Lethal Investment

Ammunition used to test assault rifles sits stacked in a shooting field at the Industria de Material Belico do Brasil (Imbel) weapons production facility in Itajuba, Brazil, on Oct. 5. The Brazilian government has signed contracts for military equipment worth more than $12 billion, and the Defense Ministry estimates that the armed forces will need annual investments of 20 billion reais ($9.8 billion) over the next two decades.
