8.  Iran

Iran has one of the best small forces in the world.  Half of this countries government’s income goes towards defense.  Their modern day military was first founded in 1923 and currently boasts over 500,000 active members.  In addition, its defense budget of $10 billion has allowed more aircraft than the US and the UK combined and almost the same amount of aircraft and helicopters as China, a country with a much larger force and budget.
