China and Russia spend 65 and 50 billions respectively. France and UK with 45 and 42.8 billion dollars have the subsequent grades respectively.
During the past seven years, US military budget has increased substantially. Such a rise is mostly related to the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan. In this report it is mentioned that, the announced 623 billion USD budget does not include US supports to Egypt and Israel. It is also mentioned that such a budget is 29 times the total military budgets of Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Libya, Sudan and Syria. None of those countries have good relations with US government .As stated in that report; those countries spend a total sum of 14.650 billion dollars on their military defense affairs.
We should know that so far, even with small threats, US government has attacked to its enemies and started wars. While most of the Democrats presidency candidate in USA are still talking about developing this affair.
Hillary Clinton says that she will try to develop and modernize her country military power, so the need for long occupation of other countries shall reduce. John Edwards said that he will double the military budget. Barak Obama says that they should immediately develop the power of their military forces, in order to regain the world leadership .He believes that a strong military force will keep and establish the global peace. He is right about his last sentence .But when you look at the present US military budget and the way US government is acting in the world ,you will realize what is really behind all these disgusting propagandas.
