    Defense Contrators don't give a rip about WHO buys their products,
    anymore than a dairy farmer cares about WHO buys his milk.

    Business is Business.

    War Profiteers have been around since Cain killed Able.
    It's all about getting GAIN $.

    I think we should sell those weapons to all those war crazed countries. We can call in testing, and we don't have to ruin our country trying them out. Think what we have learned about our missile defense from Israel. Now that we have refined our ability to save lives, let's work on our ability to destroy life, and we can call in humanitarian aid because we can use the proceeds to pay for our country's social programs.

    We should just do what Ronald Reagan did. Sell arms directly to Iran and bypass the middle-man. It's much more efficient.

    Yeah, just like the weapon systems Ronald Reagan handed to Saddam Hussein and Central American thugs.

    We can probably trust Turkey more than we were able to trust them.

    In the meantime, our current President has been roundly criticized by some in the GOP for his reluctance to send to weapons the polyglut of rebels in Syria because he's afraid that if he does, the weapons will come back to haunt us.

    Say what you wish, but:

    Turkey has long been a NATO ally.

    A Turkish unit was decorated for valor by the US President for actions in Korea.
