Attack on Titan

So i've been thinking, and i realize that the Titan apocalypse in Shingeki no Kyojin is one of the few apocalypses i would actually be scared of. It's also one of the few that America might have trouble stopping if not using nuclear weapons. So i make this thread, in hopes that i'm wrong and that if this for some odd reason ever happened, America has a way to survive

Details

10 4 meter titans, 5 10 meter titans, and 3 15 meter titans have appeared sporadically in 3 different cities(for a total of 54 Titans)

The President hears about the titans 5 minutes after they appear, and starts to make moves

After 30 minutes, waves of titans start coming in from the west shore, the east shore, and the Mexican border (of all different sizes and shapes)

After an 1 hour, The President also receives word of what the Titans weaknesses is.

America is not allowed to use nukes(that'd be pretty suicidal in any case)

Both the colossus Titan and the armored Titan can make appearances at any time, but only once. They both have an hour to do damage(Unless America finds a way to kill them before they run out of time)

Will America survive, or will this be the beginning of the end to all humanity.

While we lack the 3D maneuver gear, America has a ton if options to deal with the Titans, microwave cannons, MOAB bombs and helicopters that can fire hot lead which will cut deeper than any sword can. Many options to take out the Titans. However If the titans hit our central defenses who knows what surprises await them there

Helicopters loaded with 50 cal Gatling Guns should beat the Titans.
The only issue would be if the Titan's killed all the air support before the weakness was found.

Titans get stomped. I mean really, we have plenty of aerial options to deal with these things...

Yup,

Chaos will ensue across the world, as the titans migrate. GG world.

America would DEMOLISH the titans. People don't quite realize how crazy our tech is. A standard high caliber round could take the titans down, let alone things like tanks and artillery. Missile's plus artillery murder the titans, game over. The US demolishes the titans with massive technological superiority. This wouldn't even be as hard as a zombie apocalypse.

People seem to have forgotten...prior to the events of the show, they did beat America, and every other country in the world.

This is not true. We don't know what universe Titan is supposed to be set in, but it clearly isn't the modern world. The human forces are using muskets and cannons & have no access to or knowledge of aircraft. There is no way that humanity would regress that far technologically.

A few SWAT snipers would be able to deal with the initial Titan attacks fairly easily, once they get info. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZdmc-iRARs Sniper bullets designed to punch through brick walls and kill an armored target behind them is going to go right through a Titan's neck easy.

Any Titan that doesn't spawn in a city is going to get roflestomped by Helicopters armed with missiles (If you can blow the entire top of a titan then that counts as hitting it's weak point as well.) & high powered machine guns (50 Rounds per second, at least one of them is going to hit the neck).

We might lose some people to the Titan's initial surprise attack, but really not that many. It isn't going to take more than a few minutes to figure out that you have to do massive damage to a Titan to kill it & pretty much any city in the world has the kind of equipment to make that happen.

This!!!!!!!! we would dominate especially after knowing their weaknesses. Amour and Colossal titan would be a bit of trouble for us but we could take them plus they only are around for 1 hour anyways.

Don't see why America won't just roll in tanks, since WW2 they haven't stop making them & or arm soldiers with Portable Anti-Tank Weapons

Seriously, we have some weapons that everyday citizens don't even know about.

LOL, YOU MADE IT YOO EASY! Add Annie, 30 beast titans, 85 abnormal titans( 70 being crawlers) unlimited time on all special titans and add 10 titans per half an hour at a spawn point that takes America a month (or more) to find. And you can't use any allies.
