Arms sales to developing countries rising again

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Whenever the rich nations of the world talk about helping the poor or developing countries, the subject of arms sales never seems to make the list. Take a quick glance at who is cashing in and it is clear why this gets little attention. The US is raking in billions per year from selling weapons, followed by Russia, UK, Israel and France. Other world leaders such as Germany and Italy are right up there as well. Are weapons really that critical to the developing world or are they part of the problem and are the rich countries feeding on the insecurities of those people?
