Which country has had the greatest mlitary? For example Great Britain..most powerful maritime force for 200 years, were pioneers of military technology, rules one third of the worlds people, and have been involved in the most wars in military history.

This thread is full of "My Country has the best military in the world. I don't know Jack shit about history but I'll just keep arguing that my country is better just because I was born there"

Ontopic: The Mongolian Empire was the largest and most contagious so I'm going to vote them. They along with the Roman Empire influenced so much more than any other.

The word you are looking for is contiguous. Don't deride the intelligence of other users if you can't even get that right.

EDIT: I assume that's what you meant anyway

Just a piece of useful info:
The last thread that gave Americans a chance to boast about their military didn't go over so well.

The Vikings, in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Iceland, circa Viking Age.

Just for heritage

But seriously, you don't **** with Vikings. Just the sheer brutality of what pure human instinct for survival can produce and drive people to do. Not to mention the conquering aspects were quite swift, during its time, and the weaponry and longships.

Funny thing is the Irish had viking too. But I agree with Vikings. A massive guy with a huge beard waving an axe screaming would make most people run like hell in the opposite direction

A post without arrogance is one that means very little . It's the truth. I hate neutral opinions.

Uhhh... America is definitely up there, if not the greatest of all time. Today, no country currently comes close to the U.S. military strength, power, breadth, or spending. The U.S. military is a ****ing monster.

You think American soldiers are the most technically proficient or you think they have the greatest technology? Surely you mean the latter?

Did they? Well, it probably was from the assimilation of the Norsemen and its culture into Ireland, when they invaded.

EDIT: I edited my original post, by the way, with more explanation of my chosen nation(s). Though come to think of it, Vikings were more just merchants, pirates, and pioneers than a military. But damn, were they a good at what they did.

USA can nuke anyone. If anyone argues, they'll nuke you.

Also wouldn't wanna **** with Russia, they're pretty badass.

Well, if you mean that towards the SEALs, they weren't around until the Vietnam War, I believe.

But no, we really do have disciplined, well trained men and women.

Ahhhh, you forgot about that guy on the tugboat with a shotgun (which may or may not be loaded, but that's for the navies of the world to find out)

Edit: regarding the guy above being from Edmonton, the West Edmonton Mall has more submarines in total than the Canadian navy.

WW2 had an attainable objective. Just because our reasons are ridiculous and unattainable doesn't mean our military is weak. The strongest man in the world still can't lift a cruise ship
