As a % of GDP, we're a little higher than almost all other countries, but not statistically out-of-whack. See Eritrea for example (21% of GDP spent on military).

One also has to account that our military is probably more spread out across the globe than every other country.
Thanks! Edited. Guess it's only more than the following top 11 countries combined.
