No one has ever "beat" the US army. Retreat from Korea, Vietnam, and all the other so-called losses were political losses, not military ones. The Vietnamese couldn't force the US military out of their country. Neither can Iraqi insurgents or the Taliban. Politics forces the US military out of countries. I guarantee you if the US was a dictatorship interested in conquest the only way we would have retreated from Vietnam is if the country stopped being able to support macroscopic lifeforms. There has yet to be an army that could force the US military out of their country by rendering them physically unable to continue the fight in the way in a significant way like the defeats of WWII. So no, it has yet to be "beat".
Not to be 'that one guy', but Britain handed our asses to us on a silver platter back in 1812. My only comment is that China would collapse if they went to war with the US for the political reasons. Please resume your argument |D
