The Top Ten

1
India
The fact that India never attacks anyone and it has successfully defended all its enemies takes India to the top
US has the tech but is too scared to actually use it and they have unnecessary, meaningless, pointless and completely wasteful wars. They think they are the liberators but they aren't.

India on the other hand is in the UN's list of militaries to help out at crisis. America is selling us the military tech too so it is pointless arguing.

2United States of America
Having spent 26 years in the Air Force and still working for the Air Force as a civilian, I can tell you that the United States is the world leader in logistics. Most wars are lost due to poor logistics. If you can't maintain a long supply line and get your troops where they need to be, your war effort will lose steam and you'll eventually lose. This happened to Napoleon, Santa Ana, Hitler and even Japan. The Romans even had to avoid over extending themselves. During the second Gulf War the US military had to halt it's move into Iraq to allow the supply line to catch up. Army's with poor logistics have to win wars quickly, or they risk losing. The United States knows this and fights long, extended wars to wear out the opponent. Unless, of course, we hit with a knock out punch during a police action. The point is, if your have poor logistics, everything else is academic.
Right off, after my twenty-one years of being alive here, having had a brother in the air force for three years, I am indeed a American who knows what he's talking about. The United States of America was founded in the past, like many other countries of today, due to one idea: Freedom. During this day and age, I do believe that the leaders/ways of the USA have somewhat struggled, tripped along with forgotten what exactly that word means. Nowadays, even in the USA's past, America has become a bit questionable. Is it truly a liberator like formerly thought... or is it more of a bully as thought now? I, personally, do not blame my fellow citizens here in the US for our failing image towards the rest of the world. And, truly, what country is perfect in image? Honestly, be you Russian, American, Chinese, Indian or whatnot, we're all human and we can't be that different. When it comes down to it, our leaders are responsible for our image and, hmf, when did that suddenly not matter? When did gaining the most weapons and being at the top of everything become so very important?

Anyway, I may be hating on my own country but I'm still a patriot and wouldn't want to live anywhere else then between the Canadians and Mexicans here. The United States of America may be a bit tipsy these days but it's still unquestionably one of the greatest powers in the world; economically, militarily, spiritually and so on. We Americans just have to quit all of this bull crap of running around, sticking our noses in everyone's business and having our resources scattered across the world. If we're really the supposed liberators of the world, if we really are leaders, then we need to set a better example, cease all actions, deflate our egos, pull back to recover our image and wait to pull off another few victories like we did in WWI + WWII. Because, honestly, when we do that... America will once again become the indomitable powerhouse it was mere decades back. Of course, it's a powerhouse now. Just imagine it though with its head straight on its shoulders for a change. Scary, right?
Funny how your history can start in the late 1940s and America is responsible for every event in the world! This nation had what size of a military in 1940?

As for the top comment for the USA concerning logistics, absolutely correct! Always said the great genius of the American military and it's greatest contribution to winning both world wars can be laid at the feet of our supply system! Without it, Germany wins! Even more amazing is the global reach it had and still was able to supply it's so called allies at the same time! Sure the commie Russians died in the multiple millions and bore the greatest personal hardships but they would have had a much worse time of it without the huge contribution our nation made. Not saying they were not important but saying all gad a part! The reverse can be said about Japan! Without the Russian attacks in Asia, I think history has shown the Japanese would have continued the fight even with our few nukes! The prospect of facing absolute destruction from all directions was the deciding factor! Now if Hitler was not such an idiot and had he not made numerous huge mistakes on so many levels, Germany May have won the war before we ever got started and then it would have been Us alone against them, at this point, it would have been difficult to say the least!

Today, I feel that with our new ever increasing progressive liberal controlled economy and our changing reliance away from community and family to the state and a military governed more by career bureaucracies and individuals creating more every day, that this great American advantage is being lost fast!
[Newest]I respect USA. I seriously do. But the misconception that it has that it's the best military is nothing but irrelevant fact. What's the point of being in security council as veto and still indulge in pointless wars.

