    Number of Soldiers is 2,255,000 with an additional 375,520,000 males age 15-49 which could be used in an assault. This is a very large army compared to the rest of the world. 250,000 personnel total Army Size Could easily reach 500million with the recruitment of the entire able bodied population being drafted for war.

    Air Force
    400,000 personnel


    I put a bunch of the most recent facts together here in my blog including the 2010 report issued to congress.

    I wonder if they really have the economic and logistical ability to be able to support an army that large, though? If they can't get food to them, then it's going to be a very short assault.


    Some clocks are only right twice a day, but they are still right when they are right.

    I think that a sign the country is comfortable with it's position and military might is a noticeable lack of gargantuan military parades of the sort China puts on. Impressive, but I'd rather spend the four weeks needed to prepare to look pretty training to fight.
