We can see that the big spender is Saudi Arabia, spending 10.4% of their GDP in military spending. A GDP by the way that has absolutely no correlation with the number of people that live there as it is a function of the number of holes they open on their ground…

This is retarded. We can cut the defense budget in half and still be dominant. So much of it is bureaucratic inefficiency anyway.

Here’s a proposal: Amend the constitution so that our military spending can never be more than half of the total amount spent by all developed countries. Or how about finishing a war before starting another one!
