Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the (annual) Defense budget in France is about 30 billion euros. But god knows how much private and company capital is linked to Defense ...

Also, I have no idea how much of that budget is actually spent usefully (coastal pollution watch by the Navy, gendarmerie, etc).

But we all know the global military budget is very high and massively fed by the US's own budget.
