Proposed Global Defense Force to replace individual national militaries. The cost to each nation would be .5% of each member nation's GDP or Gross
Domestic product. Every member nation would be protected by the GDF from external enemies and each member nation would put up .5% of their nation's
annual earnings into this effort. The member nations would also be required to provide the same .5% of their national population as conscripts for the
GDF. This would make the total strength of the GDF at about 15,000,000 men and women and provide an estimated budget based on 2010 figures at $291.1
As a note the FY 2010, Department of Defense spending amounts to 4.7% of the USA GDP. This number amounted to $3.4 trillion in 2010. The savings to
the US for such a scheme would amount to more than 3 trillion annually. Globally the world would save an estimated 5 trillion annually if every nation
was to become a member.
The idea would allow member nations to save money and would ensure international cooperation and alignment. Risks would be reduced due to the
interdependence of all nations in global security. Each nation would also be allowed to have police forces but they would be restricted to domestic
The object of this is to eliminate the need for war and make it very hard for a single nation to advance against any other nation. Where the united
nations has failed is in providing security for the world. The nations of the world have relied on the United States for a long time now to provide
this international security force. The fact is that the US has become bankrupt from this international police activity.
The world needs to police itself. The United States needs to contribute its fair share but should be replaced as world police force by the truly
global defense force the GDF.
Well what do you think?
