Weapons For Sale – Human Rights Violations No Object……

31 Mar

Specific information is not always easy to come by when investigating theUK arms trade.  Some of the information is hidden amongst transactions undertaken by our Secret Services and their requirements ‘on the ground’.  What is easy to establish is that we openly do business with regimes that routinely carry out torture and attacks against their own people, particularly if they have differing political points of view than those of their leaders……

Amongst our clientele are Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, The United Arab Emirates and Yemen.  The hardware ranges from weapons and military vehicles to spare parts and surveillance equipment.  All of this is of course, above board, totally legal and sanctioned by the UK Government.  However, almost all of the above named countries are of concern to organisations such as Amnesty International for human rights abuses……

We are not alone in the pursuit of financial gain from other peoples’ misery.  The USA and Russia also have a booming industry in the supply of weaponry and services to reconstruct any country which is destroyed by it……

The west has a long and ‘proud’ history of supporting factions it deems useful to its own ends at the time, only to find it comes back to haunt them in later years.  In the example of Afghanistan; during the ‘Cold War’ when the  Russians invaded, the CIA pumped millions of dollars into arming the Mujahideen, later to become known as Al Qaeda which translates approximately to ‘the base’ after the data base of  its’ members which the CIA kept.  Similarly, the United States were more than happy to provide Sadam Hussein with military hardware and biological weapons to defeat the Iranians.  When looking for the WMD’s we were assured he possessed in 2001 they had only to check their own inventory…….

Just as is the case with all the grubby politics and wars either currently happening or about to take place, the countries taking the moral high ground and trying to dictate how the rest of the world should operate need to take a good long look in the mirror and ask themselves how they ended up in this position in the first place……

Meanwhile the backroom deals will continue to done, innocent lives will be lost and misery will be brought to hundreds of thousands of the world poorest people.  People who might have had a chance to better themselves had the dictatorships and corrupt governments in control spent a little less money on weapons and the preservation of power……

The world is controlled by less than 200 individuals & corporations whose only agenda is greed.  The sooner everyone is aware of this New World Order and the power it wields, the sooner the rest of the 6 billion other people will come together to remove it……
