Congratulations America. You’re #1!
Congratulations are in order for the United States of America for managing to be #1 in all the areas that count. The rest of the world could only dream of reaching such levels of accomplishment. The United States is:
- The world’s #1 weapons exporter, exporting mechanisms of death to nearly 100 countries in only 5 years.
- The world’s #1 possessor of weapons of mass destruction, among them a mind-boggling 6,200 nuclear warheads.
- The world’s #1 spender when it comes to its military budget, with a true cost of $1 trillion a year and counting. That’s almost as much as the rest of the world spends on defense combined.
- The U.S. is #1 when it comes to caging human beings behind bars, with its incarcerated population dwarfing the rest of the world’s. Despite having just 5% of the earth’s population, it holds an astonishing 25% of the earth’s incarcerated population
