4. Most counties in Europe spend 3% to 5% on defense.
Edited on Tue Jan-18-11 10:07 AM by Statistical
Most citizens (paranoid or not) are unwilling to live in a country that spends nothing on defense (notable exception being Switzerland).

Germany spend <2% of GDP on defense. Needed or not it saves them billions every year. They get all the benefits of large defense budget without any of the cost. You can call it whatever you want but it is a free defense. Well not free. It is paid for by you and me.
