This is a topic which I believe will probably not sit well will many people. However, weapons are made for the destruction of life and property, which is not the ideal thing, however, they will the argument that these acquisitions are essential. Many of these countries stocking up on arms have lots of underdeveloped areas where there is much sufferation amongst the people. These people have a right to the resources which would enable a fair standard of development. Arms are not cheap, they cost huge sums of money. Would you agree that it would be appropriate that a sizeable portion of the expenditure on arms be diverted towards human development?
