What is stopping China from invading the west coast of the U.S. and Russia invading with them through Alaska. North korea and russia attacking the east corcingthe U.S to fight a two front war. What is stopping this?

The fact that it takes time to muster your forces and we'd have advance warning. Russia might be able to invade Alaska, but China would have to cross too much open territory to get to California. Satellites and military intelligence are a thing you know.

Nukes.

The fact that the US has overwhelming naval superiority.

The fact that the US has overwhelming military superiority in general.
>>
>>28489006
Mostly, nukes.

Even then, they don't have the strategic mobility. Massing that kind of invasion would take them fucking forever.
>>
>>28489016
first reply is always the best reply
>>
But even if it would take them a long time to set such an attack in place china hasnthe biggest military in the world. Couldn't they just overtake us with sheer numbers?

No. For one, the slow going means they'd get invaded first.

For two, sheer numbers of bodies have never been less important for war. Weaponry is too lethal.

What everyone already said, plus logistics. Say an infantryman needs 10 kilos of supplies per day. That includes food, water, ammunition, replacement parts, average artillery expended in support, and fuel. You have a division of between 10,000 and 20,000 men. That's around 150 tons of cargo per day, per division.

Say, between them, they throw 100 divisions at the US. Never mind they don't have that number available on the TOE. That would mean they would need, to feed their million to two million troops, you'd need between 10 and 20 kilotons of supplies, per day. On top of that, you need to carry fuel for tanks and APCs, ordinance for heavy weapons, and engineering equipment. The only way you're getting that through is by sea.

Now, freighters can carry an ungodly amount of cargo. A single large container ship has a maximum cargo capacity of between 100 and 200 kilotons, assuming its packed to the brim and all its containers are filled with dense materials. A better assumption would be between 75 and 100 kilotons, which should mean two ships ought to be able to maintain operations for a week. But container ships are big and slow and easy targets and the US has a sub fleet with over 50 active attack subs. And contrary to any propaganda you might hear, they blow China and Russia's stealth tech out of the water. Literally. So they would need to split the cargo into multiple freighters, and add an escort. Then expect at least a few losses each trip. At the same time, the USN, which has more ships than the rest of the world combined, is launching punitive strikes against the Chinese and Russian ports and other shipping as well as hitting any convoys they can.

The whole thing adds up to the Chinks and Russkies running through their entire merchant marine in a month or two, then their entire army withering on the vine.

How about because we are China's best customer?
How about because we still have the most advanced Navy in the world, with our biggest and baddest fleet stacked up in the Pacific?
How about because we have the most advanced air force that will dominate in air superiority?
How about because of the sheer amount of nukes and subs we have, ready to go at a moments notice?
How about because of the National Guard?
How about because we have the most advanced and largest satellite/drone system in the world?
How about because people still have guns, and you can bet your ass they'd use it against an opposing force?
There would be literally no point. This isn't the cold war. Russia, China and Russia aren't in some Warsaw Pact to destroy capitalist pig, and we don't want to fight China.

2. We're one of the most heavily armed states in the country, much class 3.

3. The White Nationalists/militias out here are REALLY armed to the teeth, (or so I have read).


You know, it's pretty sad when I'm more worried about the chinks killing and eating my cats, than I am them raping my girlfriend.

China and Russia are part of the nuclear family too. I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter if your rifle has a fresh coat of CLP or if your pappy taught you how to live off the land.

The reason they don't invade is because it's easier just to purchase whatever they want. If they had the will to they could just crash the economy, force the majority of wherever into debt, then foreclosure. Then they just buy up as many resources or land or politicians as they need to do whatever they please. For example: If China wants coal then they'll just make sure that the mines keep producing, and that no one makes a law to shut the mines down. Why send 100,000 troops when 100,000 dollars works just as well?

Seriously though, I think the world would try to keep us from getting overly invested in the war effort by avoiding conflict with our forces because of our history with nukes and war (RIP those slang eyed bastards in japan). I think pretty much since the US has decided to be its own nation (i.e. Revolutionary war) that we time and time again have proven not only our own independent resourcefulness but also constantly showing up as wild cards... Especially once the french armada joined up near the end of the war to help us out.

And again with the war of 1812

It would make sense that every american on average would own a rifle and a handgun, statistically. Realistically, of course, that's a lie as a bunch of upper class americans don't own guns but hire private security, whereas a lot of low middle and middle class citizens own a fuckload of guns.

You actually think American civilians are going to try fighting back against invaders?

Most civilians would run away screaming and crying while blocking the military/police and demanding their own selfish protection. When 9/11 happened, most Americans ran away and hid. Only the trained went into the fight, and a bunch of those died because of incompetence and politics.

