The immediate ability reads: +1 (victory point) if you have more [Military Buildings] in your station than ANY other player.

Does ANY imply that as long as you have at least more Military buildings than one other opponent, you receive the bonus point?
OR
Does ANY other player simply mean ALL other players?

It means all other players.

However, it does not mean all other players combined. You check with each other player separately and you have to have more than them.

If the card stated that you had to have more military locations than all other players, it could be interpreted as 'all other players together'.

What the card means is that you get the bonus if no other player has more military locations than you, and nobody has an equal amount military locations to you either.

If the designers meant that you need to have more locations than another player, then they would have said that. 'Another player', not 'any other player'.

I agree. As written it implies that you only have to beat one other player.
