Quote: “Greenpeace conducted an analysis of the latest SIPRI report and the organization examined the quantities of healthcare items that could be purchased for the unit price of various pieces of military hardware. For example, a U.S. Navy Virginia class nuclear powered attack submarine has a unit price of some $2.8 billion and that money could pay for just over 9,000 ambulances. Likewise, Greenpeace claims that the money required to purchase a FREMM class multipurpose frigate could also pay more than 10,600 doctors for a year.”
