    I know how we don't like "vs" threads here on this forum. But the rule never said anything about ranking them....HA!

    Anyways, here's some fodder for Valentine's day.

    (Channeling my inner fanboism)

    Yes, true but it's not even that close.

    We have the F-22 and that plane can supercruise and has Aim-X missiles so it will rape any SU or Migs on the planet.

    We also have many, many top of the line surface-and below surface-ships which are second to none.

    Not to mention super aircraft carriers the can launch a bazillion Hornets and Lightenings in the near future.

    And our soldiers are top notch...some of the best in the world.

    I as an American can sleep well knowing that I am perfectly safe.

    About the only thing I worry about are beer dropping Gunnies.and Hockey Stick wielding Canadian colonels.

    USA...USA...USA..USA...USA...

    Heh, Yemen could kick our arse apparently. It's a wonder Fiji hasn't invaded.

    Hey those Yemeni ballistic missile crews manage to kill hundreds of Saudi troops every couple weeks per launch, P4P best ballistic missile crews in history (or the Saudis live in really nice camps), guess you guys should have kept those A-4s...

    I was wondering about that myself, you guys seemed to be ranked too low.

    What would Fiji invade with? Dugout canoes?

    They did. They just didn't bring any guns with them.
