The Top Ten

1 India 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.

All those Chinese dudes are living with those false myths that they can beat India. And China doesn't even have a real army its armed forces are only protectors of the communist party not the Chinese people. It's a fact wikipedia that

India is the best you dumbs! Have you seen the growth rate of India?

Growth rate doesn't measure power. Power means influence over other nations. India's not that powerful. And this is coming from a Punjabi. - rishal21

India is said to be superpower people at school say that there weak but the sad truth they can't except that India has much power to destroy the world

We love india and most powerful in the world.

It was established in 1949. Its capital is Beijing. The other major cities are Hong Kong and Shanghai. Chinese (Mandarin) is the only more.

China should be first. They are very powerful. Best economy in all Asia and second best in the world.

Actually I'm a Filipino and Philippines isn't really powerful but we're still trying to develop it!

Anyways, for me China should be number 1. They have the biggest population in the whole world!

That's all what I have to say but just because I voted China it doesn't mean I like them.

Don't even think that India is non developed countries. I think your country should be on the last place on this list. You country is cruel and so your country getting powerful remember that

For a man of east Asia the consequnse is incredible china Japan and South Korean should put aside the divergence to demonstrate that east Asia is the most advanced region in Asia

8 Japan Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean . It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest . more.

No doubt, China is the first but after China Japan has the third largest economy in the World. Yen is one of the most important currencies which has huge impact to the economy. The export tons of goods everyday, to make our lives better; cars, electronics, robots, etc..

It has the second best economy this comes from a American I know they are a country of great people with good technology advancements but there are a little bit of flaws

This country is definitely a force to be reckoned with. They had a strong lineage of ruthless people. They are more crazy than some people think.

We are indians and our best friend is japan! I love japan!

Should be in the top 5 Asian countries

Korea is on 11th place world strongest country, and also getting stronger, many people say China is getting bigger but so as Korea is so I am voting for South Korea!

South Korea is and remains an economic and military powerhouse in the Asian world. Japan got the better of them only and believe that history will not be repeated.

One of the strongest countries in the world

13 Philippines Philippines more.

Philippines has experienced of being colonized by 3 countries, liked Spain, Japan and USA but it was end into close ties friend and allies, through their aggression, Filipinos learned on how to become tough, indeed our government are trying to purchase some sort of high power military equipment's to modernized our country although with the helps of some good allies countries, it will be the first step and to become one of a powerful country in the future, if we go back last 3 decades ago, may be now Philippines is one among of 5 powerful countries with the leadership of Marcos.

Many countries tried to invade Philippines from the past, Philippines may be colonized by other countries but before that happened, filipinos give them a very bitter fight...

Philippines may lack in high tech things but the people here are strong, brave and one of the most in demand around the world in terms of professionals and manpower...

Here in the Philippines (before those foreign men colonized us), we are so much generous, no colonial/crab mentality, no lazy people and here's a surprising thing! There are no thieves way back then in the time of our Ancestors. Philippines is packed with nature! And that's why the other countries want our lands! I find it relaxing here in the Philippines, you can communicate with everybody because every person here in the Philippines (9/10) are very approachable! I don't care if the other countries are powerful, they just wanted to become powerful because they love to dominate! Here in the Philippines, we just wanted to have a peaceful life :)

14 Indonesia Indonesia Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia. Ruled by the Dutch for over 300 years, the country gained independence in 1945 . Jakarta is the capital city, located in the island of Java . Major languages are Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian), Sundanese and Minangkabau more.

Indonesia have a greatest elite troops. and 4th biggest population have big economy the strongest people Indonesia might be the have the many strongest people I think top five Asia

Rich natural resources, big population, wide area (land and Sea) and good ratio economic then I believe when indonesia have a good leader then he would become a strong nation

Indonesia had a magical army, we call by Jin.

Indonesia is definitely one of the strongest nations out there. Though, it does lack so much in terms of weaponry, considering that they are old and we need to get new ones. But in terms of the strength and power of the army itself, we should be proud of our military force.

According to the Global Firepower list, Indonesia ranks 14th out of 126 countries in the list, making Indonesia the strongest South East Asian nation. And that itself is quite an achievement. And Indonesia has recently won 1st place at the AASAM shooting competition in Australia back in May. Beating countries that are considered to have a stronger military, such as the UK, and the US and many more.

By those examples, we can all conclude that Indonesia is in no way, shape, or form, inferior to other countries in military. We may lack in terms of weaponry and technology, but when it comes to the strength of our brave soldiers, we should be very proud to have such amazing men and women to serve for our ...more
