Stockholm international Peace Research Institute reported that ~
World military expenditures average around $1 trillion a year. That means an astronomical $2 million are spent
worldwide on the military every minute, and U.S. military spending accounts for half of this.
A $30 billion, 10-yr plan to provide clean water to the poor of developing world would cost just 10 days of military spending. Eighteen days of military spending yearly could eradicate malnutrition worldwide. Experts believe that $200 million, or
about 3-hours of military spending, could wipe out the diseases of diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, measles and
polio, which together kill 4 million children every year.
"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children...Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron...Is there no other way the world may live?" ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower
Final Thought ~
America's Military-Industrial Complex is the right arm of Anglo-American establishment, the one they
can't live without, which also employ tens of millions of majority Anglo-Americans population (as well as
in Government agencies, CIA, NSA, Defense department agencies, etc).
So they are going to keep it alive, thrive and prosper at all costs.
Unfortunately, this means they are going to continue playing war/fear dramas, creating trouble and
conflicts worldwide, in order to keep selling the arms and this whole industries rolling, so as to justify
