    “The total international trade in arms now worth about $100bn (¬£74bn) per year, Pieter Wezeman, senior researcher at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (Sipri), tells the BBC.” https://www.bbc.com/news/business-43873518
    “In its latest figures, the defence industry think tank says that major weapons sales in the five years to 2017 were 10% higher than in 2008-12.
    And it is the United States that is extending its lead as the globe’s number one arms exporter, adds Sipri. It estimates that the US now accounts for 34% of all global arms sales, up from 30% five years ago, and are now at their highest level since the late 1990s.”
