    Germanys army is weak. France and the UK have the strongest current military power in Europe aside from Russia.

    Germany have the most military potential however, and clearly the biggest industry.
    Europe is illegally occupied by the US

    No they don't. The UK military is well better than that of Germany. Just because Germany can call up a lot of people doesn't mean that their military complex is better than the UK.

    That's all crap within Europe doing stupid crap. Overall for global concerns, out of Europe it's the UK which is listened to the most. It's almost always America and the UK. France can talk about crap with the EU, but worldwide no one cares about the EU. The biggest power out of Western Europe is the UK in terms of military and politics.

    That's because Europe is often though of in terms of East and West.

    The Kingdom of Liechtenstein

    when it was invaded by the Swiss in 2005, it defended by sheer awesomeness alone:

    Liechtenstein: no retaliation for Swiss 'invasion' | World news | guardian.co.uk
    According to the Swiss daily Blick, around 170 infantry soldiers from the famously neutral country wandered more than a mile across the unmarked border with the tiny principality.
    As well as the obligatory Swiss army knives, the troops were armed with assault rifles -
    Markus Amman, an interior ministry spokesman, said nobody in Liechtenstein had even noticed the soldiers.


    WOOO

    LOL....shows how much you know. Germany has one of the best army in the world and when compared to that of France. Germany would most likely win the war, however against UK. I'm not too sure. Germany has a very good arsenal. H&K guns are considered the best in the world. And the GSG9 is one of the best special forces in the world and it is being used in Afghanistan. France wouldn't stand a chance against the Germans.

    Russia doesn't have much strength these days, things need to change. I would consider it powerful just because of it's sheer size but with jets the distance becomes much shorter. Russia doesn't have the numbers of modern aircraft or ships to stand a chance against the UK. And in land, the Russians would easily be defeated by the Germans or UK, not the French though! And nukes don't do much good nowadays. No nation on this earth currently can use nukes and get away with it.

    Not really. The French are notorious for giving up. And the people in the UK would rather drink, and the Russians' would rather not try just pretend. That is why Germany is the strongest.
