America versus the world is preposterous. If Europe came together to essentially work as a single nation militarily(not unbelievable under such a situation, since they're already well down that path economically) it wouldn't take that long for them to build up a force to rival the United States(again, as their economic union already does). Sure France would surrender to the U.S. about twelve minutes after war was declared, but combining the technological/financial resources of the U.K., Germany, Italy, etc. would be quite a sight to behold. Imagine what could be done if they geared all those resources towards military in unison... the only chance the U.S. would stand would be to take them out quickly so they don't get the chance to switch their resources over to military. Figure Russia(I mean they alone were a match for the U.S. in the USSR days... sure they're weaker now, but they aren't THAT dilapidated) and China into the picture, and you have one royal ass-whoopin' in store for the United States.

At the very least, any person in check with reality would realize that there aren't enough Americans to keep the entire rest of the world in submission. Eventually forces would become spread too thin and the U.S. would be pushed back under a BEST case scenario. I mean it's not like citizens of other countries would just say "aw shucks, looks like I'm an American now"; the citizens of the conquered nations would fight back hard and often(again, except for France, who won't even have Charles de Gaulle to save them at least a little face this time).

the UN is the epitome of government inefficiency. the talk and talk and do nothing to solve problems. no compromise is made and talking only gets you so far before action is needed. if we had to go there way the middle east would be a parking lot before anything was done

Badfish, first of all the UN is not a government, its constituted in a total different way.
Second you have to remember that international right is, in essence, not coercive.

Any time the US has been attacked by other countries on its own soil, the American people have been behind the ensuing war effort. If the people of the rest of the world feel the need to attack the people of the US, then I see no reason why the people of the US would not defend themselves and retaliate.

"Oh really, what's the UN going to do? Pass a resolution saying that we should stop? LOL. Oh wait, they may try to get the french to attack us with their weak navy. Oh I know maybe they'll have saddam attack us with his superior air force. Or maybe they'll try to kill us with boredom by introducing the koffi anan channel. All Koffi anan all the time."

And maybe Russia should attack us with its thousands of nuclear weapons? You seem to think that the USA is invincible, a few hundred ICBM's targeted at our cities would prove you wrong.

y is everybody saying that France's army is worth crap? it has the third largest quantity of nuclear missisles in store after Russia and America. I'm not french but ppl have been brought the idea out of nowhere that french country is a bunch of wussies... The only reason they dont like war is because of their history marked with depression and hunger with war... (do I sound like a political nerd? if yes say "i".