India has the best military. Believe it or not!

3Russian Federation
Napoleon and Hitler each tried to hurt Russia, and the Russians were outnumbered both times, but Russia always won. Part of the Russian anthem is:"Our loyalty to the Fatherland gives us strength. ". All Russians are brothers, they will do anything to protect each other and Mother Russia.
Are you kidding me 5th! They have have enough nuclear power to make the world other than Russia a nuclear waste land. They have the toughest and the best training in the world. Also they have the spetznaz. The most powerful elite forces in the world. Russian soldiers are taught to be immune to pain. They are the best army in the world!
Plus they are plain awesome.
What is all of this crap about putting down the USA during WWII, Russia? Listen, I'm willing to admit that Russia was indeed a world power during that desperate day and age but seriously... while American soldiers were battering down the walls of Germany and Italy, while they were helping all of allied Europe get back on its feet, Russia was getting smashed to pieces. Then, after having destroyed so much of the Russian forces who were still riding horses against tanks at times, Germany had to withdraw from the north due to both the cold of winter as well as advancing allied forces reinforced by America.

Seriously, I hold no hard feelings towards the people of the world. I in fact respect how there are so many growing super powers out there today. You guys are indeed strong and awesome. When the Reapers from Mass Effect come to earth, they're going to find that you're indeed stronger than strong in body, mind, soul. Still, don't put down America's decisions of WWII. Not when you guys lost the most men, had to continually retreat further north and were only saved by winter's wrath at that time and the USA almost single handedly got allied Europe back into the fight.

4China
They are vy strict and focus a lot on military power. That's is what makes a powerful country or military!
They are more advance in technologies
China is the all latest technology use and they have powerful troops and globally very good position. And there economy also world biggest within 3 year. So they will world number 1 power full country.
[Newest]China was bullied a lot in the past. They are biding their time and will show their strength when the moment comes.

5United Kingdom
The United Kingdom is still Technically the strongest country in the world. It is the biggest investor in each of the top five economically performing countries in the world (even more so than China), thus making it the second richest country in the world behind the US, is home to the world's financial trading center (London) of which it trades trillions in sterling world wide every day on the London Stock Exchange, and has the best regarded political relations world wide. The UK is also home to BAE Systems; The most advanced global company engaged in the development, delivery, and support of defense, security, and aerospace (Air, Sea, and Land) world wide.
The UK may not match other militaries in terms of size, but it can't anyway. Britain cannot support a military the same size as Russias or Chinas. What Britain can do is build the most technologically advanced fleet or warships in the world (Type 45 destroyer and Astute-Class submarine) and do what Britain has always done best, do what it can with what it has got, that's what has always given Britain the advantage.
Incredibly advanced, great military discipline. Probably the best navy in the world, at least second.

6Germany
Germany has the third largest economy in the world, they have created some of the greatest weapons in history and of the modern world, like the StG44, which was copied by the Russians to make the AK47, and is the basis by which all assault rifles are created. Check the facts Germany almost always had the latest and greatest weapons of the time, After WW1 Germany was a third world country with only 100,000 soldiers, with in 18 years Germany was a global superpower with the largest military in the world, Germany has the potential to become modern superpower... And they have tanks that can run on cooking oil and biodiesel
I think the German army is understimated. They don't own the highest amount of troops, neither do they have nuclear power. But as I heard they are able to create nuclear weapons within minutes. I mean, they are the country which led to the invention of the atomic bomb. And even if they are selling thir high developed tanks and so on to other states, doesn't mean they have already achieved new weapons, none of their allies knows about. I think the German perfectionism makes them one of most feared enemy you could have. Remember WWII, if the war would have lasted longer without the US signing a war declaration, with it's nearly infinite amount of resources in relativity to Germany, the country could have fought all enemies off, just by more advanced techniques.
Not first place but still to mention.
They have a great moral and they are important for the NATO.
[Newest]Germany should be at least in 4th or 5th


