Thread: The Worlds Largest Army

  1. The Worlds Largest Army

    The World's Largest Army

    I bet you didnít know this. . .

    In WWII, Japan's highest-ranking naval officer was Isoruku Yamamoto. Although he was Japanese, and his loyalties were unquestionably with The Empire, he studied for many years in America, graduating from Harvard University. There is an oft-repeated (and sometimes disputed) quote attributed to him regarding the possibility of any nation taking a war to American soil:

    "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass."

    Here is why he was correct:

    America's Hunters. The World's Largest Army.

    The state of Wisconsin has gone an entire deer hunting season without someone getting killed. That's great, considering there were over 600,000 hunters that got permits this year.

    Allow me to restate that number: 600,000

    Over the last two months, the eighth largest army in the world - more men under arms than Iran; more than France and Germany combined - deployed to the woods of a single American state to keep the deer population under control.

    But that pales in comparison to the 750,000 who are in the woods of Pennsylvania this week. Michigan's 700,000 hunters have now returned home. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia, and it is literally the case that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.

    And that is just FOUR states.

    The total population of registered hunters in America today ranges from 23 million to 43.7 million individuals. (Based on annual data provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.) As long as the American Hunter retains his right to Bear Arms, America will forever be safe from foreign invasion of troops.

    Hunting Ė it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's a matter of National Security.

    ...not to mention the how-many-Millions of gun owners who happen to NOT be hunters, but add to the already formidable numbers considerably!!

    Add in another near half million in Ohio. Our hometown Wallyworld sold the 3rd highest amount of hunting licenses in 2008 in Ohio. 14,843 in a county that only has about 18,000 residents.

    the numbers are indeed awsome. but it takes a willingness and knowhow to use those guns. do remember size is not everything. the isreali army is hardly the largest in the world but they are among the most formidable. but the nimber of guns held by civilians in america should make agressors think twice. and that word agressor also applies to government here at home.

    Another thing that is not taken into acount is the fact that there is presently there is the largest number of living Combat Veterans ever in the history of the United States. I believe the estimated number at present is about 18 to 20 million.

    Hmmm...interesting. I like it!

  9. I like your thought process! (I've stated in these forums that I felt that Muslims would not (at present) riot in American streets as they do in France, Denmark, England, etc., primarily because we, the American Citizen (read: Militia) are armed to the teeth and won't take kindly to such an event).

    Q) What is the difference between a scoped hunting rifle and sniper/designated marksman rifle?

    A) The target
    Better to perish in the struggle for freedom than live to see defeat. There ARE things to be feared more than death. The fyrd is a Constitutional imperative.
