  • Brazil is a huge country and has the second-largest armed forces in the Americas only after the

  • United States, with 354,000 active-duty soldiers.

  • But the real secret weapon of Brazil is its geography - the massive Amazon rainforest,

  • full of dangerous wildlife and hazardous conditions that could hide Brazilian troops - and spell

  • the end for any invader.

  • But size isn't always necessary for a country to be impossible to invade.

  • A country smaller than New Jersey doesn't sound like a global military power, but that

  • hasn't stopped Israel.

  • It got invaded - including a war right after it was founded - but the invaders never stayed

  • around for long.

  • The Israeli Defense Forces are a powerhouse, with a universal draft and high-tech weaponry

  • - including nuclear - to repel any invaders from their tiny slice of land.

  • Sometimes, tough enemies create tough countries.

  • South Korea is always looking to their north - at their enemy North Korea.

  • That's led them to create one of the world's toughest militaries.

  • With over 3 million total soldiers, they're always on a war footing and man one side of

  • the demilitarized zone.

  • Their small size, like Israel, means they're vulnerable to an attack - but any invaders

  • will face troops ready for any enemy
