Media: The United States owes its leadership in arms exports to extremists.

Washington should not be proud of the first place in the list of leaders of exporting countries weaponsSince a significant part of it is supplied to the Gulf countries, Salon magazine commented on the US congress report on the global arms market.


Media: The United States owes its leadership in arms exports to extremists.


Over the past 5 years, the Obama administration has delivered $ 11,000bn worth of weapons to the Saudis. However, for some reason, the American publications do not notice the real consequences of this cooperation.

"Former US Senator Bob Graham described Islamist extremist groups such as IS and al-Qaida as" the product of Saudi ideals, Saudi money and Saudi organizational support. " US government officials confidentially confess that extremist groups like Al Qaeda are supported by wealthy Saudi Arabians, but they don’t advertise this much because the Gulf monarchies have the world's largest oil reserves, ”the magazine quotes RIA News.

“Qatar, another major importer of American weapons, also sponsors Islamist Salafi groups around the world,” the article says. - The resulting weapons are Saudi Arabia and Qatar mainly used in two conflicts. Firstly, they are brutally bombing the poorest country in the region, Yemen, and secondly, they are supplying weapons to Islamist groups in Syria. ”

“Saudi Arabia and Qatar, along with the Western allies and NATO member Turkey, are supported by Salafi groups like Al-Nusrah, which is an al-Qaida unit in Syria,” the author writes.

“The supply of weapons to these regimes is gasoline poured on the fire of extremism. By constantly increasing this military cooperation, ostensibly aimed at supporting the allies in the war on terror, the United States strengthens extremists, against which they claim, ”the magazine concludes.

    Not surprising. The USA ALWAYS benefited when there was a war ... it was like this in the First World War, and in the Second, it is happening now ... That's the whole point of their politics ...

      Money does not smell.
      One of the rules of capitalism.
      Looking for morale in the arms trade?
      What nonsense!
      In a war there are at least two sides of the confrontation and each has its own moral.
      Weapons are traded for profit.
      And wars are arranged for the sake of profit.
      Salon magazine writes about the arms trade because this topic interests the reader. So this magazine also brings profit to this magazine.
      And the more “dirty” this trade is filed, the more money the magazine has.

      Happy New Year everyone!
      Peaceful sky overhead.

      And let the Americans put the guns in their ass!

      Hooray!

        Eternal music! First, the Yankees print dollars, since it’s their right, but they are not needed without demand, and therefore they create gangs around the world and pay them with these bucks, and now they have come in handy. Then they sell weapons to these thugs and return these grandmas, but already washed. Dogs are well settled! am

      Russia on arms exports shares first place with the United States. These two countries significantly divorced from the rest of the "persecutors." But, unlike the Americans, our country plays honestly. Well, of course there are a couple of "marketing" moves, such as launching the "Caliber" ... What can you do, no one forbade anyone to show the goods in person. At the same time, this evil will be less on Earth.

      Yes, only before the outbreak of war was the work of others, and modern conflicts are directly planned and carried out under the leadership of the United States. At the same time, US policy operates in several directions, creating terrorist groups, rocking the situation with some countries and individual regions. At the same time, they do not disdain attempts to organize religious wars, as with ISIS, where Muslims were directly indicated in the name, although they are a tiny fraction of the Muslim world.

        The US economy has always been the "economy" of hyenas in the cemetery, as they like to look about their "zombies" devouring people, but they don’t want to look in the mirror, although it is taken from them without embellishment

    Weapons deliveries to these regimes are gas poured on the fire of extremism

    I wonder when the Americans did something else? Yes, in the 2nd World War there was such a thing, then there was such a need, but in the following years such examples can be searched with great difficulty, even such cases do not come to mind. War for them has long been essentially the basis of their economy.

      There was a need! So they themselves created this need! After the 29th year (depression hit), Hitler was quickly found. Fed him. Today is similar. Hit the crisis, feed the spirits. They organize refugee flows to the EU and bring weapons there. They made a fire on the outskirts. Then clashes will begin on different soils, the seizure of weapons depots, and the events of Iraq, Libya ...

    Americans don’t care at all about this matter. It’s important to sell (capitalism) their tame monkeys, we commit ourselves to buying our weapons. For others, we will buy old Soviet weapons and sell them to terrorists at a higher price. It is not surprising to wait for something else from them

    Just for America, the thesis “to whom war is and to whom mother is native” has already become the meaning of existence. And if you fantasize and imagine that suddenly everyone in the world has ceased to fight together, and moreover, they don’t want to fight at least get rid of it, for the United States this will be exactly the beginning of the apocalypse for the world in their understanding is falsehood and blood.

      Create buyers! So if the country is ruined, then you will inevitably become the buyer of everything. Its nothing. Everything is slain. And then your killer offers you a loan to buy his goods. And how can I refuse the buck and the goods? Checkmate. And the killer turns out to be a benefactor and a fighter for peace. We give loans for restoration! But in fact, enslavement. And some here yell, DO NOT GIVE LOANS! Learn students!

Akkuyu Turks were built until the head with a crowbar did not receive, then Erdogan satan howled! And who at the opening of the mosque with Putin and Ramzanka sat a Palestinian terrorist!

    Everything is logical, create a conflict zone and drive weapons there.
    Since World War II, the US military-industrial complex has the strongest lobby in Congress and is the coolest media sponsor because it has the largest budget in the world.

    How it turned out to cut down a lot of grandmas from the Second World War. Since then, they have not calmed down! Why wrinkle your forehead when you can "make a war" and sell weapons there at any price (not at a loss of course)! At the same time, you can yell at any side! HAPPY NEW YEAR MEN AND LADIES !!! love I'm leaving .... but maybe I'll be back drinks laughing laughing

    Certainly ... But not only. Let us recall how many countries are included in the NATO bloc. Arab monarchies, Israel. All of them "consume" American weapons. But not because they are better ... Simply: "It is necessary" ... wink

    the Yankees tasted big money back in the Russo-Japanese War and then in the First World War, especially in the Second World War, and now they can’t be pulled away from this feeding trough, to whom the war is and to whom the mother is native, and this is an axiom: it is clear who is the main the instigator of wars on Earth, and who should be judged by an international tribunal
