Top 10 Countries with the Highest Military Expenditures (2020):
- The United States — $778 Billion
- China — $252 Billion [Estimated]
- India — $72.9 Billion
- Russia — $61.7 Billion
- United Kingdom — $59.2 Billion
- Saudi Arabia — $57.5 Billion [Estimated]
- Germany — $52.8 Billion
- France — $52.7 Billion
- Japan — $49.1 Billion
- South Korea — $45.7 Billion
We left the Taliban with $84 Billion in weapons, equipment, and cash.

And not one person responsible will go to prison for this.
