Has incredible beliefs in God who's their amazing weapon.

Philippines encountered much stronger country but we are still in stand...

It has the bravest military even though it has small army. And Philippines join the Allies in Korean war. And it's the most bravest country to join. With only 20, 000 soldiers. And it beated North Koreans and its soldiers has 100, 000 and Philippines has 45 casualties and the North Koreans has 30, 000 How. Strong is that?

83 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's army is strong once a true leader can lead them to victory. They take no risks and if they do, they think wisely before acting. There are powerful tigers in every single individual.

HA HA HA... That's a joke, right? Please say that's a joke... - Piderman

Glorious nation of republic of Ireland has 2 boats and a spitfire. Our dear leader and former kindergarden teacher Edna Kenny will guide us to absolute victory, unless it's a big war (then we'll be neutral) and all our soldiers will sue if the guns shoot loudly.

America will literally (no offense) out number you guys in almost no time.

88 South Africa South Africa South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is the southernmost sovereign state in Africa. It is bounded on the south by 2,798 kilometers of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans, on the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana more.

Thanks to many rights in South Africa, our soldiers go bars getting drunk in uniforms that shows no discipline at all. They too fat as well, lack of training. Too much corruption as well in the army, to be promoted/ transferred you must sleep with your senior/
generals. Also thanks too our president who is thinking with his feet & corrupt as hell, the entire country is corrupt because it starts from the president so people consider it as a correct thing. I wouldn't mind having a white president again, as long people will have jobs and no corruption & crime. I believe things would be better for my country & the military would improve!

The worst run military in the world...

It is growing most powerful in Africa.

92 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.
