New Thoughts On Last Previous Post

Earlier, I opined that  either oil or nuclear weapons or both could be why we are in Afghanistan.  It occurs to me now that there could be another reason.

The United States is the world’s biggest exporter of arms and armament. We sell ten times more arms than our nearest competitor, which happens to be Italy.   Could our “national interest” be to stay in Iraq and Afghanistan to keep other countries buying arms.

I don’t know where those “arms” are made, but the US parent company is the one whose stockholders will benefit.

Balance of Payments (BOP) and international trade figures would be affected in a positive manner for the US.
