Legitimately, with little bias and only facts, if the U.S. and Israel teamed up, could they take the rest of the world (preferably no nukes but if this supposed war lasts long enough then Iâ€™m fine with them in the answer)?
War eventually boils donâ€™t to the economy which in turn becomes a mathematics game.
Both countries only have viable economies because they import raw materials from South America, Africa, and Asia.
Deny them these raw materials and their economy just crumbles. Even if, somehow, the US were to successfully invade either South America or Africa in a campaign of rapid dominance, the damage done to the mining facilities in those continents would still deny the US most of the natural resources in the foreseeable future.
A thoroughly destroyed mines take at least two years to start working again, by then the US economy is back to 1950s levels.
