    If we could only stop the flow of millions of dollars worth of illegal contraband maple syrup being smuggled over the border by the maple-traficantes, war could be averted.

    I cant imagine that the EU would amount to a major power ever, the EU hasnt any hard power and its not really been able to develop what amounts to soft power in the form of its economic, financier or diplomatic role playing.

    Other hostile nations, such as Russia, since the Cold War, have done an indirect service to the US by being the threat which will maintain special (albeit heavily one sided) relationships and alliances.

    Terrorism serves a similar purpose too presently, its strategically dumbassed for the political islamists to behave how they do because it makes for closer alliances with the US not weaker or more distant ones. That said people whose highest hopes are that they might perish in a battle arent thinking very strategically at all.

    The EU isnt even in that position, where they could simply withdraw support or protection and it could result in whoever they've distanced themselves from being invaded or harmed.
    All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.

    This is a really weird thread.

    As well as the other reasons why the US would win already cited...the West Coast certainly wouldn't stand a chance. Everyone would be too stoned on BC Bud to put up any kind of resistance.
