Firstly, we must ask if they are fully able to address their own needs. China has the money to spend a ton on its military, but if redirected, would it be enough to radically help the hundreds of millions of poor people inside its borders? If so, is it still the responsibility of developed nations to step in if a middle-income country is using its wealth irresponsibly? But what about Botswana, which spends quite a bit less on its military, but is still groaning under the weight of its HIV epidemic and widespread unemployment?
