The military budget of the USA is beyond ridiculous.
Why do you hate freedom?
Smart arse lol

I heard once that the military spending of the USA is equal to the combined military spending for the next three highest spending countries (could be wrong though). Seriously, what do they need all that for? It's like they have a cannon to kill a fly, but they always want a bigger cannon anyway. What is it with the USA's obsession with guns?
Actually, the US military budget is equal to the military spending of the next eleven highest spending countries (China, Russia, UK, Japan, France, Saudia Arabia, India, Germany, Italy, Brazil, and South Korea), contributing 39% of the total global military expenditure:

The US military budget has almost three times the size of China's and Russia's military budget combined. (Which is why the U.S. has ten aircraft carriers, while China and Russia each have a single one).
