The 10 Largest Armies in the World: Who Should We Be Afraid Of?

Even in our modern era of relative peace between nations, having one of the largest armies in the world is still of  significant importance. This is why countries the world over still devote huge portions of their budget to the self-defense of their nations. By neglecting their defenses, they would be in a potentially catastrophic situation should something unforeseen occur, and their nation comes under attack by a foreign threat, threatening their very way of life.

Here we will talk about the ten largest armies in the world, those countries who take their defense very seriously, and don’t rely on the goodwill of a seemingly peaceful and civilized world to protect them. There is a lot of debate on the merits of national defense, especially in the U.S, where their national security budget dwarfs the entire budget of every other nation combined. As America loses its place as the number one economy in the world to China however, will their national defense follow suit? We shall see.

When you’re done reading about the largest armies in the world, be sure to check out our previous cover story on The 9 Largest Private Armies In The World. What Are They Fighting For?, providing insight into just what those massive armies guard against. And now, let’s get the countdown started with a country in the turbulent Africa/Middle East zone.
