By size (number of troops), the top ten nations looks like this;

China
United States
India
Korea, North
Russia
Korea, South
Pakistan
Israel
Turkey
Iran

But anyone who has studied military history knows that the number of troops is a misleading measure. There are several factors that make the troops of one army more effective than others. The most obvious modifying factor is weapons and equipment (quantity and quality). Closely related to this are the “combat support” elements. The most important of these are logistics (being able to move troops, and their supplies, long distances and in a timely manner) and maintenance (keeping things in repair and running under all conditions.) Then there are the intangibles (like leadership, training and the most intangible item of all; military tradition.) Apply all of those to the raw number of troops and you get different number. This number is called "combat power."

Top Ten By Combat Power

United States
China
Israel
India
Russia
Korea, South
Korea, North
United Kingdom
Turkey

The most unusual entry here is Israel. But this is because Israel is one of the few nations to have a reserve army that can be mobilized for action more quickly than most countries can get their active duties into shape for combat. The mobilized Israeli armed forces number over half a million troops. In addition, the Israelis have world class equipment and weapons, as well as exceptional intangibles. The downsize of this is that mobilizing its armed forces also cripples the Israeli economy. Under these conditions, Israel must conduct a war that ends within a few months. After that, supplying the armed forces becomes difficult and actual combat power begins to decline.

The other nations in the top ten have large armed forces that are well equipped and trained, at least compared to most nations farther down on the list. Britain’s armed forces, like Israel’s, are better equipped, trained and more experienced than most. Turkey benefits from having a strong military tradition and excellent leadership at the small unit level, as well as good combat training.

Overall, the U.S. combat power is about three times that of second place China, and ten times that of tenth place Pakistan. But another modifying factor is how you plan to use that combat power. Wars are not fought in a vacuum, but in places that often inconvenient places for one side. Most armed forces are optimized for fighting on their own borders; for defending the homeland. Only the United States is capable of quickly moving lots of combat power to anywhere on the planet. Moreover, given a few months, the United States can put enough combat power just about anywhere, and become the major military force in that neighborhood. Countries like Britain and France can move some forces to just about anywhere on the planet. But no one can put forces anywhere quite like the United States.

For most nations with powerful armed forces, it's mainly a matter of having the most formidable military force in the neighborhood.

Do you have anything to back your stupid claim or is this all big talk from a Indian. Even if you have one of the top ten powerfull armies in the world you still aren't able to get Kashmir. Your an embarresment to the Top Ten. I know your making all this up, so get a life you Indians. Pakistan is still a threat to you and will always remain one.

In addition, USI can raise from Pakistan a reserve, fully trained and 24/7 ready to fight for fun 3,000,000 Afridi Force, and 7,000,000 other tribals from NWFP, fully self financed and armed with the best home made weapons from my tribal land, Dera Adam Khel. Similarly, all USI members can cummulatively contribute
from 30 to 40 million trained fighters.
The Afridi Tribal Lashkar that captured Srinagar in 1947-48 was led by my grand father "Sher Zaman (Lion of World) Afridi."
He was very angry when Pakistan Government agreed to the "Begging" of India to take the matter to the U.N. He thought that Kashmir was an integral part of Pakistan and we shall take it by force the Afridi way and keep it forever. He also believed that the U.N. will talk for years and years and finally it will deliver a dump. How perfect and precise was his evaluation of the U.N.
Let the Skunky Indian Monkeys do a lot talking-because that is what they
can do- but it comes to walking, and War India, Pakistan Army and all tribals and particularly Afridi are
praying that India crosses the LOC
once so that they "FINISH THE JOB
FOR GOOD."
Mr. Naga I have some very close family friends from Bangladesh and
sometimes they ask me if India attacks them, will Pakistan come to
protect Bangladesh. My reply was 100% yes on behalf of Pakistan and 1000% yes on behalf of Afridis who got addicted to fighting Brits RedCoats for 200 years and then Rag-Tag Indian Army and always want some action for fun and sports!!!!

Sher Dil Afridi the western powers have intenstionally kept the muslim peoples weak and divided so they can dominate the world. The muslim woman and children need a caliphate army to protect them.
Free Palestine, Free Iraq, Free Afghanistan Free Kashmir, Free Chechnya.

On youtube, I was watching Wagah border (Near Lahore/Pakistan, or Amritsar/India) where everyday at sundown, soldiers from both sides put on a show of foot-stamping- muscle flexing, and mock-fearsomeness, while patriotic crowds cheer each sides.

It is here I realised two important things.

a) Pakistan's soldiers looked more like the defenders of their ego, fragile image & false pride. In their black salwar like outfits they looked quite funny. The tribal outfit of these soldiers was very very unprofessional. The soldiers on this side looked unkempt due to their beards and everything about them looked all staged up to put up a face saving show. These guys seem to be living in medieval times. They were overdoing their bit. I was thinking that it is this army which has never allowed a democratic Government to finish their full term in power.

b) Indians on the other side looked like a professional army soldiers and defenders of their democratically written constitution. Soldiers looked at ease and very smartly dressed rightly fitting as the defenders of their democracy. Clean shaven, well ironed uniforms, even Sikh soldiers looked decent in their beards unlike their counterparts on the other side, were a hallmark of the Indian side. Even they had a very refined educated look on their faces. It looked like an Army befitting the image of a future superpower. It is this army which represents more than a billion people and a democratically elected Government.

It is from this point onwards, India has all good things to look forward for whereas Pakistan has more serious things to take care of than engaging in this kind of a road show at the Wagah border.

India - I salute you .
