When America REALLY tries to take over the world.
    #1258459 - 01/29/03 12:15 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

If a full blown neuclear/thermoneuclear weapon is ever detonated in an act of terrorism, that will be the end of it. America will set about attacking, and permanently occupying just about every country we don't trust.

In short, we will set as a goal to take over the world on a timescale of about 10 years.

My question is: can we pull it off? How much of the world could America successfully occupy?

Libbie saying what conservatives want: ALL OF IT!
Uneducated Libbie response: 75% (which will turn out to be 25%)  :blush:
Libertarian: None
Conservative: Hopefully none, but we'll do what's necessary.

Edit:
Almost forgot Rono's response: Depends how much oil they want.  :grin:

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

No...it just depends on who has oil.  :smirk:
Oil bearing Country = Terrorist Country that needs to be "liberated" of it's burden.

America will quickly collapse if it tries something like that.  I think their power is overestimated, superior technology cannot compensate for a relatively small army.  They would end up spreading themselves too thin.

Good luck trying to occupy Iraq, cuz you are gonna have a huge mess on your hands.  :frown:

If America got nuked, we would have an army of 50 million trained within a year.

If America got nuked, I somehow doubt that there would be much use for an Army at that point...

Assuming that could actually happen, you would have to build ships and transports to move 50 million, set up supply lines, etc.  Eventual domestic economic collapse, labour shortages, terrorism, Unabombers and McVieghs, etc. 

All the while, the rest of your enemies will be building their armies just as fast.

I dont think US world domination is possible.  The US could dominate North and South America, but not the Middle East, Europe, or Asia.  The oceans are just too big. :tongue:

For the simple reason that if a war had escalated to the point that nuclear weapons are being used it kind of defeats the entire prupose of having an army. No government is going to send their boys to invade a radioactive wasteland.

So you think if we get an anonnymous nuke, we'll just blow up everyone that might have had something to do with it?

We could do that.

Let me put it this way...look at what happened after only 3000 Americans died...Afghanistan is still smouldering from that and the terrorists weren't even from there.

Afghanistan was smouldering when we got there.

I believe they are better off now than they were before under the Taliban.
