Posted by seamar_116 on 10/11/2012 7:12:00 PM (view original):A better way to analyze is by a percentage of the nations GDP.
<<You are correct about the GDP numbers. Was looking as some old data.>>
Show me what data you were looking at. I believe you are lying about that too.
And you also ignore that the US spends as much as the next 14 nations combined. Are we also worried about the UK, France, Germany, Japan, India, Brazil, South Korea to name a few on that list?
And again, I am requesting the "old data" that you were
pulling out your *** "looking as." (sic)
It is a better way to analyze because it isnt just static dollars. It takes into account a nations standing in the community of nations.
It is hard to visualize exactly how much a nation like Belgium spending is in relation to us.
A percentage of GDP shows a common standard.
So Russia at 3.9 spends less than the US at 4.7.
You are the only guy I know that gets upset when I admit you are right.
