United States Flooding World With Weapons

The Congressional Research Service’s arms sales report came out this week, and, once again, the United States has proven itself to be the frontrunner in the death-dealing business. In 2010, more than half of all exported weapons came from America.

As sad as it must be to know your nation is the world’s biggest war-profiteer, it must be even worse knowing that a sizable portion of your fellow citizens look upon these figures with reverence. As if arming the world is something to be proud of… ‘Yes! We are helping the world’s people to gain their freedom and democracy via a barrel of a gun.’

Yeah, right. Is that the same democracy and freedom currently being enjoyed by Iraqis and Afghans?

In all seriousness, it’s time for Americans to wake up and see what they are doing to the world. Exporting war and weapons is no way to build peace. Nor is there any honor in making a living off getting people killed.
