Pregnant activist crashes glitzy arms industry dinner, urges guests ‘consider career change’ (http://rt.com/uk/229675-arms-industry-profit-bloodshed/)


The UK arms industry, which profits from brokering arms deals with questionable regimes and conflict-ridden states worldwide, is backed and subsidized by the British government.

Tuesday’s annual dinner, which cost attendees £246 per head, was hosted by ADS – a trade body for British Aerospace, and other defense, security and space companies. The group represents a collective of the world’s 50 largest arms firms.

The opulent soiree was attended by Britain’s Business Secretary Vince Cable, the representatives of 100 arms firms across the globe, over 40 British MPs, 30 civil servants, and 30 Ministry of Defence (MoD) personnel.



Andrew Smith, of UK think tank Campaign Against The Arms Trade (CAAT), said the event was a hotbed of lobbying.

“The fact that arms dealers were swilling champagne with over 40 MPs is a disgrace and shows the extent of the arms trade's connections and political lobbying,” he added.

Now it makes complete sense why Cameron, Blair and Boris 'AK-47' Churchill are so keen to keep us in perpetual war. So just how much of a per centage do arms sales make up of our GDP I wonder?

If you leave human beings alone they will fight irrespective of whether these people are involved. So you might as well try to control the fighting and the weapons that are used. Otherwise what do you suggest. we close down our arms business just to satisfy people like you? if we did what do you think would happen?

You can take a moral high ground and say I would rather our industry focused on something more worthwhile.

FFS I worry about how stupid some of you people are.

The easiest thing in the world is to be critical and cynical. To offer an alternative is the real challenge

Should have dropped the bomb on Moscow in 45.

Would have saved the world from a failed political system arming every fookin fruitloop and their dog for the next 40 years.

Meanwhile, the press would rather focus on Putin's alleged Aspergers:

Vladimir Putin suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, Pentagon report claims - Telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/vladimir-putin/11392680/Vladimir-Putin-suffers-from-Aspergers-syndrome-Pentagon-report-claims.html)

Who knows, maybe he does "suffer" from it, maybe not. They could perhaps point to the fact that the majority of politicians are sociopaths or narcissists, far more dangerous when in a position of government, but then it wouldn't be Putin alone.
