Our Military Spending

According to FP Security Brief, U.S. military spending reached $649 billion dollars in 2018.

“The U.S.-China angle. U.S. military spending reached $649 billion in 2018, and it spends more on the military than the next eight countries combined, SIPRI research shows. China, by comparison, spent $250 billion–the 24th consecutive year it has increased its military spending.”

This is ridiculous overkill, and there are a lot better things we could be spending money on. We should be ashamed.
