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.

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

Most aircraft and aircraft carriers plus the most mobilized military in the world. Navy can be anywhere the Air force has the air advantage, and the Army will be in any place in the world in just a few hours. The marines well trained and very well equipped plus the Marines are with the Navy

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?

A nation which can fight Pakistan can take on the world. Indeed, even the United States is an ally... It dare not go against it.

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?

If they are in the war, they will probably join the allies. We are helping them. Why would any one fight us for helping them? I mean, are missionaries are making baskets of food and clothes to send over there. - Alpha101

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.

The only reason North Korea still exists is because they can level Seoul in seconds. However, if they did, every world power will break down the gates to the Kim family palace... - DieGedankenSindFrei

22 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.
23 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.
