    Military spending sets new record

    Military spending sets new record

    June 8th, 2009 in Breaking News, New World Disorder
    BBC NEWS | Business | Military spending sets new record.

    Global military spending rose 4% in 2008 to a record $1,464bn (£914bn) - up 45% since 1999, according to the Stockholm-based peace institute Sipri.

    In contrast with civilian aerospace and airlines, the defence industry remains healthy.

    “The global financial crisis has yet to have an impact on major arms companies’ revenues, profits and order backlogs,” Sipri said.
    “How is freedom measured, in individuals as in nations? By the resistance which has to be overcome, by the effort it costs to stay aloft. One would have to seek the highest type of free man where the greatest resistance is constantly being overcome: five steps from tyranny, near the threshold of the danger of servitude.”
