Description
 
Discusses how perhaps no single policy is more at odds with Pres. Bush’s pledge to “end tyranny in our world” than the U.S.’s role as the world’s leading arms exporting nation. Although arms sales are often justified on the basis of their purported benefits, from securing access to overseas military facilities to rewarding coalition allies in conflicts such as the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan, these alleged benefits often come at a high price. All too often U.S. arms transfers end up fueling conflict, arming human rights abusers, or falling into the hands of U.S. adversaries.  Far from serving as a force for security & stability, U.S. weapons sales frequently serve to empower unstable, undemocratic regimes to the detriment of U.S. & global security.
