From what I hear, the British military is crap compared to what it used to be, is no longer a serious fighting force and from what I can tell the Royal Navy is no longer much better than the US Coast Guard. Russia's armed forces are in shambles and they can't even afford a budget 1/60th of that of the US. There's obviously no point in bringing Germany and France into the discussion. Just what's going to happen to other countries' militaries in the future? Can anyone defend his own country or does everyone nowadays need to rely entirely on Uncle Scam to do it for him?

It has been reported that the Chinese are increasing their military budget by about 12-15 percent. They say it is for defense purposes but I guess only time will bear that out.
