    we also got this one computer controlled radar sensor guided vulcan cannon which fires a field of huge caliber projectiles to anything cruising at mach speed including individual missile projectiles.

    Yes, America can break stuff the best, ergo it's the best nation.

    There are papers on the basic conception of power by economic and realist perspectives you could navigate, I'm sure.

    Yes, because so far that is the measure still. Militaries and Economies.

    3 Chinese for every american, btw.

    I believe Germany and Japan have a good run at productivity per human.

    Actually, that's not the measuring stick. Quality of life, quality of healthcare, quality of education, lack of poverty, lack of social injustice, civil rights -- those are far better factors in determining greatness.

    It depends how you want to take that, I mean that in the context of modern immigration. Say, if the executive were to authorize several million illegal immigrants into legality ... the stereotype concerning their productivity stands. Im not sure, this is for debates sake. [I hold that negative immigration by amnesty is flawwed]. So thats a different rabbit hole.

    That, is an opinion. Reserved by the example of tiny lucky states to compare against. It isn't real.

    Too bad what? That you think Europe under Hitler was better than the USA or that you are ridiculing my assessment of my travels and knowledge in that, what?

    What you said doesn't make much sense... if any.

    Yes, because so far that is the measure still. Militaries and Economies.
    That is part of the measure. Quality of life. Standard of living. Religious and other freedoms. Friendliness. Infrastructure ratings. Education. Etc.

    Orion is a nuclear powered space craft design and not a nuclear weapon (missile).
