Top 10 Countries Most Likely to Win WWIII

The Top Ten

1 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

USA - economy would be like the great depression as the USA would spend all its money on war efforts - size of military; army, air force, navy equipment and build all factories needed to produce the war machine. Not that we don't have enough already. This event has already been planned and prepared, tie that to experience in war and no one could beat us on their best day. We may struggle in the beginning because of all the different war fronts but we will out fight, overpower, and push back all enemies until they lose or surrender one or two at a time. Wake up people! USA #1.

The United States currently has the most Powerful military on the planet, and is on pace to stay that way for many years to come. We have the infrastructure and industrial base to support a big war. We have 10 of the largest aircraft carriers, more than all other counties combined. Even if China has more manpower. The United States have a more technological superior military. Not to mention better allies, and if it comes down to it. The second largest nuclear arsenal

Well I'm speaking from a German point of view but the US is the only nation capable of mobilizing its Military in less than 5 minutes, It has a first strike advantage and numerous allies, BY FAR MOST ADVANCED WARFARE TACTICS! It is the only nation that can launch on ICBM that can separate other Nukes within it, so a Russian or Chinese nuke will destroy one city while US and allies can destroy thousands with few ICBMS, It's the 3rd most populous country and has the most well trained forces in the world..

China may be catching up, but the US is way more powerful than China. If the US does go into WWIII, It can simply use the many bases worldwide to deploy troops. Not to mention the Militaristic experience it has gained in recent years. The US is basically UNBEATABLE.

2 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi. Some other major cities are Mumbai, Chennai, and Ahemdabad. ...read more.

Indi has a big population and if they all do one punch they can kill hard and china has many old people who are weak but India has young and strong people

Secrets are always secrets in this country. Everyone knows that even Indians comprise of almost 50 % of Indians. Allt the top level officials are Indians. And most of the military equipments were found by Indians in their country. So does any one doubt India's capabilities even now?

India would definitely be the winner because
It has got the worlds 2nd largest army, 5th largest air force and 6th largest air force.
During times of war, as far as I know
RussiaN'S would definitely help the Indian'S so will many other countries.

INDIA will win.I love India, I am a Bengali. India is one of the fastest growing countries in the world, and though India doesn't have a juggernaut army, EACH INDIAN can tackle 100 soldiers alone, because they don't use money or new generation weapons to show off. India has an invincible army, full of willpower, the quest for knowledge, the growing intelligent generation, and to mention of course,the Indian nuclear weapons. INDIANS DON'T SHOW THEIR ARMY'S POWER THROUGH MOVIES, BUT THROUGH THEIR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION towards Mother India. I have faith that someday, India will become the strongest military force, if she struggles hard. And to the postscript, India had been dominated till 1947, yet we achieved freedom, and WITHIN FEW YEARS, MADE OUR PROUD ARMY.So think for once, a country that just achieved freedom from the imperialist country, has grown to such extent, then what will be the progress after some more years, huh?

3 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, ...read more.

I think it depends on when this war takes place, but even in the near future, probably China because of population/army size and modern weaponary. Stalin won against Germany (the turning point of WW2) despite huge losses, so China will win, even against US with a much higher casualty. US couldn't even 'win' in the Korean war when China was much weaker and only had numbers. Let's not also forget what some insane nationalistic Asians can do all for 'pride'.

Economy is still rising, Millions of soldiers, Great Weapons, and Great Technology. Oh by the way I'm Australian, but I think China will destroy USA, Russia, United Kingdom, Japan, France, Germany, India, Turkey and North & South Korea.

China would most likely ally itself with Russia, Iran, Palestine, Venezuela, Brazil, Kazakhstan, Zimbabwe, Congo, Iraq, Syria, South Korea, Israel, Turkey and Lybia. Which gives them advantage.

Who knows what China has in their home? Never underestimate a country if you are uncertain about it's capabilities. China could be much more capable than we think...

4 Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

Russia I think would win the USA can be destroyed in seconds by Russia and I am American to I don't think we are allies with them but if USA, Russia and Asia are teamed up I think they can blow up the whole world in seconds. USA or Russia would win if they are teamed up I will be glad.

The second strongest nation, but with ally like china and many west allies like turkey, india could probably join to russian side of conflict.
They US as and opponent has too many enemies across the world.

And Russia can survive thanks to size. If you nuke US and RU at the same size area the RU is still with 50% of area.

Mother Russia will win the war. We will liberate all countries that are enslaved and defeat bloody capitalism. FOR MOTHER Russia!

They will be with China (Russian technology + Chinese money = Megapower), and can nuke everyone.
They will also be nuked, but have more land.

5 Israel The State of Israel is a country in the Middle East and the only country with a Jewish majority in the world. Israel is a small country bordering Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt and its official languages are Hebrew and Arabic.

They have an okay military.

It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. ...read more.

This is actually not true. Though they have a "big" army, most of their submarines and other military materials are very old, beat up, and really bad. Not a huge threat.

They have declared they have nukes.

8 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 ...read more.

We have our strong allies must we join NATO

They need to improve their military.

If someone attacks australia then the world food trade will fall down.Cause major powers like Russia,China,even India.And with the allied power of US,UK they surely will win.They're NATO is very good.They can judge an attack in hours bfore the invasion is done and they have the money to buy foreign spies.Then they will the war easily.There stays India China and Russia They don't have the guts to attack Australia.Australia also have some missiles what can turn countries like Iran into smitherens.

With the help of its Allies in the Commonwealth and USA :-)

13 Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

Mexico would lose WW3

One of the major powers of the second world war, and one of the major powers in Europe

They should have learned their lesson 74 years ago!

Hmmm I think they have learnt there lesson

15 Switzerland Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a federal republic in Europe. It consists of 26 cantons, and the city of Bern is the seat of the federal authorities. ...read more.

Switzerland would be the true winner for not getting involved.

16 Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy in Northern Europe whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

Norway would sittin there and not getting involved by the war

Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat) are ...read more.

Pakistan is likely to win any war especially with India because it spends more than half of its budget on military and is the first and only Islamic country to develop nuclear weapons. Further it is allied with China and she (China) has pledged full support to Pakistan in any war. Moreover all Islamic countries support her (Pakistan).

Only because India is enemy
Pakistan is the best Islamic country

This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, ...read more.

Canada will most likely enter the war quite late in, so they won't have as many casualties and wasted resources.

I think Canada will win because I bet we wont enter the war until late so we can preserve our weapons and have less young men and women being killled

25 Venezuela Venezuela, officially the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, is a federal republic located on the northern coast of South America.

This is a tough choice between Venezuela and Norway. Anyway, Imagine the following scenario: The USA, Russia, China, Iran, most of the Middle East, Japan, The UK, most of western Europe, and Korea all fight and kill each other. In doing so, most of the oil supplies of the Arabian countries get destroyed or consumed. This leaves Venezuela and Norway, who are both clever enough to not get involved in the fighting, sitting on something like 40% of the worlds remaining oil reserves each, leaving all the 'superpowers' no choice but to kiss their asses to get it.

The UK might be alright with North Sea oil from Scotland, but countries like the US, Japan, China etc produce a fraction of what they consume.
