    Default America Vs. Israel

    On the back of the UK government condemning Israeli assasination squads stealing UK identities to travel to their targets countries I was talking to a friend of mine about Israel's formidability, for small nation they are very formidable and I was wondering what everyone thinks about their capacity to overcome even nation no. 1 in an armed struggle, they defeated the UK in a terror campaign at their inception and have been fighting a war steadily since.

    Wait, are you asking if Israel could defeat the U.S. in a war?

    Israel has nuclear weapons. Also the United States has given Israel massive quantities of military aid. Israel is bristling with weapons. I can't imagine Israel and the United States fighting a war (wouldn't that mean that all of that military aid would be cut off???) but it's possible that Israel would win, especially if the war is fought in Israel.
    Israel is kind of scary.

    The national sport of Israel is politics.

    They're good at it. But I'm glad the Democrats here are a lot harder on them than Republicans, who shill for them. But it's funny that even after the recent feud with them and their new home construction in disputed territory and the white house not supporting it, a majority of Israelis have a favorable view of Obama.

    Yeah, if that's the question.... no, they'd be squashed.

    Really? No - there's no country on the planet that could prove to be a formidable opponent for the United States, in a nothing-to-lose military campaign. Maybe China, but they don't have the technology or military organization yet.

    The U.S. could kill every living thing on the planet.

    That's true. But there are a few tag teams that could pose a threat.

    China + Russia maybe. They were doing war games together recently.

    A China + Russia + Europe triple threat might be able to.

    There are only like 6 million people in Israel, and the U.S. would immediately have several Arab/Persian countries on as allies (even if we didn't want them). It would be a slaughter.
