The Top 10 Military Powers In The World

The Top 10 Military Powers In The World

Human nature seems to be centered around the belief that conflict brings about positive change. Why else is it that out of all the years that the human species has inhabited this planet that we have only seen, roughly, 300 years of complete peace.
This is a very depressing statistic. Having the need to constantly shed our brother’s blood only proves that we have yet to evolve into the most superior beings.
This said, countries are required to build armies that will be able to protect them from all the other countries that are looking to take their land and resources. Here is a list of the 10 most powerful armies in the world.
