>>>do not forget turkey the warrior.brazil,pakistan is not stronger than us.And india,china,england,france,germany can not defeat us by themself.they need help as they did in history.actually that wasn't enough we beat them.<<<

Yes, but so often Turkish soldiers have rolled triumphantly through London, Paris, Berlin, Beijing, and Delhi, right?

india was never asked any help from any other empires in ancient times we uses our own strength like fighting with alexander the great and one more thing he also get tired when he was fighting with us

Well lets look back... to the Korean War(the forgotten war) south korea was invaded by the north and could not even defend itself and over 90% of the country was took en and took the U.S and the U.N to save its but.
The only reason it has powerful tank is because the U.S is equipping South Korea with weapons and tech and another reason is because they are still at war people. =D

Turkey is a joke so there should never be on the list, lol.  They may become a world power because of their geopolitical position, possibly assuming as a buffer between the middle east and Europe, but their armed forces especially military will always be limited by many things including their culture. 
To the guy that talks about the US not fighting good at ground war, that is probably the most asinine statement i've ever heard.  We wiped out the largest ground force in the middle east twice, without any defeat or any major casualties.  As far as Vietnam we were never defeated in a significan battle and according to estimates we lost one soldier per 50-150 enemy soldiers.  Nobody with any intelligence can say that the US ground forces especially the infantry are second to anyone.

So what if the south koreans have better tanks. Thats only because the U.S equips them alll the time and they are only ready to go head to head with the north because they are still at war

In the Vietnam war alot of our soldiers were on drugs and often could not fight properly because of the addiction but our air power(Heavy Bombers) smashed their supply lines so bad that we had to give them time to rebuild. Then our F4 jets knocked their migs out of the sky mot of the time. then at the beginning U.S m16 jammed so much when they faced the enemy with ak47s.

We only lost the Vietnam war because the U.S citizens spoke out to the government to end the war

I would say if you look back to WWII you can see how these nations were in war. But the only difference is is Germany and Japan don't have the power like then. China with is fierce army like you say fell pretty much in one day by a small country like japan and Russia had a hard time with Germany. Germans took over most of Europe. With China they have a big army but that army has to have guts they show it with there own people but they don't have guns. I would say if they went face to face with a powerful army like the US has they would throw there weapons down and run. Between the US and Russia they don't want to fight because the Nucks. With that said the rest of the countries don't matter.