7Pakistan
Islamic Republic of Pakistan - very good military training and professionalism, the largest Muslim military power in the world with over 600,000 active troops and the 6th/7th largest in the world, very large and powerful army and air force decent navy, a very experienced army with it's wars with neighbouring India, the only Muslim nuclear power, strong alliances with Turkey and the rest of Middle East and the Muslim world especially with the Arab states, China, France and some NATO/EU/Europe, and US, largest contributor to UN peacekeeping missions with over 10,000 soldiers, second largest Muslim country and one of the largest in the world in population with 180 million people, etc.
Pakistan army is the best army in the world and have best missile system in the world. Army is professional strong and having up to date weapons and equipped with nuclear weapon.

Israel has the QUALITY military force, its soldiers are very well-trained and experienced too, it has a good air force too, and its special forces is BADASS! It is a small country, and all of its Islamic neighbors never defeated Israel in war, Israel remained as a sovereign state when it was created after the WWII. עם ישראל � - י
If Israel was as big as USA, it would have been the strongest nation in the world; the nation can defeat way more powerful and bigger nations (as Israel proved in the six days war).
Other than the United States it has the most skilled fighters in the world like these guys are beast in everything they do

Until today, France is the first world superpower in Africa. The USA believes on France to protect Africa against the terrorism, Africa believes on France to train them, Europe believes on France to protect Europe conjointly with UK. They are also one of the most present on the world with a large number of bases in oceans and Africa.
Incredibly underrated they have a great navy and air force.

France has 300 nuclear weapons and the French Foreign Legion, arguably the most elite force on earth. They are also one of the few nations with an aircraft carrier.

10Japan
Japan.. Must lead.. Or maybe not cause Japan is peaceful already I'm not saying that they are tired already but they have lowest crime in the world and also I believe that they have strong military in the world than Korea.. Korea not not strong look they have been proven that Japan defeated Korea and China many times so Korea. You lose so shut your low brains their
Is this a joke? I think Japan is better than Germany because Japan has more powerful navy and air power and technologies
It very powerful country.

11South Korea
South Korea is strong but still needs many more military areas for improvement. And it has managed to defeat some countries, but still relies on some help. I do agree that North Korea is strong but North Korea is very aggressive, I'm surprised it's in the UN. I think that Korea should improve but still is a respectably strong country. Nobody can ignore that. South Korea should keep growing!
It has many high tech weapons.
Its much more successful then North Korea

12Turkey
Well with over 1 million military personnel available at any moment this is a large army not the largest but if you have a million soldiers against a nation with 2 million what if they are not all brave and loyal fighters numbers do not always make a difference. Well planned tactics always overall numbers this has been proven in many historic battles. However like only a few nations army service is compulsory in Turkey so once you hit 17/ 18 and not studying your in. if you study then you have to go back and do the service so imagine what numbers could be each year go by. Turkish economy us self sustained. They don't like too much help from other nations. With all the Middle East problems why nobody done anything to Turkey even though Turkey supplied aid in all the wars around it ( no military support). Turkey is placed in the best location for a Middle East war and all western and European nations will and have required Turkish and Cypriot resources to assist with there campaigns. Turkey do the best kebabs, people and soldiers need food after all we might suck at football but we ended up 3rd in a world cup in the past decade if you look at the list in the past 10 years what great nations don't make it that far. ( but they are pretty bad now didn't think about the future of football when they was up) Overall every nation has capabilities weakness and advantages. If how far they will go to use it and the relationships between nations. NATO overalls and that's is probably close to a billion military personnel should it need it. Who wants to go war with that.
Turkey has one of the most powerful army in the world and they're continued of Ottoman Empire. As you know, Ottoman Empire was the owner of the world formerly. Because of it, Turkey's soldiers are so experienced and well trained. Also they have special team called Marron Berets. They're best special team (you can Google it) in the world. Also Turkey so well advanced and civilize country. They've own weapons and planes etc.
Turkey is actually the 6th most powerful country in the world, the listing on other websites says so

