What ways to rate the armed forces, how can people think that judging the world's militaries on the size of the armed forces as acceptable? Strategy page seriously needs to change things.

But anyone who has studied military history knows that the number of troops is a misleading measure. There are several factors that make the troops of one army more effective than others. The most obvious modifying factor is weapons and equipment (quantity and quality). Closely related to this are the 揷ombat support?elements. The most important of these are logistics (being able to move troops, and their supplies, long distances and in a timely manner) and maintenance (keeping things in repair and running under all conditions.) Then there are the intangibles (like leadership, training and the most intangible item of all; military tradition.) Apply all of those to the raw number of troops and you get different number. This number is called "combat power."
The first list is about size, the scond ius about training, hardware, moral and so on....

The only reason you think that america is the most powerful is because your an american paitriot,

I mean think logicaly, america isn't a superpower as well.

If you face the facts and compare Russian techology and military power to USA's techology and military power you will see that america ain't so powerful after all.

And I thought that america is a democratic country.
How can america be a democratic country if you won't listen and respect other people's opinions?

You americans don't make any sence.
some news program made a servey and found out that most of the people living in europe want america to close thier military bases in europe and go back home to america.
what I mean is, that no body want's you anymore.

And you americans are cowards.
I will explane why:
for example when the 9/11 attack occured, I saw people that where like 5 km from the WTS runing around and screaming like they are right under the building that is going to colapse.
ofcorse the fire fighters where brave, but many of these fire fighters where from other countries.
another example is when there is no electrisity;
when that happens you americans start panicing like a nuclear war has just started. Here in Israel, it's part of every days life.

also if you compare an american soldier to a Russian soldier, you will see that the american soldier is fat compare to the Russian soldier.
that's why an american soldier doesn't stand a chance in a one on one battle, with a Russian or a German soldier.
