Guns and Butter

John Heartfield (Helmut Herzfeld).


"We have no butter... but I ask you, would you rather have
guns or butter?"

Hermann Göring.

According to the Stockholm peace institute SIPRI

in a press release today

global military spending reached a record $1,464bn in

"The global financial crisis has yet to have an impact on major
arms companies' revenues, profits and order backlogs."

Oh I'm so relieved, thought we'd all be out on the streets soon
because of the crisis.
