likely it would lead to an all out WW3 which would be end for mankind.
2019-10-04 17:04
But such a war will never break out, apart from proxy wars
2019-10-04 17:22
why on earth would we attack Russia or China? the cold war is over, why is this still such a huge subject that people continue to talk about?
2019-10-03 23:58
Well, if you watch the news you can see that there is tension between Russia and EU, USA... The thing is that USA wants everything. They are everywhere. You are like a rats. Damn, how much I dislike USA. You have your military bases all over the world. Open your eyes, when its still time.
2019-10-04 09:31
We have military bases all over the world because we are the biggest provider of defense in the UN, we pay countries for their own defense especially those near by Russia, also if we wanted everything, why wouldn’t we invade North Korea, China, Russia, Mexico, Syria, Iran? You’re logic is literally retarded
2019-10-04 16:49
Because those countries wont let you in???? Where is your brain? You are provider of defense? From whom? Whom are you defending from? The only agressor i can see is USA, not Russia. You have recently had a military excersise right next to Russian borders. Isnt that agression? you are building military bases near the borders, but why? You just say its for protecting us, but its aint.
2019-10-04 17:13
It is though The Baltic’s are under the most threat of Russia decides to be aggressive again, and sorry I don’t think I read that right, Russia isn’t aggressive? Sorry my memory is a little fuzzy, who owns Crimea now? And who is backing the rebels in Ukraine? And who is backing Syria? The government that gassed their own people?
2019-10-04 17:50
Tension according to who? What type of news source? Defense spending is a gigantic industry over here and lots of jobs depend on it. Politics, politics, politics. It’s not even a viable concern or option that countries like the US, China, and/or Russia get into a massive conflict like that. Even small ones where 2 sides think differently (like Syria) aren’t nearly enough for something like that to happen.
2019-10-04 21:40

2019-10-03 21:20
i'm not baiting, but ok thx anyways
2019-10-03 22:00
Will have a go.. If even India & Pakistan were to have a full scale nuke war (with what they have right now 130 vs 140 Atom Bombs), it would probably kill about 2 Billion people in total out to a decade due to inability to grow food over a massive area of the earth, according to the experts anyway. If USA & Russia were to have a full scale nuke war, it would kill almost all life on The Earth. It would be even worse than The Great Dying Extinction Event. Most surviving Humans would starve in under 1 year if the Radiation didn't get them. Also factor in that almost every Nuclear Reactor on earth would also blow up, melt down or whatever after a month or 2 due to all of their Human personal being killed during/shortly after the extinction event......
2019-10-03 23:34
for sure, i recently saw an article about that (im assuming you probably did as well). that is honestly one of my biggest fears.... it's so hard to predict what exactly would happen (or when) if India, Pakistan, NK, or some terrorist group were to use a nuclear weapon or dirty bomb. the implications on a global scale would be enormous. Russia and China? i honestly don't know why people continue to revert back to them all the time. the cold war ended over 20 years ago and generally speaking the US, Russia, and China have pretty good relations right now
2019-10-04 00:02

Same thing as your president keeping out immigrants and what not. You're a fucking retard if you think Trump is a threat from the inside lmao. Brainwashed idiot EU retard
2019-10-03 23:42
he actually is a very serious threat from the inside.... currently our social and political division is at the highest level since the civil rights movement people argue that Obama started that trend, people argue that Clinton did, but what matters is that the image and idea of Trump is undeniably causing that division to get larger and larger. that's a serious problem that could potentially have grave implications in the near future
2019-10-04 01:06
Social and political division started when the democrats started calling everyone racist. Not to mention the media is constantly telling everyone that's he's evil and a "threat to our democracy" and what not, which is why you believe that.

