Is Iran spending $57,077.60 per minute on a war in Texas? Saskatchewan?

Has Iran dedicated $1.03 trillion in fiscal year 2010 for "defense." Well, no. They have dedicated 6.2 billion. Saudi Arabia has decided to spend 25.4 billion. Israel's 2009 defense budget was 53.2 billion, with a little help from the U.S. Andorra doesn't have a defense budget because it's taken care of by France & Spain.

Israel has some 400 nuclear warheads.
