Russia

Nuclear armed, bold, 3rd largest military, but hurting from U.S and E.U sanctions, and the sole reason NATO was formed. Great and historical military leaders have failed to conquer this nation because of its winter, this is Russia.

The USA are doing it themselves. Nobody is heading against them. It's all on purpose.

Its funny to look at these polls and see the same pattern. Russia is bad... America is good... So all the American going by this simple mind set pick China. Americans love to grasp the chance to say Russia's not a threat it as..... Regional power. Also the person who made this poll is not the best. WHAT.. "3rd largest military", "but hurting from U.S and E.U sanctions" in American language Russia is bad/weak.... "strive to destroy America and South Korea, but are militarily obsolete compare to either of those two. " I know u Americans love to think North Korea could be destroyed in 1m if they threatened us, but it has like 8,000,000 men in reserve and nukes. Its not much weaker than south Korea.

@biggest_pro_going Although I agree with you in that Russia is not the 3rd largest military (its the 2nd), North Korea is no were near as powerful as South Korea.

North Korea is a joke! They couldn't conquer a gnat! Iran doesn't want any trouble. They just want to figure their own stuff out. Putin is a threat to the whole world but as old as he is and as quick as his haters are starting to crop up he is about to have his own issues, and China doesn't want beef with us! China is a rival, but not an enemy. We profit from the success each other gives off. The one who buys everything and the one who makes everything.

North Korea doesn't even have enough fuel to power all their ships and aircraft. They've been rationing for years now. Their logistics are also limited to the point were they can't feed their own troops beyond their own boarders. All of their equipment in terms of heavy armor, planes, artillery, ships, and missile systems are all at early cold war era tech (1970's), and their nuclear arsenal is also lacking. They've had three nuclear tests, all underground and in the kiloton range, and to date no reliable missile test to deliver them. Their long range capabilities are nonexistent and their short range ones have such a sketchy success rate that no sane nation would rely on it. And like most dictatorships, their military leadership is comprised of officers who were given their positions due to their relationship to the leading party, not to any actually leadership or tactical/strategic skills.
