WHERE DO ALL THOSE DEADLY TOYS COME FROM?
Where do desperately poor Third World countries, with no food to eat and no potable water to drink, who use the bushes for a toilet and sleep out under the stars, get all those expensive deadly weapons and the boatloads of ammunition they use to load them with?
They get them from the United Nations Security Council or should I say from the reigning members of that Council. Germany, Russia, France, Great Britain, China, and of course, at the top of the list, The United States. In fact, the USA supplies the largest percentage of arms and ammunition to these nations, most of whose people can't afford to eat a bowl of crickets.
I thought about this during the recent assault on that shopping center in Nairobi which killed 65 people and left hundreds more wounded. Some, as of this writing, still remain hostages inside the Westgate Mall, an upscale shopping complex built by the Israeli's. By the way, Israel is also a supplier of arms and ammunition to Somalia and other Third World countries even though we, the United States, give Israel military assistance. There is not a doubt in any diplomat's mind that Al Qaeda has also obtained these weapons by liberating them from the forces they're fighting.
While we wring our hands and fret over worldwide terrorism and the death and destruction it brings to millions of innocent people, we supply these assassins with the firepower to kill not only Kenyan's, but American citizens as well.
Why is it, with all the political bitching and moaning from the left and the right we hear nightly on the news networks, how we have to be alert and spend more taxpayer dollars to stop terrorism, we never hear anything about how we make it possible for rebels, militants, and anti-government groups to go up against the regimes they intend to overthrow by sending them millions in arms and ammunition that enable them to wage war? Never. Never once have I ever heard a news channel report that these sales are taking place.
So when the skinny, ragged rebels with little to eat or drink show up with .45's and AK-47's and enough ammo to keep them stocked up for a year pull off these stunts, you'll know where they got all those wonderful toys. From the same folks who brought us the United Nations Security Council and it's most powerful members of that council who seem to have no problem keeping these wars going while trying to convince the rest of us that the civilized world needs to put a stop to the violence the sitting members of the United Nations Security Council is responsible for in the first place.
