Are they that anyomore powerful than a country like Russia?If America wanted to could it destroy the whole world without America being destroyed much itself? Say hypothetically there was a world war were it was America v the WHOLE world- could America still win it?

In studies on the matter it's been estimated that once nuclear weapons are taken out of the picture. If every army on earth attacked the US the US would still win.

Why is that? Do they just have that many weapons or something? Because if it was the world v US then US would obviously be vastly outnumbered.

Very powerful. The UK could take on almost any country at war apart from the US, China or Russia and win. But we'd be finished in a couple of days against the US.

The smallest power I'd estimate you'd need to take down the US would be Russia, UK, Israel and China. And that would be a close run thing. Then remember a significant amount of the civilian population are armed as well so there would be a guerilla war.
