    Good detective work. As SIPRI’s full form suggests; it is not an unbiased statistical body, but has a political objective…..purportedly, peace! The intention behind its rankings is to try and shame nations for their war making abilities. At no point, SIPRI tries to reconcile a nation’s security spending with that nation’s security environment.

    Another reason for the erroneous numbers; disappointment on part of the Swedish government at being able to score defence deals in India. According to SIPRI; “SIPRI research is objective and independent and SIPRI does not accept funding from any source that seeks to interfere with or influence SIPRI research outcomes.” One would need to be very naive to believe that SIPRI’s sponsors have no influence!
