Ok this is my first time to post one of these on one of these forums and I hope I can bring some light to this argument. I?ve never really posted, I?m more of a reader but after watching how people reacted to the movie 300 my anger for stupidity started boiling and than I read this article and I couldn?t keep my tongue still.
So I?m going to give some information about myself because I believe in any argument you need to know who the person spouting all the facts or nonsense is. I hate people who just flame or try to use events in the past to lead the argument into a divided topic that will bring out the forum trolls.
I?m 24, a soon to be police officer, Greek-American meaning I was born here but I?m proud to be Greek, and have lived in the United States all my life, mostly in Houston, TX. I have a bachelors of Science from U of H. So now that you know a little about me and that I?m not some crazy person who just trying to flame about whose soccer team kicked whose let me give you some of my criticism across the board.
http://www.globalfirepower.com/ this website gives a fair estimate to the war power of many nations around the world.
So I put Greece vs Turkey lets see what happens.
OK hold on before you get all epeen on me and say omgs the checks are more on one side to the other. Because if we did that we are not being fair to the argument that the original question stated, who would win a war in the Balkans Greece or Turkey with out any support from any other nations. This also means that it?s a stand alone fight with what the nation has. It cannot buy anymore supplies nor gain anymore equipment (man power/vechiles/oil?etc)
Also lets not forget about this question was stated back about 2 years ago it seems so lets refresh the question.
Who would win a total all out war and it cannot buy anymore supplies nor gain anymore equipment (money/man power/vechiles/oil?etc) meaning also it has to self support it self from the day the war started as of today April 3 2008?
I put the chart below so you don?t have to do more than scroll around =D
bbl = Barrel of Oil (1 bbl = 42 US Gallons or 159 litres)Value of "0" or "NR" = Not Reported
