"War does not determine who is right - only who is left." - Bertrand Russell

Since 2006 GlobalFirepower (GFP) has provided a unique analytical display of data concerning 137 modern military powers. The GFP ranking is based on each nation's potential war-making capability across land, sea and air fought with conventional weapons. The results incorporate values related to resources, finances, and geography with over 55 different factors ultimately making up the final list. The results provide an interesting glimpse into an increasingly volatile global landscape where war seems all but an inevitability.
