Russia can take all of the US, however it will stand upon a pile of ashes if they are indeed successful.
In a war Russia V's America without any allies as the question asks a nation only. Russia might be able to "conquer" the US or whatever its left of it.
What I mean is that the technological capabilities of the Russian lags moderately below that of the mighty US. However all you need is enough Ballistic Missiles and Nuclear Bombs to turn all of the US to ashes, in the insuring war, Russia might get caught so can the entire world. There are enough WMDs to destroy the world several times. If all the nukes are launches in a all out war. I'm afraid the US will not survive, neither will the enemy.
Roaches will survive. And whatever Alien that comes afterwards is going to have to talk with the manager if he wants to take the remains of what was once called "Earth"
We are a nation susceptible to greed and the hungers of gluttony. It wouldn't be far fetched or a surprise at all, really, if we had slowly began to trade off sections of our land in making up for the summations of debt we've racked up. I can imagine that the USA, a member of the UN and specifically dedicated to preventing war and suffering, would fold small pieces of land under the threat of disbandment or collective force from the other large players.
I'm guessing that a crafty, small country might want to turn the U.S. Against one of its allies and let us battle it out, then when both us and the country we were at war with are completely wiped of the earth, that small, crafty country could conquer whatever is left of what was once called the land of the free. Maybe they invade, but not a military invasion, maybe just a spy, and plant a couple of false documents, someone to stir up the people (because a lot of people in America are total warmongers, I bet a lot of people would gladly sign us up to take down China or North Korea, even if they had no proof that China or North Korea did anything wrong) and before you know it, the people are demanding a war, the leaders of the country give them a war, and all hell breaks loose, nuclear bombs are flying Soon, only a couple small countries are functioning, and the small, crafty country that started all of this lays claim to what remains of America.
Yes there is one nation that could invade and successfully conquer the United States of America and of course it’s called China ok China has more military And of course more power as well ok and yes I think that there is any nation that could invade and successfully conquer the USA ok ✌️Bye
The US military currently dominates the world's militaries. However. The US has two inherent weaknesses. 1) The US is a republic. This nation cannot just order its troops into combat. There must be a vote. 2) Many Americans will support the other side. In short, Victory is not a sure thing.
All the prospective country would need to do us have trained soldiers immigrate in large numbers over time. Than join military and/or work in vital sectors. The Millions of Americans with guns don't count if a large number of them are sleeper cells once the country gets invaded. As many countries require compulsory military service it could easily look as if the sleepers were regular civilian immigrants of various ages and genders, Thus raising absolutely no suspicion.
In the war of 1812, Canadians successfully invaded the USA, which was very, very prosperous and hotheaded at the time. Canadians successfully overpowered Americans at Detroit, Queenston heights, and Frenchtown. And it was the Native Canadians that did all the work. This set the stage for the Sack of Washington, DC which clearly showed that Canada was the greater military power!!!
There is no single nation on Earth that could pull off an invasion of the United States, though - despite what the military guy who voted "no" said - if any superpower combined with the others they have many options to take over the US. Such as sparking a revolt, firing nuclear weapons (which Russia has the largest arsenal of, not America), causing anarchy (collapse of democratic government), or using electronical weapons (such as EMP's which collapse the national power grid).
The majority of the people who said 'No' use the argument that Americans are armed to the teeth ready to protect. You sure about that? Remember back in March, the Emory college students who were intimidated because someone wrote 'TRUMP' in chalk on the sidewalks? This current generation is not the WW2 generation in the least bit. Although its made up of some patriots, this current generation is arrogant, spoiled, and self centered. Im pretty sure if we were ever invaded, the liberals would defend the invaders by flooding the media on how we shouldn't hurt them because they too are people with feelings. You really think the current 25 year olds who spend more time grooming themselves would pick up a gun and end a life?? PLEASE! The US government has been disarming its citizens for years and its only going to get worse. In addition, this current generation follows the mantra of, "Someone else will protect me". Although many heroes join our military every day, it only makes up a fraction of the US population. Schools, colleges, universities.. Many are taking the american flag down due to conflict of interest by the liberals. When is the last time anyone reading this post ever attended a veterans day parade? When was the last time YOU ever went up to a WW2 vet, the same person who literally saved you from saluting a nazi flag, and thanked him for his service?? No. Indeed, America is no long the great nation it once was. In debt over our heads, living on a false dream that our resources will be around forever. The false idea that our technology will save us. Wake up. America is not the leader in technological advances anymore. We are trying and failing to hold onto the dreams of our parents and grandparents. America is a broken country politically, emotionally, spiritually, religiously, mentally, and sexually. We no longer stand together as one country. No one from this current generation would create Victory Gardens like they did during WW2. No one from this generation would be willing to give up their 'rights' to materials which make their everyday lives comfortable; such as bread, copper, silver, gold. The moment america gets attacked, 50% of this current generation would insist someone else protect them, 20% would agree with the invaders cause, 10% would be already drunk and useless, 15% would have no clue what to do, and 5% would join the military.
