GFP provides a unique analytical display of data covering global military powers with statistics compiled through various sources. All manner of countries are considered in the ranking, a spectrum helping to produce a near-complete comparison of relative military strengths from across the globe. The user should note that nuclear capability is not taken into account for the final ranking for this listing is purely a "numbers game" meant to spark debate and including nuclear weapons would clearly defeat its purpose. Therefore GFP comparisons are for consideration in a conventional war based solely on each individual nation's capabilities on land, at sea and through the air while including logistical and financial aspects when waging total war. Sources are stated whenever possible though some statistics are estimated if official numbers are not available.

Final Thoughts
It goes without saying that lists such can be completely subjective, though the GFP intention is to be wholly unbiased. The final GFP rankings are based on a formula taking some 45 factors into account and compiling totals against each country, applying bonuses and penalties as needed to generate this list.

The worlds third greatest weapon dealer does not even make the top 10. That's just sad. :rolleyes:

I guess the most insane figure is the military spending of the US compared to the other countries though. Insanity.

I noticed that unbelievable isnít it Year on year they never reduce their spending power on military it increases. They are so scared of someone taking over as the worlds military might they would rather see the country go bankrupt than decrease the spending.

Well the "go bankrupt achievement" has been collected quite some time ago. Not only from the US of course. I mean in the end the numbers on spending really doesn't matter at all since the whole system is bogus anyway, but still it is worth a good laugh or two. :P
