In a word, Wow. I mean, you always hear that the United States is a military juggernaut. Then you see the data to prove it.

Wow. Saudi Arabia (pop 27 million) ain’t looking so shabby either.

Worth noting that the US is the largest exporter of arms in the world, so many other nations – in particular the despotic House of Saud (arguably the most ruthless regime in the Mid East and the top military spender by GDP in the world) – are of a piece with the US military-industrial-complex. Obama signed a massive arms deal with SA during his1st term.
