I've always wondered.
Without using and any sort of nuclear weapons, who do you think would win?

In my opinion, Britain would still have a good chance. I think that's pretty good good considering how much more people the US have than the UK.

Don't leave any comments saying that it won't happen or anything. I know, I'm just wondering if it did.
Repent, the end is near!

The US has greater military power. It'd go on for some time, but eventually they'd win.

I doubt the USA would ever find any reason to attack the United Kingdom.
But if they did they'd use them tax bought tanks to destroy us.

Fear me, for I am cheese.

The USA has more soldiers, more territory, and more gear. The UK can still call on the Commonwealth for assistance, but it'd likely end in their defeat and occupation. That being said, the UK and USA benefit more from being allies. The UK receives the manpower of the United States, while the USA receives the extra trade and the defense of having the UK and most of the EU guarding them from the East.

I'd say America would ultimately come out on top.

If the Commonwealth was called in, I'd say it would serve only as a temporary minor distraction.

So many things to take into account.
If you really think about it, Britain do have a good chance of winning.

America would have to attack from Aircraft Carriers and try to keep the Royal Navy, airforce and nuclear subs from destroying their carriers. Britain's nuclear subs are the most advanced in the world and would probably pick off Americas carriers from miles away.
Also, much of Americas Military's arms actually come from Britain as Britain is the worlds largest Military Arms exporters.

History has proven that a bigger army doesn't mean it's always better.


America, in my opinion, would be unable to take over Britain and at the same time Britain would be unable to take over America. There would be no victor.

There's never a victor in a war, only a survivor. Not to mention the civilian riots on both ends.

I'm pretty sure the survivor would be the victor.

The UK is highly vulnerable due to two reasons:

1. England will require a large amount of nukes to take out vulnerable parts of USA, while the USA could take out the UK defences with one bomb.

2. America has a MASSIVE amount of weaponry and factories, and can create 1 tank every 20 seconds. (or is that Russia?)

But, of course, the war WILL last a long time, but the UK will then finally run out of money, materials and men.

The UK always pretends to be powerful, but falls to its knees and starts kissing the USA's boots when its around. (This is very nice to know for people who LIVE in the UK...)

No. War has no victor. All the participants will come off terribly destroyed, with their cities devastated and their population suffering thousands of deaths. Even those who "win".

The UK would be wiped off the map.

Kinda like a rat dog fighting a full grown man. The rat dog might get lucky and sink its teeth once, but its in for a beating.

Our military is basically all our country has going for it.

Maybe that's why we can't get our fingers out of wars that have nothing to do with us.

Are you serious... The UK is way more powerful than "a rat dog" in comparation to the USA.
