U.S. Is Top Arms Seller to Developing World - New York Times

Everyone this days is talking about world peace and there's no where you can go nowadays where you won't find gatherings,associations,organizations,blogs,bloggers,professionals,the poor,sick,weak,women,children and men,young and old,all talking about living in peace and praying for the end of conflicts,wars and consequently diseases,poverty,orphans...and what have you?Surprisingly and funnily even governments,world political leaders,business mercenaries,multinationals and consorts are also in this group of goodwilled people.This funny surprise is obviously a boomerang for these same leaders,mercenaries and their pallies who keep on selling arms to their ruthless allies in developing countries(both government troops and rebel troops,depending on their needs) and thus shamefully encourage what theoritically they preach about.And as if it wasn't enough,they're fighting amongst themselves to be the biggest suppliers of arms to these countries,most of which are terribly poor but have possibilities to acquire these arms.If a country is this poor where does the money to buy deathly and expensive arms come from??
The United States maintained its role as the leading supplier of weapons to the developing world in 2006, followed by Russia and Britain, according to a Congressional study to be released Monday.The study makes clear also that the United States has signed weapons-sales agreements with nations whose records on democracy and human rights are subject to official criticism.click the link to continue.
