23 Singapore Singapore Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, and often referred to as the Lion City, the Garden City, and the Red Dot, is a global city and sovereign state in Southeast Asia and the world's only island city-state.

The entire country is protected by its citizen soldiers... Every inch of it...

Even though we don't have most, we have the kindest and best

Singapore is so strong for a little country

Not that strong, that's why we make friends with other countries. Cause they will protect us. If no country is with us, we would be so weak. I think Russia, UK, China, 'Merica, India, Japan, South and North Korea can Stomp is like really hard.

28 Sweden Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. more.

Sweden has a military that is expertly trained, and is one of the worlds leading weapon manufacturers and creators. While the army is very small (CA 40 000) right now, it is expanding due to new actions from the Swedish army. So while I would not say top ten, at least top 25 or something like that.

Don't tell Sweden What to do, or we kick your butt

Biggest weaponmaker in the world

29 Afghanistan Afghanistan Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located within South Asia and Central Asia.

Our nick name is the graveyard of empires Greece, England, Russia, and so much more we have deserted and if we weren't at war we will be as powerful as Iran and more powerful then Pakistan. I can't wait for the war to be over and I know when it is over we will be a powerful counter

Afghanistan spend his all life in war but in 14 last years that is growing up so in my idea Afghanistan is the best

They have been fighting United States for year. They were responsible for 9/11 which made the world terrified of.

If the war come to an end Afghanistan have huge minerals deposit so it can improbe itself with in a year and they will show their spirit and talent to whole world

30 Bangladesh Bangladesh Bangladesh, on the northern coast of the Bay of Bengal, is surrounded by India, with a small common border with Myanmar in the southeast. The country is low-lying riverine land traversed by the many branches and tributaries of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers.

Bangladesh is a very powerful country despite its small area. Its navy is very powerful indeed and its army is always well equipped. That's how it even won its liberation. More importantly it also fought for its mother tongue.

Bangladesh army is number 1 in peacekeeping un missions. So, we deserve a more powerful country.

Bangladesh is very small country but it has a powerful military. They can face any kinds of war or enemy. During Bangladesh India border war was a an important example, where around 23 Indian security force had been died by BDR.

Bangladesh is 57% Strong

34 Thailand Thailand Thailand, officially the Kingdom of Thailand, formerly known as Siam, is a country at the centre of the Indochinese peninsula in Mainland Southeast Asia.

Thailand is more of a peaceful country than a fighting country not like USA and others. Thailand is more peaceful style country and has never fight other countries in the world yet. In World War ll, Japan invades Thailand and Thailand got bombed to smithereens. Thailand's soldiers and army is very weak at that point. So Thailand is more of a peaceful country than a powerful military country. But Thailand still follow American's lead and Thank you to American people and other countries for visiting Thailand. If you have been to Thailand, you can see streets full with shops and people buying thing and driving alone peacefully and again, Thank you American and other countries we will follow your lead and tried our best to follow your examples and we will use them wisely. Thank you Americans and other countries

38 Syria Syria

They might not be the most powerful in the world but they sure do deserve a say in the Middle East. This nation suffered 4 years of war with global funding and pressure to get it to buckle but it most certainly did not. This army is a derivative of the great Ummayad empire and that alone means a lot. President Bashar Al Assad had guided his army around thousands of terrorist militants and groups and is bit by bit, reducing their numbers. It is important to note that these terrorists are not of Syrian nationality but are from overseas nations and have come to shed the blood of the Syrian people. All hail the Syrian army and may it long remain powerful.

You don't get in A GLOBAL war for three years against some of the wealthiest and most powerful countries in the world without having the most badass army in the world, lead by President Dr. Bashar AL-Assad who could be a war criminal or a war hero but one thing is for sure that he is a war genius.

39 Portugal Portugal Portugal, officially the Portuguese Republic, is a country on the Iberian Peninsula, in Southwestern Europe.

It's not the best military but the country is safe

It is a peaceful country now a days

Do you want to know something? Did you know that Portugal acturally capurted Brazil and a part of Malaysia. You don't see its ture portential because its quited on wars. This country is really powerful
