DN: US military shipments abroad hit record highs

The export volume of US military products in the 2015 fiscal year reached a record $ 46,6 billion, TASS The message of the weekly Defense News.

In 2014, armaments were supplied to $ 34, 2 billion, and in 2013, to $ 27,8 billion.

Pentagon spokesman Joseph Ricks told the weekly that he linked the increases in volume "to the fight against the extremist Islamic State in Iraq and Syria."

At the same time, he noted that next year a slight decline in indicators is expected, due to the “fall in oil prices and a reduction in the defense budgets of many countries.”

According to him, first of all, it concerns the US Middle Eastern allies.

As the newspaper writes, "supplies to this region are slowing down and, according to forecasts, should be reduced to $ 15 billion." But purchases of American equipment are growing in Eastern European countries and the APR.

According to the weekly, “Eastern European countries are seeking to procure weapons, as well as communications, intelligence and surveillance, which the US has the right to sell them. " This refers to the restrictions in force in the United States within the framework of control over the export of military and dual-use products.

    And how many weapons were delivered (the USA gave) or fell into the hands of terrorists? In my opinion enough.

        That is, the US foreign policy essentially drives the arms lobby. Need to sell - need to fight. Well, where is the lack of democracy in the world? lol

      Normal barter is a weapon in exchange for oil. And do not care who the terrorists or not, because business is business.

    These deliveries .... ISIS or what? ... as far as it is known, the Americans organized warehouses in Iraq and stuffed them with weapons and then turned it over to ISIS on a plausible pretext .... a brilliant legal operation to supply ISIS terrorists and the so-called moderate opposition , on the other hand, the Americans supplied arms and the legitimate government of IRAQ.

    This is how the United States is at war for its interests in a foreign country.

    In the Middle East they always fight, and if the Americans do not supply weapons, then we or the Chinese deliver these weapons or their analogues.

    So the war there is beneficial to everyone, both ours and yours. Plus, because of the war, oil-producing countries cannot restore their development and less black gold goes on the market, which is also beneficial for us, especially considering that it is still produced more than it is sold. So as long as a person is alive, as long as there is hatred between Sunite and Shiite, the defense exports of the USA, Russia, Europe and China will live.

    Serious Americans, businessmen, at first frightened half of the world with the Russian threat, and now, under the guise and rise in arms sales, they immediately increased. No wonder the game is on the nerves. And profit in your pocket.

    why is there not a word in the article about our sales volumes. Moreover, please note that our weapons are much cheaper. So we can assume that the volumes are not correctly compared in dollars. Only F-35 pulls how much in this rating. , not an article
