Guns for buddies: US weapons sales surge overseas
US foreign military sales have shot over $50
billion. Another record-breaking year is expected thanks to US ally
Saudi Arabia, which accounts for three-fifths of the sum.
“We have already surpassed $50 billion in sales in the fiscal year
2012,” Andrew Shapiro, assistant secretary of state for
political-military affairs, told journalists on Thursday.
Though it is three months till the end of the fiscal year, the figure
already shows a 70 per cent increase over government-to-government
military deals in 2011. Last year also set a record for the US with
sales at some $30 billion.

So Obama and Hillary are currently
drafting a UN Treaty to ban all guns globally, yet at the same time,
they are giving guns and military hardware to other countries for oil
and other things.
Does anyone besides me see a BIG contradiction here?
I smell a setup and/or more excuses to go to war in the future. Supply both sides and see who wins just like WWI and WWII.
