The Weapons of Oppression "Made in the USA"

Most of the time, mainstream news organizations are loathe to cover the arms trade. Sometimes, though, its consequences are impossible to ignore. This is one of those times. Anyone with internet access can see American weapons, provided to Hosni Mubarak’s deeply unpopular government, on the other side of what is widely viewed as a democratic uprising.

  1. Of course, if Egypt follows the path of Iran, and its 1970s revolution, those weapons will have to be deemed weapons of peace, Unless, of course, if you're a liberal in which case that fact will be ignored and the problem will be blamed on whatever Republican is in office.

    I wouldn't read too much into it. Egypt has an army. They need weapons. They're going to buy them from someone.
