The U.S. has the greatest and most powerful military the world has ever seen! Bar none... When the U.S. and Britian are fighting side by side; there is no country or combination of countries that could conquer this combination of powers.

Conquering and occupying a country with only 400 of your soldiers dead after 6 months, is in fact an unparallelled success in the history of warfare.

Ya know .. I find these top ten or top twenty five lists kind of stupid. Unless youre an Intell anylist or have access to ALL the data available form within each country there is no way for any of us to make any sort of qualified answer. Its all speculation and just pulling some wild guess out of your ass. Having said that ..... I will agree with the US/UK coalition being almost undefeatable. Being (as you even said) "harrassed" by lightly armed resistance in no way whatsoever constitues weakness or lack of prowess by any means. Exactly how does that disqualify the US from being the best? The present US military has done more in 6 months than anything the world has ever seen. As far as the US fighting like chickens ... youve evidently never been on the recieving end of US military power.

The Israelis fight like tigers, but India would crush em in a protracted war. Then again, how would they ever get at each other? If India and Israel were neighbours, and they went at it, Israel would stand no chance imo.

I'm with ChdNorm this whole list is rather pointless. First we has the top 10, now the top 25. What's next the top 50, 100, 500.? The rate we're going we might as well all head out to the parking lot, whip em out and get a ruler guys, because this is what this is turning into. You can't have a best list (and I wonder why bother) without setting some sort of parameters. What exactly are we looking at totla standing forces? number of divisons, air wings whatever? Throw weights? logistics? battle records? type of engagements? percentage of military versus total population and or GNP? Without any of that all you get is a cyber pissing contest with everyone listing their own country and a couple of other favourites and then trying to defend their own choices and attack others.
