(CNN)American taxpayers doled out $5.9 billion in foreign military financing in 2014, according to the government’s Foreign Assistance report — that’s roughly the GDP of Somalia. But where did the money go?
This map from the cost-information website howmuch.net shows the relative size of countries based on how much U.S. military aid they receive.
Again, the Middle East dominates the top five, thanks mostly to Israel. Here’s the total amount of aid the top countries received:
1. Israel: $3.1 billion
2. Egypt: $1.5 billion
3. Afghanistan: $1.1 billion
4. Jordan: $1 billion
5. Pakistan: $933 million
