Military spending in pictures

The following is from David McCandless's informationisbeautiful.net and a blog he contributes to run by The Guardian called Datablog. Some of the graphics that McCandless produces are simply magnificent.

The following graphics of miltary spending are typically stunning and revealing as well.
They show just how dominant the United States is in the military arena, but how (relatively) easily it maintains this spending compared to other militarised countries.

As you may know from earlier posts I think that US 'declinism' is overdone by the popular media, the more sensationalists elements of academia, anti-American commentators of the left, and isolationalist US nationalists of the right.
