How 'Weak' Is The US Military?
The U.S. spends more on its military than the next seven countries combined, but it's about how you spend that money.By Kate Grumke, Zach Toombs | December 15, 2015
The U.S. military is far from weak.
The U.S. puts more into its military budget than the next seven nations combined. We give more to the Pentagon now than we did at the peak of the Iraq War in 2007, and we spend twice as much as we did in 2001.
Of course, it’s about how you spend your money, not necessarily how much you spend.