[Newest]This just has to be the most powerful one

14Australia
Australia may be underrated but it is powerful. It has high quite high tech weapons and vehicles. I personally believe it has pretty well trained personnel (Even though that is what everybody says) and has the minerals and wealth to whip up powerful weapons in no time. (One of the largest exporters or gold, uranium, coal and iron)
Even though Indonesia has a huge population compared to Australia, it doesn't Mean Australia wouldn't stand a chance, it's not all about better weapons or more troops, it's also about tactics, Australia stays below the radar of most countries and has ended up with only one major attack. If the world went to war, they would stand a chance because firstly they are quite remote, secondly they have good allies in helpful places and thirdly Australia doesn't just run into battle if something doesn't look right.
Australia wins, flat out in any non-nuclear confrontation, too large to hold, our people are too tough and know the land too well, nowhere nearby to hold a supply chain from without invading another nation and having to fight two wars at once so supply lines stretched out and the RAN's subs are second to none, regularly wiping out Yank subs in wargames, any enemy that came here would be stretched thin and picked apart piecemeal.
[Newest]Australia is powerful, even without it's allies. It should be between 10th and 12th I think. Australia is very good on defense. It also has powerful technology and a huge defense budget.

Come on! These guys are very good at tatics, have very great tanks and are on the final step to nuclear power. They have a butload of naval ships, like ten times the size of Australia's navy. They also have a lot of really well made vechies tanks and weapons. Finally, there training is very strict, which makes there army awesome. PLEASE PUT THEM ON THE TOP TEN

Saudi airforce is one of the best in the world with well trained workforce

19North Korea
North Korea may not be the strongest current military but I think that if North Korea were to enter a war, they could have no problem drafting every single able bodied citizen into the military. The North Koreans are so brainwashed that they would do ANYTHING for their country, literally. North Korea already abuses human rights to the max, so they wouldn't have any problem forcing all of their people into the military. If they were to draft all of their able bodied people (which is very well possible), it would create a North Korean military of 20,000,000+
They had war to US in 50s. They have armistice in war to US first. They have neutron bomb and Cobalt bomb, hydrogen bomb. And they have soldiers much than Russia.
Large Stockpiles of chemical weapons, cannons and missiles.
Even Nuclear weapons.
Not sure but they probably have the icbms, emps and ability to shoot down a satellite with the laser.

42United Arab Emirates
I feel that Dubai is a strong country because of the Arab rulers. It can be shown by uniformity and smooth functioning of the country.

43Lebanon
The Lebanese Resistance Movement is the most powerful guerrilla group in the world today. They are responsible for the liberation of South Lebanon in 2000, and for successfully defending Lebanon in 2006 claiming a victory against the IDF (one of the most well equipped military forces). The Lebanese Army have some really tough guys enrolled but the equipment is somewhat outdated. All in all, Lebanon given it's size and history, possesses really well trained soldiers.

44Tanzania
Tanzania has the Best Army characterized with Peace keeping in other Nations. We served the World unpeacxefull countries like Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan, Eritrea, Congo DRC and Liberia.

Tanzania is also known for its Intelligent workforce since its Independence and has had helping other Nations to gain their Independence since then.

These among others are South Africa, Zambia, Mozambique, and Liberia
Tanzanian soldiers are brave strong experienced and always ready to bring peace where there is wars and suffering I think the strength of an army or millitary is not measured by the number of jet fighters or tanks in Tanzania we believe humanity bring about understanding not wars

Kenya has among the best teams of elite forces in Africa and a dominant force over its immediate neighbors in the region
One of the best in Africa

Principality of Sealand for many years has stood as the testament of bravery and fortitude to the entire world. During 1978 a group of German's attempted to storm the sealand.
