Yes, I'm new. I'm pretty damn sure that the US would dominate this war. Like previously stated, they are miles ahead of everyone else in terms of military technology. Infact, the US alone has enough nuclear weapons to annhillate the worlds population...73 times over. The only possible way that the fact that "no body likes them" could get in the way, is if every single nation that hates the US were to combine forces and attack no one BUT the US...and still they'd have to try very very hard. The US is also allied with Isreal, who is also somewhat of a force. I'm sure they have other allies as well...
Realistically, who really cares, its a hypothetically situation to begin with.

France and the UK also are even with US on level of technology, the world outnumbers the US by far in manpower, and in weapon numbers, the world also has the edge. Also, everyone combined can spend more than the US, and when buying/constructing french and british goods (or goods based off them), they can quickly bring in a supperior number of weapons of an equal level of technology.
you sure Russia has more nukes than the US? oh well, IF everyone were to team up on the US, what else does the nation have to lose?...other than the lives of its people of course, but since when has that ever stopped them from attacking anything. the moment it becomes US vs. EVERYONE. the US has no body, theyll go emo, and destroy everything, including itself. its not a matter of who has more nukes, its a matter of whose willing to use them first. the US has already used two of them in war, whose to say they wont use some more.
I'm fairly sure. If the US were teamed up on by everyone else, they would still have much to lose by killing everyone, the main one being destroying all of modern civilization in an act of revenge, knowing that they would die anyways. Just because you have nothing to lose by killing every living person on the planet doesn't mean you should. The US may have used two in a war, but those two ended the war, before anyone else had a chance to develop nuclear weapons. The nations of the world are all well aware that their enemies have nuclear capabilities, and will not likely use theirs, in an attempt to avoid nuclear war and save themselves. They aren't stupid, they know that in a nuclear war no side is significantly likely to come out unscared enough to be declared a "winner". The only way I can see a nuclear war happening is if some religious extremist group or nation in the middle east acquires nuclear technology, and uses it on Israel. Then Israel would attack, perhaps with the help of the US, unfortunetly, with nuclear weapons, and other nations would likely become involved.
