I want to hear what other people have to say and if they think America would win. Personally I think they would because of how big (numbers) the army is. Anyone is free to argue against me. Bring it on!

There is no way would we win war against Russia since China is its Allie as it is same with North Korea. China is Russia's main Allie and China is so overly populated and there military is huge as it is way bigger than America's army. We would be a complete idiot to challenge Russia since they can force there citizens to go to war and they would define fly make sure to have more soldiers than ours.

It's not as much the amount of people in the army. America have more battle tanks, attack helicopters, submarines, jets and also will have the help of the United Kingdom (who is the 5th strongest army in the world) and even Japan. Also, America spends a lot more money on its army, such as: This year they have spent $367 billion on America's army/defenses and they are also the biggest military spenders in the world.The weapons America use are also very strong (some of the strongest in the world), they use M4's, M9's, M1911's, M107, M17's and more. America is extremely passionate about its army and will be willing to sacrifice a lot to win against Russia.

America are also very, very technologically advanced. America are known for having powerful weapons and developing lots of new technology. Nearly every piece of new technology that comes out, America always tries its hardest to get it and spends billions on it. Finally, Russia are know where near as rich as America.

Finally, to finish off I am going to say that America are known for their strength around the world, no one would dare start a war with them. So America would win...
P.s if you're just going to forfeit the next round, don't bother because you won't win anyway

If we are talking Nuclear Warfare, with the capabilities of US and Russia, nobody wins.

If we are talking without nukes it will come down to who gets involved. WW3 would be a large scale war, not just between US and Russia. It would depend on if North Korea and China supported Russia and if NATO and most pro-western nation supported US.

Russia has more Nukes then the USA, And Can equal thr number of All NATO nukes with BRICS. Also, Only One CONFIRMED Nuclear country That has no law preventing it frim ysing Nukes whenever it wants to is the North Korea, And they hate the USA. If Iran has nukes, then BRICs can destroy 15~ USA cities before Retalliation, And The USA can't strike russia for t either, The USA Has to strike NK. The USA also is in a no-gas wmd deal with other nations, While NK can use them First, as well as has To fight Political People in using bio-Weapons, Which Sk claimed NK had.

Dude. Conventional warfare (i.e Army size, Tanks, Aircraft) mean NOTHING in the face of nuclear warfare. In that regard Russia and the US are equals, although I feel that Russia would be more likely to deploy a nuke then the US would.