You must be one of those people who think civilians with guns can protect themselves from the military.

>>28495690
DC has some strict gun laws, though. One of the top 10 in the US.

I live in RI. I know VERY few people that own guns.
>dealers, rednecks, gun lovers, former military, etc.
Pretty much the same here
Compared to people without guns, there's a minuscule amount of them. All the gun owners are in the rural parts of the state, and the majority of the population lives in the ~3 cities we have. Kinda unbalanced

Starting a land war in America is more autistic and failure prone than a land war in Russia. from the west you have the rocky mountains and deserts, and in all the states out west there is high gun ownership which means it would be like hyper-vietnam for the chinese. An invasion from the east is just retarded because NATO is in the way, and again high gun ownership.

>>28495735
No, I'm one of the people who would volunteer to BECOME a trained professional

I mean, that's what the military is. Civilians who become soldiers

You must be one of those people who think no one joins the military...?

Most of the US's agricultural base is inland.They might do some damage to the west coast but I doubt they're just going to walk through the US to the breadbasket in a month. Though really even getting a foothold on the coasts with the aforementioned navy would be hell. Taking the US is a monumentally stupid idea. If the superpowers ever do fight beyond proxy wars its just going to be a nuclear slugging match. Nobody wants to actually have to put boots on the ground.
>>
>>28495790
I believe what I said.

Most Americans would do more harm than good.
>>
Why invade US when it's already destroying itself?
>>
Money and Nukes. Russia is somewhat independent financially(barely), but China's economy is almost defunct. That huge dive on Wall Street last week? China. Their failing economy is having massive repercussions across the planet. Attacking us would not only cause their economy to collapse because of nuclear hellfire, but would ruin them financially in the stock market.

Op here. So if the u.s. is so powerful then why do we take shit from anyone? Why don't we go take over fucking china and russia!? Merica!
>>
What's the point in even dropping a nuke? Then everyone else launches their nukes and h bombs and everything is fucked anyway so why do they even help?
>>
>>28489006
china could just send people over (getting citizenship) and start them shitting out (citizen) babies to be educated in the PRC & return. Simple demographics/invasion by stealth. See Europe for deets.
>>
>>28490604
China owes us for saving their asses in WW2.
>>
>>28496732
Not huge. It produces a lot of niche crops or off season fruits and veggies. Land is just too expensive down there and despite how fertile it is usually requires extensive irrigation. The midwest produces primarily staples such as wheat, corn, beans, and potatoes. They're the food crops and for sheer caloric production, that's where you look.
>>
>>28497209
Because it's more trouble than its worth. Just because you can easily repel an invasion doesn't mean you can launch one. The US would certainly win if on the defense, absent nuclear war. We'd probably get our asses kicked if we tried to invade China or Russia simply because we couldn't get enough supplies over there to fight with. Then you're talking about occupying one nation the size of the US and another twice as large with a net population about four and a half times larger than our. Fuck no. Not going to happen.
>>
>>28489139
And that is how we remodeled the flatirons into the worlds largest stone griddle.
>>
>>28497487
You're right, but would still be a big blow to lose that supply IMO
>>
Why would China or Russia want to anyway? Besides all the myriad practical problems, neither of them has all that much to win even if they ould pull it off flawlessly. Trying to keep and administers such conquests would cost them more than they'd gain.
>>
>What is stopping China from invading the west coast of the U.S. and Russia invading with them through Alaska

The fact that they would be destroyed, and China relies on us economically

China wouldn't survive the us however would recover.

Not in terms of mouths to feed. If we lost Imperial Valley, we'd probably have also lost the Bay Area, so net would probably be more food per capita. And even if they just did an herbicide run on the place, the Great Plains could easily handle feeding all the people. They just have to be happy with staple crops and fewer grapes, citrus fruits, and leafy greens.

It would be easier to shatter the US Navy in some bullshit conflict, and then fund/advise/equip guerrillas to splinter the US. Then keep the various splinter states in conflict with each other and wa la, the US is not going to interfere with your shit ever again.

Whats stopping America from invading Chinese islands in the south china sea?

Chinese naval superiority

Checkmate atheists.
>>
>>28489076
In a kinda-sorta way, this.

America has a HUGE gun culture that completely overwhelms the combined civilian gun market of Russia, China, Iraq, and the UK (kek).

You think fighting the Vietcong was difficult? Try doing it in a country where the most mundane of citizens has the absolute right to arm himself with lethal, near military-grade weaponry.

Try invading a country whose most innocent civilians can, and will, defend their homes violently, and with exhausting firepower.

That's 300 million barrels pointed up, down, left, right, fighting on their turf, on their terms, and highly encouraged by their domestic military branch.

A land war in the Americas is a land war in Asia; don't do it.
