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.

I agree china cant attack us yet. But by 2015 I expect China to be able to take Taiwan if not sooner. After that it seems rather obvious Japan is next on their list.
china has given Taiwan an Ultimatum to turn control over or face being taken over. Taiwan must decide this by 2012 or they will be attacked, if Taiwan agrees they have a few more years before being taken much like what took place with Hong Kong.

The UK and France could do far more damage to the US than China.
Wouldn't fancy the pay back though
