Arms spending unaffected by financial crisis, says thinktank


www.guardian.co.uk

The US accounted for more than half of the total increase, though arms spending increased fastest in Asian countries, with China raising its military expenditure most, followed by India. Global spending has risen by nearly 50% over the past decade, said Sipri.

The US headed the list of the world's top 10 arms buyers last year, spending $661bn on military equipment. It was followed by China (spending an estimated $100bn), France ($63.9bn), Britain ($58.3bn), Russia (an estimated $53.3bn) and Japan ($51.8bn), according to the report.

Gee, who woulda thunk it?

This, to me, signifies THE greatest problem on the entire earth right now---The war industry, the military industrial complex, and the very few in high places keeping all the rest of the world in continual conflict, while the vast majority suffer as a consequence to keep lining the pockets of these heathens running this industry of death and destruction.

I wonder if ever there will come a day when the 'little people' of this world rise up, en-masse, and finally say, "NO MORE".

Hey, I can at least dream of the day...

Sigh.
