More matter with less art

Chart of the day is…

…one that shows the amount of trust that countries in The Americas place in their armed forces:
Notes:
1) Interesting to note that in The USA, the public is as well-trained as its army.
2) Mexico surprises me, frankly.
3) Chile trusts something that uses guns and gets heaps of metals generated cash to work with. This does not surprise.
4) At least Peru is true to form on this question. They trust nobody.
5) And what on earth could Argentines have against State run armed forces? Oh yeah…that small matter of 30,000 disappeared in the 70s…
