Arming the evildoers

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Brad Plumer has a good post up on America's highly "lucrative" arms business, specifically on how the U.S. arms most of the "countries involved in active conflicts around the world," including its own enemies: "not uncommon for us to end up fighting against the same armies we equip." For example, many of America's "adversaries or potential adversaries" have "fleets of U.S.-built F-16s".

All part of the military-industrial complex. So much for benevolent hegemony.
