United States war profiteers profit from US soldiers’ deaths


From CNSNews.com, a self styled “Right News” site in the USA:

Technology that is legal to buy and sell within the U.S. but is illegal to export because of its potential military applications has been used to build weapons deployed against U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan because of loose export controls, according to a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report issued last week.

This, ladies and gentlemen Rightist spin doctors of CNSNews, used to be called “free enterprise” and “globalisation” by you, and praised during the Bush administration. No, you cannot blame the Obama presidency for the origins of this. “Free enterprise”, especially by war profiteers, always used to be defended by your fellow conservatives, and still is, eg, by Canadian conservatives.