Never forget when you lost to Canada in a war
2019-10-03 23:04
A) we didn’t lose the war, it was a defensive war, the only thing you succeeded in doing was burning down a couple buildings in Washington B) it wasn’t Canada it was the UK
2019-10-04 16:55
A couple of building???? It was the God damn White House. Is this what they teach you in American Education?
2019-10-05 00:13
So fucking what? I know it was the White House dumbass I didnt say which buildings. why the fuck does it matter? it still stands that the only thing you succeeded in doing was burning a couple buildings in Washington (i.e. the white house and capitol buildings) either way, the US beat the UK (Canada was a colony still, you didn't beat us and neither did you're overlords)
2019-10-05 00:17
Lol to think that you won is hysterical. Better check that one again
2019-10-05 00:18
It was a defensive war that ended in a stalemate, you tell me. I'm pretty sure if a country is on the defensive and the other side comes to them asking for a peace conference, the defensive side won.

Well currently yes. In history, debatable. If we're talking about pure dominance compared to other countries then the USA prob isn't the strongest in history. Like currently, there is China and Russia who can challenge the USA. But, the American Dollar is a really strong weapon. (Cause u gotta obey by American laws if u use the us dollar, fuck that rule) but I'm pretty sure there were other empires in history that were much more dominant
2019-10-03 23:07
in relation to the other countries/empires/nations at the time, i'd argue that these are stronger than the US's currently. 100% honest i didn't google any of this, so i probably missed some British Empire Roman Empire Roman Republic Ottoman Empire Pretty much all of the Chinese Dynasties Mongolian Empire French Napoleon Russian Tsars / Russian Empire Spanish Empire maybe the Greeks? Persians?

Just sit back and wait for your welfare while we invent more things to make your life better, so that you can bash us even further. We dont mind.

However. no point in going on with you.. not like you ever said something real or true on this site.

When you say power, do you mean military power or influence? The US has the greatest military in the history of the world, military power, capability, bases, etc. As far as influence goes, its prob a bit closer. Everyone has heard the saying 'the sun never set on the British empire'. However, one could easily counter with an example like 'look how many countries have mcdonalds', and that's only a small example.
2019-10-04 00:08
No shit you military power is greater than the british empire. They had bows and arrows. But your military power is irrelevant. The nuke was invented and that evened out the playing field. No country can do any thing to a country with nukes bc of MAD principle. So the British empire had alot more military power than USA, in the sense that they could use their military power. Influence?? You shitting me, the british empire had so much more influence than USA today. You can't even make a shit country like Iran to act nicely. China has just about as much influence as USA today and in the near future they gonna surpass USofA. (your country is more divided than ever, poverty and inequality is on the rise). I don't get why you praise your own country this much.

I know that in America you don't learn much of history outside of your country so yes there's many more powerful countries that existed in the world before you. - Alexander the Great established the largest empire the ancient world had ever seen. - The Huns in Asia. - Roman empire. - The Brits when they still had all their colonies. - Modern day Russia could beat modern Day USA and that's not bullshit. I could continue this list from the top of my head with at least 5 more examples after that i'd need to dwell more into history.

All internal violence, nothing about spies, stop living in the cold war era. Also, when will you stop "fighting countries that do not want to pay you" and pay up your 20 trillion debt? Are not you the richest country in the world? USA is a hell of a cool country but stupid people like you ruin it.
2019-10-04 16:41
glad you agree it's the best country.
2019-10-04 16:47
I see USA as a really damn cool country with lots of good things and I see it as an example of how countries should be in several aspects but sorry, I don't think you are THE best in the world. Other countries are far more stable and better off than you. But yes, the country that fights the countries that do not want to pay it will not pay its 20 trillion it owes. Nice. very nice. The irony is so funny. Stop invading and bombing other countries for oil and have some ethics for fuck's sake.
2019-10-04 17:01
soon is your turn, you should be worried.

2019-10-04 16:18
no? we would shit on them both and nothing would happen to us, our defense system is far superior than theirs (if they ever have one) so nochance my friend, also nice hiding your flag, probably a flag of a country that we're shitting on atm
2019-10-04 16:30

''Most powerful country to ever exist''. if USSR did not split up you would have been shitting yourselves by hearing that name, in future please shut the fuck up. America is not that strong.

