World’s leading countries spend too much of their war preparations. A new arms race has been gathering pace in the world recently, and even the global economic setback does not seem to be a reason to stop the race.

Fear mongering propaganda.
This is what happens when people mis-understand the reasons for military armament and maneuvers.
It's a sad day when were all planning for a war that doesn't really have a chance of happening in the near future.

The world is unstable, not right now, not yesterday, not tomorrow, but always. Are the chances of WW3 breaking out high? No, but it could happen, because the world is unstable, and we cannot predict it.

look through the history books, its nothing but war after war after war
so YES, there WILL be another WAR 100% Guaranteed
it is very profitable after all for those who make weapons
you know what would be "NEWS" to me? if we didnt have another arms race for once

I hope we can finally LEARN from history. Today is definitely different from history because people finally live nice lives.

When we come to the end of "cheap" oil, I'm sure there will be huge wars. Countries will do anything to feed its people. I'm sure that time is getting close, maybe in a couple of decades. Now is the time for countries to stock up on arms and not wait til it is too late.
