But that 20% is bigger in absolute numbers. The US is the biggest energy
consumer in the world. AFAIK the US accounts for around 40% of the total
world-wide energy consumption.

I wonder if that also goes for attacks over the Internet. (I hope I don't
offend anyone by talking about computer related security on this mailing list.)
There have been reports as to how vulnerable countries are for digital
terrorism, including the Netherlands. People have been talking about attacks
from the Internet, but there are of course more types of digital attacks. Like
taking over satellites and such. I wonder if countries think about this stuff
and how they think they will defend themselves against these threats.

The US is not alone in this, the five permanent members of the UN security
counsil are responsible for AFAIK 80 or 90% of all weapons exports in the
world. It is good business you know.
