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 British Empire in 1776 with the Declaration of Independence. They won their independence in 1783 with the Treaty of Paris. Its capital, Washington D.C. (District of Columbia) is defined by imposing neoclassical monuments and buildings including the iconic ones that house the federal government's 3 branches: the Capitol, White House and Supreme Court. Though it has no official language, English and ...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.

USA will win because they have the biggest budget for their Molloy wry and stuff, and China doesn't pose a threat as you'd think becaude it's 1,500$ to equip a Chinese soldier (and half goes to his/hers rifle) and it takes more then ten times that amount to equip an American soldier. Plus, most of the soldiers China says they are training are college students doing mandatory military training, and they usually don't end up joining the army. Plus, there military actually belongs to the communist party of China, not China itself, for some odd reason, and there isn't any joint operations between China's army and Navy (at least no proof other then China saying there is and pictures of generals and admirals standing together, although I highly doubt that.)

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

The U.S. has enough Nuclear Bombs to wipe out all of Russia or any other country that we oppose. Although Russia can do the same, the U.S. has more manpower available, more people fit to serve, more people reaching military age, more reserves, more active personnel, more air-vehicals, more water vehicles, and almost leading in land vehicles. Any war 1v1 or 1v2 with any countries would likely be an American victory.

2 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. It is the world's most populous country, with a population of more than 1.4 billion. China spans five geographical time zones and borders 14 countries, the second most of any country in the world after Russia. Covering an area of approximately 9.6 million square kilometers (3,700,000 sq mi), it is the world's third or fourth largest country. The country consists of 23 provinces, five autonomous regions, four municipalities, and two Special Administrative Regions (Hong Kong and Macau). The national capital is Beijing, and the most populous city and financial center is Shanghai. Chinese (Mandarin) is the only official ...read more.

China will probably ally themselves with Russia in world war three. And I think China can win. Because China won in the Korean war when China only had numbers of people. And basically no weapons. The Chinese only had a very few guns during the first time of the war. The other guns were captured after they hit back the United States. Now we also have bombs and planes and ships and whatnot. So probably we can win. But who knows, maybe we will ally with the United States because world war three will be against. Something, and maybe China and the United States will both stand against them. .

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.

3 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. The most spoken languages are Hindi and English, but there are 22 official Indian languages.

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.

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.

We have several war and have even won all of them except 1962 war due to mistake to Jawarlal nehru but this time we have modi. World know what modi can do.

4 Russia Russia, or the Russian Federation (RF), is a transcontinental country spanning Eastern Europe and Northern Asia.

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.

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
