    In my opinion that ranking is obsolete.


    in my opinion i would say Europe is already a nation due to common currency and common defence industry.


    So i would say
    1-USA (largest military budget)
    2-Europe (France, England, Germany, Italy and Spain plus minor countries , Second largest military budget and two nuclear powers )
    3-Russia (largest nuclear stockpile)
    4-China (third largest military budget)
    5-India (nuclear power first largest military importer)
    6-Israel (nuclear power)
    7-Pakistan (nuclear power)
    8-Japan
    9-Brazil
    10-Ukraine

    I would like to put Japan on the 5th and UK at somewhere close to Argentina, no more than that :wave:

    in fact, there would be two categories, one of the top four and the second category with the rest as its looks funny to see the top four with the rest....

    the main report of this ranking is as below, in terms of the points they scored to, in form of "PwrIndx", where '0'/'zero' refers to complete control on the world. and here few senior members would be agree with me that US had score around 0.11 by sometime 2005 while its around 0.25, so steep decline in just 6-7 years :coffee:

    Incorrect, and I hope it never will be correct. Nation needs more than just "common currency", and one or two international corporations plus few cooperative projects hardly make for a "common defense industry".

    I would like to ignore this list and all similar such lists.

    There's more to military strength than a personnel and vehicle count.
