1.2 billion sure could feed one heck of a lot of starving children, that's for sure.
Obviously, military spending is an important thing for a country, but when military spending is in the hundreds of billions of dollars, you know things have gone too far. The US spends way too much money on its military, even for a country at war. 100 billion could probably help out cancer research too. Actually, it could help a lot of things. An up to date military is fairly necessarry, but a gigantic Godzilla powerhouse of an updated military, is not.
