"War does not determine who is right - only who is left." - Bertrand Russell
Since 2006 GlobalFirepower has provided its unique analytical display of data concerning over 130 modern military powers. Our ranking is based on each nation's potential (conventional) war-making capability across land, sea and air. The results incorporate values related to resources, finances and geography with over 50 different factors ultimately making up the final annual rankings. The results provide an interesting look into an increasingly volatile global landscape where war seems an inevitability.
