    The United States gives billions of dollars to support foreign militaries – an estimated $5.9 billion in 2014 alone to be exact, according to the U.S. State Government 2013-2015 Foreign Assistance report. Don’t get the idea that a huge number of countries’ militaries are raking in the cash, however. There is an enormous disparity between who gets the most U.S. aid and who gets the least. In fact, around 75 percent of the total $5.9 billion went to two countries, while the remaining 15 percent of the funds went to the other 72 countries’ militaries we support.


    The Middle East and Africa pulled in the most military aid (64 and 23 percent, respectively), but Asia and Latin America saw plenty of greenbacks as well when the top five are considered:

    1. Israel: $3.1 billion
    2. Egypt: $1.3 billion
    3. Iraq: $300 million
    4. Jordan: $300 million
    5. Pakistan: $280 million

    The amount of money given (and which countries it is given to) by the United States will obviously vary over the years, but the past three years have seen a consistent trend. There was $5.7 billion given in 2013, $5.9 billion in 2014 and $5.6 billion requested in 2015. Israel, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, and Pakistan topped the list all three years as well. With rising tensions and continued efforts to combat the Islamic State in the Middle East, a shift or decrease in the money spent doesn’t look like it will happen in the near future.
