Here are the top 10 strongest armies in the world...

1.Name: U.S.A.
Military Manpower: 144,354,117 troops
Nukes: About 12,000

Where did you get those numbers? There's no way America has 144 million troops considering that the entire population is only 330 million. That would mean almost half the population is in the military!

So what they mean is people are still pissed that part of the "defense spending" is being given out in the form of sponsorships by the marines.

Exactly.

I suspect the US could easily slash its military spendng by 10% via looking at effeciencies like this, and still be able to project power across the globe.

Efficacy is the least of our worries. Try stop spending millions of dollars per plane on a jet we never use because we get into very few dog fights with terrorists.

No what this means is the Culinary Union is continuing to use their weight against the Fertitta brothers for not allowing Unionized workers in their casinos.

Lol that's a good one, +rep to you, SIR!

As for the news, I don't really care one way or the other. The UFC will find a new sponsor.

Exactly! According to that, most of the countries (USA, China, India etc.) listed have more than HALF their populations enlisted in the military in some way! That would be EVERY MALE ADULT in the country, and a good chunk of the females.

Are they counting anyone who's ever looked at a military brochure? I'm calling bs.
