So I’m watching Lord or War, it’s a movie about arms dealings. At the end of the movie during the credits, an interesting point was made. The top five arms dealers are the U.S., the U.K., France Russia and China. Coincidently, all five are also permanent members on the U.N. Security Council. The Security Council is the part of the UN charged with maintaining peace and security among nations.
The entire African continent is virtually at war, and these five countries supply the majority of the weapons, while maintaining that they are trying to create peace and stability within the region. That’s like getting someone hooked on drugs then putting them in rehab just long enough to clean up and return to drugs.
Oh..wait a minute….
