The U.S. miliary spent about $700 billion in one year. That’s 12 times bigger than China’s defense budget and 47 times bitter than Israel’s and almost 73 times bigger than Iran’s.

Wow. I really feel safe now.

And so proud that the US of A is saving the whole world by starting wars and continuing wars and intervening everywhere. Wow. Gosh. (By the way, I’m being sarcastic, if you couldn’t guess.)

Thanks, Newsweek for the information.
