USA spends more on military then 26 countries combined. Which 25 are allies. Their is no country trying to invade the USA and hasn't since Japan. USA can cut 85% of our military and still be the most powerful country in the world. 2013 USA spent $711 Billion on military for ( 1 COUNTRY ). These 12 countries China, Russia, UK, France, Japan, India, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Brazil, Italy, South Korea, Australia combined only spent $670.9 Billion on
military for ( 12 countries ).
USA has been a country for 227 years, we have spent 209 of those years at war. This is just another waste of $601 Billion dollars. It never ends. Just like the Boneyard at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base AZ. 21 Brand new C271 aircraft's worth $1.6 Billion scrapped. Like who cares, it's only $1.6 billion to throw away in trash. Why not it's not our money HAHAHA.
