Imitate the Irish, save 10 Billion Dollars!

Imitate the Irish, save 10 Billion Dollars! As a percentage of Gross Domestic Product, Canada spent twice what Ireland did on the military in 2006. Twice. Ireland is not part of NATO.

So A, we should take advantage of this situation and invade Ireland, or B, we should seriously consider reducing our (Canada's) military spending, eh.

Costa Rica spends 0.05% of border patrol and zip on the military. Meantime, we (Canada) are arming our border guards/glorified tax collectors (not counted in the 19.1 billion to be spent in 2009).

Canada has oil you say. Well, Mexico spent 0.4% of GDP on military spending in 2006. Less than half of what Canada spent (as a percentage of GDP).
