A lot of us wouldn't just have to witness it, but participate. I'd imagine there'd be a draft if things get out of hand like that.

There's a gun for every man, woman, and child and DC is known as a violent city.

If foreigners invaded they'd get gunned at by gang bangers and policemen alike.

Think about how many violent idiots are just waiting on an excuse to use their firearm to legally kill or hurt someone...

An invasion of the USA would get record ratings. Think of the entertainment value. Lets do this.

There is no way another country could get close enough to mount an attack and invade the US. They would be wiped out as soon as they mobilized their navy in our waters.

We spend more on our military than like the next 30 countries combined. Traditional armies are not a threat to us. Only terrorism (no real enemy) is.

What if China had been secretly funding an operation that placed as many soldiers as possible (without being exposed) in the United States the past 10 years.

So all these Chinese folks walking around in civilian clothes can one day travel to same city and take it over with automatic weapons when the time is right.

I bet they could of found a way to get over 10,000 of their troops in the USA by now... and that's my lowest estimate... because in reality they could over 50,000... but that would be risky.

They all just meet up in Washington DC and the capitals of a few key states... kidnap a few key celebrities... hold them as hostage.

America would find it's self in a horrible situation if it decided to try and attack anyone.

Even if the president and other top ranking politicians are murdered, the US military is always ready to be a temporary government until order is restored. Plus US has strong allies.

Would last about a week, and then everyone of them would be killed.

America will not fall because someone else conquers us. Our downfall will be from our own stupid ****ing mistakes. China will become the lone super power one day. It's not a matter of if; it's a matter of when.

what are you talking about? where are they going to get that money from? if china attacked america then the debt owed to them would be lost and they would be several hundred billion dollars out of pocket for the invasion.
