     "Coming to grips with ... U.S./CIA activities in broad numbers and figuring out how many people have been killed in the jungles of Laos or the hills of Nicaragua is very difficult. But, adding them up as best we can, we come up with a figure of six million people killed-and this is a minimum figure. Included are: one million killed in the Korean War, two million killed in the Vietnam War, 800,000 killed in Indonesia, one million in Cambodia, 20,000 killed in Angola ... and 22,000 killed in Nicaragua. These people would not have died if U.S. tax dollars had not been spent by the CIA to inflame tensions, finance covert political and military activities and destabilize societies. "
     -- John Stockwell, former CIA official and author

The Military Balance 2000/2001, from the International Institute for Strategic Studies, October 2000
"Arms procurement usually accounts for 20-30% of the military budgets of the larger arms-purchasing countries, while the largest portion is normally spent on operations, maintenance and personnel. Indeed, global military expenditure overall in 1999 was, at $809bn, much the same as in 1998 and available military budgets for 2000 and beyond do not indicate a decline." --
