ezs note:  Let's do a little math for you.  In 2014, the United States spent 581.0 billion dollars on defense spending.  In China, during the same period, they spent 129.4 billion dollars. What this means is even if we spent the equivalent of the entire Chinese amount on transgender operations rather than defense spending,  we would still have almost double what the Chinese spend. (451.6)
