Spreading Peace


One of the benefits of being friends with America is that you get cheap weapons. We do this to help spread peace. As Kosovo becomes a new country, we're sending them gifts.

WASHINGTON (AFP) - President George W. Bush authorized Wednesday supplying Kosovo with weapons, signaling the establishment of government-to-government relations after recognizing its independence, the White House said.

A senior official said the authorization followed US recognition of Kosovo's independence and was part of the normal process of establishing relations with a new government.

Anybody besides me see something wrong with this mindset in the long run? The weapons industry is one of a few that are making money (the prison industry is doing well) and I guess they need more customers. But how many weapons does the world need?
