Preparing for WAR!!!!!

The Michigan Army is light years ahead of the rest of you punks. We've been in a depression for a decade already and we've been a little bored. So we started a huge army.
LOL.....I've read before that behind Pennsylvania and Texas, MI has the 3rd highest amount of liscensed hunters, so the weapons and talent are definitely there. Throw in the brutal winters and it would be like Germany vs. Stalingrad part II.

I certainley couldn't see Michigan ever being conquered.....if all else fails we could retreat to the UP, blow up the Mackinaw Bridge and just have to deal with the western front.

Delaware. Dupont is there--chemical weapons, don'tcha know. They'd poison all those gun-totin, red state hayseeds before they knew what hit 'em

Yeah, but you'd have to take and hold those areas...and Anchorage is not geographically small by any means.

The population would have the means to leave city limits, re-establish and then retake.

US vs. Taliban
Nazi-Germ vs. Russia
Napol-France vs. Russia

They could also probably ask Russia for help. And they'd probably get it.

Hawaii or Rhode Island. Nobody would bother to invade/attack them, instead concentrating on bigger threats, until all the other states had blown each other up.

My money is on Hawaii, unless California developed a Surfer's Militia that paid 420 for every kill you make.

North Dakota because nobody will even be interested in attacking it. It would just sit by and watch everybody kill each other in other states.

Hmm that did enter my mind so I almost took them out of my "weakest states" list.

A similar thread like this recently was closed pretty quickly. Reasons: Negative, too vague, not specific, and not relevant. So why does this thread continue to exist?

All 3 have good economies that would give them an advantage over most other states.
California is filled with gay's and sissy's...your arguement is invalid. jk (no hate)
