    Should the UK sell arms to Saudi Arabia ?

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 23 Aug 2016, 11:51 am

    British government dismisses concerns about selling arms to Saudi Arabia

    The Government has been accused of being in 'denial and disarray' over the weapons exports.

    Find this report in The Independent online HERE




    This raises the question about: Should Britain sell arms to any of the middle Eastern countries ?

    Just because the selling of arms to Saudi Arabia, ( who is supposed to be a British ally ), and it is legal, is it right to help to continue the killing in the Middle East by supplying arms made in Britain ?

    The Brits and the Americans have always sold weapons to many countries that could turn these weapons against our own troops.

    One of the worst examples of this was when the French sold the Exocet missiles to Argentina and they were using against us in the Falklands war.

    All it is is legal gun-running.

    I have to agree with you there Zath', as any country that makes modern armaments do not seem to care who they sell them to.

    Money talks as far as arms-sales are concerned.

    Very true Angie.

    The Paveway guided bomb is even made in central Scotland, not far from where I live.

    Find more about this British-made weapon, HERE which is being sold to many of our allies and regularly used by us, America, and others in Middle East warzones.

    The words "warmongers" and "gun-runners" easily come to mind here.