2019-10-04 17:21
You wouldnt dare to fight with Russia or China for example, but yea there was more powerful countries before USA, I know that your education sucks, but this is the list that first comes to my mind: - Rome - Mongolians - England - France - ZSRR and even before that Russian Empire - Third Reich - Macedonians - Ottoman Empire - Maurice Empire - Timurids Empire - Spain - China - Umayyad Caliphate aaaand USA is not even the top10 largest countries in history USA is powerfull, but man its not the greatest country in human history.

Only idiot would respect the USA for their "power", mate:)) North America is gorgeous, one of the most beautiful sceneries etc, but a dazzling amount of patriots whose buy that shit about borderless possibilities of the country write off all the positive points to nothing. How cant you understand that Europe with Russia, America and China cannot exist without each other.

USA has never achieved anything against any country with a proper military. They could not even dominate Vietnam. Poorly trained Vietnam shot down USA airplanes like flies. Pushing buttons from far away to throw bombs on Taliban is not impressive at all. But I am glad for USA’s efforts against islamic terrorism.

Its the most powerful since the early 20th century ( except Nazi Germany on its peak) . IMO it will still be at the top for around 20 more years before China takes over .

"if we wanted we could've nuked iran or even russia." No you couldn't ever heard of mutually assured destruction? You would've gotten fucked as well.
2019-10-04 19:40
Not BEST power, but the second scariest We should be scared of US right now, with retarded bully president and dysfunctional democracy. I don´t fear war from US, but bullying others non-stop. Still, China is worse, because they have a plan for World Domination.
2019-10-04 22:17
"if we wanted we could've nuked iran or even russia. and even if someone tries to attack us there is no chance, and ofc he will be terminated afterward." Easily the dumbest thing i read on HLTV today. Do you really think you could Nuke russia and get away with it? If any President would be that stupid not only Russia and the US would get destroyed but it would start the 3rd World War. To even think you can attack Russia with no real consequences just shows your REALLY BIG arrogance and ignorance.
2019-10-05 00:02
Americans are literally the braindead europeans we didnt want to keep.
2019-10-05 00:14
1) Lost against rice farmers 2) Stealing all the petrol across the world 3) Soon being rekted by Russia & China cuz you are arrogant fucks Enjoy your life buddy, soon China will take over the world you'll see. For now, you can keep on rush B at school & plant bomb in the math class that's what americans are the best at :)

"if we wanted we could've nuked iran or even russia. and even if someone tries to attack us there is no chance, and ofc he will be terminated afterward." “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” ― Albert Einstein Think before posting your brainwashed bullshit propaganda.

North America 007DBR9 
No, the most powerful country to ever exist was Great Britain during it's high time. They started the industrial revolution, had a massive population, especially for the size of the isles. Also they owned 1/4th of the world. Their navy was the most powerful in the world by far up until WW2 ended. The red is the British google.com/search?q=1836+world+map&rlz=1.. There wasn't any country that could compete with them, russia had a decent sized military, but you know, it's russia, with a lack of infrastructure and industry. The second best industry was Germany, but they weren't global enough and could be conquered, unlike the British because of being on an island and having by far the strongest and largest navy in the world. #2 would probably be Nazi Germany. If they were able to make peace and keep what they had, they wouldn't be too global, but would have a stronger industry than every other country combined and well as 400 million people. Anyways 6/8 post USA top 10 at best

definitely the strongest current power, not of all time tho.
2019-10-05 19:21
Who would you say is?
2019-10-13 18:50
Of course USA is the most powerful in History. The roman Legions were great power but even a phalanx with shields locked can't stop an f-35 fighter jet or withstand an Abrams tank.
2019-10-05 22:28
Dont think so, the Mongol Empire was probably more powerful then USA.
2019-10-06 22:16
I'd say the british empire. Largest country/Empire to ever exist
2019-10-06 22:21
> best power > lost against rice farmers, mountain men and bedouins pick one, KEKW. anyways this was a good bait tho 4/8
