I am just wondering. Is there any country out there that could invade us. like tomorrow could china just decide to invade the United States of America?
Is there anywhere I can go on the internet to see a listing of the power of each country. I would like to know how many transport ships China has. Does china have a carrier.
Its just that I always here on the news about how a country is just now starting to develop a technology that we americans have had for years.

Go to Free Republic's home page and visit The China Report link; that gives you a thorough history of China's build up until 1999, when it was released (I know, I helped write it).
Many of the documents used in the report were found in the archives of the Federation of American Scientists (www.fas.org). While FAS is typically considered a left-leaning organization, they capture and archive a lot of the reports provided to Congress from the Congressional Research Service (CRS) and General Accounting Office (GAO). They also retain reports on International Nuclear threat assessments.
Start there. Get back to me if you need more info.

China does have quite a few nuclear missiles (some of them mobiles) that can reach cities on our coasts and into our northwest and is developing some that will reach further.
Also, follow the links in the little red boxes on Jeff Head's page. He's done a some research on the PLA Navy.

Google.cn is the Chinese version of their "we are evil" search engine. As chicom callaborators, they may have the skinny. Just go to Mountainview and knock.

Nope, no one has the ability to invade us... and hold there ground... yet. China actually doesn't even have enough logistics to invade Taiwan but that soon will change. If we continue down the road of denial I would say by 2040 or 2050 china could potentially invade us if they chose but that is a big if and a lot of variables I cant factor in.
However, no one may be able to invade us yet, there are countries that could obliterate us (though we would follow suit upon them) in thirty minutes time and those nations being Russia and China to a lesser extent.

"Is there any country out there that could invade us."
Military isn't the only way to take a country.
I believe the most common way to take a country is to flood the country with people from the opposing country.

I think the more plausible scenario is if for some reason the Chinese economy collapses. With the possibility of mass rioting and internal unrest what better way to distract the masses with an invasion of Taiwan. Of course the Communist party of China would promote it as "unifying a renegade province".

china just decide to invade the United States of America?
They already have.
They invaded our federal government a long time ago, and especially own Senator Feinstein and the Clintons.
They have access to the port of long beach, control both sides of the panama canal, and are positioning themselves in the caribbean and South America virtually surrounding the US.
They are building their navy, but their merchant marine is vastly formidable and much larger than ours, including their ship building capabilities.
When Hu Jintao came to visit last month, his first stop was with our 'captains of industry' not our lowly president.

No. And we can't just up and invade China. However, China could invade Taiwan and dare us to intervene. With Bush in office? We would intervene. With a RAT in office? Taiwan would lose.
China could also move into Mongolia, North Korea or any country formerly occupied by the Soviet Union and there wouldn't be a thing militarily that could be done, outside of some whining from the UN.

It is not possible. Even invading Taiwan is dubious.
