 Military   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
While "military" concerns all related armed forces, is has often been distinct from a militia or a levy, which are temporary forces—citizen soldiers with less training, who may be 'called up' from the population when a nation mobilizes for total war, or to defend against invasion.
Military "strength" is a term that describes a quantification or reference to a nation's standing military forces or the capacity for fulfillment of that military's role.
For example, the military strength of a given country could be interpreted as the number of individuals in its armed forces, the destructive potential of its arsenal, or both.
