After all this Ukraine stuff, I was looking into all of the of the humanitarian atrocities committed by both sides. This was one of those down the rabbit hole moments where you just click and click, until I got to where the estimated average of any nation's military may stand at. The U.S., obviously, stands at a respectable number... but accounting for Militia, it stands at a respectable zero in comparison to the multi-millions every top ten or so nation has.
Is it because Wikipedia considers the National Guard to be that, or that most countries believe that anyone can eventually pick up a gun during any kind of invasion?
Just looking for your thoughts.
