Our air force would still rolfstomp them in war.

Numbers aren't the only things that win wars. Where we're fighting, how we're doing it also count. As does timing, preparation, availability of supplies and to safe bases.

You clearly didn't do much research if you confused the navy with the air force...

The US has no domestic manufacturing base and therefore no strategic industries making us dependent on foreign countries. Our infrastructure is crumbling, and our power and communications grids have fallen significantly behind. For all our toys, see how we fair in an invasion when our resources are cutoff.

There is no country on the planet that can challenge United States dominance in a conventional battle.

But on the other hand, it's important to look at the last ten years as a reminder that we're not invincible. The rules of engagement are important. We could kick China's military in the ass, but could we successfully occupy their country? Doubtful.

We have numbers higher quality, much higher budget than any country, and more foreign bases though

This is absurdly false. And, as of late, more and more companies are coming back to America to do their manufacturing. Blame it on the economic recession we have had the last few years...but it has been good for businesses.

A ridiculous conclusion based on a false premise.

The opposite is true. It is improving.

This is only partially true. In some ways, the US has a much better communications system than others. In some areas, we are ahead of much of the world in communications. Still, in others, we are behind. For instance, you can get close to 100Mbps download speed in New Jersey in some areas but in Montana, you'll be lucky to get DSL.

We are testing, in Kansas, a 1000Mbps residential speed service for internet. Imagine this deploying to most of the US? I look forward to it. big grin

Yeah, how could we possibly survive with plenty of weapons, food, and energy resources against a fairly impossible invasion scenario? big grin

Colossus-Big C, please use "Google" more often.

Almost every last question you ask, as of late, can easily be answered with less than 1 minute of Google searching.


The answer to your question is "yes". Missile defense systems have been worked on for decades and the technology is just now maturing. Look up GBI and missiles to read about stuff.

Or just google search "shoot down ICBMs". Yes, you can "ask" google search questions just like that and it finds the answer for you. no expression
