Monkeys with Guns

We see these pictures of fanatics with guns, roaming around treeless mountains.
These people don’t even have shoes, or enough food. Yet, somehow they have
rifles and ammo, and mortars, and even rocket launchers. Where do they get
this stuff? Why are we fighting in such remote places? Why are we sending
our kids there to get killed?

With White House Push, U.S. Arms Sales Rise Sharply

“From tanks, helicopters and fighter jets to missiles,
remotely piloted aircraft and even warships, the
Department of Defense has agreed so far this fiscal
year to sell or transfer more than $32 billion in
weapons and other military equipment to foreign
governments, compared with $12 billion in 2005.”

Weapons! Is that what we want our tax money going to?
