Worldwide Armaments Spending €316,159,930,385 since 1st January

The numbers on this clock and the one immediately above when taken together mean that €45 ($58) per person (and that includes the undernourished children above) has been spent on armaments during the first 3 months of 2013. By the end of 2013, if the planet is still supporting life as we know it, the figure will be over €180 ($232) per person.

Converts to: $406,139,046,494

Joint Declaration by President Roosevelt of the United States and Prime Minister Winston Churchill of the United Kingdom on 12th August 1941: ". . . they believe that all the nations of the world, for realistic as well as spiritual reasons, must come to the abandonment of the use of force. Since no future peace can be maintained if land, sea, or air armaments continue to be employed by nations which threaten, or may threaten, aggression outside their frontiers . . . "
