  • Here are some more countries besides the US that would be impossible to invade!

  • First, Australia!

  • Thousands of miles from most of the world's powers in the southern hemisphere, it would

  • get advance warning of any attack.

  • And 70% of the country's land area is the Outback, a massive, inhospitable desert with

  • no plants or animals.

  • Any invader would be at a disadvantage in a large, hostile terrain that the locals know

  • inside and out.

  • .

  • Geography is also an advantage for this next country.

  • Bhutan is a tiny nation with an army of only 7000 and very little hardware.

  • So why have none of the powerful countries nearby invaded?

  • Simple - it's surrounded on all sides by the Himalayas.

  • Any invading nation would find themselves battling altitude sickness and exhaustion

  • before they entered the borders.

  • Mountains help this next nation - but they have some other tricks.

  • Iran is frequently in conflict with neighbors and world powers, but it avoids being invaded.

  • Not only is it ringed by mountain ranges, but its government has constructed countless

  • hidden mountain bunkers where spies wait and watch - letting the government know any invasion

  • is coming.

  • And its 500,000-man, 1658-tank army is waiting for anyone who tries.

Here are some more countries besides the US that would be impossible to invade!
