    International allies are a bit like Risk players. No matter who you think is a friend, in the end they are in the game for themselves.

    The only time we have true allies is in a time of war when countries tend to group up in an act of mutual defense and survival. After that it is every country for itself.

    lol no. You read it wrong. You're giving population numbers and thinking that it's the size of the military, but I can't understand how you'd make that mistake. That's like reading that Toyota makes 600 million dollars a year and thinking that that's the price of a Camry. You thought the idea that the US had 330ish million people in the military passed the smell test? How many people do you think are alive right now, 87 quadrillion?

    You are categorically and comprehensively incorrect. This may be the most brazen example of being wrong I've ever seen on this forum. You equated population figures with military personal. Just drop the mike and walk away for another day pal.

    1. Wiklipedia is not a viable source. Middle schoolers are taught this. Yet you are going to counter with wikipedia. Stunning. Hurry up and go quick review another source before that one bites you in the butt lol.

    2. I've studied history in college because at one time I was going to be a history teacher. Nothing I said about Stalingrad was wrong...at all. Again research would do you wonders. In fact I have quite a few books on the matter because that was one of my favorite battles of the Eastern front. Ironically your attempt to claim I don't know anything about the past just fell flat on it's face.

    3. You seem to fail and understanding military power. North Korea has a psychological hold over their people. They'll pose a threat for the same reason the Japanese did in WW2 and the same reason Iran poses a threat now. Numbers do matter and always have mattered. Viet Nam....you think those guerrillas we're better than the US forces? Nope....but they knew their land, they had their numbers, and they knew guerrilla tactics better. That's why the US lost Viet Nam. The US was better equipped, better trained, better moral....they lost. So no offense to your nation but I believe if the US left you....the North would BULLDOZE you...not invade...complete bull doze through your nation.

    God. If this was annihilation....then count me tickled. You guys are pussies.

    When there is a suitable reason for me to take you 3 seriously...let me know...because those "annihilation" we're as sad as they we're pathetic. Study, research, try harder, come back to me with a real challenge.
    That is entirely incorrect. Breathtakingly so.

    It was tough not to pick a muslim country in the above poll...so I went with South Korea...because they're the only east asian country to massively cut the foreskin of non consenting baby boys...that can't be trusted.
