    There are numerous countries involved in the arms trade. If not from the UK, USA etc, the arms could always be obtained.

    The arms trade is no better than the heroin dealers on the street corner they profit out of death and destruction just like hard drugs like heroin inflict. The government should be encouraging the development of other industries to replace these exports and stop supplying arms to other countries that could be used against us like Argentina did in the Falklands.

    My husband's company sells British and european manufactured arms for World-wide export. Mainly to Israel, India, North and South america. But also to other countries. Why on Earth shouldn't we profit from other people's inability to live peacefully and co-operatively ? It has given us a very comfortablew lifestyle.

    So basically, the arms trade is with pretty much any petty dictator no matter how ethically bankrupt. It's almost like every politician and corporate executive thinks of human lives as a worthless commodity to splurge in the pursuit of their own power and wealth. As is tradition going back hundreds of years of British history.

    Just remember, this week's friend is next week's well-trained and heavily armed terrorist.

    in order to keep peace, giving everyone weapons is the best choice so they would afraid to attack eachother.
    and that's why guns are made for peace in America

    This is how free market enterprise should work. I just wish all commodities are subject to free market principles. Get rid of taxes, tariffs and other regressive and harmful instruments which stifle natural growth of all markets
