Global military spending at levels not seen since Cold War

Global military expenditure reached its highest level in 2018 since the end of the Cold War, fueled by increased spending in the US and China. The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said overall global military spending in 2018 hit $1.82 trillion, up 2.6 per cent on the previous year. US military spending rose 4.6 per cent last year to reach $649 billion.

The usa military budget is a national disgrace. We should be using that money for food, education, healthcare, and shelter for working class people.
