This is my first debate and im not the most educated on the subject but i decided to do something a little out of my comfort zone. If i do something wrong please tell me :)
I do believe that we would be able to take the world in a global dominion campaign. US military might is stronger than any nation I know of. Even during the years of the Cold War, the intense confrontation between the Soviet Union and the United States, we always avoided any direct clash between our civilians and, most certainly, between our military. Vladimir Putin
If the United States attempted to dominate the world, many countries would take notice and put an end to it quickly. Our military is not powerful enough to dominate the world. When Germany tried they were stopped. If America stopped, it'sown people would put an end to it. Many countries are home to family of American people. America versus the world would end in a tragic death that is America
Not true in an assault by the sea we have the ability to launch numerous jets from the 10 aircraft carriers we have not counting the additional 9 helicopter carriers we have. We also have MASSIVE air superiority, the us with a total of 13 thousand aircraft in operational status. We also have advanced avionics, which is the systems running the jets and the weapons systems in the jets. Besides an F-22(Freedom dispenser) would mach you out before you even know its there. The only country that beats us in tank power is China and Russia, granted China have about 1000 more tanks but they are old outdated tanks. We have abrams :). Russia has nearly 16 thousand tanks but most of them are older tanks not alot are new tanks running off of newer systems like our abrams. We also spend more than 550 BILLION dollars on our military yearly. That more than triples the closest contender which is China with a measly 100 billion. We also have to take into account the patriotism of the good ol US of As citizens. In WW2 we had an active duty percentage of 11.5% thats about 12.5 million people active in the war. If we had 11.5% of the current population participating in the war effort...Thats 37 million soldiers, not just any soldiers either thats AMERICAN. Thats more Special Operations soldiers, thats more RANGERS, thats more marines, and thats more aircraft carriers. I guarantee that our budget would be at least doubled in the time of war. giveing our military more room for expansion and improvement. We are also working on exoskeletal suits and gentically modifying to make our soldiers work more efficiently and effictively. https://www.youtube.com... http://www.globalfirepower.com...
America may have the equipment to pull of the task, but the world is not willing enough. Firstly, Americans would not back this attempt to take over the world, including the American troops that would be fighting it. The world would easily join forces to put an end to a start of any attack before it starts. There are spies all over America from other countries. The nations of the United Nations all agree that it is okay to spy on the Nation's happenings. They can deploy spies and surveillance provided it doesn't invade privacy. If an aircraft carrier loaded with equipment were to start going over the Atlantic, they would get smoked by enemy aircraft and ships. The equipment may be there, but the resistance would be too strong.
Previously you mentioned that the Americans that have immigrated to America wouldn't let this happen. Why did they move to America in the first place? Because they liked it better than where they started off. Think back to Vietnam, what did we have our soldiers doing then? Killing civilians that fought back, do you think they enjoyed doing it?? No, but they had their orders and a soldier follows his orders. Civilian casualties happen all the time, its just So yes they would maintain the attack on the world. As you so clearly stated to we have the equipment to maintain the attack as well. And what we lose we could just re-stock our nation with the equipment and men of conquered countries. Also your spy argument, the part about surveillance, America has superior space tech. We could make it to were the rest of the world couldn't utilize space and that would leave them virtually blind. Hell, they wouldn't even be able to predict the weather. Canada isn't going to put up much off a fight and invading Canada is going to solve our "fuel problems". And Mexico doesn't threaten America either, they don't have the military capabilities. If we took Canada and Mexico it would effectively block any land attacks in addition to the already stumped air and naval attacks. Nobody has the ability to attack America and end it by destroying us, our space superiority would allow us to see any oncoming attack before it happens and then we could effectively counter it. That's not an option then. So beating us on the battlefield?? As you so graciously pointed out we have the equipment for the attacks, so battlefield defeat is highly unlikely. When all you have is a hammer everything else looks like a nail.
While you are right about the equipment and space, the use of this stuff being built and used would raise too much attention. What would be said to deter the curiosity of the victims? I can't argue this much further as I was late to respond and I have only seconds left
