guns and money

The United States outspends every other country on defense by $509 billion. Which is a pretty awesome statistic.

Except it's not the most relevant one: France is really part of the EU, so all EU defense spending should be lumped together. The US is at about double EU defense spending, which is still absurd but not quite as absurd.

(via Bitch, Ph.D. who lists the top two countries for defense spending.)