Because, every empire that has been on this planet has seen its downfall. Americans think that they rule this world and they are the chosen ones. All of the entire world combined could easily destroy america. Also even the citizens of america would rebel and fight them back(the americans). Americans are so ignorant to believe that there country controls the whole earth.
The reason for my argument is because of the fact that one single country cannot conquer it. First of all the USA has a lot of allies, and if a country tries to invade, America's allies would be against you, and when it comes to wars, America usually wins. Also, America invests a lot of the budget on the military, a little more than 1/5th of it, and America is one of the strongest nations of the world, so the chances of any nation successfully invading AND conquering the U.S.A, would be almost impossible.
This isn't based off some over enthusiastic pride of my nation or "Murcia #1 yeah"! Or anything. This is based off pure fact. There is no nation on this earth and I would go as far as to say any two nations combined that could sucessfuly conquer the US. We have the most advanced military in the world. A defense system that is unparalleled. Our military is one of the largest, best equipped, best trained, and best financed. Our Navy and Air Force are larger then any three nations combined and far far more advanced. Based off that alone no nation could invade us. They would have to attack by sea or by air and our superior Navy and Air Force would blast their troop transport to bits before the invasion even begun. And there's a thousand other reasons why our nation is impenetrable.
First off, the world depends on the USA. If a nation was ballsy on taking on the USA, other nations would jump in aid of the USA. Second, we have the most powerful army in the world.
"You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass."
There is only one way it would really happen, and it wouldn't be "successful" in a meaningful way. The first would require a coalition of nations to match us. But unless our country destroys our relations with the rest of the world, it would set off another world war and likely destruction of the earth for life. Even if we had a civil war to weaken us, we still have too many nukes to go to war with directly.
The only way you do it is with some absurd jump in technology that would render nukes useless.
No adversary - one nation or several - neither has the military arsenal nor the capabilities to successfully invade, conquer and OCCUPY the USA. This opposition force would lack the following assets:
1. Naval support ships- carriers, destroyers, subs, etc. - No match for US Navy. Who can defeat the US Navy and have a "massive" amphibious assault force to land ashore in US? No one can!
2. Air Superiority - No nation and its assoc. Allies can match US air superiority in terms of fighters, bombers, and most importantly stealth aircraft. In addition to gaining naval superiority, the adversary would have to defeat the US Air Force and US Naval airpower. No group can do this by today's global military standards.
3. US Trident Subs are the silent killers roaming the ocean. One Trident sub has enough nuclear firepower with cruise missiles and surface-to-air-missiles to wipe-out literally all major industrial centers of the old Soviet Union. These subs are stealth in nature and go undetected by any adversary globally. They could launch missiles anywhere out in the ocean and take down ANY foe around the globe. The recipient nation would not know what hit them. They are the ultimate doomsday weapon system and there is NO defense to them as we know it. They could target any foe before any invasion plans were to get underway. And no one could stop these killing machines!
4. Nuclear weapons systems - ICBMS, cruise missiles, etc. No group of countries could match the U.S.
5. Space technology / laser systems / satellite surveillance - US has an edge here as well. We can detect an enemy's movement from space on a global scale and offer offensive capabilities as well.
6. Lastly, no one could effective occupy the US without first defeating its military. This would eventually mean a nuclear war first. No one could risk such a dreadful horror on humanity!
The United States spends more money than any other country on defense and has the 2nd largest active military in the world. The United States simply has to much of a powerful military to be overthrown by one single country. It would take multiple military powerhouses to be able to invade and conquer the United States.
In all reality, 1 in 3 Americans own multiple firearms, 1 in 6 are trained proficiently in their use. Our civilian force is the size of China standing army alone...And needless to say their citizens were not brought up to hunt and shoot. And i'm not talking about the liberals in New York or California, you'll embrace our 2nd amendment rights when the time has come and you need the country boys to come save your office space.
The United States is the most powerful military force on earth, no other country could match that. Not to mention that our allies are the rest of the free world UK, Australia, Canada, Japan, South Korea, and most of Europe. Not to mention our civilian population that would fight. It would take a internal force to bring down the U.S., not external. We our or own worst enemies, but another military.....It would be suicide for them.
Size of the US Population is over 300 million with 80 million or so has multiple advance weapon (Guns, Assult riffle etc) that most other country's military cant even effort. It has to be nuke war otherwise no one can even challenge USA.
1) - Enemy has to cross their army across the sea to reach USA which will Face the navy firs,t then Air Force then God knows what they have in the sky (USA)
2) - Then there are sub marine
3) - after fighting the entire USA military you will face 80 million citizen with guns/assult riffle...
During the American Revolution, the British Empire and Great Britain had the most powerful military in the world and while the Continental Army did not have all the resources available during the 1770's that Great Britain had, the USA did whatever it took to defeat the most powerful army in the world during the American Revolution because these men who fought and gave their lives were willing to serve to that future American's not yet born could live in the United States of America.
