I am very surprised at these numbers. I would never have thought the USA to be the top military spender.

We need to spend money for our military. They keep us safe and should be compensated for it. I feel like they should have more money.

While seeing the actual numbers as I opened it, it really isn't too surprising. We have our fingers in many many pies.

I am not completely surprised by this actually. Wish we spent more on the soldiers salaries though

i would have never imagined that so much money is spent in military stuff with this kind of money we would have probably invented time travel

If only that money was being wisely spent to give our troops the beat of everything to keep them safe. Too much of it is going to contractors out to make a buck.

I wish we had more julitary spending. I love this infographics, they are very informative and detailed.
Irene | 05.23.16 @ 23:31
I didn't think some of those countries had that much to spend

We spend SO much more than any other country! I knew it was a lot, but didn't realize how we stacked up worldwide. Eye-opening!

This is amazing to see all put together into one graphic. Really eye-opening. I wish the soldiers and families saw more of this money!

It's rather crazy how much we end up spending on military spending. but for our size and such, population wise, It doesn't really surprise me.
Jo Ann | 05.24.16 @ 00:09
It is really shocking to see how much we spend compared to other countries of the world. It is a shame that these countries can't find something better to do with the money. Perhaps some serious Peacekeeping.

This is as it should be. Wish we would start building up again.
