He said largest, not strongest. However, you are correct, his does depend on how you measure size. By number of troops, I believe that China is the largest. Measuring via monetary units is inaccurate because US troops are paid, other countries are conscripted and do not earn comparable wages for their service. Since payroll is the largest expense in the US military this is not an equal comparison. The US defense budget would be markedly lower if soldiers were conscripts.
